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.

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.

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.

Buck 841 Sprint Pro

Buck 841 Sprint Pro

Buck is one of the most revered manufacturers of classic gent’s pocketknives, and they have decades of experience under their belt. But if you’re in the market for a more modern everyday carry blade, there’s a chance you’ve overlooked Buck entirely. Though many of their classic designs have stuck to the formula, their catalog has plenty more to offer. Take a look at their new 841 Spring Pro, for example. It’s a modern gent’s folding flipper blade design that features a smooth action, smart looks, and modern premium materials, giving it the chops to compete against contemporary competition.

Where the traditional Buck knife requires two hands to open, the new Sprint Pro can be opened quickly one-handed via the flipper tab in the handle’s spine. Buck also put ball bearings in the pivot to reduce friction, rapidly helping you get that blade open and ready. The Sprint Pro comes with a 3.12“ S30V stainless steel blade that has an impressive Rockwell hardness value of 59-61. That means that this premium steel can hold a sharper edge and keep working well beyond where old-time knives need to be sharpening. With a shape that’s a hybrid between a clip- and drop-point blade, the Sprint Pro has a strong tip for piercing and fine detail work, but it also has a saber-ground edge with a slight belly that makes it a good knife for utility tasks too.

Another modern touch found on the Sprint Pro is the beautiful marbled carbon fiber scaling found on the handles, with its distinctive red contrast point at the pivot. The carbon fiber construction isn’t just for looks, however: it helps make the knife light in your pockets, weighing in at 3.4 ounces in total. And compared to knives made out of more traditional wood and brass, the carbon fiber handles on the Spring Pro will stand up to rougher impacts and damper conditions in general.  When you’re done with the Sprint Pro, you can fold it up and make it disappear into your pockets with the removable deep carry pocket clip, no belt holster required. And where a traditional Buck knife makes you change your grip and use both hands to close the knife with a lockback mechanism, the Sprint Pro has a more modern liner lock system that holds the blade in place while being easier to operate at the same time.

The 841 Sprint Pro shows that Buck can deliver a great modern gent’s experience that leverages their expertise, while still providing the ergonomics and quality materials that modern EDC users like you demand. It’s a knife that deserves your attention, so check it out and pick one up at the link below.
