Orange is one of those colors that’s easy to overdo if you’re not careful. But we say, why not overdo it a little with your EDC now and then? Let’s bring a little incandescence to the table.

  1. The DDC Stuff Sheath. ($40)

    This simple leather sheath protects your Field Notes notebook and other bits of paper bouncing around in your pocket. The words emblazoned on the front put it perfectly: “Way Durable • Very Orange”. We wrote a whole review for this thing back in 2014.

    Every sheath comes with a bonus single Field Notes memo book straight from the DDC workshop. You never know what you’re going to get, but you can expect it will be cool.

  2. Lanxivi Jinhao 159 fountain pen. ($10)

    Nothing fancy here — just a very affordable orange fountain pen that feels nice in the hand and writes well enough when it counts. Use it with Diamine’s “Inferno Orange” ink for best effect.

  3. Spigen “Ultra Hybrid” case (in coral) for iPhone XR. ($14)

    Designed to match the coral iPhone XR, this protective case sports a combination of a rigid, durable, and see-through polycarbonate (PC) back and a flexible TPU bumper around the edge. All editions we’ve seen of this case over the years have consistenly ranked among the most popular and highly rated on the market.

  4. Seiko Prospex “Samurai” SRPB97 automatic stainless steel dive watch ($432)

    Wear your love of orange on your slee- er, wrist with this attention-grabbing timepiece. On top of its distinctive looks, this pro-spec stainless steel diver gives you the option of both automatic and hand-winding capabilities, water resistance to 200 meters, LumiBrite glow-in-the-dark hands and markers, a date calendar, a one-way rotating elapsed-timing bezel (with a gorgeous orange accent), and an additional silicone strap.

    This guy’s video review of the near-identical SRPC07 model — basically, the one that ships without the silicone strap — gives some nice closeup views of the watch’s features. There are also lots of awesome photos in Worn & Wound’s review.
