My Everyday Carry
A consequence of my research is that i often have to work irregular hours, wait around for long periods of time and cross the city on foot or rapidly by bike. My EDC reflects these needs:
Troop London Courier bag - Holds all the stuff pictured easily. Good for cycling or walking
Eddie Bauer Rippac rain jacket - Folds up really small, hi vis. Keeps out the always unpredictable English weather
Samsung galaxy s2, with custom decal and case
A hex key - bike repairs
Zebra B4A3 multi pen
A Sharpie - Absolutely vital for labelling things in the lab
Europa minor pad + Poquito pen - For making experimental notes.
Nook simple touch with glow light + case made by my girlfriend - I put scientific papers on this
Lens cloth and an emergency sewing kit
Sapphire blue zippo - for lighting Bunsen’s and acting cool
Pill case + very basic first aid kit (plasters, aspirin and caffeine)
Ultrafire cree torch - Attaches to my bike
Victorinox Swiss champ - for fixing stuff (mainly an ancient machine i have to run some of my experiments on)
Mini locking pliers - bike repairs, adjusting lab equipment
Victorinox belt hook with keys, a photon light, a safety pin and a rubber band
Wenger Delemont Watchmaker 85 - Decent knife with a useful pry tool
Knock off Boker plus Vox tool - picked it up in China for £2.50. Used to open crates
Knackered Casio watch with equally tatty Nato strap - Refuses to break
Mandatory paracord bracelet
Klipsch s4 (mk1) headphones - good headphones, 5 years of use so far
Micro wallet - i’m not a fan of change
iGO sync and charge key ring
Sansa clizip 8gb (+64gb micrpo sd) - A recent replacement for my venerable ipod classic. Haven’t made my mind up about it yet

While there are many wallet multitools out there, they don't always work as well as you'd expect. That's because they compromise on performance for portability to let you carry them in a standard credit card slot. For best results, the wallet and multitool work together as a system.
The Dango Tactical wallet delivers just that. It's a wallet that integrates storage with a multitool that's actually useful. It has space for a mix of up to 12 cards and some cash within its genuine leather pouch and back plate. These two components stay attached to the wallet via a silicone band wrapped around the frame. The multitool fits within that frame, and fulfills 14 popular EDC functions, including a screwdriver, bottle opener, and a hex wrench. It's also made out of high carbon stainless steel, allowing the integral knife and saw to stay sharp. The Dango has all this while keeping things small and lightweight due to its 6061 aluminum frame.
What makes the Dango special is how the wallet itself makes effective use of the multitool. It has detents that allow the multitool to jut out in use, turning the wallet into a solid grip surface. You'll have firm control over the tool, and enough leverage to actually do things with it as well.
You can go ahead and consolidate your personal wallet and mulitool carry with confidence with the Dango Tactical wallet. Secure your own at the Kickstarter link below.
