Elevating business carry to new heights
In business, sometimes it’s good to shake things up. The same can be said for business carry. Bringing innovation to the briefcase format, the Wingcase offers single-handed, easy access to the contents through two vertical side pockets or wings. The wings themselves feature organization for items such as a phone, business cards, pens, a passport and more. The Wingcase brings further functionality to the table with a host of other features. An internal power bank lets you charge phones and tablets inside the bag or via an external USB charging port. The briefcase also transforms into an overnight bag by removing the detachable laptop compartment, while still being able to accommodate a laptop in the document pocket. Learn more through the Wingcase Kickstarter campaign.
A multi-tool that delivers more
Shinola are known for great watches and bicycles. Leatherman are known for great multi-tools. Bring them together and you get something that’s, dare we say, even better than great. The Shinola x Leatherman multi-tool tweaks Leatherman’s Charge AL, giving it a matte navy anodized finish and adding a bike hex tool and watch strap changing tool to the already impressive tool lineup. Also included is a bit kit featuring a variety of bits, as well as a leather sheath to carry the multi-tool in pared-back style.
An EDC belt for travel and emergencies
Being able to keep small valuables safe or having the right tools on hand in an emergency is great. But how do you do it in a way that’s unobtrusive, easy and won’t get in the way of your lifestyle? Sometimes it’s not convenient or desirable to carry a bag or put things in your pocket – which is where the Wazoo Survival Gear Cache Belt comes in. This discreet belt makes it easy to carry important objects on your person, and with onlookers being none the wiser. The Cache Belt comes in three options, the Minimalist belt, the Essentials belt and the Adventure belt. The Minimalist belt works great as a low-key money belt or storage for small items during travel and EDC use. The Essentials and Adventure options come with a variety of useful tools and supplies to help you stay prepared for whatever the day may bring. Check out the Cache Belt Kickstarter campaign for more details.
A durable fusion of form and function
It’s the little things that can make the biggest difference to our day-to-day carry. Things like a beautiful and functional wallet to carry your essentials. The Fused Goods Bifold is just the kind of wallet that can put a spring in your step, not least because of its handsome vegetable-tanned kangaroo leather that will develop a striking patina with use. Available in four stylish colorways, the Bifold features four card slots that hold up to four cards each. There’s also a section for notes that fits AUD and USD, with a custom sizing option to fit any currency. Fused Goods pays attention to the details too, with hand stitching as well as edges that are sanded, beveled and burnished for a sleek, polished look.
Tidy organization in tidy style
Keeping an array of small carry items in order and conveniently accessible can be a hassle. But the Mod Tablet 3 from This Is Ground delivers decluttered calm to your EDC. A phone, tablet, passport, cards, pens, notebook, earphones, cables…the Mod Tablet 3 stores them all in tidy fashion, while also including a magnetic dock that accepts interchangeable inserts for even more tailored carry setups. The smart leather design looks classy in work, travel and leisure environments – and if you like your EDC with a touch of exclusivity, This Is Ground has produced a small batch of Mod Tablet 3’s exclusively for Huckberry, available in Natural Tan Vachetta, Elephant Grey, Classic Bomber, and LA Whiskey leather.
