If you've ever tried to put together your own EDC, you'll know how easy it is for all that gear to add up quickly. Covering your bases without having a ton of tools weighing you down is a tricky balancing act, and the key is to consolidate where you can. One way to offload your gear is with multi-purpose tools, like the MecArmy FL10. It's one of the few ways to carry your keys, a few tools, and a flashlight all in one thanks to its unique titanium carabiner design.

Its TC4 titanium build gives the FL10 ideal properties for an EDC carabiner as it's light, strong, corrosion-resistant, and springy. It has a large jaw and a wire swing gate that can accommodate your keychain and attach to your belt loop or bag. A cut-out in the body lets you carry it on a lanyard if you prefer. And the frame itself acts as a multi-tool that includes a pry bar, box opener, and a bottle opener. It's also beefy enough to have enough heft for use as a self-defense tool if it comes down to it. It's built tough, but keep in mind you shouldn't use it for actual climbing because it's not rated to do that.

Out of all the its features, the centerpiece of the FL10 is the 360 lumen CREE XP-G2 LED flashlight built into the frame. Despite its size it can throw that light out to a distance of about 209 feet. A button on the side of the frame controls modes and outputs. It has low, medium, and high, as well as a turbo and strobe mode. For added convenience, the light is micro-USB rechargeable.

With the MecArmy FL10 carabiner flashlight, you can free up space in your pockets. It helps you organize your everyday carry while letting you keep the essentials at hand. Pick one of your yourself and make it a part of your EDC at the link below.
