Everyday Carry: Blackout

Jan 26, 2017

Category: Everyday Carry

You would think with so many folks saying that every other new trend is “the new black”, eventually the color would fall out of fashion. The reason it hasn’t is because black isn’t fashionable – it just is. It’s indelible, and indelible is exactly what you want to go for when it comes to your daily essentials. Now it’s no secret that we’re huge fans of blacked-out EDC gear around these parts, so we figured we’d share some of our favorite stealthy pocket pieces on the market. Whether you use them for inspiration or as a cue to pick up a few new items to add to your own setup, this collection shows off some of the best murdered out knives, watches, wallets and multi-tools available. Because all black everything never goes out of style.
