Depending on the type of person you are, everyday carry can be a smart and measured group of items that you carry on your person all the time or a total obsession that eats up all of your time. Some people suffer from both definitions. It’s very exciting to add and subtract, to whittle away at the unnecessary until you wind up with the perfect mix of quality and necessity.
Thanks to crowdfunding there are companies popping up all the time offering great products to help refine your everyday carry setup. In this article, I have compiled a list of 5 products that you may not have heard of in 2017.
“The Tactical Wallet was designed for the outdoor enthusiast that loves to keep things clean and needs to have tools easily accessible. There are over 14 functions built in. The Dango MT02 Multi-Tool slides into the cavity where the cards sit. When engaged, the multi-tool can nest securely into the safety locks built into the wallet chassis- allowing for easy sawing, cutting and protection. Common tools are built in: hexes, para cord cutter, nail pryer, knife, saw and even a phone stand. We thought of everything and think that you will be pleased with all of the functions built into such a small package.”
I carry this wallet personally and whether you decide to go with the multitool insert or not I can tell you this is a functional wallet that will force you to be more organized. With the multitool you have a ton of features and the fact that they are all stout and part of one piece of metal makes the tool very effective. When it comes to the dapper factor, this is a very handsome wallet.
“Combat One is one of the most effective hygiene tools at your disposal for maintaining your health and welfare – no matter what conditions you find yourself in. Combat One is committed to our nation’s fighting Warriors as much as they are committed to the people they serve. They know they can depend on our entire line of products and trust us for developing highly-effective, quality skin and muscle maintenance systems. In fact, Combat One has received more than a 97% approval rating by U.S. Military Warriors when asked if they would use Combat One again.”
Combat One is a marvel for the EDC enthusiast. The field spray and foam come in these wonderful little bottles that will slip right into your Maxpedtion or just into your pocket. This spray will cleanse with a powerful and natural antibacterial that needs zero ounces of your precious water to work.
Urban Mini Organizer
“As featured on Everyday Carry and Gear Moose, the Urban Organizer Mini is perfectly sized for your pocket carry. The compactness allows you to slip it easily into your front pocket without any added bulk. It comes with two front slots for your most essential tools, as well as a card slot in the back for your most frequently used credit card, a convenient place for your folded bills, and a middle slot for everything else.”
Not only is this great little organizer worth talking about but the entirety of urban EDC supply’s inventory is worth a look for the average EDC enthusiast. The Urban Mini pocket organizer will challenge you in the same way as the Dango Dapper. This product is simply high-quality leather and I like the fact that in a survival situation you could use the wallet itself as a survival material.
“The Urban Kit is our solution for the tools needed during Escape and Evasion or a Home Invasion Scenario to escape from illegal restraint. Escaping illegal restraint from Zip Ties and Handcuffs is heavily advocated here at ITS Tactical and as long as Zip Ties are available and Handcuffs can be purchased by anyone off-the-shelf from Army-Navy stores or a host of resources online, the average citizen needs to have access to these tools to escape potential illegal restraint.”
The urban kit is not cheap. That is not a knock on the product but more of a statement to let you know it’s made here in America and its made from quality products. This kit is designed for escape and evasion which gives it an edge over most basic survival kits. This is a beautiful little EDC item you should add to your system today.
“The UZI-TACPEN3-BK Defender Tactical Pen is made of heavy duty lightweight aircraft aluminum and features a DNA catcher and built in cuff key. Screw out the rear end DNA Catcher to reveal the secret hand cuff key, compatible with most professional handcuffs. Tried and tested.”
I used to be an avid dispeller of the tactical pen. The funny thing about that is I AM A WRITER. The idea of having a quality pen never really appealed to me. I know. It’s very silly. I have since made the jump from the world of tac pens and one of the best brands is UZI. If you aren’t carrying a good pen it’s time to grow up. These are also great when you are going into an amusement park or somewhere a knife cannot go.
EDC is very important part of your arsenal. The important thing to remember is EDC is a rapidly evolving industry that is highly influenced by technology. It is important not to remain complacent about your EDC or you could be missing out on some serious upgrades and efficiencies.
