PRIM Modular Urban Bags

Adapting to what you need at any particular moment is a quality of any solid EDC, and it’s why multi-tools are so popular. But EDC isn't just about what you carry, it's about how you do it too—and finding a similar level of adaptability in a single bag that's still suitable for daily carry is a tall order. That's why the team at Creatio Design went with a divide and conquer approach when building out their PRIM bag system. Rather than having a single, bulky bag that forces you to carry your gear in one particular way, they've developed a modular system constructed from tactical performance materials with a “less is more” philosophy to let you carry only what you need, when you need it. The collection of three swappable bags can mix-and-match to hit the sweetspot of capacity and portability your carry needs, while their robust internal organization consolidates everything in a streamlined way.

If you find yourself constantly emptying and repacking your bag every time you leave the house, then the PRIM line of bags might be for you. The low-key, all-black design is perfect for the urban commuter, and the tough build should hold up to your morning commute with no problem. Forgetting your umbrella in a rainstorm isn't the end of your gadgets either thanks to the water resistant Cordura 500D exterior and watertight YKK zippers that keep the contents of your bag dry. Plus, the ergonomic backload system curves to the shape of your back and has a few nifty features of its own. Take the breathable padding which helps you avoid a sweaty back during long days, or the hidden RFID pocket which provides added security in unfamiliar places. Then there's how many different ways you can carry your gear. Whether you want to carry a traditional backpack, something smaller with a chest rig, or something more ergonomic with their sling configuration, these bags can handle it all.

The versatility doesn’t end with how you carry either. All the bags take inspiration from military-style modularity while remaining true to the company’s less is more beliefs. You won’t have any issues with internal organization thanks to mesh pockets and plenty of compartments, and the outside is MOLLE compatible for even more customization. The entire line consists of five different bags that you can mix and match depending on your needs. The base models are the Y13 or Y15 bags, and they vary only in size depending on whether your laptop is 13” or 15”. The next size down is the X11 and XS11 pouches which are handy on their own, but become something special when you consider how they can be quickly mounted to the base pack. One pouch that holds your tablet and a few charging cables throughout the week can be easily swapped after work for another that holds some toiletries and travel essentials for a quick weekend away. The last is the belt/leg pack, which is perfect for when pockets aren’t enough and you just need to hold a few extra items without carrying an entire bag all day. It can also be worn as a mini sling bag as a convenient, minimalist option for when you're traveling light.

If you’re tired of lugging around large bags for just a few extra items, the PRIM collection might be for you. It helps streamline your gear into your most-used kits for a more grab-and-go approach to EDC. For a closer look at the campaign make sure to click the link below.

Maxpedition Entity Large Crossbody Bag

Maxpedition Entity Large Crossbody Bag

Whether you've built out a tactical EDC or just want the best essentials to get you through the day, it doesn't hurt to be prepared. Maxpedition have established their reputation in the EDC scene with their tactical-ready bags and pouches, but more recently they've offered more discreetly styled options for urban EDC. Their recent Entity series blurs the line between tactical features and non-tactical aesthetics, resulting in high performance bags that keep a low profile. The Entity Large Crossbody Bag brings this design concept to a sleek and quick sling silhouette fitted with the materials, modularity, and attention to detail you'd want in a daily work or EDC bag.

While the Entity Crossbody Bag might look non-descript at first glance, it's all by design. Neutral grey hues like Ash and Charcoal and an overall uncluttered exterior let the bag hide in plain sight. It's made from a durable yet lightweight blend of 500D nylon and polyester with a heathered texture and finish. The bag features a triple coating of polyurethane to keep things clean and dry when facing the unexpected conditions of travel and urban commuting. The bag offers a comfortable carry experience on either shoulder thanks to an adjustable strap made of smooth reinforced seatbelt webbing, a removable shoulder pad, and closed cell foam padding. For quick and quiet operation, Maxpedition uses Duralite Xlite nylon release buckles throughout.

With its 14-liter capacity, the bag can accommodate a laptop, tablet, plus a lighter load of your workday essentials. YKK zippers fitted with Maxpedition's Positive Grip Pulls grant easy access and one-finger operation, even while gloved, to the main compartment of the bag. It opens fully for at-a-glance loading and retrieval or can be held in place by detachable drawbridge straps for added security and structure. Inside, two side pockets help you organize your gear while a sleeve in the rear keeps your tablet or other flat items such as a notebook tucked away. Opposite the sleeve is a mesh pocket perfect for pens, a pocket flashlight, and even a small power bank. Directly below that is a hook-and-loop surface for mounting your own modular gear and accessories. A second lockable, hook-and-loop-lined rear compartment doubles as either CCW or laptop storage. Finally, a zippered side pocket with a silencing garage and a shock-cord water bottle pocket round out the bag's compartments.

The Maxpedition Entity Crossbody Bag is an excellent example of Maxpedition's ability to blend both tactical performance and practical usability in an everyday bag design. It also shows that attention to small details, from the materials to the mechanical design of its panels and even its zippers, create a product that easily crosses over from military or prepared citizen use to daily commuter or work carry.

BOLDR Supply Co. Venture Field Watch

If you check what's on an EDCer's wrist, there's a good chance it'll be a field watch. This style is especially popular among the everyday carry crowd, and for good reason: field watches are simple, durable, reliable, and just plain work. BOLDR Supply Co. put their own unique spin on the classic field watch with their new “Venture” model. Designed to be a near-unbreakable watch, the Venture outfits a tried-and-true military design with a light and rugged titanium case. The rest of its specs are set to impress too, especially for a watch that'll run you less than $150. To sweeten the deal, Everyday Carry readers can save an additional 15% with an exclusive promo code.

Typically, you don’t get as much utility out of a budget watch in terms of both features and materials. That isn't the case with the Venture as it forgoes the cheaper, commonly used brass or steel cases for a solid, aerospace-grade titanium build. The result is a lightweight and durable watch that can take a beating. A modern (and more interesting) case design really makes the watch stand out from other field watches. For example, the lugs sport some interesting angularity that brings a rugged, industrial look to the otherwise softened edges of the round case. The well-balanced proportions tie everything together visually, with the watch measuring in at a versatile 38mm case diameter, 45mm lug-to-lug width, and a low profile 11mm height.

Inside the watch, there’s a reliable Swiss-made ETA Quartz movement with up to three years of battery life. The Venture continues to punch above its price range with a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating for optimal legibility. Its uncluttered dial is easy to read in low-light conditions as well, thanks to a generous application of luminous paint to the hands and hour markers. Throughout your adventures, you’ll appreciate the ample 100m of water resistance, and durable nylon strap, complete with matching titanium hardware.

The Venture is available in two attractive finishes. You can snag the watch in a brushed matte titanium or a Jet Black version with DLC coating. If you want to add one to your collection, there’s no better time than now. You can save 15% off your order by entering the code “BOLDRXEDC” at checkout at the link below.

JETBeam JET-RRT01 2019

JETBeam JET-RRT01 2019

Between clicky switches and electronic switches and twist interfaces and even bolt-action activation, there are plenty of ways to fire up your favorite flashlight. But one thing unfortunately missing from that list is the underrated rotary interface. Usually paired with an infinitely ramping brightness feature, a rotary interface for a flashlight means you can literally dial in the brightness you need for whatever task is at hand. And while there have been rotary lights available off and on over the years, they’ve been an elusive beast—until today. JETBeam reissues their RRT01 flashlight for 2019, bringing with it the versatile rotary interface that’s backed up by equally versatile features. It’s a modern rotary light designed to be infinitely useful for the next generation of EDCers.

Part of the appeal of a rotary interface is its simplicity, which is also true for the JET-RRT01. Its entire operation is centered around its stainless steel magnetic control ring. It starts from off, then twisting it clockwise makes it pass through a series of detents to activate “on” and “High,” with hidden modes like Strobe and SOS accessible via quick twists past these detents. But the main focus of the light is that once you pass that first detent, it’s an infinite number of brightness levels from 1-950 claimed lumens with an RCR123A battery, which means it’s the perfect brightness for your needs at any time, without having to pass through a convoluted interface to get there. Inside the JET-RRT01 is a Cree XP-L HI that’s compatible with both the included (and rechargeable!) 16340 cell that comes with it, as well as 18350 and the aforementioned RCR123A rechargeable batteries. Runtime with an RCR123A is ~25 minutes when on the highest 950-lumen brightness, and 80 hours at 1 lumen.

With an anodized aluminum construction and palm-sized 3.2“ length, the JET-RRT01 is sized right for EDC. A flat tail—with notches for tritium vials, no less—allows tailstanding for candle operation, while a skeletonized clip allows easy pocket or lanyard carry, and doubles as an anti-roll deterrent when the light is on a surface. The recessed battery tube is knurled for grip and purchase during operation, sealing off its battery compartment with an o-ring and secure, square threads that contribute to its IPX8-rated resistance.

If you’ve never tried a rotary interface before on your flashlights, then the JETBeam JET-RRT01 is the perfect place to test the waters. Between its couldn’t-be-simpler operation, power options, and usage versatility, it’s one of the most compelling EDC lights on the market for you to try. Pick one up from the Amazon link below.
