Machine Era Field Pen Twist

With the rising popularity of EDC, there are plenty of machined pens on the market. But just because a pen's made out of metal doesn't always mean it's anything to write home about. These days it takes unique features on top of a rock-solid construction to stand out. The metal machining masters at Machine Era are back with their newest iteration of their Field Pen, but this time, it comes with a twist. Instead of featuring the usual screw cap or clicky top, the Field Pen Twist features a rear-twist mechanism for simple, smooth operation. It's loaded up with a Japanese gel refill to ensure a smooth writing experience from the first twist to the last word.

The Field Pen Twist's EDC-friendly feature set starts with its robust materials. Its machined body comes in matte black DLC-coated stainless steel, brushed stainless steel, or solid brass to offer varying degrees of heft and balance in hand without compromising durability. An anodized 6061 aluminum button covers the pen's Schmidt Easy Glide twist mechanism. This German-made mechanism deploys the ink refill with a simple twist, then locks in place during use. Recessed just below the twist section lies Machine Era's US-made pocket clip, a must-have component on a daily jotter.

The pen measures just under 5", hitting a balance between portable enough for EDC yet comfortable enough to write with. The machined barrel features a subtle, integrated grip section at the business end and is sized to accommodate Parker refills. A Japanese Itoya Aquaroller gel refill comes standard with the Field Pen Twist, delivering a much smoother writing performance than most ballpoint ink cartridges without the fuss and fragility usually found in fountain pens. With its tough build, compact size, simple operation, and silky smooth gel ink, the Field Pen Twist could be your next daily jotter.

Magpul DAKA Window Pouch

Just because life can get messy sometimes doesn't mean your gear has to follow suit. Whether it means keeping things organized or keeping your tools clean and pristine on the worksite or the campsite, an all-conditions utility pouch can do it all. Magpul's popular line of DAKA soft carry goods have found their way into plenty of EDCs, providing simple organization to any EDC bag in a slim, high-performance package that's durable enough to weather the great outdoors. Their newest pouch in the line-up now comes with a translucent window for even easier, at-a-glance identification of your gear. If you’ve been meaning to get a little more organized, this windowed pouch can help you see it through.

Carrying a small item like an SD card or a lighter shouldn't be too much of an issue on their own, but when your EDC is full of small, loose essentials it can be a bit tough to manage. You could try stuffing them in various pockets and compartments in your bag, but then you're tasked with remembering where everything is. The small DAKA pouch measures in at 6” x 9”, making it ideal for consolidation while keeping everything in plain view. And thanks to its 5.75” zippered opening, storage and retrieval is simple and quick as well.

The DAKA Window Pouch's excellent combination of materials and construction make it much more than any ordinary zippered pouch. It's made of water-, chemical-, and dirt-resistant, anti-slip reinforced polymer fabric that performs well in outdoor conditions. The material is RF-welded to create strong, low-profile, stitch-less seams that seal out the elements and keep its contents safe and dry. Even the zipper features YKK Aquaguard hardware for heightened water resistance complete with a heatshrinked paracord pull that's easy to grab even when wet. Finally, built-in attachment points let you clip or mount the pouch to a bag or belt loop. The DAKA Window Pouches are also available in a larger 7” x 12” medium and a 9” x 13” large configuration. Check out the smallest option at the link below.

MSTRMND Apex 3.0 Wallet

A good wallet is an essential part of any carry, but even the best-made wallets can turn into a bulky burden. A good wallet should help you avoid avoid bulk without sacrificing capacity, last you a long time, and protect your cards from damage or thieves. The Apex Wallet 3.0 by MSTRMND aims to be that wallet. The previous Apex Wallet was a huge crowdfunding success, and thanks to a few clever design tweaks and material upgrades the new version seems to be better in all the right ways.

At first glance, you’ll notice that the boxy design of the previous model has been updated with smooth, rounded corners throughout. This means that not only is the ergonomic design easier to handle, but it’s also more comfortable to carry. Plus, a benefit of having rounded corners is that it makes for a smooth retrieval as there are no sharp corners to get caught on anything in your pocket.

The new type-II military-grade anodized aluminum construction also benefits you in more ways than one. Not only does the RFID-shielding frame protect your personal information from people looking to steal it, but at only 1.5 ounces it likely weighs less than the cards you’ll put in it. Speaking of which, the Apex 3.0 can hold up to 7 cards and a few bills but thanks to the quality elastic band you can always add a few more if you need to. Combine the lightweight build with the fact that it’s only ⅓ inch thick, and you get a minimal wallet that can survive almost anything you throw at it.

Everyone carries differently, which is why the Apex 3.0 comes in both horizontal or vertical orientations and silver or black color options so you can pick whichever one best fits your style. Whichever one you choose will come with a quick-access thumb slot that makes getting to your cards in a pinch just one swipe away. If you’re usually wary of crowdfunding campaigns, this one has already been completely funded so there’s no guesswork involved here. Make sure to hit the link below and get one for yourself before all the perk options are gone.

Gerber Mullet

Managing a clean and functional keychain is hard enough, so if you're going to add a multi-tool into the mix, it'd better be worth carrying. It should add enough functionality without much bulk and still be convenient and easy to use. Gerber's iconic Shard one-piece tool ticked all those boxes, making it one of the most popular keychain essentials with EDCers. Their latest solid state tool, the Gerber Mullet, adds even more functionality with a total of 9 tools. Like its name suggests, it works hard and plays hard, channeling the iconic '80s 'do with its “business in the front, party in the back” design.

The Gerber Mullet boasts 9 tools throughout its one-piece body, all arranged in an ergonomic way with ease of use in mind. There’s a pry bar/nail puller/wire stripper at one end that has a scraper on its side. The prongs on the pry bar double as small and large flathead drivers in a pinch as well. Moving back towards the other side is a suspension clip that terminates in a 1/4” hex bit driver. Finally, there’s a bottle opener and 3D Phillips head screw driver at the end. With its slim profile, 3/4” width, and 0.7 oz weight, it's compact but still affords enough room to grip thanks to its 3” total length. You can carry the Mullet by using the included split ring attached to the hole in the center of the body or by using the belt loop portion to suspend the rest of your key setup.

At only ten bucks, the Gerber Mullet is an easy way to spruce up your keychain setup without breaking the bank. And thanks to its TSA-friendly bladeless design, you can carry it just about anywhere. Hit the link below to learn more about this little tool and pick one up for yourself in classic black or a stonewashed silver.

Aer Go Collection

It's easy to organize your essentials in a daypack, or have the perfect pouch system when you're on your regular commute, working the daily grind, or frequenting your favorite haunts. But stepping off your usual path can catch you off guard in unexpected ways. This is where Aer's new Go collection comes into play. As the name suggests, these bags help you plan (and pack) when you're trapped between needing to carry just a little bit more than expected and not being able to spare the space for an extra bag or three. All in a package that's a cut above the packable bags you're used to and presented in the sleek and efficient design language Aer's products are known for.

When you think of packable bags, the image that comes to mind is usually an unstructured mess of lightweight material, loose straps, and flimsy zippers, all in pursuit of being as convenient as possible to stow away in the rest of your bags or luggage. But with the goal of using the best possible materials while maintaining functionality, the Go collection recalls features of Aer's other lines while optimally performing as foldable and portable bags.

Each of the bag use 300D Cordura ripstop rather than Aer's usual 1000D or 1680D ballistic nylon, shaving much of the weight while still maintaining excellent resilience and water resistance. Compartments are locked down with YKK zippers, which now feature easy-grip Hypalon zipper pulls, while Duraflex hardware takes care of clasps and buckles. New to Aer is the collection's use of a Fidlock magnetic fastener for each of the bags' quick-access external pockets, providing both convenience and security in one satisfying click.

Whether preparing for unexpected trips to the store or making sure you can take home your travel haul, Aer's Go collection is small in stature but big in features and convenience. Check out the line at Aer's site at the link below.

DSPTCH Fidlock Keychain Set

These days, keychains aren't just for your keys anymore. There are all sorts of EDC items designed to fit on a keyring alongside your keys, and plenty of them offer unmatched functionality relative to their size. With that in mind, it could be worth upgrading what's often the weakest link in your EDC: your keychain. A few years ago, DSPTCH released a magnetic keychain system that was a bit ahead of its time, designed with quick access and modularity in mind. They've just updated the line with new and improved components, this time offering even more options for carrying all kinds of gear besides your keys. Whether you want a sleek way to EDC your keys, backup tools, credentials, or even a pair of AirPods, the new DSPTCH Fidlock Keychain Set can do it in a snap.

The keychain set components leverage the flexibility and durability of mil-spec nylon webbing with the convenience of magnetic Fidlock hardware. The system uses the same Fidlock attachment hardware and mounting hardware throughout, with the nylon webbing portions available in different shapes and fitted with different hardware to accommodate multiple carry options and use cases. The mounts and attachments are available separately, letting you mix and match to dial in your perfect setup to go with the rest of your kit.

Five different mount configurations include a gated D-ring, a snap closure, a plastic belt clip, and a locking plastic clip variant. The different mounts excel at different applications, like from a D-ring, a belt loop, or a shoulder strap. Some of the mounts even include a built-in split ring, giving you more options to attach gear beyond the magnetic attachment counterparts. The attachment pieces come in four variants, each designed to carry different essentials in your kit. The mini ring works for your keychain or keychain-sized tools you use frequently, while the other attachments are designed specifically to carry an Apple Watch, an AirPods case, or an ID card.

The Fidlock components latch to each other magnetically in a snap, without you needing to fuss around with spring-loaded gates or other moving parts. They're secure once mounted and require a deliberate pulling motion away from each other, which is made easier by DSPTCH's custom pull tabs on the attachment side. Each piece in the set is made in the USA and backed with DSPTCH's lifetime guarantee. You can browse the full collection to mix and match your own set to suit your EDC at the link below.

Toler Tools UNION Modular Multi-tool

When it comes time to pick an EDC multi-tool, there's usually a tight trade-off between features and portability. Minimalist tools tend to lack that one key feature you need, or sometimes cram so many tools into a package so small they're uncomfortable to actually use. On the flip side, tools that try to pack everything under the sun can end up being unwieldy and impractical to carry every day. But with the truly modular design of the Toler Tools UNION, you get a set of full-size quality tools in a package that's remarkably small for what it has to offer. And the best part is that it's designed to come apart: giving you the option to use, and carry, each half of the tool independent from the other.

The secret to the UNION's smart modular design is its unique ability to unfold and separate at the center joint. This allows you to take a feature set that normally requires you to lug around a tool box, and place it in a pants pocket or in a belt sheath instead. The UNION come with a serious set of tools, starting with its stand-out accessory: a self-adjusting, ratcheting OMNILOCK wrench. It's ready to take on large tasks with the ability to accommodate ¼”-¾” hex bolts.

That full-size competency extends to the rest of the tools on the UNION, like the integral spring-loaded pliers on the other side. Then there's the locking 3.125” D2 steel drop-point blade with a large eye-hole for easy one-handed opening in just about any configuration of the larger overall UNION assembly. Thanks to the Union’s multiple hex openings throughout the body of the tool, you can mount the bit driver in multiple orientations depending on the task: a right angle for tight spaces, three different screwdriver configurations, and two positions in the T-handle for extra leverage. Of course, the OMNILOCK wrench lets you conveniently ratchet the bit extender for all those longer jobs. A set of four bits (large and small Phillips, slotted, and hex) come standard with the Union, neatly stowed away in the handle itself. The UNION also comes with two dedicated, locking, pistol-grip saws that'll let you cut through wood and metal with ease. Finally, a locking diamond file and awl for finishing work on your projects rounds out the set.

Despite its rich feature set, it's still manageable in your pocket and even more so when separated. It's especially easy to carry thanks to built-in pocket clips, too. You can reserve a UNION of your own right now at Toler Tools' fully-funded Indiegogo page at the link below.

The James Brand Ellis

For a knife to be “minimalist,” it doesn't always have to mean it sports an understated design that's stripped of features. Minimalism can go beyond looks, instead focusing on letting you do more while carrying less. The James Brand Ellis has a unique balance of  uncluttered design and all-round versatility that's worthy of your minimalist EDC. With a competent blade for cutting tasks and an integrated multi-tool for almost everything else, it'll cover your bases, look good doing it, and free up some pocket space to boot.

The business end of the Ellis features a stout 2.6” modified drop-point blade that maximizes the cutting potential of the blade while keeping it compact. The blade is made out of a highly corrosion-resistant Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel that sharpens up to a nice edge. And because the blade has a mixture of straight edge and serrated surfaces, it's a good all-around cutting tool for your everyday carry. Opening the blade is a classic two-handed affair, made easier with the nail nick in the blade. A sturdy lockback mechanism holds the blade in place during use.

When you're done with the knife, fold it into the anodized aluminum handle, and it's there where the design of the Ellis truly shines. Like the gentleman's knives of old, the Ellis has a second tool built into the design, which opens just like the knife. But instead of another blade, the Ellis gives you a screwdriver and bottle opener. And because of the smart design of the Ellis, you get a full-sized handle that you can use to leverage these tools to the best of your ability. It doesn't stop there: at the pommel of the knife is a combination scraper and pry bar, handy for those who would otherwise use their knife for that task despite every warning not to do so.

For easy of carry, the back of the Ellis comes with a bail for attachment to a lanyard. If you prefer to carry it in your pockets, the 2.8 ounce weight makes it a no-fuss accompaniment to your curated carry. And with its good looks and intelligent features, you can use the Ellis to pare down to the essentials, making your life easier by shedding redundancies. The Ellis is available now, in three different colorways including black, silver, and a stand-out electric moss green. Check it out at the link below.

Arc'teryx Granville 10 Courier Bag

When looking for a great bag to commute with in a city environment, you probably wouldn't start your search with an outdoors sports brand. But when you think about the kind of performance and durability the great outdoors demands, it makes sense to trust a brand like Arc'teryx with your everyday gear. In addition to making top-notch equipment and apparel for mountain climbing, they also produce minimalist technical gear for everyday urban use as well. The new Arc’teryx Granville 10 courier bag is a perfect example of this, blending portability, ease of access, and durable materials to keep you prepared for any urban commute.

The bag is made of Arc’teryx's proprietary ripstop nylon AC2 material, complete with taped seams and water-tight YKK zippers to provide excellent weatherproofness. So whether you spill a drink or get caught in a quick downpour you won’t have to worry about your gear getting damaged. Dual one-handed release buckles secure the top flap and make sifting through your gear in a pinch a breeze. Plus, the ambidextrous cross-body strap means you can get to your things in cramped quarters by swinging the bag around to your front. Even though the bag weighs only 18 ounces when empty, it also features a three-point strap so you can distribute the weight when carrying heavier loads.

The same attention to detail present on the exterior is reflected on the inside of the pack as well, with plenty of internal organization to keep all your gear in place. Under the top flap is a zippered quick access pocket for your most used items like your wallet or a small notebook. There's also a built-in key clip so you won’t have to go digging to the bottom of your bag in search of your house keys anymore. Then there’s the main 10L compartment, which has another pocket for smaller essentials like charging cables or pens as well as a padded pocket that can fit a 12-inch laptop or tablet.

However you get to work, the Arc’teryx Granville 10 Courier bag is likely up to the task. It’s built to handle brutal weather without sacrificing a sleek design that won’t look out of place in the office.

Dango Modular Watches

When you're at the top of your game, the biggest challenge is figuring out what to do next. It's easy to be stagnant rather than explore uncharted territory, but the thing is, nobody gets anywhere exciting or makes anything interesting by standing still. Now with a long history covering all the essentials in your pockets, Dango has set their sights on their next frontier: robust everyday watches. Built with the same care and attention to detail that are the hallmarks of their popular wallets and accessories, this new line is definitely worth your time.

In the spirit of covering your every adventure, the Dango Watches line comes in three models to match your everyday activities: Trek, Dive, and Chrono. All three watches feature a strong 45mm wrist presence built with 316L stainless steel and sapphire glass, protecting a beating heart in the form of a Swiss Ronda quartz movement.

The TK-01 Trek Watch's design takes its cues from the EDC-favorite field or officer's watch, but with materials turned up to 11. Its face features the style's signature dual 12- and 24-hour dials, with luminescent markings, polished silver indices for the outer dial, and a high-visibility second hand as key eye catches. No expense was spared for its strap, either. It features Dango's new patented interchangeable lugs (with quick-release spring bars) and offered in a luxurious Horween leather strap or nylon NATO style. Last but not least, a 50-meter water resistance and 45-month battery life round out the TK-01's complications.

The dive watch is arguably the most emblematic of EDC—a rock-solid watch with bold features and reliable performance on land or at sea. The DV-01 ticks all the boxes for this iconic style, with a few more thoughtful features added to the mix. Out of the collection, the DV-01 has a hardier 200-meter water resistance you would expect from a dive watch. Large luminescent markers light up its dial, with a date window at the 3 o'clock position and hi-vis yellow ends for its three hands. Finally, a notched, uni-directional rotating bezel rounds out the DV-01's case features. For its strap you have an option for either a metal bracelet or ventilated silicone sport band, both featuring Dango's interchangeable lugs.

Last but not least is the CR-01, Dango's chronograph offering. As expected from a watch in this style, its movement comes with more complications along with the most detailed case of the line. Three subdials are front and center with 30-second, 60-second, and 10-hour hands used for tachymeter and stopwatch complications, paired with a date window at the 3 o'clock position. Both the inner dial edge and bezel feature scale markings, with red accents on key indices and on the watch's main hands, as well as a bright red side button. For its straps the CR-01 comes with the interchange lugs and quick-release spring bars as the other watches, in a leather strap or metal bracelet option. Its clasp comes with a patented micro-adjustment buckle, allowing you to have the perfect fit every time without having to add or subtract links from the bracelet itself.

It's time to step up your watch game with Dango's new timepiece collection, built for any everyday carry and activity. All three watches are currently being launched on Kickstarter at special introductory prices, so be sure to check out the campaign at the link below.

Magpul DAKA Bifold Wallet

For most people, a fat wallet is a great thing to have. But as EDCers, we want our wallets slim by design, not because they're empty. While many minimalist wallets trim down the bulk by limiting how much cash you can carry, Magpul's newest DAKA Bifold wallet doesn't compromise capacity for pocket friendliness. Thanks to its high-performance technical fabrics and innovative construction methods, it carries your IDs, cards, and cash in a familiar silhouette that's much slimmer than the rest.

As the newest member of the DAKA family, the Bifold wallet features the same reinforced polymer materials as the rest of Magpul's popular soft goods. The DAKA fabric boasts a slip-resistant tactile texture and excellent water resistance for that go-anywhere durability. The material itself is thin and light, but RF-welded seams reduce bulk further while adding durability and water resistance. The combination of materials and no-stitch construction allows for a truly low-profile wallet without added thickness from unnecessary material overlapping and stitched seams.

The wallet opens to reveal a single pocket on each side of the interior with an additional slit cut out to form 4 dedicated card slots. The cascaded placement of slots allows for easy visual ID, while the side-loading orientation keeps cards from falling out. Best of all, a full-length dedicated billfold section accommodates shorter currency without needing to fold your change to fit it into such a slim wallet. Last but not least, rounded corners keep it comfortable to carry and easy to slip into your pocket. With its slim silhouette and 4.215" x 3.05" dimensions when closed, it minimizes printing so nobody can see where you're keeping your wallet.

Kershaw Seguin

Sometimes you can take one look at a knife and know it can do some serious work. We're talking about the kind of knife that looks like it can do more than cut open the occasional package in the mail (or for some of us, much more than occasional…). Something with enough heft to get big jobs done, but still entirely pocketable to be your daily driver. The new Kershaw Seguin is one of those knives. This Les George collaboration sports a beefy design with a versatile blade to boot, featuring the kind of ergonomics that make even the toughest tasks feel a bit easier.

The solid build of the Seguin (that's pronounced Seh-geen, by the way) starts with its full-sized 4.25” stainless steel handle. Its length, mixed with the ergonomic contours, lets you get a firm grasp for full control over your work. And unlike most knives that have metal handles, the Seguin enjoys an aggressive machine-etched texturing on the top, bottom, and sides of the blade that make this knife easy to grasp even when things get slippery. The business end of the knife is impressive as well, with a modified clip-point shape making the Seguin reminiscent of a pocket folding Bowie knife. Fitting, since the namesake of the Seguin was a hero of the Texas Revolution.

The 3.1” 8Cr13MoV blade has everything you need, from a solid point for piercing, a curved belly extending to the tip for slicing, and a straight edge for rope and other utility tasks. To match the stainless aesthetic of the handle, the blade is treated with a PVD coating, which also increases its hardiness against the corrosive elements. The large index flipper tab and SpeedSafe assist makes opening the blade an easy one-handed motion. There's added jimping on the index flipper for control that doubles as a finger guard in the open position. And because there's a frame lock in a handle, you can be certain the blade won't close up on you accidentally while you work.

Once you're done with the Kershaw Seguin, close it up and let it disappear into your pockets with the single-position deep-carry tip, a welcome addition to a pocketknife of this size. With how versatile it is, you'll appreciate the build quality as you'll find yourself using it again and again as part of your everyday carry. Pick one up at the link below.

Evergoods CTB40 Crossover Travel Pack

Carrying the gear in your pockets can be hard enough. Traveling with gear? That's a whole different ball game. If you've ever taken a trip for outdoors sports like climbing, skiing, or camping, you'd know the struggle of packing your usual travel essentials and your equipment. As both urban adventurers and avid outdoorsmen, the team at Evergoods set out to solve the travel packing, gear hauling conundrum with their line of high performance "city to mountain" packs. The CTB40 is their take on a crossover travel pack, infused with design DNA from tactical bags, softshell luggages, and mountaineering packs to handle your loadout for whatever and wherever your adventures take you.

Inside and out, the CTB40 isn't like the usual travel backpack you've come to expect. Its sleek, discreet exterior is made of 500D nylon for lightweight durability, then finished with a durable water repellant for weather resistance that's especially handy when hauling your gear outdoors. The slim, rectangular silhouette of the CTB40 makes it easy to transport whether you're stowing it in an overhead bin, carrying it on your back with its contoured, padded shoulder straps, or just carrying it by hand thanks to its extra-long grab handles on three sides of the pack. With a 40L maximum capacity it's also roomy enough to use for awkwardly sized outdoors equipment or simple "onebag" travel.

The CTB40 unzips clamshell style with a thoughtful mix of zippered internal organization and a spacious main compartment for easy, at-a-glance packing. The main compartment features ample padding and flexible, foldable "wings" along the perimeter to protect and contain your gear. Multiple compression straps keep things tight and secure when you're packing heavy, or keep the bag low-profile for when you're traveling light. The top section of the pack serves as an integrated travel organizer with plenty of zippered pockets and mesh paneling to separate and identify your gear without needing to rummage through your bag. A high-contrast,  PU-coated 420D nylon lines the interior to keep things light, easily visible, and clean. Last but not least, you can stow your laptop in the CTB40's dedicated laptop compartment that's fully padded and suspended, making for a protected and comfortable carry.

Before your next big trip, consider consolidating your EDC pack, luggage, and gear duffel to lighten the load and lessen the headache of traveling. The CTB40 is up for the challenge, and it's available in black or grey from Huckberry at the link below.

Nite Ize Runoff Waterproof Pocket

Whether you're traveling, exploring the great outdoors, or simply gearing up for another day in the office, organization is key. It's especially true if you rotate through different bags for each activity but your core essentials stay the same. A utility pouch is a simple and effective way of keeping your EDC in one place, and the new NiteIze Runoff Pocket does it even better thanks to a slew of innovative features. With its waterproof construction and materials, it's ready to protect your passport, phone, and other small essentials far off the beaten path.

It's easy to phone it in with something as seemingly simple as a zippered pouch, but NiteIze tends to cram tons of functionality into their gear. With the RunOff Pocket a few key features put an emphasis on durability, waterproofness, ease-of-carry and visibility. It starts with an exterior made from TPU (thermoplastic urethane) material, with seams welded through radio frequencies, also known as dielectric welding. This fuses the material together, giving it fully submersible and dustproof properties. Matching this high-tech construction is a special zipper developed by NiteIze called the TRU Zip, a waterproof zipper which maintains a seal rated to IP67 as a quick and convenient alternative to a roll-top closure. It glides smoothly, silently, and without snagging thanks to a unique toothless mechanism, giving you a familiar process without sacrificing protection.

At 5.2" x 6.5", the pocket is sized right for EDC, with enough space for your phone, wallet, keys, passport, or other essentials that need protecting during your excursion. Thanks to a windowed main/front compartment, you have full touchscreen access to your phone, letting you operate it without exposing it to the elements. On the reverse side, a pass through belt loop lets you wear the pouch on your belt or strapped to your bag for easy, secure access. Finally, rounding out the pouch's carry options are built-in attachment points on either side that make it easy to carry via a carabiner, lanyard, or shoulder strap.

Carry your essentials with confidence, no matter the element. Pick up the Nite Ize RunOff Pocket at the link below, and be sure to check out the rest of the RunOff line to cover your bases.
