Everyday Carry: Expedition

Published By

Whether you’re going on an adventure of scientific research or rugged exploration, any expedition calls for EDC that’s especially strong and especially adaptable. If your tool watch can’t survive an impromptu river crossing, leave it at home. While all everyday carry should be durable, portable, and easy to use, the gear we’ve curated today takes it to the next level.

Doxa Sub 300 Professional

Every practical feature that makes the COSC-certified Doxa Sub 300 an unshakable professional watch, is also what makes it visually distinguished. The radar-like orange dial provides brightness and legibility, while the edge-blurred sapphire is scratch-resistant. Aside from being delightfully retro, the beads-of-rice bracelet and cushion case provide security and comfort.

Tactile Turn Standard Side Click Pen

Tactile Turn Standard Side Click Pen

Any expedition requires your EDC to be strong but light, and the Standard Side Click Pens by Tactile Turn feature such constructions—especially the titanium one. These USA-made, lifetime-backed pens are a touch more ergonomic because of the side clicker. Each colorway has a unique offering, like the antimicrobial copper version or the patinating bronze.

Field Notes Expedition Notebook

Field Notes Expedition Notebook

The Field Notes Expedition Notebook boasts waterproof and tearproof paper, perfect for documenting travel notes whether you’re on the river or in the desert. Since this paper has a higher chance of surviving a tropical storm than your smartphone does, you might want to consider the Expedition Notebook over your notes app for your next adventure.

The James Brand Redstone Knife

The James Brand Redstone Knife

Small but mighty, the trail-ready Redstone Knife from James Brand is an innovation in mini-tool design. They’ve implemented an “island” for your finger to rest between, giving you effective and safe grip, previously unseen in a handle this portable. And despite the size of the blade, it’s sharp, strong, and built from Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel, known for its edge retention.
