Everyday Carry: Rambler

Jun 5, 2017

Category: Everyday Carry

Whether you are heading out for a long overnight hike or a short walk through the backwoods – time spent in the wilderness is always that much better when you have the right gear on hand. Being well equipped means that after getting your head clear on your hike out, you can jot down all of your thoughts with a pen and paper. It also means that you can keep yourself safe with a small survival kit or fixed blade knife should the unexpected transpire.

As some readers may have been able to infer, we love getting out onto the trails as much as we can; and this pocket dump is a combination of things we personally wouldn’t head out of the door without. From making sure you can find your true north to keeping an eye on the time, these pieces are perfect for the rambler in all of us.

Key Ring Compass

Key Ring Compass

Benchmade Bushcrafter

Not a whole lot of folks carry a fixed blade around town, but if you are heading out into the woods, this S30V stainless steel blade from Benchmade isn’t a bad addition to your setup. With a 4.43-inch long drop point blade connected to a contoured G10 handle, you’ll be ready for anything.
