Everyday Carry: Floral Notes

It’s starting to look a lot like spring is finally upon us. And, after such a long and strange winter, we’re happy to see the sun come back out again. That also means we’re getting ready to shift our style away from the grayscale of winter and back into the realm of color. That also means giving our everyday carry gear a bit of a refresher. And we’re not just talking hues and shades, either. Natural construction materials, like wood and leather, are the perfect additions to your EDC if you’re looking to inject your gear with a little life. Just make sure you get your hands on gear worth having, like the items we’ve featured in this week’s everyday carry roundup, and you’ll see that, while plenty good-looking, natural materials can also be reliable, durable, and long-lasting.
