Everyday Carry Best Sellers
Bull & Stash Leather Notebook
Bull & Stash began as an idea and a scrap of leather and turned into a collection of notebooks that quite literally never run out of pages. The Stash is their largest creation yet, and with its easily-refillable page design and oiled leather cover that only grows more distinct with use, you won’t ever again be in the market for another notebook.
Armogan Le Mans Chronograph
Armogan’s watches recall the adventure of an earlier era, when beautiful engines and machinery went hand in hand with a wily, adventurous spirit. The Le Mans, as its name indicates, celebrates the heights of 20th Century auto racing, a sport whose drivers displayed a certain refined appetite for risk, confidence, and elegance. This watch’s durable stainless steel case, perforated suede strap, and chronograph make it a driver-approved timepiece that takes on character as you put it through its paces at the racetrack.
Foursevens Preon I Flashlight
The FOURSEVENS Preon P1 flashlight is a good way to light up the dark without dipping too deep in your wallet. Carrying it is easy thanks to a convenient pocket clip and because it’s made of aircraft aluminum you know it’s strong enough for everyday carry. It accepts AAA batteries and has a max output of 100 lumens, which is customizable with five different interface modes so that you can get the right amount of light every time.
Deejo Juniper 37g Knife
This featherlight wonder barely registers on the scale at a mere 37 grams, or roughly the weight of three pencils. Each blade is designed around superior in-hand balance and portability in either stainless steel or damascus. Wooden handles in a variety of finishes, an inner-lock design, and pocket clip round out the knife.
Everyman Grafton Pen
Everyman's Grafton pen makes for a sturdy, refillable jotter that won’t break the bank. It's built from an expertly-weighted, anodized aluminum body, outfitted with a deep groove grip. It takes popular refills like the Pilot G2 and Fisher Space Pen cartridges, and features a heavy-duty bolt-on clip for transport.
Ridge makes some of the best value minimalist wallets around. The wallet's integrated track accommodates up to 12 cards safely, yet accessible with a simple one-finger push. For some added carry space, an elastic band lets you secure cash or other small essentials to the wallet's exterior. The lightweight body itself (2 oz.) blocks RFID-skimming devices to protect your identity and credit cards.
Huckberry Compact EDC Kit
A knife, a dual-function screwdriver and a multitool, all packed neatly into an ultra-compact carry system from Keysmart's Extended base chassis. The kit includes some essential gear don’t want to be without, no matter the situation, like a Griffin Pocket Tool, bit-driver with a reversible Phillips/flathead bit, and a super compact folding blade.
