The EDC Tool Roll: Triple Seven Gear Micro Kit

The EDC Tool Roll is a feature on Jerking the Trigger in which we profile various every day carry worthy tools. The tools shown aren’t multi-tools but rather real tools, that by virtue of their compact size, light weight, usefulness, or unique functionality, can find a place in any range kit, emergency kit, or every day carry bag.

Feel free to comment on the tools that you carry so we can all learn! The discussion on these posts has been very valuable so far.


We’ve spent time talking about some tools. It’s about time we started talking about the tool roll.

I use a Micro Kit from Triple Seven Gear as my EDC Tool Roll. I’ve used Triple Seven Gear products going all the way back to their original Mini Kit Mk-7 and own at least one of everything they make (and several of a few products).

The Micro Kit is ideal for me because the size is just right – small enough to carry but big enough to fit what I need. It is compact enough to fit in a coat pocket, back pocket of jeans, or even some front pockets. It does not require a large cargo pocket to be carried. In spite of that compact size, the Micro Kit can pack and organize a lot of tools.

It folds to about 4″ x 6″ when closed and can be secured with a simple elastic loop. I like that there are no zippers or hook and loop to limit how I stuff the pouch. When open, it lays completely flat and gives good visibility to the tools contained inside. I can even turn it “inside-out” so that it fits in my pocket but still offers access to the tools.

The elastic loops can fit a variety of tools and anything that does fit well in the loops can be stashed in one of the pockets. The clear vinyl window is particularly useful for stashing small items that you want to be able to see.

You can check out the Micro Kit (or Mini Kit Mk-7 if you need a larger version) at Triple Seven Gear.

The EDC Tool Roll: Replaceable Fix It Sticks

The EDC Tool Roll is a feature on Jerking the Trigger in which we profile various every day carry worthy tools. The tools shown aren’t multi-tools but rather real tools, that by virtue of their compact size, light weight, usefulness, or unique functionality, can find a place in any range kit, emergency kit, or every day carry bag.

The genesis of this series, The EDC Tool Roll, was my frustration at my multi-tools for never quite being the right tool. Sure, they will do a lot, but sometimes you just need a real tool which started my quest to build a pocketable tool kit. My search for a screw driver that was both a real tool and yet still compact enough to work in this pocketable kit lead me to Fix It Sticks.

The Replaceable Fix It Sticks are comprised of two separate sections that can be used individually as a small driver for tight spaces or together to form a t-handle driver. Each of the two sections can hold a standard 1/4″ bit at each end meaning I can keep 4 bits of my choosing on the tool, ready to use. I also carry a small assortment of bits for the fasteners that I am likely to encounter.

I tried several other drivers before settling on the Fix It Sticks. Most interchangable bit drivers were too large. Others were pocketable but lacked reach or were too small to apply a decent amount of torque comfortably. The Fix It Sticks, with their take-down format split that difference beautifully. They pack small but function much like a full size tool.

Fix It Sticks are made in the USA and available in a number of configurations. I like the Replacables for EDC and purchased mine from Amazon.

They also makes these in kit form specifically for shooters with slick options like in-line torque limiters. Those kits are available at Tactical Works.

Of all the tools I added to my kit, the screwdriver was the hardest to finally settle on so I will be interested to hear what you carry. If you have an EDC worth driver that you prefer, comment below.
