KeySmart Duct-Ling

Whether you're reinforcing your gear, performing quick fixes around the house, or field repairing your clothes and equipment, nothing comes close to the versatility of duct tape. The problem is, duct tape comes in bulky rolls that are anything but convenient to carry. You know KeySmart for their ability to compact a disorganized keychain into a sleek package fit for an EDC, and with the Duct-Ling, they've figured out duct tape, too.

While there have been attempts at making duct tape easy to carry—like wrapping it around a card or pen—the Duct-Ling keeps it simple, as the most effective things are. It's a machined stainless steel cylinder with smooth, raised ends that keep the tape in place and neatly wrapped. These ends let the Duct-Ling sit alongside your other essentials without fear of damaging them, and a keychain hole on the top let you attach the Duct-Ling as you see fit to your keychain, bag, or a suspension hook.

It's got enough room to hold about 1.5 feet of tape, which is plenty for emergency patch or repair jobs. And thanks to its stainless steel construction, you can reuse the Duct-Ling for a lifetime, letting you make the most out of those huge duct tape rolls you're forced to leave in your emergency kit or toolbox.

Stick to the simple solution for carrying one of the most useful adhesives you can have in your kit. Pick up the Duct-Ling from Amazon at the link below.

Davek Alert Mini & Grande Umbrellas

Following up their original Alert come Davek’s Alert Mini & Grande Umbrellas. The Alert Mini measures in at just 7-inches closed and easily fits into compact bags, pants pockets, and tight glove compartments, while the larger Alert Grande features a massive 55-inches in diameter canopy when opened for full coverage in heavy downpours. They’re all built extremely durably of fiberglass and aircraft-grade aluminum to attain a sweet spot of rigidity and flexibility: enough of the former to keep its form in strong winds and a touch of the latter to flip inside out and back in gale-like situations without permanent damage… (via GearHungry)

Abraham Lincoln's Final Carry

Analyzing the contents of Abraham Lincoln's pockets from the night he was assassinated from an EDC perspective.

Humangear GoBites

In attaining portability, most combination utensil sets make sacrifices. Humangear’s GoBites Uno & Duo, on the other hand, don’t, nor will they figuratively tear your wallet to shreds upon purchase. These heat-resistant, BPA-free nylon utensils come in two variants — the simple Uno and the two-piece Duo, which locks together in either closed or end-to-end conformations for portability or reaching into deeper containers and bowls, respectively — and are lightweight as well as comfortable to grasp through longer meals. They also simply outperform sporks, splitting food (as we all too often do without a knife) thanks to tapered sides and twirling noodles better using their deeper tines.

Corter for Boylston Trading Co.
Leather Cover for Field Notes Brand notebooks.
Oil tanned shell with a natural vegetable tanned interior.
Tanned, oiled and buffed by hand.

Editor’s Note: I got to handle these notebook covers while I was in Boston this past summer. Once again, Corter delivers an impeccable product in terms of fit and finish (I ordered my wallet and phone case from him a year ago and they’ve held up flawlessly). To those of you who carry your pocket notebooks naked and experience durability issues, consider one of these covers as a simple, reversible way to add some luxury, and, more importantly, protection to your notebook carry.

Editor’s Note: This is an example of why I request some detailed item description of submissions if possible, because even I am having trouble identifying that pouch. It looks like the Maxpedition EDC Pocket Organizer, but there are a lot out there so I’m not sure. I’m thinking of putting one together myself for my birthday as a micro bug out bag/toolkit… while hoping I’d never have to use it once it’s complete. Anyway, it looks nicely loaded — for my purposes mine would look similar except I’d probably have a small first aid kit and a Write in the Rain pad in there somewhere. Oh and if not all that cord is necessary, braiding it into some sort of really large lanyard could help compact it to fit better. Thanks for sharing!

My mind was blown when I realized that Izaya Orihara from the anime series Durarara! keeps what appears to be a Spyderco CentofanteIII as his EDC knife. I’ve been an anime fan longer than I’ve been into EDC and knives so I didn’t make the connection until now.

Editor’s Disclaimer: lol so this type of post almost further reinforces arguments against EDCers with knives as posing as mall ninjas… and probably a very few percentage of you will appreciate/understand this post when I say that my life could probably be turned into an anime about an EDC maleblogger engineering nerd on a university campus struggling to nanpa girls to no avail despite having the tools on hand to fix their broken sunglasses, share an umbrella in the rain, light up a dark and scary road while walking one home after a long night at the library, and I’ll just stop now
