Note: The model shown here is a prototype made from 3D printed plastic. The final version will be milled out of aluminum.
The BladeKey Bolt is a simple but well thought out device. Actually, you can probably guess how it operates just by looking at it. In a nutshell, it transforms your keychain into a pocket knife style key organizer.
No jingling. No poking. Just organized keys.

The last announcement today is the release of our new ITS Subdued Logo T-Shirts that incorporate nothing more than a minimalist subdued ITS Logo on the front.

We’re excited to announce the winners in our ongoing What’s in Your Pockets Forum Contest. Due to the length of time we let the contest run, we decided to choose the top three posts and award them each a $25 Gift Certificate to the ITS Tactical Store.
You guys made some great posts and it was definitely a challenge to choose only three, but here they are! From now on, this contest will be run on a monthly basis so if you didn’t win this time, be sure to get your post in on the ITS Forum for July’s Contest!
Winner #1 – EDC Planet
Winner #2 – Revisualize
Winner #3 – GuardianEthos
Congratulations to our winners! Please send us an email to claim your prize and we’ll get your gift certificate issued!
Be sure to get your entry into the What’s in Your Pockets contest we’re running in the ITS Forum! We’ll be selecting the winner on Wednesday and they’ll receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the ITS Tactical Store!
We’ll be picking the winner based on their entry being a functional and realistic EDC. This means it actually has to be what you carry in your pockets, not in a bag (as much as we want to see photos of your Discreet Messenger Bag.) Of course this is totally left open to our interpretation and why we’d like a brief description of what you’re carrying too.
To enter, simply join our Forum (if you’re not a member already) and post up your photo in this topic with a brief description of your EDC. We’ll look in on the submissions and pick a winner this Wednesday. The winner’s photo will be posted on the homepage of ITS Tactical along with the announcement.
Editor-in-Chief’s Note: I’m excited to announce a new book from my good friend Rob Robideau of the Personal Armament Network. Rob has been a contributor here at ITS for some time and recently released The Practical Guide To Everyday Carry Gear, which includes information from an interview I did with him on emergency medical gear.
What he’s included in this article today is a conversation he had with Dave Spaulding regarding Defensive light use. I’d encourage everyone to check out The Practical Guide to Everyday Carry Gear for an incredible collection of interviews from the likes of Michael Janich, Massad Ayoob and even our friends Doc and Cruz from RSKTKR Consulting. Another great thing about this book is that 50% of all profits are donated to charities, including Knife Rights. [Read More…]
I’d like to start something new here on ITS today and start sharing all the EDC (Every Day Carry) photos we receive in our Forum here on ITS. We’re also going to turn it into a contest every few weeks and give away a $25 gift certificate to the ITS Store!
We’ll select an EDC based on only one criteria… Rule number one, always look good! Just kidding, we’ll pick it based on being a functional and realistic EDC. This means it actually has to be what you carry in your pockets, not in a bag (as much as we want to see photos of your Discreet Messenger Bag.) Of course this is totally left open to our interpretation and why we’d like a brief description of what you’re carrying too.
To enter, simply join our Forum (if you’re not a member already) and post up your photo in this topic with a brief description of your EDC. We’ll look in on the submissions and pick someone every few weeks to win. The winner’s photo will be posted on the homepage of ITS Tactical along with the announcement. I’ll start things off this week and show everyone what’s in my pockets today. And yes, all this is really all in my pockets. [Read More…]
We’re excited to release our Every Day Carry Trauma Kit today and feel it’s truly something you’ll never leave home without. No longer will you have the excuse of not being able to carry lifesaving equipment with you wherever you go!
We wanted to design a minimum bare-bones trauma kit, smaller than our ETA Trauma Kits, that would not only be comfortable enough to throw in a back pocket, but also be capable of treating the number one preventable cause of death in the field according to the TCCC; extremity hemorrhage AKA bleeding out.
The EDC Trauma Kit is literally the size of an average wallet and even smaller in some instances, especially if you carry a Costanza. It can be stuffed in a back pocket and only weights 6 ounces with the included pouch! [Read More…]
We’ve had our new EDC Trauma Kit in development for quite awhile now and we thought it was time to unveil what we’ve been working on.
The EDC Trauma Kit is a vacuum sealed trauma kit with the essentials to stop life threatening injuries. We wanted to develop a smaller version of our ETA Trauma Kits that would still contain the essentials, yet fit just about anywhere.
It’s literally the size of a wallet, can be stuffed in a back pocket and only weights 5 ounces! [Read More…]
The straps on G-Shocks can sometimes be a bit too long for the average person. That’s especially true of my GW-5600J, to the point where they stick out and catch on the cuff’s of my shirts and long sleeves.
I posted a question on a popular watch forum to ask if anyone ever trimmed their straps, partly because I was curious to know how many other pencil-wristed G-Shock wearers were having the same problem and partly to see how many people were willing to take a knife to their beloved Gs. [Read More…]
