It's a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.

If you’ve been following the site for a while, you might have heard us talking about the advantages of adding a key organizer or two to your EDC kit. Standard key organizers group your keys in a compact, efficient way so they aren’t left loose and jingling around in your bag or pocket. The Keyport Slide 4.0, however, takes things to a whole other level as a premium, all-steel organizer that consolidates your keys, pocket tools, and smart tech into a single universal access device.

The Limited Edition Slide 4.0 takes everything that made the original 2007 Slide great and enhances it with new materials, a new design, and added functionality. Its most basic use is to house duplicates of your keys using Keyport’s proprietary Key Blades, which replace your existing keys. These Key Blades deploy and retract seamlessly, thanks to stainless steel nodes. But the Slide’s modularity is what truly sets it apart from the rest. Simply snap on a module or two, and your key organizer becomes an indispensable multi-tool. It also features a polished stainless steel removable bezel and a removable D-ring for attaching loose items. Two material options are available: 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum and grade 5 titanium. Its ultra-compact 2.87” size makes it easy to access and operate with one hand.

Keyport also has a solution if you misplace your Slide. The Slide 4.0 LE1 comes with a free two-year subscription to their KeyportID lost and found service, which allows anyone who finds your lost Keyport to contact you directly while keeping it anonymous for both sides.

What we like: It’s part hi-tech key case, Swiss Army knife, and multi-tool. There’s very little not to love about that.

What to watch out for: Each Slide only carries four keys. And you’ll have to bring Keyport’s Key Blades with you to a blacksmith to have your keys duplicated.

Final verdict: The Keyport Slide 4.0 LE1 successfully combines utility, convenience, security, and style into a fully modular multi-device to suit any EDC lifestyle.

Been using a slide since 2011 after finding them on stumbleupon. Best thing to happen to my edc. I’ve tried other key organizers and always come back to the slide. And from the slide 2 it’s been the only thing I carry for my keys. It’s hands down the best and after the pocket clip you can add to the side, makes the whole thing that much more streamlined in your pocket carry. Don’t question if you’ll love it because you will!

Been using KP slide 3.0’s for 3 years now with my Kawasaki Z650, it’s nice not to have to deal with keys jabbing into my legs, or worry about dangling keys marring the paint job. At first I thought reducing my daily carry to 4 keys would be limiting, but using a Kwikset smart key padlock, I was easily able to condense it down to only using 2 of the 4 daily, and my other two about once a week usually. Already ordered my 4.0 LE1s so I can match the rest of the titanium in my EDC.
Big metal block in your pocket. With 4 keys. OK.
Locksmith not blacksmith. That’s something I would write. Lol
