As a minimalist, motorcyclist and pilot, I needed to build an EDC that balanced portability and utility. With this EDC I have the tools to perform most repairs and regular maintenance on my Ducati, work around the house and complete emergency repairs on my plane. I have enough power to keep my phone, watch, flashlight and iPad going for nearly a week. All while maintaining an incredibly small and lightweight footprint.
