Organize – to form as or into a whole consisting of interdependent or coordinated parts, especially for united action.
Dad likes to organize. He likes things in a certain place, a specific order, and where he can find items when he needs them.
Whatever you do, DON’T mess with dad’s systems.
Here are five everyday carry items for the organized dad.
Micro EDC Key Organizer: We’ve all seen EDC key carry pieces that hold a bunch of keys together with a bolt-like mechanism, but the Micro Key Organizer is the most stripped-down one yet with nothing more than the hardware itself. The organizer includes individual spacers for dad’s keys and a multi-tool for prying, slicing, and cracking cold ones. [$19]
Word. Stealth Camo Notebook: Notebooks are designed to help organize dad’s life while looking good in the process. Each pocket notebook features 48 pages of lined paper with the unique Word. bullet point system. Designed and made in the USA. [$9]
Ultralight Black Hole Hip Pack from Patagonia: Patagonia shrunk down their popular Black Hole duffel bag down to an EDC-only gear hauler known as the Ultralight Black Hole Hip Pack. Built from a lightweight yet highly durable 100% recycled nylon ripstop fabric that’s weather-resistant and extremely packable. [$29]
Journeyman Wallet from Tanner Goods: The Journeyman Wallet is handmade in Portland from premium leather hides with a minimalist design and a surprising amount of storage space for all dad’s cards and cash. [$65]
Kershaw Select Fire Multifunction Pocketknife: The Select Fire from Kershaw is unlike other multi-tools. Most multi-tools include a plethora of “tools,” many of which are not actually very useful, and in many of these tools, the knife blade is an afterthought – and barely useful at all.
