Regular Gear Patrol readers know that when it comes to everyday carry, we admire a classic, well-designed pocket knife or multi-tool as much as anyone. But given the current moment, Screw Pop's whimsical take on EDC is incredibly compelling.
The brand's Hit Kit cleverly integrates a pipe, stash and BIC lighter holder into one compact unit, making it easier than ever to light up and lift the weight of the world off your shoulders.
The entire unit, lighter included, is roughly the size of a Leatherman Free T4, so you can discreetly slip it into your fifth pocket. We love how the parts work together: pack the bowl, then snap in the lighter (not included), which actually holds your stash in place. When it’s time to indulge, simply slide the lighter back out and fire up.
This EDC is no one-hit wonder, either. There are three additional built-in stash caches — one external, two internal — should the world be feeling especially weighty one day.
