Gerber Impromptu Tactical Pen

Published By

There’s a fine line in every EDC between not carrying enough and carrying way too much. If you’ve found yourself stuffing your pockets full and unable to retrieve exactly what you need from the jumble of gear that’s weighing you down, you may have crossed that invisible line. Being prepared for anything without resorting to a fully stocked fanny pack requires careful planning, and choosing items that do double or even triple duty is an integral part of that plan. A tactical pen is one such solution.

The Impromptu Tactical Pen is the result of Gerber’s collaboration with law enforcement officers to develop a multi use, all-conditions ballpoint pen that incorporates the advice, “The most important tool you can carry is the item that happens to be in your hand.”

Its machined steel barrel and tempered tip design are strong enough to break through windows or protect you from attack, while its “Rite in the Rain” cartridge will write in wet and dry conditions. At 5.59”, it fits comfortably in your pocket and stays put with a stainless steel pocket clip, letting you retrieve it with ease when you need it the most.
