You don’t need a thousand individually purposed pieces of gear crowding your pockets to get you through your normal day-to-day. Not only can it be difficult to keep track of everything, but you’re likely not going to use half of it most of the time. And that’s a big part of everyday carry: figuring out on the basest level what you definitely need and getting rid of everything you don’t. Sure, if you’re headed up to a mountaintop lookout that’s 3 days travel on foot, you’re going to want to gear up appropriately with a hiking pack full of survival gear. But, you’re not going to need the same stuff to get you to and from your place of work (unless you’re a Forest Ranger). Lighten your load and trim the fat with a complement of EDC gear like the stuff we’ve put together for this week’s pocket dump, because – chances are – it’s everything you really need and more.
Arktype RMK Quick Release Magnetic Keychain
Built in the USA with a military-grade rifle clip, handwoven type 3 550 paracord, and a slim profile neodymium magnet quick release clasp, this carabiner-style keychain is probably both the most secure and convenient fast access keyring accessory ever to be made. At the very least, it’s one of the coolest.
Dango T01 Tactical Multi-Tool Wallet
Built to be the ultimate wallet for the outdoorsman, Dango’s Tactical T01 men’s wallet is made from a combination of high quality leather, 6061 aerospace-grade aluminum, high carbon stainless steel, and a silicon cash strap. And while the Dango Wallet can carry up to 12 cards and a wad of cash, it also comes with a 14-function multi-tool insert to help you out in a pinch whether you need to tighten some screws, open some bottles, or cut some rope.
The James Brand County Knife
You can think of the County knife, from James Brand, like an elevated version of those Boy Scout pocket folders you had as a kid. It is a simple and small slip joint, but elegantly crafted from high quality materials like Sandvik steel, ebony wood, and 416 stainless steel. And, weighing just 1.9 ounces and measuring up at a total of 6″ in length when opened, it’s hardly an imposition to add this beautiful pocket knife to your EDC.
Tsovet SVT-RM40 Watch
Just because something is simple, that doesn’t mean it has to lack functionality. Take, for instance, the Tsovet SVT-RM40 wristwatch. Housed inside of a 316L stainless steel case and under a hardened mineral crystal, the three PVD silver hands of this timepiece (which are driven by a reliable Ronda 505 movement) glide over a face that features large hour markings, a sub-minute dial, and a date window at the 6 o’clock position. It’s also attached to a simple stitched leather band and has a water resistance of up to 100 meters.
