It's a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.

If you're the kind of person who needs Nitro Cold Brew and lots of it, we've got just the thing for your everyday carry. While the Tactile Turn Nitro Seasonal Release won't automatically make and dispense coffee for you, it does celebrate our shared love for coffee, the drink that makes the world go round. 

It starts with their Side Click Titanium body, with a rich dark brown Cerakote finish and cream-colored hardware that evokes a dark brew and the light splash of milk you get in a good latte. And as masterfully crafted as latte artwork, a lightning bolt mug design is precision engraved on the pocket clip. The Nitro Seasonal Release is also available in Tactile's Slim Click profile if you prefer a slimmer pen. Both versions come in Standard, Short, and Mini lengths to meet your needs. Remember that the Parker-style refills work on Standard and Short, but the Mini uses the exclusive but smooth-writing Pilot G2 mini refills.

Like all Tactile Seasonal Releases, you have a limited time to order the pen, but you're good to go as long as you order before December 31st. Pull two big shots and send it in by tonight because the Tactile Nitro Side Click Seasonal Pen is your perfect companion for your next trip to the coffeehouse.

What we like: Aside from the playful coffee lover's aspect of this pen, the golden brown Cerakote body of the Nitro is excellently crafted with undertones that make it more than just a paint job. 

What to watch out for: Tactile has also released an optional ceramic Diner Mug and a coffee bag of premium beans from Voltage Coffee Project in Decatur, Texas. It's currently sold out, but there will be a second batch coming soon that you can look out for.

Final verdict: You don't have to like coffee to like this pen, but it doesn't hurt. Tactile Seasonal Releases continue to deliver, and this pen is an excellent opportunity during the holiday gift season to spruce up someone's everyday carry, especially if it's for yourself.
