My everyday carry
I’m an Environmental Engineer from Salt Lake City. My job keeps me on the road about 50% of the time. The Juice Pack keeps my phone charged when I’m traveling, The Moleskine is for expense report receipts (my admin loves that I keep them organized). The Memo Pad and Space Pen are great for taking field notes, even in the rain. The watch looks great and cost about $6000 less than a real one. I love the Gerber Artifact but the TSA doesn’t, so I got the Shard for air travel. They Mighty Wallet is made from Tyvek; light, durable and low profile. Unfortunately, they quit making the mini version so I’ll have to make it last.
Watches are an integral part of many everyday carry setups. Beyond their primary use of telling time, they’re also a reflection the wearer’s personality and style. These watches have rich historical appeal as they were made for and worn in the field by infantry, Special Forces, and WWII pilots. Nowadays, military style watches are popular amongst the EDC community for their features, legibility, durability, and aesthetic. They go hand in hand with tactical gear you might already be carrying, but can easily be dressed down due to their timeless designs. In this guide, we’ll show you our recommendations for good looking, rugged watches that won’t break the bank.
