Hitch & Tinder EDC Card Caddy

Managing to get most of your EDC in one spot can be a gamechanger for two reasons. First, it's just way easier to carry. Secondly, you're less likely to leave anything behind—which can be increasingly likely and frustrating if you carry more than the average EDCer. But even if you carry a wallet, knife, and pen everyday, you might find they're not the most comfortable to carry loose in your pocket.

The EDC Card Caddy from Hitch and Tinder consolidates your gear into a single package that's both secure and pocket-friendly. There’s just enough room in its four-pocket design for your essentials without adding too much bulk. It holds 1-5 cards, twice-folded cash, a small pocket knife (like a Victorinox Cadet or Buck 55), and your favorite pocket pen. Each caddy is made by hand in the USA with leather from one of the last remaining tanneries in the country.

Hitch and Tinder's EDC Card Caddy is available in six different leathers, check them all out at the link below.

KCT Kydex MOLLE-Link Holster

Tyler Kee writes: "I’m a big Kydex holster fan. Yes, I’ve used some great leather holsters and I’ll concede that for EDC, leather is the most comfortable. But for range days, hiking around, and general “beat it up” duty, Kydex is king. In my preparation for Run n Gun this year, and my a great stroke of luck at a competition prize table, I picked up a TYR Tactical Sniper Harness. It uses MOLLEwebbing as the attachment platform along the belt. Fine for things like mag pouches and various other items, but I’ve never found a MOLLE compatible holster that I liked until now…" (via TheTruthAboutGuns)

HALO Carabiner

Ti2 — the masterful metalworkers out of Hawaii — have shown that there's utility to be squeezed out of something as simple as a metal hook. Their latest product is the HALO, a collaboration between Ti2's Mike Bond and knifemaker Jesper Voxnaes. On the surface, it's a collection of colorful carabiners, but a closer look reveals a capable tool worthy of your carry.

The HALO series doesn't use cheap, flimsy metals. The carabiners are made from grade 5 titanium for fantastic strength-to-weight ratio, Tellerium copper for that timeless patina, high-strength 614 alloy bronze, and the rare zirconium with its unique and desirable finish. These materials let the HALO become a prized addition to even the most exotic EDCs.

Its titanium gate comes anodized to match its body's material, and can be ambidextrously opened for ease of attachment. The HALO's full-sized outer frame comes with generous jimping for an improved grip. This is especially helpful when using its bottom pry edge, which comes hollow-milled for strength in cutting, chiseling, and similar tasks. It also has two keychain attachment points to accommodate all your carry configurations.

A carabiner is just a carabiner, right? Wrong, as the HALO shows — it can also be the most useful and stylish thing to hook onto your belt loop. Pick one up in your choice of material at the Kickstarter link below.
