One of the hands-down best things about the world of everyday carry is that so many brilliant designers in the space are constantly working toward making better, sleeker, more purpose-driven items. And that goes for every variety of gear from keychains, to multitools, to wallets, and so on. Plus, there’s the added bonus of friendly competition between makers – most of whom draw from the passion of one another and spend it bettering themselves and their own personal designs. The biggest benefit, however, is offered to the consumers who get to enjoy all of this incredibly well-made gear once it comes to fruition. With this week’s pocket dump, we wanted to highlight some of our favorite purpose-driven everyday carry gear that works as well as a set as each superb piece does individually.
Arktype PMK Quick-Release Keychain
Combining the convenience of a quick-release attachment with the security of a belt loop-mounting keychain carabiner, the PMK features a sturdy heavy duty stainless steel snap shackle, handwoven 550 paracord, and a slim-but-secure neodymium magnetic clasp.
Machine Era Ti5 Slim Wallet
Built from aerospace grade 6AL-4V titanium, this USA made and machined minimalist wallet can hold up to seven cards and some cash, offers RFID blocking, is corrosion resistant, and comes with a double duty thumb slot/bottle opener.
Rexford Rut Titanium Utility Tool
Designed and made by legendary knife designer Todd Rexford, the Rut V2 is a USA made EDC multitool crafted from titanium and featuring functionality as a blade, bottle opener, screwdriver, and pry bar.
Zero Tolerance 0900 Les George Titanium Flipper
There is truly nothing more utilitarian than a solid everyday carry knife; and this one, from Zero Tolerance, is about as great as they come with a 2.7″ S35VN steel blade, a titanium handle with a frame lock and hardened lockbar, and a sleek design courtesy of master knife designer Les George.
