Everyday Carry: American Mastery

Jul 3, 2018

Category: Everyday Carry

Tomorrow, the United States will celebrate its 242nd birthday. And, if you ask us, that’s a pretty damn good reason to celebrate. But showing our patriotism isn’t something we do just once every year – it’s a daily endeavor. One of the big ways we like to show our appreciation for this great country and all the people that live here with us is by loading our pockets with some American-made everyday carry gear. U.S. craftsmen are some of the best in the world and it’s an honor to help support them in any way, big or small. And that’s why we put together this week’s pocket dump with a complement of pocket gear made right here in these United States of America. Happy Independence Day!

Defy Bags Key Chain

Keychains are a simple convenience, but are easy to get wrong. Luckily, that’s not the case with the USA-made Defy Bags Key Chain. This bad boy features Horween top-grain leather, a mil-spec rifle clip, and solid metal hardware.

Purchase: $29

Rogue Industries Front Pocket Bison Wallet

Whereas most other bifold and even minimalist wallets conform to the shape of your credit cards, this one was designed to fit into your pants pocket, making it a lot better looking than an awkward bulging rectangle. It’s also made in the USA from bison leather, holds up to 12 cards and cash, and has RFID-blocking tech built right into it.

Purchase: $55

Gerber Gator Folding Knife

While this knife’s handle might looks like leather, it’s actually a rubberized Gator Grip around glass-filled nylon. And it’s mated to a super high-quality CPM-S30V stainless steel. And if that’s not enough to get you excited, it also comes with a premium leather sheath and was made here in the USA.

Purchase: $76+

Weiss American Issue Field Watch

Most “American-made” watches feature a Swiss or Japanese movement. Not this one from Weiss, however. It’s got a movement the brand machines in their Los Angeles warehouse. And while that’s plenty to be exited about, it’s also a gorgeous take on a field watch and comes with a stunning and durable ballistic nylon strap.

Purchase: $1,950
