While we certainly have a soft spot in our hearts for rugged tactical gear, sometimes the occasion calls for a much more refined touch. But, just because you find yourself in a suit and tie, it doesn’t mean that you have to leave your everyday carry gear at home. Instead, why not cater your carry appropriately? Just keep in mind that classy gear doesn’t mean ‘less capable’ by any stretch. Sophisticated and tough can absolutely go hand in hand. To illustrate how, we’ve put together this week’s pocket dump with some of our favorite EDC items that both look slick and still offer up plenty of resilience.
Keysmart Compact Key Holder
Small enough to fit in your pocket but capacious enough to hold up to 8 keys in its unique s-shaped design, this lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum key organizer can free you from pocket jingle, comes with durable stainless steel hardware, and even has a key fob attachment so you can store your car remote with all your normal keys.
Deejo Granadilla Black 37g
One of the best examples of a minimalist everyday carry pocket knife, the Deejo 37g is named for its extremely light weight. This example also features a granadilla wood handle, a titanium coated 420 stainless steel blade, and an integrated liner lock.
Dango D01 Dapper Wallet
Designed and made here in the USA, this very lightweight pared-down tactical wallet is built from high quality leather and aerospace grade aluminum, offers RFID protection, has a built-in bottle opener, and can hold up to 12 cards and cash.
FourSevens Bolt Mini Flashlight
About the same size as a pen, this LED EDC flashlight boasts an output range of 5 to 100 lumens over 5 configurations – including an SOS beacon – runs for up to 20 hours on just a single AAA battery, and has a unique and smooth bolt action switch.
Tsovet SVT-RM40 Watch
Designed to bridge the gap between simplicity and functionality, this handsome Swiss-powered wristwatch features a 12-hour dial with a sub-minute dial, a trio of faceted silver PVD steel hands, a circular date window at the 6 o’clock position, and a comfortable all-black leather band.
