Best Damn EDC is creating the best everyday carry videos and community on the planet
63

patrons

My name is Taylor Martin. I've been making YouTube videos professionally for over six years on channels like Pocketnow and CNET. I've also spent the last four and a half years working on my own channel, MOD.

Back in June, by popular demand, I created a new channel to focus my efforts on the everyday carry community. The EDC Weekly was a popular series on the MOD channel, but I felt it deserved to thrive as its own entity.

Enter the Best Damn EDC.

The initial response to the new channel has been incredible. It's off to an amazing start and I have no one to thank but you. I also know the future of this channel is going to be even better.

It's now time to start taking things seriously. In October, I decided to take a leap and make the Best Damn EDC my full-time job. While things are off to a great start, I need your help to make that happen. By becoming a Patreon supporter, you will:
  • Help fund product acquisition for future EDC videos
  • Fund new video ideas that are not currently possible (which include travel and collaborations with other YouTube creators)
  • Keep the lights on

Some stretch goals for Patreon support:
  • Upgrade equipment to help make production faster and easier
  • Hire an employee to help shoot and edit videos
  • Purchase or rent a studio to move production into a more suitable environment

Currently, Best Damn EDC is a project headed by just one guy (me), but the everyday carry community at large is huge and I have plans to take it to great, new heights by bridging the gap between some of the best makers and community members out there.
With the Best Damn EDC, my goal is to continue featuring some of the best EDCs from the community with the EDC Weekly as well as scouring the furthest corners of the internet to find the best everyday carry gear available (and upcoming). 

For this to be sustainable and continue growing, it's going to require the support of fellow gearheads like you. Every contribution from a new subscriber, like, share, or a pledge here on Patreon helps bring this dream closer to a reality.
