I spent the past week out in Salt Lake City, Utah at the Outdoor Retailer Summer 2023 trade show for a chance to get some hands-on experience with the latest and greatest gear from your favorite outdoor brands.
And with summer officially underway, now is the perfect time to rethink your everyday carry setup. Warm weather, spending time outdoors, and summer break travel plans are all reasons to switch up your EDC.
