Lever Gear BitVault

When it comes to EDC hassles, size and storage are two of the biggest culprits, for unfortunately the opposite reasons. Big tools are the most useful but also take up the most space, while smaller essentials are harder to organize and find in your pockets. Lever Gear sought out to solve both of these problems in one fell swoop. With the BitVault, they've designed a way to let you carry and use a bit kit conveniently, while also giving you an organized space to stash other small, hard-to-carry essentials. With the BitVault's sleek and compact form factor that slips right into your pocket or onto your keyring, your important tools are always within reach.

At its core, the BitVault is a compact container that carries either a bit set or small essentials like pills or emergency cash, with removable tray dividers to configure storage as needed. It comes with a uni-body construction 3.13” long made from aluminum alloy, with a sealed, watertight compartment to secure its contents. The flat, rectangular form factor works with the included clip so the BitVault can lay flush in your pocket, with a tail end carabiner-style slot that lets you attach a keyring as a secondary carry option. And of course, a hex bit slot on the top drives the bits it's carrying, letting the BitVault itself act as a handle for a better grip. The whole package carries light at a little over an ounce, with enough room in its storage for 11cm³ worth of items, striking a good balance for EDC.

Whether you need a compact tool kit for everyday tasks, a rugged emergency stash, or an easier way to carry your smallest EDC items, Lever Gear's BitVault has space to spare. Pick one up in black or gray at the Amazon link below.

Lever Gear BitVault and BitLight

In an ideal situation, you have every tool you need at your disposal at any time. But as EDCers, we know it's not that simple. Some tools are large and cumbersome, while smaller essentials can get lost in your bag or pockets. So when Lever Gear, prolific makers of actual pocketable tools, sought to solve this dilemma, they ended up creating the CLiP system: Carry, Light, and Protect. They've just launched the first tools of the line, the BitVault and BitLight, making it easier than ever to make the most of your pockets.

At their core, the BitVault and BitLight are compact containers that carry either a bit set or small essentials like pills or emergency cash. Both have a uni-body construction made from aluminum alloy, with a sealed, watertight compartment to store your stuff. The flat form factor works with an included clip so the tools can lay flush in your pocket, with a tail end carabiner-style slot that lets you attach a keyring as well as a hex bit slot on the top so the body can be used as a screwdriver. As the name suggests, the BitLight differs from the BitVault by trading some internal space for a couple of LEDs. You can charge the light from any USB source, and it outputs 10 floody lumens across 3 levels for emergency or task lighting in a pinch.

Whether you need a compact tool case for your projects, a rugged emergency stash, or an easier way to carry your smallest EDC items, Lever Gear's new CLiP system has space to spare. They've just launched the project on Kickstarter at the link below, so you have plenty of time to pledge and customize the right tool for yourself.
