In Review: Peak Design Everyday Sling

Back in February, we did a rundown of some interesting products from Peak Design. Since then, we gave you a hands-on review of their Tech Pouch, and we also had another one come in as well. While the Tech Pouch can help organize just about any bag you have (including the one we review today), I’m always on the lookout for something than work as an everyday bag, as well as supplementing “one bag travel” trips (whenever those start up) – enter the Peak Design Everyday Sling.

The MecArmy CPL – one small light, served up two ways

When it comes to items that you’d be considering for your everyday carry (aka EDC), a flashlight often hits that list of must-carries. I’ve got a small one on my keychain, and of course our phones can work as one in a pinch. You’re likely already wearing a watch, and perhaps carrying a pocketknife or multitool. So, why not expand the capability of those with a light attachment? That’s what the MecArmy CPL is offering.

In Review: Peak Design Tech Pouch

If you recall, it was not that long ago that we brought you word of some newer items from Peak Design. Since then, we’ve gotten a few items in that could be tested in limited travel (and have some plans to expand into some reviews for bags that work well for camping). The first one we’ve spent time with is the Peak Design Tech Pouch.

A quick Peak Design Roundup

Though thinking about traveling seems like a pipe dream these days – between cold, snowy weather and COVID – there will be a time where we’ll get out. Hey, even road tripping with your family can be done. And if you are getting out and about, good bags to keep your stuff together and organized is definitely key. To that end, the folks over at Peak Design have a few options that could help you out.

Now Funding: Claw 2.0

Amongst the many types of “gadgets” that we like, the ones that fall into the category of “Every Day Carry”, or EDC, can be among some of the most interesting. They tend to be simpler mechanical items (think of a pocket knife), not full of gee-whiz circuits, but plenty of clever design all the same. One of the latest to hit is the Claw 2.0.

Now Funding: Microblade Pill Ti

Do you recall when we first brought you word of the Microblade Pill, back in 2019? If not, it’s right here. When I came across it, I thought it was a clever little gadget, handy for always having a box opener handy when you can’t (or don’t want to) carry a pocket knife. I liked it so much I backed the original, but now they’re back with a rather delicious upgrade.

Shinola + Benchmade = a titanium delight

As you may – or may not – know, Shinola has expanded over the past few years from building watches in Detroit, to all manner of items that could be considered lifestyle items. I’m a fan of the brand (given my connections to the area), but for the life of me I never knew they made knives. One of their latest is sure to catch many eyes – the Shinola + Benchmade Titanium Pocket Knife.

There’s minimal, and then there’s the Smallet

When it comes to your wallet, well, you probably don’t think too much about it other than making sure you’ve got your cards, and probably some cash. As part of something you carry every day, though, it’s worth giving it some thought, as it can really help you slim down what is in your pocket. To that end, the most minimal one I’ve seen to date (other than a rubber band or binder clip) is the Smallet.
