Everyday carry isn’t random. It is a personal selection of pocket- and keychain-friendly gear tailored specifically to meet the daily needs of its carrier.
However well put together you think yours is, chances are good that your EDC could use an overhaul. To that end, we’ve curated a few selections below to consider adding to your current everyday carry ensemble.
SOG Centi II Knife
When it comes to an EDC knife, bigger is not necessarily better, especially when you’re attempting to add one to an ever-expanding collection of carry items. Measuring in at just under three inches when closed, the Centi II is versatile enough to stow in your pocket for tackling most any daily cutting task, and small enough to attach to your keychain to free up some valuable pocket real estate.
Bellroy Low Wallet
If you’ve too few cards to carry a traditional bifold, yet too many to go full-on minimalist with your everyday carry, Bellroy’s Low Wallet provides a stylish way to bridge the gap. Enjoy the capacity for up to 12 cards, just enough space for a stack of bills, and nothing more. Consider it a bifold without the bulk.
Everyman Grafton Pen
The Grafton Pen proves that you needn’t empty your bank account to own a high-end EDC pen. Its made from anodized aluminum and features a bolted-on pocket clip, a grooved body for an improved grip, and an efficient click mechanism. The Grafton’s ink cartridge leaves a lot to be desired, but fortunately the pen is compatible with a host of alternatives, including Fisher Space ballpoint, Montverde ballpoint, and both gel and ballpoint ink cartridges from Parker.
Palm Minimalist SmartPhone
The Palm phone is for those looking to slim down their carry on the weekends or in the evenings. It’s less than half the size of your bulky Android phone, yet does pretty much everything the same — albeit less seamlessly. If your smartphone is essentially the size of a small tablet and you’ve grown tired of lugging it in your back pocket, or if you’re just not ready to wear a smartwatch, add the Palm to your Verizon account and enjoy charging two phones at night instead of one.
KeySmart Key Organizer
There is no easier way to streamline your everyday carry than with a KeySmart key organizer. Its built from aircraft-grade aluminum and tucks away up to eight standard keys, eliminating keychain jingle in the process.
