Enrique began designing and making electric torches in 2006 because he personally wanted a better flashlight. From there, one thing led to another, and he's been pulled into other EDC gear since, opting for a more refined carry style. When asked about his hobbies, he tells us that free time isn't in large supply these days as he's generally working on something, but he manages to sneak in a few rounds of Starcraft II and likes to keep up with technology.
Favorite EDC Tool:
As for his favorite gear, Enrique proudly highlighted his own creation, Aeon Mk. III. He tells us that the Aeon Mk. III is the culmination of 10 years of designing electric torches and his best work thus far.
Aside from his own, Enrique says that there isn't a single piece of gear that he would call his favorite as each gear serves a different purpose and need. However, the ones highlighted in this feature are his favorites in their respective categories.
