Our Favorite Everyday Carry (EDC): Wallets & Money Clips
We are always getting questions about what products go great with Keyport, so we put our heads together and started a series of blogs beginning with this one to tell you all about our favorite everyday carry a.k.a. EDC for those in the know.
For our first post in the series, we are going to focus it on wallets and money clips since it is one of the three everyday carry essentials along with your
keys Keyport key organizer and your phone. We are trying to link to these items on Amazon so that they are easy for you to review and purchase. Please note that we are an Amazon affiliate, and we may earn a small commission when you purchase a wallet or money clip. That said, our primary motivation is to put quality everyday carry products in your hand that complement your Keyport products.
Before we get to our favorite wallets and EDC money clips, we would be remiss if we didn't briefly mention the other two EDC must-haves:
If you haven't done so already, it's time to ditch your bulky, jingly keychain that pokes you in the leg or worse, and if you misplace it... well, have fun re-keying the house and replacing that $400 car fob.
Now you can carry a modular multi-tool that streamlines your keys, tools, and tech, that infuses form with function, and that includes a two-year subscription to KeyportID lost & found.
Keyport Pivot 2.0
Offered in a range of high quality materials - aircraft grade aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium - our modular Swiss Army style key organizer features a proprietary locking mechanism, durable D-ring for attaching loose items like a fob, and one of the easiest setups of any key organizer. Check out the Pivot out on our site or on Amazon. MSRP @ $29+.
Keyport Slide 4.0
Back after a two year hiatus, the Limited Edition Keyport Slide 4.0 LE1 is the only key organizer with true one handed access and features the same award-winning modularity as the Pivot as well as the two year subscription to KeyportID lost & found service. It is now available for pre-order. MSRP @ $79+.
Because carriers play such an important role in the availability of some phones, we won't go into detail very much other that to say most of us are iPhone users while Youri, our lone Android standout, rocks a Motorola Moto G Power (2022).
We will tackle phone cases and other phone accessories in a future post, but we will mention a couple of wallet phone cases below.
