Massdrop x Intern Weatherproof Modular Carry Pouches

When it comes to EDC, a “heavy duty” bag doesn't necessarily have to weigh a ton. When you combine the right materials, hardware, and design, you can get a lot of the same performance you'd expect from a much heavier bag. But the real challenge is execution: it's a complex and expensive manufacturing process to achieve a high performance, ultralight bag. If there's anyone who's up to the challenge, it's the Vancouver-based, up-and-coming technical apparel designer who goes by the Techwear Intern. He's proven his design chops by creating a new piece of gear—ranging from innovative bags to first-of-its-kind jackets—every day for 30 days straight. By partnering with Massdrop, he's combining his technical knowhow with high-performance materials to bring you a modular carry pouch system at a price that's hard to beat.

This first release comes as an entire set of pouches collectively dubbed the Modular Adaptive Carry System (MACS). The biggest benefit of a modular system like this is how you can get your setup totally dialed for your exact needs, even as they change. The MACS comes in two types of pouches: the larger Carry Packits and smaller Center-Zip Pockets. The Packits are essentially single-cavity zippered stuff sacks (available in sizes from small to X-Large) ideal for larger, bulkier items. The accompanying Zip Pockets more closely resemble a pencil pouch, useful for quick access or consolidating small, loose essentials. They can be mounted together as a more complete bag option, separated for bag-in-bag packing, or used alone, thanks to the myriad of attachment options available: velcro, MOLLE, G-Hooks, C-Hooks, and integrated carry handles. This sort of versatility is especially valuable when you need to pack differently for various settings: urban EDC, outdoor, travel, school/work, and more.

No matter what you're doing, the MACS features materials that are durable enough and light enough to go anywhere. They feature a fully waterproof and impressively lightweight X-Pac laminated ripstop fabric that's made in the USA for durability and all-round protection. The zippers are also made in the USA and boast extreme water resistance to further keep your gear dry. Even the buckles and hardware use a proprietary thermoplastic polymer that retains strength and stability when exposed to various conditions. By opting for all these lightweight materials, bulk and fatigue under load are non-issues. It's especially crucial for a modular setup that can end up being fairly expansive.

Whether you're looking for a messenger bag, a gear organizer, an ultralight travel belt, or anything in between, Massdrop and the Intern probably have a combination for you in this first drop. The best part is it won't set you back too much either, thanks to Massdrop's production help. Check it out in full detail at the link below and secure your MACS setup before the drop ends July 12th, with options starting at under $20.

Nitecore NTP20 Tactical Pen

When you want to carry a truly tactical pen, it should be one that excels at both writing and self-defense tasks. But too often, what we get focuses on one task over the other. You might find something closer to a kubotan that can sort of scribble something down, or decent jotters that are tactical in aesthetics only. Nitecore's new NTP20 tactical pen aims to strike the perfect balance. Their updated pen design gives you a versatile writing tool that fits your everyday needs while giving you the edge you need to defend yourself or get out of an emergency situation.

As a pen, the NTP20 is quite versatile. It's compatible with eight different ink refills, from Parker to Schneider as well as Apex and Senator cartridges. This gives you a wide range of inks and ink styles to choose from, letting you set up the NTP20 to write the way you want it. The body of the pen is made out of a premium titanium alloy which also helps keep the pen light in hand and in pocket weighing only 1.33 ounces. And at six inches long, it's not too big to carry around.  It even has a streamlined clip at the top to aid in pocket carry, with a ceramic ball underneath that makes for a smooth draw that doesn't catch upon your clothing.

The lightness of the pen makes it easy to write with as well, and the grip areas channeled into the body also help you keep your hands on it. Those same grip surfaces help the NTP20 perform its tactical functions. The shape of the pen and its added length give added leverage during defensive use, while its ultra-hard tungsten tip can break glass in an emergency situation.

The attractive styling of the Nitecore NTP20 draws less attention to its tactical applications when you're writing with it or carrying it, making it easier to EDC as well. Grab one for your loadout at the link below.

Prometheus Preon P1 MkIII Flashlight

When you put together manufacturing prowess, over a decade of experience in pioneering flashlights, and the latest in flashlight tech, you're bound to get something special. And it's hard to describe the Preon P1 MkIII as anything but, with all the history behind it. Born out of the partnership of Prometheus Lights and Foursevens, the Preon represents a quality tool that only makers of their caliber can produce. Needless to say, it's one of the most refined AAA lights you can buy today.

The Preon P1 MkIII's exterior is a subtle fusion of both companies' design languages. On first glance you see the familiar Foursevens Preon, with its machined ridges and tapered middle barrel to accommodate your preferred grip method. Then there's the Prometheus screw-in titanium clip: a clip so good it sells on its own for other flashlights. Finally there's the materials the Preon comes in: Electroless Nickel plating and CR3 (Tri-Chrome) + PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating over 6061-T6 aluminum, both technical solutions Prometheus have used to give their lights a unique total coating that doesn't mess with the light's rear click switch operation.

In spite of its looks, the Preon P1 MkIII isn't meant to be just pocket candy. It comes with the latest and greatest Nichia 219C LED, rated at 92+ CRI (Color Rendering Index) for the closest approximation to natural light you can currently get. It also allows for a higher current than its 219B predecessor, meaning it can more efficiently produce and hold its 100-lumen output. The Preon also comes with a programmable user interface, letting you pick from 6 configurations that make use of its 7 modes. An included NiMH AAA battery also gives the light a stable and rechargeable power source so you aren't wasting disposable batteries on your light (or harming it in the worst case).

While the Preon P1 MkIII marks the first steps of Prometheus and Foursevens, it's clear that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and shows the clear influence and experience of both its creators.
