Existence demands our full promiscuous embrace, testing us, and commanding us to prepare ourselves for adventure. eVr1 products prepare you for this challenge and believes all your gear should as well. Durable goods you use everyday should be the best.
Below is a list of products, not made by eVr1, that we recommend to take your story out into the world. This gear, sold by other folks like Amazon, possesses the optimal balance between functionality, form, price and durability (sustainability).
Gerber Crucial Multi-tool - The lightest weight and most inexpensive of the premium multi-tools (Leatherman, Swiss Army, etc.). Pliers, Phillips head and flat head screwdrivers, serrated knife. Fully extend the knife and Phillips head screwdriver and open the handle and you have an incredibly lightweight defense tool. Perfect for the car, messenger bag or purse. We refuse to let loved ones leave home without one of these.
Casio Pathfinder - The ultimate mid-priced outdoorsmen's watch. Compass, barometer, altimeter, log, stopwatch, chronograph, world time, solar powered and water resistant to 100M. Looks great with 10 ft of paracord wrapped about the strap in the dragon weave.

Paracord - The best multipurpose, lightweight rope on the market. Combined with the Crucial, knot guide and Pathfinder, you'll never be in a jam you can't get out of - ask Bear Grylls.
