Filson Backpack Dry Bag and Travel Kit

When it comes to keeping your gear safe and dry from the wet elements, there’s actually a big difference between a bag that’s water-resistant and one that’s truly waterproof. You can count on the former to handle a few bursts of rain, while the latter keeps water out absolutely. Filson takes this a step further with their Backpack Dry Bag, which is rated to handle even total submersion in water. But unlike a traditional dry bag, Filson’s design features a comfortable backpack design that’s easy to tote with you on all your journeys, and its extensive organization and modularity options make it a perfect choice for travel and outdoors everyday carry.

The secret behind the Filson Backpack Dry Bag’s superior waterproofing is built into the 840D nylon shell with an extensive coat of waterproofing compound and sealed shut at the seams. Filson employs TIZIP waterproof zippers to give you easy access to the interior while maintaining a watertight protective seal when the bag is closed. Once open, the bag offers 28 liters of space that’s plenty to hold a change of clothes and other travel essentials, and an internal organization pocket holds smaller items so they won’t shift as you move about.

The bag also has numerous waterproof side pockets, including a transparent front pocket for identification purposes. There’s also a quick-access mesh side pocket and small mesh pockets on the bag’s comfortable straps. To help you steady a load on your back as you trek, there’s a sternum strap and a hip belt, and the belt features MOLLE-compatible webbing for further customization options. And when you need to store the bag outdoors, you can tie it down with the D-rings at its rear to prevent it from getting away from you when you least expect it.

And if you’re looking for a smart way to carry your toiletries and other small essentials, check out Filson’s Rugged Twill Travel Kit as well. It’s a tough twill and Bridle Leather dopp kit that’s sized right at 5.5 liters to hold your most important items on the go, and comes with rustproof brass zippers to match the aesthetic. It comes fully lined with waterproof nylon that works both ways: if your toiletries spill in your Travel Kit, the rest of your gear gets spared from further damage. This is especially important in waterproof bag because there’s no way for liquid to run off, making the situation worse if you carry tech gear like cameras, tablets, and laptops. And aside from the performance and functionality of the Rugged Twill Travel Kit, it has a touch of class thanks to a handsome leather trim that contrasts well with the tan colorway of the rest of the exterior shell.

Both Filson’s Backpack Dry Bag and Rugged Twill Travel Kit offer something most other EDC bags and pouches can’t: extreme waterproof performance that you can have confidence in. And both bags perform this function while providing you convenience and utility with designs that aren’t empty waterproof black holes without options for organization and quick access. And in the case of the Backpack Dry Bag, it makes for a comfortable long-term carry too. The best part is that for a limited time, you can save up to 50% off these two items and many others at Filson’s online store, with even more savings the more you buy. So check out the link below and pick up Filson’s waterproof gear for your own EDC today.

Trending: Kershaw Chill

When you first take a look at the Kershaw Chill you’ll notice the bead-blasted matte finish on the narrow drop-point blade. This shape makes it ideal for both slicing and piercing work. The plain edge blade measures in at 3.13“ and made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, which is resistant to wear and corrosion while featuring a good edge retention. The blade is held in place via a liner lock to keep the slim profile, and it features an ambidextrous operation via a flipper tab. The Chill’s G10 scales are both lightweight and very durable keeping the knife’s weight down to 2 ounces. The material is designed to be grippy, so the handles give you a confident hold on your knife even if you hands are wet. They come with a slight curve, giving the knife a stylish profile. Last but not least, a pocket clip lets you carry in the tip down position, while a lanyard hole offers extra options for carry, personalization, and retrieval. Pick one up in the link below.

Our Favorite Victorinox Gear for Cyber Week

Nothing rounds out an everyday carry like a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife. Not only do you get plenty of utility and functionality that fits in your pockets, but thanks to their variety of vibrant colorways, they make excellent additions to any EDC. For Black Friday and the holidays this year we’ve partnered with our friends at Victorinox and picked out our favorite new tools and gear that would make great gifts for the EDCer on your list. From a sport-inspired timepiece ensemble to a stealthy collection of multi-tools and even a vibrant knife that’s are perfect fits for the season, there’s something in this guide for you.

Onyx Black Collection

Thanks to a new process—polispectral (PS) coloring—that gives a covert, high-performance coating to a high-utility multi-tool, Victorinox's new Onyx Black collection brings three of their most popular models to the forefront by dialing the colors back. Three of Victorinox’s popular models across three sizes make up the Onyx Black collection. The Signature Lite offers a complete EDC in itself with its 8 functions including a knife, pen, and flashlight. The Spartan represents Victorinox’s 91mm line and offering a capable tool with 12 functions within its medium-sized frame, including two larger blades, drivers, openers, and the usual pair of slots for a toothpick and tweezers. Last but certainly not least is the Ranger Grip 55, representing Victorinox’s large tool line and offering the biggest polispectral platform yet among their multi-tools. Among its 12 functions, its 3.8“ locking blade is its key feature, letting you take on your biggest everyday tasks when paired with its grip-focused polyamide handles

The polispectral process adds a layer of chromium oxide to the stainless steel components of each tool, producing not only a smooth and glossy dark finish, but also an extra layer of durability and depth to the tools’ designs. The resulting monochrome tone adds an exotic touch and collectibility to tools you may have already seen before, and fits perfectly with any EDC, especially one with an all-black theme in mind.

Hunter Pro Red Alox

Just in time for the holidays, Victorinox is giving their Hunter Pro the Alox treatment in their iconic red colorway. It gives this rugged, outdoor-ready knife some high-visibility on the campsite while also making it a stylish statement piece in your urban EDC. The Hunter Pro Red Alox is not to be confused with its smaller cousins in the Victorinox lineup. It was designed for the outdoors, which means that the use case for the Hunter Pro is more than opening packages in the office. When the cutting jobs get tougher, the knife needs to remain up to the task. That’s why this comes with 3.8” drop-point blade and a matching 5” handle for maximum comfort while slicing. The ribbed Alox scales (aluminum with a protective layer of anodic oxidation) also help with grip so every cut is taken with confidence. The lockback mechanism also keeps the blade securely in place when you don’t need it, but deploys in a pinch thanks to the large thumbhole.

Making gear rugged enough for the outdoors doesn’t mean that carrying it has to be inconvenient. Victorinox knows a thing or two about designing for your pockets after all, it comes with a removable clip for deep pocket carry. If you want to be more discreet it also comes with a paracord lanyard which makes it easier to retrieve from your pocket or bag and also might come in handy if you ever find yourself in an emergency situation.

FieldForce Sport Chrono

The FieldForce is Victorinox’s take on the racing-inspired sport chronograph, offering the classic 3-dial chrono face and tachymeter scale bezel in striking high-visibility colorways as well as more traditional and understated options. At its heart is a Swiss-made analog quartz movement with chronograph and date complications, housed in a 42mm steel case with a screw-in caseback and under a scratch-resistant, triple-coated, and anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The quartz movement gives the watch more precise timekeeping, and large hands and numerals with color accents paired with Super-LumiNova lume give excellent legibility.

You have the option of a genuine rubber sport band or the classic steel bracelet to match your activity and the rest of your carry, with eight total combinations to suit your style. 10ATM/100 meters of water resistance also means the FieldForce is ready to be your reliable timekeeper, no matter the weather condition. And to round out your EDC even better, this latest addition to the FieldForce line with a striking hi-vis orange band comes bundled with a Spartan PS multi-tool with 12 functions.

Check It Out

In addition to great deals on the Black Onyx Collection, Hunter Pro Alox and the FieldForce Sport Chrono, Victorinox's Cyber Week promotion runs until November 30.  All orders over $100 gets a free Swiss Classic paring knife and Allrounder cutting board to level up your kitchen essentials, too.  Check out the full list of Cyber Week deals at the link below.

Deal Alert: Olight Flash Sale

Deal Alert: Olight Flash Sale

If you need a solid flashlight with cutting edge features, simple and efficient interfaces, and options to suit your needs large and small, then Olight may have the perfect light for you. In addition to the black colorways you would see in other lights, they’ve also made a point to regularly release limited edition colorways to add a big splash of color and unique aesthetic to your EDC. In their latest Flash Sale, we’re taking a look at their latest releases, all of them on a deep discount and limited while supplies last. Read on below to check out the lights you can grab right now!

Warrior Mini Seasons and Eternal

The compact powerhouse Warrior Mini returns in a slew of exotic titanium colorways that represent the seasons and then some. An 18650 powers the light's 6 modes and up to 1,500 lumens, with magnetic charging, IPX8-rated resistance, and a 2-way clip rounding out its features. Olight rarely produces titanium lights, so this set is the one to watch.

Marauder 2

The "soda can" pocket rocket form factor is back in Olight's latest model, and it's got a few more tricks than just producing a scorching 14,000 lumens up to 800 meters. The Marauder 2 comes with a toggle that lets you switch between a spotlight and a floodlight, pulling double duty as an outdoors-focused seeker and a massive indoor illuminator. Output is controlled via a unique knob switch, with 3 customized 21700 batteries powering the engine. Grab it now in Olight's signature blue limited colorway. 

Javelot Turbo

This tactical thrower gets the tan treatment while going the distance with a 1,300-lumen output pushed out to a staggering 1,300 meters. Its design calls back the iconic and reliable baton lights of old, but comes with all the modern conveniences, like a convenient side switch to manage its 4 modes and a 10,000mAh battery pack you can magnetically charge with Olight's ecosystem.

Perun 2

Olight's versatile right-angle light returns in a high-vis colorway that's a perfect addition to an outdoors kit, just in case you drop it while traversing the beaten path. You can put the Perun 2's max of 2,500 lumens to use both as a headlamp and as a powerful handheld light, with a head switch for convenient operation. It's powered by the latest and greatest 21700 li-ion cell, offering immense output for its size and up to 12.5 days of runtime on its lower modes.

GiantMouse ACE Biblio Pocket Knives

When you look to the EDC community for new knife recommendations, chances are something designed by the Danish knifemakers Jens Ansø and Jesper Voxnaes are bound to come up in the conversation. Their designs have been popular among seasoned knife collectors and new EDCers alike for their elegant balance of utility and aesthetics. The two have joined forces as the GiantMouse brand, bringing their mastery of minimalism to produce high-end, limited edition custom knives for everyday carry and outdoor use. The GiantMouse ACE line brings that custom-level design language to a broader market in the form of more affordable and more accessible production knives. The ACE Biblio in particular builds upon the popular custom GM1 silhouette as its foundation, delivering the design and performance worthy of an everyday carry in 9 different variations to better match your tastes and suit your EDC needs.

Although the GiantMouse ACE Biblio takes a utility-led, functionally-driven approach to its design, the result is as beautiful as it is practical. Its broad curves and organic lines in both the blade and handle make for a comfortable, ergonomic knife that’s versatile enough for most everyday tasks. It starts with its wharncliffe-esque blade shape, providing a wide belly to maximize usable cutting edge. It’s especially useful given its stout, 2.75“ blade length. The blade still comes to a sharp point for piercing and precision work, with jimping further up along the spine to add better grip for your index finger for finer handling. The full, flat saber grind on the Biblio also makes it an excellent slicer, while its high-performance Böhler M390 steel ensures it’ll keep a sharp edge for longer, even after day-in, day-out use. The blade deploys in a flash thanks to ball bearings in the pivot and a jimped, rear flipper tab, which then forms a comfortable forward finger choil for a secure grip as it secures in place via a liner lock.

Moving onto its handle, the Biblio comes in your choice of Micarta, Titanium, G10, or Bronze—all offering unique aesthetics, physical properties, and feel in hand. G10 and Micarta canvas offer a more organic handfeel and lightweight carry. Titanium brings an unmatched strength-to-weight ratio to the table. Lastly, solid bronze brings a uniquely satisfying heft to the knife and patinas to a one-of-a-kind finish that gets better with age. No matter the material, the 4“ handle fills the hand with dialed-in ergonomics, a generous choil, and three-finger grip towards the end of the knife for a balanced grip. A low-profile, reversible wire pocket clip gives you multiple carry options without creating hotspots when gripping tightly.

If you’re looking for a quality knife from some of the best designers in the business, but don’t want to break the bank, the ACE Biblio is a seriously compelling option. You can browse the line of these made-in-Italy knives, available in four different handle materials and satin or stonewashed blade finishes from GiantMouse’s site at the link below.

Thrym CellVault-18

Thrym CellVault-18

Whether you’re out on a mission or on the trail, you know how important a flashlight—and its batteries—can be. That’s why it’s a great idea to keep some fresh, spare batteries with you, since it seems like your flashlight always runs out of juice when you least expect it or need it the most. While it’s simple enough to toss a spare set in your bag, retrieving them can be a slow and cumbersome ordeal. When you need access to your batteries in times when every second counts, the Thyrm CellVault-18 might be the solution you’re looking for. Designed for field use and tactical applications, this rugged battery storage attachment protects your batteries from harsh environments and grants quick access so you can perform a quick “reload” of your torch, ensuring you’re never caught out in the dark for long again.

The CellVault-18 is designed to keep 1x18650 or 2x18350 batteries both protected from the environment and easily accessible. Measuring in at 7.5“ x 4”, it can accommodate a single 18650 cell or two 18350s. Aside from keeping things versatile by occupying less than one MOLLE/PALS column, this size also helps keep the weight down at only 2 oz. The CellVault-18 protects batteries from the rough and tumble of EDC and field use thanks to its durable, double-layered construction. It also includes a waterproof O-ring seal rated to IPX7, which means that it can withstand water down to 2 meters for around 30 minutes, fending off damage from storms, splashes, and spills. The case also features a clear side-window for at-a-glance visual identification of its contents. Internal foam padding not only provides shock resistance, but it also silences battery rattle when you want to keep a low profile. Finally, it also comes with a metal latch for simple installation or attachment to MOLLE/PALS webbing or similar straps. 

The CellVault-18 is available in 5 different colors, including both tactical and hi-vis options. You can also find other versions of the CellVault which fit different types of batteries, like CR123s, AAs, and more to fulfill your backup needs. Designed and made in the USA, the CellVault-18 will make sure you’re mission-capable no matter what comes your way. Pick one up in the link below.
