At the end of December, I reviewed the Olight S2R Baton flashlight. I really like this flashlight because it has an easy to press button on the grip instead of the tail cap, and it uses a special rechargeable battery that charges through a magnetic USB cable. It's quickly become my favorite flashlight, but now… Read More

I am very picky about my EDC. I want quality items that are simple to use and are as minimal as possible when it comes to how much space they take up. About a year ago I realized that I almost never use cash anymore. When I buy something it's easier to swipe a credit… Read More
