This plastic-free oral care set is an all-in-one sustainable alternative for daily use or travel kits!

Small parts of our routine tend to have a big environmental impact, for instance, floss is good for our teeth but it is terrible for the ocean and turns it into a plastic minefield. Toothbrush bristles as well as floss are made up of nylon which is not biodegradable but another thing that makes it dangerous is that it is designed to not tear causing serious harm to ocean life. When looking at these issues it is clear that we need to move away from single-use plastics and find a more eco-friendly, long-term solution like the Seventh Generation Beam – a customizable, subscription-based, plastic-free set that is designed to be the all-in-one sustainable oral care kit.

Did you know one billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away every year in the United States, creating 50 million pounds of waste annually? The production of the nylon bristles on each toothbrush causes nitrous oxide to be produced and released into the atmosphere as a bi-product; nitrous oxide is a greenhouse gas that is 310 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

Seventh Generation’s goal is to limit harmful chemicals and they use plant-based ingredients, scents made from real ingredients, and no synthetic fragrances/dyes in their products. It encourages the importance of wellness is in our personal care, household products, and generally in our everyday lifestyle. The concept demands we expand our understanding of what nourishes us without harming the planet through beautiful and innovative design.

The aim is to create 100% plastic-free packaging. The challenge is to rebrand a traditional product line and redesign the packaging system to be fully sustainable while utilizing no plastic or bioplastic. Biomaterials like tin, wood pulp, plant cellulose, food waste, grass, algae, and mushrooms are being considered. It will all be sustainably sourced, preferably materials that are at the end of their lives and can be composed into biomass to regenerate depleted farming soils.

The design and aesthetics are playful, warm, organic and unlike the language, one might typically associate with “eco-friendly products” which usually only sparks the idea of “bamboo”. Seventh Generation shows that innovation and changing the things we choose can be achieved with visuals just as much as the value added by the product itself.

The kit consists of toothpaste tablets, refillable floss, and a toothbrush. While this is a concept, the aim is to make these products plastic-free as well. Toothpaste tablets already exist and help reduce product and chemical waste while eco-friendly floss and toothbrushes are also gaining popularity as people become more aware of the consequences their actions have on the environment.

Essential Car Accessories designed to help you escape dangerous situations and emergencies safely + securely!

Our personal cars are honestly very important! We need them to commute from one place to another, and in traveling to and fro different locations, I’m pretty sure we end up spending a substantial amount of our day in them. Hence, maintaining the health and safety of our car is quite crucial. But no matter how much care we take of our beloved cars, there’s always a risk of our car breaking down or encountering some issue or the other. In such scenarios, it’s critical to have a handy collection of tools that can come to our rescue. From EDCs to nifty accessories, these products will support your car in the best way possible. From a tiny EDC tool that helps you escape during in-car emergencies to an emergency light that can save your life-these nifty, portable, and highly functional designs will help you escape the trickiest emergency warning situations safely!

The WYN Bullet  is one of those rare examples of EDC that was designed to save lives. Smaller than your finger, the WYN Bullet is a spring-loaded glass-shattering tool that helps you make a quick escape/rescue by instantly breaking a car’s toughened glass. Whether you’re inside your car trying to get out, or outside the car trying to save someone on the inside, the WYN Bullet’s one-push system can instantly shatter toughened glass panels, giving you swift entry into a locked car in emergencies . Toughened glass is exceptionally difficult to break through, by design.

The NUMBER ZERO’s design comes with a clever bit of consideration that’s often overlooked by other companies. The mount’s design was created to look good even there’s NO phone mounted on it. Rather than just use that opportunity to slap a massive piece of branding onto the mount’s design, the NUMBER ZERO comes with a neat little kinetic animation that’s powered by the wind from the AC. The mount comes with a variety of animations to choose from, all of which feature a rotating element that’s powered by the wind coming off the AC vent at the back. The air from the vent pushes a series of gears that then cause the kinetic animation to gently rotate, allowing the NUMBER ZERO to look eye-catching even when the phone isn’t mounted in place.

Issued as a limited release, Spotify’s Car Thing provides a bridge between your car’s speaker system and your favorite online streaming service. Available for free to a select group of applicants (you can sign up on Spotify’s Car Thing microsite), the Car Thing is a nifty little dashboard that brings Spotify to life in your automobile. It runs a version of the streaming company’s Car View, a simple interface that’s easy to use and navigate while driving, and while the device DOES have a touchscreen, it comes with physical dials and buttons that you can instinctively operate with your hand as you keep your eyes on the road. The Spotify Car Thing is built to be compatible with vehicles regardless of make or model and displays a home screen with a touch-sensitive navigation dial slightly overlapping the screen to make the device look visually dramatic.

Designed to be universal and customizable, the Zero Labs Platform is an electric base that can fit under the body of virtually any existing car, turning it instantly electric. Think of Zero Labs’ Platform as basically an electric skateboard. It comes with a base fitted with all the electrical components, a battery, and four wheels. Designed with an adjustable wheelbase and ride height, independent front and rear suspension, modular battery system, a 600HP dual-motor drive, regenerative breaking, the Platform can be customized to fit under any car. The car would need to be prepared for this transition, by ditching everything under the hood and hooking the steering controls and dashboard to the new electric drivetrain. The car would then be mounted onto its new platform and lo and behold, you’ve got yourself an old dog with new tricks… or as Zero Labs like to call it, “the Past, powered by the Future”.

The Jabra Drive in-car speaker blocks out all the other sounds on the road! It comes amped with noise-cancellation technology that eliminates disturbing noises from the road. Installing the speaker in your car is super simple and easy. There are voice-guided instructions to help you connect the device to your car! Moreover, you even get verbal reminders when the battery is low. You can use the Jabra Drive to make calls, stream music, and play GPS instructions as well.

Kono Corporation’s solution to the problem is a simple coupling of two words. Increased visibility. The S.Light, which should be as much of a standard carry-on accessory as a car-jack or lug-wrench, is a signaling beacon that allows drivers to know that there’s a broken-down vehicle ahead, from as far as 200 yards away, giving them enough time to react by either change lanes and avoiding a collision, or pulling up near you to help you out. The S.Light, which stands for Safe-Secure-Signal is a portable, flexible signboard that uses a rotating LED display for high visibility at night, and a collapsible reflector panel during the day. The emergency signboard comes with a strong, magnetic base and a flexible goose-neck upon which lies the rotating LED module.

A tiny, versatile multitool, the Gerber Armbar Drive packs 7 tools into its small, slick frame. The Armbar Drive’s frame integrates a prybar and bottle opener into its design, while the fold-out tools include a full-size plain-edge knife, an awl for making or enlarging holes, a scissor for cutting, and a 2.5” long screwdriver with a 2-sided bit that you can flip and use based on your need. Pretty useful for a multitool that ultimately folds down to the size of your index finger. The Armbar Drive even has a sister variant, the Armbar Cork, which features a corkscrew with a lever arm along with a can/package opener… but given that I haven’t seen a bottle of alcohol in over a month now, I’ll leave that be.

The primary responsibility of a walkie-talkie is to be a portable communication device. “Designed to be carried at any time, in many different ways,” this walkie-talkie can be used in any industry or organization where instantaneous communication between peers is required, and phone signals are unreliable. These would generally include security services, transportation industry, construction sites, manufacturing, and warehouse facilities amid a few other sectors. The fact is that walkie-talkies are easy to use and have grown beyond commercial use into the lives of the masses. Smaller versions are especially very popular among kids. As a more innovative way – to highlight its transport – Franco Calegari has designed a walkie-talkie with the bottom half of the device cut out into a hollow ring, which can be used to attach a carabiner or in a range of other ways.

With a newly detailed base that features a wide cross-shaped design, increasing its stability, the CrossJack is the same old jack in a slightly new but noticeably safer design, thanks to its stable base. The CrossJack’s design prompts one to wonder why car-jacks don’t already have wide bases. Its redesign is simple but effective. A collapsible set of plates sit at the bottom of the CrossJack that opens up into a wide cross, giving the jack a spaced-apart, four-point base. This wider footprint prevents the car from being accidentally knocked off the jack and landing on the ground, injuring anyone who may be working on it. The CrossJack’s tweaked design sports a base that’s nearly half an inch thick, and made of stainless steel, giving it a rugged sturdiness that makes the jack safer than most. When you’re done, the jack folds up to occupy exactly the same amount of space as any regular jack would.

3.5 times harder than titanium, the strongest metal known to mankind, Tungsten Carbide is akin to black gold in the EDC world. Give any gear a coating of Tungsten Carbide and it shines black like obsidian rock, with a unique metallic luster that’s glimmery in a subtle way… but more importantly, it makes them practically invincible, resisting any sort of external wear and tear. Pair it with Wingback’s series of exquisitely designed EDC and you’ve got the ideal combination of aesthetics and performance. Designed by Alasdair MacLaine, Wingback’s Black Steel collection sports three minimal-yet-functional products that are bound to be an unwavering part of your everyday carry. A bullet-sized Key Cache helps you store emergency money on your keychain, while a mechanical pen with its comfortable broad design promises to be the last pen you’ll ever want to use. Lastly, MacLaine’s 100ml hip-flask comes with the same cylindrical lathe-manufactured design as the other products in the series.

Made from silver and metal alloy, this ergonomic pen surpasses the regular wooden pencil with its ink-less design!

Inspired by ancient writing instruments, ZAI is an inkless pen with a silver point composed of a metal alloy and silver designed by a team at BAH International that hopes to cut the cost burden and environmental impact of conventional wooden pencil production.

Few things are more exciting than unique stationery designs–even fewer are more exciting than an inkless pen. In use since ancient times, silverpoint pens, whose cores are constructed from silver and alloy, have been trusted by scribes, illustrators, and architects alike. Merging its traditional use with a modern, ergonomic build, ZAI is an inkless pen designed by a team at BAH International Co. that aims to reduce the conventional pencil’s cost burden and environmental impact.

The designers at BAH International created the ZAI Pencil to last a lifetime. Even following consistent wear and tear, the silverpoint of ZAI remains sharp with each use. Since a lot of wood is needed to construct conventional wooden pencils, the designers at BAH International hope to reduce the environmental impact of pencil production with ZAI.

Carrying a silverpoint composed of a silver and alloy mixture, users can choose between a colorful aluminum barrel or a rustic wooden one, the only difference being that ZAI’s aluminum barrel is slightly shorter. Compared to conventional wooden pencils and ink pens, ZAI writes and feels just the same for a familiar tactile experience.

Additionally, ZAI only draws and writes on paper surfaces, so it will not bleed through clothes or leak onto your palms while writing. Waterproof by design, ZAI is built for extreme conditions where writing and drawing with traditional instruments might not work.

Reaching a maximum height between 100 and 112mm, ZAI is portable for even the smallest of pockets and features a round barrel for an ergonomic grip. Users can also easily adjust the contrast of ZAI’s imprint by pressing down harder or softer on the piece of paper to reach a writing pressure similar to that of a 2B pencil.

Designer: BAH International Co.

Depending on the pressure applied, like any pen, the contrast of ZAI’s ‘ink’ flow will vary.

Made from silver and alloy metal, ZAI is waterproof by design. 

Users have the choice between a wooden barrel and an aluminum one, the only difference being that the aluminum barrel is slightly shorter.

ZAI pens only write on paper, so they will never bleed through your clothes.

Designed to last a lifetime, ZAI was created to replace wooden pencils.

Silverpoint pens have been trusted by illustrators, painters, architects, and scribes for centuries.

When put on paper, the ‘ink’ of ZAI is waterproof so, rest assured, spills can happen.

These claw-inspired EDC folding knives use an Emerson Wave deployment method for safe and precise movements!

There are some pretty hardcore EDC multipurpose tools on the market. From plier-based to knife-based tools, they’re trusted across industry lines for their ergonomic build and long-lasting reputation. With so many multi-use tools out there, the nitty-gritty, technical details are what set some tools above others. Edging out fixed knives for folding ones, the world’s leading e-commerce site for karambit tactical knives, Karambit.com, features a whole collection of portable multiuse tools with curved blades that fold down so you can bring them anywhere.

Originally built for farming, multiuse tools are currently used for utility, self-defense, and combat purposes. Knives that use folding and Emerson Wave deployment methods are easy to carry around safely and provide a lot more accuracy during use. As described on their site, Karambit co-owners Phillip Koontz and William Simkins say, “Emerson Wave Karambits feature a patented wave-shaped opening mechanism that allows a karambit to open instantly as it’s removed from the pocket.”

On Karambit.com, the standout Emerson Wave knives come shining with a curved blade for clean slashing through dense material. Finished in Black Idroglider and made from stainless steel, the Emerson Wave karambit blade is constructed for the long haul. While Emerson Wave knife deployment offers convenience and efficiency, it also promotes user safety, ensuring that while the karambit is inside the pocket, the knife will not dislodge.

Built using some of the strongest stainless steel available, many of the Emerson Wave deployment tools are constructed in Italy from NC690Co Stainless Steel. The Emerson Wave karambit collection also features knives that come fitted with safety finger rings and ergonomic handles for intuitive operation. Available for reverse and forward grip, the black G10 scales on each tool’s grip make handling each knife a lot safer and enhances the knife’s overall precision rating.

Designer: Karambit.com

Traditional charm meets a modern steel edge with Karambit’s Emerson Wave multi-use tools.

An added safety ring enhances the knife’s safety features and makes it easy to clip on and carry.

Laden in black G10 scales, the grip is ergonomic to promote convenience and precision.

EDC designed to become the must-have everyday essentials that you won’t be able to do without!

They say that big things come in small packages, and that certainly stands true for EDCs! EDCs may seem small in size, but they are mighty in their functionality and use! These smart little tools can come in handy anytime anywhere, helping you out of the trickiest situations, and sometimes even quite possibly saving lives! You could be carrying an EDC for days with no real use until, in a time of need, it’ll magically come to your rescue, proving its true value. These little superheroes can make a world of difference while completing tasks. And, we’ve curated the best EDC designs we’ve seen in a while! From a wearable multitool EDC shaped like a ring to an extremely rugged EDC pen that works in a temperature range of  -30°F to 250°F – these innovative product designs promise to have your back no matter what!

Meet the Tool Ring, a finger-worn EDC that can do everything from open bottles and boxes to tighten screws, and even sign documents while you’re at it. The uniquely shaped ring comes with space to dock various hex-shape bits, making it possibly the smallest toolkit in the world. The Tool Ring is exactly the kind of product you get from someone like Vanik Piliguian, an Industrial Designer born in a family of jewelers. Made from titanium the ring acts as a holder for the Tool Ring’s ecosystem of hex-bits, which include a Philips-head screwdriver, a ballpoint pen, a box-cutter, and a flashlight. Independently, the ring sits comfortably on your finger and even has a unique appearance that is also capable of being used as a mini pry tool for opening lids.

The limited-edition Searcher Orange Camp Supplies Kit from VSSL features 72 EDC camping essentials that range from a set of navigational tools to a mini first aid kit, so you’ll always be prepared to rough it in the woods. Made from waterproof, military-grade aluminum, the Searcher Orange Camp Supplies Kit stores all the tools and starter kits you need in an indestructible vessel. Consolidated into canisters the size of hockey pucks, the Searcher Orange Camp Supplies Kit comes loaded with more than ten mini survival packs that carry everything from navigational tools to fishing supplies. Portable by design, VSSL’s Supplies Kit comes with a lid that doubles as a Suunto Compass, which is also considered one of the most trusted navigational tools on the market and carries the rest of the supply kits inside.

For any situation in life, you need to be ready with the right tool at the right time. The Leatherman Curl EDC inspired by the Wave Plus does exactly that with a touch of style. This multi-tool carries the essence of the Portland, Oregon-based origins established more than 37 years ago. Made out of 100 percent stainless steel material, the pocket tool is just the right palm-sized utility that’s so wantable. What piqued my interest about this multi-tool is the unification of 15 tools into a slim package weighing just 7.5-ounce. Leatherman has truly ticked all the right checkboxes here to appeal to a wide array of audiences. And be rest assured about its performance for a long time – after all it comes with a 25-year warranty. Virtually making it last a lifetime!

According to data shared by Professional Footballers’ Association, a huge number of players are now seeking help for mental health issues ranging from performance, competition, to acceptance. Since there is no existing product that addresses the issues governing mental health directly, Breathe, is a device designed specifically to help footballers prevent anxiety. The handy gadget designed by Varun Anand is a fidget EDC/tool that uses buttons. The oval plastic body features soft foam material on the underside which mimics the shiatsu massage technique. The entire device works as a solution to help the user stay calm and relaxed pre and post-game, improving the player’s overall performance.

A 14 key organizer EDC that doubles as a Tile tracker for gadgets and accessories. It also functions as a flashlight – making it an essential tool to have in your pocket. Meet the KeySmart Max smart key organizer that brings to the EDC world a distinct USP with its sleek design and features hand-picked for those precarious times. Designed by STEL Design the EDC is at core a key organizer that performs double duty as an accessory to locate your lost gadgets or important things. The multitool is loaded with Tile Smart Technology to track the location of gadgets, you have a knack of losing every now and then. For example key fobs, wallet, phone, or anything else that matters the most.

Whether you’re a field journalist or a Wilderness First Responder (WFR), a waterproof pen could come in handy on a daily basis. The Tactiv Bolt Action Pen is loaded with Rite-In-The-Rain® permanent ink that can write underwater and in extreme weather conditions for temperatures ranging from -30°F to 250°F. The bolt action trigger also dislodges and retracts the pen tip in a clean, quick swoop to echo the feel of loading a rifle – simply, push, turn, and release. The premium housing for the pen is also built from a hefty combination of aluminum, stainless steel, and polished copper, offering the same tactile experience of the rifle it was inspired by, the M16A4 Series 5.56mm Rifle. Built from aluminum, stainless steel, and polished copper, the Tactiv Bold Action Pen is designed for the outdoors.

A utility knife is one essential EDC virtually everyone has used at some point in their life. But this particular knife variation brings a unique trick to the show, one that will make you think, why hasn’t anyone thought of this already? The tool doubles as a scraper knife for getting rid of those hard-to-remove adhesive marks, old paint stains from furniture, labels from windows and mirrors, or anything stubborn that’s getting hard to get rid of across multiple surfaces. The switchblade-inspired form gets flipped by 90 degrees, giving it a horizontal orientation that a scraper needs. This simple yet effective transformation comes in handy for anyone who works with hand-made designs. And yes, the blade comes with an easily replaceable design once the sharpness wears out.

Meet Modulor, as the name suggests, a modular power bank concept that comes with swappable components to go beyond an ordinary power bank. These external modules fit into place securely, courtesy of the magnetic pogo pins. The modular design is reinforced by an internal skeleton system – on which you can easily swap in modules like LED light or storage for transferring data. Physically, the action mimics inserting a battery into your phone or a camera – everything fits in its place with a reason. The Modulor is designed to hold a 5W LED Light Module capable of 6000K color temperature for finding things in the dark or using it as a flashlight. Then there is the 32B flash drive module having 35Mb/s reading speed and a wireless Qi charging pad attachment having a 7.5W charging rate.

Here enters the Zootility ST-2 foldable pocket knife into the spotlight, reinforced with a unibody design thanks to the screw-less form factor. The multi-tool is a mere 0.080 inches thick, measures 3.51-inches in the closed configuration, and the open mode extends to 5.8-inches. ST-2 is crafted out of 440C stainless steel material, so you can bank on its strength for cutting even the hardest of materials with utter ease. One exciting feature of this EDC that will be important for frequent travelers is the patented FlyOff technology that allows you to remove the blade from the body quickly and forfeit it when you forget to take it out of your pocket at the airport. You’ll be able to get the replacement blade with ease, saving you from all the trouble.

Designed as a heavy-duty carabiner-leash, the GPCA X Clip PRO is, well, for heavy-duty dogs. It comes with a CNC-machined 360clip that easily clips onto any dog collar or harness, offering a better user experience than traditional clasps, which are fiddly and fragile at best. The 360clip is thicker and comes machined out of solid stainless steel. It clips onto any D-ring with absolute ease, and a diamond-knurled grip makes it easy to maneuver for humans, allowing you to slip it on or off with ease. The 360clip even supports a special no-pull leash looping formation, formulated via the GPCA team. By simply allowing you to loop the leash around the dog’s front legs before clipping it to the D-ring, the no-pull formation forces the dog to turn sideways every time they pull too hard against the leash.

This travel tea flask comes with a built-in infuser to give you the best brew without messy tea bags!

Inspired and derived from Chinese tea culture, Chá is a travel tea flask that brings the ritual of brewing tea at home back into making tea on the go.

Making your first cup of tea in the morning feels like a ritual. Like clockwork, the water boils, the flavor of tea leaves seep into your cup, and the tea is ready to be enjoyed while you curl up next to a window and read. Having tea on the go is a little different. When we make tea in stainless steel, thermal bottles, we can’t see how strong we’re making it and our tea-making rituals are always cut short. Chá is a travel tea flask that ties the ritual back into making tea on the go, born from a collaboration between Chinese EV maker Nio and UAL’s Central Saint Martins.

Chá is a travel tea bottle that can switch between a tea infuser and a regular thermal water bottle. Topped with a transparent lid, Chá allows each user to witness the seeping process while brewing tea to ensure their desired tea strength is achieved. With a handy rubber strap, users can even brew their tea with the bottle strapped to their backpack. The brewing process of Chá is just like filling a water bottle, but the lid of Chá features a compartment where users can place tea bags near a built-in infuser and transparent section that reveals the strength of each brew.

The built-in infuser opens with a turn of the bottle’s lid, then the user can turn Chá upside down and watch as their water darkens with tea. If users want to only drink water, then the infuser can be just as easily closed and Chá can be filled with fresh water to be used as a regular water bottle. Ergonomic and inviting by design, Chá combines style with the traditional ritual of tea making.

Explaining the brewing process, the designers behind Chá describe, “Twisting the two halves of the opaque lid against one another to form an ‘O’ or a horizontal ‘S’, opens or closes the infuser respectively. An open infuser allows the contents of its flask to infuse with each other. Enabling the infuser and flipping the flask upside down exposes the water to the tea leaves for infusion while the user can monitor for their desired thickness of the tea through the transparent lid.”

Designers: ual x Nio

By twisting the lid’s two halves, users activate the infuser. 

Silicone elements provide some grip for Chá’s bottle.

A handy strap allows users to hold Chá in a variety of ways, like strapping it to a backpack. 

Following several ideations, the final form of Chá envisions a subdued, yet bright blush pink stainless steel bottle with silicone elements and a transparent upper lid.  

Bring and make tea on the go with Chá.

This carabiner-based dog leash is a ruggedly designed EDC for all sorts of rough and tough dogs




By definition, a carabiner clip’s designed for securely clipping items to yourself, or even yourself to tethers. Carabiners are designed to be incredibly load-bearing, and they’re mostly relegated to heavy-duty military, construction, and camping equipment… the GPCA X Clip PRO makes the case that if a carabiner clip can allow you to tether yourself while rock-climbing, why can’t it also be used to securely hold your dog while walking outdoors?

Designed as a heavy-duty carabiner-leash, the GPCA X Clip PRO is, well, for heavy-duty dogs. It comes with a CNC-machined 360clip that easily clips onto any dog collar or harness, offering a better user experience than traditional clasps, which are fiddly and fragile at best. The 360clip is thicker and comes machined out of solid stainless steel. It clips onto any D-ring with absolute ease, and a diamond-knurled grip makes it easy to maneuver for humans, allowing you to slip it on or off with ease. The 360clip even supports a special no-pull leash looping formation, formulated via the GPCA team. By simply allowing you to loop the leash around the dog’s front legs before clipping it to the D-ring, the no-pull formation forces the dog to turn sideways every time they pull too hard against the leash. Perfect for larger dogs (although just as functional and aesthetically suitable for smaller, cuter pooches), this no-pull formation disables their ability to forcefully tug on the leash, giving owners control over their excitable pets!

On the other side of the leash is the carabiner, designed and proportioned perfectly to fit right into the hand and serve as a high-tension handle. The carabiner can easily clip onto poles or your bike’s handlebar (or even around the leash) to secure the pet when you want, and can be used as a handle while walking your dog. Its design is perfectly grippy and can be held in one of three ways, depending on how big or strong your dog is. For smaller or gentler dogs, the carabiner can be held or even secured to your belt loop, or even your pocket via a pocket clip. With larger, more powerful dogs, the carabiner itself can be gripped within your palm, giving you the perfect grasp to ensure that you don’t accidentally let go of the leash as your dog tugs on it. What’s convenient about the carabiner is that it isn’t even limited to a single dog leash. Just open it up and slide multiple leashes in, and you’ve got a single grip to tether all your dogs… you could even chuck your keys or poo-bag-holder in for good measure.

The GPCA X Clip PRO’s carabiner comes machined out of either stainless steel, or infinitely stronger titanium. Either of the variants give the carabiner the ability to take 400 lbs of force, allowing you to easily reign in even the most brutish of dogs without worrying about a leash digging into your skin, or snapping apart because of your large dog’s tugging ability. Given how versatile and universal the carabiner is, you could use it for other things too, while camping, trekking, or even carrying things around (it isn’t rated for climbing, FYI)… and perhaps my favorite part about the carabiner’s design, a tiny detail that allows it to even open bottles with ease!

Sitting between the carabiner and 360clip is the GPCA X Clip PRO Set’s rope leash. Thicker than flat-woven leashes, the rope is akin to the kind of paracord of tethering cord used in camping, rock-climbing, and even military rappelling. It’s measurably stronger, much more comfortable, and comes with a nifty adjusting mechanism that lets you easily adjust the length of your leash on the fly.

Every element of the GPCA X Clip PRO Set is designed as an upgrade to the current leash system… functionally as well as visually. The ruggedly designed EDC works well on its own, and allows you to universally use the clip and carabiner with other leashes too, letting you walk multiple dogs while easily gripping onto them. The carabiner clip can secure onto bike handlebars and car-handles too, or even around your belt-loop or a harness-jacket, if you’re walking multiple dogs together. The metal clip and carabiner come CNC-milled and are designed to last for years, while the rugged rope-leash boasts a 6-core design and comes made from stainless-steel and polyester for high-durability and strength. It’s not often that we see a lot of pet-centric EDC here on Yanko Design, but the GPCA X Clip PRO Set definitely sets the standard extremely high!

The most versatile and useful flashlight on the planet has a magnetic mounting system and an internal power bank




Imagine being able to charge your smartphone with your bicycle’s headlight. Sounds a little absurd, but it’s one of the many things the F.100 can do. Equipped with a 1000 lumen CREE LED bulb, a 2600 mAh battery, an IPX6 waterproof design, and a magnetic mounting system, the F.100 is pretty much designed for anything you can throw at it. It’ll charge your phone, brightly illuminate your surroundings, work perfectly well in inclement weather, and even snap around objects like your bike’s handlebar to transform into a bright, makeshift headlamp. It comes with one-push adjustable brightness, a replaceable battery, and can even charge your gadgets via USB-C. Your smartphone’s flashlight may be pretty convenient, but the F.100 is purpose-built to be more versatile, more powerful, and just the most useful EDC flashlight you can carry around.

The F.100 isn’t your dollar-store flashlight… And it isn’t that basic little light mounted on the back of your smartphone either. With a 1000 lumen CREE LED bulb and a scratch-free mineral glass cover encased in a robust hard-anodized aluminum frame, it’s much more powerful and durable than the average pocket flashlight. It’s portable and weatherproof, making it the perfect addition to your everyday carry, and it complements your needs and your gadgets’ needs too, thanks to its flexible mounting system and the fact that it serves as a power bank too.

The flexible magnetic mounting system brings innovation to how you can use your flashlight. The F.100 features a paracord with internal rare-earth magnets, for easy carrying, a torch mount that attaches to any metal surface, and a matching bike mount that turns your F.100 into a bonafide headlamp. Now you can store, carry and use your torch like never before – from your refrigerator, workshop, bike, car, or caravan, you can choose where and how to light up your night.

The 1000 lumen LED is powered by F.100’s internal replaceable 2600 mAh battery, which also interfaces with a USB-C port that fast-charges via power delivery. This allows you to recharge your torch to 50% in 30 minutes or even use the torch as an external power bank to recharge your other gadgets. Since the battery is replaceable, you can bump up its capacity too, choosing an 18650 Li-ion battery with a higher capacity for a longer usage cycle. This unique feature completely sets the F.100 in a league of its own, because it isn’t just a torch with a large battery or a power bank with a built-in LED. The fact that it’s versatile yet upgradable, and durable yet portable allows it to have a much broader appeal… and the magnetic mounting system is just an example of design-done-well, allowing you to mount your torch for a hands-free experience or even as a bicycle headlight.

The F.100 comes with a hard-anodized aluminum body, giving it a combination of sleekness, durability, and lightweight. The hard-anodized aluminum surface is impervious to scratches or chipping, and the mineral glass covering the LED resists damage too, ensuring a perfect beam of light. A single-button interface lets you switch it on or off and toggle through multiple brightness levels and even strobe mode.

The F.100’s even built to be IPX6 waterproof, which is impressive enough for a torch, never mind a water-resistant torch that also works as a headlight, and also charges all your devices. The F.100 flashlight is available at over 40% off at $69 (the magnetic mounting system is available as a $14 addon) and ships in three colors – black, silver, and a bright orange. It’s designed to be durable and realistically last multiple years, especially considering the fact that it comes with a replaceable battery you can easily swap out every few years.

Consolidated into canisters the size of hockey pucks, the Searcher Orange Camp Supplies Kit comes loaded with more than ten mini survival packs that carry everything from navigational tools to fishing supplies. Portable by design, VSSL’s Supplies Kit comes with a lid that doubles as a Suunto Compass, which is also considered one of the most trusted navigational tools on the market and carries the rest of the supply kits inside.

Developed for off-grid camping, the Searcher Orange Camp Supplies Kit comes complete with canisters that include a fire starter, mini first-aid pack, a rope and razor kit, fishing supplies pack, a beeswax candle, wire saw, water bag, adventure tape, a bamboo cloth, a miscellaneous canister that comes with a whistle, can opener, sewing kit, and gear ties, and finally a 200 lumens 4-mode flashlight.

Versatile and Feather light, Leatherman pocket multi-tool is the ideal all-in-one EDC for newbies!





Elegantly designed Leatherman multi-tool that shaves off the less required tools while adding some important ones – making it the ideal EDC for every pocket.

For any situation in life, you need to be ready with the right tool at the right time. The Leatherman Curl EDC inspired by the Wave Plus does exactly that with a touch of style. This multi-tool carries the essence of the Portland, Oregon-based origins established more than 37 years ago. Why I say that, well because it has the brand’s iconic features coming at an affordable price tag for first-time users. To be precise, the Curl EDC is a classic while being highly capable of tackling anything or everything coming its way.

Made out of 100 percent stainless steel material, the pocket tool is just the right palm-sized utility that’s so wantable. What piqued my interest about this multi-tool is the unification of 15 tools into a slim package weighing just 7.5-ounce. Leatherman has truly ticked all the right checkboxes here to appeal to a wide array of audiences. And be rest assured about its performance for a long time – after all it comes with a 25-year warranty. Virtually making it last a lifetime!

Leatherman Curl comes with a carefully chosen selection of tools like 420HC knife, bottle opener, can opener, diamond-coated file, hard-wire cutters, large bit driver, medium screwdriver, needlenose pliers, normal pliers, a ruler, spring-action scissors and wire stripper. To make it ultra-easy to carry around Curl also gets a removable pocket clip and nylon belt sheath.

 

Compared to the Wave, the Curl here gives up on the saw and serrated blade for outside accessible tools. It swaps the micro driver with an awl for the inside accessible tools. It also does away with the replaceable wire cutters and locking mechanism which I think is not much of a loss unless you cutting wires or fences every other day!
