For Issue 02, we flew down to Cuba to do some long-awaited exploring, gathering all of the cigars and rum the island has to offer. We then returned stateside and dug up even more. In Southern California, we visited the garage-oasis of Mercedes Motoring and obsessed over their immaculate collection of classic Benzes. We wrapped things up with edited guides full of machetes, submarines, golf equipment, sneakers, watches, and skateboards, among other gear.
Multi-tools are a staple of nearly every EDC kit. They also take up room in your pockets. The Leatherman Tread Wearable Multi-Tool moves the tools — and the ensuing bulge — from your pants to your wrist. Made from high-strength 17-4 stainless steel, it features multiple individual links that perform two or three jobs each, giving you a total of 25 tools including drivers, a cutting hook, box wrenches, a glass breaker, and the obligatory bottle opener. Available with a natural silver or black DLC finish.
