Everyday carry is what people intentionally carry in their pockets or purses on a daily basis to respond to various needs or crises. It's a discussion point on the Internet as people try to select equipment that keeps them in a state of readiness without compromising too much on weight, cost or variability. Common items include knives, multitools, handguns, lighters, flashlights, smartphones and notepads. The idea is, like the Boy Scout motto, to be prepared. In that spirit, John C. Daub asks what kids should carry in their pockets every day and makes a few suggestions, such as a keyring, a small flashlight, a multitool and cash.
My own children are too young for any of this, but I like the idea of getting them ready to face problems on their own with the right pocket equipment.
What do you think kids should carry around on an everyday basis?
