Read on below to check out the lights you can grab right now, including new and unique limited edition colorways!

Warrior X 3

Olight's Warrior series have always been about power and tactical efficiency, and this third iteration of their handheld powerhouse brings the both the lumens and the features. A customized 21700 battery gives it a max output of 2,500 lumens and up to 560 meters (~1837 feet) thanks to its larger-than-usual head designed to throw. The larger battery also gives it an extended runtime of up to 8 hours on its 300-lumen Low setting.

Parrot Folding Knife

Olight isn't slowing down on the knife front, and the Parrot is their latest foray into a compact, foldable EDC. It comes with a 2.6" modified sheepsfoot blade in 154CM steel, best known for being a high carbon, corrosion-resistant, and all-around tough stainless steel, deployed via a front flipper tab that doesn't stick out like most regular flipper folders. A liner lock secures the blade open while in use, and when you're done, fold it into its G-10 (gray) or micarta (black) handles. The Parrot's a clean and tough performer for EDC tasks, with solid features worth a look for your next knife.

If you're looking to get a new EDC flashlight, make sure to check out these heavy hitters for Olight's November Flash Sale, along with a wide variety of returning favorites in fresh colorways like the i3T PLUS 2 x AAA light, Warrior Mini 2 OD Green, Obulb MC motion sensor lamp, along with plenty of bundles of freebies, so make sure to click the link below.

G-SHOCK Forged Carbon MUDMASTER GWG2000-1A3

G-SHOCK Forged Carbon MUDMASTER GWG2000-1A3

G-SHOCKs are in a league of their own when it comes to watches that can resist the wear and tear of daily use even in the harshest conditions. But even within the legendary lineup some models are a cut above the rest, purpose-built to truly be the toughest watches you can wear on your wrist.

One look at the new GWG2000-1A3 and it’s clear that every millimeter of the watch was designed for toughness, and worthy of carrying the MUDMASTER badge. True to its name, the watch is both dust and mud-resistant thanks to a screw lock crown and mud-resistant buttons, with stainless steel pipes and silicone buffers bolstering their construction against ingress. But its unique feature is a new forged carbon bezel paired with a carbon core guard case structure, allowing for maximum impact protection while still contained in a wearable 54.4mm case weighing 3.74 ounces.

The secret to the new bezel and structure is carbon fiber, which is then heat-pressed to shape MUDMASTER's premium components. Its carbon fiber reinforced frame, stainless steel buttons  with silicone buffers, bolster its structure. The result is a thinner, but no less effective case at 16.1mm, 1.9mm thinner than its predecessor. Inside the case is a hybrid dial, designed and optimized for maximum legibility in the outdoors.

 It features a digital display that delivers information depending on which sensor you activate: thermometer, barometer, altimeter, or digital compass, indicated by a yellow arrow on the top left quadrant and the second hand points to north, altitude or barmetric pressure differential depending on the mode. The analog timekeeping utilizes oversized Arabic numerals at the 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock positions. For low light conditions, you can activate its Super illuminator function composed of two high-brightness LEDs, which in turn help power up the Neobrite coating on the analog hands

The face itself is protected by a clear, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal featuring a non-reflective coating. Even the band features a detailed texture that adds to the robust aesthetic while also adding grip while worn. This Tough Movement, Tough Solar powered G-SHOCK, naturally, is also water resistant for up to 200 meters, offering top tier protection against every element.

But it’s not all brawn with the GWG2000-1A3. Like with many flagship G-SHOCKs, you can expect a full suite of timekeeping and data-tracking functions, like a 1/100-second stopwatch, 5 daily alarms, a countdown timer and world time for 29 time zones + UTC. Last but not least, you can count on the watch keeping you on a precise schedule thanks to GSHOCK’s signature Multi-Band 6 atomic timekeeping technology. Pick up the best of the best at the link below.

CRKT Compact CEO

Ever since its introduction, the CEO has been one of CRKT’s most sought-after everyday carry knives. And even if you aren’t a CEO, the way you can get things done with this sleek gentleman’s knife might make you feel like one. It's all thanks to its practical cutting power combined with its streamlined design that make it a great choice for daily carry and special occasions alike. In case you haven’t picked up a CEO in hopes of a more premium blade steel or an even pocket-friendlier design, CRKT has you covered. The new CRKT Compact CEO features a premium CPM-S35VN stainless steel blade, upgraded carbon fiber handles, and a more proportional blade length befitting its namesake.

The Compact CEO vastly improves on the original knife with an S35VN stainless steel blade that offers superior hardness and cutting power. With S35VN stainless steel, you can achieve a sharper edge that will last for longer when compared to the original blade’s 8Cr13MoV composition. This makes for a smaller knife and it’s especially compelling if you have to abide by a blade length restriction as well. It also means that you get better cutting performance despite the blade being sized down to 2.62" compared to the original blade’s 3.11" length. 

The flipper action also makes for an easy one handed opening compared to the original manual thumbstud, and the low-profile index flipper tab doesn’t break up the streamlined look of the blade and there’s a strong bias towards closure that helps ensure the blade doesn’t open while it’s in your pockets. But once you pull it out of its deep carry position, the IKBS ball bearings in the pivot make for a clean and crisp action that’s a joy to use. Another big improvement that the new Compact CEO brings to the table is the use of carbon fiber in the scales which lends the Compact CEO a vastly improved modern gent’s knife aesthetic. 

With the CRKT Compact CEO, you have the ultimate version of this community-favorite knife. CRKT managed to take something great and improve upon the formula even more, with looks as sharp as it can cut. If the new Compact CEO interests you, make sure to click the link below to buy one today direct from CRKT’s web store.

Pelican G5 RF Field Wallet

Pelican G5 RF Field Wallet

While many options exist for extremely durable bags, watches, and plenty other EDC gear, wallets are a different story. It’s a bit odd considering they carry your (arguably) most important and valuable essentials. Sure you can find wallets made of metal or carbon fiber to keep your cards protected from accidental drops or even RFID-skimming, but once water enters the equation, all bets are off. If you’re the type of EDCer who doesn’t leave the security of their valuables up to chance, you probably know of the brand Pelican. They make some of the best storage solutions for gear that’s absolutely worth protecting, like expensive cameras and outdoor survival gear. Now, they’ve brought their expertise in manufacturing overbuilt, bombproof cases to your pocket with the G5 RF Field Wallet. It’s a crushproof, waterproof, and even “hackerproof” solution to store your most valuable essentials.

The G5 RF Field Wallet looks less like your traditional bifold wallet and more like an impenetrable shell, constructed with an aircraft grade aluminum exterior. The lightweight metal helps shave grams to keep it pocket friendly while lending to the wallet’s water-, crush- and impact resistance. It also helps it fend off RFID signals, blocking attempts to steal your personal information from cards you’re carrying.

The wallet goes beyond material choices to offer this level of protection, too. The clamshell design keeps shut with a secure snap-latch system that inspires confidence when closed and requires deliberate force to disengage. This closure mechanism, combined with a gasketed O-ring seal, makes the wallet waterproof to an IP67 rating, allowing it to withstand submersion in water for up to 1 meter for about 30 minutes. Both the latch and the hinge of the wallet use steel pins, rather than aluminum or brass ones like you’d find on similar offerings, to ensure maximum durability at potential failure points with moving parts.

Once you open the wallet it lays flat in a vertical layout, offering two storage compartments lined with a soft and grippy elastomer material to carry your items. The top compartment features an elastomeric strap, ready to carry your credit, debit and ID cards. The bottom section keeps smaller items like folded cash, loose change, or a spare key in check with a perforated elastomer “mesh” pocket. Last but not least, a rear rubber cash strap provides additional external storage for cash overflow and quick access to things that need less protection.

The G5 RF Field Wallet features a built-in lanyard attachment point and included wrist lanyard for added security and multiple carry options wherever your adventures take you. Keep your money and information protected from water, virtual thieves and heavy impact with the Pelican G5 RF Field Wallet. It's available in Black or Silver for $39.95 exclusively from Pelican at the link below.

Trending: Gerber Prybrid Utility

Trending: Gerber Prybrid Utility

Sometimes you don’t need a full-sized knife for your everyday cutting tasks, or your work environment prevents you from carrying one. That’s where a dedicated, compact utility blade like the Gerber Prybrid Utility comes in. It re-engineers the standard box cutter, offering the convenience of standard replaceable blades while also featuring seven other functions. A steel-cased slide mechanism deploys and retracts the blade smoothly, and fully extending it allows for quick and easy blade replacement. The spine of the tool provides a rigid platform for a prybar, while integrating a wire stripper, a nail puller, flathead drivers, and an always useful bottle opener.

Under the tool there’s a cord cutter notch that allows you to sever cordage or webbing without having to deploy the main blade. All of this is sandwiched between textured and tough G10 scales that help with handling and grip. At 2.9 ounces and 4.25" closed, the Gerber Prybrid Utility lets you maximize functionality in a compact package that’s easy to pocket or hang off your keychain. Choose from OD Green or Tactical Gray G10 scales at the link below.

Our Favorite Gear for the Holidays from Dango

It’s truly a night and day difference when you switch from crowded pockets with a bulky wallet, loose coins, and miscellaneous small items to a system that lets you carry, organize, and protect your essentials. Dango has been in the game for a while now, but that hasn’t stopped them from putting out innovative items with their signature robust and precise design language. We’ve picked 5 of our favorite items from their comprehensive catalog so you can help yourself and your loved ones with upgrading, organizing, and optimizing your EDCs.

Dango A10 Wallet + Accessories

The A10 wallet is an innovative modular system that lets you mix and match with different accessories, so you’re able to switch the features you need based on the tasks at hand. At the core of the system is an anodized 6061 aerospace-grade aluminum chassis able to hold up to 4 cards, with one side featuring RFID protection and the other an ID window for quick-entry cards.

Thanks to its unique rail system, your or your giftee can attach various other modules like a bifold wallet module, a single-pocket wallet, a pull-pocket adapter, and even a phone adapter plate to always have the features you need when you head out the door. This rail system even allows for extra customizability to fit your style and preference, with addons like wood or G-10 backplates to add a unique flair to your unique wallet setups.

Dango’s New Machined Writing Tools

New to Dango’s catalog, the Mini Pen and Permanent Marker were constructed with the same precision and rugged construction as most of the brand’s products. In the Mini Pen you’ll find a comfortable and precision-machined aluminum body, providing the user with a satisfying feel in their hands. It remains portable at a compact 4.2“ long, so it’s a natural fit for most pockets. Its use of a Schmidt 4889M ball ballpoint pressurized ink refill ensures write-anywhere reliability just like the rest of its construction.

If you need something a bit bolder (literally), the Dango Permanent Marker upgrades the iconic and dependable Sharpie marker with a robust, machined shell, a significant upgrade from its regular plastic body. Plus where the regular Sharpie clip is fragile and bendable, the Dango Permanent Marker housing offers you a sturdy pocket clip up top that will stand up to use (and abuse). It even has a pointy edge at the tip for opening boxes and envelopes for added convenience, and fits the Sharpie’s use case perfectly as a companion for for processing packaging and deliveries.

Dango Trays

After a long day outside, people tend to just dump their pockets onto the first table or countertop available. But like the rest of your curated carry, having a right place for everything is the best way to organize your gear until the next outing—the last thing you want is misplacing or damaging your gear by having it fall off a table or the side of your bed. Dango’s trays embrace the adage: “a place for everything and everything in its place” and come in three designs, all of them CNC-machined from a solid piece of aluminum, offering durability and light weight at the same time.

The EDC Tray is the biggest of the three and is built to handle everything from wallet, keys and coins, to headphones and knives, while the Side Tray is a nice complementary tray that can still hold most EDC items in spite of the smaller size. Last but not least is the Cash Tray, a small piece designed to hold cash and coins, featuring rounded edges for easy retrieval. All three are the same height so they’re a natural fit with each other, and all three can be upgraded with anti-slip DTEX pads add grip and protection for each compartment.

Dango Watches

If the EDCer on your list enjoys an active lifestyle and needs a watch that can keep up with them, Dango offers three models that may suit their speed. Just like the rest of their sturdy accessories, these timepieces by Dango were built with extreme care and attention to detail. You have a choice of the Dive, the Trek, and the Chrono, each with their own different use cases, all of them tough as nails. They share a 45mm case made out of 316L stainless steel and a scratch resistant sapphire glass. They come with reliable Swiss Ronda movements, and also feature a patented interchangeable lug system to make switching bands painless on each and between watches.

If the day’s adventure ends up in the water, the Dive performs with a rotating bezel and 200M of water resistance resistance, as well as a legible and high-visibility hands and dial. If time is of the essence then the timekeeping functions of the Chrono will be up to the task. Last but not least is the Trek, bridging the gap between work and the weekend, in a classic ensemble of steel and premium Horween leather.

Dango Capsules

Small essentials are inevitably a part of everyone’s EDC. And whether it’s an emergency stash of cash, coins, pills, or even keys, there’s probably a Dango Capsule that can carry it. You have the choice of various sizes and colorways to suit your carry needs, each built around a specific use case. Do you or your giftee tend to carry a lot of coins? The Coin Capsule can hold up to $5.44 in a combination of quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies.

Need to carry specific medication that can’t be lost? A regular Capsule with an attached lanyard should do the trick, keeping the contents safe from the elements and within reach. And for everything else, there’s multiple sizes of the regular Capsule, all of them built from the same 6061 aluminum or food-safe titanium to be able to protect even the smallest and most critical of contents.
