Everyday Carry – Metal Edition

Everyday Carry is a minimalist approach of picking only the essential gear that will help get you through a day, and doing it with style and simplicity. It seems just about every day, some new product comes out that we feel we can’t live without, from the latest iPhone to the coolest new camera. At some point, it all just becomes overwhelming, and before long we are carting around an entire backpack full of gear that is unnecessary and makes us look like we are off for a week-long trip to the mountains, instead of just heading down to the local coffee shop for a morning of productivity. We tend to carry far more than we need, and more often than not, it is for a sense of security – we don’t want to be left empty handed or at a loss in any situation. But the time has come to be unburdened. Let’s parry back on the physical stuff, and enjoy the benefits of packing light with the minimalist Everyday Carry – Metal Edition.
