About Carry Smarter



Martin Punter | Founder

Everyday Carry (EDC) is my lifestyle and passion. I was part of EDC before I even knew what it was. I became aware of EDC a few years ago. Up until that point, my obsessive passion was collecting pens, notebooks, gadgets and gear always refining what I carry, but I did not know there were others as mindful about it as well. My obsessive collecting and refining led to me quitting my job and the creation of Carry Smarter, as a personal blog to record my carry, curate quality content, and to share a personal interest of mine with new fans.

Most of my working life has been as a remote worker and I have always been very conscious of what things come with me and what gets left behind. Just like the clothes we wear, my gear serves as an additional outlet to express myself.

My choice is towards the minimal side of things. My EDC helps me stay prepared for when plans change and is built on the idea that everything worth carrying needs to be well-designed, durable, reliable, and lightweight. I like things in my life to be straightforward and practical, especially when it comes to what I carry on a daily basis. I'm always looking for the latest gadgets and tech to include into my EDC.

Besides EDC, my other love is Bushcraft, Survival and spending time outdoors with my family.
