My Everyday Carry
I have a lot of fun with my adventure bag and everything inside here is used almost everyday in some fashion. In fact, one of the things I keep in here has been used to help take the picture, a 32GB SD card. I just realized my favorite sunglasses aren’t in the picture. Also, my ipod isn’t put in the same angle as the others because I rushed to put it in there. You can’t tell here but that knife has been used so much that the black on it is showing a lot of marks and that notebook is nearly filled so I have to get replacement paper. I get a lot of comments on my phone and I jailbroke it so the lockscreen would look like this. These were all laid out on my Saddleback Leather suitcase, my favorite flying partner. You’d be surprised how often that first aid box is used.

If you're still reaching for a disposable plastic pen on your desk, maybe it's time for an upgrade. You deserve a nicer pen, especially since you do so much hard work with it (and definitely not spend any time doodling during meetings at all). I'm not saying you have to splurge on a luxury pen just yet. But you can get a modern classic in the Caran d'Ache 849 without needing a bigwig C-level salary either.
As good-looking as its iconic Swiss design is, the 849 has all the makings of a functional everyday pen too. Unlike screw-on caps you'd find on most other all-metal pens, the 849's clicky top is quick, easy, and impossible to lose. Its robust and flexible metal pocket clip keeps the pen handy, while the aluminum hexagonal barrel lends durability and anti-roll functionality.
The 849's overall balanced and well-proportioned body comes as a ballpoint or mechanical pencil in plenty of finishes and colorways, so you can find an 849 that suits your use and style preferences. My personal favorite is the original grey finish (front and center), available at the link below.
