The North Face Kaban Laptop Backpack

Sometimes getting through your morning commute can feel like a mountain to climb. If there's one thing to make it easier, it's a great backpack to keep your essentials ready and organized. With tons of outdoor gear expertise, it's no surprise The North Face knows how to make a bag for all your urban adventures, too. The Kaban backpack has the right features, materials, and organization for urban EDC whether you're biking to work, hustling between classes, or just exploring the city.

One of the most important qualities of an EDC bag is ease of access when you're on the go. The 26L Kaban makes getting to your gear quick with a U-shaped, top-loading design. The front compartment opens to reveal a contrasting interior with mesh stash pockets near the top of the bag, perfect for cables and chargers. On the back of the outermost panel is a zippered mesh pocket for added storage. A typical admin panel stores pens, your phone, and other small items. A soft fleece lining makes this the perfect place to store your tablet or other delicate tech, too.

While the front compartment is a top loader, the 3/4 zip allows you to unzip it enough to access it from the side, making gear at the bottom of the compartment easier to reach. Another small pocket accessible from the other side is perfect for your frequently used gear, as you can draw the bag under your arm and reach in from the top without having to take the bag off.

You're free to load the spacious main compartment as you see fit, as it doesn't have any internal pockets in the way. It's perfect for books, a change of clothes, packing cubes, and so on. And if you don't need to load the main compartment, keeping it empty leaves the bag nice and slim for a low profile carry. Behind the main section is a dedicated laptop compartment that accommodates up to 15” laptops, complete with a pull tab to make retrieving your computer easier.

Thoughtful details round out the bag, like its side water bottle pockets, water resistant exterior fabric, and ventilated back panel designed for comfort, sweat wicking and optimal airflow. Lastly, an adjustable sternum strap and adjustable shoulder straps let you dial in the fit for a secure, high-riding pack that carries comfortably when cycling or under load. You can pick one up in your choice of muted, street-ready colors or opt for outdoor-inspired high-vis options at the link below.

Dango Covert Cases

Modern phones are expensive investments, particularly the latest and greatest flagship models. And thanks to their ability to do most everything for both work and play, they're also likely to be the most carried and used item in your EDC. So it's a good idea to find a case that not only protects your phone, but also helps improve the way you use it as well. Dango's Covert cases offer a balance of strength and performance for your latest iPhone, giving it lean but substantial protection while also giving you a few new ways to carry and protect it, too.

The Covert case comes in a wraparound design to protect every corner of your phone, including a “lip” that gives the phone's face some protective height when placed face down. The TPU material it uses is light and flexible, while at the same time resists oil and abrasions to keep its exterior looking clean and sleek even with extended use. The Covert's key feature is a set of lanyard loop holes built into the case's sides. These work in tandem with an included paracord lanyard on cases for the iPhone 6, 7, and 8 (or paracord sling included with the Covert Case for iPhone X) with a metal clasp and ring for the attachment points, giving you alternative ways to carry your phone, or, in worst-case scenarios, prevent you from dropping it.

Whether as extra security when using your phone, a means to carry it around your neck, or even a place to attach some personal trinkets or accessories, the Dango Covert is designed to accommodate your needs. Pick one up in your choice of color and phone model from the link below while they're on sale for a limited time.

Ontario Carter 2quared

A big job calls for a big knife. And with so many EDC knives on the smaller side, sometimes they just don't cut it. When you're looking for a bigger knife, there's more to consider than just the length of the blade. A comfortable and easy to control handle and solid construction all around are key factors, just to name a few. The new Carter 2quared from Ontario Knife Company delivers that and more. It's a robust folding EDC knife designed to help you tackle the big tasks with ease.

With one look at this knife, you can tell that it's made for hard use. This collaboration design from Robert Carter looks beefy, even overbuilt. With its titanium handle and secure frame lock, it's ready for what you can throw at it. At 4.83" long, the handle will fit your whole hand, and its ergonomic design gives you superior control. The handle also features a large finger choil in the grip, which helps guard you from cutting yourself on your own knife during hard use. 

With that, you can leverage its 3.5" hollow ground D2 sheepsfoot blade for general utility tasks and its defined tip for poking and piercing. Unlike most sheepsfoot blades, the one on the Carter 2quared has a bit of a curved belly which helps with slicing tasks. Its top swedge also helps you maneuver it through tough material with ease. With its low-index flipper tab at the spine, deployment of that blade is as easy as a flick of your finger. And when your job is done, its low profile clip lets you store it tip-up in your pockets.

With the OKC Carter 2quared in hand, you can have the confidence to take on your larger daily tasks with ease. Pick it up at the link below, and get to work.
