Chrome MXD Fathom

Chrome MXD Fathom

As a gear enthusiast, there's a good chance you've ran into the all too familiar dilemma of wanting to carry too much gear. It's tempting to overpack for your daily commute, and even moreso when traveling. But while some EDCers follow the mantra of “two is one and one is none,” the reality is that sometimes you don't need a backup for everything. Whether you've already got a dialed-in, minimalist carry or want to pare down to just the essentials for your daily commute, the Chrome MXD Fathom just might do the trick. It offers a slim and light platform with a lean pocket layout to help you bring along only what you need, and nothing you don't.

To withstand the wear and tear of your commute, the Chrome MXD Fathom Backpack features a heavy-duty, abrasion-resistant 1680 ballistic nylon build. It keeps organization simple with three major compartments for your gear. The main compartment can accommodate tablets or laptops up to 13”, while two large zip pockets on the front of the pack grant quicker access to the rest of your gear. The lightly padded left pocket offers some organization with a mesh pocket and key tether loop, while the right pocket is lined with plush cushioning, making it perfect for electronics, glasses and other things you want to avoid scratching.  The bag also has a hidden side pocket for small, slim things such as gloves, a card wallet, or even a portable hard drive.

For your other things that don't fit the main compartment or pockets, there is a D-ring attachment centrally mounted on the back. You can use this to hang a safety light while riding or your helmet for after you've arrived at your destination. The D-ring also serves as an attachment point for mounting other essentials like a light jacket or water bottle, to name a few. Loops on the shoulder straps provide more modular options as well, ideal for gear you want handy like your phone or keys.

While wearing it, the light padding on the MXD Fathom's back panel keeps you comfortable, and the height-adjustable chest strap stabilizes the load for a balanced ride. Last but not least, reflective strips on the shoulder pad loops improve visibility at night. For a low-profile pack that's fast and light, check out the MXD Fathom at the link below.

Pokka Pens

As useful as they are to keep in your pocket, not all pens were designed with carry in mind. Even the ones that are small enough to easily slip into your pocket usually compromise comfort and balance when you actually write with them. For Pokka Pens, the focus on pocket-friendliness is right there in the name. It's all thanks to its clever design that's super compact when closed, but extends to a comfortable length when it's time to write. Best of all, these made-in-the-USA EDC pens don't just save pocket space, they save pocket change too, thanks to their accessible price point.

Upon first look, you'll notice just how small the Pokka Pen measures when it's closed. At under 3.5”, it certainly fits the part as a pocket essential. It features a body that fully nests into its cap, essentially halving the amount of pocket space it takes up. Usually, a pen that short might feel cramped during longer sessions, but the Pokka Pen avoids this by extending to a full-length pen. The cap firmly secures to the back of the pen with a satisfying snap, secured by a clever system of O-rings and ridges. Once extended, the pen reaches a comfortable 5.5” length—just as good for quick notes as it is for extended writing sessions with its included, replaceable ballpoint ink cartridge.

Because they're so lightweight, Pokka Pens are hardly noticeable when carried loose in your pocket. However, you can also use it with an available clip for the added convenience, security, and quick access. No matter how you choose to carry it, the Pokka Pen is compact, lightweight, and comfortable to write with once it's fully extended.

The best part is the Pokka Pen is impressively affordable as far as EDC gear goes. Starting at just over $8 for a pack of three, you can have one to keep in your pocket, one in your bag, and a backup in your car with little investment. To sweeten the deal, Everyday Carry readers will receive an additional 15% off by clicking the link below, with no coupon code required.

Nitecore P18

Nitecore P18

A modern EDC light often tries to do it all, and sometimes, to a fault. It's hard to strike a balance between size, features, and power, which results in a solid flashlight for general use but isn't the best at any particular function. So when building the P18 for a tactical purpose, Nitecore zeroed in on the features that would matter the most. And thanks to the brand's pedigree of purpose-built lights, the P18 has the fit, finish, and functionality befitting a light you need to depend on.

Taking cues from its unibody keychain brothers, the P18 comes with a die-cast unibody cut from aerospace-grade aluminum alloy. The single-piece construction gives it better structural integrity compared to multi-part tubes, while the shape offers a better usability by way of a more comfortable grip, anti-roll shape, and a narrower profile to ease deployment from your pocket. The business end of the P18 has slots for its main Cree XHP35 HD LED and auxiliary red LED, while the rear section has two discrete buttons for activating each of its outputs. A screw-down battery compartment next to the main switch holds the light's included IMR 18650 3100 mAh battery.

The P18 isn't wanting for power or runtime between its 5 main modes. Turbo gives its a 1800-lumen output, while Ultralow is 1 lumen with a runtime of 220 hours. You also get 3 special modes which include SOS, beacon, and a random strobe pattern. All 8 of these modes are controlled via the silent rear switch, with momentary on/Turbo and direct access to Ultralow. The discrete button on the P18's underside activates its 10-lumen red LED, acting as both a night vision-friendly light and a battery indicator.

Machined grooves in different patterns run the length of the P18's 4.15” body, giving improved grip even when wearing gloves while retaining a form factor that rivals the smallest 18650 flashlights on the market. IP65-rated water resistance and 1 meter of impact protection gives it ample protection even in tough environments, while still carrying light at 3.65 ounces with a removable pocket clip for EDC.

Nitecore's precision never fails to produce some of the best purpose-built lights for any duty, and the P18 certainly fits the bill. Add this compact tactical powerhouse to your carry by clicking on the Amazon link below.
