To put it bluntly, the last couple of years have been extremely bad for people that enjoy travel. But, it’s finally starting to look like we’re going back to some semblance of the way things were before. And that means, for many of us, it’s time to start planning that next big trip. That also means it’s high time we updated our gear, ranging from our checked luggage to the everyday carry gear we’ll have in our pockets when we inevitably head toward that security checkpoint at any given airport. If that sounds like something you, too, are interested in, you’ll definitely want to check out this week’s EDC pocket dump, which was put together specifically with gear that’s travel-ready and, more importantly, TSA-friendly. Pop this gear on your person and you’ll be better equipped for your next jaunt to, well, anywhere in the world you can go.
Bellroy Apex Passport Cover
Perfect for international travel, Bellroy’s Apex Passport Cover is sized perfectly to hold — you guessed it! — your passport, alongside all the cash and cards you might need on your travels. Better still, it includes a micro travel pen for all the forms, receipts, etc. you need to fill out. And it has a secure magnetic closure and RFID-blocking tech to keep your identity protected no matter where you go.
Randolph Engineering Aviator Sunglasses
Made in the USA (as is all of Randolph’s catalog), these take the classic Aviator and kicks it into high gear with a chrome frame, anti-reflective UVA/UVB-blocking lenses, comfortable bayonet temples designed to be compatible with headgear (or a hat), and they’re guaranteed for life. When it comes to classic sunglasses, you can’t go wrong here.
Master & Dynamic MW65 Active Noise-Cancelling Wireless Headphones
More comfortable over long periods than earbuds and boasting superb active noise-canceling technology, Master & Dynamic’s MW65 over-ear wireless headphones are ideal for travel. It helps, too, that they’re built from outstanding materials, offer superior sound quality from over-engineered components, and they look great enough that you might never want to put them away. And you won’t really have to with their 25-hour battery life and built-in microphones for calling.
Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT Watch
For the first time ever, Bell & Ross has added a dual time zone function to its outstanding 05 range of watches in the GMT you see before you. That means, for frequent travelers, you can keep track of the time in two places at once (or more, so long as you travel longitudinally within those timezones). It also has a reliable in-house automatic movement, a manageable 41mm case size, an integrated bracelet, and so much more.
