Reader Essentials with Tyler

Tyler, Management/Dad, joins our conversation and shares his top 3 essential carry items.

Pack of Choice: BOgear BullPup custom

Recommendation 01: Patagonia Houdini raincoat

Why? This ultra lightweight and packable raincoat gets super small and comes along for any journey. It’s small size makes it perfect for EDC or a packed extra layer when the weather is unkind or quick to change. It’s saved me plenty of times when I fail to check the radar before leaving the house.

Recommendation 02: Handmade Paracord Spool

Why? Never leave home without some cordage… This hand sized wooden spool was cut and carved from a scrap of plywood and carries approx 30 feet of hi vis paracord.

Recommendation 03: Leatherman Skeletool CX

Why? I like this multi tool because it’s not too bulky while still having the main essentials. It’s got a better blade than most works equally well as a daily carry item.

Editor: I’m gonna go ahead and give Tyler extra points for including a Pack Config Patch! Nice one!
