The phrase “everyday carry” is simple, referring to the the carrying of various objects on one’s person everyday.
However, some critics seem to think that things shouldn’t be carried unless they’re actually used everyday. They suggest that if it’s not always useful it shouldn’t take up pocket space.
It’s an interesting idea but, ultimately, lacking merit.
Everyone carries a bunch of things that they won’t necessarily use on any given day. They carry things that they might need.
Go ahead, empty your pockets. I’ll wait. I guarantee at least half of what you carried around today you didn’t actually use...
