Switch Hooks

Read More

This isn’t necessarily related to EDC, but does help you keep your EDC goods in order. It’s a simple idea that needs funding – It’s the Switch Hook. Essentially, the Switch Hook is a receptacle cover with hooks towards the bottom that allow you to store things like your key chain, bag, etc… Brilliant idea from a young mind.

Details on how you can get a Switch Hook or support the production of them here.

So this guy in Portland has an online store that he stocks with classic EDC goods as well as stuff he comes up with and produces on his own. It’s all quite inspirational really… But the real gold mine here is his blog. I love watching and reading about the way creative people work. Check it out.

It’s the question that I get asked more than any other… What do you carry every day in your bag? And I’ve answered it before, but I thought it was about time for an update. So, here it is…

DSLR Protection

This is pretty brilliant. Most of us aren’t professional photographers carrying around a body and multiple lenses. In fact, I’d bet most of you folks simply cary a camera body with a lens attached. So, how do you protect that combo without carrying a separate camera bag? Easy, get a Roma Bag. Essentially, it’s just a camera bag that was designed to hold a body with lens attached and be small enough to fit into your regular every day bag. Pretty smart.

Remodelista recently ran a little article on their favorite scissors… It’s a function meets form kind of thing. I don’t why, but I love scissors.

The Airstream Office

This isn’t exactly on topic, but I thought the theory behind the above airstream fit with the basic idea of EDC. It’s a small space that’s prepared for just about anything… and, of course, it’s mobile. The incredible design work is just a perk.

You really must check this out.

Olympus Stylus Tough

So this one just dropped… Apparently, this new Olympus compact is tough as nails. The 14 megapixel camera features a decent zoom lens (5x optical), image stabilization, 720p HD video, and an HDMI out. And it’s protected by a case that provides water proofing to 33 feet, shock proofing to 6.6 feet, crush proofing to 220 pounds, and is freeze proof to 14-degrees. That’s a lot of damn proofing for around 300 bones.

The Money Clip Knife

This one has been making the rounds today… It’s a folder that doubles as a money clip and is made of carbon fiber and titanium. I typically don’t go for this kind of a mashup, but I have to admit – this little creation is gorgeous.
