Tactile Turn Side Click

Just about everyone loves a good clicky ballpoint pen for everyday carry. Aside from its practicality, the click mechanism represents a bit of fidgety fun you can have as you go about your business. But while you’re sure to be familiar with the standard rear-click pen, you might find it interesting to know that side click pen mechanisms exist too. With these great EDC pens, the side placement of the click mechanism makes for easy actuation without having to completely change your grip on the pen. The new Tactile Turn Side Click Pen features an ultra-snappy all-metal side click pen design that’s entirely made in Texas, making it a sleek, solid new addition to your stationery EDC.

Like all of Tactile Turn’s line of everyday carry pens, the Side Click maintains the elegant, simple, and sleek minimal lines that the brand and chief designer Will Hodges is known for. Similar to their highly-successful Bolt Action Pen, the Side Click actuates as it sounds, via a click mechanism on its side. Unlike off-the-shelf click mechanisms though, the Side Click’s is made entirely of metal, giving it a satisfying snappiness in click response when deploying the pen. Like the internals the exterior of the pen is made of metal, and it’s available in three premium materials: titanium, copper, bronze, and zirconium.

It’s also available in the length of your choice, from the standard 5.8 inch long model all the way down to a smaller 4.6 inch everyday carry mini note taker. If you’re looking to add a unique touch of flair, you can get the clip upgraded to a snazzy titanium Damascus attached to the body with two Torx screws for a secure fit. Custom engraving available on either side of the pen allows you to make it your own. And as far as actual use for writing, the addictive click mechanism and the wide variety of compatible ink cartridges makes the Side Click a joy to use.

The high-quality innovative Side Click is more than your next daily driver EDC pen, it’s built to last and passed on to the future. But while you have it in your hands, you’ll have a blast writing with it and fidgeting with the side click mechanism for years to come. Check out more details about what makes the Tactile Turn Side Click pen so unique and well-suited for your own set of everyday carry gear and buy one today at the link below.

Streamlight Flipmate

Streamlight Flipmate

If you’re in a profession that requires reliable and strong illumination in your work area, or simply want a robust, yet compact work light to be a part of your EDC, the new Streamlight Flipmate may be for you. More than a traditional cylindrical flashlight, the Flipmate is designed to deploy light from any angle. With a unique form factor and an innovative flip system to illuminate exactly where needed, this new member of the Streamlight Work Light family is a portable workhorse for your next project.

The Flipmate comes with a magnetic base and a folding light bar that rotates up to 270 degrees for directional flexibility, offering accessible and versatile area lighting. The bar comes with two LED types across four modes: The cool white LEDs in the center provide the higher output bright white light, delivering 500 lumens for 2.5 hours on High, and 250 lumens for 5.75 hours on Low. On the edges of the light bar are high CRI LEDs with Streamlight’s own Color-Rite technology, providing a daylight-like tint that allows you to better distinguish colors. This helps with differentiating paint or wire colors while at a work site, and as a bonus, provides natural-looking light for photos and videos. These lights can run at 400 lumens for 2.5 hours on High, and at 200 lumens for 6 hours on Low, the latter providing a good option for when you need illumination for a long duration, such as when at camp or during emergency situations.

Strong and long-lasting light output, two types of LEDs and four lighting options, plus a portable chassis weighing 8.7 ounces make the Streamlight Flipmate a good option for EDC. It’s something you can easily keep in your bag or even your pocket. It also comes in three color options for matching the rest of your kit: black, blue and red. And for those who like to bring a camera along, its multi-mode lighting functions as a compact and reliable light source that can help enhance your pictures or videos. If you’re looking for a compact, long-running, and reliable work light for EDC, check out the Streamlight Flipmate at the link below.

Dango EDC Tray

For the father with a good EDC setup but no real place to park all of it when he gets back home, or for the one just starting to build his own, wallet and EDC goods supplier Dango has a few items they have hand picked to cater well to all types of recipients for this coming Father’s Day. Between a desk accessory where he can store and show off his carry and essential accessories to help him carry smarter and better, we hope you’ll find the perfect gift for Dad below.

Foremost in their list is the EDC Tray with DTEX Pads. If your dad is one who believes in the adage: “a place for everything and everything in its place,” this would be right up his alley. This tough and durable aluminum tray is precision CNC-machined in the United States from solid billet, and gives Dad a place to unload his pocket payload at the end of the day. Four separate compartments provide dedicated spaces for his EDC essentials, letting him store and organize his pen, phone, wallet, watch, keys, and others in a neat and tidy way. Each compartment has a cut-to-fit removable DTEX pad that affords his gear some extra protection and cushioning, while the tray’s inherent heft and anti-slip rubber pads keeps all of it firmly in place and safe from accidental bumps in the night. Speaking of which, integrated cable management routing and cutouts maintain the organized and uncluttered look while he charges his gadgets overnight. With its sturdy build and industrial design, this solid catch-all is a great way to store and display his all of his cool EDC gear.

If Dad still has some gaping holes in his daily carry, what better to populate his Dango EDC Tray with than some cool everyday carry staples from the same brand? Here are some suggestions on what to fill his tray—and pockets—with, as a great start to an awesome EDC setup.

Dango Maverick M1 Rail Wallet: Highly functional and innovative wallets are what put Dango on the map, and the Maverick M1 Rail Wallet presents a new minimalist take on the traditional badge or ID holder. It can hold up to 9 cards with its combination of an RFID protected back cavity for sensitive cards, and a quick-release mechanism on the front that makes it easy to access and present others—such as badges, IDs, building access cards, or public transit cards. A silicone band helps keep everything together, and lets Dad carry loose cash or some additional cards in an easily accessible way.

Dango Chassis Clip (For all M1 Wallets): This accessory clip screws securely onto the chassis of their M-series wallets, expanding capacity by holding up to 10 bills folded in half, and increasing functionality by providing a bottle opener and the ability to attach your wallet to you belt or bag strap, thus providing quick access to your cash and cards. This makes it a perfect complement for the intended use of the M1 Rail Wallet, and is an easy upgrade that makes your Father’s Day gift instantly better.

Dango Capsule Wide: This waterproof and food-safe container lets Dad easily carry and organize small everyday items like medication, spare keys, loose change, memory cards, and mints. At 58mm wide and 21mm thick, it’s small yet spacious enough for some first aid essentials or even some fishing bait and small outdoor gear, should Dad be more adventure-inclined. The removable stainless steel clip and integrated loophole provide multiple carry options, letting this multi-purpose storage capsule clip onto a belt or bag strap, be easier to retrieve via an attached lanyard, or get secured onto other gear using tethers or slings.

Dango Coin Capsule: This very modern take on the classic coin carrier or purse lets Dad carry up to $5.44 in a combination of quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies. The handy 60mm x 27mm aluminum container perfectly complements any of Dango’s sleek-looking wallets, and the integrated belt clip spares him from the now unnecessary pocket bulk and jangle, letting him carry his coins in an organized, accessible, and silent way.

Dango DV-01 Dive Watch: This stainless steel timepiece packs all the wrist presence a dignified man deserves, with its 45mm wide case, sapphire crystal, luminescent dial, and patented interchangeable lugs that let Dad easily swap bracelets and straps, tailoring the look to any occasion. Beyond aesthetics, the fully functional rotating bezel, 200 meters of water resistance, and a Swiss Ronda Quartz Movement that runs on a 45-month battery provide him with the performance to match.

Treat Dad (and maybe yourself as well) to a whole new EDC setup this Father's Day by taking advantage of a 20% savings on the Dango EDC Tray--as well as all the other goodies listed here--using the code FD20 on their website on checkout. Get started on the generosity with the link below.

CIVIVI Mini Bullmastiff

CIVIVI Mini Bullmastiff

Pocket flippers with their rapid deployment and general fidget-friendliness have become one of the most popular choices for EDC. Every year, a slew of designs get introduced, bringing the style into even more pockets and setups. What sets CIVIVI’s new Mini Bullmastiff apart is its choice of blade style. Its stonewashed cleaver-style blade snaps out via flipper tab thanks to the smooth bearings in the pivot and the leverage provided by the weight of the blade itself. If you’re a fan of flippers then this is the chopper’s choice for your next EDC.

Make no mistake about it, that 3" long and 1.5" tall blade is a big—even aggressive—EDC choice and provides you with a lot of slicing and chopping power, especially for food preparation and outdoor tasks. It’s flat ground from 9Cr18MoV, a higher-end, yet still affordable stainless steel with high corrosion- and wear-resistance, as well as great edge retention—perfect for a knife that’s built for utility out in the field. A built-in finger choil lets you choke up on the blade during use, providing an alternative grip for when you want a bit more precision and control.

There’s ample room on its 4.25" handle for a secure purchase and comfortable ergonomics. It features a lanyard hole for optional cordage, while a color-matched backspacer stabilizes the flow-through design. Retracting the blade is a simple disengagement of a liner lock mechanism, built into skeletonized liners to save weight. Overall, the knife offers a simple and utilitarian look, accented by the fuller-like groove that runs down the length of the blade, another weight-saving technique.

The textured but otherwise unadorned G10 handle scales further enhance the pragmatic look. Only the CIVIVI logo on the show side pivot cap provides a subtle form of branding on the knife. On the flipside, a skeletonized and reversible deep-carry pocket clip provides you two practical ways to carry the Mini Bullmastiff: use it to clip the knife onto the hem of your pants or bag pocket, or string it up with a lanyard for easy access from deep in your pocket or pack, better hand retention while in use, and a bit of personalization to make the knife yours.

If you’re looking for the utility of a beefy cleaver blade, but want it portable enough to carry in your pocket or your EDC pack, at 3.5 ounces, the CIVIVI Mini Bullmastiff is a tough and dependable companion like its namesake. Get your own in one of three handle color options: Black, Blue, or OD Green at the link below.
