Everyday Carry: Straightaway

As we’ve said time and time again, everyday carry is a multifaceted concept not limited by anything other than your own imagination, tastes, desires, and budget. While that leaves a world of possibilities, it sometimes helps to have a direction in which to head regarding that which you stash on your own person. This can be a color or pattern, material preference, or something seemingly more tangential — the latter of which being what we have for you today in this week’s everyday carry loadout. Done up primarily in silver and black, this slick collection was specifically inspired by the world of motorsports — more specifically, rally car racing — but still functions as a stylish, functional selection of useful, handsome tools. This set of four pieces might not scream “I like fast cars,” but the spirit is still very much intact; it’s just been made a bit more subtle.

Orbitkey Clip

A sleeker, more design-forward alternative to a keychain carabiner, the Orbitkey Clip is an excellent method of hauling around your keys, accessories, and tools. But it also has a hidden talent: the keyring can detach from the main unit via a magnetic quick-release so you can access your keys and accompanying gear without the extra bulk and weight of the clip itself. And that makes this an exceptional addition to any EDC loadout.

Gerber Sedulo Knife

Another excellent American-made offering from Gerber, the Sedulo is superb for everyday carry purposes with its grippy textured handle, a trustworthy high-end S30V drop-point blade, and an ambidextrous Pivot Lock. Of course, the premium materials and master craftsmanship are also backed up by a beautifully-understated silhouette.

Shinola Utility Folded Card Holder

For people that are frequently on the road, the Shinola Utility Folded Card Holder is a great alternative to a traditional bifold wallet. Yes, it still boasts a heritage construction marked by top-grain leather, but it’s also slim enough to stash in your front pocket even when you’ve loaded it to the brim. That means you don’t have to worry about it affecting your comfort as you get behind the wheel of your favorite sports car.

Zodiac Grandrally Chronograph Watch

The most blatantly motorsports-inspired piece of this week’s loadout, Zodiac’s Grandrally Chronograph is striking enough to stand out as a statement piece but subtle enough to be worn in a variety of settings. This Swiss watch also boasts an ever-accurate quartz movement, a handy tachymeter bezel, a tough stainless steel case, and a comfortable ribbed leather strap. This one is a winner any way you look at it.
