Black Friday has come and gone, and our wallets have had a weekend to recover. But now's not the time to let up! Cyber Monday is here, with even more great deals to not only wrap up the weekend of steals and deals, but also plan ahead for the holidays. In this guide, we feature some great gift ideas from our friends and partners who are running sales for just one more day on their sites and catalogs. Below you'll find plenty of EDC favorites, as well as some new looks for gear that released earlier this year that make great gifts for adventure seekers and anyone with an appreciation for rugged, tactical gear.


Thyrm PyroVault Lighter Armor

When it comes to an everyday-carry friendly lighter, few are as ubiquitous and beloved as the simple Zippo lighter. But as useful and iconic as it is, it does have its weaknesses, like evaporating fuel and metal body that's not likely to survive continuous hard use. Thyrm, known for their ultra-rugged and versatile clips and battery cases, have the perfect accessory to up-armor your classic lighter. Made of heat-resistant reinforced polymer, the PyroVault is a sealing enclosure designed to protect your fire source from the harshest elements, while adding extra utility too. An o-ring seal keeps the elements out and minimizes evaporation, while a low-profile MOLLE/PALS webbing clip keeps your lighter close at hand. And when in use, a spring-loaded cap makes one-handed operation simple and efficient. If you'd like to pick up the PyroVault for Cyber Monday, Thyrm are offering a 20% sitewide discount with code EDC20, and will also throw in free shipping with code EDC20SHIP with a $59 minimum spend.

Inforce TFx Flashlight

With a rugged but lightweight reinforced polymer body that offers high-impact resistance and extreme durability, the Inforce TFx flashlight aims to strike a balance between performance and resilience. This isn't your everyday aluminum flashlight--the TFx instead makes use of its more flexible polymer body to add some unique touches, like large, heat-dissipating vents for improved temperature management and a deep, textured knurling to provide superior grip. A rubber tail switch controls its two main modes--700 lumens for 2 hours and 60 lumens for 12--along with momentary and strobe functions to round out its outputs. And even when carrying its 2 x CR123A batteries, the TFx weighs only 3.75 ounces, making it a lightweight and powerful addition to any EDC.

This may come off as a silly or dumb question, but what is the purpose of having something like the Pelican Go G40 Case? I guess I don't see a reason why this would be in my EDC, unless I was possibly transporting external hard drives / storage drives on my person everyday.
My 1st thought was for a couple spare clips, perhaps?
Someone who works a hard , labor or outside job and wants stuff protected. Someone in a wet environment or someone who kayaks a lot for example. Everyday carry is just like DNA , everyone is different and has different uses/ reasons. Pelican makes good tough stuff. I use cases they make for knives. Many cases can even be locked.
