Quietcarry iQ EDC Flipper Knife

Finding a knife that can get the job done day in and day out without looking too intimidating is no easy task, especially if you live in a big city. True to its name, Quietcarry has had success with EDC gear in the past by putting a low-profile and high performance at the forefront of its designs. This time around, the company is going all in on knives with their new iQ EDC Flipper Knife. It's a sleek flipper dressed up in titanium or carbon fiber handles based on the iconic Japanese higo no kami knife.

Quietcarry specializes in discreet and functional tools for the modern EDCer, and the iQ continues that vision. Taking its inspiration from the Japanese Higo knife, this pocket-sized flipper keeps the spine of the blade in line with the scales when deployed making for a simple and refined silhouette. At 2.9-inches the VG10 steel blade is more than capable of handling everyday tasks and its modified Sheepsfoot shape only adds to that functionality. The straight base of the blade is ideal for more controlled clean cuts while the curved tip makes typical slicing tasks a breeze.

But the minimalist design is only one part of what makes the iQ interesting as it’s also built like a tank. The handle is made of tough 5/6AL 4V Titanium known for its high strength-to-weight ratio. And if you opt for the stealthy all-black version you’ll also get a PVD coated carbon fiber mixed in. This adds even more scratch resistance to an already tough knife that still only weighs in at 2.2 ounces. Part of the appeal of a pocket knife comes from how easy it is to EDC. Keeping with the unassuming aesthetic of the iQ, Quietcarry also added a deep-carry pocket clip to the iQ so you can keep it out of sight until you need it.

If you’ve been on the lookout for a minimalist pocket knife that looks as good as it cuts, the iQ Titanium and Carbon Fiber knives are worth looking into. The campaign is already funded (many times over), so check it out at the link below.

Bond DASH Dopp Kit

Out of all the essentials in a traveler's kit, it's the dopp kit that's often the most imprecise and difficult to organize. After all, unlike tools with uniform sizes like flashlights or rectangular tech objects, your grooming or first aid supplies come in all shapes and sizes. So finding the right dopp kit that's versatile enough to take on the most unconventional gear is a life (and time) saver—a kit like the Bond DASH. More than just a nylon pouch to haphazardly throw your toiletries into, the DASH has thoughtful organization and features packed into a rugged package that make it an ideal EDC traveling companion.

The first thing an EDCer would notice is the DASH's construction. The dopp kit comes with USA-made, mil-spec levels of fit and finish, from its 1000D nylon exterior with double-stitched stress points to its autolocking YKK zippers (accented with hi-vis paracord pulls, at that). Inside the DASH are two mesh pockets—one horizontal and one vertical—to organize your kit as needed. One the vertical pocket side, a strip of elastic slots give lets you stow and quickly access tools that would otherwise be loose in a normal, open dopp kit. No more digging for essentials like your toothbrush, razor, nail clipper, or cologne vial when you need them for quick touch-ups. Finally, one feature that makes the DASH incredibly useful: an included carabiner and hang loop lets the kit hang flat from anywhere, making it even easier to set up and access your supplies wherever and whenever you need them.

Whether finding yourself in a flurry of travel or needing a versatile way to organize emergency essentials, the DASH kit's got the features you need. Pick one up from Amazon at the link below.

Dango C01 Civilian Wallet

There are some things in your EDC that you just can't afford to lose, with your wallet being a prime example. Unfortunately, so many minimalist wallets put an emphasis on slimness and quick access at the expense of security. Dango's new Civilian C01 Wallet, on the other hand, hits that sweet spot of portability and security with its thoughtful design and materials. It's a simple, premium leather cardholder bundled with a silicone strap for versatility, a CNC'd aluminum attachment point for extra security, and a paracord lanyard for grip and retrieval.

The C01 Civilian Wallet comes as a distillation of Dango's other wallets for EDCers who want an uncompromising minimalist option. The result is a clean, cardholder-esque design that fits up to 10 cards comfortable in its 4 pockets. For everything else, like folded bills, the C01 features an elastic silicone band to keep things consolidated. Throw in the Italian leather construction and not only does the C01 stand up to everyday wear and tear, but it'll also look better over time. And instead of the screwed-in metallic frame you'll find on Dango's more tactical options, the C01 Civilian opts for tight stitching to hold the leather together. If you do prefer the rigidity and structure metal provides, the wallet is compatible with Dango's MT02 multi-tool too. It's an easy and transformative addition to the wallet to boost its functionality.

As essential as your wallet is, making sure it's with you at all times is crucial. The C01 gives you a few different ways to go about it, thanks to its integrated aluminum attachment tab on the corner of the wallet. In its standard configuration, it comes with a 550 paracord lanyard for extra grip and easy retrieval from your pocket that doubles as 3 feet of emergency cordage when unraveled. To make sure your wallet really doesn't go anywhere, you can use the aluminum tab for attaching a tether to your belt loop (and even clip your keyring to it too for good measure).

With minimalism and modularity at its core, the C01 Civilian wallet keeps your essentials in check without taking up much pocket space. You can grab one in five different color options from Dango at the link below.

BigiDesign Ti Arto EDC Pen

When a new product has “EDC” in the name, we tend to take notice. Especially when it’s from the folks at BigiDesign. They’re known for their streamlined pocket tools, and of course, pens. The Ti Arto EDC is an updated (and improved) version of their Ti Arto pen from last year that accepted over 200 different pen refills. This updated version is lighter weight, easier to use, and adjusts to the length of various refills with a simple twist.

The Ti Arto EDC takes into consideration the feedback that BigiDesign received on their last pen. The result is a simpler yet more functional version that seamlessly adapts to accept over 750 refills (yes, you read that right) without any play in the tip of the pen. The Arto EDC achieves this thanks to the clutch mechanism in the grip, coupled with the screw-to-adjust body that lengthens or shortens depending on how you twist it. When capped, the pen hovers between 4.4” and 5.2”, depending on the refill inside. It’s small enough to easily fit in your pocket and stays in there securely thanks to the deep pocket carry clip.

The pen is crafted from grade 5 titanium alloy and is available in three different finishes. You can pick one up in stonewashed titanium, midnight black, or raw machined titanium. BigiDesign launches their pens through Kickstarter with an excellent project history. The Ti Arto EDC currently has over $120,000 in funding, so back with confidence. No matter what your preferred refill in, the Ti Arto EDC has you covered.

Olight S1 Mini Baton Rechargeable

Since the Olight S1 Baton's release in the past year, few lights have epitomized the size and features of an ideal EDC light. It had a great size and useful features, and has been a mainstay carry ever since. And while the S1's been joined by siblings such as the S Mini and S1R, there's been little reason to upgrade the S1 itself—until now. Olight recently launched the S1 Mini Baton, consolidating the Baton family features into one light while giving the it upgrades in all the right places. Packing convenience and and functionality, the S1 Mini Baton cements its place in EDCers pockets.

The best thing about the new S1 is it didn't try to change anything that wasn't broken. It's taken the S Mini's shorter and lighter form factor of 2.13” and 1.52 ounces, while improving on its power and features. Specifically, the new S1 comes with up to 600 lumens (50 more from the S Mini) and up to 15 days of runtime off its XM-L2 LED emitter, with a high CRI option to boot for fans of a more eye-pleasing tint. The magnetic tail that was missing from the S Mini is back as well, giving the S1 Baton more versatility, in addition to a new two-way clip and a braided knurling pattern that makes it easier than ever to carry and use.

On top of it all, the S1 Mini comes with a new 650mAh battery with a built-in micro USB charging port, making the light even more convenient and useful and playing well with the rest of your tech. IPX8-rated ruggedness rounds out the light's features, along with an included lanyard for more options for convenient carry.

The S1 Mini Baton takes a great light and makes it even better, improving on its features and not fixing what isn't broken. Pick one up from Amazon at the link below.

Maxpedition MRZ Pocket Organizer

Keeping things organized in an EDC pouch is a top efficiency tip, with Maxpedition making some of the most robust and useful organizers to accommodate even the most expansive loadouts. The MRZ Mini Organizer—born out of Maxpedition's AGR (Advanced Gear Research) department—takes the simple pouch and upgrades it on every level. It's a modern hardshell hybrid organizer that you can literally throw at your daily packing tasks.

The secret of the MRZ's shell is in its semi-rigid front face. The dual nylon fabric construction allows extra protection for your essentials, of which you'll have plenty to fit in thanks to its extensive internal organization. The protective structure of the shell allows for a unique, zippered stash pocket for your loose or bulky essentials that few pouches offer. The rest of the interior organization features a more familiar configuration with an elastic pocket, loops, and even a Keyper to organize the rest of your gear.

On its rear are laser-cut attachment points which let you carry or attach the MRZ to larger packs with the use of its included polymer joining clips. Or if you prefer, a nylon composite carry handle up top lets you easily carry or transfer the pouch when needed. Rounding out the MRZ's fit and finish is a front hook and loop field for your morale patches, Teflon-coated construction, and heavy-duty YKK zippers to be expected from Maxpedition's rugged pouches.

Carry and organize your gear with confidence with the Maxpedition MRZ, available from Amazon at the link below.

Kizer Aileon

If you're looking for an EDC knife but you're on a budget, all too often that means having to accept some compromises. That's why budget knives tend to skimp on blade steel and materials. Premium materials and thoughtful design cost a pretty penny, after all. Kizer's a knife manufacturer known for overdelivering performance at competitive pricepoints, but their Aileon is especially impressive. It's a full-sized folding knife with quality blade steel and a titanium handle for under 50 dollars.

It's frankly amazing that this budget knife features a 3.5" hollow-ground CPM-S35VN blade. It has a modified clip point with a pronounced curve that makes it great for both slicing and piercing. Deployment of the blade is easy with prominent ambidextrous thumbstuds. The blade also has an attractive stonewash finish that matches the gorgeous titanium handle. That titanium composition makes for a solid and reliable frame lock. The clip on the knife is titanium, and it's set up for right-handed tip-up or down carry.

You rarely see such a capable and beautiful everyday carry knife with materials like this at this price. If you're in the market for a new EDC knife, or are looking to gift one this holiday season, the Kizer Aileon is perfect. Pick one up now at the link below.

Zelos Abyss 2 Dive Watch

Whether you’re heading into the depths of the ocean, or just doing some desk diving around the office, the Abyss 2 by Zelos is sure to get the job done. Nearly every feature on the Abyss 2 is over-engineered to be the best that it possibly can. Zelos takes the standard dive watch specs (like water resistance, lume, domed crystal, and a sturdy case) and amps them up to the next level.

The Abyss 2’s 43mm case is made from a marine-grade copper-bronze alloy, a material that’s commonly seen in aquatic applications. The material, case design, and helium escape valve allow the watch to obtain its 3000M water resistance rating. No really, you read that right. The Abyss 2 has a water resistance of 3,000M. This is 10 times the amount commonly seen on a dive watch. Let that sink in.

The case will also pick up a patina over time — starting off with a look similar to rose gold, then eventually fading to a rich, golden brown. To increase legibility, they’ve engraved the hour makers extra deeply, allowing several layers of the super-luminous paint to build up. The result is an extra bright and long-lasting glow. The Abyss 2 also features an internal 12-hour rotating bezel that can track an alternate time zone. The dial is protected by a domed sapphire crystal and finished with a lume-treated rotating outer bezel.

The watch stays ticking thanks to an automatic, reliable, Swiss-made Selitta movement. The standard model features the SW-200 movement with second hand, while The Turbine model features the SW-260. In place of a seconds hand is a running-indicator sub dial. And instead of a traditional elongated watch hand, there’s a disc with a propellor on it that rotates as long as the watch is running. It’s a nice design touch that further emphasizes the Abyss 2’s oceanic theme.

While most of the Abyss 2's design calls back to its deep-diver roots, a special edition version of the watch has a dial that's literally out of this world. It's made from the Muonionalusta meteorite, which landed over a million years ago in Sweden. It adds an exotic, one-of-a-kind texture to the watch. The standard configuration of the watch comes in either a black, blue, or green dial as well, with the Turbine version available in black or blue.

This tank of a dive watch is now available for pre-order, due to ship in early December of this year. The watch starts at $569 and goes up to $799 for the meteorite version. You can pick one up at the link below.

Orbitkey Ring, Clip and Strap

Let's face it — carrying keys is cumbersome. That's why you'll find so many products for organizing keys. Orbitkey was one of the first to do it, and to this day their key organizer is one of the best minimalist options out there. But if you think about it, once you've got your keys in order, the weakest link in your keychain is the keyring itself. A traditional split ring is so hard to use, you'd rather set it once and forget it. So what do you do when you need to change up your keychain gear? Orbitkey's answer is their newest project, poised to be the next step forward in carrying your keys more efficiently. It includes a completely reinvented keyring, a highly adaptable carabiner and hook, and a wrist strap for versatility beyond your pockets. It's a trio of excellent designs in and of themselves that creates a system greater than the sum of its parts.

It all starts with the humble keyring. Deceptively simple in its appearance, the Orbitkey Ring actually conceals a patent-pending locking mechanism that opens easily for quick access, but locks securely when you're on the go. It does this using a clever mix of two materials: stainless steel for the outer ring to provide structure and strength, and a polymer core for flexibility and ease of use. You pinch and pull the tab on the polymer inner ring downward, then rotate it to reveal a gap for your keys and other gear to enter through.

For a truly dialed EDC, it isn't enough to just get your keys in order — how you carry them is also important. That's where the next part of the Orbitkey system, the Clip, comes in. It's essentially a refined carabiner with elegant proportions, an enlarged ergonomic polymer gate, and a custom leather fob to allow hot-swapping for multiple configurations using a simple metal slider.

The last part of the new Orbitkey ecosystem is a wrist strap that works like a longer version of the Clip. It comes especially in handy if you like to attach  keys to your bag. The added length and security means you won't have to unclip your keys to unlock your door, and retrieving your keychain from the bottom of your bag becomes much easier. While carrying keys on a wrist strap isn't as popular with guys, it can be repurposed for gear other than keys, like a point-and-shoot camera, too.

Best of all, the gear works seamlessly with each other as a system, including the original Orbitkey key organizers. Get a closer look at how these designs work at the fully funded Kickstarter below, and pick up a few if you're looking to take your minimalist key carry to the next level.

Kel-Tec CL-42 and CL-43 Tactical Flashlights

When it comes to making tactical gear, Kel-Tec has decades of experience. Their innovative firearms designs have seen great success in the military, law enforcement, and civilian markets. But their recent efforts aren't only focused on delivering weapons platforms. With the CL-42 and CL-43, Kel-Tec has brought their design expertise to the EDC flashlight arena. Both of these tactical flashlights are compact and suitable for everyday carry, especially if you carry a firearm. But even if you don't, they're  rugged enough to stand up to the rough use in the field.

The Kel-Tec CL-42 is a low-profile tactical LED flashlight that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. At only 4.5” long it's big enough to give you a proper grip, but not so big that it becomes bulky in your pockets. It has a textured aluminum case that helps provide you that grip even in inclement conditions.

The light is simple to use: a full press turns the light on and off while a half press enables its momentary-on feature. Because of its heritage as a tactical light for use with a firearm, there isn't a confusing plethora of modes to shuffle through. It has a single 420 lumen output, and it throws its beam of light out 525 feet.

It takes two 123A batteries, and with them it is rated to put out its maximum output for an hour and 15 minutes. But unlike other LED flashlights, the CL-42 is designed to deal with prolonged power consumption gracefully. Instead of shutting off when it doesn't have enough power to run on max, it reduces its output gradually until there's nothing left to give. So after two hours and 20 minutes of use, the light is rated to put out 40 lumens. And because it's a weapon light, it's ready for hard use. The CL-42 is impact resistant up to one meter, and it's also water resistant to a depth of one meter.

The Kel-Tec CL-43 is another compact tactical EDC flashlight, but with a twist. It has an innovative design that lets you cradle it in your offhand while letting you maintain a firm grip a handgun in your primary hand. But even if you don't intend to use it that way, the unique shape lets you point at what you want to illuminate easily. You can easily hold it in one hand and click on the activation switch like a trigger to turn it on and off.

Like the CL-42, the CL-43 also has a momentary-on function. But unlike the CL-42, the CL-43 is able to hold one more 123A battery while being noticeably shorter than its cousin at only 3.75” long. The extra battery capacity allows it to run its 420 lumen single output far longer than the CL-42 at 3 hours and 35 minutes. Like with the other Kel-Tec light, the CL-43 slowly lowers its output once your exceed that max rating until all of the power stored is finally used up.

The low-profile and efficient design of these Kel-Tec lights make them a solid option to introduce to your own everyday carry, whether it's for daily use or emergency situations. Check them out in more detail at the link below.

StatGear Ausus Pocket Knife

For most budget knives on the market, you get what you pay for. And while they're usually fine for light tasks, they don't exactly inspire confidence when taking on real hard use. The few that do, however, tend to be fixed blades or designs that are just too bulky in general for EDC. StatGear's Ausus pocket knife aims to buck the trend as their latest Kickstarter project set to deliver this December. It's an overbuilt folding knife with the premium materials and EDC-focused features to match at a solidly affordable price point.

The hard use potential of the Ausus begins with its 3.5" D2 steel blade. D2 is a tool steel that's high in both carbon and chromium, giving the blade excellent sharpness, hardness, and edge retention even after frequent hard use. While the Ausus was designed with large tasks in mind, it features jimping on the top of the blade for added control during precision work. Deployment of the blade is easy with its oversized, ambidextrous thumbstuds and internal ball bearings.

The Ausus's large 4.5" handle lets you get a solid, full-handed grip on the knife for when the task at hand requires a little elbow grease. The knife comes equipped with a liner lock, which also adds some proportional thickness to the handle to let it stand up to batoning and other more extreme situations. The canvas micarta handles will stand up to rough and regular use, plus they provide excellent grip even when wet. Micarta doesn't just lend durability and grip, it also gives the knife a more elegant and luxurious look as it's a material traditionally used on classic gent's knives.

Despite the Ausus's size and beefier design, it isn't a problem for your pockets. It's mostly thanks to its extremely deep-carrying pocket clip design. It allows for sleek low-profile reversible tip-up carry to make the knife practically disappear in the pocket.

The Ausus is available in two different colorways: full-black with an oxide blade and brown with a satin finish. With its rock-solid yet elegant design, you might think the Ausus would cost you a pretty penny, but that's not the case. A pledge of 43 dollars or less to its fully-funded Kickstarter can secure you one of your own. Back the project at the link below.

DSPTCH Travel Pack

When pockets aren’t enough, a day pack would be your usual go-to. But what do you do when you’re packing more than a day’s worth of gear? Not all EDC packs have the durability and features to pull double duty as a travel bag for those longer trips. DSPTCH’s new Travel Pack is one sleek solution for urban EDCers and modern travelers, designed to make packing heavier loads and carrying them on your back easier than ever.

The 30L Travel Pack is the perfect size to fit a few days worth of clothing as well as your tech gadgets. Its main compartment is large enough to fit your clothes, but you'll also get a dedicated compartment on the bottom for keeping shoes or dirty clothes separate. You’ll also get a padded laptop compartment along the rigid back panel, which both protects your device from damage and gives structure to the bag no matter how full or empty it is.

Then there’s all the different ways you can carry it. Convenient side handles let you carry the pack briefcase style when space is limited, but the most unique feature of this bag is its dedicated, multi-functional hip belt. When worn around your hips, it does a great job of distributing the load during those long treks by foot. Anchoring the straps to the middle of the bag lets you secure it to the handle of your rolling luggage for breezing through airports. Reversing the belt turns it into a compression strap to not only make it easier for you to stuff the bag into an overhead compartment when flying, but it also prevents the bag from looking like a turtle shell when fully packed.

The Travel Pack is no slouch when it comes to organization either, with plenty of pockets to help you stay organized even in the most hectic of itineraries. The main compartment offers two mesh pockets for smaller essentials, with easy access to the larger one thanks to YKK zippers on the outside of the pack. Perfect if you need to get to your headphones and don't want to unpack your entire bag. Dual side pockets are perfect for water bottles, but can also hold smaller essentials like battery packs and passports thanks to a zippered closure. Of course, the Travel Pack features a made-in-the-USA, weather- and abrasion resistant nylon construction to be your travel companion for the long haul.

You don’t have to be a backpacker to know how useful a sturdy hip belt can be, and having a dual purpose one in a modern EDC bag is unique to this pack. If you’re looking for a low-key and flexible way to carry your gear on your next trip the DSPTCH Travel Pack checks all the boxes. Hit up the link below to pick one up for yourself.

First Tactical Fathom Dive Watch

But even if you don't plan on taking it for a dip, a dive watch is still a solid choice for everyday wear. The First Tactical Fathom is a rugged yet sophisticated dive watch that wears well both out in the field and out on the town.

Durable from the outside in, it features a Japanese quartz movement and a uni-directional rotating bezel for reliable timekeeping with minimal maintenance. Its TPSiV polymer band will also withstand the rigors of getting wet and drying out on a frequent basis. As an added tactical feature, the watch band has a morse code cheatsheet on its reverse side.

The Fathom wasn't designed to be solely a tool — its sleek styling makes it a timepiece you can wear off duty, too. At 47mm, its has plenty of wrist presence and an extremely legible face thanks to the larger diameter and minimalist markers.

And the hardened mineral crystal will hold up to moderate bumps and inadvertent scratches during daily use.

If you're been looking to add a durable and waterproof watch to your EDC, consider making the First Tactical Fathom your first choice. It's available in two different colors: matte black and titatnium-colored stainless steel. Check out both versions at the link below.

Nitecore BP20 Backpack

When you see the name Nitecore, you probably think of their high quality EDC flashlights. They've earned their place in many EDCs with their long history and large catalog of lights for both tactical and everyday use. More recently, they've taken their utilitarian and feature-driven approach to lights and put it into their first backpack, the BP20. From top to bottom it's got well-thought out features designed to make it the most useful backpack in—and carrying—your EDC.

At its core the BP20 comes with the features expected from a modern tactical backpack. Teflon-coated 1000D nylon gives it a rugged build and abrasion resistance while a full suite of straps and clasps let you adjust the backpack for a streamlined and comfortable carry.

There's also a packable rain cover to complete the pack's waterproofing when the weather is worse than expected.

WESN Titanium Micro Blade

When space is at a premium in your EDC, you might end up leaving your favorite knife at home. Even some smaller everyday carry knife options can be either too big for what you need, or other times, even too small to be anything more than a novelty. What you need is an extremely compact EDC knife that can actually perform. The WESN Titanium Micro Blade is a fully funded Kickstarter project that aims to be just that, designed with a strong set of features you'd expect from a knife twice its size.

The WESN Titanium Micro Blade is an incredibly tiny EDC folding knife that looks built for real use. The excellent utility of the knife starts with its 1.5” AUS8 stainless steel blade. It has a modified drop point shape with a pronounced curve that increases the surface area of the knife and helps it deal with tasks easily, like a larger knife could. The AUS8 composition allows for an ideal mix of sharpness, edge retention, and ease of maintenance. Deployment is also easy thanks to two opening mechanisms: a thumbstud on the blade and a flipper tab on the spine.

Its grade 5 titanium handle helps bring the weight of the knife down to just a single ounce for barely-there pocket or keychain carry. The resilient, springy characteristic of titanium also improves performance of the WESN's frame lock mechanism, which you usually don't see on a knife of this size. On the side is a deep carry pocket clip designed for right-handed carry. Because the knife is only 2.25” when closed, the clip can also double as an effective cash clip for your bills. The hole at the other end of the handle can accommodate lanyard or keychain carry as well. There's even a beautiful leather sheath available for the knife at higher pledges.

It's not often you can look at a tiny EDC knife that inspires confidence in its ability to work for you. The WESN does just that. Make your pledge to the fully-funded Kickstarter to secure a WESN Titanium Micro Blade of your own.
