Rogue Industries Front Pocket Wallet

With all their varied shapes and sizes, sometimes getting all our gear, accessories, and apparel to work well together is an exercise in forcing a square peg down a round hole. Take wallets, for example, where the common rectangular shape is meant to fit a rectangular pocket, and for many pants—especially the front pocket of jeans—the shape doesn’t quite line up. To solve this square wallet, round pocket dilemma, Rogue Industries produced and patented their Front Pocket Wallet. With its unique shape, premium materials, and US-made construction, the wallet provides a sleek and comfortable option for your everyday essentials.

A smooth, rounded edge gives the Rogue Front Pocket its distinct form factor. The design allows the wallet to sit flush against the rounded contour of its namesake, your front pants pocket. The shape, paired with a 0.25“ thickness, gives it a slim and discreet profile, minimizing bulge while maximizing its utility. It’s compact at 5” x 3.4“ and lightweight at only 1.6 ounces, making it a solid EDC option.

You have the option of two designs for your Front Pocket: 6 slots that can hold up to 12 cards, or 3 slots that hold 6 cards along with an ID window on the right panel, with the billfold and stash pocket up top. Either option can be made from your choice of American Bison or Moose Leather. Wallets from the Bison and Moose collections in particular are made in Maine, USA, to boot. Both materials have exceptional durability that will develop a patina unique to its user over time, with the added bonus of RFID protection.

The Rogue Industries Front Pocket Wallet’s thoughtful design, robust fit and finish, and craftsmanship gives you a sound everyday option that solves a common everyday conundrum. Build your perfect Front Pocket Wallet in your choice of style, material, and initial customization at Rogue Industries’ site at the link below, with a special offer of 15% off your order with code EDC15.

Trending: Vanquest FTIM Gen 2 Maximizer

Saturday Storage means we take a look at trending gear that makes packing and organizing your EDC that much easier. For a lot of EDCers, that means a specialized pouch. Compact, organized, and easy to carry, purpose-built pouches solve all of your carry needs. Vanquest takes the EDC pouch further with their FTIM Gen 2 Maximizer. With a unique pull-down opening system to make it as fast as possible to get to your gear, it's an ultra-rugged and extra-organized way to manage your everyday kit. Unlike most half- or clamshell-opening pouches, the FTIM's main compartment is more akin to a dopp kit, with a U-shaped zipper to lay out its contents wide open. This YKK#8 zipper is lockable and comes with Spartan zipper pulls, a combination designed to make opening as fast and as smooth as possible. One external pocket, two internal ones, and a detachable 2-position key fob space round out the pouch's organization. Stop stuffing your pockets with loose essentials and get organized with a robust EDC pouch like the Vanquest FTIM instead, available in three colors at the link below.

Helikon-Tex Bail Out Bag

Helikon-Tex Bail Out Bag

When you’re prepping for the worst it’s a bit too easy to go overboard. The whole point of a bail out bag for EDC is to have the essentials on hand, not to take literally everything you could possibly need. Big bags filled with everything including the kitchen sink are too large and ungainly for rapid movement, and they also make you stand out as a target when things get desperate. That’s where the Helikon-Tex Bail Out Bag comes in handy: it’s purpose-built for low-profile EDC of the things you need to get through to safety in a bad situation.

The Helikon-Tex Bail Out Bag features a low-profile 25 liter capacity design that forces you to pare down to what you actually need in an emergency. Its YKK-zippered flat opening allows complete access to the interior, making packing and unpacking your survival gear a simple task. The suspension system built into the mesh back of the bag and the shoulder straps make carrying your gear long term less of a burden than with other bags. What’s unique about its design is its ability to transform from a backpack profile to a wide open attachment platform, customizable with a with a MOLLE/PALS-compatible interior panel along with a mesh pockets to segregate and organize your essentials. A large top handle lets you get a handle on the bag for quick movement without needing to put it on or zip it up again as a backpack, and if you find yourself in a vehicle, the bag itself transforms into a seat-back organizer for your essentials.

The tough tactical Cordura nylon material used in the bag helps it keep up with rough use, but to the untrained eye the bag doesn’t look like a traditional tactical bag at all. It lacks the telltale MOLLE-/PALS-compatible webbing found on the exterior of other bags (leaving it on the inside), and that lets you keep a more discreet profile especially in an urban environment. That subtle design also pairs well with the complementary beavertail satchel that attaches to the bag. Able to be used on its own, it’s a dedicated concealed carry bag that lets you carry the compact firearm of your choice along with extra magazines without sticking out like a sore thumb. Finally, an included padded seating mat attaches itself to the interior of the bag, always ready to make resting on rough terrain more comfortable.

And even if you’re not planning for the worst when looking for a new everyday carry bag, the low profile nature of the Helikon-Tex Bail Out Bag makes it well-suited for urban EDC. Check it out and pick out one of its six different colorways at the link below.

For Flashlight Friday, we take a look at the best way to store and protect your favorite power source. Thyrm's CellVault battery cases are specifically designed to carry a range of the most common battery types found in EDC lights. The standard version fits either four AAAs, two AAs, or three CR123s. The XL version can pack in 2 18650s, up to six CR123s, 8 AAAs, or 4 AAs. You can mix and match the battery types to accommodate different lights and gear you’re carrying. Inside the XL you’ll find a divider that keeps your batteries from knocking into each other. Both cases can attach to MOLLE straps on the outside of a bag for quicker access. Despite its name, the CellVault is great for carrying small EDC items other than batteries. Since they’re waterproof, they make an ideal home for a small survival kit, lighter, matches, and anything else that you want to keep both dry and quick to grab. They’re available in a variety of colors commonly used on tactical bags and gear, so check them out at the link below.
