Wingman: your best friend, your reliable partner, your go-to guy for all your needs. And since its debut in 2011, Leatherman's iconic multitool has become just that. The Wingman packs 14 essentials to solve all your everyday problems. Front and center are Leatherman's signature spring-action pliers, bolstered by two stainless steel handles on each side. A 420HC (high-carbon) stainless steel serrated blade tucks into one side, with a pair of scissors on the other. You also get a hefty complement of drivers and utility tools like a package/bottle opener and wire cutters. All 14 tools fold into a compact package under 10 inches and weighing 7 ounces or about 200 grams. It's not as long nor as heavy as its big brother the Wave (10”/241g) making it more suitable for EDC. A multitool shouldn't ever fail you, and the Wingman is designed not to.

With 21 tools, the SOG PowerAccess Deluxe ensures you'll have everything you need to start your next project. You get the usual suspects like needle-nose pliers, a plain edge blade and different kinds of screwdrivers along with heavier-duty newcomers like a wood saw, a serrated knife, and a jewelry driver. Unique to the PowerAccess Deluxe is its compound leverage system, which multiplies the user’s grip strength while using the pliers, reducing the amount of effort needed for a job well done. It comes in a sleek stealth black in high corrosion resistance 5Cr15Mov stainless steel, with a nylon sheath and 12-piece hex bit kit for an all-in-one DIY and EDC ensemble.

The Ti Pocket Pro is BigIDesign's most compact pen yet, measuring in at just over 4” with a Parker-style refill and a little over a half inch longer with a standard rollerball. It stands out from the pack thanks to its small size and ability to accept over 80 of the most popular pen refills out there. The key is in its tip mechanism: it's almost like the adjustable clutch on the end of a drill. As you tighten the grip, the clutch clamps down onto your refill of choice. The best part? It gets a just-right fit for a secure, wiggle-free writing experience. On the pen there’s also a beefy, ridged grip section, a sturdy pocket clip, and of course, solid grade 5 titanium construction.

Fire is an absolute outdoor and survival essential, but in some cases a disposable lighter you got from the convenience store won’t cut it. It’s not built to take a beating, and the exposed mechanism means it’s prone to evaporating its lighter fluid. True Utility’s FireStash takes care of both problems in an EDC-friendly package. Unscrewing its peanut-shaped, 1.77”, chrome-plated zinc alloy body reveals a tiny lighter mechanism for its primary function, and a neoprene o-ring ensures water stays out (and your lighter fluid stays in). Finally, an included split ring means you can clip it onto your keychain and have a fire at your fingertips at a moment’s notice.

Spyderco’s 5th generation Sage is a staple of the brand and comes with many of its signature features while offering some unique functionality not often seen in its other evergreen models. Up front you get classic Spyderco looks and deployment with an S30V 3” full flat grind leaf-shaped blade with the trademark Round Hole, and this Lightweight model comes with FRN handles with a textured grip pattern. Its Compresison lock layout makes it unique in the brand, with the release along the back like you would see on its big brother the Para Military 2, making it easier to engage without changing your grip too much. Last but not least, a reversible lightweight wire clip allows for ambidextrous carry.

Chances are you carry small essentials in your EDC that you just cannot afford to lose or misplace. A great way to keep something on your person at all times is by carrying it in your keychain, since you’ll need your keys anyway when heading out the house. This is where the Dango Capsule comes in. It’s a small, 0.85“ container designed to keep small items like medication, batteries, and other tiny essentials safe and at the ready. Dango Capsules are precision-machined in the USA out of lightweight 6061 aluminum, and anodized to be food safe, which means it's okay to stash your medication inside without having to worry about metal poisoning or contamination. The capsules are also built waterproof up to 1000 feet. They feature four holes at one end so you can attach a keyring or a lanyard to always keep them by your side.

There’s more than meets the eye with the massive pivot hole in the middle of the Gerber Remix, features that make it worthy as an EDC blade. Thanks to its skeletonized handle design and aluminum construction, this minimalist folding knife stays light on its feet at just 4.2 oz. Its nail nick-deployed, 2.9“ drop point blade made out of high carbon stainless steel gives it an extra layer of protection against corrosion, while being under 3” also makes it legal to carry in more restrictive locales. The hole in the middle of the knife not only serves as a unique design feature but also gives it an additional attachment point for carabiners or lanyards in addition to its pocket clip. This combined with the serration on the blade makes it an ideal companion for climbers and hikers, or as a backup blade for your outdoor kit.

Inspired by Tim Leatherman's original PST, the Rebar features a tool for almost any daily task that you can think of, all of them lockable for extra safety. Starting off with its pliers, the Rebar was optimized for strength and heavy duty use. It features both needlenose and regular pliers for versatility as well as replaceable wire cutters, a first for a Leatherman 4“ tool. As far as cutting tools go, you'll encounter both a plain edge and a serrated knife made with durable 420HC steel, as well as a saw for tougher tasks. In its 11 other tools you'll find three different screwdrivers, a can opener, a bottle opener, an electrical crimper, a wire stripper and a ruler, among others.

Several key features make the Orbitkey Nest stand out from other travel organizers. An embedded wireless Qi charger on one side of the lid makes it easy to keep your phone, AirPods, and other tech topped up while working at your desk. It uses an included high-quality braided USB-C cable to get the job done while keeping your desk uncluttered from unnecessary charging cables. Next to the embedded charger, you have a valet tray section roomy enough for the rest of your essentials, like a slim wallet, keys, and pocket knife, for example. The luxe leather lid is gentle on your gear and helps prevent scratches on your desk while saving space and minimizing clutter, keeping your work environment tidy and efficient. The Nest's hardshell enclosure makes it especially capable as a tech travel organizer as it offers a bit of shock- and crush-resistance for your fragile electronics inside your bag, too.

Among the many robust G-SHOCKS, the MUDMASTER is one of the most resilient watches you can wear and comes in as last month’s most popular EDC pick. It was purpose-built to power its way through work conditions involving–as its name suggests–mud, rubble, and debris. A new vibration-resistant construction lets it stand up to even the most heavy-duty tasks with the most serious machinery. It involves using multiple gaskets to protect pipes that guide its buttons and shafts. The pipes themselves are designed to reinforce against impact, and a sapphire crystal and screw-down crown ensure all the dirt and grime stay out. It’s not all about the construction, though–the MUDMASTER is packed with the best features G-SHOCK offers, including a new V3 Triple Sensor, analog and digital timekeeping, Tough Solar Movement, and even Multiband 6 atomic time adjustment. It’s a powerhouse of a watch and well-deserving of the top spot for July.
