Everyman Hideout Pack

When a piece of gear promises an endless list of features, there's a fine line between truly functional and downright gimmicky. Even as relative newcomers to the EDC scene, Everyman has proven they know how to combine everyday utility and timeless design with successful Kickstarter projects like the Grafton Pen and Porter Key Knife. Their newest project, the Hideout Pack, tackles your commute, travels, and everyday adventures with a vintage-inspired design that simply gets it right.

To be tough enough as your one bag for all your hauls, the Hideout Pack doesn't skimp on the materials. It sports heavyweight 1680D ballistic nylon for durability with a polyurethane coating for added weather resistance. A tarpaulin bottom lays the foundation for peace of mind when knocking the bag around even on rough or dirty surfaces. Oversized YKK 8.0 zippers are a great choice for the bag, letting its 3-way zipper system glide open with little effort.

Unzipping the center of the pack reveals the main compartment with laminated mesh dump pockets on either side. This clever combination of pocket placement, antimicrobial materials, and zippered storage makes them versatile enough to use for quick access, organizing smaller gear, or even keeping a change of clothes separated from the rest of your essentials. Beyond those pockets you'll find even more organization for your carry in an integrated admin panel.

Your laptop and tablet can hide out in the back of the pack, nestled safely in a felted wool sleeve that even opens flat to make getting through airport security a breeze. Ample storage for the rest of your gear rounds out the pack: a zippered dump pocket in the top lid for quick access, a fleece-lined zippered pocket for shades and screens under that, a security pocket for your passport, wallet, or other valuables hidden in the back plate, and two different keychain attachment clips for more carry options.

The project also includes a dopp kit to complete your travel setup. Check them both out at Everyman's fully funded Kickstarter project below.

Mystery Ranch Urban Assault Pack

Most commuter backpacks are built just tough enough to stand up to your average daily grind. But the Mystery Ranch Urban Assault Pack takes that tolerance for wear and tear a huge leap further. They've imparted the same focus on ergonomics and durability that go into their line of American-made tactical packs used by the military and police alike into a street-ready daypack for civilian EDC.

The build and design of the Urban Assault Pack go hand in hand, making it a tough bag that will protect your essentials while giving you easy access to them. It takes its design cues from military assault packs and minimally designed commuter backpacks, resulting in a sleek and practical bag that won’t look out of place in the office or on a hike.

Thanks to the convenient 3-ZIP design you can either lie the bag flat or reach in from the top to retrieve your gear, depending on what you’re carrying. In the main compartment you’ll get a 15” laptop sleeve as well as three zippered pockets for smaller accessories like charging cables or pens, while the top of the bag has a single zippered stuff pocket with a secure clip for your keys. Last but not least, its use of tough yet supple 500D Cordura nylon throughout offers some added protection when the weather turns.

As far as commuter bags go the Urban Assault pack checks all the boxes. It’s lightweight, durable, and combines military functionality with modern design. If you want a better way to carry your gear click the link below to snatch one of these.

Urban EDC Supply Organizer Hybrid

Whether you’re just starting out or you've been carrying for years, one thing still holds true: organizing your gear can be a challenge. There’s only so much you can carry in your pockets, and even with an EDC bag, you'll still have to dig through it for that one tool. When it comes to organization, a gear caddy is a good option. But what if your EDC is constantly changing? Urban EDC Supply has the answer with their latest caddy, the Organizer Hybrid. Its versatile pocket layout keeps your gear consolidated, whether it's your travel essentials, pen and paper, everyday tools, cards and cash, and more.

The new Urban Organizer Hybrid is the third the line of Urban Organizers and combines the functionality of the original with the minimalist design of the Mini wallet to give you the best of both worlds. On the front are two slots so you can put your EDC knife in one and your favorite pen in the other. Or swap one of them out for a flashlight, or even just carry a pen and a few credit cards. The choice is yours.

The slot on the back is perfect for an EDC pocket notebook, but it can also hold your passport when traveling just as easily. You also don’t have to worry about whether or not it can survive the daily grind thanks to its Horween leather construction, waxed edges, and saddle-stitching done by hand.

The Organizer Hybrid should age nicely with your gear, becoming as much a part of your EDC as the tools it carries. If you’ve been looking for a way to stay organized (or just like quality gear), the Organizer Hybrid is a great way to go. You can pre-order an Organizer Hybrid in your favorite leather at the link below..

Maxpedition Veldspar

If you've been holding out on EDCing a tactical bag because of the way they look, we understand. Not everyone wants to stand out in a crowd. Camouflage and webbing might be useful in the field, but it can put a target on your back in an urban environment. Maxpedition's Veldspar shoulder bag brings the brand's signature tactical functionality to a lower profile design, perfect for EDC in the city.

It's slim, streamlined, and far from how you'd picture a standard tactical bag to look. Even if it doesn't have MOLLE everywhere, it'll still perform with the best of them. Instead, a laser-cut attachment lattice on the exterior of the pack provides some subtle modularity and nylon webbing on the inside of the bag offers more familiar organization options. A sturdy 1000/500D Teflon-coated nylon makes up the rest of the bag, while YKK zippers throughout ensure easy and reliable access to your gear through daily use.

At 8L in capacity it's just the right size to supplement your pocket space for the rest of your everyday essentials. You even can carry a tablet in the main compartment, a water bottle on the side, and security pocket for stashing valuables or your CCW. With so much organizational space, the Veldspar can help de-clutter your carry as well and keep everything in its place.

With the Veldspar you can step up to carrying a tactical bag without committing to a tactical look. Pick one up and try it out for yourself at the link below.

Unlike most casual bags, tactical packs are built to last through the most demanding missions, usually for military, law enforcement, or emergency applications. Luckily for you and your EDC, you can find tactical-style bags with the same focus on high performance and longterm durability in a wide variety of styles, from small day packs to large duffel bags. In this guide, we'll go over some key features and qualities to look for in a good tactical bag for everyday carry as well as some of our favorite bags, each with a specialized purpose.

Nitecore NEB10 Excursion Bag

When it comes to your EDC bag, there are three main things you want it to be: rugged, organized, and easy to carry. Sometimes you'll find a bag that's got all the pockets you need, but it just isn't comfortable.

Nitecore's new NEB10 excursion bag aims to hit the sweet spot of a tactical pack suited for the urban commuter. It's got the heavy-duty construction and materials of tactical bags, with the size and organization to fit an EDCer's needs.

As a daily bag, the NEB10 keeps your gear in check with its array of compartments and expansion options. This includes a loop surface and 6-channel elastic organization in its main 6L compartment and dual front zippered pockets with mesh slip pockets. On the front is a MOLLE system laser-cut from Hypalon rubber that keep a low profile without any loss of expansion and modular capability, and on the sides are retention straps for even more attachment options.

But the NEB10's key feature as a daily bag comes in its 3-point harness system. Paired with a removable padded shoulder strap, the system lets you distribute the bag's weight evenly across your body for a secure carry while out and about. And as befitting a modern tactical pack, coated 1050D CORDURA nylon keeps your gear dry and protected.

Magpul DAKA Suppressor Pouch

By now, you might've seen Magpul's DAKA line of pouches and wallets recommended as weatherproof EDC options thanks to their rugged construction and protective materials. The newest addition to the DAKA line, the Suppressor Pouch, is like a trimmed down version of the original DAKA storage pouch. Officially, it's designed to fit a suppressor and its required NFA paperwork. But since you probably don't EDC one of those, you can look at this pouch in a different way. This is one of the most rugged tactical pen and pencil cases available today.

At 9 x 3 inches, the suppressor pouch is smaller than the rest of the DAKA line. That's just the right amount of space to store the writing implements of your choice and keep them safe on the go. Even if you don't carry multiple pens, it'll stash a few of those awkwardly long items in your EDC, like 2-cell flashlights, dedicated screwdrivers, pry bars, and more.

The Suppressor Pouch retains the rugged polymer construction that's welded to keep the elements out. Plus, a reliable, water-tight YKK zipper its contents safe from dirt and water. Each corner of the pouch also features a lanyard attachment point, letting you easily clip or tie the pouch into your EDC pack system.

If you're looking for a pencil case that's more on the rugged tactical side, consider giving this pouch a shot. Pick one up at the link below.
