AceBeam TK16 High CRI

AceBeam TK16 High CRI

It’s starting to get ridiculous what you can get out of an affordable EDC light. What used to be enthusiast, specialist (meaning expensive) features like rarer metals or good LED tints are now becoming commonplace, offering exceptional combinations of performance and value. Not so long ago a compact, high-CRI, multi-LED flashlight at an affordable price was unheard of. Today, the AceBeam TK16 makes flashlight dreams come true, with solid features, a choice of hardware to suit your needs, and a great price for a light that’s the smallest it can be.

At only 2.61“ long, the TK16 doesn’t take up much space, giving it a compact profile in hand or attached to your pocket or gear. But even with a small footprint it manages to pack plenty of useful features, starting with a triple emitter design (in three configurations) that gives it your choice of power, throw, or in the model featured here, high CRI by way of 3 x Luminus SST-20 LEDs nested in TIR optics for a floody beam. With a rating of 95+ CRI, this means that the TK16 gives one of the most naturally accurate and eye-pleasing beam tints on the market. Its six modes are controlled via a tail electronic switch, including a 1,250-lumen Turbo (on the included 16340 battery, before stepping down) and  the always-useful 0.5-lumen Moonlight mode, both of which have shortcuts for instant access. While the tail is an uncommon place to find an electronic switch which is usually on the side, the good news is it’s in a recessed space so the TK16 can still tailstand for candle operation.

The TK16’s two-piece body is built from anodized aluminum alloy, and screws together in a nice seal thanks to premium anodized square threads and its o-ring. A specific IPX rating isn’t provided, but Acebeam states that the light is capable of resisting 2 meters submerged in water and 1 meter of impact. The body tube features big, chunky knurling for grip, while a detachable gold-plated clip takes care of attached or pocket carry. It’s a light carry at 1.31 ounces without its battery, making it a prime candidate for EDC.

The AceBeam TK16 is the very definition of a flashlight punching above its weight, with plenty of enthusiast features without the associated price tag. Pick up the SST-20 high-CRI version at the link below, where you can also check out the other LED options for sale.

Rogue Industries Front Pocket Wallet

With all their varied shapes and sizes, sometimes getting all our gear, accessories, and apparel to work well together is an exercise in forcing a square peg down a round hole. Take wallets, for example, where the common rectangular shape is meant to fit a rectangular pocket, and for many pants—especially the front pocket of jeans—the shape doesn’t quite line up. To solve this square wallet, round pocket dilemma, Rogue Industries produced and patented their Front Pocket Wallet. With its unique shape, premium materials, and US-made construction, the wallet provides a sleek and comfortable option for your everyday essentials.

A smooth, rounded edge gives the Rogue Front Pocket its distinct form factor. The design allows the wallet to sit flush against the rounded contour of its namesake, your front pants pocket. The shape, paired with a 0.25“ thickness, gives it a slim and discreet profile, minimizing bulge while maximizing its utility. It’s compact at 5” x 3.4“ and lightweight at only 1.6 ounces, making it a solid EDC option.

You have the option of two designs for your Front Pocket: 6 slots that can hold up to 12 cards, or 3 slots that hold 6 cards along with an ID window on the right panel, with the billfold and stash pocket up top. Either option can be made from your choice of American Bison or Moose Leather. Wallets from the Bison and Moose collections in particular are made in Maine, USA, to boot. Both materials have exceptional durability that will develop a patina unique to its user over time, with the added bonus of RFID protection.

The Rogue Industries Front Pocket Wallet’s thoughtful design, robust fit and finish, and craftsmanship gives you a sound everyday option that solves a common everyday conundrum. Build your perfect Front Pocket Wallet in your choice of style, material, and initial customization at Rogue Industries’ site at the link below, with a special offer of 15% off your order with code EDC15.

Hazard 4 Hibachi Sling

Hazard 4 Hibachi Sling

A good bag is an essential part of many EDC’s, but sometimes even daypacks can become cumbersome to carry around all day. When you need to keep it light and versatile a sling might be the way to go, but most slings aren't made to carry anything bigger than a wallet and your keys. That's where the Hazard 4 Hibachi sling sets itself apart. Not only is it tough enough to handle most harsh conditions, you can also customize the main compartment to fit your needs.

The Hazard 4 Hibachi sling pulls no punches. It features a Cordura 1000D nylon construction and YKK zippers meant to take a beating in the field, so you know it can survive EDC. The molded exterior helps it to maintain a “no-flap” aerodynamic shape perfect for motorcycle riders while also providing even more protection for the gear inside. Most slings have a thin strap that can get uncomfortable with heavier loads. That isn't the case with the Hibachi's wide, padded shoulder strap. A second cross-body strap gives you even better stability when you need it, and best of all it doesn't get in the way of functionality. You can still swing it from back to chest to access your gear in a pinch thanks to a quick-access side zipper.

The outside of the bag might feature MOLLE-compatible webbing for further customization, but the inside of the bag is just as versatile. It has a velcro backing so you can attach as many pouches and organizers as you can fit while still having room for up to a 15-inch laptop. Specialized accessory pouches are sold separately and allow you to carry everything you’d need from a photoshoot to a day at the range. By default, the Hibachi sling comes with a solid multiple-use EDC divider that should be perfect for most people. You can use it to organize smaller accessories like pens, tablets, or multitools in a way that keeps it accessible and separate from larger items.

Slings are becoming more popular, but few are improving on functionality in the way that the Hazard 4 Hibachi sling does. If you’re in the market for a versatile way to carry everything from shooting gear to photography equipment and then some, make sure to pick one of these up for yourself by clicking the link below.
