While some individuals maintain the same everyday carry loadout year-round, others opt for a rotating kit tailored to specific seasons and uses such as camping, traveling, or spending a day on the water. And it’s this latter application that we’ve geared this week’s spread towards, with a handpicked array of coastal-focused everyday carry items. Whether for beach days or afternoons out on the lake, this “Silver Surfer” spread is sure to have you covered in any coastal or nautical scenarios.
Spyderco UK Pen Knife
Though it was originally designed to adhere to the United Kingdom’s stringent carrying laws, the Spyderco UK Pen Knife has gained a following the world over. Offering solid performance in a compact and affordably priced package, the UK Pen Knife is made in America and features a 4.06” textured fiberglass reinforced nylon handle mated to a 2.94” flat-ground drop point blade composed of Carpenter’s American-made CTS BD1 steel. Deployed using Spyderco’s signature thumb hole opener, the UK Pen Knife also boasts a tension wire tip-up pocket clip that’s both removable and reversible. What’s more, Spyderco also produces this knife in a variety of handle colors and blade shapes.
Pelican G5 Personal Utility RF Field Wallet
The Pelican G5 Personal Utility RF Field Wallet takes the absolutely bulletproof construction of the brand’s crushproof cases and applies it to a modern field wallet. Equipped with RFID blocking, the wallet features an aluminum shell with stainless steel hinge pins, a folding locking mechanism, and a gasketed o-ring seal system that collectively afford the G5 full waterproofing. Inside, this waterproof wallet has been outfitted with an interior elastomeric strap and a mesh organizer, while the exterior has been supplemented with a rear rubber strap and a removable carrying loop.
Garrett Leight Kinney Sun Glasses
A top-shelf take on a standard pair of wayfarer-style sunglasses, the Garrett Leight Kinney Sun is crafted around a cured cellulose acetate frame backed by an internal stainless steel core wire. Available in ten additional color options, these sunglasses — which are one of GL’s all-time best-selling models — sport a keyhole bridge, five-barrel hinges equipped with genuine metal rivets, and semi-flat mineral glass lenses with both UV protection and an AR coating. Lastly, the Kinney Sun sunglasses are also sold with a standard GLCO carrying case.
Zodiac Super Sea Wolf 53 Compression Automatic Watch
Drawing inspiration from the brand’s 1970s-era dive watches, the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf 53 is an automatic compression watch that’s pieced together around a 40mm stainless steel case with a 120-click rotating bezel and a matching stainless steel bracelet. The dial of the watch boasts applied indices and C3 SuperLuminova lume — all under a double-domed sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating. At the heart of this modern dive watch — which is water resistant down to 656’ — is a Swiss-made STP 3-13 caliber automatic movement with 26 jewels, 28,800bph, and a 44-hour power reserve.
