Becoming one with your surroundings doesn’t have to remain exclusive to the outdoors. With a sizable percentage of us now living in large urban centers, it only makes sense that we work to blend into the concrete jungle as well — if, of course, that’s a prerogative. Call it “urban camo” if you will, but one thing’s for certain: there’s no shortage of muted urban-ready gear on Gallantry.
And there lies the motivation for this month’s Gallantry scoured post; for this latest roundup of quality gear is built specifically for the urbanite, the daily commuter, the youthful creative consistently on the go. From useful pockets knives, multi-tools, and Dopp kits for unexpected overnight stays with a backpack to house it all, there’s nothing on this list that won’t come in handy.
Word Pocket Notebook
Keep the day’s events logged and noted with a little help from American-made Word Pocket Notebook. Each three-pack of pocket-sized booklet comes with 48 lined pages and features the Word bullet point system.
Chrome Industries Kilo Dopp Kit
For when day turns to night, keeping your overnight essentials safe in this 168D ballistic nylon Dopp kit is never a bad look. Additional features include a 400D truck tarpaulin liner, commercial-grade five-bar webbing hang strap, internal organization pockets, and a lifetime guarantee. Can’t go wrong here.
American Bench Craft Caliber Clip Wallet
A titanium money clip at its core, this sleek and minimalist wallet hosts a full-grain vegetable-tanned card pocket, metal rivet construction, and a 3-4 card capacity plus cash — for the no-frills on-the-go gentleman.
Everyman Grafton Pen
With a notebook comes the need for a pen. So when doodling or epiphany calls, be sure to opt for this anodized 6061 aluminum pen built with a bolt-on pocket-clip, deep groove grip, clicker tip deployment, and a lifetime guarantee.
Arktype PMK Paracord Release Keychain
Keychains can get cumbersome over time. We all know this. However, with the quick-release functionally of this USA-made black oxide stainless steel keychain made with hand-woven type III 550 paracord, a cumbersome keychain will no longer be an issue.
Tactica M100 Multi-tool
Resembling a classic carabiner but offering so much more, the Tactica M100 is just what the urban commuter is looking for. This lightweight piece with upward of 20 built-in functions is scratch resistant, hosts a stainless steel core, and composite exterior that’s 40% lighter than titanium.
Craighill Ripple Bottle Opener
Since you never know when Miller Time will strike, it’s best to always come prepared. And with this USA-made carbon black bottle opener built with solid stainless steel and a nitrocarburized coating, there will never be a bottle left unopened.
Benchmade 585 Mini Barrage Knife
Designed by the master himself, Warren Osbourne, this USA-made 154CM steel drop-point folding knife comes equipped with a 2.91” blade, AXIS locking mechanism, AXIS Assist assisted-opening, and Valox handle scales.
Aer Fit Pack 2
Aer first broke into the scene a few years back with their everyday gym/work backpack that soon became a fan favorite. Now, with the release of this camo-colored Fit Pack 2, the sage continues. We’re talking a water-resistant 1680D Cordura nylon exterior, 18.8 liters of internal space, a moisture-resistant shoe compartment, padded laptop pouch, and a handful of internal organization pockets for good measure.
Jack Mason D101 Diver’s Watch
Not just for diving but for livin’, the D101 Diver Watch from Jack Mason is a handsome urban timepiece complete with a Japanese quartz Miyota movement, a rotating dive time bezel, 42mm stainless steel case, and water resistance up to 300 meters.
