10 Everyday Carry Essentials: Wet Weather

best 2019 everyday carry gear

What is up, BroBible! Did you miss me? Did you even notice I was gone? Well, I’m back and since it’s raining cats and dogs outside right now I figured today was as good of a time as any to load up on some of the best 2019 everyday carry gear to combat wet weather. We kick it off on the top left and begin with the Unimatic U1-EMN Watch which is powered by an impressive Japanese-made Seiko NH35A automatic mechanical movement and coupled with industry-leading Super-LumiNova® C1 luminous paint for low-light legibility and visibility. Below that is the Ripstop Klettersack from Topo Designs made from 200D ripstop nylon which makes it incredibly durable, lightweight, and versatile enough to carry every day to work or on the trails.

Bumping it over to the middle, we start with the Packlight Shell from Relwen. This is a waterproof shell jacket to keep you dry throughout the Spring showers that bring those May flowers. Below that, you NEED to check out this pair of Sharp Denim jeans from Revtown USA which will absolutely blow you away with fit and comfort from the moment you put them on. (Bonus) I also wanted to make mention of Timex’s April Fool’s Day gag, the ’25th Hour’ Watch which is already out of stock but my hunch is it will become an instant collector’s item due to scarcity. They’ve added an hour to the day with this watch and while I’m not always on board with novelty items I do happen to really like this one.

Over on the right, we start with Danner’s flagship Vertigo 917 boots which are waterproof and feature a Vibram® 917 outsole for ultimate traction and balance in wet weather. In the top right corner is a vegetable-tanned leather card wallet from Bellroy. Those are followed by the polarized Kona sunglasses from Roka which sit extra light on your face so you can wear them all day on the boat or at the beach and they’ll never bother you. To the right is the ultimate Leatherman multi-tool in a slick Black Oxide. We finish it off today with one of the absolute best and strongest umbrellas on the market, it’s also light enough to easily tuck into your backpack when it’s not in use and you’ll forget about it. Lastly, there is a sick ‘1954 Catalina Grand Prix’ strapback hat that I absolutely love from Ampal Creative.
