Unusual But Interesting EDC Items Worth Carrying On Your Person
What would an outfit without any pockets look like? Well, it would probably just look like a pocketless outfit. Clothing devoid of pockets actually isn’t all too uncommon with free-flowing dresses, tights, skirts, gym shorts, and the like. To carry anything on your person, of course, you’d have to bring along a backpack or a purse with you, which can be a minor inconvenience when you don’t want to carry anything other than what’s already on your body.
The World’s Most Comfortable Belt Can Support Anything You Carry
What we’re trying to say is that, in light of Thanksgiving recently passing, we’re just thankful for pockets and pants designed with EDC capabilities in mind. While some people are EDC minimalists and tend to simply carry their smartphone/wallet combo and keys on them, others utilize their pockets like a mobile locker.
Depending on what the demands of your day are and what you’re doing, what you carry in your pockets will likely vary. From zero weight on your thighs to stuffed pockets, know that by shopping our belts online, you’re getting a strong belt that’s designed to hold up even the most loaded-down pair of pants or shorts. Heck, our signature COBRA® belt buckles are designed to bear of a load of about 4,000 lbs. At Klik Belts, we’re pretty serious about what we make.
Of course, if you have a concealed carry permit or spend time out on open land with your handgun, there’s no better belt for holsters than a Klik Belt.
Looking for some EDC inspiration? Whether you’re just looking to shake things up in your daily item routine or you can finally afford some more weight in your pockets thanks to the strength of your new Klik Belt, read below for some practical yet niche items.

How many times have you eaten out somewhere, enthusiastically enjoyed your meal, and forgot to grab a toothpick on the way out? Now, you’re with your date or headed back to work with a piece of food lodge right in between your two front teeth. That just looks bad, right?
A small container of floss is exactly that: small, lightweight, and easy to access. It’s also very useful beyond getting plaque out of your teeth, as you can replace your shoelace, create a makeshift piece of rope, utilize an impromptu fishing line, or even sew something up with it. Better yet, you’re doing so with something that smells minty fresh.
A Keychain Tape Measure
“About how long is that?” you’ve probably asked yourself before. If you tend to work in a field where measuring various items is commonplace, it only makes sense to carry even just a small tape measure on you. Sure, your smartphone probably has a built-in measuring app on it, but is it really as easy and convenient to use as an actual measuring tape? We’d say “no.”
A Few Bandaids
It’s true that carrying a full-on first aid kit wherever you go is pretty overkill, but it’s not too inconvenient to slip a couple of bandaids into your wallet. You can never predict when you’re going to get a cut, let alone when someone around you may start randomly bleeding. You’ll thank yourself for carrying a few small bandages on your person when the time actually comes to use them.
A Harmonica Or Another “Pocket Instrument”
We get it — this isn’t the 1880s, and you don’t have to walk on down to the street corner and play your harmonica in a mysterious yet intentional fashion just to pass the time. After all, we have smartphones in our pockets to keep us entertained during all hours of the day, right?
That’s true, but smartphones die. A harmonica, unless it’s chalked to the brim with dust and dirt, will never die. Harmonicas are also fairly easy and learn and play, and don’t require any extent or set up. They’re pocket-sized and ready to go. Just like…
A Set Of Playing Cards
This may be a little bit heavier than your average EDC item, but it’s certainly worth carrying if you need to kill time in an area where accessing the internet is not an option. In fact, in that situation, you’ll probably be the most popular kid on the block by possessing a deck of playing cards.
Like we said, playing cards are indeed pocket-sized (unless you have really small or tight pockets) and they’re always ready to go — all you need to do is give them a little shuffle! There’s something to be said about items that don’t need to be charged and won’t break thanks to a lack of electrical components.
Something To Fidget Around With
Any of these above items would make great objects to nervously move around in your hands as you try to navigate the social fabric of life, but if you’re a serious fidgeter, it only makes sense to have an EDC item dedicated for that specific purpose. However, know that you’re not limited to the classic Fidget Spinner.
Even a small stress ball, keys on a ring, or a yo-yo (style points!) make great everyday items to fidget around with if you’re feeling nervous or anxious.
