Dango Capsule XL

Chances are you can't afford to lose the things you keep in your EDC in case of emergency. Things like cash, medication, and your usual survival kit essentials shouldn't be carried loose in your pocket with the rest of your gear, especially when losing them when you need them can mean the difference between life and death. That's where stash capsules come in handy: they keep small items safe, dry, and at the ready. Dango's newest Capsule XL offers the same watertight and practically bombproof aluminum construction with even more capacity, making it a versatile addition to your kit.

Dango Capsules are precision-machined in the United States out of lightweight 6061 aluminum, and they are anodized to be food safe. That means it's okay to stash your medication inside without having to worry about metal poisoning, something you can't be sure of with cheaper solutions from questionable sources. The aluminum's excellent strength-to-weight ratio keeps the items you stash inside safe from crushing without adding much bulk. The capsules are also built to be waterproof up to 1000 feet.

The Capsules come in two different sizes, at 0.85 inches for the small version and 2.95 inches for the larger XL. The smaller Capsule is perfect for pills, small batteries, and other tiny and easily lost pieces of gear. The XL is sized just right to carry an emergency stash of cash or survival gear. Both can also be used to carry liquid inside, if needed. And the best part is each Capsule is designed with a quad loop security cap that lets you attach it to your pants, your bag, or other gear to help prevent against loss.

You owe it to yourself to keep the smallest and most important items safe. Dango Capsules can help you do just that. You can pick both the Capsule and the Capsule XL today for a low price that includes a paracord hook tether. Check them out and find one in a color to match your EDC at the website below.

Dango MT02 Card Tool

While multi-tools are convenient for handling daily tasks, they tend to be pretty bulky to carry. But not all multi-tools have to weigh you down or take up all your pocket space. Instead of being a brick in your pocket, Dango's MT02 multi-tool is designed to integrate with your other daily essential—your wallet—to give you 14 functions while still slipping into your carry with ease. It's a unique and robust addition to your EDC that's able to pull its own weight while making the most of what you're already carrying.

On its own the MT02 is not your ordinary card-sized tool. Rather than a flimsy strip of metal with a rudimentary set of functions, it's machined from a thick slab of high-carbon stainless steel so you'll never have to fear bending or breaking it. These are arranged on the outer edge of each of the MT02's sides and corners, with the center cutout acting as a grip that gives ample clearance for your knuckles.

The way the main sides work is the MT02 sits either flush with its compatible wallets (the Dango T01 Tactical or D01 Dapper wallets) to expose the bottle opener along the bottom via the wallets' push notch, or by sitting halfway out of the wallets to give you access to the full set of tools along the side. Index points on the short sides of the MT02 lock the tool into place into compatible notches on both wallets during use, giving you a full-handed grip that also puts their knurling on the bottom edge to good use.

Using this half-open, full-grip configuration, you're ready to get to cutting with either the MT02's serrated saw edge/blade along its top side, opening with its 1/4” hex wrench or can opener on its top corner, or, by flipping the MT02 around, get more options for wrenches and drivers with its bottom edge. That's not all, of course. You can also take the tool out on its own to make use of its additional functions, including a ruler, rope tensioner, and even a phone stand.

Whether by itself or as a utility upgrade to your Dango wallet, the MT02 ticks all the boxes of a useful everyday multi-tool. You can pick one up direct from Dango at the link below.

Dango Slate Grey D01 Dapper Wallet

You don't always need your gear to be “tactical” if you want it to be tough. Case in point: Dango's D01 wallet skews more towards the “dapper” look without sacrificing durability. And now you can keep a low-profile without resorting to the all-black, tactical look with the Dango D01 in Slate Grey. Originally a limited edition, Slate is here to stay, giving you another option for a rugged, minimalist EDC wallet with an anti-bling appeal.

The Slate D01 starts with its CNC-machined aluminum frame, offering structure and strength without the bulk or weight. Top grain leather comprises the main storage section of the wallet for a slim profile and luxurious feel in hand. Finally, a silicone band serves as a simple and easy way to keep the wallet and any loose bills secure. And despite the compact size, it can accommodate up to 12 cards. Other useful features round out the D01, including a built-in bottle opener, RFID shielding, and a lanyard attachment point for more ways to carry.

You can grab the once-limited Slate Grey D01 at a new low price at the link below.

Dango Belt and Belt Fob Bundle

Making the most out of every piece of gear is what EDCers do best, from their most functional multi-tool down to something as simple as a belt. More than a piece of leather that keeps your pants in check, a belt gives you extra space and potential for even more utility, something Dango have already done with their Dango Belt. Now they're introducing more functionality with their new Belt Fob, a companion accessory that fits perfectly on the belt that gives you even more options for EDC and security.

The Dango Belt itself comes in two parts: a strap handmade in the USA from Italian vegetable-tanned leather, and a 7-piece buckle machined from high-strength but lightweight 7075 aluminum. The buckle also holds a capsule that integrates into its frame, a discreet part of its design that gives you a space to hold small essentials such as pills, matches, or a secret stash for cash.

The Belt Fob itself is made from the same Italian vegetable-tanned leather in Jet Black or Whiskey Brown. It matches the Dango Belt perfectly, or accommodates belt widths up to 2.1” if you'd like to match it to one you already own.  It can also act independently as a key fob, with its stainless steel hardware acting as a tether point for keys or for securing your phone or wallet pairing nicely with Dango's other products.

Carry well, carry safely, but above all, carry in style. You can pick up the Dango Belt and Belt Fob Bundle in your choice of size and color direct from Dango at the link below.

Kershaw Faultline

At the end of the day, the EDC knife in your pocket is a tool first and foremost. So when you need a solid tool knife for the job, you should reach for something that's built to last and designed to put in hard work. The new Kershaw Faultline delivers the performance and design cues you'd expect from a much larger, beefier knife, but dials in the proportions to make it a comfortable and compact EDC. It has the design and materials that make for a perfect companion to your toolbox with more modern features fit for daily carry as well.

One look at the Faultline's blade should tell you it's a utilitarian knife with a tactical edge. It features 8Cr13MoV steel with a durable black oxide coating to bolster its corrosion resistance. The 3” clip point blade gives plenty of cutting edge while keeping fairly compact. The overall shape handles both slicing and piercing well, while jimping that extends from the tip of the blade down to the back of the spine provides unparalleled grip and blade control, even when you're wearing gloves.

Opening the knife is easy too, thanks to Kershaw's KVT ball bearing system and flipper tab. It flicks open and stays in place via a sturdy, inset liner lock. The handle of the Faultline is made from comfortably contoured glass-filled nylon with a rubber overmold on top. The result is a knife that's easy on the hands and easy to control in all conditions. Learn more about this rugged knife and pick one up for yourself via the link below.

Who else loves free EDC gear? This week, we're hooking up one lucky reader with a versatile belt brought to you by our sponsor, Dango Products.

Their debut into utility essentials aims to give you both form and function to make the most of your everyday clothing.

Nodus Lofold Wallet

You'd think finding a solid EDC wallet would be fairly straight forward, but it often turns out to be far from the truth. A good wallet doesn't just hold your cards — it should organize them, protect them, and make them convenient to use and access. Nodus checks all those boxes with their line-up of EDC wallets while also adding handy features like cash-, coin-, and key pockets. Their newest bifold, the Lofold, brings all of that functionality to a more compact footprint, making it the perfect fit for shorter currencies like US or Canadian dollars. All this, plus a gorgeous veg-tan leather build makes the Lofold a strong contender for your next wallet.

The Nodus Lofold might just be your all-in-one solution for carrying the essential cards, IDs, and cash you need on a daily basis. It has enough space to carry 11 cards with plenty of organization depending on how and when you need to use your cards. Frequently used cards like your ID, debit, and credit card get their own space thanks to three easy access card slots. For the rest of your cards you need with you, there's a stash pocket on the inside of the billfold section to keep them all in one spot.

The Lofold keeps those cards secure from fraudsters with its built-in RFID shielding. But its innovative design also lets you leave a single card unshielded so you can use it for contactless payments or building entry when needed. Carrying cash is super simple too, as the billfold section is designed to accommodate cash without needing to fold it beforehand. There's even a dedicated slot for your house key, helping you further consolidate your carry.  

But beyond the practicality, you'll also appreciate the premium feel of the supple, vegetable-tanned Italian leather on the Lofold wallet. It's available in three different colors, from chestnut brown, ebony black, and dark teal, so you can pick the shade that fits your personal style The Nodus Lofold's compelling mix of EDC-friendly features and smart looks set it apart as superior compared to other bifold wallets.

EverRatchet: Ratcheting Keychain Multi-tool

The biggest problem with keychain multi-tools is finding one with the right balance between form and function. Small tools are easier to carry, but harder to use. Larger tools are quite the opposite. The EverRatchet from Gear Infusion hits just the right balance of size and functionality while adding something never before seen on a keychain multi-tool. The EverRatchet’s integrated bit driver has a unique ratcheting mechanism that makes quick fixes even faster.

The EverRatchet’s key feature works thanks to what Gear Infusion calls their “dynamic ratcheting beam.” Through some careful design and engineering, they’ve managed to create a system that holds the bit still under force but lets the tool rotate back to its starting position to get additional torque in use. In practice, it's not at all as complicated as it sounds. To tighten a screw, put the bit driver in the ratchet hole, and turn it back and forth like you would a normal ratchet. Loosening a screw is just a matter of flipping the tool over and rotating it in the other direction. In addition to the ratchet, you’ll find a fire flint, scraper, pry bar, measuring tool, and 7 wrenches of different sizes. The tool measures in at just under 2.5” in length — ideal for keychain or coin pocket carry.

Currently, the EverRatchet is tens of thousands of dollars over its funding goal. Pledges start at a reasonable $16 for a stainless steel tool and $21 for the titanium version, both of which include a #2 Philips Bit and Fire Flint to sweeten the deal. Hit the link below to see the tool in action and snag one for yourself.

Uberleben Leicht Firestarter

Few people will deny that a fire starter is a handy tool to have, but they’re not always made for EDC. Long rods and awkward carrying cases make them easier to stash in a bag than in your pockets. But every now and then something comes along that won’t take up any pocket space at all. This time, that comes in the form of the Uberleben Leicht fire starter neck lanyard. It weighs next to nothing, but in an emergency situation it could be the most important tool in your carry.

If you’ve ever gone hiking you know that packing light is essential. The Leicht fire starter weighs only one ounce, leaving you with more weight to work with for the rest of your loadout. Plus, the lanyard itself is made from paracord, which has plenty of emergency and survival applications as well. It's threaded through a ferrocerium rod and ring scraper designed to work together to get sparks flying to start your fires. Whether you’re at high altitudes trekking through mountains or stuck in a rainstorm, you can count on the Leicht to light. With a lifespan of around 12,000 strikes, this isn’t a “one and done” kind of tool.

Even if your day to day is a little less adventurous, it’s always good to be prepared. Whether you're looking to add a firestarter to your EDC or want an ultralight backup, the Uberleben Leicht is a convenient option. Get one for your kit at the link below.

Deal Alert: Dango Father's Day Wallet and Belt Bundles

Father's Day is around the corner on the 17th, but there's still time to get dad some great gear. And while he may be set with his EDC, there's still a few essentials you can get him that will add to both his security and utility. For this Father's Day Dango put together some gear bundles that you and your dad can share to upgrade your essentials, or give him a choice of backup in case of EDC emergency. Whichever the case, it's the perfect time to grab some great deals on Dango's latest and most popular products.

Dango's first featured bundle is a pair of D01 Dapper wallets and paracord tethers. The wallet is fully structured with a low-profile design and less tactical flair, making it TSA-friendly for urban carry. Dango combined their usual premium leather with durable aerospace aluminum resulting in a comfortable wallet that doesn't take up too much pocket space. It accommodates up to 12 cards total and keeps them safe from skimming thanks to RFID protection. The tethers are made from 10 feet of 550 paracord woven into a 6” cobra weave and tipped with an HK clip on one end to ensure your wallet is securely fastened to your pocket or bag.

The second bundle also includes a pair of tethers, but this time matched to Dango's T01 Tactical wallets. The T01's tough aluminum frame wrapped in premium leather makes for a tool that will keep your bases (and your money) covered in any occasion. It can hold up to 12 cards and has a tough elastic band for a few folded bills as well. But if you want to take advantage of all that this wallet has to offer, the included MT02 multi-tool adds 14 extra tools to your carry. Even with the MT02 inside, the wallet still only weighs 3.4 ounces and maintains a slim 0.38 inch profile.

Finally, Dango's third featured bundle includes their new Dango Belt in both Jet Black and Whiskey Brown colorways, perfect for matching dad's every outfit. The Dango Belt comes in two parts: a strap handmade in the USA from Italian vegetable-tanned leather, and a 7-piece buckle machined from high-strength but lightweight 7075 aluminum. The buckle also holds a capsule that integrates into its frame. With a 0.3" inner diameter and 1.9" internal height, it's a discreet part of the belt's design while giving you a space to hold small essentials such as pills, matches, or a secret stash for cash.

Whether you're stepping up your wallet and belt game for yourself and your dad or giving him some fresh new essentials for his EDC, Dango's got Father's Day covered with their discounted bundles. But that's not all—head on over to their site to check out their other deals so you can save even more on the perfect gift.

Dango Belt

For many people, a belt is a belt: a piece of leather that holds your pants up. But for EDCers, a good belt is the difference between a guy keeping his outfit together and Batman. And like the rest of the tools they carry every day, a functional, reliable belt can perform well on its own while coming in handy at a moment's notice. Just like the Caped Crusader's famous accessory, Dango's debut into belts seeks to give you both form and function to make the most of your everyday clothing.

Before anything else, a belt has to its job well, which means it has to be built well enough to never let you—or your pants—down. The Dango Belt comes in two parts: a strap handmade in the USA from Italian vegetable-tanned leather, and a 7-piece buckle machined from high-strength but lightweight 7075 aluminum. 

The buckle itself is removable, meaning you can swap out straps to different colors (your choice of Jet Black or Whiskey Brown) to fit your daily ensemble. The buckle also holds a capsule that integrates into its frame. With a 0.3" inner diameter and 1.9" internal height, it's a discreet part of the belt's design while giving you a space to hold small essentials such as pills, matches, or a secret stash for cash.

The Dango Belt is an uncompromising accessory that looks good and performs even better for EDC. You can pick one up in your choice of size and strap color direct from Dango at the link below.

Giveaway: Win 5.11 Lightweight Summer Essentials!

Update: Congrats to Joseph M., winner of this week's giveaway! Thanks to everyone who participated. Stay tuned for more giveaways here on Everyday Carry for more chances to win.

Who else loves free EDC gear? This week, we're hooking up one lucky reader with a sleek set of summer essentials brought to you by our sponsor, 5.11 Tactical. They're a brand that needs no introduction to EDCers with their decades-long commitment to useful and reliable gear, and it's your chance to win some lightweight picks for when the temperatures rise.

Dango T02 Titanium Tactical Wallet

While most gear is made from strong stainless steel or lightweight aluminum, one prized material combines the best of both worlds: titanium. But the toughness that makes titanium perfect for EDC is also what makes it so hard to work with to make a finished product. That's why titanium is usually reserved for only the best everyday carry gear. By swapping a titanium chassis into the mix, the new Dango T02 titanium tactical wallet takes its durability and light weight to the next level while keeping everything that made the original great. And this time around, it offers even more capacity in an all-new bifold design so you won't have to compromise capacity for a slim profile.

Like the rest of Dango's popular EDC-friendly wallet designs, the T02 mixes minimalist aesthetics with practical qualities like EDC multi-functionality, a high capacity, and slim design. Two things set this particular model apart. The first is the beautiful one-piece solid titanium chassis that's more durable and corrosion-resistant compared to previous models while still being incredibly lightweight. The high-quality chassis is precision CNC-machined in the United States, and built tough enough to handle all the bumps and scrapes of daily use. And because it's made out of corrosion-resistant titanium, it can stand up to the elements even outdoors in poor weather.

And like other wallets in the Dango lineup, the T02 is compatible with the included 14-function stainless steel MT02 multi-tool. The MT02 insert covers essential EDC functions like opening boxes and bottles, helping you further reduce the bulk in your EDC.

The addition of titanium to the Dango wallet line-up is a welcome, logical progression towards everyday durability and light weight. If you're in the market for a new EDC wallet that strikes a balance of premium feel with practical features, make sure to give the T02 Tactical Wallet a look at the link below.
