The Best Everyday Essentials from Everyman

When you start looking at your EDC gear as investments, quality and durability come to the fore as primary factors in your purchase decisions. Being able to find the right combination of performance, aesthetics, and price lets you build a refined and minimalist kit that’s easy to carry and performs exactly when you need it. Everyman is a company focused on providing high value products that make your everyday carry experience better. Driven by their desire to create thoughtfully designed products, they’ve been delivering on consecutive successful Kickstarter campaigns with products that are tailored to the needs of active go-getters and practical EDCers. Here we take a look at the best everyday essentials the brand has to offer, and whether it’s pocket-sized essentials or a daily carry pack, Everyman fulfills on its promise of providing functional and high-quality products built to last.

Grafton Pen

We start with the product that most EDCers know Everyman for: their now-classic Grafton Pen. This buy-for-life, metal-barreled, clicky pen provides reliability and durability in a functional and value-packed design. Its clean and minimalist lines are the result of months of prototyping, including getting feedback from award-winning author and illustrator, Jon Klassen. What you get is a well-balanced, anodized aluminum body with a grooved grip section for comfort and control.

It’s also a versatile pen that’s able to take refills from many different brands: the write-anywhere Fisher Space Pen refill, Monteverde Ballpoint, Parker Gel and Ballpoint, as well as the new and improved Grafton refills. It can also take on Bic Gel, Uniball Jetstream, and Pilot G-2, thanks to the refill sizing kit that’s included in the box. The range of possible refills allows you to personalize your writing experience with the Grafton according to your needs and preferences. A heavy duty bolt-on metal clip provides reliable retention for shirt or pants pocket carry. At 1 ounce and 145 mm long, it’s a familiar form factor that’s both easy to carry all day and easy to use during long writing sessions.

By experience, everyone has their own preferences for an everyday carry pen. The designers at Everyman combined all the qualities they liked in their personal favorites and put it in a refined and versatile package now known as the Grafton Pen. It’s currently available in Black, Gunmetal, Silver, Gold, Rose Gold, plus a new colorway for September 2020 that you can order right now, the limited edition Military Grafton, available exclusively on Everyman's website at the link below.

Holden Card Wallet

Made from soft and supple 100% premium USA cowhide leather, the Holden Card Wallet is designed for those looking for more than a card wallet. Six separate pockets in the classic bifold format gives you the capacity and organization to take all your essential cards and cash in one go. At 2.88" x 4.25" it still retains a compact and slim profile that makes it a great option for a front pocket wallet. Sturdy stitching and the embossed Everyman logo give it a classy and subdued look, while the full-grain leather construction molds better to its contents over time, giving you a wallet that’s unique to you. Get your Holden Card Wallet in a stealthy black or a classy tan colorway, to better match or complement the rest of your EDC kit.

Porter Key Multi-Tool 2.0

The Porter Key Multi-Tool 2.0 is the result of improvements in materials, construction, and design over the original version, resulting in a nifty 2.5" accessory that adds functionality to your keychain. Unfold it to reveal a handy 1.2" utility edge that you can use to open packages, cut stray threads, and to do some light cutting tasks. Fold it up and you have access to an always welcome bottle opener. The 3Cr13 stainless steel construction keeps it light and tough, while the familiar form factor means it can go with the rest of your keys unnoticed, until you need it. The Porter Key Multi-Tool 2.0 comes with a reinforced stainless steel cable ring, ready to integrate into your keychain setup.

Hideout Pack

Last but not least, as a way to carry not only your pocket essentials but your entire daily load, Everyman offers its Hideout Pack: a vintage-inspired design meant to tackle your commute, weekend travels, and everyday adventures. This iconic travel pack features durable heavyweight 1680D ballistic nylon, bolstered by a polyurethane coating for improved weather resistance. Underneath, there’s an 800g PVC-coated tarpaulin base, offering better protection when you set it down on rough or dirty surfaces.

A smooth-operating three-way zipper system helps you load up this 17" x 11" x 8" backpack. You’ll find ample room inside the 24-liter main compartment, which includes laminated mesh dump pockets on the sides for organization. These allow you to segregate smaller gear or stow away a change of clothes separate from your main load. On the back, a checkpoint-friendly TSA laptop sleeve, lined with felted wool, keeps your tablet and laptop safe. The whole sleeve opens flat to make travel inspections a simpler and easier affair. Outside the pack, a zippered dump pocket and a fleece-lined compartment provide protection and quick access to gadgets and sunglasses. There’s also a security pocket hidden in the back plate, for your passport, wallet, and other flat valuables.

The Hideout Pack is no ordinary everyday backpack. Multiple prototypes of this versatile bag have traveled all over the world, enduring 300,000 miles over multiple continents, all while surviving different climates, including typhoon season in Japan. The latest version of this pack has been updated with heavy duty leather pulls, a leather handle, and a trolley sleeve that lets you attach it to the rest of your luggage while travelling. It also features improved shoulder straps, plus a sternum strap to keep things stable and help spread the load when it’s fully packed.

Everyman also offers a matching Hideout Dopp Kit designed to fit inside this backpack, which you can get separately or bundled with the Hideout Pack. This one-bag solution blends a timeless design with modern features and indestructible materials, backed by a lifetime guarantee.

Sniper Bladeworks 2020: Reload Collection

For many people in the EDC knife community, being able to own a unique limited edition blade designed by a custom knifemaker is the stuff of dreams. Aside from the price of some of those knives, we tend to find out about an interesting knife that you want to add to your collection after they’re already sold out and out of production, especially when it comes to exclusive blades made only in small batches. You have to be in the know at the right time, and we’re here to do that for you today with an opportunity to pick up one or more world-class designs by award-winning fabricator Lance Abernathy and his company Sniper Bladeworks based out of Kansas City.

They’re coming out with a brand new set of five tactical fixed blade knives and folders themed as the “2020: Reload” collection with superior “pistol grip” ergonomics and an overbuilt design language that makes them ready to take on all missions regardless of size. And because they’re only making 555 of each knife, all signed and numbered by the maker, and made available only through their Kickstarter page, if you want one of these knives you’re going to have to reserve one as soon as possible because supplies won’t last. To help you out in your decision, we’ll run down the models that are available for purchase and talk about why you should consider adding them to your own everyday carry.

Gotta catch 'em all!

Apple Watch Series 6 and SE

Apple Watch Series 6 and SE

The Apple Watch is one of the community’s top choices when it comes to EDCing a smart watch, and it all comes down to seamless integration with your phone and useful features that make the watch on your wrist do way more than tell the time. And with the recent announcement of two new models of the Apple Watch, the Series 6 and the SE, there’s even more reason now to upgrade, or add one of these wearables to your ensemble if you’re just starting out.

With the Series 6, Apples has included a faster processor inside of the watch, allowing it to be far more responsive when running applications. The watch hardware also includes a pulse oximeter and ECG functions, allowing you to track your critical heart vitals with the help of app integration on your iPhone. That focus on health extends to letting you know if things seem off, and even calling for help if you experience a fall or other medical emergency with it on your wrist. That ability to call for help when you’re incapacitated can mean the difference between life and death in a bad situation, especially if it’s unlikely that anyone might chance on you in distress when you’re stuck at home.

As a watch itself, the Series 6 is the best Apple Watch yet, with an always-on Retina display that lets you read the time at a glance like you can with a traditional watch. But unlike with a standard mechanical or quartz movement timepiece, the internals of the apple watch also let you keep track of your location with GPS, your current altitude with an altimeter, and do various communication tasks unheard of with a standard off-the-shelf watch. For instance, if you leave your wallet (and phone) at home you can use the watch on your wrist to do contactless payments with the cellular data model. And when you get tired of the watch face, you can switch up the aesthetic without having to buy a completely different watch. The same goes with the watch bands, with a plethora of various colorways and designs, including a new silicone band that has the appearance of a NATO-style strap.

While the Series 6 commands the price of the latest and greatest in apple’s wearable stable, there is an alternative if you’re on a budget, or don’t need all its features. Thankfully with the new SE model of the Apple Watch, they have you covered with the vast majority of the Series 6’s flagship features, but without the price. You do have to forego an always-on display and the new O2 stats and EKG monitor, but the experience is still feature-rich and well worth the asking price.

If you’re looking to add either the Apple Watch Series 6 or the SE to your everyday carry, today marks your opportunity to get your order in and be one of the first to have it on your wrist. Pick them up from Amazon at the links below.

Trending: Longines Heritage 1945 Automatic Watch

The Longines Heritage 1945 Automatic brings back a timeless design in a premium yet modestly-priced package that’s sure to please watch enthusiasts. Part of the Heritage models that pay tribute to the brand’s early designers, it harks back to its namesake’s decade, when watch designs sported a simple, clean, and legible aesthetic. The Heritage 1945 features a vertical-brushed copper dial adorned with simple period markers and classic fonts, blued steel hands, and a sub-seconds register right above the 6 o’clock mark. Over it, the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal has multiple layers of anti-reflective coating to ensure a clear time-telling view. Underneath, the Longines Caliber L609 automatic movement powers the smaller seconds dial and provides 42 hours of power reserve, allowing you to skip almost two days of on-wrist usage when fully wound. The 40mm polished stainless steel case holds it all together while providing 100 feet of water resistance, enough for regular daily use. Last but not least, it comes with a classy beige calfskin leather strap that completes the classic look. Check out this tasteful and value-packed homage at the link below.
