Leatherman FREE P4 Multipurpose Plier

Leatherman FREE P4 Multipurpose Plier

With a Leatherman, one tiny multi-tool does it all. This stainless steel must-have packs 21 essential tools, including regular and needle nose pliers, wire cutters, knives, an awl, a pry tool, a ruler, screwdrivers, can and bottle openers, and more into a package that’s just 4.25” closed.

Tactile Turn Standard Bolt Action Pen

Tactile Turn Standard Bolt Action Pen

Clickable ball-point pens are standard promotional fare. If you want something a bit nicer to sign checks and take down digits at the pub, this sleek beauty in titanium, zirconium, bronze, or copper is perfect, especially with the rifle-inspired bolt action and a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty.

Flint and Tinder Flannel-lined Waxed Trucker Jacket

Flint and Tinder Flannel-lined Waxed Trucker Jacket

This trucker jacket in myriad natural hues (coal, olive, moss, etc.) is the bomb, thanks to an inner lining (body and sleeves) in soft flannel and an outer in waxed, weather-resistant Martexin, 7-ounce sailcloth from New Jersey (waxed on both sides for warmth and insulation).

The James Brand Hell Gap Knife

The James Brand Hell Gap Knife

Superior EDC essentials are the name of the game for The James Brand, founded by designers and adventurers. This 3.8” stainless steel blade with comfortable Micarta handle features a modified drop point design that’s perfect for everything from peeling apples to skinning rabbits.

Dango T02 Titanium Tactical Wallet

Dango T02 Titanium Tactical Wallet

For tactical EDC, it doesn’t get much better than a wallet that has a bottle opener, hexes, serrated and sharpened edges, and more. It also holds up to 12 cards in its titanium frame and top-grain leather body and blocks RFID signals.

Huckberry USA-Made Gear Catch

Huckberry USA-Made Gear Catch

This heavy-duty, powder-coated steel caddy is stamped from a single sheet of steel and CNC-machined for strength and precision. It’s the perfect size to corral everything that comes out of your pockets at the end of the day.

Jacob Bromwell Weekender Flask

Jacob Bromwell Weekender Flask

This funny flask looks a bit like a wedge of cheese or slice of cake, lovingly rendered in pure, solid copper. The angular design might seem strange until you hold it in your hand and realize how comfortably it fits. This product is 100 percent handcrafted and offers a seven-ounce liquid carry capacity.

Pelican 45QW Elite Wheeled Cooler

Pelican 45QW Elite Wheeled Cooler

Much like the expansive beak a pelican is known for, the Pelican cooler offers more than meets the eye. The 45-quart capacity can retain ice-cold temps for up to 10 days. Enjoy heavy-duty wheels, a built-in trolley handle, a sloped drain, an integrated fish scale, and a bottle opener, all of which add to its utilitarian appeal. 

Gerber Fastball Knife

Gerber Fastball Knife

Despite the fact that this pocketknife is just 7.1 inches long when open, you’re sure to appreciate the aggressive stance of the Wharncliffe blade, perfect for carving and making precision cuts. With a black oxide-coated steel blade, aircraft-grade aluminum scales, and smooth, fast deployment with B.O.S.S. ball bearing technology, it’s sure to be an EDC fave. 

Smithey Ironware Co. Carbon Steel Farmhouse Skillet

Smithey Ironware Co. Carbon Steel Farmhouse Skillet

Whether you use your skillet for scrambling eggs or scrambling the wits of intruders via a well-placed hit to the head (or both), this hand-forged, carbon steel beauty will serve your needs with style. A satin-smooth polish in the pan and an ergonomic handle make for the perfect balance of function and form. 

Flint and Tinder 10-Year Hoodie

Flint and Tinder 10-Year Hoodie

How long does a hoodie really last? If you wear your faves frequently, probably not more than one or two years. Not so with this Flint and Tinder outerwear, which comes with a decade-long guarantee. All-American materials include Mississippi Delta cotton, South Carolina fleece, heavy-duty zippers from Georgia, and twill-reinforced seams from Philly (cut and sewn in L.A.). 

Dango MC01 Titanium Money Clip

Dango MC01 Titanium Money Clip

Skip the slick money clips of old in favor of a tough, modern alternative in satin silver-finish titanium. The minimalist construction is low profile in your pocket but offers the flexibility to carry up to 50 bills securely. The silicone band delivers space for another 30 bills or 10 cards. Don’t forget the handy addition of a bottle opener, too. 

Mission Workshop R2 Arkiv Field Pack

Mission Workshop R2 Arkiv Field Pack

This rugged, weatherproof, 20-liter field pack offers up a deceptively simple appearance in waxed canvas, with a roll-top closure, a zip pocket, and a flap pocket. Inside, you’ll find a laptop slip for machines up to 15 inches and a zippered pocket. But where the pack really shines is with the patented Arkiv® modular system that allows you to adapt it to your needs with preferred accessories. 

Estwing Hunter's Axe

Estwing Hunter’s Axe

This sleek axe in solid American steel looks like the Big Bad Wolf’s worst nightmare, thanks to a hand-polished blade, a powder coat finish on the steel, and a matching black Shock Reduction Grip®. The three-inch edge and 2.75-inch gut hook for dressing large game are perfect for the avid outdoorsman. 

Grovemade Wood Laptop Riser

Grovemade Wood Laptop Riser

Laptops don’t feature the same height adjustment options as computer monitors, which can leave you feeling like Quasimodo as you hunch over your keyboard. Resolve the issue and correct your posture with an ergonomically designed laptop riser in walnut or maple that offers smart extras like cable management. 

Good + Well Supply Co. Everglades National Park Candle

Good + Well Supply Co. Everglades National Park Candle

Florida’s Everglades may be best known for the booming ball python population (seriously, the estimates are now over 100,000), but Good + Well would rather focus on the unique scentscape of this nationally recognized forested wetland. Their take includes blood orange, bergamot, and neroli, so if you like citrus, it’s right up your alley.
