Welcome to the latest edition of EDC, where our team geeks out over objects that we have recently discovered, and cannot live without. The items we carry with us are poised to produce efficiency, especially in an array of daily tasks. With the new year in full effect, small carry items make the perfect assistance in sharpening tasks through the day and week, so take our word for these gadgets that we find extremely useful—here’s what we are carrying with us into 2021.
MICRO USB KEY
Low battery is something that always sneaks up on you, and when you’re left with dead devices unexpectedly, it can make communication rather difficult these days. Nomads Micro USB Key is an ultra-portable charging cable and easily attaches to any key ring, providing the carrier with a micro USB cable whenever they need it. The middle section is flexible and jolts a fast charge and sync to your device. If you’re someone doing work remotely or traveling long distances, this should be on your carabiner for a quick juice up.
WATERBURY AUTOMATIC WATCH
In your watch collection, there should be a go-to classy timepiece that represents traditional craftsmanship, one that turns heads with its simplicity and design. Say hello to the Waterbury from Timex, a watch that is one of Timex’s most quintessential styles. The name is bonded to the heritage, nodding to 1854 when Timex vowed to change watchmaking in America, beginning in Waterbury, Connecticut. Powered by motion, you’ll become one with the watch every time you reach for a cappuccino, downshift the Land Rover, or point to the rib eye you want at the market. What has us so fixated is the Croc Pattern black leather strap—so damn slick. Suiting up sharp for the winter months are what The Waterbury was made for.
Rosehip Seed Lip Cream
Winter winds are no joke, they dry out and chap skin more easily than you are prepared for when they arrive. This winter, reserve some space in your coat pocket for Aesop’s Rosehip Seep Lip Cream. Easily stashable, it remedies any chapped part of your lips or face with a non-greasy finish. The lightweight texture immediately is absorbed into the skin, smoothing out sore or flakey smackers and dry spots. Like anything from Aesop, it is packed with enhanced botanical extracts that not only feel good, but offer an addictive scent. The small aluminum tube makes it very durable in a pocket, so you don’t have to worry about surprise leaks in your jacket.
DAKA BIFOLD WALLET
The DAKA Bifold from Magpul is true minimalism in the form of a wallet, and made in the good ol’ USA. Every tiny centimeter was accounted for, designed to make it easy and comfortable for longer day carries. Slim and thin is the name of the game, while the durable polymer fabric can hold 4-9 standard credit cards, with lots of room for that sweet cash. You’ll feel like Spiderman every time you reach for it, as the DAKA Bifold contains an anti-slip texture. With RF-welded impenetrable seals, it’s a wallet that will live a long, wealthy life.
