I don’t really use EDC pry bars or things like that. I’m around tools 90% of my day and would rather use the right one for the right job. That being said, I know a lot of folks are into these things…
WESN just dropped a sort of Swiss Army Pry-Bar.
Ask anyone in the industry what the best tech pouch is and 99% of them will say it’s the Peak Design Tech Pouch. I can’t really argue against that either… It’s made beautifully and is just a really smart design. That said, I don’t often carry enough tech with me to warrant such a large pouch and hate to give away empty space in my bag.
So… What are my options? While the GORUCK Wire Dopp isn’t nearly as sophisticated in design or fabrication, it’s absolutely perfect for me. I use two and sometimes 2.5 wire dopps to organize things like my cables, chargers, batteries, hard drives, and other gear. The best thing about them is that they sort of form to whatever it is that is inside them – giving you space back in your bag.
I don’t think these are new… But I have never messed with one and just recently had an opportunity. Essentially, it’s a double carabiner with a really strong magnet in between as well as a mechanical backup. You’d figure it would be made cheaply, but it’s actually pretty damned nice.
Interesting concepts… Essentially, Floyd designed some speaker stands for Sonos. I actually like them quite a bit. Not a bad option for someone looking to add surround sound to a space that wasn’t built for it, but they don’t want the typical crap speaker companies make.
