My 2022 EDC Travel Essentials Kit

15 1 year ago

This travel EDC pack contains essentials to help get you out of trouble when travelling. Compact and lightweight this pack should be part of your travel everyday carry. Don't leave town without it!

My name is Jonathan, I have a passion for all things 'gadget, travel and EDC' which has filled both my personal and work life for many years. This includes sourcing, reviewing and product development and the creation of two UK national retail chains. Find out more here: https://youtu.be/vYCOQ5CpkXY

This channel is here to help you find great travel and carry gear on the back of solid and detailed reviews along with years of experience. I also hope to give you ideas and inspiration when it comes to everyday carry gear, travel gear and gadgets, which make life a little bit easier and perhaps more fun.

I welcome any feedback on my videos or the channel in general. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Product Sourcing:

When it comes to sourcing a product for review, I will usually either聽 purchase and item personally or reach out to a supplier requesting a sample for review.聽 Most suppliers, after seeing the channel, are supportive if they are confident in their product, appreciating the value of greater exposure.

I am sometimes asked to review a product by a supplier which I will only agree to if the product fits the channel and I believe will be of interest to you, my audience.聽 Also the product needs to be worthy of a review.聽 It is not in my interest to review inferior or poor quality products and therefore as you might expect many requests are politely declined.

Any sponsored videos (paid for reviews) are clearly stated as such so there can be no misunderstanding.聽 Even with sponsored reviews I will only agree to a sponsorship on products and services which I believe will be of genuine interest to viewers.

Sometimes a supplier will provide a link to the product or the supplier which I am happy to include in the description.聽 Sometimes I will be provided with an affiliate link so I can earn a commission on sales and this helps to support channel costs but never at the expense of an honest review.

If a product I have reviewed is available from Amazon I will often include an Amazon link in the description.聽 As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. If you purchase a product or service with the links that I provide I may receive a small commission. There is no additional charge to you.


I really appreciate the feedback in the comments - I find it a source of knowledge and inspiration - so thank you to all of you who take the time to contribute. I have recently found that if I continue to respond to all the comments as the number of videos builds, it takes time away from being able to produce new content which would be very counter productive! - so my aim is to read everything I can and reply when I can, after each video goes live, until the next video goes live a week later. I'll see how that works out 馃槉

Thank you for supporting the channel so I can continue to provide you with regular reviews, thoughts and ideas and (hopefully) inspiration! Please consider subscribing to keep up to date with new video releases.
