Long gone are the days of spring break when you’re free from any major responsibilities for days on end, but you should still make it a point to get outdoors to honor the season each year. In order to make the most of your time outside under the shining sun, you need the proper gear. The American company Gallantry always strives to provide you with quality everyday products whether you’re cutting through the urban wild or trekking through nature.
Now that it’s April, we’ve rounded up a shinier set of rugged gear to upgrade your pack. We’ve gathered adventure essentials, such as a well-crafted pocket knife, compact compass, and powerful pocket beam. However, we’ve also considered the time you’ll spend in the booming city, as we’ve added a sleek wallet, nylon strap timepiece, and a smooth-action EDC pen. Whether you’ll spend your sunnier days at the beach, bar, or on a trail, you’re sure to find an item or two on our list to help you enjoy this warm-up to summer.
