Carved Everyday Bundle

If you haven’t heard of Carved before, you’re missing out on some of the most unique and actual one-of-a-kind accessories you can pick up for your phone and your apparel. Their artisans craft vibrant designs combining wood burl and resin, resulting in exceptional patterns you won’t find anywhere else. As an excellent showcase of their products, their Everyday Bundle gives you three products, each made together from the same materials for a thematic set. It includes their premium folding pocket knife with a Damascus steel blade and titanium framelock handle, a minimalist wallet that can hold 1-5 cards and cash, and their signature bracelet with an adjustable wax cord. The Everyday Bundle comes in a special gift box to highlight the matching design and is a perfect way to dive into Carved’s products.

Vital Carry Torque Driver

Designer and machinist Bobby Davis of Vital Carry has been building EDC accessories for years, specializing in pocketable pens, tools, and canisters. His latest product is the Torque Driver, a 3” bolt-action magnetic bit holder built from aluminum, brass, and copper. It lets you carry and use your bits in style and use them efficiently, thanks to generous knurling to give you a secure grip. And when you’re done, a bolted clip lets you stash the Torque Driver in your pocket, ready for the next job. His Kickstarter campaign is already fully funded with a little under two weeks to go, so check it out to get in on the early-bird discounts for your driver choice.

Flint and Tinder Flannel-lined Waxed Trucker Jacket

Flint and Tinder’s bestselling jacket is every bit the iconic trucker jacket and more, with a thoughtful selection of premium materials to elevate it even further as a daily essential. The USA-made jacket’s exterior is weather-resistant Martexin 7 oz sailcloth sourced from New Jersey, waxed on both sides for protection, warmth, and insulation. It’s designed to develop a patina unique to its wearer, with folds and creases telling your personal story.

The jacket’s body and sleeves are lined with blanket flannel for maximum comfort. On the utility side, you get two hand pockets, an exterior chest pocket, and an interior media pocket to cover your carry bases. The jacket is cut, sewn, and finished in Los Angeles, and you can pick it up in plenty of sizes and colors from Huckberry at the link below.

Huckberry x Chaco Tarpon Collection

Chacos are a household name for outdoor sandals. They’ve teamed up with our friends at Huckberry for a line honoring the legendary saltwater game fish with its prehistoric ties and immense strength. The Tarpon Collection covers two Chaco signature models, the 7/1 and the Chillos. Chaco gives them an exclusive custom design that honors the Tarpon and displays its scales in a vibrant blue gradient across each model’s webbing.

The 7/1 is Chaco’s signature adventure shoe, with polyester webbing wrapping around your foot and the midsole for a perfect fit and a comfy LUVSEAT polyurethane footbed for maximum comfort. The Chillos is for relaxing when you get home, with a slide design for easy on, easy off casual use, and a blown-EVA midsole that floats in water if they slip off your feet. Both made-in-the-USA sandals are available exclusively from Huckberry at the link below.

Osprey Sportlite Daypack

Osprey has made a name for themselves with their fully-featured outdoor and hiking packs. And while it’s easy just to stack functionality into a do-it-all bag, sometimes the best move is to dial things back and keep it simple. Their new Sportlite Daypacks are minimal technical offerings that maximize their simple and focused feature set. The two main pillars of the Sportlite line are comfort and sustainability.

The former comes from an Atilon foam framesheet that evenly distributes the load, paired with mesh-covered ridged foam with a center air channel for ventilation. Vented EVA shoulder straps with spacer mesh and an adjustable sternum strap ensure a locked-in, comfortable carry. The Sportlite’s sustainable construction comes from bluesign® approved 100D recycled high tenacity bird eye nylon, offering durability while staying lightweight. Stretch side water bottle pockets a whistle on the sternum strap, and a removable waistbelt rounds out its features. Check out the Sportlite in 15, 20, 25, and 30-liter capacities and a handful of colorways from Osprey at the link below.
