A. The LA Police Gear Atlas Flannel features breakaway snaps to provide instant access to your pocket(s) or waistband. The fabric weight and pattern help minimize printing. Two chest pockets feature a pen pass-through along the top seam. A hidden zipper in the right pocket offers a handy location for small items, and hook-and-loop closures along the top of each pocket conceal secondary pockets. Multiple colors are available. MSRP: $24.99; lapolicegear.com 


B. A smaller, more compact size and narrow profile make the Buck Budgie Knife an ideal addition to your EDC complement. A large thumb hole allows hassle-free, ambidextrous, one-handed opening, while its 2-inch, S35VN steel, drop-point blade ensures long-term edge retention during extended use. A contoured and textured G10 scale spans the left side of the handle, while a stainless pocket clip and a lanyard loop allow for multiple carry options. MSRP: $85; buckknives.com


C. Constructed from Biothane Super-Flex webbing, Henry Holsters’ Flint Compact IWB/AIWB Holster features a fold-over style that combines a minimalist design with practical features. A concealment kick along the rear of the holster tips the gun’s muzzle outward while rotating the grip in toward your hip, enhancing concealment. Adjustable for cant and ride height, the Flint Compact is available for select Glock and SIG Sauer pistols. MSRP: $75 to $95; henryholsters.com


D. Constructed of a high-density, closed-cell foam, the Blackhawk Tecgrip Magazine Holster holds tight against most fabrics, eliminating the need for traditional belt clips. Its outer layer is designed to hold the pouch securely against any material, keeping your spare magazine securely anchored in place, whether in a pocket or tucked in a waistband. It is available for single-stack magazines. MSRP: $18.95; blackhawk.com


E. Designed to treat life-threatening injuries in a small, compact, easily identifiable/transportable package, the Dark Angel Medical Every Day Carry (EDC) Trauma Kit ships with one CAT Gen 7 or SOFFT-W tourniquet, one package of hemostatic gauze, one pair of Nitrile gloves, one mini compression bandage and one pair of Hyfin Vent compact chest seals. MSRP: $138.98; darkangelmedical.com
