It’s arrived. After much anticipation, the holiday shopping season is finally upon us. And with an official ceremony just a few days away — here’s to you, Black Friday — we figured it beneficial to give you a few key gifting options beforehand in the form of some sleek black and gold gear for the taking. Because, why not, this festive season only comes but once a year.
At least that’s the purpose here with the latest Gallantry scoured guide. For instance, who wouldn’t want to get their hands on a rad cargo backpack, travel wallet, combat watch, or even a handy pocket-size hex bit driver for good measure. So whether you’re gifting yourself for a job well done or someone close to you in desperate need of an EDC upgrade, we’ve got you covered.
Fisher Space Pen
The one and only. The original. The bullet pen. Not only does this handsome brass writing utensil come equipped with an unconditional lifetime guarantee but the design has been exhibited in New York’s Museum of Modern Art for years now. That alone should provide some semblance of rapport this pen carries with it on a daily basis.
Maxx & Unicorn D Keyring
Working with a local metal worker to keep things within the Brooklyn family, Maxx & Unicorn built this memorable 12-key-carrying keying to stand out amongst the crowd. Each piece also hosts a solid brass construction, threaded hexagonal closure, and laser-engraving with the brand details.
Vita Travel Kydex Wallet
Whether you’re just out and about or traveling long-term, a travel wallet can certainly come in handy. Take the Kydex, for example — a key item that’s built to fit your passport, documents, and notebooks with ease. It also features a military-grade strap and snap button closure, waterproof materials, and weighs in at modest 3.3 ounces.
Higonokami Friction Folding Knife
Any knife devotee will appreciate this Friction Folding Knife. That’s because this handsome piece is the closest you can get to carrying a katana in your pocket. It hosts two parts — a 3.5-inch the blue paper reverse tanto steel blade with lever deployment and a brass handle. Both pieces also host Japanese kanji stamped on them for an added touch, and each folding knife is handmade in Japan.
Machine Era Ti5 Slim Wallet
Slim, light, strong, and made in the USA — that’s what makes the Ti5 Slim Wallet so special. Well, that, and a Grade 5 titanium construction, seven-card capacity, RFID protection, bottle opener, and a corrosion-resistant build. Not bad, right?
Peak LED Eiger Ultra X Flashlight
Keep the light shining long after the sun sets into the evening. The Eiger is the most powerful single AAA battery-powered flashlight available. It’s incredibly bright, even blinding in some instances, built with solid brass right here in the USA, hosts an unbreakable scratch-resistant polycarbonate window, and is 50% brighter than the standard Eiger.
Scout Leather Co Hex Bit Driver
A miniature multi-screwdriver is about as tough as you can imagine given the small stature. Made here in the USA from solid brass, each Hex Bit Driver includes 13 Wiha hardened steel bits — including a flathead and Phillips-head — among plenty of others. This is without a doubt a handyman’s essential.
Filson Travel Kit
For the on-the-go Jetsetter, this USA-made travel kit is one piece of essential traveling gear you won’t want to leave home without. That’s because legacy brand Filson outfitted each Travel Kit with a rugged twill exterior, rustproof brass zipper closure, matte nylon lining, two internal pockets, and a bridle leather pull strap and carry loop. On the road again never sounded so alluring.
Chrome Industries Barrage Cargo Backpack
Built out specifically for the modern commuter, this waterproof backpack is as sturdy as they come. Each Barrage hosts a 1050D nylon exterior, EVA foam back panel, 18 oz truck tarpaulin liner, cargo net compression system, roll-top closure, and a 15-inch interior laptop sleeve. We challenge you to find an occasion where this bag won’t come in handy.
Lum-Tec Combat B42 Watch
Known for building some of the best mil-spec watches in the world, Lum-Tec pulled out all the stops with their Combat B42. With this timepiece, each build features a titanium carbide PVD-coated 316 surgical stainless steel case, anti-shock movement mounting, anti-reflective coating, Viton gaskets, 200m water-resistance, and triple sub dials among a handful of other tactical traits.
Scoured: The Best Gear on Gallantry - October 2018
The buck doesn’t stop there either — last month’s Gallantry scoured guide included a slew of urban camo gear to get you outfitted for the day-to-day within the concrete jungle.
