While many folks are familiar with the Channel Islands — visible off the coasts of Southern California — there’s another collection of small land masses approximately 30 miles beyond the Golden Gate Bridge, just barely visible even on the clearest of days. Unlike its SoCal siblings, these islands (which happen to be a protected wildlife refuge) are far craggier and much less welcoming to all but a brave few — namely researchers from Point Blue Conservation Science and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, alongside the intrepid local wildlife. Referred to as the Devil’s Teeth by mariners for their jagged appearance, The Farallon Islands have a long tumultuous history that includes exploitation by seal hunters and fur traders, use as a nuclear waste dump, numerous shipwrecks, and so much more. And now they’ve inspired this week’s seaworthy and stalwart everyday carry loadout.

Zodiac x Huckberry Super Sea Wolf ‘Farallon’ Dive Watch

Inspired directly by the Farallon Islands, this Super Sea Wolf dive watch is the first-ever collaboration between Huckberry and Zodiac — and it is marked by a deep blue dial inspired directly by the way sunlight pierces the depths of the ocean. Other noteworthy aspects include the Signal Yellow detailing found on the dial, minute hand, and rotating dive timer bezel; a caseback with the islands’ coordinates; and a reliable automatic movement. However, if you’re hoping to wrap this beauty around your wrist, you’ll want to act quickly because only 82 examples are to be offered… and they’re not going to last long.

Pioneer Carry Flyfold 10XD Ripstop Bifold Wallet

Made from a synthetic fabric that’s soft to the touch but a whopping ten times stronger than steel by weight, this practically-indestructible bifold wallet is also waterproof, machine-washable, and will mold to your carry style over time. It even offers up RFID-blocking technology, it can hold up to 10 cards, and it boasts a large main compartment for cash.

Purchase: $85

Spyderco Caribbean Salt Folding Knife

While this knife is unmistakably a product of Spyderco — made apparent by the brand’s oversized signature thumb hole — it does stand out from its brethren for a couple of significant reasons. First, it boasts a stand-out black-and-yellow G-10 handle that’s grippy in any conditions. Second, it’s equipped with an LC200N steel sheepsfoot blade which is exceptionally corrosion-resistant, even when up against seawater — making this the perfect companion for any oceanic adventure.

Purchase: $189
