Few materials get better over time, and leather is one of them. In addition to picking up an awesome looking patina, it gets softer and easier to use the more you carry it. It's an ideal material for certain EDC gear because of its natural durability and ease to work with. The increasingly popular gear caddy is an excellent example of this, leveraging leather's versatility to accommodate essentials of all shapes and sizes in a variety of pocket layouts. In this guide, we're highlighting caddies crafted from premium leathers sourced from some of the best and oldest tanneries in existence. Read on to take a look at some handsome leather options for organizing and carrying your EDC that'll only get better the more you carry them.

Hitch and Timber EDC Card Caddy

Its minimalist design cuts down on bulk while keeping all your gear securely held together in your pocket. There’s even a metal grommet/lanyard built into the top so you can quickly retrieve it from your pocket.

I have several Hitch & Timber units and they are superb. Over time they really soften up to a really nice, flexible leather (mind you I condition mine when I rotate them every so often).
