Think you have everything you need packed and ready for your next adventure? You may want to check your gear one more time.
Whether it be a day hike with some friends, an off-road adventure or canoe trip that somehow turned into an overnight camping trip on a sandbar …you may want to check out these cool everyday carry essential items.
Basic gear can get you through the jungle, but why stop there when you can adventure in style. Level up your everyday carry habits now.
Stanley Classic Wide Mouth Flask
Your grandfather likely carried the Stanley Classic Legend to work day in and day out until he gave it to your dad the day he retired. You’re probably still hoping you get it in the will.
These coffee tanks were bullet proof and meant to last for generations. But, you’re not interested in coffee at the moment. A nice shot of whiskey would help with that sprained ankle you endured when you tried to pee out of the canoe and it tipped over. Amateur. We get it.
This flask has a wide mouth like you. Raise your hand if you have tried to sip from a regular flask only to have an air bubble stop the flow of whiskey? We’ve all been there. You won’t have that problem with this flask.
Made from 18/18 stainless steel; it won’t rust and has a lifetime guarantee. Who knows, maybe you will be able to pass this down to your children. Doubt it, seeing as you haven’t mastered the skill of peeing from a canoe without capsizing. You’ll get there, we have faith in you.
If you want to be half as cool as your gramps, grab your own original bullet stopping coffee transporter on your way out.
SOG Wood Folding Pocket Knife
This is a capable gentleman’s knife that you need in your everyday carry. The wood handle is just icing on the cake. Three and a half inches of stainless-steel blade with the SOG for life guarantee; this lightweight workhorse is exactly what you need in your EDC. Stylish, tough and an affordable price that can accommodate even the most frugal outdoorsmen.
Rite in the Rain Weatherproof Metal Clicker Pen
What good is an epic adventure if you don’t jot down the details while they are fresh in your mind? You’re going to get your gear wet …we know about the canoe incident.
Pencil in your notes by campfire with this weatherproof writing utensil before the details get hazy.
You can now write through water, rain, camp grease and darn near anything else with permanent ink. This is a vast improvement from our forefathers having to scribble down their conquests with a regular pen you find in stores.
Don’t forget the Rite in the Rain Journal. Write down your stories. You’ll want to revisit your trips when you’re old and feeble. These are also great for field notes, tracking, shooting accuracy, football games, you name it.
They come in spiral, stapled, soft cover, hard cover, loose leaf, etc. Your choice
