AETHER & The James Brand Unleash An Exclusive & Rare EDC Essentials Kit

The concept of everyday carry isn’t about a single, all-encompassing piece of gear. Rather, it’s about crafting a collection of tools you can carry around with you to help you maneuver any situation in which you might find yourself. And while most folks probably prefer to create their own, custom kit, sometimes it’s better left to the experts. That’s why The James Brand and AETHER teamed up on their own EDC Kit.

The James Brand, while relatively young, has built a reputation around its comprehensive catalog of useful, handsome pocketable gear. Similarly, AETHER has carefully and consciously made itself known for stylish-yet-functional adventure-focused apparel. Unsurprisingly, the tour-de-force collaboration is nothing shy of breathtaking. The kit includes TJB’s Ellis multi-tool knife and Benton pen — both limited-edition and styled by AETHER — a Moleskin passport-sized notebook, and a water-resistant zippered pouch in which to stash it all. If you’re looking for an all-inclusive everyday carry loadout, but you prefer offerings that are amongst the elite and rare, you could do far worse than this $275 setup.
