Paracord

Uberleben Leicht Firestarter

Few people will deny that a fire starter is a handy tool to have, but they’re not always made for EDC. Long rods and awkward carrying cases make them easier to stash in a bag than in your pockets. But every now and then something comes along that won’t take up any pocket space at all. This time, that comes in the form of the Uberleben Leicht fire starter neck lanyard. It weighs next to nothing, but in an emergency situation it could be the most important tool in your carry.

If you’ve ever gone hiking you know that packing light is essential. The Leicht fire starter weighs only one ounce, leaving you with more weight to work with for the rest of your loadout. Plus, the lanyard itself is made from paracord, which has plenty of emergency and survival applications as well. It's threaded through a ferrocerium rod and ring scraper designed to work together to get sparks flying to start your fires. Whether you’re at high altitudes trekking through mountains or stuck in a rainstorm, you can count on the Leicht to light. With a lifespan of around 12,000 strikes, this isn’t a “one and done” kind of tool.

Even if your day to day is a little less adventurous, it’s always good to be prepared. Whether you're looking to add a firestarter to your EDC or want an ultralight backup, the Uberleben Leicht is a convenient option. Get one for your kit 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.

10 Ways to EDC Paracord

A bundle of paracord is one of the most versatile and useful things you can have in your EDC. That's because its strength and durability allows you to do more with it than might think. You can tie things together, use it to repair straps and cords, and even turn it into an emergency tourniquet. The possibilities are almost endless, and versatility is all well and good, but you still might find it a bit strange to carry around a bundle of rope. Usually you'll see EDCers tie a short lanyard to their knife or flashlight, but the good news is that there are plenty of other ways to discreetly carry paracord. In this guide, we'll show you some unconventional ways to integrate this useful cordage into your everyday carry.
