Duoket

Conceived by Mininch — the guys who came up with the Tool Pen, Tool Pen Mini, and Wrenchit — Duoket this time isn’t a tool but is equally ingenious. Duoket is both a jacket and bag, switching between the two at a whim with nothing but a zip/unzip and making it easier to tackle chilly morning commutes without having to deal with carrying your jacket by hand in the evening. The jacket’s multitude of interior zippered pockets become the bag’s inner compartments so that everything stays right where it should be without having to reorganize ever time it transforms. As a bag it’s got both grab handles and a removable shoulder strap and as a jacket it’s got a concealed hood to shield you against rain and both adjustable cuffs and hem to tailor the fit. Available in five colors and several sizes.

WRENCHit

In the same way that their Tool Pens cycle through bits, Mininch’s WRENCHit cycles through interchangeable wrenches. The slim tool is made up of a SUS 420 stainless steel sleeve that holds up to five wrenches, each made of the same metal and engraved with their size and spec. To cycle through, pull out the bit in the tail end and push it smoothly into the front, in turn pushing the other four bits down a little. The ten available bits cover 15 functions, with one dedicated bottle opening bit as well as two allen wrench-equipped ones that also sport five spoke wrenches between them. Each also includes a pouch to stash and carry the tool along with all your extra bits.

Mininch Tool Pen Mini

Hot on the heels of the Tool Pen comes the Mininch Tool Pen Mini, a brand new screwdriver that doesn’t simply use the same bits as the original. The aluminum Tool Pen Mini employs a similar Pop-A-Point design that lets you’d select bits like the push-up pencils of old, exposing their sizes and shapes through windows while cycling through. The 21 bits offered are of the smaller varieties used in eyeglasses, compact electronics, and the like, crafted with long slender tips for better reach. Fill the pen with 5 bits, affix the magnetic cap, then clip it to your pocket until called upon.

Mininch Tool Pen

Never leave home without a set of screwdrivers? Whatever your reason, Mininch’s versatile Tool Pen might be worth a gander. Made of 6061 aluminum, the Tool Pen works like those push-up pencils of yesteryear, carrying 6 bits — one exposed and five within the pen body — that are sequentially accessed by pulling out the first and pushing it into the back. Each Tool Pen comes with a magnetic cap, 13 bits including a hex set in Imperial or Metric, and can be customized to your precise needs. Oh, and each bit has a marking icon on its side that shows through a window on the pen’s body, eliminating the need for any guessing when trying to finding the right bit.
