Everyday Carry: Apex

Oct 13, 2021

Category: Everyday Carry

Put plainly, human history wouldn’t be human history if it wasn’t for the fact that we, as a species, figured out how to hunt at some point. In fact, our evolution suggests that it was our access to protein-rich foods like animal meat and our inventiveness — especially in regards to building tools and learning to cook our food — that led to our dominance over the rest of the animal kingdom. And while some might decry hunting as an altogether horrific activity, it can be remarkably rewarding and, in the right circumstances, can even be good for the environment (e.g. eliminating invasive species can actually protect certain biomes). Obviously, we’d suggest keeping it above board — only do it when properly licensed, try to use every part of the game you kill, don’t needlessly destroy or trash your hunting grounds, etc. But, if you’re interested in such activities, this everyday carry loadout is for you.

Buck Knives 110 Folding Hunter

While not all folding knives are up to the task of hunting, the Buck Knives 100 Folding Hunter, by contrast, was specifically built for that purpose. It also happens to be one of the most iconic everyday carry knives of all time and should be in everyone’s collection. It benefits from a serviceable 420HC steel clip point blade, an ebony wood handle with brass bolsters, and a sturdy backlock.

Suunto Traverse Alpha Outdoor Smartwatch

While there are plenty of solid outdoor smartwatches, the Suunto Traverse Alpha might be the best around for hunting thanks to its robust suite of sensors and features — which includes things like a shot counter that can actually mark where you fired on GPS and remember it for later. It also has a battery that’s good for up to 14 days, a construction good for extreme temperatures, and so much more.
