What is ‘Everyday Carry’? And how it’ll change your life!
We’re a bunch of like minded folk, navigating our way through the week in the big smoke until we can break free and head out on an adventure at the weekend. And whilst we love what city life offers, the daily grind can be a struggle. When we were first introduced to Everyday Carry a couple of years ago whilst on a buying trip to the mighty USA, we were sold instantly! It changed the game forever…
Everyday Carry is made up of items and products that help with everyday, modern life – no matter where you are or what you’re faced with. They’re pieces of true innovation and design, that offer a solution for an everyday problem.
“They’re the things you tap your pockets for before you head out the door, the things you feel naked without, and the things that would throw off your whole day if you had to do without them. They are valuable not just in a monetary or sentimental way; your everyday carry is comprised of items that you find truly essential. Mainstays in your carry should have certain qualities that fall in line with the principles of utility and preparedness. Each component of your EDC should serve a purpose or have at least one specific, useful function.” – The Art Of Manliness
From the urban jungle to the great outdoors, they’re products for life that make a real difference. Whether that’s slimming your pockets and ridding them of that ridiculously heavy wallet or a solution to rid you of constantly tangled headphones. We’ve curated a fine selection of Everyday Carry items that will change your day-to-day adventures forever!
As an introduction, let us show some of our all-time favourites!
That’s it… no more tangled wires. EVER! Superbly crafted and ingeniously designed cable tidy by This Is Ground. The Cord Taco Supreme includes 3 large sized cable tacos and 2 regular sized cable tacos, all made from 100% soft real leather.
We’ve all done it – carrying around a ridiculously oversized wallet full of receipts and business cards that you’ll never use! This superlatively slim wallet is perfect for everyday use with two quick access card slots, and a pull tab that gives access to cards you use less regularly. Whilst you will need to fold your notes to fit them in, this allows the wallet to be extremely thin.
Coffee lover? So are we! This pocket barista is simply insane… enjoy a delicious espresso quickly and easily. Its internal semi-automatic piston unlocks from its carrying position and you press this to control the amount of extracted coffee. Small quantities of water are injected into the coffee adapter and after a few pushes, optimal extraction pressure is achieved and a rich, bold espresso is extracted. The GR addition uses ground coffee and the NS uses Nespresso pods.
This nifty travel cup is in a league of its own when it comes to portable coffee cups. This cup was designed to limit the wastage from disposable coffee cups. They created a travel mug that would be super compact, leak-proof and simple to use. t is made of recycled materials, is BPA free and contains no phthalates or glues. The design is uniquely innovative as the body is made of durable mouldable food grade silicone and can be collapsed down to a two-inch disc. It can then be stowed in a bag or even pocket when you’re on the go.
If you can’t stand rattling keys or they are always scratching your electronic devices whilst in transit, then the Orbitkey is a must have. It will transform your cluster of keys into a neatly organised stack and can accommodate between 2-7 keys or accessories. It is made of premium leather and has coated edges and double sided leather for extra strength. It is silent, perfect for exercise lovers and for those who can’t stand their keys constantly jingling.
In essence, we want to make your lives easier by bringing you the most interesting and useful new gear sourced from all over the world, it is with thanks to all of the fine innovators, artisans and designers who make what we do possible.
