How’s about a bluetooth fed portable speaker that you can take in and out of the shit without much wear? It runs $179 and by most accounts, sounds pretty damn good.

Ti2 Pen

Read More

I think titanium pens rule… I mean, it’s not like they are all that functional. What can a Ti pen do that a cheap plastic disposable can’t? Nothing, but I don’t give a damn. This is cool.

Cloth Covered Wire

Read More

Cloth covered wiring is cool for all sorts of reasons… I use it as often as I can on projects that call for it. There’s been a shortage of the stuff on the market for the past 6 months or so, but suppliers finally have their asses in gear and you can buy it again. I get mine here.

American Made Levi’s

Read More

Yeah, I know… They are expensive, but dammit – they are made in the USA and they are Levi’s. A pair was recently gifted to me and I have to say, they are worth every bit of $200. There is something so reminiscent about raw shrink-to-fit denim. Magical.

The American Lawn Chair

Read More

OK, this isn’t exactly EDC related… But dammit man, is there anything more american than the webbed lawn chair? And to think, I figured they were obsolete and gone with the wind. I was wrong.

Warby Parker

Read More

A while back, I went to get my driver’s license renewed and failed the eye exam. So, I took my handicapped self to the eye doctor and they confirmed it – I can’t see worth a shit anymore. Armed with a prescription, I browsed the frames in the store attached to the doctor’s office. Taken aback by the pricing, I drove home on my expired license and began an internet search for a cheaper alternative.

Warby Parker rules. Check them out.
