Scoured: Best Gear on Gallantry

Feb 6, 2018

Category: Gear

As far as online carry-centric stores for men are concerned, few sites out there compare with what Gallantry has to offer. For a couple years now, the San Diego-based store has rolled out some of the best USA-made and internationally-built gear that either fits comfortably in your pocket, on your back, or both. And the hits just keep on coming thanks to featured collaborations with notable brands such as Filson and The James Brand, which is why we deemed it necessary to put our discovery skillset to good use.

What results from this effort is a handful of great gear we found while scouring our sister site. Hoping to cover all the bases, below you’ll find everything from wallets to watches to pocket knives and everything in between. It’s what Gallantry does best, putting breakout brands on the map and giving legacy brands the love they deserve so we’re confident you’ll find one – or several – products below that will without a doubt catch your attention.

Everyman Porter Key Knife

On some occasions, discretion is paramount, especially when it comes to knives. Fortunately, that’s exactly what you’re getting with the Everyman Porter Key Knife. Made from 3CR13 stainless steel, it’s an incognito little folding knife that boasts a 1.2” straight blade and a built-in bottle opener.

Purchase: $21

Ezra Authur Small Leather Notebook

Not your ordinary little black book, Ezra Arthur stopped at nothing to design and build this USA-made pocketbook. We’re talking hand-stitched and Horween high-grain leather construction, 128 blank Tomoe River 52 GSM acid-free bleed resistant pages, and a bookmark/grid combo to keep your place held until the next idea or phone number presents itself for the taking.

Purchase: $32

Everyman Grafton Pen

Straightforward, sleek and utilitarian. That’s what Everyman was aiming for with their Grafton EDC pen and it’s what we’re presented with right here. Each Grafton is built with anodized aluminum, hosts a bolt-on pocket clip and accepts both Pilot G2 and Fisher Space Pen refills. Need we say more?

Purchase: $35

PMK Paracord Quick Release

Those looking for a quick release and carabiner hybrid need to look no further than this option from PMK. It’s made right here in the USA, features a heavy-duty snap shackle with a paracord tab and boasts a slim neodymium magnetic clasp that allows you to remove your keyring without needing to detach the entire keychain.

Purchase: $36

Olight M1X Striker Flashlight

More than just your ordinary flashlight, Olight’s M1X Striker not only features a blinding output of up to 1,000 lumens, but also an aerospace-grade tough aluminum body and toothed bezel for self-defense. And if 1000 lumens seems like too much, rest assured there are 5 brightness levels to suit your needs. It’s also water resistant and withstands drops of up to 1.5 meters.

Purchase: $60

VSSL Camp Flashlight Flask

Not just a flask and a flashlight, this highly utilitarian camping essential takes celebration and survival to the next level thanks to 10 ounces of liquid capacity, 2 shot glasses, a compass, bottle opener, and LED floodlight-style flashlight.

Purchase: $73

Bellroy Hide and Seek Wallet

Exercising both form and function in the construction of their wallets, Bellroy is one of those brands that continue to push the envelope in stylish carry items built with a purpose. Their all-grain vegetable-tanned leather Hide and Seek is no different, boasting a clever hideaway for larger bills or lesser-used cards. Speaking of which, the Hide and Seek can fit 12 of them, all while also hosting four additional quick-access slots and hidden coin/currency pouches.

Purchase: $90

James Brand Folsom Knife

As a design-forward folding knife with a clean and straightforward appearance, this olive drab and black Gallantry exclusive collaboration with The James Brand is a one of a kind EDC essential. The 2.75” drop point Carpenter CTS-BD1 blade is corrosion resistant and holds an edge as well as the rest of them while the G10 scaled handle offers a superior grip and ergonomic feel. The Folsom EDC knife also boasts ambidextrous deployment and a reversible pocket clip for ultimate carry convenience.

Purchase: $99

Civilware Hatchet

A necessary tool for outdoorsmen the world over, a hatchet serves a mighty purpose for life in the bush. And if you’re looking for one that’s as reliable as they are a pleasure to admire from a design perspective, we suggest trying this drop-forged 1060 high carbon steel hatchet from Civilware on for size.

Purchase: $99
