3 US-Made Essentials to Level Up Your EDC

3 US-Made Essentials to Level Up Your EDC

In an emergency situation, access to two types of light are essential: a flashlight to see you through when the sun goes down, and fire for the most dire survival scenarios. But to truly be prepared for the situation at hand, you'll need quick access to both options, including a solid grip on your light, plenty of extra batteries nearby, and ensuring you have fire when you need it most. In the dark, the last thing you'll want is to drop your light or have to rummage through your pack for fresh batteries, and a dried up lighter is dead weight.

That's why Thyrm designed their products to give your emergency setup that extra edge when it matters most. Their CellVault battery cases make it much easier to carry spare batteries, SwitchBack flashlight rings grant fast, secure access to your EDC light, and their PyroVault ensures your favorite lighter always has fuel in the tank. All of their products are made in the USA from premium high-impact plastics with some thoughtful design that easily integrates and matches your EDC.

Trending: Spyderco Squeak

Trending: Spyderco Squeak

Slicer Saturday sees the second trending appearance of Spyderco's non-locking slipjoint folder, the Squeak. This nifty little knife brings no-frills utility to any EDC where locking knives aren't an option, making this knife popular in the UK and similar locales. In such a minimalist design, the star of the show is the Squeak's signature leaf-shaped blade. Measuring a modest 2" long and made from N690Co steel, the blade leverages its leaf-shaped geometry to maximize its usable cutting surface for general utility tasks. Although the knife doesn't lock for extremely tough tasks, it does feature a finger choil and jimping at the spine of the blade for a firm grip. Lightweight FRN handles add to that grip, while a Spyderco wire clip makes carrying it easy. For a classic Spyderco experience that you can carry almost anywhere, check out the Squeak at the link below.

Clip & Carry Kydex Sheaths

Multi-tools have found their way into the daily carry of a lot of EDCers, and beyond the black leather or nylon carry cases they usually come with, a few tougher, more convenient and more colorful options are now available for EDC. These new Kydex sheaths are made by Clip & Carry, a new sister brand of EDC and rescue tool manufacturer StatGear. The material itself is known for its rigidity, low flammability, and water and abrasion resistance. They are made in the U.S.A. by a military veteran and are guaranteed for life, ensuring the protection of the tools you rely on every day.

The sheaths feature adjustable retention that allows you to tune just how tight they hold on to your multi-tool and how easy they are to deploy—go tight for the rough and tumble days, and a little looser for the working days where they’ll get a lot more action. Most models include a heavy duty belt clip, while the smaller ones—such as the one for the Leatherman Squirt or the Gerber Dime—allow for keyring attachment, giving the  tools more protection from scratches and damage rather than dangling them unsheathed with your keys.

Currently, Clip & Carry has designs custom fit to popular multi-tools, including the Gerber Dime, Suspension, and Suspension NXT, as well as the Leatherman Squirt, Wingman, Sidekick, FREE P2/P4, and Wave/Wave+ models. Each model comes in a variety of colors and finishes to match the rest of your EDC, including plain black Kydex, black natural carbon weave, coyote brown carbon fiber, and even some eye-catching colors like red or safety orange carbon fiber. New designs and colors are added every few weeks, so your favorite tool won’t be left out for long.

If you are looking for a convenient way to EDC your favorite multi-tool in a durable material that comes in a variety of colors, check out the Kydex sheaths from Clip & Carry. As a bonus for Everyday Carry readers, you can use promo code EDC15 for 15% off your order along with free shipping at the link below.

Ghostly x RPMFG Dyneema Backpack

Ghostly x RPMFG Dyneema Backpack

As far as carry capacity goes, it's hard to beat a classic daypack. But for all those times you need a little more storage space than your pockets provide, and you don't want to weigh yourself down with a bulky backpack, your options are fairly limited. 

Hikers and ultralight backpackers have a secret weapon against this conundrum: Dyneema composite fabric, also known as Cuben Fiber. The fabric is durable, waterproof, and ultralight. It's the foundation of this collaboration backpack from Ghostly x RPMFG's Ryan Perkins, combined with a well-proportioned and thoughtfully organized design that makes it just right for a high-capacity, low-weight EDC. 

It's more compact than most daypacks at just 12L, but it also wears like it's barely there thanks to its 10.5oz weight. A roll-top design provides waterproofness and expandability if you need to carry more, while a sealed zippered front pocket grants quick access to gear you need in a pinch. And unlike other ultra minimalist packs, the Ghostly x RPMFG Dyneema Backpack features two internal drop pockets for essentials like a tablet or a 15" laptop. 

Finally, details like a German AustriAlpin COBRA buckle, 3D spacer mesh back panel, and made-in-USA construction round out the bag's premium features. If you've been looking for a durable, low-profile, ultralight backpack with functional organization and thoughtful details, don't miss the Ghostly x RPMFG Dyneema Backpack available at the link below.

Skeletonized 1095 carbon steel construction and a 2.63" flat ground blade make it a valuable lightweight addition to any survival kit. These handles even allow plenty of options for your choice of custom scales, from Micarta to paracord and everything in between. A black molded polymer sheath completes the package and offers you options for either neck or lanyard carry. And with 6 colorways to choose from, there's an Izula to perfectly fit your survival or outdoors EDC.
