First up, we see this custom Lum-Tec Combat B44-H GMT x Huckberry collaboration on one of my all-time favorite watch styles. Lum-Tec watches are built for a life in the field and that guiding design element is present in every aspect. The 43mm 316L stainless steel case has a matte finish that’s built to last a lifetime. This watch is water-resistant up to 650-feet deep, runs on a low-maintenance Swiss Ronda 515.24 quartz movement, and it has a classic Yellow GMT hand to mark Greenwich Meridian Time. This watch is designed, assembled, and tested right here in the USA.

If you’re looking to treat yourself to a pair of the finest boots around then look no further than the White’s Boots MP-M1 in British Tan CXL. These boots are crafted using a handsewn stitchdown construction which is a process passed down by their bootmakers since 1853. Each pair is handsewn by a master bootmaker and it is built to last a lifetime. The MP-M1 boot pays tribute to White’s Boots history of making boots for military forces throughout the years and this model draws inspiration from WWII infantry boots.

The Relwen Shag Fleece Zip Hood comes in three colorways and here we see it in Navy. I’ve featured this shag fleece in the past because it’s truly one of the most comfortable layers money can buy. It has side pockets (for your hands) and a single chest zippered pocket for your EDC essentials. This piece is garment-washed before shipping to give you maximum softness. It feels like you’re wearing a tailored-fit soft blanket, it’s that good.

You can pair that hoodie with the Flint and Tinder 1-Year Wash Jeans, your new favorite pair of denim jeans. They come in every Length x Waist configuration you’re looking for and they’re cut, sewn, and washed in Los Angeles, California. These comfy jeans have a 1% stretch built-in to give you a smooth motion and the 12oz custom-designed Cone Mills Denim is some of the finest in the world.

The Benchmade Bugout Serrated Knife is currently on sale for $119 when it typically goes for $140. This everyday carry pocket knife features a 3.24″ blade constructed out of high-quality CPM-S30V stainless steel. The custom-made G10 handle ensures this knife will never slip in your hands as it provides the best grip around. At only 52g, this is one of the lightest top-end EDC pocket knives around and it’s American-made in Oregon.

The Micro USB NomadKey is a MicroUSB cable that’s been cut in the shape of a house key so you can easily carry it on your keychain and always have this handy tool with you for syncing/charging your MicroUSB devices from any USB port. This is a clutch everyday carry tool for connected guys that won’t take up any unnecessary pocket space and will be there for you when you need it.

The Jaybird Tarah Pro Earphones are super versatile because they pack some of the best sound quality on the market while also being water and sweat-proof in construction. So you can use these as your daily earphones or as workout earphones. They have a 14-hour (rechargeable) battery that gives you a full 2-hours of playback on only five minutes of charging!

The Bellroy Micro Pen in Gunmetal is a perfect everyday carry pen due to its size. It is a perfect travel companion as it tucks neatly into a notebook, wallet, or pocket. This pen has a smooth ballpoint tip and comes with a black ink cartridge refill.

You can use that pen to fill these Field Notes Original Ruled notebooks (3-Pack). These compact notebooks are here to help you keep your life organized by writing down anything and everything that pops into your head. From schedules to lists to business pitch ideas to sketches, these are always good to have on hand.

2020's best everyday carry items for men

The Aer Fit Pack 2 backpack is an all-time favorite of mine. I’ve had an Aer Fit Pack 2 for years and I’ve traveled the world with it. It has a super handy zippered pocket at the bottom for your shoes as well as a massive central compartment. I often use this as my carry-on bag for flights. It also has a laptop sleeve and pockets throughout for everything you need to store.

Last up today is the Tanner Goods Journeyman Wallet which is handmade right here in the USA. It has a central cash pocket to hold all of your bills as well as four card slots for your credit cards + ID. This wallet’s built from 3.5oz premium tooling leather and it features an olive foliage design that looks great up close.
