EDC Items

  Awhile back we were in the ski shop marvelling at how much money you could spend on Carbon Fibre products alone. On the wall the boot heaters caught my eye as my spouse has problems with cold feet. The $500.00 ones with a remote control caught my eye first, then the more 'reasonably priced' $300.00 ones. Then what caught my eye was the stupidity of the proprietary battery packs, so inefficient compared to 3400mAh Panasonic NRC18650B batteries for example. The thought occured to me that it shouldn't be too hard to make your own for a fraction of the cost, thus the birth of the EDC section.

This section covers the remaining items that you may need in the field that are not necessarily covered in the other sections. As we come across items that seem worth noting, it also seemed to make sense to SKU them up and share them. Many of them are listed here. Use the links on the left to view the items of interest.

This is not meant to cover easily available items you can get at MEC, rather they are unique and hard to find items that we have tested and thought may be worthy supplements to your existing kit. They are at least worthy of your consideration and may embrace some concepts you have not considered before, so have a look.
