The split keyring has been around for many years. If you're like me, you probably have a dozen of them around your house.

I'm a big fan of rucks (AKA backpacks), bags, pouches and other gear that utilizes webbing for customized, modular attachment. And since I'm also a big fan of Velcro-backed morale patches, PatchPALS by RuckWorks caught my eye. Elegant in its simplicity but clever in its function, it's basically a strip of Velcro with four wing-like tabs [...]

The folks who created the Baggizmo (and its Kickstarter project) want you to think about how you look when dressed nicely for a meeting with your client, and then replace that polished image with how you look for that meeting after you loaded up your pants and jacket pockets with all your daily-carry gear.  Ladislav [...]

When I was a kid, I loved taking things apart to find the magnets, gears and other cool little components. I even had my own little toolbox which I kept under my bed where I stored tools and parts that I had scavenged. I would have loved a multi-tool in those days. The folks at [...]

I can't believe that it's been almost 2 years since I posted my EDC setup. Time sure flies when you're having fun reviewing gadgets!
