A. Available in two different widths and three levels of stiffness for added rigidity, the Wilderness Tactical Products’ Original Instructor Belt features a proprietary manufacturing method, including a polymer treatment on the belt tab that soaks into the core of the nylon and bonds with it, providing permanent protection from fraying and ideal support for your EDC gear. The carbon-steel buckle is coated in a black-nitride finish for corrosion resistance, while with its integral V-ring, the belt can be used for emergency rappelling (with proper training, of course). Colors include black, coyote and foliage. MSRP: $49.95; thewilderness.com

B. The N8 Tactical KO-1 SIG P320 Compact Holster features lightweight, Kydex construction and a discreet, slim profile to lessen bulk and the likelihood of printing while maximizing concealability and comfort. Versatility is enhanced further by the ability to wear it in the appendix position or as a standard, strong-side IWB holster. An adjustable design allows for customizable cant, retention, ride height and multiple clip options. It’s also available for 1911, Glock, Ruger, Smith & Wesson and Springfield Armory pistols. MSRP: $34.95; n8tactical.com

C. With a programmable switch offering three output cycles, the Streamlight ProTac 1L-1AA Everyday Carry Flashlight adapts to meet your EDC needs. Set it for high/strobe/low, high only or low/high, depending on the situation at hand. A pocket clip provides a practical means of keeping its 350 lumens within reach. Runtime on its highest setting is 1 hour and 20 minutes MSRP: $71.40; streamlight.com

D. Available in single- and double-stack models, the CrossBreed Accomplice Ambi Mag Carrier has a lot to offer. Simply swapping the belt clip with the optional IWB comfort backer brings welcome versatility to your carry ensemble. A screw on the side provides friction-fit retention for a customizable fit for your spare magazines. MSRP: $31.95; crossbreedholsters.com

E. A blend of form and function, the Kershaw Link Tanto features a 3.25-inch, tanto-style, 420HC blade that combines superior piercing capability with a robust point. Its BlackWash coating safeguards the blade from corrosion while offering aesthetic appeal. The contoured handle fosters a positive grip, while gray anodized-aluminum scales provide lightweight durability. Blade deployment is easy, thanks to an unobtrusive flipper and SpeedSafe assisted opening. MSRP: $69.99; kershaw.kaiusa.com
