Ridge Bolt Action Pen

Ridge Bolt Action Pen

No matter what your profession might be or what your daily tasks are for the day, adding a pen to your EDC is an easy way to step up your utility. By themselves pens are already useful for jotting down information and ideas, but features like sturdy construction and premium materials is an added bonus on top. Ridge’s new Bolt Action Pen ticks all these boxes and more, and features high-quality construction, a fun deployment mechanism, and a smooth writing experience fit for every EDC.

You get to choose between two resilient materials for Ridge’s Bolt Action Pen: durable 6061 aluminum for a lighter option on both your pocket and your wallet, and titanium for a premium and collectible alternative. Regardless of the material you choose, the Ridge Bolt Action Pen was designed with balance in mind: the weight of all its components have been evenly distributed throughout the pen for a more comfortable writing experience.

Another point of interest is the deployment mechanism. It features an L-shaped bolt action deployment which reduces the chances of accidental activation inside your pockets. The bolt-action mechanism also serves for a fun fidgeting experience for folks with busy hands, or as a focal point to help you concentrate if you’re easily distracted.

Activating the bolt deploys the pen’s pressurized ballpoint refill. This unique refill helps lay down lines no matter the working conditions. It lets you write on wet paper, dirty surfaces, or even really low or high temperatures. A knurled textured grip section towards the tip helps you even further with grip in rough conditions.

Finally, when it comes to everyday carry, the Bolt Action Pen features a manganese spring steel clip. Couple that with the pen’s 5.3“ length and you have a pocketable and robust writing tool always within reach. Check it out in its two versions at the link below.

Urban EDC Supply Premium EDC Kit

When you’re just starting out in the world of everyday carry, the sheer number of choices for gear at your disposal can be very overwhelming. It’s far too easy to get lost in the weeds spending hours and even days researching the best gear to add to your collection. That’s where our friends at Urban EDC Supply come in, providing a curated set of great gear to use as the starting point for your own well-considered EDC collection. And even if you’ve got some gear of your own already as a veteran, their attention to detail and smart choices make for compelling options to shake things up for your carry this year.

Urban EDC Supply Vitesse ROCKIT & Leather Slip

It all starts with Urban EDC’s stylish pocket-sized everyday carry knife. The Vitesse ROCKIT is a slim everyday carry fixed blade knife that’s made out of super-premium ELMAX stainless steel which offers incredible hardness and edge retention, and the scalpel shape makes it really great for everyday utility tasks. With the kind of performance ELMAX steel provides, you’ll be able to perform all of your cutting and slicing tasks with ease. To aid in the process of eventually having to sharpen this knife, the knife features a pronounced choil that makes maintaining the edge on a traditional whetstone an easy task to accomplish. The knife also weighs just a single ounce in your pockets which is far less than many folding knives out there, and comes with an elegant leather slipcase for storage when not in use.

Urban EDC Organizer Hybrid

When you start out in EDC it can be a little annoying having a bunch of gear loose in your pockets scratching against each other and even poking you from all the wrong angles. That’s where having a good leather organizer caddy can come in handy, like Urban EDC’s Organizer Hybrid. Aside from acting as a slim minimalist wallet, the Organizer Hybrid contains organizational space for your slim EDC essentials like pens and small knives. And it does all that while being made out of domestically-sourced, saddle stitched Horween leather that’s full-grain and designed to develop an attractive patina over time.

ReyLight Pineapple Flashlight Brass V4

One of the best things about brass gear is that it develops character over time, but the fact that this ReyLight Pineapple EDC flashlight has the specs to go along with it makes it a great choice for everyday carry on its own. It gets its name from the unique knurling pattern on its brass body, and at its heart is your choice between a high-CRI Nichia 219C or high-output XPL LED emitter. Both are powered by a single li-ion 14500 battery, and in a pinch you can also light things up with a standard AA battery that’s easy to find in an emergency situation. With the right cell you can get up to 470 lumens max out the front, but you can also dial things down to a minimal 0.2 Moonlight mode that will keep running for up to 20 days.

Trending: Leatherman Micra

Trending: Leatherman Micra

First introduced in 1996, the Leatherman Micra finds its way trending back up the charts. Despite its age the Micra still holds up today as an invaluable keychain tool thanks to its useful complement of tools, scissors-based butterfly design, and sturdy construction all in a compact package. 

Most other butterfly-style multi-tools sized for your keychain feature a set of pliers as their main tool, but not everyone can get much use out of pliers at that size. Scissors, however, come in handy for all sorts of daily cutting tasks in a more discreet way than pulling out your dedicated EDC blade. With that said, the Micra still comes equipped with a small penknife, a nail file and cleaning tool, screwdrivers, a bottle opener, a ruler, and even a set of tweezers. 

And like all Leatherman tools, the Micra is made in the USA and backed by a 25-year limited lifetime warranty. Grab one in your favorite of 6 color options at the link below.

Aer x Ministry of Supply Lunar Pack

Aer x Ministry of Supply Lunar Pack

The story and purpose for gear can come from the most interesting places. In the case of Aer’s latest backpack, the Lunar Pack—it meant looking up to the stars. This collaboration with fashion and style brand Ministry of Supply takes inspiration from the PLSS (Primary Life Support System) of a NASA space suit, and similar to the system it’s based on, the Lunar Pack is designed to house your most important essentials for EDC. From tech to travel it’s got plenty of thoughtful features to cover your bases for your next voyage (and beyond).

The Lunar Pack shares a lot of similarities with a modern everyday daypacks. You get a 22L main compartment that opens flat to give you optimal access to the space, a top handle for quick grab and go, and a dedicated 16“ laptop compartment for your tech essential. But as an Aer bag, the features don’t stop there. They’ve given the Lunar Pack four exterior quick-access pockets including a padded top one for more sensitive gear like your phone. On the inside you get three interior zip, mesh, and elastic compartments for organizing gear that isn’t already in a packing cube or pouch. There’s an extra grab handle on the side as well as a luggage pass-through on the back panel for travel duties. And last but not least, padded shoulder straps offer comfort and utility with a removable sternum strap and D-ring attachment point.

Many of the hallmarks of Aer’s bags form the core of the Lunar Pack’s materials and construction. It uses a lighter 1200D CORDURA nylon weave compared to the usual 1680D, but still makes use of YKK reverse coil and AquaGuard zippers for each of its compartments, as well as Duraflex hardware for the straps and buckles. Even newer Aer additions like the front geometric stitching design, a zipper garage for the top compartment, and the new soft woven lining interior make an appearance on the bag. It’s a familiar design to the brand, while still offering something new to set itself apart.

The Lunar Pack was designed with the prompt of “a one-week trip to the moon,” and while your everyday excursions may not always take you as far or as high, the bag itself is more than up to the task of your daily missions. Pick it up in two colors from Ministry of Supply at the link below while supplies last.

Redux Pilot-Diver Mission Watches

Redux Pilot-Diver Mission Watches

When you take some design cues from iconic military instruments in watch history, reimagine them with premium materials like titanium and sapphire, and package it all up at an affordable price, it’s a recipe for success. Redux proved it once before with their original COURG titanium hybrid automatic watch Kickstarter campaign in 2015. Not one to rest on their laurels, their next mission was to get back to the drawing board and deliver even more timepieces to help you navigate your everyday adventures. This time around, they’re back with an impressive, all-new line-up of four watches designed from the ground up, inspired by iconic military instruments, and built with the materials and components fit for any discerning EDCer or watch enthusiast’s wrist. With such varied designs, functionality, shapes, and sizes, Redux has you covered on your next mission with a watch from this new collection.

Similar to Redux’s original COURG (short for “courage“) each of the four watches in this campaign represent important character traits—both for whatever mission you’re tackling and for life itself. The COURAGE, HONOR, VALOR, and SCOUT names not only represent their respective virtues, but also tie in to the military history the watches themselves are based on. The COURG, HONNR, VALOR,  and SCOUT 5-letter codes are aviation waypoints used by pilots to chart their flights around the world.

But beyond their names and military equipment inspiration, each of the watches share common mechanical traits that unify the collection. The use of titanium for each model’s case, premium scratch-resistant sapphire glass, Super-LumiNova BGW9 lume, Japanese automatic movements, and nylon G-10 NATO straps only scratch the surface of each timepiece’s value, and offer a compelling combination of features especially for the price of early pledges. Add to that additional choices for titanium grade, DLC coating, and multiple strap options, and you can build an ideal everyday watch fit for any of your daily missions.

The first of the new models is the HONNR, a 37mm pilot watch with a distinct square case, based on the A13A and A-9 navigation instruments for U.S aircraft. Its Miyota 9015 movement is encased into a titanium shell topped with flat sapphire glass, with a 4 o’clock date window and 120-click triple function bezel with a lumed ceramic insert. Not content with informing the skies, the HONNR is also rated for 20 ATM /200M water resistance.

Making a big comeback is the COURG.42, re-enlisting as a bold 42mm pilot’s watch in three dial variants, while still maintaining the clean dial of the original. You can opt for the classic “flieger” Type-A, the WWII fighter pilot A-11 design, or the GCT, inspired by WWII USAF bomber navigators and their answer to the German Type-B design. The larger case of the COURG.42 allows all the details of each variant’s dial to shine, while powered by by the same reliable Miyota 9015 movement with date complication.

The clean 38mm VALOR model comes in two variants, each with its own history. The Type-E specification was produced by the Elgin National Watch Company in Illinois and issued to soldiers in WW1, with a unique—if not the first—black dial appropriately named “Black Star.” It was designed with legibility in mind during a time when trying to pull out a pocket watch could spell trouble, and further set itself apart thanks to ornate hands and star markers. The second variant is from the British Royal Air Force, where a new spec called 6B/346 Mk.11 was used for “astro-navigation“ purposes. Each of the VALOR variants also come with the Miyota 9015 and the rest of the Redux manufacturing spec.

Last but not least is the SCOUT, the most unique design among the four new campaign models. It features a modular, two-case/dial system, each of them 28mm with three modules to choose from, and takes inspiration from the iconic Seiko Fieldmaster “Contra” watch. You have a choice to slot in an automatic Seiko NH05 module (with an excellent 50-hour power reserve), a digital Casio 3284 readout, as well as a Grade AA liquid-filled compass with a lumed dial and a 60-click uni-directional bezel. It’s a bold design that’s for the select few willing to try something completely different from their everyday timepiece.

No matter which model you pick, Redux’s new collection offers a wealth of features for both enthusiasts and collectors alike, and there’s still plenty of time to pledge for an early bird price that can take up to 50% off each model’s final price. Pledge slots for these 50% off Early Bird prices are going very fast now that the campaign has hit over 30 times its goal, so be sure to check it out at the link below to save your slot.

Trending: Vostok Amphibia Automatic Watch

Trending: Vostok Amphibia Automatic Watch

The Vostok Amphibia is an automatic Russian watch that gets the job done without doing a number on your wallet. You get a modest case size of 40mm, not too big as to become bulky while still retaining a meaningful wrist presence. The case features a rotating bezel with a black face and white indicators. Staying on theme, the actual face also features a black background with oversized contrasting hour markers on the inner side, and smaller minute markers on the outer side. You’ll also find oversized Super-LumiNova glow-in-the-dark indexes at each hour for even better legibility. The Amphibia’s face is protected by scratch-resistant mineral glass, which, when coupled with a large screw down crown, gives you a full 200 meters of water resistance. Inside, you’ll find a 31 ruby jewel Vostok 2416 automatic movement which features a 31 hour power reserve along with a date complication. While the shock-proof case is made out of stainless steel, you get to choose between a steel bracelet or two different NATO straps, depending on your preferences. Oversized details, a resilient construction, and a reasonable price make the Vostok Amphibia worth a look for the next watch in your EDC. You can pick one up at the link below.
