The Everyday Carry

Exotac Firesleeve

Having sure fire, even in the pouring rain is extremely important. Smokers will vouch for that statement! I have thankfully never needed to start a fire for survival purposes, but know that my lighter will work even under the most rainy conditions is something I thankfully don't have to worry about. The Exotec Firesleeve, found on Huckleberry is perfect for any everyday carry where you want to make sure that you have sure fire. From putting one in the bugout bag (if you have one), or in the car to just keeping one on you in your backpack means that you'll be able to get a light when you need it.

The Firesleeve fully encases a cheap $1 bic lighter (that's ultra reliable, by the way), in an airtight, waterproof sleeve so that it's ready to use when you need it. The waterproof sleeve fits the standard size Bic Classic Lighters perfectly and actually does keep water and moisture out!

Firesleeve Materials

The Firesleeve is made from a high end polymer plastic, and comes in black. It has the "EXOTAC" name on the side and is fully water proof (30 minutes @ 3 feet). You'll notice that there are attachment points on both the cap and body. You can run a paracord line through both ends so you're sure that you don't lose anything, and also attach it to a carabiner, for instance so you're sure you don't lose it either.

Firesleeve Notable Features

Exotec FiresleeveFirst of all, the Firesleeve floats. If you're like my uncle on a fishing trip and always dropping things in the water, than you need the Firesleeve! It's water proof even when submerged three feet down for 30 minutes and still lights up. Additionally, as I said in the previous paragraph, you can attach the Firesleeve to a carabiner so you're sure you won't drop it.

Second, the cap prevents the gas button from being depressed accidentally (like when a lighter's in your pocket with a lot of other stuff). You know that the lighter fluid will be at the same level when you need it as when it was last checked.

Finally, the Firesleeve has a gas lock that will allow the lighter to stay lit without holding the button down. Not sure if you really want to leave it lit unchecked for that long, but word on the internet is that you wouldn't want to keep it lit more than 60 seconds for safety's sake.

You might never need a lighter, but at some point, everyone needs to start a fire of some sort, and having a reliable, quick source of sure fire such as this really makes things convenient!

  • Pokka Pens Are The Perfect Pocket Pens for Everyday Carry

    everyday carry pokka pen reviewPokka Pens are ballpoint pens that conveniently fit into your pocket when not in use. I got my order of Pokka pens just a couple weeks ago, and I have absolutely fell in love with them. Their small size makes it easy to carry a pen in your pocket, Everyday Carry pouch, backpack or purse, and they perform very closely to the feel of a Bic Crystal, those old clear Bic pens that used to sit by your grandparent's rotary phone.

Whirl Pak 1 liter bags fold down to almost nothing, so you can take a bunch with you to gather and save water when needed. While the bags, made by Nasco, are seen more commonly in bug out bags and prepper gear, it never hurts to have a couple with you, even if there isn't a water emergency. Having a Whirl-pak bag means being able to carry water with you, even if it's only because you think you're going to get thirsty on your commute home. A six-bag pack can be found on Amazon for $10.

  • Nebo Lil Larry 6373 Work Light 250 Lumens White/Red LED

    thumb NEBO LiL Larry Work LightOK, so I was saving the second Nebo work light for today's review. Yesterday, I reviewed the Nebo LEO 220 Lumens flashlight and this little flashlight is of similar design. Although it doesn't have the spotlight head that the LEO has, the Lil Larry (Stock# 6373) has it's own set of really cool features.

    As the title says, it's a 250 lumen work light, but has a low mode putting out about 100 lumens, and a red LED emergency flasher mode that blinks twice a second. The flashlight costs around $18 on Amazon, and is the perfect work light for your home, car or everyday carry bag.

  • US Army Compass Pouch LC-1 Coat & Belt Everyday Carry

    thumb US Army Compass Pouch EDC 10A couple days ago I stopped in Joe's Army Navy over in Royal Oak, MI. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, but as always, I walked out with some items. One of the items was a Compass Pouch (LC-1). I had a few of these a while ago, and I really liked them to keep small items in. With this one, I decided that I'd use it as a very small Pocket Everyday Carry that holds a few OTC Meds and First Aid. Due to it's small 4"x4"x1.5" capacity, it's perfect, and these compass pouches like mine, usually come with an Alice Clip that was the Molle System's predecessor. I like this little clip because it's easy to clip the pouch to my belt if needed. Let's take a look inside to see what I've put in it.
