Everyday Carry

Photography by Emily Long

Essentials for every day vary from man to man. The adventurer might require a multi-tool and flashlight, while the scholar must have pen and paper to write down his thoughts. The minimalist needs only his phone, keys, and wallet, while the Eagle Scout has a bag in tow with an extra set for a friend in need.
