Everyday Carry: Guardian

Oct 12, 2017

Category: Everyday Carry

The twists and turns of life can be very unexpected at times. And while we’d never wish for anyone to be caught in an emergency, self-defense, or survival situation, we also know better than to think it impossible – especially with the recurrence of increasingly dangerous natural disasters and the questionable geo-political climate. There are, however, some little things an individual can do to prepare themselves for the worst of times – like carry around a comprehensive complement of everyday carry gear. Take, for instance, this week’s pocket dump. These rough and ready items are of the kind of quality and effectiveness that would certainly give you a leg-up in a pinch, be that during a disaster scenario or otherwise. Carry this kind of gear in your pockets and you just might be ready to tackle anything.

Olight M1X Striker Flashlight

Constructed from super tough aircraft grade anodized aluminum, this self-defense focused flashlight features a toothed striker bezel, an output of between 0.5-1,000 lumens, and has a maximum runtime of up to 360 hours with power pulled from either two CR123A/RCA123A or one 18650 batteries.

Purchase: $60

Dango D01 Tactical Multi-Tool Wallet

With a chassis built from 6061 aerospace-grade anodized aluminum and black leather, this tactical wallet features a stainless steel multi-tool insert, giving it 14+ built-in tool functions – including hex wrenches, a bottle opener, a serrated saw edge, a ruler, and more. The Dango Wallet can also hold up to 12 cards and a handful of cash.

Leatherman Wave Multi-Tool

Leatherman’s all-time most popular multi-tool, the stainless steel Wave features more than 17 built-in tool functions from multiple pliers, to a series of blades (both normal edge and serrated), to a wide variety of other useful attachments. This one also comes in a handsome black oxide finish, includes a nylon sheath, and comes with the brand’s 25-year guarantee.

Purchase: $90

If you’re in the market for an incredibly high quality titanium flipper EDC pocket knife with a bit of an aggressively styled edge, you’re not going to do better than the harpoon-tipped ZT0095BW.
