Pokka Pens

As useful as they are to keep in your pocket, not all pens were designed with carry in mind. Even the ones that are small enough to easily slip into your pocket usually compromise comfort and balance when you actually write with them. For Pokka Pens, the focus on pocket-friendliness is right there in the name. It's all thanks to its clever design that's super compact when closed, but extends to a comfortable length when it's time to write. Best of all, these made-in-the-USA EDC pens don't just save pocket space, they save pocket change too, thanks to their accessible price point.

Upon first look, you'll notice just how small the Pokka Pen measures when it's closed. At under 3.5”, it certainly fits the part as a pocket essential. It features a body that fully nests into its cap, essentially halving the amount of pocket space it takes up. Usually, a pen that short might feel cramped during longer sessions, but the Pokka Pen avoids this by extending to a full-length pen. The cap firmly secures to the back of the pen with a satisfying snap, secured by a clever system of O-rings and ridges. Once extended, the pen reaches a comfortable 5.5” length—just as good for quick notes as it is for extended writing sessions with its included, replaceable ballpoint ink cartridge.

Because they're so lightweight, Pokka Pens are hardly noticeable when carried loose in your pocket. However, you can also use it with an available clip for the added convenience, security, and quick access. No matter how you choose to carry it, the Pokka Pen is compact, lightweight, and comfortable to write with once it's fully extended.

The best part is the Pokka Pen is impressively affordable as far as EDC gear goes. Starting at just over $8 for a pack of three, you can have one to keep in your pocket, one in your bag, and a backup in your car with little investment. To sweeten the deal, Everyday Carry readers will receive an additional 15% off by clicking the link below, with no coupon code required.

Leatherman Signal in 3 New Colors

Discreet, all-black gear has its place in certain EDCs, but a pop of color here and there has its own advantages, too. Whether you're using your tools in the great outdoors and could use the extra visibility, or if you're after a more approachable looking kit, a little color goes a long way. And if there's one tool that looks even better with a fresh new coat, it's Leatherman's outdoor survival multi-tool, the Signal. Besides its eye-catching good looks, the new colorful Signal features a slew of functions specifically for the outdoors, backed by its made-in-the-USA quality and a 25-year guarantee as a high-visibility companion for wherever adventure leads you.

Designed with the outdoors in mind, the Leatherman Signal features both emergency functions along with the usual suite of Leatherman's all-purpose tools. Its adventure-ready features include a ferro-rod for starting fires, a built-in hammer for stakes when pitching a tent, an emergency safety whistle, a diamond-coated sharpener for field maintenance, and a carabiner clip for easy attachment to your hiking pack. A 2.7”, 420HC combo blade confidently can handle your food prep, rope work, whittling, and more thanks to its beefy liner lock. In addition to a saw and usual set of openers and pliers, the Signal also features premium, replaceable 154CM steel wire cutters and a customizable bit driver to round out its functions.

The Signal stays fairly compact at 4.5” when closed, with a manageable 7.5 oz weight to keep things light without sacrificing the essentials. Its included pocket clip also makes it easy to carry should you decide to promote it from a weekend warrior to your daily driver. The Signal is now available in three vibrant new colorways: Aqua with red accents, Cobalt with burgundy accents, and Grey with neon accents. Grab one in your favorite color combo at the link below.

Is the Zebra F-701 Worth it in 2019?

The best pen is the one with you, but if it's the one you accidentally walked out of the doctor’s office with, you might want to up your game. You know the one: the cheapie, plastic ballpoint pen that's uncomfortable to write with and disposable by design, doomed to the garbage bin once it's out of ink. You could opt for a machined metal pen with that buy-it-for-life durability for EDC duty, but those can get spendy real fast. There is, however, one all-metal, tried-and-true clicky pen that doesn't break the bank: the Zebra F-701. It's been a crowd favorite for years, and after some more recent updates, it begs the question: should you still buy one in 2019?

5.11 Tactical AMP12 25L Backpack

When you're hauling gear for multiple missions into constantly changing environments, being able to switch up your loadout on the fly is crucial. Many tactical bags are designed with this modularity in mind, but all too often they end up both cumbersome and conspicuous. If there's one company who can deliver on modularity, organization, and durability in a pack, it's 5.11 Tactical. Their recently released AMP12 25L Pack offers more advanced modularity in a design that weighs less and blends in better to your surroundings compared to their already successful past designs. When you need your kit truly dialed, the AMP12 25L features versatile organization inside and out to cover your bases.

To fill its role as an All Missions Pack, the AMP12 keeps a low-profile exterior like a clean slate, ready to be customized. Don't let its absence of PALS fool you, though — the AMP12 features a large hook-and-loop front panel as the foundation of its modularity. Included with the bag is 5.11's patented HEXGRID load-bearing platform on their Gear Set system attachment. The Gear Set attaches via hook-and-loop to the front of the pack, supported by G-hooks and release buckles. You can pick and choose from this 3-layer security system for your preferred balance of retention versus quick release of your gear. The AMP12 pack and Gear Set system accommodates 5.11's other Gear Set accessories to make transitioning from the field to the city as easy as swapping out one Gear Set for another. And unlike traditional rows of PALS-webbing, the HEXGRID can mount gear at different angles for better ergonomics and more efficient use of space. This level of customizability isn’t exclusive to the exterior either, as it also has an internal loop system you can take advantage of when you need to carry more than usual.

The main compartment opens clamshell style, giving you a full view of the inside of the bag for easy loading and organization. Hook-and-loop paneling lines the interior back panel of the bag as well, giving you the freedom to take a pouch-focused packing approach or keep it minimal for when you travel. On the opposite side you'll find multiple zippered mesh compartments for at-a-glance organization of your smaller gear. The AMP12 is ready for the boardroom to the backcountry too, with a separate compartment along the rear accommodates laptops up to 15” and doubles as a space for a hydration bladder. A 4-way zipper configuration makes for easy access to every part of the main compartment as well.

As for materials, the AMP12 features a water-resistant 500D Dobby nylon build, hitting a sweet-spot of light weight and durability. When you do load the bag up and attach GearSets to it, a tag-team of ergonomic, padded shoulder straps and a thermoformed back panel help manage the load for a comfortable carry. If you've been looking for that one bag to take on the job, on the road, or out on the town, the AMP12 was designed for just that. It's available in classic Black, Ranger Green, Tungsten blue, and Kangaroo brown at the link below.

Is the Maxpedition Falcon-II Worth It In 2019?

Well over a decade ago, there weren't very many options for a good EDC bag. Back in those days, Maxpedition made a name for themselves as a go-to choice for a sturdy, tactical bag. Gear enthusiasts often recommended the 18L Pygmy Falcon, 23L Falcon-II, and the larger 35L Falcon-III for their solid construction, top-notch materials at the time, and ample organizational features. Since their debut in 2003, Maxpedition’s goal was to create bags for law enforcement and military professionals that would stand up to the rigorous conditions in the field. But since then, the landscape and market for bags has drastically changed. Today, we're taking a look back at the Maxpedition Falcon line to see if it has what it takes to be a worthwhile pick in 2019.

Olight Seeker 2 Pro

Innovations in the flashlight scene often tend to go in one of two seemingly opposite directions: portability or raw output. We've seen keychain lights get smaller and smaller, and on the other end, LED-equipped behemoths that push out a monstrous amount of lumens. Fortunately for us EDCers, Olight's latest model brings the innovation they're known for to a sweetspot of pocket-friendliness and power. The new Olight Seeker 2 Pro leverages all-new battery technology to deliver 3200 lumens and a slew of advanced features all in a pocket-sized form factor.

It's easy to marvel at whatever latest-and-greatest LED you'll find in the business end of a flashlight, but the unsung hero of the Olight Seeker 2 Pro would probably be its battery. It's Olight's first light to boast a 21700 battery, an upgrade to the usual 18650 battery in its class that lets the Seeker 2 Pro achieve this next-level performance. The Seeker 2 Pro's custom 21700 battery measures only a few millimeters larger than an 18650 cell, but it ups the capacity from 3600mAh to 5000mAh for much longer runtimes while keeping a sleek silhouette.

Thanks to its battery's excellent capacity-to-size ratio, the Seeker 2 Pro stays compact at just over 5” in length. the head of the light is well-proportioned to the body also, with a 1.38” diameter that tapers to 1.10” through the body. The single-cell barrel of the light offers better ergonomics compared to larger, multi-cell lights, especially in conjunction with milled finger grooves coated with industrial silicone. It gives the light a rubberized feel for a comfortable, non-slip grip.

Above the grip section lies the Seeker 2 Pro's large side switch, complete with built-in brightness and battery indicator lights. Four lights on each side display the lumen setting (400, 800, 1600, and 3200 lumen intervals) and remaining battery (25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% levels) at a glance. The switch grants instant access to moonlight or Turbo mode from the off position, mode memory options, auto-off timers, and lockout modes as well.

Once the light's on, a cluster of three cool white Cree XP-L HD LEDs and total internal reflection optics at the head deliver a smooth, even beam. The Seeker 2 Pro offers 5 brightness mode (as well as a strobe mode), from a 5-lumen low lasting 12 days to a 3200 lumen max output burst for 2 minutes, which steps down to 600 lumens for over two hours. At the other end, you'll find a knurled tailcap with a flat, magnetic base for tailstanding and mounting on metal surfaces, as well as an integrated lanyard attachment point for easy retrieval.

That magnetic base also works with Olight's magnetic charging cable, making recharging the custom Li-ion battery especially convenient. The Seeker 2 Pro also comes with an L-shaped mount to dock the light at work, in the garage, and so on when it's not in use, as well as a holster for easy carry. Last but not least, the Seeker 2 Pro features the durable materials and features you'd expect in an EDC light, like IPX8 water resistance and anodized aluminum construction. You can pick up Olight's latest at the link below.

Dango M007 Limited Edition Wallet

You don't have to be a secret agent to carry stylish gear with hidden functionality. With the right design and materials, even your wallet can both make a statement and save the day. Dango already engineers their line of wallets to deliver that no-compromise functionality with the durability to match, but their new M007 Limited Edition does it with a striking aesthetic that looks right at home as part of Bond's daily arsenal. Based on their recent vertical M1 wallet silhouette, Dango's M007 is a luxe way to carry cash, cards, ID, and a one-piece multi-tool to round out a classy carry.

Based on Dango's latest and greatest design, the M007 is dressed to kill with a high-contrast mix of durable materials: its machined aluminum chassis features a chem-etched gold anodization, while its hand polished nickel backplate shines up to a mirror finish. It wouldn't be a Dango wallet if there was no substance behind the style, though, which is why the aluminum frame features a vertical orientation and four attachment points for multiple retention and carry options. Combined with the nickel backplate, it forms an RFID-secure card cavity for up to 6 cards.

On the reverse side, a low-profile, top-grain black leather card slot pocket stashes around 2-4 cards, bringing the wallet's total capacity to 8-10 cards. Its elongated thumb slot allows for easy push-to-slide retrieval, making it an ideal location for your most frequently used cards and RFID-enabled credentials. For loose bills, overflow cards, and everything else, a black silicone strap holds it all down.

The M007 wouldn't be mission-ready without a few tricks up its sleeve, which is why it comes equipped with Dango's MT04 one piece multi-tool. Lifting the nickel backplate reveals this high carbon steel emergency tool, packed with over 10 functions. It balances day-to-day tools like a pry tip and bottle opener with emergency functions, including an escape hook, serrated and sharpened edges, and even an oxygen tank wrench.

Whether you're looking to make a statement with your wallet, add a touch of class to your carry, or just want to channel your inner Bond for your next mission, the USA-made M007 wallet might fit the bill. Grab this limited release before it's gone from Dango at the link below.

Benchmade Bailout 537

Since its debut in 2017, EDCers have been bugging out over how good of an EDC knife Benchmade's Bugout 535 proved itself to be. It was even voted as the most popular EDC knife of 2018 with our own readers—an especially impressive feat considering the outdoors-inspired, ultralight 535 wasn't originally intended for EDC. Benchmade's new Bailout 537, on the other hand, is. It builds upon the Bugout's winning formula with a few tweaks and improvements to make it better serve as a tactical EDC. The result is a slim and light folder that's tougher, more discreet, and perfectly dialed for urban daily carry.

Similar to the Bugout, the Bailout 537 sports a slim silhouette that's low-profile enough for a tactical EDC. It tacks on a few grams over the ultralight Bugout, measuring at 0.4” thick, 4.7” closed, and 2.05 oz total, but for good reason. The added length offers a better grip for hard use while remaining fairly pocket friendly and lightweight. Other changes to the handle include a flare guard for a more secure grip during hard use and piercing tasks. Its lightweight Grivory handles now come in a discreet, tactical black as opposed to the Bugout's high-vis bright blue, and still offer ample grip with its diamond-shaped texturing. Rounding out the handle is a rear pommel for emergency applications and added carry configurations, made from aluminum for its strength-to-weight ratio.

The Bailout's blade also measures a touch longer at 3.38”, maximizing cutting edge while keeping as light as possible. A tanto blade shape and serrations at the heel of the blade give it all-round performance for piercing, slicing, and cutting through tough materials. Benchmade equipped the Bailout to handle such hard use with CPM-3V tool steel, an exceptionally tough steel that resists wear and chipping. It's even finished with tactical grey Cerakote, a durable ceramic coating commonly used on firearms.

The blade deploys quickly via ambidextrous dual thumbstuds and locks with Benchmade's signature AXIS lock, just like the Bugout and other popular Benchmade EDC knives. And when the Bailout isn't working hard, it rides inconspicuously in the pocket thanks to its slim profile and reversible tip-up deep carry clip. Its integrated aluminum pommel handle also accommodates a lanyard for more carry options. You can finally get your hands on this made-in-USA tactical follow-up to a recent crowd-favorite from Amazon at the link below.

Is the Spyderco Tenacious Worth It in 2019?

When it comes to making no-nonsense tactical knives that are perfect for everyday carry, Spyderco tops the list with high-quality designs made in a manufacturing language that is uniquely their own. There are plenty of everyday carry knives to choose from, but none cut quite the same look and perform the same in hand as a Spyderco. Unfortunately,  you usually have to spend a pretty penny to get your hands on one. But when Spyderco introduced the Tenacious, it turned that idea on its head. That's because the Tenacious was made to provide just about everything that made a Spyderco knife great for EDC at a much more accessible price point than many other Spyderco models. While it was a budget knife, it punched above its weight, making it a strong value for the money that was hard to ignore. But it's been a decade since its introduction, and we've seen a lot of changes in the EDC knife industry since then. So, is the Spyderco Tenacious worth it today? Read on to see whether it's still the choice to make, and how it holds up against the competition.

Kershaw Cinder Copper

Putting together utility, collectibility, and affordability in a compact package that's designed to be carried easily is a winning formula for EDC. Fortunately, Kershaw is no stranger to high-value knives with a low cost of entry. With their new Cinder Copper, they've teamed up with custom knifemaker Rick Hinderer to design the ultimate utility knife. With practical features, touches of Hinderer's bold design language, and an exotic copper accent that only gets better with age, the Cinder is an all-around performer that makes short work of everyday tasks.

Even with just 4” of overall length to work with, Kershaw and Hinderer made sure to make the most out of the Cinder's space. The knife's curves and tight shape are designed to give you a comfortable 3-finger grip that feels good even when choking up for harder cuts. The curved spine on the 1.4” 3Cr13 blade offers a platform for your thumb, while a bottom curve between tang and handle acts as a large finger choil for better purchase. An upswept sheepsfoot shape makes the most of the blade's limited belly, working well with the overall knife shape. And while not ambidextrous, one-handed opening is still possible with a thumb stud on the medial side of the blade.

As its name suggests, the Cinder Copper's key feature is its eye-catching copper handles. It gives a three-fold benefit of displaying the handles' geometric pattern, giving a glimpse and access into the skeletonized liner lock by way of a large cutout, as well as developing a patina unique to the knife's user over time. And while the use of copper seems like it would add a bit of weight, the Cinder only still clocks in at 0.9 ounces. This makes it ideal for its purpose as a keychain utility knife, especially with a backspacer that houses both the Cinder's keychain ring as well as a bottle opener along the top for added functionality.

Kershaw and Hinderer sought to make the ultimate keychain utility knife with the Cinder Copper, and thanks to its solid features, exotic accents, and affordable price, it's hard to disagree. Pick up the Kershaw Cinder Copper from Amazon at the link below.

The James Brand Hell Gap

When you think of a minimalist EDC knife, it's likely you don't have a fixed blade in mind. But when you think of it, a fixed blade is actually the height of minimalist design when it comes to knives: there's no complication involved in folding the blade up and getting it ready to go when you need it. You can simply unsheathe the knife, get to work, and put it right back away while you go about your business. The James Brand has taken that simple formula and mixed it with the minimalist design language that they've become known for in making their brand new Hell Gap knife. The premium materials and made-in-USA construction make it a top-notch, reliable tool, and the smart looks of the design give it an attractive aesthetic and a low profile. Whether you take this knife outdoors to its namesake, the Hell Gap archaeological site in Wyoming, or carry it on your belt as a daily driver, it's a compelling choice for a hard-working EDC.

The blade on the Hell Gap is the star of the show here, with a no-frills design and the performance you'd expect from a knife made of premium materials. Other knives boast about the superior strength and hardness of Crucible S35VN stainless steel, but there are still compromises to be made when it's used on a folding knife. None of that applies to the Hell Gap, which provides you a potent 3.8” saber-ground S35VN edge on a full-tang, fixed blade knife that has no moving parts to fail or collapse on you, even during the roughest of use. The canvas micarta handles will also stand up to wear and tear from use both indoors and outdoors, while the grippy nature of the material offers solid control to make precise cuts. And unlike other fixed blade knife designs that skew towards something out of high fantasy or science fiction, the Hell Gap takes a less-is-more approach with a simple and effective drop point shape. There's a distinct lack of huge branding and tactical cues like aggressive serrations, resulting in a utilitarian look with performance that speaks for itself.

Despite its big performance, the Hell Gap remains relatively small enough for EDC. At 7.8” overall, it's the right size to carry on your belt, in a pocket, or with your gear. To accomplish that, the Hell Gap comes with its own fitted kydex sheath. There's also a lanyard hole at the pommel of the handle for carry that way if you prefer. This makes it easy to find and retrieve if you leave it in the glove compartment of your truck or pack it in a gear bag for a hike, for example.

With the Hell Gap in hand, you have a knife that you can count on when the stakes are highest and you can't trust a folding knife. The James Brand stands by their made in the USA knife with a limited lifetime warranty. Learn more about the James Brand's newest knife, available now at the link below.

FOURSEVENS Mini Turbo MkIII

“Great things come in small packages” has never been more true for the modern flashlight. What used to be a choice between power and size has now simply become a choice of convenience. FOURSEVENS has a long history of making cutting-edge compact lights for EDC, and now under the banner of Prometheus Lights they continue to innovate in both design and tech. The Mini Turbo MkIII packs impressive power and features into a pocket-friendly profile, proving that you don't have to compromise to carry a great flashlight.

This third iteration of FOURSEVENS's Mini Mk series makes two significant upgrades that warrant it a serious look. The first is a larger “Turbo” head that gives the light a bigger smooth reflector (and thus a longer throw), to the tune of 20 meters more than its predecessor. Inside the head resides a new Cree XPL-HI LED in a neutral white tint, which gives you a maximum output of 700 lumens at 4500K (a pleasant 75+ CRI) and a top range of 200 meters. Tint and power are one thing, but the MkIII takes a step further by allowing you to customize its outputs to 6 profiles. With options such as a single High output, access to all modes, or a versatile Low-Medium-High arrangement, the light operates as simple or as complex as you'd like through its twisty interface.

The rest of the MkIII's body is made from 6061-T6 anodized aluminum, with an extra-tough IPX8 rating that's more than capable of rigorous daily tasks. And in spite of its tiny 2.38” length, there's still room to fit a solid clip and a magnetic tailcap that lets you light up those hard to reach spaces. The total package including the MkIII's included high-discharge RCR123A battery barely tips the scales at 1.8 ounces, further cementing its purpose as a capable everyday light.

With enthusiast features and robust construction in a size that's easy to carry, the FOURSEVENS Mini Turbo MkIII earns a spot in any EDCer's pocket. Pick one up from Amazon at the link below.

Benchmade 380 Aller

Compact and highly functional are two features that don't often go together, especially for a pocket tool. But if anyone can pull it off, it's Benchmade. Known best for their robust and popular knives, they designed their new 380 Aller friction folder knife with French knifemakers Patrick Famin and Eric Demongivert to be the ultimate travel companion. The 380 is a one stop shop for six essential functions, legal to carry almost everywhere, and sized in a unique form factor that's perfect for everyday carry.

There are plenty to details in the 380 Aller that reflect the thoughtfulness put into its design, but its most upfront striking feature is its size. When closed, the knife is a mere 3.3”, smaller than just the blade of most production knives. But even while closed the 380 packs a feature punch thanks to a screwdriver/pry tool with built-in bit driver and a bottle opener built into the blade's tang, which also acts as its deployment mechanism. Applying pressure to this exposed tang swings out the 380's 1.6” CPM S30V wharncliffe blade, a premium steel with a good balance of toughness, wear, and corrosion resistance in a versatile shape ideal for precision cuts.

The blade's compact length and non-locking design also lends itself adherence to knife laws the world over, supporting the knife's role as a travel essential. The 380's blade and tools extend from textured G-10 handles, offering a familiar and resilient grip, and a reversible pocket clip and lanyard hole round out its EDC carry options.

Whether looking for your next jetsetting essential or looking to consolidate your everyday tools into a compact, tough platform, the Benchmade 380 Aller is built for everyday versatility. Add one to your pockets by picking it up from Amazon at the link below.

Victorinox Skipper Navy Camouflage

Given how popular 550 paracord is amongst the EDC crowd, being able to handle rope is actually more useful than you might think. To truly master ropework, you should able to tie (and untie) complex knots, and perhaps be able to splice it into smaller strands too. The best tool to have in these situations is a marlin spike, a traditional nautical tool that lets you manipulate rope with ease. But with limited pocket space, carrying a dedicated spike is likely out of the question. The Victorinox Skipper offers the all-round versatility you'd expect from a Swiss Army Knife, but with added functionality to tackle rope work whether you're a DIYer, climber, sailor, and everything in between.

The Skipper's name evokes sea and sail, and the navy camouflage pattern lends it a military edge. And speaking of edges, the Skipper has a combination 4” serrated and plain edge stainless steel blade, making it good for cutting through rough material like rope. The marlin spike flips out of the spine of the tool, where you'll also find a corkscrew handy for when your work is done. The handiness of the tool is further improved with its plethora of screwdriver, bottle and can openers, and even a pair of pliers built into the design. And with its full-sized, ergonomic grip and locking mechanisms, you have full control over all the tools when you need to get to work. At 6.5 ounces in weight, it's not too heavy for your pockets and the ring at the pommel lets you attach a lanyard to the tool if you prefer.

And even if you don't plan to work with rope on a regular basis, the unique mix of tools and more substantial design of the Skipper makes it an interesting option to consider if you're been looking for a SAK in general. Aside from the camouflage treatment, the Skipper is also available in a nautical blue handle as well.

Is the Nitecore Tube Worth It in 2019?

The best flashlight is the one you have on you. For a lot of EDCers that means a keychain flashlight is the way to go. They're compact and lightweight, immensely practical and can work well in a pinch. In the past though, keychain lights tended to have poor build quality, inconvenient batteries that drained quickly, and not enough output to do serious work. But as LED flashlight technology improved, keychain lights became capable enough to replace even some larger, traditional primary flashlights. The Nitecore Tube was a revolutionary, innovative light at the time, packing impressive brightness and versatility with modern quality of life improvements in a sleek, lightweight build—all at an incredible value. But as we've seen how quickly flashlight technology advances, is the Nitecore Tube still worth it today? Read onto find out how it holds up and if your keyring could use a more modern upgrade.
