Everyday Carry: Heritage

A lot of the time, we find ourselves thinking of our everyday carry gear in very base terms. It’s a set of tools made to help make our lives easier. But, every so often, we like to pay a little closer attention to the story behind the gear. Sometimes, we find that the heritage behind our carry allows us to understand and appreciate that which we are hauling to a greater degree. EDC gear isn’t just the sum of its parts — it’s a culmination of the materials, the makers and their stories, and so much more. It’s with this in mind that we put together this week’s pocket dump. Perfectly functional and incredibly beautiful on its own, each of these pieces also has a rich history that’s worth learning, remembering, and passing on.

Oris Divers Sixty-Five Chronograph Watch

Based on the very first diver’s watch that Oris produced back in 1965, the Divers Sixty-Five is an exercise in timekeeping magnificence and functions as a fitting, stylish tribute to the brand’s roots. Of course — while its retro-styled stainless steel case, bronze bezel edge, and rose-gold plated dial details are gorgeous — the watch is also a fully-functional dive watch, boasting a reliable Swiss-made movement and 100m water resistance.

Purchase: $4,000

Case Trapper Folding Knife

Case has been making gorgeous and functional folding knives in the USA for more than a century. And their Trapper is one of their most iconic pocket blades ever produced. This one features the same signature dual blades — made from Tru-Sharp surgical steel — alongside a beautiful bone handle. And, like everything this American heritage brand makes, it comes with a lifetime warranty.

Purchase: $50

Red Wing Heritage Card Holder Wallet

If you’re a fan of men’s style, you’re probably already aware of Red Wing for their superb boots. But you might not know that they also offer a full suite of accessories — including this front pocket card holder wallet. Crafted in the USA from top-grain leather, this minimalist cash & card hauler boasts four card slots and a central pouch for a wad of bills.

Purchase: $75

Scout Leather Co. Hex Bit Driver

Not everyone needs to have a screwdriver with interchangeable bits on hand. But if you’re a DIY enthusiast who likes being ready for anything or a bike commuter who needs the option to make repairs on-the-go, it can be an indispensable tool. This USA-made option from Scout Leather Co. is small enough to slip into even the most crowded of pockets. And it comes with a full set of interchangeable bits for all your driving needs.

Purchase: $80
