Dango Loop Hook and Wall Mount System

Just like how suspension hooks for your keys keep them within reach and within sight, Dango's Utility Hook system is a useful companion for larger essentials like your bag, headphones, or jacket. After all, even if your gear is as tough as nails, a little extra protection from getting toppled and knocked around on the ground won't hurt, especially when you're hauling around expensive essentials. The Dango Loop Hook is a machined aluminum tool that counterbalances your gear off the side of a table, counter, or other flat surface for a hands-free way to keep your gear in place while you're on the move. For something so seemingly simple in its function, it's executed with thoughtful details that set it apart from ordinary hardware.

The Hook's top hook has a non-slip grip strip that keeps your bag firmly anchored to a surface. Instead of bent metal, the Hook is fully CNC-machined from lightweight aircraft grade aluminum for added strength and rigidity. There’s a hole in one end so you can mount it on a keychain, and its outer edge has a built-in cap lifter for popping open a cold one at the end of a long day of commuting. You can opt to keep the Hook on your bag via the machined strap slot too, making it even handier.

The Wall Mount is an an additional accessory that you can purchase along with the Loop Hook that effectively turns it into a 2-hook hanging system. The built-in cap lifter latches on to the mount, functioning as a standard wall hook for your jacket, bag, and more, decluttering your home or office without taking up a lot of extra space.

While good EDC gear should be able to take a lick or two, the Dango Hook helps prolong the life of your gear by removing the unnecessary wear and tear of plopping your bag on the ground. They make all of their goods in the USA from premium, EDC-ready materials. You can pick up the Loop Hook and Wall Mount in a variety of finishes and materials at the link below.

Dango Custom DTEX Wallets

Thanks to an extensive catalog covering all your card-carrying needs, Dango wallets have become a staple in many EDCer's pockets. But sometimes you need a piece of gear exactly matching your specifications—or the rest of your carry—while still preferring familiar styles and features. Dango already lets you build custom wallets, but now they offer an even more high-tech option with their newly developed DTEX material. It's a non-leather, highly durable, and water-resistant material that you can use to make the perfect rugged EDC wallet.

The customization process starts with Dango's CNC-machined aluminum chassis as the centerpiece of the wallet, adding structure and rigidity without much weight. From there you can take your pick of the two DTEX pockets, either a single pocket sleeve for a sleeker profile or a 3-pocket bifold to hold more of your essentials. The DTEX material itself is textured and flexible, molding itself to your use similar to leather.

Bringing everything together are the wallet's band and bolts. The former comes in 7 colorways, making it either the most versatile component of the wallet's look, or a way to make the whole thing pop when choosing one of the vibrant colors. The band secures the bifold flap while giving the wallet a better grip, as well as an extra place to slot in some essentials like folded cash. Finally, the hex wallet screws are what locks the entire wallet down. The #1-72 x 1/8 steel bolts come in either black and silver, and a provided hex wrench gives you the option to change up the look of the rest of the wallet's pieces or replace them if needed.

It's hard to find the perfect wallet, but with the ability to build one from the ground up with innovative materials and construction, Dango's customized bifolds come pretty darn close. Start building your own on Dango's site at the link below.

Dango Belt and Jet Black Buckle

You may not realize it, but your belt could play a more important role in your EDC than you think. Besides just holding up your pants and all the gear you carry in them, it also serves as a platform for new carry options. Even if you're not gearing up with sheaths, pouches, or holsters on your belt, the Dango Belt adds discreet storage with a stash capsule built right into the buckle. Their latest belt buckle is stealthier than ever in a new Jet Black anodized aluminum color that pairs perfectly with their black belt strap to add style and function to your everyday clothing.

The Dango Belt is designed first and foremost to be a sturdy belt, built tough to never let you or your pants down. Two main pieces comprise the belt: a belt strap made in the USA by hand from black Italian veg-tan leather and a fully machined 7-piece buckle now available in a new Jet Black anodized aluminum.

The buckle itself is removable, meaning you can swap out for a different color (particularly the new black buckle) or to alternate straps in your choice of Jet Black or Whiskey Brown to fit your daily ensemble. The buckle also holds a capsule that integrates into its frame. With a 0.3" inner diameter and 1.9" internal height, it's a discreet part of the belt's design while giving you a space to hold small essentials such as pills, matches, or a secret stash for cash. If you need even more utility, you can pick up a separate belt fob in the strap's colors to serve as a latch point for your keys and more.

The Dango Belt is an uncompromising accessory that looks good and performs even better for EDC. You can configure a stealthy black-on-black look by pairing their black belt strap and their new black buckle from their shop at the link below.

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.

The Prize Up For Grabs

We had this to say about the Dango T01 Spec Ops Edition Wallet:

To replace Dango's usual go-to material of vegtan leather, they've opted for a non-leather textile dubbed DTEX.

The Spec Ops edition wallets offer DTEX versions of both the single pocket T01 and the Bifold T01 to match your storage and organization needs. The single pocket accommodates up to 12 cards, while the three-pocket Bifold (pictured) holds 12+ cards in its more organized layout. Whichever DTEX pocket option you choose, the Spec Ops Edition wallets pair it with a CNC'd aluminum chassis for structure and RFID-shielding. The metal components in the Spec Ops edition are also finished with the same durable, scratch-resistant Cerakote ceramic coating you often find on firearms.

Prize Value: $109

Dango T01 Spec Ops Edition

We're seeing a shift towards more high tech materials in EDC gear for tactical, outdoors, and general EDC alike. These technical fabrics often have the edge over natural materials in terms of performance, which is what you'd want for a functional EDC. While Dango's lineup of leather wallets offered utility through their designs, the newest addition does it with a material focus. As their first non-leather wallet, the T01 Spec Ops Edition boasts a newly developed DTEX fabric and pairs it with a Cerakote-finished metal chassis for a rugged, military inspired look. Between the blend of materials and color options, it's Dango's most tactical offering yet.

Rounding out the T01's tactical utility is the included MT02 multi-tool, which packs 14 different functions into the size of a credit card.

The Spec Ops Edition T01 is available now in your choice of the single-pocket or bifold versions made from grey DTEX, paired with an OD green or desert sand Cerakote aluminum chassis.

Dango Customized Bifold Wallets

Thanks to an extensive catalog covering all your card-carrying needs, Dango wallets have become a staple in many (front!) pockets. But sometimes, you need a piece of gear exactly matching your specifications—or the rest of your carry—while still preferring familiar styles and features. Dango hears you, and now has a new option to build your own custom bifold wallet. From pockets to leather to bands and bolts, you can build your perfect wallet, backed by Dango's long history and USA-made quality.

The customization process starts with Dango's CNC-machined aluminum chassis as the centerpiece of the wallet, adding structure and rigidity without much weight. From there you can choose one of three colors (Whiskey Brown, Jet Black and Moss Green) of the 3-pocket leather piece. This component is made from genuine top grain leather, and holds up to 4 cards in each slot for a total of 12.

Bringing everything together are the wallet's band and bolts. The former comes in 7 colorways, making it either the most versatile component of the wallet's look, or a way to make the whole thing pop when choosing one of the vibrant colors. The band secures the bifold flap while giving the wallet a better grip, as well as an extra place to slot in some essentials like folded cash.

Giveaway: Win a Dango T02 Titanium Tactical Wallet!

Update: Congrats to Joel F., winner of this week's giveaway! Stay tuned for more chances to win gear here on Everyday Carry.

Who else loves free EDC gear? This week, we're hooking up one lucky reader with a heavy-duty tactical wallet brought to you by our sponsor, Dango Products. The San Francisco-based company are best known for their multi-function minimalist products, and it's your chance to win their tough T02 Titanium Tactical Wallet. It takes the popular EDC material and elevates their signature minimalist wallet blueprint, adding even more functionality and capacity with a bi-fold design.

The Prize Up For Grabs

We had this to say about the Dango T02 Titanium Tactical Wallet:

Like the rest of Dango's popular EDC-friendly wallet designs, the T02 mixes minimalist aesthetics with practical qualities like EDC multi-functionality, a high capacity, and slim design. Two things set this particular model apart. The first is the beautiful one-piece solid titanium chassis that's more durable and corrosion-resistant compared to previous models while still being incredibly lightweight. The high-quality chassis is precision CNC-machined in the United States, and built tough enough to handle all the bumps and scrapes of daily use. And because it's made out of corrosion-resistant titanium, it can stand up to the elements even outdoors in poor weather.

Prize Value: $199

How to Enter

Dango MT02 Card Tool

While multi-tools are convenient for handling daily tasks, they tend to be pretty bulky to carry. But not all multi-tools have to weigh you down or take up all your pocket space. Instead of being a brick in your pocket, Dango's MT02 multi-tool is designed to integrate with your other daily essential—your wallet—to give you 14 functions while still slipping into your carry with ease. It's a unique and robust addition to your EDC that's able to pull its own weight while making the most of what you're already carrying.

On its own the MT02 is not your ordinary card-sized tool. Rather than a flimsy strip of metal with a rudimentary set of functions, it's machined from a thick slab of high-carbon stainless steel so you'll never have to fear bending or breaking it. These are arranged on the outer edge of each of the MT02's sides and corners, with the center cutout acting as a grip that gives ample clearance for your knuckles.

The way the main sides work is the MT02 sits either flush with its compatible wallets (the Dango T01 Tactical or D01 Dapper wallets) to expose the bottle opener along the bottom via the wallets' push notch, or by sitting halfway out of the wallets to give you access to the full set of tools along the side. Index points on the short sides of the MT02 lock the tool into place into compatible notches on both wallets during use, giving you a full-handed grip that also puts their knurling on the bottom edge to good use.

Using this half-open, full-grip configuration, you're ready to get to cutting with either the MT02's serrated saw edge/blade along its top side, opening with its 1/4” hex wrench or can opener on its top corner, or, by flipping the MT02 around, get more options for wrenches and drivers with its bottom edge. That's not all, of course. You can also take the tool out on its own to make use of its additional functions, including a ruler, rope tensioner, and even a phone stand.

Whether by itself or as a utility upgrade to your Dango wallet, the MT02 ticks all the boxes of a useful everyday multi-tool. You can pick one up direct from Dango at the link below.

Dango Slate Grey D01 Dapper Wallet

You don't always need your gear to be “tactical” if you want it to be tough. Case in point: Dango's D01 wallet skews more towards the “dapper” look without sacrificing durability. And now you can keep a low-profile without resorting to the all-black, tactical look with the Dango D01 in Slate Grey. Originally a limited edition, Slate is here to stay, giving you another option for a rugged, minimalist EDC wallet with an anti-bling appeal.

The Slate D01 starts with its CNC-machined aluminum frame, offering structure and strength without the bulk or weight. Top grain leather comprises the main storage section of the wallet for a slim profile and luxurious feel in hand. Finally, a silicone band serves as a simple and easy way to keep the wallet and any loose bills secure. And despite the compact size, it can accommodate up to 12 cards. Other useful features round out the D01, including a built-in bottle opener, RFID shielding, and a lanyard attachment point for more ways to carry.

You can grab the once-limited Slate Grey D01 at a new low price at the link below.

Dango Belt and Belt Fob Bundle

Making the most out of every piece of gear is what EDCers do best, from their most functional multi-tool down to something as simple as a belt. More than a piece of leather that keeps your pants in check, a belt gives you extra space and potential for even more utility, something Dango have already done with their Dango Belt. Now they're introducing more functionality with their new Belt Fob, a companion accessory that fits perfectly on the belt that gives you even more options for EDC and security.

The Dango Belt itself comes in two parts: a strap handmade in the USA from Italian vegetable-tanned leather, and a 7-piece buckle machined from high-strength but lightweight 7075 aluminum. The buckle also holds a capsule that integrates into its frame, a discreet part of its design that gives you a space to hold small essentials such as pills, matches, or a secret stash for cash.

The Belt Fob itself is made from the same Italian vegetable-tanned leather in Jet Black or Whiskey Brown. It matches the Dango Belt perfectly, or accommodates belt widths up to 2.1” if you'd like to match it to one you already own.  It can also act independently as a key fob, with its stainless steel hardware acting as a tether point for keys or for securing your phone or wallet pairing nicely with Dango's other products.

Carry well, carry safely, but above all, carry in style. You can pick up the Dango Belt and Belt Fob Bundle in your choice of size and color direct from Dango at the link below.
