Scoured: The Best EDC Gear On Gallantry

Oct 15, 2020

Category: Gear

Black and white go together like, say, peanut butter and jelly. They’re the perfect complement to one another and have the ability to create an aesthetic that’s simultaneously clean and a bit intimidating. Perhaps that’s why George Lucas used that exact color combination for his iconic Stormtrooper armor from the Star Wars saga.

Whether you’re a die-hard “galaxy far, far away” fan or you just like clean designs and start contrast, you can apply it to your own everyday carry if you know where to search for gear. Turns out, one of the best places to get your hands on EDC equipment worth stashing in your pockets, slinging over your shoulder, or stashing in a bag can be found on men’s gear site Gallantry. And that’s what we have for you this October: the best black-and-white (and a touch or two of silver) EDC gear you can get on Gallantry.

Word Pocket Notebook

Easier, simpler, and more reliable than your smartphone, a pocket notebook is something we believe everyone should carry — even if you only use it every so often. And you could do far worse than these USA-made, 48-page, three packs from Word. Complete with a handy bullet-point system, these pocket notebooks are great for organization, taking notes, writing down great ideas, drawing, and so much more.

Purchase: $10

Izola To My Health Hip Flask

While you may not want to carry a flask around with you every single day, there are numerous appropriate occasions for such an addition to your EDC loadout. And, whatever your spirit of choice, you know you can rely on this Izola hip flask with its 3-ounce capacity, leakproof screw top, and food-safe stainless steel construction. Cheers to your health!

Purchase: $24

Everyman Grafton Pen

Even if you’re not willing to carry a pocket notebook, you should still add a pen to your everyday carry in case you ever need to write anything down, sign your autograph, etc. But you don’t need some unnecessary, overbuilt, tactical-inspired piece of hardware. Rather, something simple and elegant like the Everyman Grafton Pen does the trick wonderfully. This aluminum pen is guaranteed for life, is compatible with both Pilot and Fisher Space Pen ink refills, and has a simple-to-use clicker deployment mechanism.

Purchase: $35

The James Brand Hardin Carabiner

An elegant, refined, minimalist take on this EDC staple, the Hardin from TJB is crafted from drop-forged aluminum, has a secure dual-compartment key-capturing design, and boasts a secure spring-loaded gate. If you need to keep your keys and keychain tools at-the-ready or you simply can’t stand your keychain getting bunched up uncomfortably in your pocket, you can’t go wrong with a keychain carabiner like the Hardin.

Purchase: $40

Graf & Lantz Valet Tray

At the end of the day, your EDC gear needs a place to rest just like you do. But rather than potentially scratching up your gear and/or surfaces, acquiring a Graf & Lantz Valet Tray will simultaneously result in you having a safe place to store your EDC and will let you keep it all collected and organized — ready to go at a moment’s notice. And it doesn’t hurt that it looks smart, too.

Purchase: $65

Silver Piston Indian Nickel Money Clip

Made in the USA utilizing a genuine carved nickel, this beautiful money clip is a stellar wallet alternative for those occasions when you need something perhaps a bit more minimalist and refined. Furthermore, this money clip was designed to age with use — meaning each one will acquire a unique patina exclusively crafted by its user’s day-to-day activities.

Purchase: $80

Bellroy Sling Bag

A speedy and, in some cases, more secure alternative to a backpack, briefcase, or duffel bag, the Bellroy Sling Bag is built using durable weatherproof fabrics and environmentally-friendly top-grain leather, boasts a fleet 7L capacity, has a clever expandable and collapsible design (so you can customize it to how much gear you’re hauling at any given time), and you can get it in gray or all-black.

Purchase: $99

Leatherman Surge Limited Edition Multi-Tool

A limited take on one of Leatherman’s best all-around folding multi-tools, the Surge you see here boasts a smart silver-and-black colorway, 21 built-in stainless steel tools (ranging from pliers to drivers and everything in-between), it comes with its own MOLLE-compatible sheath, and it is backed by the brand’s 25-year guarantee. If you like the idea of having a fully-featured, fully-loaded toolbox in your pocket, then this is how you can manage that.

Purchase: $130

Timex x Todd Snyder Military Field Watch

A modern recreation of a design from the 1970s, this Timex and Todd Snyder wristwatch has a sturdy and tough brass case protecting a reliable quartz movement within. It also comes with a durable mineral crystal, a NATO-inspired fabric strap, and unmistakable field watch styling. For the price, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better, more handsome military-inspired field watch.

Purchase: $138

The James Brand County Knife

A truly stunning, modernized take on the non-locking slipjoints so many of us became familiar with in our childhoods, TJB’s County Knife is a masterpiece of EDC gear crafted with a Sandvik steel blade, a combination handle built from stainless steel and genuine ebony wood, and boasts one of the sleekest, most pocketable silhouettes in recent years. It’s certainly a bit of an investment, but it’s a true work of art worth every penny.

Purchase: $150
