Gerber Flatiron

When it comes to EDC, it's all about matching the right tool for the job. And if the task requires superior slicing or capable chopping, then it's a cleaver that's worthy of a carry. Instead of settling on a slim profile meant for precision work, cleavers are designed to be solid and beefy enough to drive those heavy cuts home. The Flatiron is Gerber's bold foray into the realm of folding cleavers, offering formidable features at an affordable price.

Since a cleaver first and foremost needs to chop well, then it needs the blade to do it. The Flatiron comes with a 3.8” 7Cr17MoV plain-edge blade in the traditional cleaver design, giving you plenty of room for large cuts. You get a slight upsweep near the blade's tip for a bit more control on long slices, while towards the handle you get a large finger choil that allows secures your grip when choking up the knife. And for deployment, a thumb hole is cut into the blade's beefy spine for ambidextrous opening.

Speaking of grip, the Flatiron's substantial handle offsets and balances the knife's large blade, giving you full-handed coverage with its 4.8” length. On one side you have textured G-10 for reliable purchase for your fingers, while a machined aluminum frame lock graces its opposite side. One feature on the knife that you don't usually see on frame locks is an over-travel guard that prevents you from bending the lock too much in the wrong direction, minimizing wear and tear for regular use. Finally, a low-profile pocket clip and built-in lanyard hole lets you EDC the Flatiron as needed.

Whether needing chopping prowess or just preferring the bold style of a classic cleaver knife, the Gerber Flatiron's got what you need. Pick up this robust folder from Amazon at the link below.

Dango Capsule XL

Chances are you can't afford to lose the things you keep in your EDC in case of emergency. Things like cash, medication, and your usual survival kit essentials shouldn't be carried loose in your pocket with the rest of your gear, especially when losing them when you need them can mean the difference between life and death. That's where stash capsules come in handy: they keep small items safe, dry, and at the ready. Dango's newest Capsule XL offers the same watertight and practically bombproof aluminum construction with even more capacity, making it a versatile addition to your kit.

Dango Capsules are precision-machined in the United States out of lightweight 6061 aluminum, and they are anodized to be food safe. That means it's okay to stash your medication inside without having to worry about metal poisoning, something you can't be sure of with cheaper solutions from questionable sources. The aluminum's excellent strength-to-weight ratio keeps the items you stash inside safe from crushing without adding much bulk. The capsules are also built to be waterproof up to 1000 feet.

The Capsules come in two different sizes, at 0.85 inches for the small version and 2.95 inches for the larger XL. The smaller Capsule is perfect for pills, small batteries, and other tiny and easily lost pieces of gear. The XL is sized just right to carry an emergency stash of cash or survival gear. Both can also be used to carry liquid inside, if needed. And the best part is each Capsule is designed with a quad loop security cap that lets you attach it to your pants, your bag, or other gear to help prevent against loss.

You owe it to yourself to keep the smallest and most important items safe. Dango Capsules can help you do just that. You can pick both the Capsule and the Capsule XL today for a low price that includes a paracord hook tether. Check them out and find one in a color to match your EDC at the website below.

EVERGOODS MQD24 and CTB40 Crossover Backpacks

We EDC our gear to keep us prepared for whenever and wherever adventure strikes. And for some of us, the endgame is finding that one bag to carry it all no matter what and where that might be. EVERGOODS is dedicated to making that one bag a reality with their line of crossover equipment. At the helm is GORUCK's co-founder and former head of product who has split experience between New York City and Bozeman, MT for a one-of-a-kind insight into “city to mountain” gear. They've just launched two new packs: the MQD24, a 24L daypack designed with quick access in mind, and the CTB40, a 40L hybrid backpack that blurs the line between carry-on luggage and gear hauler.

Inspired by traditional top-loading mountaineering packs, the MQD24 (Mountain Quick Draw 24L) has a few tricks up its sleeve to keep in line with the Crossover Equipment theme. Its namesake Quick Draw mechanism works like a drawstring cinch, conveniently and intuitively opening and closing the main compartment of the pack in one smooth motion. The clever, forward-leaning design towards the front of the pack helps keep water out without the hassle of unbuckling or unrolling like on other top-loading packs. The second main feature that makes the MQD24 ideal for on-the-go EDC is its side zipper. It grants quick access to the center and bottom of the bag without taking it off your back by drawing it under your arm. Between the Quick Draw toploader and side-entry zipper, getting to your gear is a snap.

For those trips when you're carrying more than your daily essentials, there's the CTB40 (Civic Transit Bag 40L). It's something between a padded, softshell carry-on luggage and a backpack designed with a focus on both efficient packing and comfortable carry. Its “flex fold compression” system starts with a large, unobstructed clamshell-opening main compartment for easy packing. Semi-rigid “wings” protect and contain the contents, while two compression straps lock everything down. The top lid of the pack serves as a built-in travel organizer, with multiple mesh and zippered compartments for the rest of your essentials. Once closed, you can comfortably carry the pack using its backpack straps, or carry it briefcase-style from its beefy side and top handles. Thanks to its versatile design and rugged materials, it can pull double duty as a travel pack or as a sports equipment and gear hauler when going from urban to outdoor environments.

Both packs are made from durable, high denier nylon and jam packed with tons of thoughtful features. Head over to the Kickstarter project page for in-depth breakdowns of each bag at the link below and secure one for yourself before the campaign ends on August 13th.

Benchmade Mini Crooked River

All too often when you look for a pocket knife with the right modern features and performance to be your daily driver, you'll find your options skew towards the tactical side of things. But if a tactical design doesn't suit your needs or style, what's left? Hunting knives offer a more traditional style, but they're usually too big for EDC and lack common features from modern blades. So leave it to Benchmade with their decades of experience in American manufacturing of both tactical and hunting knives alike to fill the void with the Mini Crooked River. It's a scaled down and more EDC-friendly version of their original Crooked River hunting knife, which paired classic styling with premium materials and modern features.

Although it might look like it upon first glance, The Mini Crooked River isn't your grandfather's hunting knife. You'll find modern materials throughout the knife: aluminum bolsters, contour-stabilized “Dymondwood” handles, and high-vis hunter orange details in the G10 backspacer and pivot accent. It still features a classic clip-point shape on its 3.40” blade, but it comes in a premium CPM-S30V steel.

Materials aside, the Mini Crooked River operates and performs like a present-day knife thanks to its ambidextrous thumbstud manual deployment and AXIS lock mechanism. Slight jimping near the spine of the blade offers a bit more control, but its otherwise smooth handles and sweeping lines result in an elegant overall aesthetic. Its tip-up pocket clip makes it easy to carry and retrieve while its 4.5” closed length, 0.5” handle thickness and 3.3 oz weight keep bulk to a minimum too. For an EDC experience from Benchmade that's less tactical and every bit as practical, check out the Mini Crooked River at the link below.

Dango MT02 Card Tool

While multi-tools are convenient for handling daily tasks, they tend to be pretty bulky to carry. But not all multi-tools have to weigh you down or take up all your pocket space. Instead of being a brick in your pocket, Dango's MT02 multi-tool is designed to integrate with your other daily essential—your wallet—to give you 14 functions while still slipping into your carry with ease. It's a unique and robust addition to your EDC that's able to pull its own weight while making the most of what you're already carrying.

On its own the MT02 is not your ordinary card-sized tool. Rather than a flimsy strip of metal with a rudimentary set of functions, it's machined from a thick slab of high-carbon stainless steel so you'll never have to fear bending or breaking it. These are arranged on the outer edge of each of the MT02's sides and corners, with the center cutout acting as a grip that gives ample clearance for your knuckles.

The way the main sides work is the MT02 sits either flush with its compatible wallets (the Dango T01 Tactical or D01 Dapper wallets) to expose the bottle opener along the bottom via the wallets' push notch, or by sitting halfway out of the wallets to give you access to the full set of tools along the side. Index points on the short sides of the MT02 lock the tool into place into compatible notches on both wallets during use, giving you a full-handed grip that also puts their knurling on the bottom edge to good use.

Using this half-open, full-grip configuration, you're ready to get to cutting with either the MT02's serrated saw edge/blade along its top side, opening with its 1/4” hex wrench or can opener on its top corner, or, by flipping the MT02 around, get more options for wrenches and drivers with its bottom edge. That's not all, of course. You can also take the tool out on its own to make use of its additional functions, including a ruler, rope tensioner, and even a phone stand.

Whether by itself or as a utility upgrade to your Dango wallet, the MT02 ticks all the boxes of a useful everyday multi-tool. You can pick one up direct from Dango at the link below.

Thyrm PyroVault Lighter Armor

When it comes to EDC, a classic Zippo lighter might be as close as you can get to perfect. It's windproof, portable, and easy to use (not to mention all the cool tricks you can do with it…) But it isn't waterproof and its fuel can evaporate over time, making it less reliable in outdoors or survival situations. Thyrm's new PyroVault aims to solve the beloved Zippo's fatal flaws while adding even more EDC-friendly features. It's like a futuristic suit of armor for your favorite windproof lighter.

The PyroVault locks things down in an extremely durable, heat-resistant polymer enclosure sized to accommodate most butane and fluid windproof lighter inserts. It features aggressive grip surfaces and a spring-loaded latch for easy one handed use. Most importantly, its O-ring seal keeps elements out and minimizes fuel evaporation, making it a much more worthy companion for your outdoor excursions and less likely to run out of fuel when you're out in the field. The spring latch combined with the enhanced water resistance gives it an edge over the more common peanut lighter alternatives, which can be cumbersome to unscrew and operate (especially when your hands are wet).

The PyroVault also adds one of the most conspicuously absent features on a lighter: a pocket clip. The back of the PyroVault features a low-profile clip designed to attach to MOLLE/PALS webbing on your pack or other compatible gear. The PyroVault is available in your standard assortment of tactical colors, a hi-vis orange color for outdoors use, and a low-profile urban grey for general EDC. For a quick way to uparmor your lighter, check out Thyrm's latest at the link below.

Olight i3T EOS Flashlight

Once you've seen enough of them, you can probably guess how a flashlight works and performs just by looking at it. Giant heads and bigger batteries throw long range, while smaller AAA lights usually trade lumen output for convenience and portability. But thanks to the progression of flashlight tech, bigger and better performance is starting to come from even the smallest platforms. Olight have been ushering in a new generation of functional EDC lights in recent years, with the I3T EOS bucking the trend of what we've come to expect from an compact light. It's got style, power, functionality, and a rare appearance AAA light feature—a tailswitch—that makes it a compelling light for any EDC.

The first concern for AAA flashlights is usually their output. You're probably used to seeing around 100 lumens out of AAA lights, but the I3T is able to output 180 lumens for over 20 minutes with its Philips LUXEON TX emitter. This is unheard of in terms of power and runtime from an AAA light, especially since it's able to do it with a regular alkaline battery. Another welcome feature is the I3T's forward-clicky tailswitch, which allows you to control its two outputs (5 and 180 lumens) from either an overhand or underhand grip instead of the usual twisty interface lights of class come with. The tailswitch also gives you momentary or always-on control for both outputs as needed.

A number of external features also let the I3T bring the AAA form into more modern styles. The first is the helix body knurling that gives it a distinct look (a new design feature of the rest of Olight's new lights) while still providing ample grip for its entire midsection. The light comes with a pocket clip that attaches toward its tail, but allows 3 options of carry thanks to a 2-way design and a built-in lanyard hole. And finally there's the knurled tail and rubber boot switch that, while prevents the I3T from tailstanding, allows for easier operation even while gloved. All-over anodized aluminum gives the light rugged IPX8-rated resistance while still keeping it an EDC-friendly 1.45 ounces.

Gone are the days of AAA lights being keychain backups—Olight proves that size doesn't matter with the I3T's potential as an EDC light. Pick one up today from Amazon at the link below.

BOND Tool Roll

There's nothing worse than having to rummage through a bag to find the gear you need. It's frustrating to say the least, but it happens even to the best of us. That's why it's especially important to keep your gear organized in one place inside your bag. Expanding upon their lineup of EDC pouches and dopp kits, BOND offers a new organization solution with their durable Tool Roll. It's a unique way to keep all your gear protected in one place thanks to its efficient rolling design.

There's quite a lot of organization space built into the Tool Roll's design. It starts with three large pockets, sized just right for passports and small notebooks, as well as your smaller electronics. Then there's nine useful “no-slip” elastic holders that can fit your various pens, flashlights, knives, and cables. At the edge of the Tool Roll there's a YKK-zippered compartment for smaller gear and other valuables. When you're done loading it up, just roll it together and close it with the included aircraft-grade aluminum hook and strap. When it's time to get to work, unrolling the organizer gives you at-a-glance identification of your gear as well as easy access.

And with all that space, it's a good thing that the Tool Roll is built out of hardy 840D nylon. With its double-stitching and bartack construction, you can feel confident filling it with your best gear. The Travel Roll is built to last, and BOND Travel Gear stands by its longevity with a lifetime warranty. No matter what you carry and what you do, you can use the BOND Tool Roll to suit your needs.

Handgrey KIN Titanium Key Hook

When it comes to making the most out of your keychain, it's all about the hook. Most keychain hooks, at best, do their job keeping your essentials close at hand. At worst, they're so poorly designed that they can damage your pockets or belt. For us EDCers, that simply won't do. So Handgrey put their years of experience and successful crowdfunded projects behind them to perfect the keychain hook with their latest product, the KIN. With its efficiency in its simplicity and metal that speaks for itself, the KIN doesn't just enhance your keychain's utility, but it elevates its aesthetic as well.

So how do you dress up something as simple as a hook? Titanium would be a good place to start. The EDCer's favorite metal offers unique properties that make it great for gear meant to be used every day, such as its strength in spite of its flexibility and its heavy resistance while remaining lightweight. That flexibility lends itself well to the functionality of KIN's Grade 5 titanium hook, since it's able to engage and disengage without ever losing its grip.

Handgrey also added a couple of thoughtful touches to the hook itself: a no-contact opening and slightly curved tip that ensures it doesn't rip your pockets to shreds over time, and a wide inner clearance for latching onto thicker objects. Since the hook rides deep, there are grooves on either side of the KIN that give proper purchase when pulling it from its attachment point. The keychain slot itself also shows off Handgrey's precision-cut ornamentation, slow-cut using EDM (electrical discharge machining) for precision even in the smallest spaces. While it doesn't add any functionality, it's something that will make onlookers do a double-take to see just how such tiny cuts are possible.

A simple hook with the right design goes a long way. The Handgrey KIN is already funded nearly six times over, with plenty of time for you to pledge for one of two styles and accessories at the link below.

The James Brand Titanium Knife Collection

When you think about your EDC knife, it's easy to focus on just the blade. But that's only half the equation — the handle and materials also play a huge role. Aluminum handles might seem more tactical while G10 handles fit in an outdoorsy carry for example. In the case of The James Brand family of knives, with its focus on everyday utility blended with modern styling, there's no better fit than titanium. The new Titanium Collection now has a knife in every EDCer's favorite metal, whether you want a keychain option, a classier slipjoint, or a hardworking framelock for your kit.

For their first materials-focused collection, The James Brand dressed up a well-balanced trio of their knives in matte Grade 5 titanium scales. Titanium has amazing physical properties that are perfectly suited for EDC gear: it's uniquely strong yet flexible, light weight, and resistant to corrosion. It also complements the sleek, minimalist silhouettes on these three knives.

If you're looking for day-to-day performance and a solid lock for hard use, the Chapter knife covers your bases. It features a usable 2.8” long, drop point D2 steel blade to tackle most cutting jobs. It deploys quickly via a manual thumb stud and locks up securely into its titanium frame lock. For a dressier, more modern take on a classic pocketknife, there's the County. Its 2.5” Sandvik 12C27 blade requires a two-hand open and doesn't lock, making it a viable EDC in places where large, locking knives or open carry are restricted. Last but not least, the titanium Elko knife can ride on your keychain and handle quick cuts, opening mail, and other smaller tasks thanks to its 1.74” blade and built-in screwdriver/keychain attachment point.

Nitecore TINI Cu

As much as we chase performance and an impressive spec sheet when it comes to our EDC gear, sometimes it's the subtler details that make all the difference. In the case of the Nitecore TINI, a brand new copper build transforms the light into something more substantial. With copper's unique heft, handfeel, and patina, it gives the light a new presence both in hand and on your keychain. It'll only get better the more you use it, and with its 380-lumen output and convenient USB charging, it's a light you'll have for the long haul.

If you're looking for that classy, traditional style in your EDC but don't want to compromise on modern performance and features, the TINI Cu should be on your radar. It has the same CREE XPG-G2 S3 LED, capable of hitting 380 lumens with a peak beam distance of 70 yards on its Turbo mode. Side switches give you instant access to its Turbo mode and also allow you to cycle down to more general EDC modes, including a 145-lumen High, 38-lumen Mid, and a 1-lumen Low.

Its built-in battery reaches 60 hours of runtime, making it an excellent back-up option for your keys. If you choose to use it as your primary light, keeping it charged is easy thanks to its built-in micro-USB port. Handling it often as your main light also has the benefit of creating a unique patina as the copper body oxidizes over time, taking on that beautifully worn look. The original TINI already punched well above its weight. For a new keychain light option in a more exotic material, check out the TINI Cu at the link below.

Kershaw Faultline

At the end of the day, the EDC knife in your pocket is a tool first and foremost. So when you need a solid tool knife for the job, you should reach for something that's built to last and designed to put in hard work. The new Kershaw Faultline delivers the performance and design cues you'd expect from a much larger, beefier knife, but dials in the proportions to make it a comfortable and compact EDC. It has the design and materials that make for a perfect companion to your toolbox with more modern features fit for daily carry as well.

One look at the Faultline's blade should tell you it's a utilitarian knife with a tactical edge. It features 8Cr13MoV steel with a durable black oxide coating to bolster its corrosion resistance. The 3” clip point blade gives plenty of cutting edge while keeping fairly compact. The overall shape handles both slicing and piercing well, while jimping that extends from the tip of the blade down to the back of the spine provides unparalleled grip and blade control, even when you're wearing gloves.

Opening the knife is easy too, thanks to Kershaw's KVT ball bearing system and flipper tab. It flicks open and stays in place via a sturdy, inset liner lock. The handle of the Faultline is made from comfortably contoured glass-filled nylon with a rubber overmold on top. The result is a knife that's easy on the hands and easy to control in all conditions. Learn more about this rugged knife and pick one up for yourself via the link below.

incase Flight Nylon Accessory Organizer

Keeping your pockets full is easy enough, but organizing everything else that goes into your EDC is a daily task in an of itself. And when you throw unwieldy cables and delicate tech into the mix, it doesn't get any easier. Leave it to incase, the experts behind soft goods ranging from laptop sleeves to rolling luggage, to come up with a solution. Their latest Flight Nylon Accessory Organizer delivers the protection and organization you'd want in an EDC pouch with a few features designed especially for gadget enthusiasts.

A tightly woven nylon gives the Accessory Organizer its unassuming yet tough exterior as the first layer of defense from the wear and tear of daily carry. True to its name, this nylon was originally found on military flight jackets and leverages its dirt-, water-, abrasion-, and wear resistance to protect your essentials.

The organizer unzips to open flat like a book, revealing its internal compartments. One side of the organizer features larger slip pockets to fit bulkier items, made with mesh for at-a-glance identification of their contents. On the other side, a larger faux-fur lined zip pocket safely houses your phone or other tech and protects them from scratches. A smaller zip pocket consolidates loose items like SD cards. Elastic webbing of various sizes manages cables, tools, and pens throughout the organizer. Last but not least, a water-resistant zippered compartment on the front of the pouch grants quick access to frequently used essentials, like your keys or a transit card.

At 9.5” x 6” x 2”, this organizer is sized just right to manage gear too big for your pockets. It's versatile enough to organize your general EDC, your mobile office accessories, or toiletries and travel essentials. Toss it in your pack and pair it with a matching laptop case to have all your most valuable gear covered. Check them out at the link below.

Massdrop x Intern Weatherproof Modular Carry Pouches

When it comes to EDC, a “heavy duty” bag doesn't necessarily have to weigh a ton. When you combine the right materials, hardware, and design, you can get a lot of the same performance you'd expect from a much heavier bag. But the real challenge is execution: it's a complex and expensive manufacturing process to achieve a high performance, ultralight bag. If there's anyone who's up to the challenge, it's the Vancouver-based, up-and-coming technical apparel designer who goes by the Techwear Intern. He's proven his design chops by creating a new piece of gear—ranging from innovative bags to first-of-its-kind jackets—every day for 30 days straight. By partnering with Massdrop, he's combining his technical knowhow with high-performance materials to bring you a modular carry pouch system at a price that's hard to beat.

This first release comes as an entire set of pouches collectively dubbed the Modular Adaptive Carry System (MACS). The biggest benefit of a modular system like this is how you can get your setup totally dialed for your exact needs, even as they change. The MACS comes in two types of pouches: the larger Carry Packits and smaller Center-Zip Pockets. The Packits are essentially single-cavity zippered stuff sacks (available in sizes from small to X-Large) ideal for larger, bulkier items. The accompanying Zip Pockets more closely resemble a pencil pouch, useful for quick access or consolidating small, loose essentials. They can be mounted together as a more complete bag option, separated for bag-in-bag packing, or used alone, thanks to the myriad of attachment options available: velcro, MOLLE, G-Hooks, C-Hooks, and integrated carry handles. This sort of versatility is especially valuable when you need to pack differently for various settings: urban EDC, outdoor, travel, school/work, and more.

No matter what you're doing, the MACS features materials that are durable enough and light enough to go anywhere. They feature a fully waterproof and impressively lightweight X-Pac laminated ripstop fabric that's made in the USA for durability and all-round protection. The zippers are also made in the USA and boast extreme water resistance to further keep your gear dry. Even the buckles and hardware use a proprietary thermoplastic polymer that retains strength and stability when exposed to various conditions. By opting for all these lightweight materials, bulk and fatigue under load are non-issues. It's especially crucial for a modular setup that can end up being fairly expansive.

Whether you're looking for a messenger bag, a gear organizer, an ultralight travel belt, or anything in between, Massdrop and the Intern probably have a combination for you in this first drop. The best part is it won't set you back too much either, thanks to Massdrop's production help. Check it out in full detail at the link below and secure your MACS setup before the drop ends July 12th, with options starting at under $20.

Nitecore NTP20 Tactical Pen

When you want to carry a truly tactical pen, it should be one that excels at both writing and self-defense tasks. But too often, what we get focuses on one task over the other. You might find something closer to a kubotan that can sort of scribble something down, or decent jotters that are tactical in aesthetics only. Nitecore's new NTP20 tactical pen aims to strike the perfect balance. Their updated pen design gives you a versatile writing tool that fits your everyday needs while giving you the edge you need to defend yourself or get out of an emergency situation.

As a pen, the NTP20 is quite versatile. It's compatible with eight different ink refills, from Parker to Schneider as well as Apex and Senator cartridges. This gives you a wide range of inks and ink styles to choose from, letting you set up the NTP20 to write the way you want it. The body of the pen is made out of a premium titanium alloy which also helps keep the pen light in hand and in pocket weighing only 1.33 ounces. And at six inches long, it's not too big to carry around.  It even has a streamlined clip at the top to aid in pocket carry, with a ceramic ball underneath that makes for a smooth draw that doesn't catch upon your clothing.

The lightness of the pen makes it easy to write with as well, and the grip areas channeled into the body also help you keep your hands on it. Those same grip surfaces help the NTP20 perform its tactical functions. The shape of the pen and its added length give added leverage during defensive use, while its ultra-hard tungsten tip can break glass in an emergency situation.

The attractive styling of the Nitecore NTP20 draws less attention to its tactical applications when you're writing with it or carrying it, making it easier to EDC as well. Grab one for your loadout at the link below.

Prometheus Preon P1 MkIII Flashlight

When you put together manufacturing prowess, over a decade of experience in pioneering flashlights, and the latest in flashlight tech, you're bound to get something special. And it's hard to describe the Preon P1 MkIII as anything but, with all the history behind it. Born out of the partnership of Prometheus Lights and Foursevens, the Preon represents a quality tool that only makers of their caliber can produce. Needless to say, it's one of the most refined AAA lights you can buy today.

The Preon P1 MkIII's exterior is a subtle fusion of both companies' design languages. On first glance you see the familiar Foursevens Preon, with its machined ridges and tapered middle barrel to accommodate your preferred grip method. Then there's the Prometheus screw-in titanium clip: a clip so good it sells on its own for other flashlights. Finally there's the materials the Preon comes in: Electroless Nickel plating and CR3 (Tri-Chrome) + PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating over 6061-T6 aluminum, both technical solutions Prometheus have used to give their lights a unique total coating that doesn't mess with the light's rear click switch operation.

In spite of its looks, the Preon P1 MkIII isn't meant to be just pocket candy. It comes with the latest and greatest Nichia 219C LED, rated at 92+ CRI (Color Rendering Index) for the closest approximation to natural light you can currently get. It also allows for a higher current than its 219B predecessor, meaning it can more efficiently produce and hold its 100-lumen output. The Preon also comes with a programmable user interface, letting you pick from 6 configurations that make use of its 7 modes. An included NiMH AAA battery also gives the light a stable and rechargeable power source so you aren't wasting disposable batteries on your light (or harming it in the worst case).

While the Preon P1 MkIII marks the first steps of Prometheus and Foursevens, it's clear that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and shows the clear influence and experience of both its creators.
