Everyday Carry: Red Sky

Feb 10, 2021

Category: Everyday Carry

Roughly 70% of the planet Earth is covered in water, most of which is vast oceans. And despite the fact we humans like to think of ourselves as intrepid adventurers, we’ve only scratched the surface of ocean exploration. In fact, over 80% of the ocean has yet to be discovered. That means, when you boil it all down, that we really know very little about the vast majority of this pale blue dot that we call home. For some, that might sound cripplingly hopeless, especially considering that humankind, as we know it, has been exploring the surface of our planet for something like 200,000 years. To us, however, it speaks to the vastness of possibilities and all that has yet to be observed, documented, cataloged, etc. While this week’s everyday carry pocket dump isn’t going to turn you into the next Jacques Costeau, it could certainly survive a measure of ocean-going — both above and below the waves — should the mood strike you and you take a dive.

Peak LED Solutions El Capitan Flashlight

Despite what you may think, finding a really high-quality everyday carry flashlight that was built in the USA can be a difficult task. That is, unless you know where to look — like Peak LED Solutions’ exceptional catalog. Take, for instance, the El Capitan you see here with its solid brass construction, polycarbonate window, compatibility with multiple battery chemistries, and built-in waterproofing.

Purchase: $80

The James Brand Pike Knife

Done-up in an exclusive colorway available only through Huckberry, this version of The James Brand’s exceptional USA-made Pike knife is even more desirable than its top-notch brethren. Along with its slipjoint mechanism, Sandvik 12C27 steel wharncliffe blade, and 5.7″ total weight, this one also boasts a gorgeous rosewood inlay on its brass handle. However, if this knife speaks to you, you’ll want to pick one up ASAP — only 300 will ever be made.

Purchase: $120

Persol PO3217S Sunglasses

Truly, you can never really go wrong with a pair of classic Persol sunglasses. Take, for instance, this pair of PO3217S shades you see here. Revived from the brand’s archives, these glasses are marked by their tortoiseshell acetate frames, a distinct trio of polarized lenses, and an unmistakeably classic silhouette. If you’re interested in a pair of aviators that stand apart from the crowded gallery, go no further.

Purchase: $184

Rado Captain Cook Bronze Dive Watch

Originally released all the way back in 1962, Rado’s Captain Cook Bronze Dive Watch has been revived for the modern era and is better than ever before. That includes classic details and features including a handsome red-and-gold colorway, a comfortable and durable NATO strap (now made from modern synthetic materials), and waterproofing good for depths up to 300m. It also now boasts an automatic movement with an impressive 80-hour power reserve.

Purchase: $2,600
