Mission Critical System 01 Baby Carrier

Preparing for and equipping yourself for the daily tasks and trials life throws your way is the very purpose of EDC. That said, some essentials need extra special care. It’s one thing to carry tools for handling quick fixes or chores, but packing and caring for your loved ones—especially the little ones—is a whole other undertaking entirely. After all, there’s no mission more critical than the safety and protection of your family, and that's where Mission Critical comes in. Mission Critical is here to help with their baby carrier and product line designed from the ground up for dads. With a collection of intuitively designed baby carriers, integrated bags, and pouches, they'll help you prepare for any parenting adventure.

Taking cues from robust, mil-spec bags, Mission Critical’s flagship System 01 Baby Carrier (S.01) comes with the fit, finish, and features of your favorite tactical backpack. From 1000D nylon construction to MOLLE-compatible webbing, this carrier means business. The carrier itself is designed to fit babies from approximately 8-35 pounds with your baby facing either inward or outward depending on their stage of development. Its simple design allows dad to put it on and secure baby in 4 simple steps. Features include a removable and washable liner for any surprises and a stowable sun shade for extended days out. The S.01 fits like a vest so the weight is mostly on the shoulders where it’s most comfortable for dad.

One of the S.01’s standout features is its MOLLE system on the front and back of the carrier, allowing full customization and expansion. The back panel seamlessly integrates with Mission Critical’s Daypack Zip, a 24L backpack that, when loaded, creates an evenly balanced load front to back. It carries all your parenting essentials along with an easily accessible magnetic changing pad, stowable padded shoulder straps, and an insulated pocket for bottles, in addition to internal organization.

Mission Critical also makes multiple backpacks, bags, and a messenger-style diaper bag all designed with the same fit, finish, and compatibility with the S.01. Unique features include the Diaper Bag with easy top access and a magnetic buckle, the large 27L backpack with an integrated sleeve for your laptop, and the Rolltop Backpack offering a more secure main compartment while still designed as a convenient travel partner. The entire product line is available in 3 colors: Coyote, Black, and Gray, allowing you to mix and match with your existing gear. And of course, all of Mission Critical’s products with MOLLE webbing are compatible with their expansion packs and pouches, as well as ones you may already own in your EDC.

Mission Critical’s S.01 Baby Carrier is built from the ground up to help you be the best (and most prepared) dad ever.

Titaner Blue Bolt Action Pen

"This bolt-action pen from Titaner is made from CNC-machined titanium, and features a multi-tone blue anodized tone that’s reminiscent of the finish on raku pottery. Its retracting mechanism fits Parker refills, and there’s an emergency glass breaker tool on..." (via The Awesomer)

There are tiny knifes, and then there are tiny knives. And for today's Tiny Tuesday, we take a look at uncommon Boker Plus knife that pushes the boundaries of a useful compact knife. The DW-1 pulls double duty within its sub-3" frame. Its 1" blade comes with a surprisingly robust workhorse AUS-8 steel in a versatile wharncliffe shape, making the most out of the space to offer the longest edge possible and adding piercing utility as well. A stainless steel framelock built into one side of the handles secures the blade while in use, and also comes with the DW-1's second functionality, a wide clip to use as a cash stash. Opposite the money clip is a grooved Zytel scale, and a lanyard hole completes your EDC options. Check out Boker Plus's tiny performer at the link below.

This week’s Minimalist Monday features a versatile favourite with a great balance of form and function. Custom maker Alan Folts had in his mind to help people learn about knives as tools, and created the CRKT Minimalist with utility in the forefront. Designed with ergonomics in mind, the Minimalist is a full tang 5Cr13Mov knife that comes in a variety of blade shapes for every occasion, all of which come at an average of 2” in length. Sheathed in Zytel, it works well as a neck knife or in the pocket alike. The handle is contoured to afford a secure 3-finger grip, and a lanyard helps with added purchase for larger hands. Jimping along the thumb ramp and linen Micarta scales finish off the package. A compact blade that fits in the hand like nothing else, its popularity for EDC comes to no surprise. Check it out at the link below.
