CRKT Bivy

Let's face it, most multitools available right now take a bit of effort to actually open up and use. They're even harder to open when you only have one hand free. Enter the CRKT Bivy, a riggers multitool designed by renowned speedclimber Hans Florine. The Bivy sets itself apart from most multitools by giving you one-handed access to its functions. With just a push of a button, its spring-assisted pliers pop into action, ready for use. A flick of a thumbstud reveals a versatile sub-3" tanto blade with partial serrations. True to its roots as a climber's tool, the Bivy sports a marlinspike to make tying knots easy. It also features a flathead and Phillips screwdriver and a bottle opener to round out its EDC functionality. The Bivy packs all this into a compact, lightweight aluminum handle that's less than an inch wide. You can pick up this everyday carry essential at the link below.

Ruler Bracelet

Find yourself conflicted when it comes to wearing accessories that aren’t, in some way or another, functional? At least it’s a non-issue with the Ruler Bracelet, a collaborative project between Work Hard Anywhere and LA-based leather brand The Goods. Available in both 14-inch and 16-inch versions, the Ruler Bracelet is handmade of leather in the USA and features an imperial ruler on one side as well as a metric one on the other… (via GearHungry)

Leather Multi-Tool Sheath by American Bench Craft

We know your trusty full-size multitool isn’t always the easiest to carry. If it’s something you rely on daily, it’s best to keep it at the ready and easily accessible. This handcrafted leather sheath from American Bench Craft can help with that. Designed to fit a Leatherman Wave and similarly sized multitools, the sheath attaches to your belt and opens using brass snap hardware. Unlike the hook-and-loop flap closures you find on more common nylon sheaths, the all-metal hardware is less likely to wear out over time. Its single-piece, no-stitch riveted construction also offers strength and durability while keeping bulk to a minimum. American Bench Craft make the sheaths by hand in the USA, using full-grain, veg-tanned leather. Find this sleek carry option at American Bench Craft’s Etsy storefront at the link below.

Ventus Black Kite

Do you want a carbon fiber watch, but don’t want to spend a ton of cash to get one, well, the Ventus Black Kite on kickstarter may be just the ticket. I covered the brand previously with the Caspian models, which were very successful and well received, with the exception of some issues with the lume. With carbon fiber, you can layer the material or you can shred it, melt it and mold it. This latter technique was used for the Tempest Carbon One, but the Ventus Black Kite is using the layering style… (via WristWatchReview)

Grovemade Brass Minimalist Wallet

You might not realize it now, but sometime soon you're going to be going somewhere where your bulky everyday wallet is an inconvenience. The Grovemade Brass Minimalist Wallet is for those times. Constructed from solid brass and vegetable-tanned leather, the Grovemade wallet is solidly built while still maintaining a slim profile.

The compact case is just large enough to hold an ID, bank or credit card, and a small fold of cash, and slips easily into a pocket. The Brass' rounded corners and beveled edges also keep it slim, making it just as at home in a suit or tux as it would be in a pair of jeans. The classic look of this wallet also means it will never go out of style. If the architects who designed New York and Chicago in the 1950s had made wallets instead of skyscrapers, this is the kind of product they would have come up with: something durable, timeless, and eye catching.

Made in America, the Grovemade Brass Minimalist Wallet will fit the bill for days when you want to travel light and make an impression. Find it (and a more lightweight aluminum version in other colorways) at Grovemade’s shop.

DSPTCH Camera Bags

DSPTCH broke into the EDC scene in 2010 with their minimally utilitarian camera straps and paracord accessories. Since then, they've switched gears from photographer essentials to general EDC bags and lifestyle accessories. Now, they've finally dropped their first dedicated camera bags as a much-anticipated followup to their photo-focused beginnings.

The new collection offers two styles: the Camera Shoulder Bag with a versatile multi-mount strap system, and a more traditional high-capacity Camera Ruckpack. Each bag includes a padded camera insert for protecting and organizing your photo gear. Even when stowed away, pulling out your camera for a quick shot is easy thanks to a quick-access top zipper on the shoulder bag and a side-entry compartment on the ruckpack.

And while these are dedicated camera bags, that doesn't mean they're limited. You can remove the camera inserts for general EDC, and use it to carry your laptop and other gear. They're made with water-resistant ballistic nylon, available in low-profile black or black camo colorways. Check out the full collection of bags and accessories on DSPTCH's website.

Timex Metropolitan+ Activity Tracker Watch

Whether they realize it or not, everyone that wears a watch is an EDCer. Having something that can easily tell you the time has been an essential tool for centuries, and new technology allows our watches to do more than ever before. The Timex Metropolitan+ not only tells time, but also tracks your steps, distance, and calories burned. Activity information is available at a glance thanks to a fourth hand that shows how close you are to completing your goals. Unlike other trackers on the market, Timex used an analog design that doesn’t emphasize the fitness features of the watch. A 42mm brass casing rounds out the classic aesthetic, along with a replaceable leather watch band. The Metropolitan+ also features a backlight and water resistance for continuous use in less than ideal conditions. If you’re looking to keep track of your time as well as your fitness, check out the Metropolitan+ at the link below.
