All-New Aluminum Ridge Wallets

From flashlights to pocket knives to smartphones, aluminum has become the material of choice for the gear we carry. It's light, strong, comfortable, and affordable — all things you'd want in your EDC. And these days, you'll find aluminum on minimalist wallets like the Ridge to keep things slim, sturdy, and lightweight. One of the many other benefits of aluminum gear is just how many more colors it can come in to give your EDC its signature look. With the addition of OD green, desert tan, rose gold, and celeste blue to their lineup, Ridge offers even more wallet styles to make your carry stand out.

In case you aren't familiar with Ridge wallets, they're constructed from two aluminum plates bound by a durable elastic and stainless steel screws. The aluminum plates create structure, block RFID signals, make it easier to slide in and out of a pocket, and give your cards some heavy duty protection. Meanwhile, the elastic ensures a custom fit, minimizing bulk if you carry fewer cards while being able to expand to accommodate up to 12 cards without stretching out.

These new wallets leverage 6061-T6 aluminum to weigh in at just 2 ounces. The OD green, desert tan, and celeste blue colors feature a ceramic coating for a rich, matte finish. The rose gold version is hard anodized aluminum, resulting in a durable speckled finish for that extra bling appeal.

You can check out the new colors and configure them to best fit your EDC at the link below. Be sure to check out how our tips on how to choose the right cash-carrying configuation for your next Ridge wallet, as well as our color-coded carry round-up for ideas on gear to match.

Spyderco ClipiTool Standard

Most EDC multi-tools include a blade or two, but they often feel like an afterthought in use. The assumption is that you're going to use the other functions more than the knife. This just doesn't cut it if you rely on a full-size knife to get things done on a regular basis. Plus, having to carry a dedicated multi-tool along with a knife can clutter your carry and weigh down your pockets. But with the new Spyderco ClipiTool Standard folder tool, Spyderco pairs their renowned blade technology with the convenience and utility of having a multi-tool on hand.

Although the ClipiTool could be considered a multi-tool, the blade on it is no joke. It's a full-size 3.5” 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blade in a useful leaf shape with a razor sharp full-flat grind. A liner lock keeps this knife in place, giving you the confidence to tackle large tasks with it. It's a big knife that's ready for big tasks, but the other tools involved make the ClipiTool Standard shine. It features a bottle and can opener, two hollow-ground screwdrivers, and a wire stripper. All of these tools swing out easily with Spyderco's hallmark large thumbhole design. They also feature stops at 90 degrees so you can leverage the handle when manipulating screws. And it helps that the handle is covered in super-grippy G10 scaling for added control, even when wet.

With the ClipiTool Standard, you have both a multi-tool with a real blade and a knife that can do more than cut. It's a great way to consolidate your carry while having the essentials on hand when the situation demands. Check it out at the link below.

Venque Amsterdam Pack

Chances are the main tools that you consider to be a part of your EDC can all fit in your pocket, but for plenty of people that’s only the beginning. If you commute to class or to work everyday, your EDC can extend to notebooks, textbooks, a laptop, charging cables, etc. to name a few. That’s when having a good bag comes in handy. The new Amsterdam backpack by Venque wasn’t made for tactical use in the field or for two week treks through the mountains, it's specifically for the commuter who prioritizes organization, comfort, and a quality build.

The first thing you’ll notice is the sleek, minimal design that makes this pack stand out from the rest. It's covered in Venque's specially formulated, high-density Quanta fabric that, along with the leather trim and YKK zippers, not only looks good but will also keep your gear safe even in bad weather thanks to its water resistance and durability. If you’re going to carrying a backpack with you everyday, you also want it to be comfortable. That’s why the Amsterdam pack comes with ergonomic straps that contour to the natural shape of your body. There’s also a sturdy top handle for when you find yourself squeezing into packed subways or buses and need to carry it by hand.

The Amsterdam doesn’t offer much in terms of pockets, with only a small zippered one on the front to complement the main compartment. But that doesn’t mean that it’s lacking in organization. Instead, the bag has a removable organizer that fits a 15-inch laptop along with plenty of other smaller essentials like pens, pencils, and cables. It’ll keep your gear organized and accessible during the week. And once the weekend comes around, you can easily remove the organizer to make more space in the main compartment for whatever you need to get some R&R when you're not working.

If you’re in the market for a new everyday pack or just want something that’s a little more versatile than the one you’re currently rocking make sure to check out the Amsterdam pack by Venque. It comes in either gray or black with the option of black or brown leather trim, so whatever your style is you’re sure to find the perfect match.
