Everyday Carry: Silver Lining

May 8, 2019

Category: Everyday Carry

When it comes to adventure, most folks are drawn out most during the sunniest of days — be that in regards to hitting the hiking trails, doing a little city exploration, or otherwise. But we’re here to tell you that, sometimes, colder and cloudier days are often better for a number of reasons. Most obviously, the crowds tend to thin when the sun isn’t out. But, with a dip in the mercury, that also means you don’t have to worry so much about overheating, as the cooler weather will, in turn, help keep you cool. Furthermore, sunlight gets diffused in the clouds — which can mean there is less of a chance of glare and sun blindness. Sure, the sunniest days of the year are still going to be the most desirable, but if you’ve got a solid kit of everyday carry gear, a bit of sunscreen, and an adventurous spirit, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy the silver lining around all of those clouds.

Arc’teryx Veilance Casing Passport Wallet

Crafted from gorgeous Horween leather, the Veilance Casing Passport Wallet does away with one of the biggest downsides of traditional cash and card carriers — fabric stitching — in favor of a sleeker, slimmer laminated construction. Weighing just two ounces as a result, it can still hold up to eight cards, your passport, and bills or loose documents (like your plane tickets or receipts). As beautiful as it is well-built, this is one of the best travel wallets out there.

Chris Reeve Umnumzaan Folding Knife

For most folks in the EDC world, Chris Reeve’s Sebenza is the end-all, be-all of pocket knives. But if you just look a little closer, you’ll see that Reeve has a whole catalog of outstanding blades — including the Zulu-named Umnumzaan. Meaning “The Boss,” this sturdy EDC blade boasts a modified Reeve Integral Lock, a hollow-ground CPM S35VN blade, and a stylistically-crosshatched titanium handle. If you want the same quality found in a Sebenza, but with a bit more individuality, you can’t go wrong here.
