Springtime is fast approaching, which also means it’s nearly the start of the season for America’s pastime, and we couldn’t be more excited. When it comes to fairweather sports, nothing beats heading out to the diamond, grabbing a cold beer and some snacks, and watching your favorite team play through 9+ innings. And since we’re looking forward to the experience, we thought we’d put together an everyday carry loadout inspired by one of the USA’s oldest native sports. Whether you’re a hardcore stat-checking obsessive or just a casual Cracker Jack-craving fan, this pocket-ready gear will not let you down.
Defy Key Chain
We grew tired of carrying our keys in a clump in our pockets about as soon as we started carrying keys. That’s why we love keychains and keychain carabiners that can attach to our belt loops, like the Defy Key Chain. Made from a combination of Horween high-grade leather and a military-grade gun clip, this USA-made keychain is perfect for keeping your keys handy and securely out of your pockets.
Rawlings Baseball Stitch Wallet
If you recognize Rawlings for their brand name, there’s a pretty good chance you played baseball at some point in your life, as that’s what they make: baseball gear. But they’ve also translated that sports aesthetic into some surprising everyday carry gear, like this minimalist front pocket wallet. Featuring baseball-style stitching, this wallet can hold up to six cards, has an exterior made from cowhide leather, and a nylon liner.
Gerber Fastball Flipper Knife
Gerber is fairly well known for making tactical-focused folding knives, but they’ve been making a lot of moves to cater some of their newer releases toward the everyday carry crowd. Their new Fastball knife certainly fits into that category, with its B.O.S.S. Tech ultra-smooth manual flipper opening, aircraft-grade aluminum handle, S30V steel utility-focused Wharncliffe blade, and one hand-operable liner lock. And it definitely doesn’t hurt that it’s made in the USA.
Suunto Spartan Sport Smartwatch
Made to survive the rigors of triathlons and offer up some superb training-focused technology along the way, Suunto’s Spartan Sport smartwatch is a titan of wearable fitness accessories. With a battery that lasts up to 12 hours in training mode, 100 meters of water resistance, GPS navigation, and built-in training modes for over 80 different sports, this stainless steel and mineral crystal wristwatch is like a high-end personal trainer you can wear.
