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.

Giant pen, key, and wallet or tiny backpack?

Your link to the limitied edition military grafton pen is broken.

I was able to find the page though, and it is a bit confusing to me as to what is different about it vs the gold grafton pen. The description states that it is the same pen, but with a subdued colorway. The photos of the military version show what looks like just a gold pen, but in low light. Possible that it has an ever-so-slight olive tinge to it-- But it is hard to tell from their photos. Interesting nonetheless

The grafton is a solid pen if you are on a budget. Much cheaper than others, and very versatile with the different ink cartridges it will accept. The pen has got some very good heft, but the balance is a little off. Also the click is very gritty feeling. But overall, for the price it is a very good product for those looking for a more professional, non-disposable pen.
