Everyday Carry: Track Day

May 20, 2020

Category: Everyday Carry

To those with a taste for it, pushing your vehicle to its limits can be one of the most thrilling experiences. However, high-speed driving is dangerous and most-often illegal on public roads — and we implore people, for their own safety and the safety of the larger public, to adhere to the laws prohibiting street racing. There is a safer, perfectly legal alternative, however, for those looking for a place where they can put the pedal to the metal: track days. With a race-ready rental vehicle or some significant modifications to your own car or motorcycle, you can actually take that ride down to the local race track and have your way with every turn and straight until you’ve gotten your fill of those high-speed thrills. It’s these automotive experiences that have inspired this week’s carbon fiber-clad everyday carry loadout. We’re not saying you have to be a speed demon to haul this pocket gear; but it doesn’t hurt, either.

Dango M-1 R-Spec Wallet

Inspired directly by motorsports — especially race car driving — this Dango wallet is constructed from a handsome, contrasting combination of aerospace-grade aluminum, carbon fiber, top-grain leather, and has a silicone band. It can also hold up to 10 cards, weighs just 3 oz, and is perfectly TSA-compliant (unless you stash a compatible MT04 Multi-Tool inside of it).

Purchase: $129

Benchmade 565-1 Mini Freek Folding Knife

A smaller take on Benchmade’s famed Freek knife with some special edition touches, this everyday carry-friendly folder boasts a total length of 7.04 inches. That includes a 3″ blade crafted from high-end CPM-S90V steel, carbon fiber handle scales, and (of course) the brand’s signature AXIS lock.

Purchase: $310

Salt x Aether Explorer Sunglasses

A spectacular collaboration between Salt and Aether, the Explorer shades represent a modern, driving-friendly take on classic aviator sunglasses. They also feature polarized lenses, an ultralight and super-tough titanium frame, and wind-resistant shields to protect your eyes even at high speeds.

Purchase: $600

Tissot T-Race MotoGP 2020 Automatic Chronograph

As the official sponsor of high-speed MotoGP racing, it seems fitting that Tissot would come out with a two-wheeler-inspired automatic chronograph — with a case inspired directly by brake calipers. Of course, this limited edition offering also has plenty of other stellar features, like a Swiss-made automatic movement, a 45-hour power reserve, a transparent caseback, and so much more.

Purchase: $1,295
