It’s that time of year again. This past week, we made a trip out to Las Vegas for the 2023 SHOT Show to check out the latest and greatest in the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor and Tactical industries. As you can imagine, there’s plenty of crossover into the everyday carry world.
It’s been a couple of years since I was last able to walk the show due to pandemic travel restrictions, and a lot has changed in the EDC gear space since then. At the show, I saw some familiar brands, noticed the absence of other big names, and discovered some up-and-coming companies to keep on your radar.
After scoping out as much of the massive trade show as I could (it seems to have doubled in size!), I narrowed down my favorite EDC products in this post. Read on to see my favorite EDC gear from SHOT Show 2023.
One of the best lists I have seen compiled. I am very familiar with most of these, the exception being the Eikonic . I have never heard of them, and I missed their booth. The article nails it with the Benchmade and CRKT selections. Both would be at or near the top of my list as well.
