Titanium, named for the Titans of Greek Myth, is one of the most remarkable metals known to man. It exhibits a strength comparable and, in some cases, surpassing that of steel, but in a package that is far lighter. It is also highly resistant to corrosion – more than nearly all of its metallic brethren. It’s for these reasons and more that we like to integrate this element into our carry whenever feasible. Lucky thing is, more and more people are using it as a building material for their everyday carry gear. It seems the world is catching on to the numerous benefits of Titanium. The following weekly gear round up is marked by a few examples of superb gear made with it that you can find on the market today.

This reimagining of the now more than 100-year-old traditional keyring beats out its predecessor in every way. The titanium construction, simple but secure lateral split construction, and handsome design are just better.

If you’re tired of the jingling and constant key clumping of traditional keychains, you’ll probably love this slimmed down 8-key organizer. And it also comes with a key fob attachment.

As if being the world’s smallest USB rechargeable flashlight isn’t enough, this portable torch boasts an output of up to 130 lumens across two settings, has a runtime of up to 6 hours, and is both impact and water resistant.
Handgrey HG Titanium Carabiner
Built with pure functionality in mind, this beefy carabiner – which is EDM wire cut and features an integrated bottle opener – is so tough it will likely outlast any of the keys you might attach to it.
