Guide to Customize Your Everyday Carry

Before we head out the door everyday, our mind runs through a checklist. 

Did I feed the dog, and where are my keys? 

Our hands scramble for the daily tools we use to make the grind straightforward and we get the day going.

As we travel from one task to the next, between work, school and passion projects, we reach out to grab our keychain, wallets, knives, or check the time on our wrist. These items are referred to as your everyday carry -- simply because you carry them everyday.

What is EDC gear?

“Everyday carry” refers to the accumulation of belongings you keep with you on a daily basis. EDC gear is meant to be efficient, durable and timeless inevitably making daily inconveniences easier. 

Before working at Trayvax I was guilty of carrying around a hefty wallet and an excess of things I did not need. As I embraced the minimalist lifestyle, using my new trayvax contour, I found places for cash and cards that I would just shoved in my front pocket in the past. Which led me to fine-tuning my everyday carry. 

Everyone has an everyday carry, whether they are spending time researching the best minimalist products available or have been carrying around that bulky wallet for years. 

What things do you always carry with you?


Becoming a Minimalist: Guide to a Customized EDC 

  1. Put everything you carry on a daily basis in front of you
  2. Meticulously go through each key ring, wallet stash pocket and multi tool
  3. Place each item in-order based on functionality and usefulness
  4. Create space by tossing anything that is not a “must have”.A customized every day carry is based on lifestyle, functionality & personality 
  5. Choose EDC gear that is unique to you -- minimalist, stylish and efficient 

Be proud of the gear you carry daily.

Everyone at Trayvax nerds out when it comes to our everyday carry. The company“water cooler talk” circles around the topic of favorite ways we use our trayvax gear. I have realized everyone has different uses, likes and dislikes on all the products we carry.

We launched the first Trayvax wallet in 2014 thanks to the support of our Kickstarter donors. Since then, our catalog has expanded considerably. This provides more options to suit your specific needs. It also makes choosing the right wallet a little trickier. We design every product to be of the highest possible quality, but different models excel in different areas. We love them all, and everyone has their favorite, but if you’re looking at minimalist wallets for the first time, the number of choices can be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve decided to bring our wallets together for some friendly competition. We’ve created rankings in five categories: card capacity, cash capacity, RFID protection, materials, and extras.
