Trending: KeyBar JR Key Organizer

Trending: KeyBar JR Key Organizer

Keys can get messy inside your pockets. They might jingle around, get caught with other gear and sometimes even hurt you or make you uncomfortable when they move to the wrong position. One of the best answers for this issue is using a key organizer like the KeyBar JR. It sets itself apart with its simple design and durable body. Made in the USA, the KeyBar JR is composed of two plates made from aircraft grade aluminum, making it suitable to withstand heavy duty daily use other organizers would shy away from. These aluminum plates are held together by two screws at either end, and hold washers and o-rings to help you post your keys and adjust tension. The KeyBar JR, as its name suggests, is a smaller, more compact version of the original KeyBar, measuring a little over 3“ and weighing less than 2 oz. Out of the box, it can hold 4-5 keys, with an extension screw set that allows you to hold up to 28 Keys. Speaking of accessories, KeyBar has a lot of compatible inserts to add even more utility, like a flash drive, a bottle opener, and a screwdriver insert. Consolidate your keys with the KeyBar JR which you can pick up at the link below.

One side features an RFID-protected cavity that accommodates up to four payment cards, and the backside has a special unshielded holder for one payment, access, or public transit card of your choice for hands-free convenience when you’re on the go.

For the prepper who cares about the details, you should know that the A10 Titanium works with Dango’s modular wallet system, which offers tool-free configurability into the mix letting you turn this minimalist wallet into a spacious carrier when needed. Whether you want an additional pocket for cash, a bifold for maximum space while keeping things slim and portable, and a pen holder for always having a writing tool on hand, Dango has you covered with the Titanium Adapt Wallet system.

To sweeten the deal, the A10 Titanium Bifold Pen wallet comes with a newly-designed Dango P01 Titanium Pen, which is compatible with both Schmidt 4889M gel ink refills and the ever-ready Fisher Space Ink refills, too. It’s designed to slow into the built-in attachment point in the wallet, with a paracord lanyard for easy retention. Plus, you get a 48 page notebook as part of the deal, perfectly sized to fit in the wallet so you always have the ability to jot notes and important ideas whenever they come to you.

Leatherman is one of the most trusted brands in multi-tools, so it should come to no surprise that they also make compact, single-piece tools like the Brewzer. As its name implies the Leatherman Brewzer was designed to help you open a bottle of your favorite brew after a long day; however, it’s much more than a bottle opener. At one end of the tool, you’ll find a sturdy pry bar you can leverage with the Brewzer’s 2.45“ length. On the other end is an appropriate bottle-shaped opening that appears to be a keyring slot, but also doubles as a handy nail puller. The bottle opener slot the middle of the tool is shaped to also act as a hex wrench for even more utility. Thanks to machined grooves on either side of the Brewzer, gain extra purchase no matter which task you’re working on. It’s made entirely out of heat-treated stainless steel, so this 0.5 oz tiny tool will be capable of opening thousands of bottles for days to come. You can pick one up for your keychain or your pockets at the link below.

With its Cree XHP-50 LED module, the ThruNite T1 can put out a maximum of 1,500 lumens out the front for three minutes, powered off its single included 1100mAh 18350 battery, rechargeable via its built in micro USB port. Turbo gives you a relatively wide beam, illuminating 335 feet in front of you in a neutral white light that helps you to identify things in the distance with ease. With its easy single button operation, you can swiftly change between Turbo and more efficient options, going all the way down to a Firefly mode that brings the output down to a single lumen for an estimated total runtime of 14 days. For a light that has this much power and versatility, it's astounding that it's only 2.73” in length. You can easily conceal it in your hand or in your pockets, and it's lightweight too at just 45 grams without the battery. And if you take it outdoors out on a hike, you'll appreciate its IPX-8 water resistance. Its aircraft-grade aluminum body can also take a few hits, while a magnetic tailcap in the rear lets you mount it to some metal surfaces for hands-free lighting. Pick one up at the link below.

Customize a Deejo Pocket Knife with MyDeejo

EDC is by nature highly personalized—people not only have different personalities but different needs as well. And it isn’t just the combination of items that we should be able to customize. Why not the tools themselves? Pocket knives in particular can be tough to dial in, with plenty to consider from how it performs, to how it looks, and much more. So why shouldn’t you be able to build your knife from the blade (or the hilt) up?

MyDeejo is the unique online customization service offered by Deejo. Here, you get the advantages of a slim and sleek Deejo knife paired with hundreds of combinations of options to customize a design that's truly yours. You have a classic, ultra-thin blade of 420 stainless steel with an integrated liner lock to keep the knife strong, but still light. A skeletonized handle also contributes to the weight (or lack thereof), and the holster you get with every purchase makes it perfect for EDC. As for handling, you get easy one-handed deployment thanks to a large pivot and friction opening.

But all this is just what you have to start with. Get on MyDeejo, and you can really start to play. The process is simple—just follow these 5 steps using the site’s 3D interface to build up your dream pocket knife.

Step 1: Choose the size and weight of your Deejo knife. You have three options for this step: 0.53 oz (2.76”), 0.95 oz (3.54”), or 1.31 oz (4.33”).

Step 2: Decide on the finishing of your blade. You can choose between mirror, titanium, or black titanium.

Step 3: Select your handle. You can go with naked, color, carbon fiber, or wood.

Step 4: “Tattoo” your Deejo. The customization tool lets you play with over 60 illustrations so you can tailor your knife to your personality. These illustrations include tribal patterns, art deco, animal themes, outdoor and location themes, and more. Even today tattoos are being added, so check out new designs like "chef," "shark," "corsair," and "good luck."

Step 5: Engrave. Make this blade truly unique to you (or for a special someone) by specifying a name or phrase to engrave onto the handle.

Step 6: Order and enjoy. You’ll have noticed that the price changes with your customizations, so you get real-time updates on the value of your knife. So finalize your design with the 5 steps above, hit “Order,” fill up the necessary information, and wait for your Deejo to be arrive at your doorstep. Then show it off as your unique-to-you EDC.

You can step up your own EDC with the unique flair a customized knife from MyDeejo affords, or you can whip up the perfect gift for that special person in your life. Check out how to customize a Deejo pocket knife with MyDeejo at the link below.

Aer Travel Sling 2

Aer Travel Sling 2

Whether your travels take you to places near or far, the new Aer Travel Sling 2 features a design that’s sized just right, with features that keep all of your essentials close at hand. And with its versatile carry options, it can be your regular go-to bag even if your most frequent travel destinations lie at either ends of your work commute. Its sleek, minimal, and low-profile design won’t make you stand out from a crowd, and its understated elegance makes it appropriate for more dressy situations at the office too. If you’re in the market for a new tech-friendly everyday carry sling bag, the Aer Travel Sling 2 should be at the top of your list this year.

Unlike a lot of bags earmarked for travel on the market, the Aer Travel Sling 2 isn't too big and bulky for the times when you aren't trying to one-bag it abroad. It has 12 liters of capacity for your essentials, and comes with a well-considered design that helps you use that space wisely. It starts with the padded laptop sleeve with a soft lining that cushions up to a 16" laptop or tablet computer.

The main compartment also features lots of internal organization spaces including mesh and zip pockets that allow you to keep smaller gear, accessories, and tech items from flopping around the bag as you move from place to place. And for your quick access needs, there's a small dedicated pocket on the exterior of the bag that can keep your travel documents, payment cards, and other critical items ready within reach at a moment's notice.

Of course the design of any sling bag means it's easier to take off and access compared to a standard backpack, and the Aer Travel Sling 2 brings it up a notch with its versatile sling strap that allows you to adjust its length for either crossbody sling or single shoulder use. For extra security on the go you can tighten things up and keep the bag close to your body, cinching up the external buckles to reduce the bag's footprint. And for the time when you can finally take this bag with you on your next flight, the built-in luggage pass through integrates with ease with your luggage routine.

Wherever your travels take you, the Travel Pack 2 is built to last, made with Aer’s signature use of water-resistant 1680D CORDURA nylon for the exterior, YKK zippers, and Duraflex hardware, for a comprehensive and robust construction inside and out.

The Aer Travel Sling 2 is one of the best compact everyday carry slings you can buy right now, whether you plan to use it when the airways open up again or you’re looking for a smart and versatile option for your daily commute. Check it out at the link below.
