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 carry small items in your EDC, you might find it inconvenient when they get jumbled in your pockets or lost in your bag or pack. Small storage boxes like the CountyComm Ultem Slide Box have that use case in mind. This small storage box has what you need to store small tools, bits, coins, and even medicine when you need it. And because it features Ultem material, it sports a unique look that's super strong and lightweight for your everyday carry.

The CountyComm Ultem Slide Box features a slide top and a small container for everyday essentials. If you need to get more familiar with Ultem, it's the common name for polyetherimide synthetic material. Ultem is semi-transparent, with a distinct yellow-orange look. It's a high-strength plastic that can stand up to extreme temperatures. And compared to a metal box of the same size, the Ultem Slide Box is extremely lightweight, tipping the scales at just 0.65 ounces.

Decorating the exterior of the case is a topographic design etched into the Ultem material. It adds a touch of class while letting you quickly identify the small items you can place inside the 1.79” long box. And inside, you can place necessary items like daily medicine, small eyeglass screws, hex bits, coins, and whatever else you need to fit inside without getting lost inside a large pants pocket or your EDC sling bag.

What we like: This tiny and lightweight slide box lets you carry tiny everyday carry essentials without worrying about losing them in a larger container. And its Ultem construction matches with many EDC pocket knives and pens released over the past year, letting you coordinate your looks with items made from the same material.

What to watch out for: The CountyComm Ultem Slide Box is not watertight, but the lid is secured with detents to prevent you from losing it during regular use.

Final verdict: If you're in the market for a small and lightweight way to carry little EDC essentials, carrying a small organizer case like the CountyComm Ultem Slide Box is vital.
