    NICE video. The speaker is organized and prepared, perhaps even rehearsed, and ready to go right out of the chute. The presentation is direct and to the point. I judged high school and college forensics (competitive public speaking) in a former life, and award high marks to KM4ACK for knowing how to prepare and present his case. Kudos, OM. - K8JHR -

    I watched approximately the first 1/3 of the video and there was no mention of what "EDC" means. A quick Internet search answered my question: every day carry. Guess it's a prepper/whacker thing, judging by the websites that showed up in the search.

    If you had searched the Internet about 10 seconds more you'd find the EDC community is often made up of active and retired Military, Police, Fire Fighters and EMTs. Prepper/whacker?

    I have a radio in the car. I keep it set to the classic rock station.

    Welcome to America, where the biggest threat to Americans is ... other Americans.

    Welcome to humanity. Been that way since the beginning. Sadly, there's always a need to level the playing field.

    Sure glad I wasn't born anywhere else. Like Syria, Iran, N.Korea, Sudan, Congo, anywhere that ends in "stan", ad nauseum.

    My "go bag" is my wife. She is "2m" from the rear. Her mouth is 70cm.

    I like the bag... but being a photographer I've always found my handheld ham gear better protected by photo bags which protect my sensitive cameras. Plus I like individual padded compartments and the ability to customize the bag to my equipment.

    As far as the contents, some good ideas in the video. But it comes down to what you use every day or what your served agency needs.

    Dry as a popcorn fart if you ask me.
