Dango Covert X iPhone Cases

Modern phones are expensive investments, particularly the latest and greatest flagship models. And this is more true than ever with Apple's newest phones. They're more powerful than ever, able to do most everything for both work and play, so 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 X cases offer a balance of strength and performance for the latest iPhone XS, giving them lean but substantial protection while also giving you a few new ways to carry and protect them, too.

The Covert X 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 oil- and abrasion-resistant to keep its exterior looking clean and sleek even after 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 tether 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.

Kershaw Concierge

There's nothing wrong with having statement pieces in your EDC, but there's a good chance you wouldn't want it to be your knife. With that said, you can still carry a discreet knife with eye-catching details from every angle. Kershaw teamed up with knife designer Dmitry Sinkevich to put his sleek, minimalist spin on the new Concierge. It has practical EDC features with modern gent's knife styling and subtle design cues you'll appreciate when you take a closer look.

Immediately upon handling the knife, you’ll notice the unique look and feel of its machined G10 handles. It offers the same light weight and grip you expect from a modern material like G10, but it also sports a woodgrain-like pattern you'd find on traditional knives. Since the Concierge features a secure liner lock mechanism, it allows for both sides of the handle to make the most of the machined G10 material. Instead of simply bolting a pocket knife to one side, Sinkevich-designed a unique inlaid pocket clip. This feature is easy to appreciate especially when using the knife. Since the clip is nearly flush with the scales, the clip stays completely out of the way allowing for a firm and comfortable grip. To add some extra grip, there’s a beefy jimped back spacer too.

The blade itself measures in at a reasonable 3.25” and features a sleek gray carbo-nitride coating on top of the 8Cr13MoV base steel. It deploys via a flipper mechanism that uses Kershaw’s KVT ball bearing system. A light press on the flipper lever, and the blade effortlessly opens with a single hand. Instead of an exposed screw, there’s a custom cap on the pivot that adds to the overall sleek appearance of the knife. The blade is a modified drop point with a gentle swedge on the top. The shape is quite versatile, ideal for slicing, cutting, and piercing tasks.

If you’re looking for a new EDC blade that’s easy to use, quick to deploy, and comfortable to carry, the Concierge is an excellent option. At just under 60 bucks, we believe it’s a tremendous value as well. You can add one to your collection at the link below!

Vertx EDC Gamut 18

It's hard to argue the pure performance of a tactical pack when it comes to EDC with quick access, organization, and modularity at the forefront of its design. But if “tactical” doesn't suit your style, this new pack from Vertx offers that same functionality in a more discreet style you can take downtown or up the trail. It ditches the all-black look, concealing its MOLLE and hook-and-loop platforms with design cues you'd find on “heritage” hiking packs.

The 18-liter EDC Gamut was already a go-to tactical pack for its expansive EDC-focused feature set. This new colorway draws less unwanted attention with its neutral tones and leather touchpoints, but it's still every bit as functional. For starters, the front panel stows away into the bottom of the bag, revealing a full panel of MOLLE webbing for adding pouches and other gear. You can also attach gear to the webbing and keep it concealed with the front panel up for a cleaner look while still having your gear ready. Above the front panel is a zippered, top-entry stash pocket for frequently used gear. It has an integrated keyleash for clipping your keychain, too.


The main compartment opens by way of a U-shaped zipper to lay flat, allowing for easy loading and identification of your gear no matter where it is in the pack. There's a dedicated sleeve for laptops and tablets up to 15”, 3 zippered mesh pockets for keeping your gear consolidated and visible, and more hook-and-loop lining the interior for additional modularity. At the top of the compartment you'll find an admin panel that can fold out without fully unzipping the bag, making it easier to access on the go. The rear panel unzips to reveal a fully lined hook-and-loop platform for carrying self-defense gear, keeping its tactical functionality intact.

Last but not least, two butterfly-opening zippered side pockets give you additional storage on the exterior of the pack. Each pocket opens to reveal an inner sleeve or admin panel on the body of the bag, with a zippered mesh pocket on the “wing” when opened. Other handy features like a cord-equipped water bottle pocket, a pass-through back panel for loading onto luggage, and quick-release shoulder straps round out the pack.
