Simply put, concentrating different individual tools (such as knife, wire strippers, wire cutters, scissors, needles, screwdrivers and even tweezers) into a single unit means being able to perform a whole bunch of different tasks while min-maxing the space in your pouch. In that regard, multitools are all about efficiency and comfort.
If it’s the first time you carry one of these babies, chances are you won’t feel completely comfortable with one of the bigger models, and miss out on many of its uses. This is why having a sturdy yet hardly noticeable Leatherman such as the one we present you can go a long way, its size it can perfectly function as a keychain while still getting the job done at any time.
Its parts are assembled in the states and each of its tools is also Made in the USA, plus they are all metallic, and thanks to its sturdiness can give you a pro vibe while using it, since they’re often used by electricians and other professionals. It’s hands-down one of the best EDC multitool out there, so if you’re having a hard time coming up with a quality gift for an awesome price, consider this lightweight EDC multitool.
LED Flashlight: A Must Have In Your EDC Gear Loadout
From helping you move and see in the dark, finding things you dropped without having to fumble around in order to get them, to providing critical vision whenever you’re fixing plumbing, electrical appliances or even tweaking something on a car or bike, a flashlight is one of the handiest allies you can have in your EDC gear (and we’re not even mentioning its uses on emergency cases).
Imagine you’re are thrown into the dark because of an earthquake, some random power outage or any other unexpected and delicate situation, having a flashlight to guide through hazardous rubble or broken glass can become invaluable and even save your life. We know bros, it’s an extreme and unlikely event, but having an EDC gear allows you to feel confident and ready in any scenario.
What about self-defense? most of the time, petty criminals prefer to mug or even attack people in poorly lit areas during the night, so if you’re strolling or just having a walk to clear your mind from your daily business, keeping a flashlight handy can deter common muggers, not to mention any person can be spotted and even blinded for a couple of seconds giving you enough time for you to get out of harm’s way without anyone getting hurt (please do this exclusively as a last resource, ideally you want to use your flashlight as a tool and not a potential weapon).
If we think about all these different scenarios then we need a flashlight that is small enough to be in your pouch or pocket, strong and lightweight for durability and comfort. This model not only gives you that but serves different awesome functions as well:
- It has an SOS mode that you can leave on in case you need to give a distress call in a rescue situation
- It has a zoom light feature in which you can concentrate its power in a focal point.
- It’s being offered in a 2 pack presentation, allowing you for a very good price to have one with you while the other at home.
Definitely a superb item for anyone’s EDC gear, plus: it saves your phone battery since you won’t need to use its flashlight that often!
