Our Top 10 Favorite EDC Gear Of 2023

Can you believe we're only two months away from 2024? But before we get there, we wanted to share our favorite EDC essentials for this year. We've handpicked these 10 EDC gears because they have made our lives so much easier. Whether you're navigating the hustle and bustle of the city or exploring the great outdoors, these essentials will definitely level up your everyday carry game. So, let's dive in and take a look!

1. Zip Card Pouch


Now on pre-order, this pocket-sized wonder is the perfect solution for keeping your cards, coins, and cash all in one place. And the best part? It's not only durable and lightweight, but it also has fantastic organization options with its front pocket and zippered compartment. This little gem is compatible with our HUB Ecosystem, making it super easy to connect to your backpack strap, sling, or messenger bag for quick and convenient access. And if you prefer a hands-free option, simply attach it to your belt for maximum accessibility while carrying minimal gear.



TiPick is a toothpick made of titanium which is an eco-friendly, hygienic alternative to disposable wooden toothpicks. Despite its small size, TiPick is a formidable tool that's perfect for on-the-go use, and you'll be amazed at how much of a difference it can make in your daily routine whenever something gets stuck in your teeth.

3. Olight Warrior Mini 3 Portable Tactical Flashlight


This rechargeable flashlight may be just 4.37 inches long, but it packs a punch with a maximum output of 1,750 lumens, a throw distance of 240 meters, and a runtime of up to 100 days. With 6 different modes, you'll have the perfect lighting for any situation, all day long.

4. Leatherman Micra


Experience the power of 10 tools in 1 with this compact multitool. It's got everything you need, from a knife to tweezers and even spring-action scissors. And all of this is packed into a lightweight 1.8-ounce keychain-sized device that never gives up.

5. Dark Energy Poseidon Pro

Stay connected on the go with the ultimate tough portable battery that you can rely on! This powerhouse has a 10,200mAh power capacity, providing 30+ hours of power for smartphones, 4+ hours for laptops, and 10+ hours for camera gear. Not only that, but it also boasts an IP68 waterproof rating, allowing it to be completely submerged in water for over 45 minutes without any damage. Thanks to its Armor Flex™ Tech, the Poseidon Pro has survived a 50 ft drop, a shotgun blast, 1500 lbs of crushing force, and even 1.5 lbs of explosives. 

6. Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical

Built for life’s adventures and known for its heritage as a military watch, the Khaki Field Officer Handwinding watch is a must-have for those who value simplicity and durability. It’s also been featured in Pearl Harbor (2001), worn by Capt. Rafe McCawley / Capt. Danny Walker, played by Ben Affleck / Josh Hartnett.

7. James Brand The Duval


Experience the perfect fusion of functionality and timeless elegance of a classic gentlemen's pocket knife with this classic front-flipper knife. Unlike traditional gentlemen's knives that require two hands to open and close, the Duval features a front-flipper opening style for convenient one-handed operation. And with its frame-lock design, you can enjoy the added security of a locking mechanism.

8. Shift Pack V2


Upgrade your everyday bag with the versatile Shift Pack V2. Perfect for commuting, carrying your laptop, or even as a carry-on for your next trip. Made with durable and weatherproof Axoflux™ fabric, this bag can handle anything. Expand the volume with the rolltop opening and keep your laptop safe in the separate padded compartment.

10. HydraPak Stash™ 1L
