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)
No matter your destination, you can be prepared with access to fire right in your pocket. This TSA-approved, eco-friendly electronic lighter is both gas-less and flameless, making it ideal for you frequent fliers. It can ignite anything you throw at it with its high output coil heating element, even in high wind. A 15 second auto-shutoff feature helps ensure your safety as well. The lighter will last up to 50 uses before having to plug it in, and its built-in USB adapter and light-up charge indicator makes the recharging process easy. You can purchase this lighter in either black or silver at our shop at the link below.
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.

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

Editor’s Note: Nice organization here. I still haven’t gotten around to picking one of these organizers up, but I think they’d work great to toss into different bags. An “urban wallet” is also another similar alternative for smaller load outs that would make gearing up every morning easier if you change pants or something. If you want to cover a few more bases you could consider adding a multitool to the package and possibly a spare battery for the light. Thanks for sharing~
