NutSac Modular Carry System

Many EDC bags take inspiration from the design, toughness, and reliability of military bags. But something ideal for the field isn’t always appropriate for an urban commute or workplace. There are ways to run with tactical bags that are more low-profile, more discreet in looks, and without sacrificing fit, finish, and performance. That’s why bags like NutSac’s TacSac 13 satchel truly shine. It’s a classy leather and waxed-canvas shoulder bag that fits right at home in a casual or professional environment, and sets itself apart with a robust modular carry system that gives tactical bags a run for their money.

The TacSac 13 hides its tactical features inside of a classy shoulder bag featuring an exterior made of traditional waxed canvas trimmed with full-grain leather and brass metal hardware. Its low-profile design extends to its size too: it’s sized for your everyday carry essentials without being conspicuous, and is even available in a smaller 11“ size for an even tighter setup. But flip open the magnetic flap and YKK zippered opening and you’ll discover NutSac built this messenger bag to be unique: with internal MOLLE webbing that makes up their CMC (”Convert. Modify. Carry.“) system. This modular bag system lets you to customize the bag with “mods” which extend its capacity and usability with detachable accessories.

One functional addition to the CMC system is a waxed canvas Admin Pouch, with three stash pockets and a dedicated space to store smaller EDC items like knives, tools, small tech, and other accessories. If you don’t want to take up too much space with bags within bags, you can also opt for the classy leather caddy, which adds organizational (and protective) space for key EDC essentials to the bag without the bulk. NutSac is planning on adding more modular accessories for this bag, including a 13" laptop sleeve for extra protection while you’re on the go.

Each NutSac bag is hand sewn in the USA, and the beautiful full-grain leather they use throughout their construction comes from a small tannery in New England. The end result is a bag you’ll be proud to have at your side, backed by a lifetime warranty and a money-back guarantee for satisfaction by its creators. With the NutSac TacSac 13, you can have discreet everyday bag with all the toughness of a tactical heritage. And for a limited time only, make sure to use code EDC2020 and get $10 off your purchase of $100 this holiday season, with free shipping too.

Trending: Spyderco BaliYo Wing

When you hear the word “balisong”, you might think of the popular butterfly-style knife from the Philippines. And, while these blades are usually meant for self-defense, some of their other features are useful for harmless fun as well. “Flipping” a balisong is both a skillful and fidget-friendly practice which lets the user display their dexterity. Of course, getting to the point where you can use a balisong and perform tricks with it takes quite a bit of practice. This is why trainers like the Spyderco BaliYo exist, giving you all the fun and none of the finger-chopping danger. While the BaliYo is designed to be a pen, its three-pronged construction with weighted handles lets you simulate flipping, allowing you to practice and fidget with safety. The Wing is an improved version of the original BaliYo, featuring wider handles with longitudinal slots that give it better stability, durability, and ergonomics. The pen measures 4.25“, weighs less than 1 ounce and it features a wire pocket clip, making it easy to carry. Finally, as a nod to an EDC favorite, the BaliYo can take the Fisher Space Pen ink cartridge as its refill. Get it in one of its three different color combinations in the link below.

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 on select at items 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.

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.
