The kids today will never know the joys of curating a mixtape and gifting it to your best friend (or special someone). Nor will they ever know the frustrations of waiting to hear your new favorite song on the radio and hoping to press “Rec” in time so that it copies onto your blank cassette. This EDC pocket dump is inspired by the glory days in the ’80s and ’90s when we would buy these tapes in bulk and have actual tangible experiences with our media.
Huckberry x TIMEX IRONMAN Flix Reissue
We’ve seen a lot of retro watch reissues, but few are as faithful to the original as Timex’s latest IRONMAN Flix re-release. In partnership with online retail curator Huckberry, the new timepiece sees the return of the 1999 model that was hugely popular amongst endurance athletes, adventurers, and first responders alike. Using the same mold as the original, the Flix Reissue sports a digital time and date display and can store up to five alarms. Illuminated with INDIGLO Night-Light that can be activated hands-free by raising your arm, the timepiece features a chronograph, a countdown timer, and a 10-item memo pad. The only update made this time around is the increase in lap memory from 30 to 100.
DANGO Limited Edition Ultem Mini Pen
DANGO’s translucent Mini Pen utilizes the aerospace-grade Ultem, a super-strong plastic material that’s resistant to high temperatures such as hot water and steam. Unlike a typical pen, this EDC tool from DANGO is loaded with a Schmidt 4889M ballpoint pressurized ink refill that lasts three times longer and allows the pen to write upside down.
Maverick Customs 5” Ti Pocket Pry
Sometimes the only tool you need is a pry bar. It’s good for separating objects, pulling out nails, and the spontaneous everyday tasks you might come across. Known for its high-quality knives and tools, Maverick Customs made its own Pocket Pry that spans 5” and boasts a titanium construction that makes it lightweight. Sporting a grenade frag texture on one side, this device also comes equipped with a bottle opener.
Garrett Leight Doc Sun Sunglasses
Since launching in 2010, Garrett Leight has been making quality shades that echo the laid-back vibe of the state it calls home. For these Doc Sun sunglasses, the California-based brand uses bio acetate for its frames and anti-reflective lenses made from mineral glass and CR-39 plastic. Inspired by ‘80s nightlife, these specs sport a double bridge and barrel hinges with real rivets.
