Everyday Carry: Carbon Cinema

Nov 13, 2019

Category: Everyday Carry

Carbon fiber is a miracle material if there ever was one. It’s non-metallic but has a tensile strength that’s about five times stronger than steel and twice as stiff — and it manages all that while also being more lightweight. As such, this material has had a revolutionary effect on a number of different industries, including the military-industrial complex, aerospace, automotive manufacturing, and more. And since carbon fiber is so amazing, it has also had a trickle-down effect — inserting itself in places you might not otherwise expect. And that’s what this week’s pocket dump is all about: everyday carry gear that features carbon fiber in its construction. We think this cinematic-minded loadout brilliantly balances beauty, toughness, and versatility.

KeyBar Key Organizer

KeyBar makes some of the best keychain alternatives around. And if you’re a fan of carbon fiber, then you can’t go wrong with this one. Each one comes with a titanium pocket clip, can hold up to 12 keys at a time, and even includes a titanium fob link for your modern car key.

Casio G-Shock Gravitymaster Watch

A proud member of one of the toughest timepiece lineups of all time, this Casio G-Shock Gravitymaster is unique even amongst its brethren thanks to an impressive carbon fiber bezel. Of course, it still has plenty of features you’d expect out of any G-Shock — including Tough Solar power, Multiband 6 atomic timekeeping, a shock-resistant housing, and so much more.

Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

As you might have gathered from its name, the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is a bit more than your average point-and-shoot — offering a sensor that can capture 4k images at up to 60fps. It can also shoot slow-motion footage in full HD at up to 120fps. That and so much more are housed in its unique and carbon fiber-laden case, for lighter weight and plenty of durability.
