Whether you need a daily pack for urban EDC or your outdoor adventures, you'll appreciate the Direct Action DUST pack's thoughtful design. Able to carry a 15" laptop, tablet, hydration bladder, and more, this 24-hour pack keeps your essentials organized and easy to access. Its front admin panel has multiple slots in different sizes, a clear map sleeve, and a mesh pocket for visibility. For quicker access or extra storage, you can attach gear to its unique external MOLLE system. Instead of stitching on webbing to make the grid, Direct Action actually laser cuts slots into the material itself. The result is a more minimal look without sacrificing functionality. Each bag sports a sturdy paracord drag handle so you'll always have useful cordage on hand. Lightweight, water-resistant, and easy-to-carry, the DUST is a great way to haul your gear.
While we have covered quite a few different Kickstarter-sourced watch brands, there have not been all that many that we have seen repeat their efforts on the crowd-funding platform. One of the brands that I was impressed with via some time with a prototype is back, this time heading back to an era where pocket watches jumped to the wrist of servicemen. Those are colloquially known as trench watches, and ManchesterWatchWorks is back with their Westminster and Vergennes models to commemorate that era…

The Bomber Barrel by Bomber & Company is a minimal and lightweight duffel bag invented to carry your daily essentials. Lightweight ripstop nylon, a padded removable strap and paracord zipper pulls result in a refined duffel that would be just as ideal for an urban commute as it would at a campsite.

Included with the Bomber Barrel is a 550 paracord survival bracelet and a mini travel kit for your smaller EDC goods. At 18”x10”x10” and under 1 lb., the bag is just the right size for a wide range of applications. Hit the link below to learn more about Kickstarter’s most funded bag ever.
If you’ve been looking for a classy blade to carry, consider the Olive Wood Laguiole by Baladeo. This knife is a slim gentleman’s folder with a unique blade profile and beautiful olive wood handles. Crafted from 440 stainless steel, the blade balances edge retention and corrosion resistance for a knife that will stay sharp and maintain its luster for a long time. The intricately textured spine and thumb lock add to the classic aesthetic that has been popular for centuries. Not all EDC knives have to look tactical — Baladeo’s take on the Laguiole is an excellent example of that. Whether you’re opening a letter or prepping a snack, this tool is a worthy companion.
Managing one's keychain is as much an art as it is a science, and the market has spoken with the number of products on the market to improve its heft and efficiency.

Made of either strong and lightweight titanium or mokume — an alloy made of copper and nickel/silver — the VolksDangler comes with an array of clips, rings, colors, and even glow slots to fully customize your keychain setup. A little under two weeks are left in the campaign, and like the VolksDangler itself, backers have plenty of options for their pledge.
