My Everyday Carry
Service Tech/Road Manager in Bay Area/San Francisco, CA
Both my Spyderco & Gerber knives are priceless & used heavily nearly everyday for cutting who knows what free from under cars. The keygrip make my key carry bulletproof & the iamakey has all my schedules, training docs, hardware assignments, etc. The handmade leather pouch (for cash & cards) was something I picked up on a road trip through New Mexico. I chose items with some weight to them so I’ll know when they aren’t there & stuff I know will take a drop & not shatter.

Chances are, you don't really think much about your everyday duffel bag. It gets the job done, plain and simple. You load it up, knock it around, and it keeps on trucking. So if you need a bag for that kind of hard use, you'd better get one that's built from the ground up to be indestructible. Especially one that's backed by a lifetime warranty to carry for the long haul.
AMABILIS out of Seattle have made the DAVE Jr Duffel 2.0, designed with everyday carry and ruggedness at its core. It uses some of the toughest materials available to keep your gear protected. This includes double-layer military-grade tarpaulin for a weatherproof body, with a superfabric bottom that integrates ceramic plates to prevent wear and tear when propping up the DAVE on rough terrain. Of course mil-spec fittings and YKK zippers make an appearance as well. There's two ways to carry the DAVE (sling and with a side handle) making it suitable for everyday carry, and it's sized for TSA-compliant carry on dimensions, which make it handy for flights.
The DAVE Jr Duffel 2.0's already met its funding goal, and there's plenty of time to back one in the color of your choice at the Kickstarter link below.
