Everyday Carry: Contrast

Feb 2, 2017

Category: Everyday Carry

Life doesn’t exist in black and white. And that means that your everyday carry gear doesn’t have to, either. Thankfully, we live in a world where there are plenty of options. Sure, you could curate the most perfect all-black EDC, but even that will seem a bit drab at times. So, why not add a splash of color? It can be as simple as picking one vibrant item that stands out from the rest. Or you can go all in, drenching your carry in every hue on the color wheel. You can match it to your car or show support for your favorite team. The possibilities are nearly endless. In any case, this week’s everyday carry roundup was designed to help get you thinking a little bit outside of the box.

Opinel No. 8 Trekking Knife

Simple yet effective, Opinel’s knives have remained largely unchanged for the better part of a century. This one features a 12C27 Sandvik stainless steel blade, a beechwood handle, the brand’s proprietary Virobloc safety ring lock, and a leather lanyard.

Purchase: $18

Keysmart Compact Key Holder

Since jingly keys can often seem like nails on a chalkboard, we’re thankful for the existence of this aircraft-grade aluminum ket organizer. It’s compact, easy to use, and can hold up to 8 normal sized keys.

Purchase: $20

Foursevens Preon P1

With a range of 5 to 100 lumens across 5 reconfigurable illumination modes and an aircraft-grade aluminum body, this single AAA battery powered flashlight is a reliable and handy addition to any carry loadout.

Purchase: $40

Trove Wallet

Much more compact than your average bifold, this surprisingly capacious wallet – which is made from vegetable tanned Italian bonded leather and elastic – has an up to 10 card capacity. And it’s reversible for alternative storage and style options.

Purchase: $43

Tsovet SVT-CN38 Watch

Powered by a reliable Swiss movement, this handsome watch, which is equally appropriate for casual and formal occasions, features a 316L stainless steel 38mm case – with an easy to read blue and white dial – and a beautiful stitched leather band.

Purchase: $200
