Noteworthy New Release: Dango C01, P01 and D02
It’s not easy to set yourself apart in the everyday carry world. But Dango Products have succeeded in doing just that. Based in San Francisco, the brand is passionate about creating EDC solutions that are tough, functional and unique in style. Real conversation starters that stand out for their thoughtful fusion of distinct aesthetics and practical features. And their noteworthy new releases are no exception…
Slim and intuitive, the C01 Civilian Wallet is a great compact option for carrying cards and cash. A choice of front and back pockets allow you to easily organize cards, while the silicone band keeps cash handy and secures the contents.
The wallet is assembled by hand in the USA, featuring handsome Italian leather and a CNC’d 6061 anodized aluminum tab that’s useful for attaching the wallet to a belt or lanyard or securing keys.
You can comfortably fit up to 10 cards in the wallet. And for a little added versatility it’s also compatible with Dango’s MT02 Multi-Tool (available separately) if you want the benefits of a multi-tool within easy reach. Added bonus? The C01 Civilian Wallet includes a 550 paracord lanyard that’s 3 feet in length when unraveled.
Cards, cash, a pen and paper are solid staples in EDC setups across the world. But try carrying them all in a pocket and things are going to get bulky quickly. You could store them in a bag, but small items such as these are infamously good at disappearing into dark recesses. So Dango got thinking on how to solve this tricky problem. And they came up with a nifty solution: the P01 Pioneer Wallet, Dango Pen and Dango Notebook.
The bifold wallet is a sturdy and stylish piece crafted in the USA with beautiful Italian vegetable-tanned leather. The wallet includes a silicone band that’s great for carry versatility – use it to secure both halves together, just one side, or remove it if you prefer. The wallet keeps your personal details safe with RFID-blocking material, and fits up to 20 cards as well as the Dango MT02 Multi-Tool (available separately).
But Dango didn’t just stop at an eye-catching and functional wallet. They designed a custom pen that fits inside the wallet, made with durable and sleek CNC’d 6061 aerospace grade aluminum featuring an anodized finish. The pen includes a Schmidt 4889M pressurized ink refill and also works with Fisher Space ink refills. Silicone o-rings provide useful grip, and the slotted end is ideal for securing the likes of a lanyard or keyring.
But how about taking things one step further? No problem. The 48-page Dango Notebook comes with the Dango P01 Pioneer Wallet and Pen and fits easily into the wallet too, so you’re always prepared for to-do lists, writing down meeting notes, or capturing that awesome lightbulb moment idea. If you appreciate all-in-one portability for EDC essentials, with a compact design that fits easily in a pocket for ready access, this is the set for you.
A suave blend of compactness, contrasts and long-lasting functionality makes the D02 Dapper Wallet a smart choice for the daily grind and your downtime alike. Handmade in the USA, the wallet offers a striking contrast of eye-catching materials and enticing textures to spruce up your EDC. Top-grain leather in a choice of three colorways is combined with 6061 aerospace grade CNC’d aluminum, nickel plated and hand polished for added durability and style.
The RFID-blocking D02 Dapper Wallet is slim enough to slip into a pocket, yet still offers space for up to 12 cards. Additionally, it’s TSA compliant for easy travels, and also fits the MT02 Multi-Tool (sold separately). If you’re after sharp style that doesn’t sacrifice everyday practicality, the Dapper Wallet delivers.
