best everyday carry items for quick trips traveling essentials

It’s that time of year when the cold weather begins to play tricks on everyone’s brain. The walls are creeping in. We just want to get away for a night or two. And for those trips I thought I’d throw together this collection of the best everyday carry essentials for a weekend away.

As is always the case with my everyday carry roundups, you can shop the full collection or pick and choose your favorites by following any of the links below.

Up first today, we check out the Jack Mason Diver Watch which is water-resistant up to 300 meters and pays tribute to the classic Diver Watch style that has made it one of the most iconic looks throughout the years. The watchface is protected by scratch and shatter-resistant mineral glass crystal and this watch runs on an extremely reliable Japanese-made quartz movement that requires practically zero attention.

The Lems Shoes Boulder Chukka is such a clutch shoe for traveling. They are rollable and packable in construction so you can easily tuck them into any bag if you’re not wearing them. They have a removable moisture-wicking PU insole that’s incredibly comfortable and the LemsRubber air-injected rubber outsole provides superior traction while keeping the shoe lightweight and durable. Also, they just look pretty damn good, don’t they?

The Wellen Slub Flannel in Yellow + Blue Plaid uses 100% organic cotton that has a soft and loose textured feel. There is a low chest pocket, twill tape at the placket, collar, and yoke for a super clean finish. And this shirt looks excellent in all the colorways.

You can pair that shirt with the Flint and Tinder Garment Dyed Jeans in Olive which are currently on sale for $93 instead of the usual $118. These jeans are made in the USA with a built-in stretch that will give you a full range of mobility. You can wear these for days on end without feeling grimy but I do that with every pair of jeans I own, so there’s that….

Next up, we check out a unique everyday carry pocket knife from Deejo Knives which features a dope custom 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.

Up next we’ve got Fulton & Roark solid fragrances. The Solid Fragrance Sample Pack (only $16) includes 8 premium fragrances which enables you to familiarize yourself with these stellar scents. They apply much more evenly than typical fragrances and last longer. These are ideal for staying fresh after working out and they’re more portable than typical cologne because you don’t have to worry about a glass bottle shattering.

The USA Made X-Pac Weekender Backpack from North St. Bags is a perfect bag to pack up for the weekend and/or use as a carry-on whenever you’re traveling. This 28-liter bag has an extremely water-resistant construction to keep all of your gear and apparel dry. The rugged X10 fabric is constructed from a heavy-duty duck canvas that’s backed with waterproof X-Pac™️ sailcloth. This bag has every pocket you need including the massive main pocket, side pockets, accessories pockets, water bottle pocket, and more as well as a central base of gravity so it doesn’t fall over all the time. This bag’s handcrafted in Portland and one of the finest around.

The OtterBox Elevation 20 Tumbler comes in stainless steel with an internal copper lining that ensures your cold drinks stay ice cold and your hot drinks stay warm all day. This tumbler is sweat-resistant meaning it won’t leave any sweat marks/stains on your wood tables.

We round it out today with the Tactica M.100 – 17-in-1 Multi-Tool which is a TSA-compliant multi-tool that has magnetic bit retention that’s said to talk around half of your toolbox and shrink it down into a tiny pocket tool. It’s lightweight, has an integrated hex socket for ergonomic driving, and more. This is a clutch daily pocket tool and/or one to keep tucked in your bag for when you need it.

Last up is the Andar ‘Apollo’ 6 Card Wallet + Money Clip. This wallet’s made from a premium full-grain leather that has streamlined out all of the bulk so you can maximize pocket space while taking advantage of the most wallet possible. It is RFID-blocking, holds up to 10 cards, has an ID pocket, and plenty of room for all of your cash.
