RainyDayGiftGuide 2015: EveryDayCarry

Have fun shopping and Happy Holidays!!!

The Holiday Seasons is upon us, and once again readers have asked us for our gifts ideas.

Our selection criteria for all categories is the same every year: the items have to be things we have actually used or would actually want.

Everyday carry (EDC) is a concept we think started with Batman and James Bond; who wouldn’t want a crime-fighting utility belt or a collection of gadgets Q provided for James Bond to get himself out sticky situations? Below is our collection of EDC items for RainyDayMagazine readers, although they’re less for stopping super villains and more for normal utilitarian situations…



  • Leatherman Skeletool– At 5 ounces, the full-sized multitool keeps weight and volume to a minimum without sacrificing quality and true functionality.
    • Length: 4 inches/10 cm closed
    • Weight: 5 ounces/142 grams
    • Materials: 420HC stainless steel
    • Included Bits: Phillips #1 and #2, Screwdriver 3/16-inch and 1/4-inch



CRKT rethought the form of multi-tools and and created Flux. At the core of the Flux system of tools is a lightweight aluminum carabiner chassis. This allows tools to be quickly selected, attached to the chassis, and then clipped on clothing and gear. A perfect fit for EDC-philes.


Pocket Knife

  • Snap On Key-ring Knife– Super lightweight, super sharp, and practically invisible whether clipped to a jean’s or jacket pocket. May be easily opened with either hand.

Fix-It Tool

We discovered the magic that is Sugru four years ago. Since then, we have found endless uses for the moldable glue. This stuff is phenomenally useful AND comes in different colors!!! Always have some on hand for emergency repairs.

Third Hand

  • Morella drink holder – Need a hand holding that cup of coffee when holding an umbrella? Attach the Morella to the handle of the umbrella, pop in the coffee cup, and off you go!
