Leatherman FREE™ T-Series

When you’re in a bind and something needs fixing on the spot, the best tool is most likely whatever you have on you. But there’s nothing as effective as having the right tool for the job—after all, you know it’s not practical to try and punch a hole through leather with a drill, nor cut open boxes with a chef’s knife. And as much as your EDC multi-tool is built to handle every task under the sun, sometimes a little goes a longer way. As the next in line in Leatherman’s FREE collection of tools, the T-Series models were redesigned end-to-end with everyday carry as a priority, both in their functionality and in their size. With the right number of functions in a profile that’s easy to use, carrying them actually means having the best tools on you.

Spearheading the T-Series is the T4, which brings 12 functions to bear in a 3.6“, 4.3 oz package. Many familiar tools from the FREE P-Series make an appearance, such as a 420HC knife, spring-action scissors, an assortment of drivers, openers, a heavy-duty file, and even a detachable pair of tweezers. You can deploy all the tools one-handed thanks to the FREE’s magnetic architecture and cam lock system, making them buttery smooth to open, locked in place while in use, and as easy to close up when you’re finished with your tasks. Despite being designed as a pocket-friendly multi-tool with a slightly smaller stature, these tools come with the same quality found on its P-Series brothers, which means functionality that punches well above what you expect out of a palm-sized tool. And when you’re ready to grab the T4 and go, its included and removable pocket clip gives it a secure spot in your EDC.

If space is a high priority and weight is at a premium for your pockets, then the slimmer T2 might be a better option for your carry. Weighing 3.3 oz (an ounce lighter than the T4) with a more compact rear geometry, it trades in the scissors, tweezers, file, and pocket clip to be a better, sleeker fit for smaller pockets. That said, 8 functions are still at your disposal, including the 2.2" 420HC blade and an essential assortment of drivers and openers. If the T4 is a "best of" compact multi-tool, then think of the T2 as a fully-loaded folding knife.

No matter which you choose, the made in the USA construction, unique magnetic opening and closing system, and Leatherman guarantee make the T-Series a compelling addition to round out (or slim down) your EDC. Find the best option for you on the Leatherman site at the link below.

Knack Pack: Expandable Laptop Backpack

Having one bag that can do it all seems like an increasingly unattainable goal at this point. It isn’t hard to find a single bag that can the job done while traveling, but finding a bag that excels at both travel and everyday use is a different story. The Knack Pack is an expandable laptop backpack that aims to get it just right, replacing the need for multiple bags. Its features make it perfect for traveling for a few days, as well as loading it up with your everyday essentials for the morning commute to work.

One thing you never want, regardless of where you are, is a bulky backpack. The Knack Pack's hybrid design maintains a slim profile when both compressed for when you're packing light, or expanded at full capacity. It's available in two sizes, medium and large, to suit a wider range of loadouts. 

The Knack Pack features hardware and materials you'd want in a bag, whether for daily carry or travel. After all, the Knack team spent years perfecting the Knack Pack before bringing it to the market with attention to detail you'd expect from a founding team made up of professionals from Tumi, The North Face, and Coach. For example, to fend off unexpected rain and keep its contents dry, the bag was constructed from a custom-built water-resistant 1200 denier two-tone polyester. To round out its heavy duty hardware, the Knack Pack features Duraflex buckles. Combine all that with a padded, breathable back panel and custom designed straps, and you have a comfortable, durable carry. The Knack Pack also protects your more easily damaged items with soft fleece lining, found in both the sunglasses pouch and in the interior tablet pocket.

While the exterior was built to last, its the clever organization options you’ll find upon opening the bag that make this such a versatile option. The Knack Pack includes numerous pockets and sleeves to make it easier to find your gear on the go, or streamline the packing process to get you out the door quickly. Two zippered mesh pockets hold any small essentials you might want to keep secure but still have access to when you need them, such as your passport or emergency cash. A zippered side pocket keeps your water bottle handy but hidden, maintaining the pack's sleek exterior appearance. The bottom pocket on the pack was specially designed to store and manage long, bulky laptop charging cables without tangling them up, too.

The Knack Pack divides its storage into two main compartments and a laptop sleeve. In the main everyday carry-focused compartment you'll find a fleece-lined sleeve to store a few notebooks or folders, over-ear headphones, or a tablet for binge-watching Netflix on long flights. Then there's the expandable suitcase compartment that differentiates the Knack Pack from the rest. It opens clamshell-style for easy access and packing. The medium Knack Pack holds 2-3 outfits (the Large holds up to 4) with minimal wrinkling, though you should be able to stretch that to even more if you use Knack's packing cubes and an army roll.

Then there’s the hidden compartment specially designed for travel packing, which comes complete with straps to hold up to 4 outfits in place with minimal wrinkling, though you should be able to stretch that to even more if you make use of the versatile Knack packing cubes and an army roll. Last but not least, you can stash your laptop in a padded compartment accessible via a secure side zipper. The medium Knack Pack fits up to a 15-inch laptop, while the large Knack Pack fits up to a 17-inch laptop. The dedicated zip compartment makes grabbing your laptop a snap, rather than having to rummage through the rest of your gear to get to it.

Whether you're using it as a work backpack or as a carry-on for vacation, the Knack Pack easily adapts to whatever situation you find yourself in. If you’re ready to take the jump to just one bag that can do it all, check out the Knack Backpack in its various sizes and color options at the link below.

Studio Proper Wireless Charging Dock for AirPods

Designed for Apple’s AirPods, the Proper Wireless Charging Dock is a sleek and elegant station to store and charge your earbuds. With a minimalist design that never gets in your way, keeping your AirPods topped up and ready to go for your day has never been easier.

There are no frills needed when it comes to the Proper charging dock. It’s a weighty block of anodized aluminum machined precisely to the shape of the AirPods case. A simple, two-tone design in white and silver accents a minimalist desk aesthetic even by itself, while a flat, tangle-free USB Type-C to Type-A power cable adds no extra bulk to the overall package.

No more having to fumble for an old Lightning cable to stay charged; your earbuds will always be ready for duty as soon as you step away from your desk.

WANDRD DUO Daypack

Unless you’re handy with packing cubes and pouch organizers, you’re better off with an EDC bag that’s organized from the get-go. By making sure every essential in your daily carry has its own place, your gear becomes easier to load, protect, and retrieve as you go about your day. And if your days involve long commutes, travel, photoshoots, or working out of a mobile office like the team at WANDRD’s do, then their latest project could be just the bag you need. The WANDRD DUO Daypack takes the stress of organizing your constantly-changing setups out of the equation with its durable, stylish, and easy-to-access design that puts everything in its place.

One of the key features that lets the DUO Daypack excel in both ease of access and internal organization is WANDRD’s InfiniteZip system. Four zippers along the main compartment’s U-shaped opening lets you access any part of the bag, from the top or from either side, without having to unzip the entire compartment or take the bag off. But once you do fully unzip the compartment, its side panels and front portion fan out to reveal its impressive array of internal organizational pockets. There’s a padded laptop compartment, small and large mesh pockets for at-a-glance visibility of your essentials, and even elastic cord organizers to keep your tech tidy.

Another clever feature unique to the DUO Daypack is its built-in, collapsible pop cube at the base of the bag. It’s padded and structured enough to keep your camera gear or lenses safe on the go, or to separate your shoes from your clean clothes whether you’re off to the gym on a long flight. It folds down and out of the way if you’d rather use more of the 20L backpack’s main compartment. Lastly, a quick-access stash pocket on the front of the bag makes for the perfect place to keep small items like keys or sunglasses.

While the DUO Daypack’s interior might steal the show, WANDRD didn’t skimp on materials and hardware found on the exterior of the bag. The majority of the exterior is made from a waterproof Jr. Ballistic nylon at a lighter 840D to keep the bag at 2.6lbs. For better abrasion resistance, a denser 1680D Ballistic Nylon makes up the base of the bag. The DUO Daypack handles rain in stride thanks to PU-coated, weather-resistant YKK zippers and a water-repellent coating on the exterior. EVA foam in the back panel makes for a cool and comfortable carry, while durable nylon seatbelt webbing on the pull handles let you grab and go with peace of mind. To make traveling easier, the DUO Daypack features a pass-through slot to slip the bag onto your luggage, as well as a zippered pocket on the back for secure, quick access to your passport.

Whether you’re looking to live your best one bag life on your next adventure or you just like staying organized on your way to the office, the WANDRD DUO Daypack was designed to handle it all. The campaign has already been completely funded on Kickstarter and WANDRD has a solid track record of successful campaigns for performance bags already, so you there’s no guesswork involved here. Make sure to click the link below to learn all about the rest of the DUO's many features and secure one at a special pre-order price for your carry before the campaign ends on Friday, July 26th.

Lansky C-Sharp & Deluxe 5-Stone Sharpening System

A sharp knife is a safe knife, but even the finest everyday carry blades will become dull through the rigors of daily use. And if you don’t have your own way of sharpening and maintaining your blades, it won’t matter whether your knife is made of expensive super-premium M390 steel or more affordable 8Cr13MoV because it won’t cut through anything anyways. The good news is that sharpening your knives isn’t a hard thing to do at all, especially if you have modern tools like the ones made by Lansky. Take the C-Sharp pocket tool for example, which is small enough to keep in your pockets or with the rest of your gear when you’re on the go. Then there’s their Deluxe 5-Stone System for more considered sharpening and honing when you’re at home. These are some of the best sharpeners in the business, and with them you can breathe new life into your dull knives, and save yourself a lot of trouble in the process too.

The Lansky C-Sharp is simple to use: you place the tool upright on a table and then pull your knife through any one of the V-shaped sharpening slots until you have a sharp knife. Each slot contains 600 grit ceramic sharpening materials, arranged in specific angles for the edge you’re trying to maintain, including the most common ones: 17, 20, 25, and 30 degrees. You should use the angle that corresponds most closely to the original grind of your knife but as a rule of thumb: the thinner the angle, the sharper your knife will be but it will potentially make things more brittle depending on the steel composition of the blade. And for knives with a single-sided edge, like chisel-style blades and Japanese cooking knives, there’s a larger 800 grit benchstone at the top of the tool. That benchstone also comes in handy when you’re trying to sharpen serrations as well.

For bigger, more considered sharpening tasks at home, the Lansky Deluxe 5-Stone System is your best bet. Unlike the C-Sharp, the Deluxe has a clamp that holds your blade in place, and you move the sharpening stones across the blade until your knife is sharp. There are slots on the clamp that correspond to the same set of common angles, letting you keep the right blade geometry on your knife, but the main difference is that there’s varying levels of coarseness on each stone included with the system. This lets you sharpen the edges on your knife in progressive steps. There’s extra-coarse grits for fixing really dull and damaged knives, medium and fine grit stones for regular maintenance, and an ultra-fine grit stone for getting razor-sharp performance. The complete system includes everything you’d need to maintain your blades, including honing oil, the multi-angle clamp, guide rods, and a carrying case to store them all neatly.

There’s no excuse for having a dull knife, but these Lansky sharpeners make the task of sharpening and maintaining your knives easy to accomplish. And the best part is these sharpeners won’t put a huge dent in your wallet: now through July 18, 2019, Everyday Carry readers can save 25% off the C-Sharp and all Controlled-Angle Systems at the link below with coupon code EDC19 at checkout. Think of them as an investment in the longevity of your trusty EDC knives. Pick up a sharpening tool or system at a discount at the link below.

StatGear SwissQlip

As common as Swiss Army Knives (or SAKs) may be in the pockets of hundreds of EDCers, there’s always been a key feature missing from their functionality. We’ve gotten used to handy pocket clips on our knives, flashlights, and keychains, but the popular multi-functional knives have stayed true to their original designs, which means no clip to be found on any of their scales. There have been many efforts to customize SAK scales to add a clip, but Clip & Carry, a new brand by StatGear, may have the feature on lock. The SwissQlip is an easily attachable pocket clip that gives SAKs the pocket staying power you’ve been looking for, so EDCing a Swiss Army Knife is easier than ever.

The best thing about the medium 91 mm Swiss Army Knives is the pure feature per size ratio. You get upwards of a dozen functions all in a sleek and compact form factor that fits as well in your hand as it does in your pocket. Problem is, without the clip and with the smooth scales, the tool has a tendency to travel around empty spaces. By clipping onto the integrated keyring loop present on nearly every 91 mm SAK, the SwissQlip solves that problem by giving your favorite tool a removable clip. The patent pending design is made from stainless steel, and the final design will allow a much deeper pocket carry than the prototype images. And the best part is your multi-tool retains all its functions, even the slide out toothpick and tweezers your model may have.

The Clip & Carry SwissQlip just might be the missing link to unlock the true EDC capability of your favorite 91 mm Swiss Army Knife. Check out the already-funded campaign at Indiegogo at the link below, and pledge for your choice of SwissQlip in polished chrome or a matte black finish.

Dango Coin Capsule

Until we move to a completely cashless society, we’re unfortunately stuck with cold, hard, currency. Coins especially can be a pain due to their weight and irregular sizes. Carrying them in the pocket is bad enough thanks to the jangle and damage they could cause to other items carried with them, but pulling them out to pay is just as bad as you try and hunt-and-peck your way through a handful. There have been attempts to solve this problem with tools like a coin dispenser, but for Dango, it’s worth taking to the next level. Their new Coin Capsule is an overbuilt coin system that’s designed to do one thing and do it well: make managing coins simple and efficient. It’s a great way to stack, store, and spend your coins while integrating with the rest of your EDC.

The Coin Capsule’s design houses the five unique coin sizes of American currency between two slabs of machined 6061 aerospace-grade aluminum. The “lid” twists into the main body, and comes with three slits that line up with the coin compartments and make them easier to pinch out an exact number when you’re ready to cash out. There’s space for up to $5.44 in change: 16 quarters, 10 dimes, 7 nickels and 9 pennies. The simple design wastes no space and makes the most of its space, compared to all that change loose in your pockets.

Carrying the Coin Capsule is just as simple. You have an option to either clip it to your pants or bag by way of a stainless steel clip, or integrate with the rest of your gear by way of a tether loop hole. And speaking of integrating, you have a choice of satin silver or anodized jet black colorways for the Capsule, letting you match it perfectly with the rest of your EDC.

With its unique and specific design, the made in the USA Dango Coin Capsule addresses a unique American problem with the fit and finish you’ve come to expect from the brand. Change it up by checking it out at Dango’s site at the link below.

Deep Blue Daynight Tritium PC Diver

No matter your EDC setup, chances are a rock-solid dive watch can fit right in. If you’re on the market for a serious watch with wrist presence and a light weight, look no further than Deep Blue’s new Daynight Tritium PC Diver. No stranger to producing capable dive watches, Deep Blue brings tactical flair to their newest watch with a sleek, blacked-out poly carbon case and aggressive timing bezel. One thing that’s even more impressive than the Daynight Tritium PC’s bevy of tritium tubes and distinct design details is its sheer value, as Everyday Carry readers get an exclusive discount on this tactical timepiece.

What sets the Deep Blue Daynight Tritium PC apart from the rest is the ample use of tritium gas tubes for optimum nighttime visibility. Instead of using a luminous paint for the dial and hands (which require light to charge up and only lasts a few hours at best), there are 15 T25 tritium tubes placed throughout the dial, hands, and bezel. At 12 o’clock, you’ll notice an orange tube marker, while the hands, hour markers, and bezel lume pip all feature a green tube. These “always” on luminous tubes are easy to see in dark conditions and the orange highlight at 12 makes the time easy to read with such a prominent reference point. Your watch will glow for up to 25 years without ever having to see daylight for a charge.

The Daynight Tritium PC Diver isn’t just about fancy glowing tubes, the other specs are above and beyond what you’d need in a daily watch. At an impressive 45mm, the case manages to stay light thanks to the durable and impact-resistant poly carbon case. It sits 13mm tall on the wrist with a 51mm lug-to-lug distance. The result is a watch that wears large, but not unwieldy thanks to its reasonable lug-to-lug length and thinner profile. Inside the watch, you’ll find a reliable Swiss-made Ronda 515 quartz movement with date function that will keep on ticking for 45 months without a battery change and keep time to -10/+20 seconds per month. The case is crafted to withstand up to 200m of water resistance, which is more than enough for splashes, hand-washings, and even swimming.

One of the best parts about the Daynight Tritium PC is the price. It starts at only $249, but for a limited time, Everyday Carry readers can score a Daynight Tritium PC at a significant discount. At checkout, use code “edc” for a final price of $149. You’d be hard-pressed to find another watch that’ll take a beating like the Daynight Tritium PC in this price range.

Dango P02 Pioneer Travel Wallet

There’s no denying that traveling is a unique experience. You get to see the world, experience a wealth of food and culture, and even put some of your EDC to good use. But travel comes with its unique challenges, too, especially when it comes to what you keep in your pockets. When you’re managing boarding passes, foreign currency, and travel passes on top of everything else you’re carrying, sometimes a little help goes a long way. Dango’s new P02 Pioneer travel wallet is just the ticket, with its jet set-ready features and the fit and finish Dango is known for. And with some extra functionality that makes it convenient and useful to EDC, the P02 is worth a spot on your next itinerary.

As expected from a robust travel wallet, the P02 isn’t lacking for storage. From currency to cards, passports to keys, and even space for a phone, you’ll have all your travel essentials easily accessible, all with ample RFID protection. There’s a special slot along the wallet’s spine for Dango’s own optional pen, and thanks to a through-hole design you can grab it while the wallet is both open and closed. Speaking of closing, the clasp that holds the P02 closed is actually a compact multi-tool with 5 functions, including a chisel, bottle opener, 1/4“ hex socket, and 2 drivers, so even if you’re not able to travel with your full EDC, you still have tools at your disposal. Rounding out the wallet is an external water-resistant pocket that’s a good spot for small items like loose change or often-used transport cards.

Since the P02 is built for travel, it comes with Dango’s premium DTEX material, a rugged, flexible, and weather-resistant non-leather synthetic textile. The wallet also gives you a few options for carry; you can slip it on its own into a pocket or bag, or carry it like a sling with its included nylon webbing strap. Either way, at 6.6“ x 4.33” the P02 remains as compact as possible for ease of transit, bigger than your usual wallet but smaller than most travel folios.

Whether off on a business trip or exploring the world on your next adventure, the Dango P02 wallet is the travel wallet that can go the extra mile. Pick one up from Dango at the link below.

How Tim Leatherman and Our Readers EDC the FREE P Series

The allure of seeing someone's everyday carry doesn't stop at the actual gear they have in their pockets. It's also just as interesting to learn where it all goes and how they carry their gear. EDCers are a creative bunch, and often come up with clever solutions to make carrying and using their essentials that much quicker and easier. In the same way, Leatherman's new FREE series of tools aim to be that much faster and easier to use. In this round-up, we're highlighting how members in our community shape their EDC around their new FREE P series tools, as well as taking a peek inside the pockets of Leatherman's founder himself, Tim Leatherman. For some great ideas on what to carry with the new Leatherman FREE P series tools, check out these awesome submissions below.

PRIM Modular Urban Bags

Adapting to what you need at any particular moment is a quality of any solid EDC, and it’s why multi-tools are so popular. But EDC isn't just about what you carry, it's about how you do it too—and finding a similar level of adaptability in a single bag that's still suitable for daily carry is a tall order. That's why the team at Creatio Design went with a divide and conquer approach when building out their PRIM bag system. Rather than having a single, bulky bag that forces you to carry your gear in one particular way, they've developed a modular system constructed from tactical performance materials with a “less is more” philosophy to let you carry only what you need, when you need it. The collection of three swappable bags can mix-and-match to hit the sweetspot of capacity and portability your carry needs, while their robust internal organization consolidates everything in a streamlined way.

If you find yourself constantly emptying and repacking your bag every time you leave the house, then the PRIM line of bags might be for you. The low-key, all-black design is perfect for the urban commuter, and the tough build should hold up to your morning commute with no problem. Forgetting your umbrella in a rainstorm isn't the end of your gadgets either thanks to the water resistant Cordura 500D exterior and watertight YKK zippers that keep the contents of your bag dry. Plus, the ergonomic backload system curves to the shape of your back and has a few nifty features of its own. Take the breathable padding which helps you avoid a sweaty back during long days, or the hidden RFID pocket which provides added security in unfamiliar places. Then there's how many different ways you can carry your gear. Whether you want to carry a traditional backpack, something smaller with a chest rig, or something more ergonomic with their sling configuration, these bags can handle it all.

The versatility doesn’t end with how you carry either. All the bags take inspiration from military-style modularity while remaining true to the company’s less is more beliefs. You won’t have any issues with internal organization thanks to mesh pockets and plenty of compartments, and the outside is MOLLE compatible for even more customization. The entire line consists of five different bags that you can mix and match depending on your needs. The base models are the Y13 or Y15 bags, and they vary only in size depending on whether your laptop is 13” or 15”. The next size down is the X11 and XS11 pouches which are handy on their own, but become something special when you consider how they can be quickly mounted to the base pack. One pouch that holds your tablet and a few charging cables throughout the week can be easily swapped after work for another that holds some toiletries and travel essentials for a quick weekend away. The last is the belt/leg pack, which is perfect for when pockets aren’t enough and you just need to hold a few extra items without carrying an entire bag all day. It can also be worn as a mini sling bag as a convenient, minimalist option for when you're traveling light.

If you’re tired of lugging around large bags for just a few extra items, the PRIM collection might be for you. It helps streamline your gear into your most-used kits for a more grab-and-go approach to EDC. For a closer look at the campaign make sure to click the link below.

BOLDR Supply Co. Venture Field Watch

If you check what's on an EDCer's wrist, there's a good chance it'll be a field watch. This style is especially popular among the everyday carry crowd, and for good reason: field watches are simple, durable, reliable, and just plain work. BOLDR Supply Co. put their own unique spin on the classic field watch with their new “Venture” model. Designed to be a near-unbreakable watch, the Venture outfits a tried-and-true military design with a light and rugged titanium case. The rest of its specs are set to impress too, especially for a watch that'll run you less than $150. To sweeten the deal, Everyday Carry readers can save an additional 15% with an exclusive promo code.

Typically, you don’t get as much utility out of a budget watch in terms of both features and materials. That isn't the case with the Venture as it forgoes the cheaper, commonly used brass or steel cases for a solid, aerospace-grade titanium build. The result is a lightweight and durable watch that can take a beating. A modern (and more interesting) case design really makes the watch stand out from other field watches. For example, the lugs sport some interesting angularity that brings a rugged, industrial look to the otherwise softened edges of the round case. The well-balanced proportions tie everything together visually, with the watch measuring in at a versatile 38mm case diameter, 45mm lug-to-lug width, and a low profile 11mm height.

Inside the watch, there’s a reliable Swiss-made ETA Quartz movement with up to three years of battery life.

Benchmade 318-2 Proper Carbon Fiber

Taking a classic and making it feel brand new, if not even better than the original, is no easy task. But judging by its popularity in the EDC community, the recently released Benchmade Proper delivered as a modern version of a classic gent's folding knife with its attractive mix of a refined, timeless design and premium, high-performance materials. Now, Benchmade's newest addition to the Proper family, the 318-2, takes both style and performance to the next level. It features a more modern look and feel thanks to its lightweight yet robust carbon fiber scaling, paired with a premium S90V steel blade. For fans of the original, the Proper 318-2 debuts as a sophisticated upgrade for a classy EDC.

Despite the more modern cut of the new Proper knife, it retains its timeless modern gent's features. The blade remains a compact 2.82” clip-point, manually opened with a nick on the blade and held in place lightly with a slipjoint mechanism. But unlike your grandfather's old knife, the new Proper is made out of premium CPM-S90V stainless steel for better edge retention, and a higher hardness rating ranging from 59-61 HRC compared to the original Proper's S30V blade. Also new with this variant of the knife is its distressed stonewash on the blade, which makes for a more discreet carry compared to the original's shinier finish.

And where the original Proper knife had canvas Micarta handles, the new 318-2 features an attractive carbon fiber scaling on the handles that matches well with the darker blade and the black stainless steel hardware on the knife. The use of carbon fiber also makes the new Proper approximately 0.1 ounce lighter than the original, at 2.11 ounces in total. Either way, the new Proper makes for a very convenient carry option in your pockets, sitting comfortably until you need it.

If you've been on the fence about picking up a Benchmade Proper, this new, more modern carbon fiber variant represents the best so far. With improved steel and a look that's more modern yet still timeless and practical, this knife is a great choice for you to pick up today at the link below.

Dango M2 Maverick Wallet

When it comes to EDC, durability never goes out of style. Case in point: Dango's newest M2 Maverick wallet. It improves upon the bombproof, CNC-machined aluminum chassis from their flagship vertical wallet with a hand-polished, nickel-plated finish. It not only adds luxe looks and a premium feel, but it also makes this functional pocket bling even tougher thanks to the nickel plating's high hardness. If you're looking to dress up your carry, slim down your pockets, and make a statement all in one go, the Dango M2 is built for the task.

To keep things fast and light, the M2 Maverick sports a single pocket design with three leather variations to choose from: Jet Black, Whiskey Brown, and Raw Leather. The single pocket features an elongated thumb slot in its top grain leather section to more easily slide out your cards. The pocket holds around 4 of your most frequently used cards, while an RFID-blocking cavity on the reverse side ups the total capacity to 10 cards. A sturdy silicone strap holds it all together and keeps cash and overflow in its place. For such a slim wallet, you're not sacrificing much capacity to keep bulk to a minimum.

The standout feature of the M2 lies right at the surface: a premium nickel-plated coating that's polished by hand to a mirror finish. It adds a cool, slick contrast to the leather section's organic feel, all while upping the durability with its enhanced hardness. And while the M2 easily slips into a pocket, it offers many more carry options thanks to four loop holes at the corners of its aluminum chassis. You can use them as attachment points for straps, lanyards, keychains, and tethers depending on where, how, and with what you choose to carry it. For a truly maxed-out setup, you can pair the M2 with Dango's MT04 card-sized multi-tool as a sleek way to cover your bases. Be sure to check out all three variants of Dango's high-end, made-in-USA flagship wallet at the link below.
