Gerber Barbill Wallet

EDC is all about having what you need when you need it, but unless you think hard about your carry, chances are you end up with more in your pockets than you’d like. That’s especially true when it comes to your wallet. Every card slot and compartment is another chance to carry more than you need, when in reality you can get away with much less. Gerber's new Barbill minimalist wallet aims to be aims to be both slim and practical with its multifunctional plate-and-band design, and its low price point means you'll have more cash left to carry.

Most slim wallets aren’t cheap, but Gerber knows a thing or two about making quality gear for less than the competition. The Barbill wallet features a stainless steel frame that’s lightweight enough for EDC at 1.7 ounces, yet durable enough to crack open a bottle after a long day with its built-in cap lifter. If you’re one of those people that opens your wallet to find a handful of receipts staring back at you, you won’t have that problem here. This wallet has a max capacity of 7 cards, which is enough to carry what you need without over-stuffing it. There’s also an elastic band for bills so you can still visit your favorite cash-only spot for lunch.

Whether you’re looking to slim down or toughen up your wallet carry, the Gerber Barbill gets the job done. If you want to consolidate your cards and cash (and one of your dozen bottle openers) into something more pocketable without breaking the bank, this might be the wallet for you.

Incase AllRoute Rolltop Backpack

Next time you're getting around in the city, keep your eyes peeled and you'll be sure to see someone sporting a bag made by Incase. They've made a name for themselves in the urban pack market with their sleek, organized, and tech-friendly designs. They're solid options for school, work, and commuting, but what about when you want to get outdoors? Incase finally has an answer for the weekend warriors with their first-ever rolltop, the AllRoute Backpack. Combining the sharp stylings of an urban backpack with the rugged materials and functional features of a hiking pack, it could be the one EDC bag you're looking for to take with you from the city to the mountain and back.

As you’d expect from a bag made by Incase, the AllRoute Rolltop starts with safely transporting up to a 15" laptop. It has its own padded compartment with an easy access zipper along the side. So if you’re packed to the brim with clothes for your weekend trip, you can still get to your laptop at work without needing to re-pack. In the main compartment you’ll get some helpful organization perfect for books or tablets. Its rolltop design also comes in handy if you need to pack a little extra, maxing out at 27L of storage capacity.

Of course, an EDC bag—especially one you'll take outdoors—should also have your back in the rain. The AllRoute Rolltop uses water-resistant materials from the ultra-light ripstop nylon all the way to the zippers. Plus, it’s a rolltop, so just by its design it helps to keep water out from the main compartment. Convenient Fidlock magnetic hardware closes the rolltop shut in a literal snap, giving the classic rolltop a modern touch for ease of use. On the side of the bag you'll get a water bottle pocket so that you can stay hydrated throughout the day. And when you need to carry heavier gear or move quickly, it has a sternum strap to help keep the pack comfortably loaded on your shoulders.

Incase isn't trying to reinvent the wheel with their first rolltop backpack, they're dialing in the essentials: keep water out, protect what you carry, and look good doing it whether you're on the street or up the trail. If this bag checks those three boxes for you, then make sure to click the link below and scoop one up for yourself.

Ekster 3.0: The World's Slimmest Smart Wallet

Tech companies have tried to replace the wallet with your smartphone, but they haven’t succeeded just yet. There just isn’t a practical replacement for one of the most essential items in your EDC. That’s why instead of replacing your wallet with tech, Ekster combines the two. They already have the world's best-selling smart wallet after a wildly successful Indiegogo campaign last year, and now they’re back with the new and improved Ekster 3.0 range of wallets on Kickstarter.

Technology aside, the Ekster 3.0 Parliament Wallet is still a well-made wallet that can hold up to 12 cards and cash across its main sleeve and leather bi-fold section. It’s wrapped in premium leather, has RFID protection, and measures only 0.4” thick. Why keep your bulky, beat-up bifold when you can get something that looks better and weighs less? Accessing your cards is also easier than before thanks to an improved trigger on the bottom that fans out your cards at the top for easy picking.  For those of you who want an even slimmer wallet, there's the Senate Cardholder. It's similar to the trigger-equipped card section of the Parliament, but pared down to accommodate up to 10 cards and measure 0.3” thick. Ekster offers an even slimmer option this campaign with the debut of the Kickstarter exclusive Secretary Cardholder. It's a 0.15" thick traditional cardholder form factor designed to accommodate up to 6 cards, cash, and coins with single-side RFID protection and easy contactless payment.

Ekster has partnered with tracker-company Chipolo to make one of the slimmest item trackers you can get, complete with their own patented solar panel charging tech. It doesn't require direct sunlight to recharge and holds a charge for two months. At 0.09” thick you’ll barely feel the tracker, but you'll be glad it's there if you ever need it. As the first-ever voice-activated smart wallet, you’ll be able to find your lost or stolen wallet anywhere in the world with nothing more than your voice. It's compatible with both the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so asking the voice assistant to locate your phone will set the tracker ringer off and show its last location on a map. If your wallet is still nowhere to be found, Chipolo's worldwide lost & found network spans across the globe to help you find your wallet even when it’s out of Bluetooth range. When any user is within range of your lost item, you receive a GPS update of its location.

Whether you’re looking to slim down your wallet or want to upgrade to something a little more modern, the Ekster 3.0 seems like a great option. Due to the success of their last campaign, the company is offering three new colors to choose from available only to Kickstarter backers. As Ekster is the only smart wallet to have made it past the crowdfunding stage (you might've even seen them at Macy's or online at Huckberry), you can back with confidence. Secure yours at the link below before the campaign ends on November 17th.

Nitecore NTK10 Titanium Utility Knife

If there's one versatile piece of gear you might not be carrying but probably should, it's a utility knife. It's purpose-built to handle everything from breaking down boxes to precision craft work. And since the blade is replaceable, maintenance is just a matter of swapping in a new one when it starts to get dull. But the run-of-the-mill utility knife at your local hardware store might not match the performance and build quality of the rest of your EDC gear. The new NTK10 is the popular flashlight manufacturer Nitecore's take on a utility blade optimized for daily carry. Its durable titanium construction and EDC-focused features make it worthy of a spot in your pockets.

The NTK10's frame is made of precision-machined aerospace-grade titanium alloy, which gives it the durability to stand up to daily heavy-duty use while staying light in your pockets. Fully loaded with its razor-sharp replaceable Japanese OLFA CKB-2 craft utility blade, the NTK10 weighs in at a mere 2.38 ounces. And despite its small 4.5” size, the 30 degree slant on the OLFA blade, combined with its pointed tip, make it quite versatile and able to take on your everyday slicing and piercing tasks with ease. With jimping on both sides of the frame, the NTK10 also lets you get a solid grip to accomplish bigger tasks, even if things get a bit slippery. And with its blade locking mechanism, you also have the assurance that the blade won't retract on you when you're not expecting it as well.

But what truly sets the Nitecore NTK10 apart from the standard utility knife are the extra EDC features built into the frame. The first is the bottle opener built into the tip, ready to go when the blade is fully retracted. The second is the glass breaking tip on the pommel, which makes it a useful tool to have in an emergency rescue situation. And unlike dollar store utility knives, the NTK10 has a removable pocket clip for convenience. If you're looking for a serious upgrade to your current utility knife, the NTK10 might be the right tool for the job. You can grab one at the link below.

WESN Titanium Micro Knife

Sometimes the biggest surprises come from the smallest knives. While it may look like it belongs on your keychain, the WESN Titanium Micro Knife is a bona fide EDC blade, complete with features you wouldn't expect on a knife this small. It doesn't skimp on materials, performance, or carry options. Packing a flipper deployment, pocket clip, titanium scales, and a locking blade that's built for EDC use into its tiny design is no small feat, but the WESN gets the job done.

The entire WESN knife might be smaller than just the blade on your current EDC at just 2.25” long when closed, but don't count it out. Its 1.5” AUS8 stainless steel blade deploys in a flash by way of either a thumb stud or the much-welcomed flipper tab on a knife this small. The shape of the modified drop point blade maximizes the cutting edge, giving you a lot more to work with than you'd expect for a smaller blade. Once deployed, the blade locks up into a stainless steel frame lock — a secure and convenient alternative to slipjoints and back locks. The flipper tab also acts like a finger guard to let you really put the knife to work. 

The WESN isn't just compact, it's lightweight and durable too thanks to its grade 5 titanium handle. The entire knife weighs just one ounce, making it a breeze to carry whether you use its included pocket clip or make use of its lanyard attachment hole. For a more premium carry option, slip it into its matching, made in the USA leather sheath. A knife this compact can be extremely versatile in your setup as a primary blade, a backup, a keychain option, or even as a makeshift moneyclip. You can pick one up on Amazon at the link below.

Olight S1R II Baton

It truly is an enlightened age for flashlights. Olight is a company that knows this better than most, with years of experience making popular EDC flashlights and continuous development that makes every new release worth the wait. Their latest light, the S1R II Baton, fills out the popular CR123A-powered category with a modern light with modern tech. It's got the size, power, and convenience of an EDC-worthy flashlight.

Olight's new and improved S1R II Baton joins the fray as the upgrade to their original S1R, a light made popular due to its convenient magnetic charging and intense output for a pocket flashlight. While it uses the same Cree XM-L2 LED as its predecessor and is also able to use a CR123A lithium primary, it now runs off of an included IMR 16340 rechargeable battery. You do lose some runtime due to the smaller capacity, but the S1R II is now able to push out a top end of 1000 lumens on Turbo before dropping down to a more manageable ~300 lumens after about a minute. Its 4 other modes, including a Low setting that gives 0.5 lumens up to 8 days and direct access to Strobe, is navigated with the S-series's tried-and-true single side button interface.

It's not just output where the S1R II made improvements. For starters, it's shorter, more compact, and even slightly lighter than the original. It sports a new, more aggressive knurling, as well as the new 2-way clip Olight have been rolling out with their newer lights. The side button now also comes with an LED indicator to let you know its battery level. And speaking of battery, charging is much more convenient now since the S1R II uses Olight's new MCCII (Magnetic Charging Cable II) standard, making the light compatible with the rest of Olight's chargers and cables for ther other magnetic charging lights. The new MCCII cable is included, along with a soft pouch, lanyard, and battery case to hold and carry everything together.

The Olight S1R II Baton shows that Olight knows when not to reinvent the wheel to bring the most benefit to their flashlights. Sometimes a little tweaking is all it takes to make the biggest difference. Pick up Olight's newest compact light at that Amazon link below.

Vincero Watches

When it comes to EDC watches, the usual go-to options like field watches, pilot watches, and divers tend to be on the sporty and utilitarian side. But sometimes the occasion calls for something dressier than your beat-up tool watch. You'd typically have to pay a pretty penny for an EDC-worthy dress watch, but timepieces from Vincero Watches are an exception. They offer bold, classy designs with practical features to match at a solid value, giving you the style of a luxury timepiece without the designer price tag.

Upon first glance of Vincero's offerings, the first thing you'll notice is the sleek design language they use on their take on the classic dress watch and chronograph. Their Chrono S chronograph and Kairos dress watch are standouts for EDC. They share a similar design overall with the same case shape, hands, and dial, but have a few key differences. The Chrono S adds a “stopwatch” function and visual interest with its three subdials while straight stick markers keep the face uncluttered. It also comes in two sizes: 43mm and 40mm. While the 43mm size works well as a statement piece, the 40mm is a more conservative option for people with smaller wrists. It doesn't compromise legibility or functionality either as it still retains the chronograph complications and a date display despite the smaller proportions. The Kairos dress watch measures in at 42mm, keeping things legible with its larger diameter, pointed baton markers on the dial, and a date display at 3 o'clock. The caseback on these watches also features a unique genuine Italian marble inlay and text detailing to round out the design.

Looks aside, Vincero timepieces are solid watches for everyday wear. The cases are made of 316L surgical grade stainless steel and fitted with a sapphire-coated lens. The coated lens offers better scratch resistance than your run-of-the-mill mineral crystal as a more affordable alternative to a full sapphire crystal. A Japanese Miyota quartz movement from Citizen powers the watch, keeping accurate time even if you only wear it for certain occasions — no winding required compared to automatic watches. The included top-grain Italian watch straps are interchangeable too, letting you swap in most 22mm width straps (20mm for the smaller variants) to switch things up. The Kairos dress watch boasts 10 ATM of water resistance too, while the Chrono S is water resistant to 5 ATM. Last but not least, all Vincero watches are manufactured in small batches to help ensure consistent quality throughout.

You can browse our favorite styles like the Chrono S and Kairos (pictured above) at Vincero's online shop at the link below and save 15% off your entire purchase with code EDC15 to make these watches an even better value.

MecArmy EK3R Slipjoint

Depending on where you work or live, your options for an EDC knife can be pretty limited. You've got to consider blade length, how it locks (if at all), and if it'll draw unwanted attention when you use it. This usually means a keychain knife, which can be too small for some tasks, or a traditional knife with an outdated design and materials. Luckily the MecArmy EK3R measures up as a full-sized albeit compact knife option with a non-locking slipjoint mechanism and low profile styling that makes it a viable modern carry option even in the strictest locales.

Between its length and low profile, the EK3R falls in the sweet spot between keychain knife and full-sized folder as a dedicated compact EDC. It's 3.8" long when closed, and its stainless steel handles bring the knife's thickness down to just 0.5" overall. The Sandvik 12C27 steel blade comes in at 2.65", clearing the common sub-3" length restriction while giving you plenty to work with. The upswept wharncliffe blade shape offers all-around utility and manages most light EDC tasks. A larger thumb hole takes the place of a nail nick to make its two-handed operation deploy the blade in a literal snap thanks to its non-locking slipjoint mechanism.

Unlike lots of traditional slipjoint knives, the EK3R boasts all-metal construction and an included clip for tip down, deep-pocket carry. You can remove the clip to keep the knife as discreet as possible and make use of its lanyard hole for easier retrieval, too. The EK3R is available with a plain stonewashed handle or opt for either a "curl" or "skull" patterned laser-engraved handle at the link below.

Keyport Pivot and Slide 3.0 All-in-One Key Organizers

Thanks to different sizes, functions, and needs, keychains are often a nightmare to manage. It's both inefficient and unfortunate considering your keychain is one the most crucial items in your EDC. So when companies come along to improve the pitiful state of our pocket paraphernalia, it pays to give them a look. Keyport has been a leading player in the keychain organization game for over a decade, consistently innovating with every iteration. And with their latest modular products, the Pivot and the Slide 3.0, it's easier than ever to streamline your favorite pocket essentials.

The Keyport Pivot will be a familiar form factor for most EDCers. Your keys and other tools fold and flip out Swiss Army style from the Pivot's skeletonized aluminum chassis. The Pivot features a proprietary locking mechanism that clicks every 90 degrees, won't loosen over time, and allows you to set the optimal tension without the need for additional washers. Alongside your keys, Keyport compatible inserts include the popular MOCA 10-in-1 Multi-Tool, a ballpoint pen, and a range of USB flash drives in addition to several YubiKeys and the full spectrum of Stowaway Tools. While keys and inserts are enclosed within the Pivot's chassis, Keyport's unique modularity allows you to clip modules such as a Mini-Flashlight and a Pocketknife onto the exterior of the Pivot's chassis. More modules are on their way with Keyport’s Anywhere Tools due out in November. And with the Pivot itself weighing only 0.7 ounces, it's one of the most minimalist ways to turn your keychain into a fully customizable EDC multi-tool.

Now in its 3rd gen, Keyport's flagship product, the Keyport Slide 3.0 stands out as the only key organizer that provides quick, one-handed access to keys and tools with just the slide of a thumb. Keyport’s key Blades for the Slide, which feature a universal head and replace your current keys, significantly reduce the size and weight of traditional keys making the whole setup about the size of a box of Tic Tacs. Available in 4 or 6-port configurations, the Slide also accommodates the modular attachments in addition to keys and tools. If you've ever wanted a modern fob style keychain alternative that could fit in 007’s EDC arsenal, then the Slide 3.0 is the device for you.

Keyport's organizers don't just streamline your keys, they help keep tabs on them too. Both the Pivot and Slide 3.0 include a free 2-year subscription to KeyportID, an exclusive online lost & found service. Unlike Bluetooth locators, KeyportID works anywhere, anytime. It doesn’t require wifi, Bluetooth connectivity, or a mesh network, and it won't drain your phone's battery. Each device includes a unique serial number which, when registered, can be used to notify you directly through the online KeyportID interface and to coordinate your Keyport’s quick, safe, and anonymous return in the event it gets lost. Keyport even offers a Reward if Found to thank the finder on your behalf.

Unorganized keychain essentials and jangly keys need not plague your pockets. Build the perfect keychain replacement with Keyport's fully customizable systems available at the link below. Be sure to use discount code KEYDC for 15% OFF your order in the Keyport Store, good through Sunday, September 30th.

Dango Covert X iPhone Cases

Modern phones are expensive investments, particularly the latest and greatest flagship models. And this is more true than ever with Apple's newest phones. They're more powerful than ever, able to do most everything for both work and play, so they're also likely to be the most carried and used item in your EDC. So it's a good idea to find a case that not only protects your phone, but also helps improve the way you use it as well. Dango's Covert X cases offer a balance of strength and performance for the latest iPhone XS, giving them lean but substantial protection while also giving you a few new ways to carry and protect them, too.

The Covert X case comes in a wraparound design to protect every corner of your phone, including a “lip” that gives the phone's face some protective height when placed face down. The TPU material it uses is light and flexible, while at the same time oil- and abrasion-resistant to keep its exterior looking clean and sleek even after extended use. The Covert's key feature is a set of lanyard loop holes built into the case's sides. These work in tandem with an included paracord tether with a metal clasp and ring for the attachment points, giving you alternative ways to carry your phone, or, in worst-case scenarios, prevent you from dropping it.

Whether as extra security when using your phone, a means to carry it around your neck, or even a place to attach some personal trinkets or accessories, the Dango Covert is designed to accommodate your needs. Pick one up in your choice of color and phone model from the link below.

Kershaw Concierge

There's nothing wrong with having statement pieces in your EDC, but there's a good chance you wouldn't want it to be your knife. With that said, you can still carry a discreet knife with eye-catching details from every angle. Kershaw teamed up with knife designer Dmitry Sinkevich to put his sleek, minimalist spin on the new Concierge. It has practical EDC features with modern gent's knife styling and subtle design cues you'll appreciate when you take a closer look.

Immediately upon handling the knife, you’ll notice the unique look and feel of its machined G10 handles. It offers the same light weight and grip you expect from a modern material like G10, but it also sports a woodgrain-like pattern you'd find on traditional knives. Since the Concierge features a secure liner lock mechanism, it allows for both sides of the handle to make the most of the machined G10 material. Instead of simply bolting a pocket knife to one side, Sinkevich-designed a unique inlaid pocket clip. This feature is easy to appreciate especially when using the knife. Since the clip is nearly flush with the scales, the clip stays completely out of the way allowing for a firm and comfortable grip. To add some extra grip, there’s a beefy jimped back spacer too.

The blade itself measures in at a reasonable 3.25” and features a sleek gray carbo-nitride coating on top of the 8Cr13MoV base steel. It deploys via a flipper mechanism that uses Kershaw’s KVT ball bearing system. A light press on the flipper lever, and the blade effortlessly opens with a single hand. Instead of an exposed screw, there’s a custom cap on the pivot that adds to the overall sleek appearance of the knife. The blade is a modified drop point with a gentle swedge on the top. The shape is quite versatile, ideal for slicing, cutting, and piercing tasks.

If you’re looking for a new EDC blade that’s easy to use, quick to deploy, and comfortable to carry, the Concierge is an excellent option. At just under 60 bucks, we believe it’s a tremendous value as well. You can add one to your collection at the link below!

Vertx EDC Gamut 18

It's hard to argue the pure performance of a tactical pack when it comes to EDC with quick access, organization, and modularity at the forefront of its design. But if “tactical” doesn't suit your style, this new pack from Vertx offers that same functionality in a more discreet style you can take downtown or up the trail. It ditches the all-black look, concealing its MOLLE and hook-and-loop platforms with design cues you'd find on “heritage” hiking packs.

The 18-liter EDC Gamut was already a go-to tactical pack for its expansive EDC-focused feature set. This new colorway draws less unwanted attention with its neutral tones and leather touchpoints, but it's still every bit as functional. For starters, the front panel stows away into the bottom of the bag, revealing a full panel of MOLLE webbing for adding pouches and other gear. You can also attach gear to the webbing and keep it concealed with the front panel up for a cleaner look while still having your gear ready. Above the front panel is a zippered, top-entry stash pocket for frequently used gear. It has an integrated keyleash for clipping your keychain, too.


The main compartment opens by way of a U-shaped zipper to lay flat, allowing for easy loading and identification of your gear no matter where it is in the pack. There's a dedicated sleeve for laptops and tablets up to 15”, 3 zippered mesh pockets for keeping your gear consolidated and visible, and more hook-and-loop lining the interior for additional modularity. At the top of the compartment you'll find an admin panel that can fold out without fully unzipping the bag, making it easier to access on the go. The rear panel unzips to reveal a fully lined hook-and-loop platform for carrying self-defense gear, keeping its tactical functionality intact.

Last but not least, two butterfly-opening zippered side pockets give you additional storage on the exterior of the pack. Each pocket opens to reveal an inner sleeve or admin panel on the body of the bag, with a zippered mesh pocket on the “wing” when opened. Other handy features like a cord-equipped water bottle pocket, a pass-through back panel for loading onto luggage, and quick-release shoulder straps round out the pack. Get a closer look at the midnight navy/stone Gamut 18 at the link below.

Flipside 4 Wallet

Since your stash of cards and cash are such a crucial part of your day-to-day, don't you think your EDC wallet should actually protect them? We don't just mean from RFID skimmers, but things like unexpected storms, spills, drops, and everything in between. In that case, the Flipside 4 puts the “wall” in wallet thanks to a slew of rugged features in a hardshell design that keeps your cards and cash on lockdown. It's a wallet with plenty of organization, storage, and protection and very little bulk.

Flipside's flagship RFID blocking wallet isn't your run-of-the-mill, ultra-slim cardholder type of EDC wallet. It's closer to a portable vault that you can slip in your pocket thanks to its structured, crush-resistant clamshell design. It's made from high-strength polycarbonate resin and aluminum to deliver scratch resistance, RFID protection, and overall durability in a lightweight frame. Despite its rigid materials, the Flipside 4 rides comfortably in the pocket due to its smooth edges and rounded corners.

Pushing its ergonomic, locking front button opens the wallet like a clamshell and keeps it open, letting you easily handle its contents. Three separate slots securely grip your cards from the side, making them identifiable at a glance and quick to retrieve with your thumbs. And unlike some other wallets, you can intuitively stash 10 bills under the moneyclip in its dedicated cash compartment.

The Flipside 4 wallet is made in the USA with a 2 year warranty in 6 different colors to match your EDC. Best of all, it's fairly affordable at just under $40. You can check out the Flipside 4's features and color options and grab one for your own carry at the link below. To see more of what Flipside has to offer, keep up with them on their Instagram.

RovyVon Aurora A5

These days it takes more than a spec bump and a smaller footprint to stand out when it comes to EDC lights. Up and coming light manufacturer RovyVon brings both the output and the portability to their 550-lumen Aurora A5 keychain light, but that's just the beginning. Its glow-in-the-dark body is jam-packed with multiple LEDs and other carry-friendly features, making it one of the most versatile lighting tools you can EDC right now.

The Aurora A5 bucks the trend of your typical metal-tube flashlight design with its fluorescent polycarbonate shell. It glows green in the dark, but it's also translucent enough for its two side-mounted LEDs to shine through. The glow-in-the-dark green helps locate the light without using up its battery, while the red side LED functions as a beacon or signal light, and the side-mounted white LED offers a lantern-like flood for reading.

Its main CREE XP-G3 LED pushes up to 550 lumens on its highest setting. Its medium mode hits around 220 lumens, while its Low mode offers 20 lumens of general EDC utility. A stainless steel bezel protects the emitter from impact, while a total internal reflection lens makes for a wide, even beam of floody light. You can control its modes using its side switch that's even capable of both momentary and constant-on operation.

The Aurora A5 also comes with a low-battery indicator and recharges via USB in just 45 minutes. For even more convenience, it comes with a 2-way friction clip for pocket- or ballcap carry, while a lanyard attachment points rounds out your EDC options. Perhaps most impressive is it manages to fit all this technology into an IP65 water resistant body that's only 2.16” long and weighs less than half an ounce at 0.416 oz. You can upgrade your keychain kit with an Aurora A5 at the link below.
