10 Everyday Carry Essentials: Tough And Tactical

everyday carry essentials tactical gear

This hand-picked collection of everyday carry gear centers around some tactical items that will be there for you in a pinch. All of these premium items are built to hold up to whatever you throw at them and perform in any situation.

Our first item is on the top left, the Mystery Ranch 2-Day Assault 27L Pack is a bag that’s perfect for everyday use but also big enough (at 27-liters) for a weekend if you want to load it up with clothes and gear. It is super lightweight at only 3-pounds so while it can carry several day’s worth of gear it won’t weigh you down. The MOLLE on the bag’s exterior will allow you to clip on additional gear you want and it has an attachable web waist belt for weight distribution if you want to fully load it up. Below that are the Danner Mountain 600 EnduroWeave boots which feature a carbon washed upper of durable woven textiles for extreme durability. The Vibram Fuga has a Megagrip compound that’s been designed for the absolute most grip you can get on both wet and dry surfaces. They also have a low profile for everyday wear.

In the center, we feast our eyes on the newly released ‘Basics’ collection from Highly Clutch. These are some of the absolute best t-shirts on the planet and much more affordable than the competition. You can purchase the individual tees for $15.99 but that’d be silly because you can buy 3-packs for $39 and 5-packs of different colors for only $59!. You can pair that shirt with your new Revtown USA Jeans. These are some of the best jeans you’ll find anywhere and they’re an absolute steal at that price point. They also come in an array of colors and fits for you to choose from.

Moving up tot the top right corner, we see Luminox ICE-SAR Arctic 1000 which is a 100% Swiss construction watch powered by a Swiss-made Quartz movement and the Tritium tubes provide a permanent lume that needs no light source to charge up. It is water-resistant up to 200-meters an as rugged as any watch out there. That is accompanied by the Dango Products T01 Spec Ops Utility Wallet is so much more than a typical wallet with a built-in 14-function multi-tool that can help tackle whatever challenges life throws your way. It holds up to 12-cards, is RFID-blocking, and it has aerospace-grade anodized aluminum chassis so it’s outrageously durable but still lightweight at only 2-ounces.

Moving along, we see the Smith & Wesson SWATMB High Carbon Knife measure 7.5-inches overall and weighs only 3.9 ounces. The blade on this knife is made from a 4034 Black Oxide High Carbon stainless steel and it has a black aluminum handle with Trac-Tec inserts to bolster its strength. Next up is the Kupilka Firesteel 8 Firestarter which will fire off large sparks up to 3000 ̊ C which is more than enough to get a fire going in wet conditions. The handle is built to be used in either hand and with minimal effort.

We finish it off today with the LingSY Tungsten Steel Tactical Pen, a glass breaking tool made from T6061 aircraft aluminum alloy that has a hard tungsten carbide tip at the end for breaking. It is compatible with most ballpoint pen refills for writing including the Schmidt P900M refills. And the Wazoo Survival Gear Survival Pod which is equal parts survival tool and keychain. It is made with heavy duty type III commercial 550 paracord. The keychain goes in your pocket or you can latch it onto your backpack.

As always, you can pick and choose your favorite items from the list above or you can scoop the entire collection as you see it and REALLY treat yourself. If you have any accessories or apparel that you believe deserves to be featured here you can always hit me up on Twitter at @casspa or email at cass@brobible.com.

I’m sure most of you have realized this by now, but I publish a new edition of the ‘Everyday Carry‘ essentials roundup Monday through Thursday here at BroBible with the ‘Things We Want‘ gear guide going out on Fridays. If you know of a product that should be featured here you can hit me up on email at cass@brobible.com, or find me on Twitter at @casspa. Or if you’ve got an idea for a daily theme I should touch on then hit me up!

I’m sure you’ve noticed by now but I can’t list the prices for an Amazon product because they typically change daily and it’s a violation of their TOS. That’s why it’s always listed as ‘Buy on Amazon’ instead of the price like the other items. I apologize for that confusion but I prefer to play by the rules, my dudes.
