We are going to jump right into this hand-picked collection of the best everyday carry gear for men. This curated selection of EDC’s finest was chosen by yours truly and is all about that Smart and Stylish look a lot of guys aim for in everyday life while maintaining as much utility and premium craftsmanship as possible.

First up, we see the The Rogue in Cobalt Blue which is a stunning timepiece from Vincero Watches that is perfect for everyday wear. It has a smart look that’s ideal in an office setting, first date, or on the road. The silver 316L surgical grade steel case is robust and the Seiko Quartz movement is super precise.

The Helm Boots ‘Hollis’ in Natural Leather is a colorway exclusive to Huckberry. The inner lining is a 100% natural leather that’s incredibly comfortable. The upper shell is crafted from full-grain Babbo leather. The white composite rubber midsole provides superior comfort over the competition and the resolable Helm 41 has double and triple reinforced stitching throughout. These boots are the perfect meeting point of function and form. They are stylish on the streets of SoHo but rugged enough to wear on the job site.

The Mizzen + Main “Hendricks” Vest in Navy Heather is the Bugatti of vests. The quilting texture is specifically engineered to absorb your body heat in cooler temperatures and keep you comfortable. This vest is wind-resistant and ultra-soft on the body. I’ve been a Mizzen+Main fan for years, they’ve made half of the dress shirts in my closet. I didn’t think they could top their superior craftsmanship but they’ve really taken it to the next level with these vests.

You can pair that vest with the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants which come in 8 different colors, one for every occasion. They are cut like a jean but have the look and feel of a chino with the stretch of a performance pant (98% cotton + 2% spandex). The 8oz blended fabric is ideal for wearing all year long.

Moving on, we’ve got the The Ridge Wireless Power Bank. This is brilliant for everyday use and it’s an absolute must-have when you’re traveling. It has three inputs (USB-C, Lightning, and Micro USB) so you can use it across your various devices. This is a high-capacity battery at 8,000 mAh and it’s compatible across Apple and Android devices.

the badass SOG Knives Terminus XR for whittling wood by the campfire with its G10 and carbon fiber handle built to last. At just 2.6oz, this pocket knife is super light and won’t ever get in the way. The 2.6″ CTS BDZ1 steel blade is as sharp as they come.

Next, we check out the XD Design Urban Anti-Theft Backpack. This is a brilliantly designed backpack for everyday use and travel. It has a water-resistant exterior that keeps the elements away, rolltop design that allows you to adjust the load size, and a cut-proof construction that will keep would-be intruders out of your stuff. There are hidden RFID-blocking pockets, a 15″ interior laptop pocket, and a 12″ interior tablet pocket. This backpack has everything you’ll need and then some.

The The Craighill Closed Helix Keyring holds 10+ and is made here in the USA at their factory in the Midwest before it’s finished at their studio in Brooklyn. This is a perfect addition to your smart-casual everyday carry collection.

We finish it off today with the WP Standard Small Card Wallet. Thsi wallet’s is perfect for anyone like me who doesn’t want to lug around a large wallet in their pocket. This slim-profile full-grain leather card wallet develops a gorgeous patina over time and it’s reinforced with super tough nylon thread to stay strong throughout.

The Purist Collective Mover 18oz Union Top is here to keep you hydrated all day long. Water from this bottle tastes A LOT better than what you’re probably used to now thanks to the unbreakable glass interior finish.

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.
