While we wouldn’t go so far as to actually personify our gear, we do think there’s a hierarchy of what should be closest to your heart. Put simply, the items you turn to the most are kind of like your utilitarian best friends. And, like friends, if your everyday carry gear is letting you down, it might just be time to upgrade it to a loadout that will serve you better in the long run. If this is sounding to you like it’s hitting close to home, you might want to have a look at this week’s blue-hued pocket dump. All the pieces here are handsome, reliable, and built to last for a very long time. They won’t let you down and, so long as you remember to stick them in your pockets, they’ll always be by your side.
