Every Day Carry Kit for the Aussie Miner

Every Day Carry Kit for the Aussie Miner

Life in the mines can be tough and unforgiving but with a bit of planning and smart everyday carry, you can make your life easier.

We all know that miners are already expected to take their gear wherever they go — like underwear, lunch box, water bottle, boots etc.

But what about those things that make life just a little bit more convenient?

Whether it’s for before or after-work activities (or both!), these items will help you out at home or on-site! Here are my picks for an essential EDC (Everyday Carry) kit…perfect for surviving the gruelling earth-moving schedule.
