When you are searching for gear which is just the right fit for you, it is not always going to be just about the specifications of the gear entirely.
The smaller and seemingly insignificant aspects of your gear and its accessories can also be some of the most important and you might not realize it. Something as simple as a pocket clip can actually be more important than you would think. A pocket clip, or lack thereof can really make a difference in how you carry your gear arround.
Below you will read everything you need to know about pocket clips.
The perfect clip, placed in the right manner on your gear can make it easier for you to retrieve your gear and can make carrying it more convenient for your usage. If you have a bad clip installed on your gear, it can become so inconvenient for you that you might actually consider not carrying it with you anymore. The wrong kind of clip on your gear makes it difficult to retrieve the gear and decrease its utility.
The pocket clip that you use can essentially change the very way you utilize your tool itself. If you have been using pocket knives a lot, you will probably have heard of the term ‘hotspot’. It basically refers to when the clip on your pocket knife tends to make a mark on your hand when you are handling the tool over a period of time.
The clips also are quite relevant in terms of laws regulating carrying knives. Certain states do not allow for an individual to carry a knife that’s completely or partially visible. In cases like that, there are pocket clips which allow for a knife to be completely concealed in your pocket. And then there’s also the fact that when you have your knife clipped to your pocket, you won’t have to waste a lot of time trying to look for it.
