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!
