One of the many perks of running a gear store is the sheer ability to not only get to know these products on a more intimate level but actually scour the store itself to handpick several preferred items rather than perform a rudimentary online search. This month, after perusing the shop, we’ve decided one last firm grip on winter was in order, thus bringing you some chilling gear in black and blue colorways.
From wallets to pens for everyday note taking, to the very notebooks themselves, we’ve managed to compile yet another fine list of everyday carry items to help you tackle the day’s challenges: both real and nonsensical. We all know preparation is key, no matter where life’s wandering road may lead, so if last month was a bust, take a look though this month’s list of Gallantry gear and pick up some must-haves before the Spring season commences in just a few short weeks.
Field Notes Pitch Black
Keep tabs on the day’s events, jot down big ideas when they surface, or simply keep a running to-do list with a little help from Field Notes’ Pitch Black pocket notebook.
Exotac Waterproof FireSleeve Lighter Case
At just 4 inches in length, and waterproof for up to 30 minutes in 3 feet of water, the USA-made Exotac FireSleeve Lighter Case is both a survival and camping essential you shouldn’t leave home without.
Opinel Outdoor Survival Trekking Knife
Known for their reliable Trekking Knives, Opinel decided to take things a step further with their survival version. Ideal for those voluntary off-the-grid trips away from the daily grind.
Trekker Space Pen
If you’re a perpetual on-the-go “idea man,” there’s little out there that compete with the Trekker Space Pen. It boasts a nifty posi-lock snap-off cap, is keychain-friendly, and comes loaded with Fisher Space Pen’s PR4 pressurized cartridge for use in all environments. Yes, even outer space.
Droplet XL Dry Bag
With warmer days ahead, protecting that sensitive gear is a must when frequenting that beach, lake or river this summer. Matador’s very own keychain-compatible Droplet Bag serves as a great means to do so, thanks to a 100% waterproof construction and 20 liters of storage space.
KeyBar Aluminum Key Organizer
Clunky key rings are both antiquated and weighty. Instead, outfit your trusty means of entry within KeyBar’s USA-made Key Organizer. Each piece weighs only 1.4 ounces and can comfortably house up to 12 keys.
Prometheus Lights Beta-QRV2
There’s nothing like a handy pocket-sized flashlight to help light up the night. This particular offering from Prometheus Light, however, not only attaches to your keychain but is equipped with a quick-release function to keep things separated when needed.
Defy Snappy Valet Tray
When the time comes to lay your head down at night, Defy can help put your mind at ease with their stylish Snappy Valet Tray meant to house the day’s EDC in an easy non-assuming manner. It’s no wonder the brand’s mantra just so happens to be “Defy Clutter.’
Bellroy Note Sleeve
Functioning as a slimmed-down version of a traditional bifold, Bellroy’s sleek and minimal Note Sleeve wallet boasts enough room for your essential cards and cash without the bulk.
Heimplanet Monolith Minimal Backpack
Don’t let its clean and straightforward design fool you, Heimplanet’s Monolith backpack features a durable 500D Cordura construction, an internal MOLLE organizational grid, 18 liters of space, and an integrated sleeve fit for a 15” laptop.
Bit Bar Titanium EDC Screwdriver
Purposed to transform the multi-bit driver into a pocket-friendly everyday carry essential, the Bit Bar is a DLC-coated grade 5 titanium full-sized driver grip presented in a pocket-friendly format. It’s also completely TSA compliant.
Tsovet SVT-FW44 Watch
Complete with a unique dial face that pays homage to the styling of a WWI infantryman’s field watch, this handsome timepiece not only looks the part but functions without error or hesitation thanks to a Swiss quartz Ronda 513.1 movement.
