Light Pockets & The iPhone

Read More

So a friend of mine only “EDCs” three items – an iPhone, a driver’s license, and a credit card. As such, even great little solutions like the Slimmy are just too much for him. In the past, he has just used a rubber band to keep his cards together and let his iPhone float in his pocket. Recently, however, Case-Mate has come up with a solution.

I’m a bag whore. I have bags for just about every occasion. Going on a two day trip through the air? Got it covered. Going on a four day trip on the ground? No sweat. Back and forth from work? I got a bag for that too…

Of course, the only problem with this is that I end up jockeying a lot of gear between the bags depending on what I have planned. Inevitably, I forget to move something or other to the “bag of the day” and find myself living without. For a gear guy, that sucks.

Triple Threat Tactical is ran by a guy named Jim Rosario… and that’s about all I know about the bag featured below. Jim posts occasionally on some of the more covert forums covering tactical gear and is known to be a pretty talented guy, but his site is under construction and the rest of the business is pretty much shrouded in mystery. Word on the street is that the “High-Speed, Low-Drag” bag will sell for around $499. Expensive? Yes. Cool? Yes.

A buddy of mine recently scored this bag and while it’s a bit pricy ($285) and certainly a little more “hip” than I like my bags to be, there is no denying the fact that it is versatile and extremely well made. If you need a bag that is a bit less tactical and a little more professional looking, but still has a lot of storage options this one might be a good choice.

I’ve long been a proponent of front-pocket wallets. Not only do they aid against pick pockets, but they also save your back – especially if you are one of those guys that sits on his ass all day. A “lop-sided” ass really can do a lot of damage to the upper and lower back. Pay attention, I’ve got a solution.

Koyono’s Slimmy wallets are among the absolute thinnest money/card stashers on the planet. They are essentially a miniature file folder that’s open on two sides and optimized to carry essentials such as cash, credit cards, driver’s license, and receipts. Slimmies come in three flavors:
