Reinventing Key Carry with the Key Loop

Say goodbye to bulky and cumbersome keychains. The Wingback Key Loop reimagines key carry with its minimalist design and premium materials. 

By replacing the traditional split keyring with ultra-high molecular weight cord, this innovative accessory allows your keys to sit flatter and more comfortably in your pocket. 

Crafted from materials 15 times stronger than steel by weight, the Wingback Key Loop ensures durability and longevity without sacrificing style.

Unrivaled Strength and Performance

The use of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWP) in the construction of the Wingback Key Loop offers unparalleled mechanical performance

This advanced material boasts exceptional tensile strength, durability, abrasion resistance, cut resistance, and energy absorption. 

Whether you're navigating the urban jungle or exploring the great outdoors, rest assured that your key loop is securely held by a cord designed to withstand the rigors of daily use.

Precision Engineering and Ergonomic Design

Attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the Wingback Key Loop's design. 

A diamond-cut knurl around the machined parts provides ample grip, ensuring ease of use even in adverse conditions. 

Each component of the key loop is meticulously crafted from aerospace-grade brass CZ121, CNC machined in Birmingham, UK. 

Brass components also present an opportunity for the Wingback key loop to age beautifully, donning a patina that will change with you over a lifetime of use.

The result is a keychain that not only looks sophisticated but also feels robust and reliable in hand.

Craftsmanship and Sustainability

The Wingback Key Loop is not just a functional accessory but also a testament to ethical manufacturing practices. 

Laser engraved, assembled by hand, and packaged in London, UK, each key loop reflects a commitment to quality and environmental responsibility. 

With a double thickness cotton sleeve sourced from Oeko-Tex certified suppliers in Poland, Europe, Wingback ensures that style and sustainability go hand in hand with the key loop.

Seamless Integration with Key Cache

Versatility is key when it comes to EDC gear, and the Wingback Key Loop delivers in spades. 

Compatible with Wingback's machined Key Cache, this accessory offers seamless integration with other components of your everyday carry ensemble. 

Whether used alone or in conjunction with the Key Cache, the Wingback Key Loop enables quick and convenient access to your essential keys, work pass, car keys, and other accessories. 

Say goodbye to fumbling through a cluttered keychain—organization and efficiency are now at your fingertips.

The Key Loop and Key Cache are both available in brass and steel.
