Everyday Carry Blog Commentary: Off Duty EDC (SWAT/Flight Medic) New 2023 by PrepMedic
Hello, EDC enthusiasts! Today, we’re diving into a fresh video from PrepMedic, a channel that’s been a staple in the EDC community for its insightful takes on gear and setups. The video titled “Off Duty EDC (SWAT/Flight Medic) New 2023” offers a comprehensive look into the creator’s updated everyday carry. Let’s break it down.
Who is PrepMedic?
For those unfamiliar with PrepMedic, the creator, Sam, boasts a rich professional background spanning law enforcement, SWAT paramedicine, street paramedicine, and flight paramedicine. This vast experience shapes his EDC choices, ensuring they’re both practical and rooted in real-world needs.
- Keys with AirTag: Like many of us, Sam carries his keys, but with a twist. He’s added an AirTag, Apple’s nifty little device tracker. Given how often keys can be misplaced, having a way to chime and locate them using a navigation app is a game-changer.
- Wallet from Pharaoh Concepts: Moving away from a single stack wallet, Sam now uses a foldable wallet from Pharaoh Concepts. It’s minimalist, flat, and comfortable to sit on, even in the car. The wallet’s muted colors, especially the wolf gray, add a touch of sophistication. It accommodates cash, a license, concealed carry permit, cards, and insurance details with ease.
- iPhone 13 Pro Max with Juggernaut Case: Sam’s phone choice is the iPhone 13 Pro Max, one of Apple’s largest offerings. He values the camera quality, which is crucial for impromptu filming. The Juggernaut case, while bulky for everyday use, offers robust protection. Its primary feature is its compatibility with Sam’s plate carrier, allowing it to function as a body camera. This is especially useful for capturing POV footage at the range.
PrepMedic’s video serves as a reminder that EDC is deeply personal. What one person finds essential might be excessive or insufficient for another. It’s all about finding what fits your lifestyle, needs, and preferences. Sam’s choices reflect a blend of practicality and personal preference, making his EDC both functional and uniquely his own.
For the full experience and to see what other gear Sam carries, be sure to watch the video on his channel. And as always, keep refining your carry and stay prepared!
