In the worlds of rucking, backpacking, hiking and travel, there is an axiom: "Ounces become pounds." This is loosely translated as, "Even small, lightweight items can add up to a lot of extra weight when walking around carrying that weight for miles."  That's one reason why absorbent microfiber towels have become popular among folks who participate in [...]

I absolutely love my Keyport keychain, and I know my husband loves his just as much.  It's incredibly nice to have up to six keys and keychain tools (like an LED flashlight, pen, flash drive, bottle opener, or even an insert to hold his VIP customer card numbers)  in one compact little case about the [...]

Moms often end up carrying a lot of stuff for other family members, so her bag can be heavy, messy, and hard to find things in.  A Keyport Slide 2.0 keychain alternative could at least organize and lighten her keychain.  In a small plastic box about the size of a pack of TicTacs, she can [...]

Pinch multi-tool

Pocket tools come in many sizes and shapes these days, and are made of many exotic materials. So, what makes a pocket tool different? To me lately it has been size and weight. I have my fair share of "pocket tools" that are usually around the size of a credit card. That is great if [...]
