This collection of 2021’s best everyday carry essentials for guys is all about stylish and rugged gear that’s built to last and look great along the way. I’ve picked some everyday carry items from pocket knives to multi-tools along with highly functional everyday apparel. You can purchase any of these EDC items by following the links below!

First up today is the Seiko 5 Sports Watch ($335) which is powered by an Automatic Caliber 4R36 movement and water-resistant up to 100 meters. This is a sport watch with the aesthetics of a field watch and it powers itself using the natural motion of your wrist so as long as you wear it your watch stays juiced up.

These Nisolo Emilio Chukka Boots ($143) are on sale today and marked down from their usual $160 price tag. They are handmade but expert leather craftsmen in Peru and lined with sheepskin leather for enhanced comfort, a hallmark feature of the best boots around. These boots feature a full-length soft sheep leather insole, a durable outsole, and they’re stylish for everyday wear across all of your outfits.

The Mollusk Whale Patch Pullover ($72) is a comfy hoodie which you can wear as loungewear around the house or in everyday life. This hoodie embodies iconic Nor-Cal Surf Style and the soft terry loop knit fabric feels great.

You can pair that hoodie with the Flint and Tinder Stretch Selvage Denim Jeans ($168) which come in Slim, Straight, or Tapered. These jeans are cut from durable 13.4 oz denim fabric and have an added 1% spandex in the fabric blend to give them just the perfect amount of stretch and comfort.

Next up is The Elko EDC Pocket Knife ($70) from The James Brand which is made with 416 stainless steel, black oxidized hardware, phosphor bronze washers and has a blade constructed out of Carpenter CTS-BD1 steel with high hardness, good wear resistance, and excellent edge retention. As far as everyday carry goes it’s hard to top this if you’re looking for a compact knife.

Up next we’ve got The Mehlville Carabiner in Brass ($75) in Brass. I’ve featured this EDC tool in Black and Silver Stainless before the Brass is new and immediately caught my attention. It has a bottle opener notch, is machined from a solid block of brass, and is incredibly lightweight so it will never weigh down your pockets. The precision carabiner gate is easy to open and close with action as smooth as butter.

This KeySmart MultiTool – 4-in-1 Keychain Tool [$10] includes a box cutter, phillips head screwdriver, flat head screwdriver, pry bar. This is a perfect everyday carry tool that will only run you $10 and it fits neatly on your keychain.

The Ridge Carbon Fiber Wallet + Cash Plate ($125) is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts because of how lightweight it is and the superior craftsmanship. This minimalist wallet holds between 1-12 cards and has an elastic cash strap to hold all of your bills. This wallet only weighs 1.7oz which is unbelievably light compared to the competition.

We round it out today with the Jaybird Tarah Pro Headphones [$130] which are waterproof + sweatproof and ideal for working out. They have a 14-hour rechargeable battery which also makes them excellent headphones for your daily commute and travel. These provide world-class sound and you can workout as hard as you’d ever want to in them.

Last up is the YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle Chug Top ($30) 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!
