Famed gear guru and former Mythbusters host Adam Savage is at it again, but not with blowing things up, per se. Instead, he’s exploding outward onto the manufacturing and merchandising portion of the EDC gear scene with another everyday carry bag. And this one he crafted with the consumer in mind – it’s smaller and cheaper, yet still retains the same tool bag aesthetic and utility as the EDC One.
The EDC One, made in partnership with San Francisco-based company Mafia Bags, was overwhelmingly well-received when it launched in November 2017. Constructed out of upcycled and salvaged sailcloth, this carry-all bag from Savage Industries featured everything a guy needed when storing and transporting their essentials easily from one job or location to the next.
Savage Industries’ EDC Two is still made in collaboration with Mafia Bags, still inspired by Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 12 McDivitt purse, and is still very much a durable tool bag, boasting the same virtually indestructible sewn recycled sailcloth as its predecessor.
Now available in white (so you can see your tools) and a sleek black, the EDC Two is also going to be an unlimited release, so you won’t have to worry about not being able to get your own. The bag is downsized into three pieces of fabric, weighs just over a single pound, and is even more versatile that its predecessor, featuring a pencil holder, web strap, and a wide spring steel supported clam-shell mouth.
Along with these bags, Savage Industries is also selling plans for both constructions, so you can go out and sew your own creation.
Sewing looks harder than it seams (we had to go there), but Savage Industries makes it easy for you. Besides, finishing a product with your own two hands is quite the accomplishment and sewing your own bag will save you money in the long run. It’s easy to see why Adam Savage hopped into the merchandising environment, being the craftsman that he is.
Now, you can head on over to adamsavage.com and pick this puppy up for just $145. Or maybe it’s time to get sewing on your own creations and start selling your favorite design of an improvised EDC bag someday.
