Whether you’re dealing with a threat from a street thug, find yourself in the middle of a natural disaster or you just need to quickly tear through that annoying plastic clamshell packaging, the best tools to deal with unexpected situations are the ones you have at your immediate disposal. What makes your everyday carry gear so important is that you have it on you at all times, ready to use at a moment’s notice.

Sure, you might have the perfect tool for the job on your workbench at home, but that does you no good when you’re out and about. What items you choose to carry can help make your day a bit easier or, in extreme cases, even save your life. Because everyone’s situation is different, it’s important to choose which tools are right for you.

In the above gallery is the Practical Selection and Executive Selection everyday carry setups. Here is a list of the items in both:
