It’s a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.
The great minds over at CountyComm have assembled some of the most clever bits of EDC gear made of titanium. Their new Titanium Skeleton EDM carabiner is yet another outstanding everyday carry design from them. Titanium carabiners are familiar sights in the EDC community, but CountyComm adds some sauce to the formula with this one by skeletonizing and removing material from its frame. The result is an ultra-lightweight 3.9-gram carabiner designed to fit and hold your keychain together without unnecessary bulk.
This super thin carabiner is made of grade 4 springy titanium and has enough strength to stand up to 15 pounds of pulling force. That’s not enough to carry serious weight, but more than enough to work as your daily driver keychain carabiner. This carabiner is also inherently corrosion-resistant, so you do not have to worry if you get caught in the rain with it in your hands. Its unique skeletonized look and smooth sandblasted appearance will also help your EDC stand out from the pack when you’re on the go.
What we like: The CountyComm Skeleton EDM carabiner is one of the lightest all-metal carabiners you can add to your everyday carry without being fragile. And titanium will always be an excellent addition to any aspect of your EDC.
What to watch out for: With a strict 15-pound weight limit, you should only use it to hold items like keys and small things together. You cannot rely on it like a properly-rated climbing and camping carabiner.
Final verdict: If you’re looking to lighten your load and keep your house and car keys together with a slim EDC carabiner, look no further than the EDM.
