James° + AETHER EDC Kit
James° + AETHER EDC Kit
Everyday essentials for adventure.
We teamed up with our friends at AETHER to design the ultimate everyday-carry kit for adventure. The collaboration features limited-editions of our Ellis pocket knife and Benton pen, and a co-branded Moleskine® journal. It's all kitted together in a water-resistant zippered pouch. Designed to be easily packable, this kit will keep all of your essentials at hand during the most rugged of adventures.
Nice quality items that will collect dust on my desk
I'm not sure why I bought this as I'm not the type of person to use it but for some reason I did and I've reviewed every other product I've bought from James so I should probably review this too. First off as usual everything is great quality as to be expected, this is the 5th? item I've ordered so far and I'm not let down by the quality yet. The case has a very stiff zipper that is getting easier the more I open it to look at the stuff inside before I zip it shut to let sit on my desk some more. The pen writes fantastically but like the free one I got with the order it's a little thin for me personally and when you click it you can hear the metal rubbing together inside. The notepad is quality as well, I would have prefered lines on the paper but I still probably wouldn't use it so it's not a big deal really. The Ellis, just like the other blades I've bought, is nice and sharp and opens/closes easily. The phillips is useable on most screws but it did fail me on a #2 phillips that was holding in my taillight on my Jeep when the brake light went out. The Benton has a really nice lanyard that's been dipped in something at the end to make it look nicer and not unravel. The Ellis has a lanyard that appears to be a piece of shoelace and honestly just makes it look really cheap. My kit showed up and the Ellis had come loose and was damaged slightly on one of the scales. Not a big deal because stuff like that always happens to me so I'm used to it at this point in my life. The case…
Really happy with this purchase. Love each item in it. Ive already used each item more than 2x since opening. The organizer also holds, depending on the day my, airpods and or kindle paper white comfortably along with everything else already included. Worth the buy IMO.
Love this Kit
The kit overall is a great product! I appreciate the quality bag with useful storage components built into it. Generally bags lack quality in their build or useful storage components but this bag as both. The knife is solid and feels heavy in your hand. The pen has a great grip at the bottom that feels good when you're writing. Overall the kid has a very aesthetic appeal to it. It tends to be difficult to find products that are thoughtfully made, built for quality, and still aesthetically pleasing. TJB appears to be in this niche and I appreciate their products.
The james knives are great! Well made, high quality products that look and function extremely well.
Utilitarian EDC Excellence
This exquisite EDC kit is extremely well-appointed. The sheepshead blade and the diamond grip on the Ellis knife were reason enough for me to purchase the kit. Add in the matte limited edition Benton pen, laminated TPU case, and the understated Moleskin notebook; you simply can not go wrong. I'm especially impressed with the weatherproof zippers and the embossed lettering on the front. Perfect collaboration with AETHER.
