Everyday Carry: Expedition

Sep 6, 2017

Category: Everyday Carry

Whenever you’re headed out on an off-the-grid adventure, it’s a pretty good idea to have a grasp of what the weather is going to be like. Unfortunately, however, it’s extremely difficult to predict a bad turn – so it’s better to be prepared for the worst and hope for the best. One excellent way to keep yourself one step ahead of mother nature is by bringing with you a set of tools that will function even at the worst of times. Luckily, there are a number of everyday carry brands out there that make the best of the best gear for just such situations. We’ve put some of it together in this week’s pocket dump. Whether you’re headed to the arctic or just roughing a bad storm, this gear will help you make it through.

Field Notes Expedition Pocket Notebook

Specifically designed to weather the worst of conditions – and even sent to the South Pole to test their durability – these Field Notes pocket notebooks feature 48 waterproof, tear-, and extreme temperature-resistant pages. And, like every other Field Notes offering, these writing pads are made right here in the USA.

Purchase: $13

Fisher Space Pen Bullet

Capable of writing underwater, upside-down, or in zero gravity, the Fisher Space Pen is one of the most versatile everyday carry pens in the world. They’re also built and hand-tested right here in the USA and come in a number of different finishes and colors, so you can pick whichever suits you best.

Opinel No. 8 Outdoor Survival Pocket Knife

An everyday carry knife is a wonderful tool in a pinch, but one that offers shock and humidity resistance, has a built-in shackle key, and features a 110 decibel emergency whistle is even better. And that’s exactly what you’ll find in Opinel’s No. 8 Outdoor Survival Pocket Knife.
