Everyday Carry: Go Time

Apr 25, 2018

Category: Everyday Carry

Life can go by pretty fast nowadays, and sometimes your everyday carry gear needs to reflect that. We don’t always have the time to carefully consider which loadout we want to haul around for the day. Often, all you can do is grab enough to get you by and be on your way – though that doesn’t mean you should have to sacrifice on quality or functionality. This week’s pocket dump has been put together specifically to illustrate that a small and basic collection of pocketable EDC gear can still keep your bases covered from sunup to sundown, so long as you do yourself a favor and get worthwhile gear in the first place. Careful consideration with your everyday carry purchases can ensure that even a grab-and-go set of gear can keep your prepared for anything.

Fenix LD15R Right-Angled Flashlight

This 500-lumen LED micro-USB rechargeable EDC flashlight from Fenix gets two things very right. First, the right-angle of the emitter makes it ideal for hands-free directional lighting, so you can work with two hands while still illuminating your workspace. Second, it features a magnetic tail cap, so you can attach it to vertical metal surfaces for a lot more versatility than other similar EDC flashlights.

Purchase: $55

Benchmade Griptilian 553 Folding Knife

Benchmade builds some of the absolute best pocket knives in the world – and this Mel Pardue-designed one might very well be the greatest they’ve ever made.

In fact, it even comes with Benchmade’s lifetime warranty, in case you needed greater assurance.
