I am stoked to be back with you gentlemen today, once again sharing a unique collection of the best everyday carry essentials for men, all of which have been hand-selected by yours truly. You work hard, you deserve nice things, so go ahead and treat yourself to some new gear! You can shop the full collection or pick and choose your favorites.

First up on the left, we see ‘The Rogue’ in Silver + Black from Vincero Watches which is a sick timepiece made with a silver 316L Surgical Grade Stainless Steel case, Seiko Mecha-Quartz Movement, Italian Marble Showcase caseback, and it’s water-resistant up to 330-feet.

Below that is the Olukai Hawai’Ilao Manu Ihu, one of my favorite Olukai shoes out there right now. This is a terrain-tested boot-shoe hybrid with a soft nubuck leather upper that’s easy to walk in all day long. It packs a lightweight compression-molded EVA midsole and a single-density poured PU anatomical footbed with a soft microfiber cover so you feel like you are walking around in a cloud. Seriously, these are excellent.

On the top right side of that grid above, we see a very special limited-release from a Budweiser x Highly Clutch collaboration. The Moon Life Astronaut Tri-Blend Tee pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the NASA Moon Landing with custom artwork.

You can pair that shirt with the Flint and Tinder 1-Year Wash Jeans, made from a 12oz custom-designed Cone Mills that also has a 1% stretch added for extreme comfort. These are cut, sewn, and washed in Los Angeles.

Moving on, we check out the Fjällräven Vardag Backpack. This bag’s made from their signature G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco S fabric which is constructed out of recycled polyester and organic cotton. This bag has an internal 15″ laptop sleeve, 25-liters of internal storage, a full-body zipper for easy access, and it’s comfortable for everyday use.

Next is a truly spectacular pocket knife for everyday carry. The Mikov Diamond-like Carbon Coated Pocket Knife was the winner of the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for its attention to detail and quality, which truly sets this knife apart from the industry. The handle is made from 420-grade stainless steel. It is covered in a diamond-patterned carbon coating with high surface tension to keep dirt and debris away so the blade and handle remain sharp AF and clean.

Moving on, we check out the Wazoo Survival Gear Survival Pod which is equal parts survival tool and keychain. It is made with heavy duty type III commercial 550 paracord. The keychain goes in your pocket or you can latch it onto your backpack.

The classic Fisher Bullet Space Pen was designed back in 1948 and was built to write under any conditions (wet or dry, upside down, etc). This pen is made in the USA, takes refillable pressurized cartridges, and ships in a heavy-duty gift box.

Finishing it off today, we see the Hydro Flask 24 oz. Insulated Water Bottle. This holds the equivalent of two cans of beer and will keep you hydrated all day long. This is perfect for everyday use, hiking, bringing to work, etc. Their proprietary powder coating makes it easy to hold and consistent throughout.

Lastly, we marvel at the Madera Poquito Cherry Wood Slim Wallet. This is a remarkably thin wallet that puts your typical wallet to shame. It looks great, is really strong, holds between 2-8 cards, and has a cash strap for the additional card + cash storage.

As always, you can pick and choose your favorite items from the list above or you can scoop the entire collection as you see it and REALLY treat yourself. If you have any accessories or apparel that you believe deserves to be featured here you can always hit me up on Twitter at @casspa or email at cass@brobible.com.

I’m sure most of you have realized this by now, but I publish a new edition of the ‘Everyday Carry‘ essentials roundup Monday through Thursday here at BroBible with the ‘Things We Want‘ gear guide going out on Fridays. If you know of a product that should be featured here you can hit me up on email at cass@brobible.com, or find me on Twitter at @casspa. Or if you’ve got an idea for a daily theme I should touch on then hit me up!

I’m sure you’ve noticed by now but I can’t list the prices for an Amazon product because they typically change daily and it’s a violation of their TOS. That’s why it’s always listed as ‘Buy on Amazon’ instead of the price like the other items. I apologize for that confusion but I prefer to play by the rules, my dudes.
