Great site, always finding new things I want. This is my current Everyday Carry, sometimes I switch out the watch. I work as a Display Artist and carry a Scout Book sometimes (not pictured), I’ve been looking for a nice, simple, metal pen to accompany the notebook. Any suggestions?

- Chester Mox Wallet
- Keys w/ Carabiner
- Braun BN-32
- Motorola Droid Razr
- Vintage Handkerchief
- Kershaw Leek
- Jack Black Lip Balm

Editor’s Note: Hi Alex, I would say some safe choices for a metal pen to carry would be a Zebra F-701, which is a sturdy, full-sized pen of metal construction with a pocket clip and rugged body. For a notebook of that size, you might find the Pilot Birdy Mini Stainless Steel Pen [reviewed here] to be a good companion. To comment a bit on the rest of your carry, I like how much of it is very slim and streamlined. I actually prefer the Jack Black lip balm myself — tube balms tend to not unscrew/lose caps/mush up in your pocket as much as traditional sticks. The Leek is a solid everyday user knife without taking up too much pocket space. Vintage handkerchief and Braun watch look cool. As for your wallet, I am partial to its design myself (I have a similar one by Corter Leather) as it’s fairly minimal, but word on the street is that Chester Mox copied some MAKR Carry Goods designs… Lastly, of course it couldn’t hurt to add a small flashlight to your keychain, so long as you keep it lightweight that carabiner should retain everything just fine. Thanks for sharing!

Magpul DAKA Essential Wallet

When you carry a traditional (and possibly bulky) wallet, it's tempting to load it up with more than what you need. Having extra card slots makes it all too easy. So if you're having trouble paring down your cards and cash, try carrying a wallet that encourages you to do it. True to its name, the Magpul DAKA Essential Wallet helps you carry just the essentials thanks to its lean, considered design.

It has room for up to six cards and some emergency cash in its slim and lightweight polymer fabric frame. At just 3mm thin when empty, it's a wallet that stays discreet and low profile in your pocket. With its rounded corners and smooth edges, slipping it in and out of your pocket is a breeze as well.

Magpul designed this polymer wallet to stand up to both hard use and the elements like they did with their popular phone cases and EDC pouches in the DAKA line. The technical fabric itself has water-resistant properties, keeping your essentials dry from most everything short of immersing it in water. And if it does get wet, the polymer also boasts an anti-slip texture to keep it in place.

Unclutter your wallet carry with a switch to the Magpul DAKA Essential wallet to bring just the essentials every day.
