This curated collection of the best everyday carry gear for guys has been chosen by yours truly to aid you in your quest to start living your best life this holiday season. I’ve hand-picked both apparel and accessories that will have an immediate positive impact on your daily life.

First up, we see The Rogue in Red + Black by Vincero Watches, a 43mm watch powered by a highly precise Seiko Mecha-Quartz movement. The case is made from matte black 316L surgical grade stainless steel and the strap is top-grain Italian leather. This slick watch can be worn every day and the Italian Marble Showcase caseback is sure to turn some heads.

The Jack Erwin Laight Sneakers are currently on sale and marked down $35 over at Huckberry. These badass minimalist sneakers are handmade in Portugal with an upper constructed out of full-grain calf leather. This sneaker has some of the cleanest lines around and I f’n love it for this Fall and Winter as you mix up your style.

The ‘The Most Wonderful Time’ long sleeve t-shirt from Highly Clutch is perfect for this time of year. You can keep those arms warm with the long sleeves while wearing this shirt in place of an ugly Christmas sweater. Personally, I’ll opt for this t-shirt over an ugly Xmas sweater 10 out of 10 times and this one’s sick. You can check out the rest of the hilarious Highly Clutch Holidays 2019 collection by clicking that link.

Next, we’re looking at the Flint and Tinder Garment Dyed Jeans. These jeans are available in three colorways, and they come in every Waist x Inseam combination you’re looking for which is CLUTCH if you need a popular or rare size. They have a built-in stretch for enhanced mobility and comfort which means they’re about to become your new favorite jeans.

Next, you should 100% layer up with the premium Mizzen + Main “Hendricks” Vest in Navy Heather. The quilting texture is specifically engineered to absorb your body heat in cooler temperatures and keep you comfortable as the weather fluctuates. 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.

Moving on, we check out a unique Deejo Knives pocket knife with a sick blade tattoo. These are some of the most customizable knives on the planet, they are super light, and ideal for everyday carry. They allow you to pick a unique ‘tattoo’ to make the knife your own as well as choosing the blade and handle features.

Sometimes you want everyday carry gear that you really can just beat up and that’s an instance where I live the Recycled Firefighter ‘Leather Rookie’ Wallet. It’s on sale for $18, and at that price point this wallet is a dream. I’m not going to care if I accidentally drop it as I’m pulling it out of my pocket and somehow kick it across the room where it ricochets off the wall and into the sink. I won’t lose sleep over that. The wallet’s exterior and card sleeves are both cut from military surplus boot leather which is fire and water-resistant.

I’ve been a fan of the Matador Pocket Blanket 2.0 ever since it hit the market. I had the original and I also have this version. Basically, it’s a blanket that fits right into your pocket. It packs down to nearly the size of a wallet and can go just about anywhere with you. This is perfect for day hikes, concerts, picnics, etc. It’s just a great option to always have in your backpack or car.

Simply stated, the Fjällräven Keb Hike 20 is everything I look for in a backpack. It’s the proper size for everyday use but large enough to use as a carry-on if I’m hopping on a plane. It is constructed out of Fjällräven’s custom G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco S textile which is built to be extremely abrasion-resistant and durable for outdoor use and wearing in the field. The base and sides of the bag are made from a waterproof Bergshell that will keep all of your gear dry and protected.

Last up is the brilliant Eiger Keychain Flashlight. It’s on sale and marked down $21 today. This powerful keychain flashlight pumps out 114 concentrated lumens using a cool white LED bulb from CREE, the industry’s best LED manufacturer these days. It’s easy to operate with one hand (twist on/off) and the solid brass body looks dope.
