Nowadays, it seems like there’s a new Marvel movie every other month — and while that’s how fans of the franchise prefer it, there’s no doubt that it waters down the lore of some of the brand’s most iconic heroes. So, seeing as we’re on the verge of Independence Day, we’ve made an effort to shine a light on Marvel’s oldest (and most patriotic) heroes. Steve Rogers, better known as Captain America, has been a staple in Marvel’s comic books since the 1940s, and considering that he is celebrating his birthday (as well as his country’s) on the 4th of July, it seems right to shed some light on the steadfast Avengers leader with this week’s red, white, and blue EDC loadout.
Kizer Comfort LL Folding Knife
This pocket knife boasts a corrosion-resistant 154CM stainless steel blade that makes for clean cuts in virtually any scenario, whether you’re prepping a fish at the campsite or slicing vegetables in the kitchen (just make sure you’re cleaning it in between). The blade itself measures 3.25″ long, while the liner lock-equipped knife stretches 7.5” in total when open. Finally, the front flipper knife features eye-catching red G10 scales that are complemented by a deep pocket clip for a confident tip-up carry.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 Earbuds
Like any product you’d buy from Bang & Olufsen, the Beoplay 8 paves the way for a remarkable soundscape. Thanks to its top-tier sound isolation capabilities and dynamic speakers, you can immerse yourself in an incredible listening experience for as long as 35 hours. All things considered, if you’re on the lookout for a pair of new in-ears, there’s no need to look further than the high-end audio manufacturer.
Randolph Engineering Aviator Sunglasses
Randolph’s popular Aviator sunglasses are easily its most iconic, dating back to 1973. The USA-bred eyewear manufacturer has been cranking out this silhouette to the delight of soldiers and citizens alike ever since, and if Rogers were real, we bet he’d own a pair. With this particular reference, the brand’s high-performance polarized Cobalt lenses are a sight for sore eyes, paving the way for soothing green and yellow wavelengths to take the strain off your pupils, all the while providing 100% UVA protection. Round that all out with a matte chrome frame and there is no room for error with this stylish silhouette.
Rolex GMT-Master II
The GMT-Master II is one of Rolex’s many timeless timepieces, and this particular example is the direct descendent of the 1950s original by way of its red and blue “Pepsi” bezel. The bidirectional bezel’s Cerachrom insert is labeled in 24-hour increments, and when paired with the watch’s fourth hand, it allows for tracking up to three time zones at once. Powered by Rolex’s proprietary Calibre 3285 automatic GMT movement, which offers a power reserve of up to 70 hours, and finished off with a stainless steel Jubilee bracelet for a touch of luxury, this is the ultimate travel watch.
