This personally curated roundup of 2021’s best everyday carry essentials for men is here to help you live each and every day a little bit better. It includes some EDC tools, gadgets, as well as apparel so that you can take the guesswork out of being prepared for life’s twists and turns.

First up today is the G-Shock GM5600B-3 Watch ($200) which is part of their classic DW-5600 series with stainless steel added for a sharp new look. This watch is a BEAST. It is resistant against electric shock, gravity, low temperatures, vibration, water, and impact. It will hold up to anything you throw its way and look great every single day.

The All-Weather Duckboot ($188) are CLUTCH this time of year. In fact, they’re a necessary pair of boots to have all year long. What I love the most about these is how they’re 100% waterproof but they’re also comfortable and look stylish when you tuck your jeans over the top. Unless you live in a state that doesn’t really have seasons then you need a pair of these to make it through Winter and Spring.

The Wax London Whitham Coach Jacket ($285) is an eye-catching mid-to-lightweight jacket that’s made in London. What I love about the versatility of this jacket is how it borders on both High Fashion and throwback Rocky Mountain style. The unique fabric comes from a century-old mill in France at the forefront of sustainable textiles and you can easily wear it over a t-shirt, sweater, buttondown, or whatever you choose.

You can pair that jacket with the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants ($98) which comes in 15 different colors and are perfect everyday pants. Even if jeans are your preferred style you’re going to love how these chinos frame your lower half. And they’re sold in every length x waist configuration you’re looking for.

Here we have the Leatherman Rebar Multi-Tool With Heritage Sheath ($79) which has SEVENTEEN TOOLS tucked into this awesome everyday carry multi-tool. Leatherman is the best. That’s the pitch. I’ve had a Leatherman since I was in the Cub Scouts. They last a lifetime. They’re better than the competition. And they’re reasonably priced. This is a perfect everyday carry tool to keep with you at all times, tuck in the truck, backpack, or toolbox.

The Todder Nickel Matte Finish Carabiner ($15) is on sale for just fifteen bucks. This is a durable brass carabiner built for everyday use that you can tuck onto your belt loop, backpack, and/or use as a keychain if you prefer. It is made from sand-casted solid brass with a matte nickel finish.

The all-new Flint and Tinder Leather Card Wallet ($50) is a stitched leather option with 4 card slots. The all-leather construction is designed to develop a gorgeous patina as it ages and the slim design is perfect for conserving pocket space. If you are still carrying around a bi-fold then it’s time to ditch that and get with the slim wallet lifestyle ASAP.

It’s the perfect time to treat yourself to some of the finer things in life and you’ll be hard-pressed to find better leather gloves than the Hestra Utsjö Gloves – Elk/Fleece ($165). These are made from supple Nordic elk leather with Primaloft polyester insulation and a fleece lining to keep your hands comfortable and warm. If you want to elevate your EDC collection then you can start right here.

We round it out today with the YETI Rambler 26oz Bottle Chug Top ($40) which is the exact bottle I drink from every single day to stay hydrated. For whatever reason, I find I drink more water out of this bottle than any other one that I’ve ever owned. If you’re on the boat all day in the hot sun you’ll want to stay hydrated with this excellent bottle!

Last up is the reinforced Sandqvist Erland Lightweight 12L Ziptop Backpack ($130) for everyday use. This bag is constructed out of 100% recycled ripstop nylon, features a 13″ laptop pocket, has EDC pockets throughout, and it packs down to fit into its own pocket. If you plan on staying active in 2021 you’ll want a backpack like this to withstand anything you throw at it.
