Trending: Herschel Supply Trail Tour Hip Pack

We're spotlighting a trending sling this Saturday from the adventure-seeking bag brand, Herschel Supply Co. The Trail Tour Small hip pack provides that extra bit of carry capacity when you're out on the trail or out on the town. 

The front and upper portions of the pack are made of a water-resistant, 210d dobby nylon, while a heavier duty Ballistic nylon reinforces the base against abrasion and also provides structure to the bag. Smaller essentials can ride up front in a separate zip pocket, while the bulk of your carry can be stowed away in the more spacious main compartment. Accessing the main compartment via its two-way zipper reveals a mesh pocket and a key leash as well. 

Measuring at 5.0 x 7.0 x 2.5 inches, it's compact enough to be worn on the hip or slung over the shoulder with its adjustable nylon webbing straps and large standard release buckle. If you've been looking for an outdoors-ready hip pack for your EDC, check out this affordable option at the link below.

Trending: Boker Plus PSK

It's Fixed Blade Friday, and today we're highlighting this little big knife from Boker Plus that's been trending with this past week's data. Designed by Tom Krein as his "Personal Survival Knife," the PSK sports a no-frills design to deliver serious outdoor, survival, and EDC performance. It's sized just right for everyday carry as far as fixed blades go, measuring in with a 3" blade length and a robust 4.7mm thickness. A clip point shape makes the most of its 2.5" cutting edge, while its flat grind offers plenty of versatility. Jimping on the spine and a finger choil help with a secure grip for harder tasks. G10 on the handles keep the PSK light, comfortable to hold, and grippy when wet. A lanyard hole at the end of the handle gives an extra carry option in addition to the included horizontal Kydex sheath and Tek-lok mount. Check it out in full detail at the link below.

Trending: Citizen Eco-Drive PRT

This Thursday's Trending Timepiece brings everyday wearability, utilitarian features, and Citizen's Eco-Drive technology to a bold, 42mm case, making it an excellent daily driver for EDCers with larger wrists. Its Japanese quartz movement runs thanks to Citizen's signature Eco-Drive tech, which uses light (from the sun or artificial sources alike) to charge without a battery. Top that off with a 8-month reserve and charge indicator display right on the dial, and you have a reliable everyday watch. Visually, the PRT is rich with detail too—orange accents, a magnified date display, subtle stripes on the dial complemented by a striped NATO strap, and a thin dive bezel—without looking overwhelming. A stainless steel case, mineral glass, lume on the hands and markers, as well as 100m of water resistance round out its feature set. Pick up a PRT for the summer at the link below.

Trending: Bellroy Micro Sleeve

For this week's trending Wallet Wednesday, here's a minimalist cardholder that finds the right balance of size, ease of use, and comfort. When it first released in 2014, so many minimalist wallets would take that angle to the extreme -- stripping things down to uncomfortable metal frames or accommodating only a few cards in a way that could feel borderline too snug because of how slim the wallet was. The Bellroy Micro Sleeve shows excellent restraint, keeping a small footprint while still having enough room to retrieve your cards from a slanted front pocket and its roomier main compartment. The main compartment can even take once-folded bills so you don't have to do your cash origami to get everything inside. Lastly, it's made from quality leather like so many of Bellroy's wallets, giving it a good blend of durability and a luxurious, comfortable feel in hand. It's a no-frills wallet that looks good with a design that just works -- especially for those of you who prefer keeping some cash on them. Grab one for your EDC at the link below.

Trending: Spyderco Urban Lightweight

Today's Sunday Slicer punches above its weight as one of the most heavily trafficked products on the site last week. The aptly named Spyderco Urban Lightweight lacks a locking mechanism and sports FRN handles, making it an excellent EDC for minimalists and those who live in cities with stricter knife regulations. A classic oversized thumbhole deploys the 2.6", N690CO blade, revealing its signature Spyderco "leaf"-shape. The leaf shape makes the most of its well-sized blade to give you enough cutting edge for most everyday tasks. Jimping on both the spine and the finger choil give excellent grip, enhanced by the textured FRN handle. While it's mostly a no-frills kind of knife, it does include a wire pocket clip for ease of carry. You can pick up this classic slipjoint Spyderco for your urban EDC at the link below.

Trending: Olight S15-Ti Baton

This Flashlight Friday's trending torch might not be the latest and greatest, but it's still a capable performer with some titanium bling appeal to match. The Olight S15-Ti Baton put out an 260 lumens off a 14500 cell--an impressive benchmark at its debut and still plenty of light for EDC tasks today—with the ability to also take more common alkaline and rechargeable NiMH AA batteries. If you're more concerned about runtime, the S15 Baton could also run off 2xAA batteries with an optional AA battery extender. While the S15 Baton's CREE XM-L2 LED pushed plenty of lumens at its highest setting, it's also capable of an equally (if not more) useful 0.3 lumen Firefly mode. Perhaps the biggest draw of the S15-Ti, especially in 2019, is its limited edition titanium construction. And despite its age, the S15-Ti Baton still packs mainstay features on today's modern lights, like a flat magnetic tailcap, removable pocket clip, and electronic side switch. If you're a Ti fanatic or a flashaholic in general, you can grab this limited edition titanium torch for your collection before it's long gone at the link below.

Trending: Tissot Navigator

For this week's Timepiece Thursday it's time we took a look at a Swiss watch climbing our trending charts. The Tissot Navigator is one of the Swiss house's main lines, featuring a sporty style and features built on military-inspired design. Within the stainless steel 44mm case beats an automatic Swiss ETA 2836-2 movement, with a 42-hour power reserve and day and date complications. The larger canvas allows Tissot to show off the Navigator's bold orange dial, with hi-visibility lume on the minute ring, large numerals, as well as accents on the hands. Its movement is resistant up to 100 meters, and can partially be seen on the skeletonized caseback. A rubber strap completes the sporty package, making the Navigator ideal for every activity. Check it out at the link below.

Trending: Trayvax Ascent Wallet

This week's Wallet Wednesday mention goes to the Trayvax Ascent, a built-to-last minimalist wallet that's made in the USA from a mix of quality materials. Its stainless steel plate frame gives structure and strength to the wallet, while jimping along the edges ensure a firm grip. Top-grain, oil-tanned leather that's bolted to the frame and stitched by hand make up the rest of the wallet. There's a cut-out window on the front of the wallet for at-a-glance identification of your cards that doubles as a thumb slot to push and slide everything out with ease. The combination of steel and quality leather offer the best of both materials' worlds: durability plus a comfortable, luxe handfeel that gets better as it's broken in. You can fit a card or two in its quick-access slot, while its main compartment can stash three to four cards or folded cash. A nylon pull tab makes accessing cards in the main compartment that much easier. Finally, an attachment point in the steel frame allows for tether or lanyard options for a more secure carry. And like the rest of Trayvax's lineup of carry goods, the Ascent is backed by a 65-year heirloom warranty. Check it out in all its color combinations at the link below.

Trending: Casio G-STEEL GSTS100G-1A

It's Watch Wednesday and this past week's worth of Trending Gear data has this robust digital/analogue hybrid timepiece on your radar. Casio watches have been a go-to choice for EDCers, with the G-SHOCK line being one of the most popular. Even the common fully digital G-SHOCK watches feature incredible durability, often at affordable pricepoints, that make them work for any EDC setup. This currently trending model, the GSTS100G, takes the core ruggedness of the G-SHOCK line to the next level as part of the G-STEEL family.

The GSTS100G combines stainless steel and resin materials and digital/analog hybrid timekeeping elements, resulting in a sophisticated mix of performance, durability, and style. It's packed with many of the features you'd expect in a G-SHOCK, like 200M water resistance, World Time for 31 time zones, multiple alarms, a stopwatch, and more. To keep all that information legible even in low-light conditions, the dial has a sense of depth as well as LED frontlighting for the entire face and LED backlighting for its digital display implements. Last but not least, it's solar powered and impact resistant to the demanding G-SHOCK shock resistance standards. Check it out at the link below.

Trending: Recycled Firefighter Leather Sergeant Wallet

For Wallet Wednesday, this update to a crowd favorite slim wallet is climbing the ranks of our Trending Gear data.
