Trending: LÜM-TEC Abyss 400M-3

With a design that traces its roots to their extra-large, 48mm, diver-centric 600M series, LÜM-TEC’s Abyss 400M-3 is a more compact and wearable version of the brand’s take-anywhere watch. This particular colorway, featuring a black face with a brown vintage-stitched leather strap, is a limited edition of 100 numbered pieces. Distinct looks and rugged functionality gives it a well-deserved spot on this week’s Watch Wednesday.

The watch features a bold design with prominent Arabic numerals and half-lumed cut-out hands contrasted on a matte black CNC-cut dial, protected by a sapphire crystal with a double anti-reflective coating. A large screw-lock crown and a 22mm-wide strap enhance wrist presence, while a subdued titanium carbide bead-blasted coating and a simple date window manage not to detract from the bold aesthetic.

Form follows function though, as the 316L marine-grade stainless steel case with an extra-large screw-lock crown allows you to take this watch down to depths of up to 400 meters. Inside the 42mm case beats a reliable Japanese Miyota 9015 caliber which features a hand-winding and hacking automatic movement. The use of MDV (“Maximum Darkness Visibility”) Technology—a multi-layer application of Super-LumiNova—on the hands and indices ensures legibility wherever you may take it. Check out the watch able to live up to its nickname at the link below.

Mission Critical System 01 Baby Carrier

Preparing for and equipping yourself for the daily tasks and trials life throws your way is the very purpose of EDC. That said, some essentials need extra special care. It’s one thing to carry tools for handling quick fixes or chores, but packing and caring for your loved ones—especially the little ones—is a whole other undertaking entirely. After all, there’s no mission more critical than the safety and protection of your family, and that's where Mission Critical comes in. Mission Critical is here to help with their baby carrier and product line designed from the ground up for dads. With a collection of intuitively designed baby carriers, integrated bags, and pouches, they'll help you prepare for any parenting adventure.

Taking cues from robust, mil-spec bags, Mission Critical’s flagship System 01 Baby Carrier (S.01) comes with the fit, finish, and features of your favorite tactical backpack. From 1000D nylon construction to MOLLE-compatible webbing, this carrier means business. The carrier itself is designed to fit babies from approximately 8-35 pounds with your baby facing either inward or outward depending on their stage of development. Its simple design allows dad to put it on and secure baby in 4 simple steps. Features include a removable and washable liner for any surprises and a stowable sun shade for extended days out. The S.01 fits like a vest so the weight is mostly on the shoulders where it’s most comfortable for dad.

One of the S.01’s standout features is its MOLLE system on the front and back of the carrier, allowing full customization and expansion. The back panel seamlessly integrates with Mission Critical’s Daypack Zip, a 24L backpack that, when loaded, creates an evenly balanced load front to back. It carries all your parenting essentials along with an easily accessible magnetic changing pad, stowable padded shoulder straps, and an insulated pocket for bottles, in addition to internal organization.

Mission Critical also makes multiple backpacks, bags, and a messenger-style diaper bag all designed with the same fit, finish, and compatibility with the S.01. Unique features include the Diaper Bag with easy top access and a magnetic buckle, the large 27L backpack with an integrated sleeve for your laptop, and the Rolltop Backpack offering a more secure main compartment while still designed as a convenient travel partner. The entire product line is available in 3 colors: Coyote, Black, and Gray, allowing you to mix and match with your existing gear. And of course, all of Mission Critical’s products with MOLLE webbing are compatible with their expansion packs and pouches, as well as ones you may already own in your EDC.

Mission Critical’s S.01 Baby Carrier is built from the ground up to help you be the best (and most prepared) dad ever.

Trending: Luminox Navy SEAL

The Luminox Navy SEAL is the watch that put the brand on the map since its introduction in 1994. Due to its association with the legendary special forces and exceptional build quality and details, it's stood the test of time and continues to be a popular choice for both servicemen/women and everyday watch enthusiasts alike. And there's plenty to like in today's Timepiece Tuesday feature. The beefy 43mm CARBONOX case comes with a Swiss-made quartz movement with a date window at the 3 o'clock position and a field watch dial design. A double-security gasket on the crown helps ensure internal integrity, giving the Navy SEAL up to 200 meters of water resistance. But the watch's killer feature becomes more apparent as the lights go out: specially developed Night Vision Tubes (borosilicate glass capsules) give the dial illumination--25 years' worth of continuous, self-powering light--on critical parts like the hands, hour markers, and bezel, making sure that crucial timekeeping information is always available at a glance. Check out the Luminox Navy SEAL at the link below.

CIVIVI Chronic

CIVIVI Chronic

If you’re looking for a clean and functional knife to kick off the new year, the CIVIVI Chronic is a great way to start. It features a flipper blade built into a clean and minimal handle whose aesthetics are matched by its practicality in use. The Chronic has all the bells and whistles of a more expensive everyday carry knife for a fraction of the cost, and it deserves your attention.

The most striking part of the Chronic is the razor-sharp 3.22" clip point blade. Its hollow grind and 9Cr18MoV stainless steel composition make for a sharp 58-60 HRC knife that’seasy to maintain, especially on a nice whetstone. Deployment of the blade is easy, with an ambidextrous flipper index tab and ball bearings in the pivot that allow a smooth, one-handed action. A secure liner lock holds the blade in place during use.

The handle on the Chronic is nice and clean, with a reversible tip-up deep-carry pocket clip that lets it slide right out of sight in your pockets. But unlike other minimal knives that have slippery smooth metal handles, the Chronic features grippy but not overly tactical G10 scaling that allows for finer control especially if your hands are wet.

With such a rich feature set and clean aesthetic styling, you might expect to pay a pretty penny for a knife like this, but CIVIVI placed the Chronic at an accessible price point, making this a great knife to pick whether you’re new to EDC or just looking for something new this year. Go ahead and take a look at the finer details the CIVIVI Chronic has to offer and buy one for yourself today at the link below.
