Everyday Carry: Urban Arsenal

In the everyday carry world, there seems to be this unspoken rule that we must choose whether we want our EDC gear to be tactical or stylish, but never both. And we’re not really sure why that is. Lucky for us, we’re not the only folks out there rallying against this strange happenstance. There are a number of brands and craftsman creating remarkably handsome pocket gear that is also surprisingly tough, capable, and certainly falls within the realm of what one might call ‘tactical.’ To illustrate this, we’ve put together this week’s pocket dump with a loadout that fits the bill perfectly. Each and every piece of gear you see here is built to exacting standards, both in quality of materials and overall functionality. And anyone, whether you’re a city-dwelling professional or a hardcore outdoor tactician, would be lucky to carry it along with them.

Tekto Takt Mini oTF Knife

With styling cues that make it look like it came from the future, Tekto’s 4.65″ Takt Mini OTF knife is an ultra-pocketable automatic blade boasting the latest in spring technology for an incredibly smooth and quick deployment. It also features a glass-breaker tip for emergency applications and a pocket clip for easy carry and quick access. You can also save some coin (15% off) on the Takt Mini using the exclusive discount code: HiC15

The James Brand Halifax Keychain Multi-Tool

Built from solid Cerakote-finished billet titanium, The James Brand’s Halifax keychain multi-tool is an everyday carry wonder measuring up at just 2.875″ in length, but still features 5+ built-in functions — ranging from a dual-purpose screwdriver to a scraper/pry bar, an integrated bottle opener, and more.

Purchase: $50

Peak LED Solutions Eiger Ultra X Flashlight

The original Eiger flashlight from Peak LED Solutions was already one of, if not the most powerful and tough single-AAA battery EDC flashlight available. But their Ultra X takes that to another level with its hard-anodized aluminum construction, unbreakable polycarbonate window, simple twist operation, and output that’s 50% brighter than the original.

Purchase: $55

Dango T02 Titanium Tactical Bifold Wallet

If ever there was a perfect blend between the tactical and the stylish, it is in the Dango T02 Titanium Tactical Bifold Wallet. Boasting a 16-card capacity, this wallet is built from sturdy titanium and top-grain premium leather, making it remarkably handsome and tough. But it also has Dango’s signature 12-function multi-tool insert that gives this wallet even more functionality.

Purchase: $199
