Giveaway: Win a Dango Belt!

Who else loves free EDC gear? This week, we're hooking up one lucky reader with a versatile belt brought to you by our sponsor, Dango Products. The San Francisco-based company are best known for their multi-function minimalist wallets, and it's your chance to win their new Dango Belt. Their debut into utility essentials aims to give you both form and function to make the most of your everyday clothing.

Deal Alert: Dango Father's Day Wallet and Belt Bundles

Father's Day is around the corner on the 17th, but there's still time to get dad some great gear. And while he may be set with his EDC, there's still a few essentials you can get him that will add to both his security and utility. For this Father's Day Dango put together some gear bundles that you and your dad can share to upgrade your essentials, or give him a choice of backup in case of EDC emergency. Whichever the case, it's the perfect time to grab some great deals on Dango's latest and most popular products.

Dango's first featured bundle is a pair of D01 Dapper wallets and paracord tethers. The wallet is fully structured with a low-profile design and less tactical flair, making it TSA-friendly for urban carry. Dango combined their usual premium leather with durable aerospace aluminum resulting in a comfortable wallet that doesn't take up too much pocket space. It accommodates up to 12 cards total and keeps them safe from skimming thanks to RFID protection. The tethers are made from 10 feet of 550 paracord woven into a 6” cobra weave and tipped with an HK clip on one end to ensure your wallet is securely fastened to your pocket or bag.

The second bundle also includes a pair of tethers, but this time matched to Dango's T01 Tactical wallets. The T01's tough aluminum frame wrapped in premium leather makes for a tool that will keep your bases (and your money) covered in any occasion. It can hold up to 12 cards and has a tough elastic band for a few folded bills as well. But if you want to take advantage of all that this wallet has to offer, the included MT02 multi-tool adds 14 extra tools to your carry. Even with the MT02 inside, the wallet still only weighs 3.4 ounces and maintains a slim 0.38 inch profile.

Finally, Dango's third featured bundle includes their new Dango Belt in both Jet Black and Whiskey Brown colorways, perfect for matching dad's every outfit. The Dango Belt 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. 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.

Whether you're stepping up your wallet and belt game for yourself and your dad or giving him some fresh new essentials for his EDC, Dango's got Father's Day covered with their discounted bundles. But that's not all—head on over to their site to check out their other deals so you can save even more on the perfect gift.

Dango Belt

For many people, a belt is a belt: a piece of leather that holds your pants up. But for EDCers, a good belt is the difference between a guy keeping his outfit together and Batman. And like the rest of the tools they carry every day, a functional, reliable belt can perform well on its own while coming in handy at a moment's notice. Just like the Caped Crusader's famous accessory, Dango's debut into belts seeks to give you both form and function to make the most of your everyday clothing.

Before anything else, a belt has to its job well, which means it has to be built well enough to never let you—or your pants—down. The Dango Belt 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 itself is removable, meaning you can swap out straps to different colors (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.

The Dango Belt is an uncompromising accessory that looks good and performs even better for EDC. You can pick one up in your choice of size and strap color direct from Dango at the link below.

Dango T02 Titanium Tactical Wallet

While most gear is made from strong stainless steel or lightweight aluminum, one prized material combines the best of both worlds: titanium. But the toughness that makes titanium perfect for EDC is also what makes it so hard to work with to make a finished product. That's why titanium is usually reserved for only the best everyday carry gear. By swapping a titanium chassis into the mix, the new Dango T02 titanium tactical wallet takes its durability and light weight to the next level while keeping everything that made the original great. And this time around, it offers even more capacity in an all-new bifold design so you won't have to compromise capacity for a slim profile.

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.

And like other wallets in the Dango lineup, the T02 is compatible with the included 14-function stainless steel MT02 multi-tool. The MT02 insert covers essential EDC functions like opening boxes and bottles, helping you further reduce the bulk in your EDC.

The addition of titanium to the Dango wallet line-up is a welcome, logical progression towards everyday durability and light weight. If you're in the market for a new EDC wallet that strikes a balance of premium feel with practical features, make sure to give the T02 Tactical Wallet a look at the link below.

Dango P01 Pioneer Pack Bundle

As your EDC grows to cover more and more bases, managing how you carry everything can get tricky. There's more to it than simply shoving everything in your pockets and calling it a day. Consolidation is key. That's what makes the Dango P01 Pioneer wallet so compelling: it's a minimalist leather wallet and journal cover, complete with an integrated notebook and pen. With the new Pioneer Pack Bundle, you can toss in a one-piece multi-tool, some emergency paracord, and a spy capsule to round it out as an all-in-one kit. And since it's currently on sale at a discount, now's the best time to consolidate your carry.

The centerpiece of the Pioneer Pack Bundle is the P01 wallet. It's made from durable veg-tan leather for a comfortable, luxe handfeel that breaks in over time to accommodate up to 20 cards. It features an RFID-blocking laminated section to keep your information safe, as well as a silicone band to keep everything together.

The P01 holds more than just cards and cash, though. It's a journal cover with a built-in 48-page notebook and space for Dango's own CNC-machined aluminum EDC pen so you can take notes out and about. The pen takes a pressurized ink refill, meaning it'll reliably write in most conditions, too.

The other bundled items bring tons of extra functionality to the table. For starters, the MT02 multi-tool crams 14 functions into a stainless steel body roughly the size of a credit card. It covers your day-to-day tasks with handy wrenches, drivers, bottle and can openers, and a serrated sharpened edge for cutting cordage and boxes. Next, the paracord lanyard is a convenient way to have access to emergency cordage in survival situations, as well as the wallet itself when retrieving it from your pocket. Lastly, the food-grade aluminum stash capsule keeps your small essentials safe thanks to its waterproof construction and also gives you more to grip onto when handling the wallet.

You can get this nearly complete EDC as a bundle to save $25, available from Dango at the link below.

Dango Covert Cases

Modern phones are expensive investments, particularly the latest and greatest flagship models. And thanks to their ability to do most everything for both work and play, 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 cases offer a balance of strength and performance for your latest iPhone, giving it lean but substantial protection while also giving you a few new ways to carry and protect it, too.

The Covert 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 resists oil and abrasions to keep its exterior looking clean and sleek even with 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 lanyard on cases for the iPhone 6, 7, and 8 (or paracord sling included with the Covert Case for iPhone X) 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 while they're on sale for a limited time.

Dango D007 Limited Edition

When the occasion calls for you to suit up, that shouldn't mean you can't gear up too. Looking sharp and staying prepared can be tricky for any gent (or secret spy) — unless you've got the right gear. And when it comes to stylish, functional wallets, Dango's multi-tool equipped cardholders have always filled that niche. But their latest release, fittingly named the D007, takes it to the next level with a compelling mix of luxe styling and spy gadget utility that can go incognito just as easily as it can make a statement in your EDC.

It starts with the precision crafted champagne gold anodized 6061 aluminum chassis. It's sleek and lightweight while providing a structured body missing from most minimalist wallets. That structure lets you fit 12 of your most essential cards without the bulk. The gold frame is contrasted nicely with the jet black premium top grain leather cover. The contrast is taken even further with the high gloss nickel back plate. The mixture of high gloss and premium leather gives a feel akin to what you get when you step into a luxury car.

And because it comes with Dango's custom removable stainless steel multi-tool insert, this is a minimalist wallet with functionality that would make even James Bond jealous. It fits 14 different practical functions from a bottle opener to a hex wrench all in one slim footprint.

The Dango D007 wallet hits that sweet spot of luxury aesthetics, made-in-USA build quality, and practical function. With all its premium materials and features, the D007 comes as a limited release — only 2000 will be made, so be sure to secure your own at the link below.

Dango Vegetable Tanned Leather Wallets

If there's one sure sign of quality in your EDC wallet, it'd have to be the leather. In that aspect, it's hard to beat vegetable-tanned leather. It's made through a natural process resulting in a superior product with a luxe feel that only gets better with age. So if you want that broken-in leather feel, you should EDC a wallet that's built to last with all the everyday features you'd want. The C01 and P01 wallets from Dango are prime examples of this, built in the USA from vegetable-tan leather in modern, feature-packed designs.

With the C01, you get a minimalist wallet that can carry up to 10 cards and some folded cash. It also features a 6061 aluminum tab that helps you attach it to your belt or to your other gear so that it doesn't get lost. It's even compatible with Dango's special multi-tool frame, if you need more functionality. Plus, the vegetable-tanned leather covering the exterior balances out the wallet well. The result is a modern minimalist wallet with a traditional aesthetic appeal.

For those who need more space and functionality, the P01 bifold may work better. The P01 has enough space for 20 cards and some folded cash. But its compatibility with Dango's pen and paper system makes this wallet more useful for EDC. It can function both as your wallet and your notebook cover. The beauty of the vegetable-tanned leather used to make the wallet only makes it better.

As another sign of quality, Dango makes all their products by hand in San Francisco. They're also highly functional, designed to address your everyday carry needs. And of course, thanks to the vegetable-tanned leather, you can enjoy the unique patina of the wallet as it evolves with the rest of your EDC. Now's a great time to pick up a veg-tan wallet from Dango for $10 off as they're on sale until April 22nd in celebration of Earth month, too. Check them out at the link below.

Dango D01 Slate Gray Limited Edition

Dango's D01 minimalist wallet has a sleek, sophisticated styling fit for the office with a rugged aluminum frame built for longterm performance. It's the kind of wallet that says a lot by doing little, with—as its name suggests—a dapper, professional look that instantly dresses up any EDC. But even when you're suiting up, it pays to add a little pop to your ensemble. So with the limited edition Slate Gray colorway, Dango gives the D01 a striking statement right down the middle, giving the minimalist wallet a high-impact edge in style.

If you’re familiar with the rest of Dango’s product line then you’ll see how the D01 Dapper fits right in. It's a fully structured wallet with a low-profile design and less tactical flair, making it TSA-friendly for urban carry. Dango combined their usual premium leather with durable aerospace aluminum resulting in a wallet with comfortable handfeel and touchpoints that doesn't take up too much pocket space.

Even loaded with 6 cards, the entire package is only 0.3” thick. It does accommodate up to 12 cards total and keeps them safe from skimming thanks to RFID protection. The D01's striking red silicone band lets it secure a few bills, perfect for carrying an emergency stash of cash for the places that don't take cards. The notch along the side of the wallet lets you easily access your cards, and the integrated bottle opener is perfect for relaxing after a long workday.

From the office to a night on the town to your next weekend getaway, the Dapper Wallet keeps it slim, rugged, and stylish. Add a splash of color to your EDC by clicking on the link below.

Dango D02 Nickel-Plated Wallet

When it comes to EDC gear, style doesn't mean much without real substance. Usually it's rare to see both in the same design: over-engineered features can look clunky, and sleek styling isn't always built to last. But in the case of the Dango D02 wallet, its already stylish design gets even tougher through a special nickel-plated finish. Its hand-polished, high-hardness, and extra corrosion-resistant aluminum frame lets this wallet shine in any EDC.

Like their other options the frame of the D02 is aerospace grade aluminum, but the nickel-plated back is what makes the D02 stand out from the pack. Even more impressive is that with all that extra metal the wallet still weighs in at only 2.5 ounces. So you won’t have to worry about it weighing you down.

For added peace of mind Dango made sure this wallet was as secure as it is tough with RFID protection built-in. Its slim design doesn’t stop it from being able to fit up to 12 credit or business cards inside either. And their signature elastic band keeps a few folded bills on hand for when you need them. Throw in the optional MT02 multitool that’s compatible with all Dango wallets and you add an extra 14 tools to your carry without taking up any more pocket space. Whether you need to slice through rope, tighten down a screw, or open a beverage the MT02 has you covered.

The D02 Dapper wallet is anything but boring, so whether you’re looking to upgrade your current setup or want to treat yourself to a little something special you can’t go wrong here. If you want to slim down on bulk without giving up functionality make sure to click the link below.

Dango D01 Dapper Wallet

You can tell a lot about a person by the gear in their pockets. And if you want to put your best foot forward, it might be a good idea to swap that tattered old wallet for one that looks a little more professional. Or “dapper,” as Dango would put it with their D01 Wallet. It has sleek, sophisticated styling fit for the office with a rugged aluminum frame built for longterm performance.

If you’re familiar with the rest of Dango’s product line then you’ll see how the D01 Dapper fits right in. It's a fully structured wallet with a low-profile design and less tactical flair, making it TSA-friendly for urban carry. Dango combined their usual premium leather with durable aerospace aluminum resulting in a wallet with comfortable handfeel and touchpoints that doesn't take up too much pocket space. Even loaded with 6 cards, the entire package is only 0.3” thick. It does accommodate up to 12 cards total and keeps them safe from skimming thanks to RFID protection.

It's always a good idea to have some cash for those places that don't take card, and that isn't a problem with the D01 thanks to a textured elastic band perfect for a few bills. The clever design doesn't stop at the elastic band either. The notch along the side of the wallet means you can easily access your cards and the integrated bottle opener is perfect for relaxing after a long workday.
