Andar Wallets

The US company makes a wide range of leather goods, their journey started back in 2015. The name ‘Andar’ being a Spanish verb meaning “to carry” and “to ride”, they say their goal is to minimize and organize what you carry. All items are skilfully handcrafted using the highest quality materials at an affordable price.

The wallet we have for review is the TURNER.  It’s a slim simple leather wallet well designed and with useful well thought out divides it really is a power house in a small form factor.

LynchNW AAP v3.5

In the EDC world, Casey’s work has been widely regarded as some of the most popular and most wanted or the past few years.   With his production increasing with the ever growing legion of fans old and new more lucky people have been able to say they own what is classed as one of the very best pry bars in the everyday carry market.

I have personally been lucky enough to have held the v1.2 the 2.5 and now the 3.5.  Still wish I’d kept the 2.5 but these things happen and that’s one joy of our edc gear, it changes and the wants, needs and regrets make it fun and interesting.

So the All Access Pass v3.5, what’s this one about?



After having a fun chat with the German company ‘Messerdepot’ they were amazing and sent some bits for us to look over. Always grateful to help the community and always happy to offer our thoughts they sent some very cool items.

In Europe it seems harder than in the USA to easily find great EDC stores and shops that have the customers best interests at heart. Since having the conversations with them we are more than happy to say they were very friendly and supportive in the discussions and showed a clear honesty and care to what they do. We applauded this and think it’s worth some praise.

They ship worldwide and work with some very cool makers. Independent makers who are making their way in the EDC and knife world and also some respected longer term makers.

Stow Wallet Review

Slip Wallet

So wallets wallets wallets. An EDC staple item that has many forms and is subject to lots of differing opinions. With the influx of minimalist wallets over the past few years there are many options to chose from. After chatting on social media with the company Stow we wanted to do a review of the STOW Slip wallet. For a slim based wallet, it has some interesting design features that make it slightly different to the rest.

So starting at the beginning is best when talking about the STOW company, One element that really stands out is the resiliency of the company after overcoming such tragedy while they were finalizing their prototypes, they were caught in the California Carr wildfire in mid-2018 that burnt down their home and manufacturing facility, which was located next to the family home, along with many other buildings around them including residences.

The Ledge, a UK legal slipjoint from StatGear…

Going back a few weeks, we were chatting with Phil, the owner of StatGear and he kindly offered to send us a product to have a look at and give him some honest feedback on… that arrived and in with the package was a totally unexpected item… a knife. We like knives here, so our interest level was raised that little more than it was already…

The Ledge from StatGear, with cool and vibrant red accents to it… but wait… it has our logo on the baled too..!!!

Originally the ledge was a kickstarter campaign… i know i bang on about them a lot but they are a great way to get a product you like made, your helping someone cremate reality from their dreams… anyway, the ledge is clearly and unfortunately one that I missed at the time of the campaign running.

The ledge, is designed with a slip-joint, UK friendly, non locking mechanism which of course been around for many years but aren’t seen all that often anymore, the LEDGE does seem to have an up to date modern take on what is a time-tested, classic design. The slip-joint mechanism & controlled back-spring movement allows for a tactile, classy and buttery smooth deployment and closure. The extended blade groove and extra blade width allows for much easier deployment of the blade than traditional slip-joint knives that have a small nail nick for opening

OrbitKey x Chipolo tracker…

Are you one of these people that loses their keys regularly..?

I know that getting changed at work and using different bags whilst at work and then travelling to and from work can get confusing as to where i last had an item… usually the keys I don’t carry whilst at work or my wallet.

Anyway, if you use or misplace your keys occasionally, a tracker of sorts may be what you need.

The ‘Orbitkey X Chipolo’ Tracker is about the size of a USBdrive and fits perfectly into your Orbitkey or many other key organisers for that matter.

The tracker needs to be paired with the ‘Chipolo’ app that is free to download to your mobile device. In the box, along with the tracker is also a little tag… it is similar to a hair bobble with a leather tab on it that can be used to attach the tracker to a bag or something, so it can be used on other things than just your keys.

Orbitkey, a key organiser for everyday carry…

I’ve been aware of Orbitkey for some time but have never really taken much notice in them specifically, not for any reason, just.. well just because I haven’t. I then saw a kickstarter campaign pop up from orbitkey pop up, this got me thinking and looking into them a bit more. I ended up in private conversation with a very nice lady from Orbitkey who gave me lots of information with regards to the new campaign that they were undertaking. We discussed the EDCCooperative, what we did etc and she then offered to send us an Orbitkey to use and have a look at. Again, we were overwhelmed that someone would actually give us this opportunity, we of course jumped at the chance.

So, i hear you asking, what is an OrbitKey Key Organize..?

Well, it is a key organiser, if you want to be able to access your keys that are stacked similar to a multi tool, like a Swiss Army knife of Leatherman for example, whilst they are all wrapped up in some quality materials, such as leather.

The Fenix ARE-X1 smart battery charger…

Fenix are well known for their flashlights as well as batteries and their chargers.
The ARE-X1 is quite a simple charger and power bank all rolled into one.

It is however, only suitable for 26650/18650, this is not a problem for me as a few of my lights are 18650 anyway. I am led to believe that many vape or e-cig systems use 18650 batteries so this kit is a bonus if you are a vaper.

The charger unit has a micro usb socket at one end that is the input point used for charging the battery. On the other end of the charger is a USB A output port for charging your item.

On the body of the charger is an led, there is only the one interface, if you can call it that. It will light up red as it is charging the battery and once the battery is fully charged, this will turn green. If you are using the battery to charge your item, it will flash red.

The output of the charger is marked as 4.2 volts but is actually reportedly to be around 5v.

WHOOSH! Device hygiene and cleaning spray… stick with us…

Have you ever noticed that when you buy a brand new pone that the screen doesn’t always show fingerprints on it straight away? It is almost like it has been treated with some sort of coating before having that massive sticker slapped on it… the one that has no air bubbles in it… how do they do that… I digress. Then, after a day or so of general use, you start to notice the grease from your face and hands appearing on the screen, don’t lie, no matter how much you wash your hands and face, it is inevitable. No matter how you might clean your screen, the dirt and grease film just seems to just smoosh and smudge all over it, it is hard to get off. Let’s also just keep in mind that the surface of a mobile phone is reported to be up to 10X dirtier than a public toilet seat. I end up spending a while cleaning the screen to get it ready for those ever important EDC pocket dumps shots, then when the iPad Pro features, with its mahoosive screen, it takes an age… if only there was a way to make this cleaning process so easy… if only there was a way that I could carry something as part of my EDC that will help me achieve a clean screen… If only…

WHOOSH! Double pack in retail packaging…
