50 ‘Things We Want’ This Week: Performance And Activewear, Everyday Carry Gear, And More

50 things we want gear guide

How are we doing today, gentlemen? With another week of hard work in the books it is now time to treat ourselves to some retail therapy. That’s why I spend hours upon hours each week putting together the ‘Things We Want‘ gear guide for men, so you can buy the best.

This way you have direct access to the hottest gear for men. If you’ve been reading the ‘Things We Want’ for yours then you’ll notice the new look design which is meant to fit more with the style of my daily Everyday Carry Essentials features.

After years of tweaking the format of this weekly gear guide, I’ve found that you bros tend to love the grid-style pictures the best so that’s why I’ve been trying to include more of these days. As always, if you know of a product that you think should be featured in my weekly Gear Guide then feel free to hit me up via email at cass@brobible.com.

Mizzen+Main Performance Vests

As any dude who has ever owned a vest knows, it’s all about layering this time of year. For that reason, Mizzen+Main‘s new performance vest focused on keeping the substance without all the bulkiness, meaning their vest is ideal for an evening stroll around the city, a date night out to pair with a Mizzen+Main button-down, a college football Saturday or wearing while traveling around the globe for all those fall trips.

I’ve been onboard with Mizzen+Main releases for years. Their shirts were a revelation for me. And to see what they’ve done disrupting the performance vests market already is incredible. These are second to none.

As a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan, if you would’ve told me six months ago that the Jacksonville Jaguars would be the hottest and most likable Florida team in the NFl I’d have thought you were full of shit but here we are. The Legend of the ‘Jock Strap King‘ is growing by the day and that dude is picking up fans by the millions.

This premium tri-blend tee is a quality blend of 50% poly, 25% cotton, and 25% rayon for a super comfortable feel on your body. This might become your favorite shirt overnight. Scoop it now for $24.99 before this limited-edition shirt sells out FAST and will be gone forever.


YETI ‘Crossroads’ Tote + Backpack

YETI crossroads backpack and tote

YETI’s killing it with their new Crossrides line of functional daily bags. The YETI Crossroads Backpack 23 which is easily my favorite new backpack of 2019. I got hands-on with this backpack (in black) recently and I went into it thinking YETI specializes in Coolers + Tumblers so this wouldn’t be a hit but I couldn’t have been more wrong. It has 23-liters of space for all of your gear, and it’s made from a 1000D Nylon that is lined with 420D Nylon ripstop so it’s as durable as it is comfortable in fit.

The YETI Crossroads Tote 16 is constructed from a 1000D Nylon material and it’s lined with 420D Nylon ripstop. There’s simply nothing else on the market like this if you’re looking for a very durable and functional daily tote bag. The 16-liter capacity has laptop and tablet pockets as well as collapsible interior pockets for water bottles and other things of that nature (in addition to the massive center space). Check ’em out on YETI’s site at the link below!

The Lululemon Surge Jogger pants are amazing. Truly, I’m a massive fan. I’ve worn these to work out, to spin classes, on the golf course, and I shit you not I was wearing these pants in the delivery room when my son was born. They’re perfect for working out but also for those times when you want to be as comfortable as possible.

6 Lightweight Jackets For This Time Of Year

best men's lightweight jackets for Fall Winter and Spring

These are lightweight jackets you can wear every day, when you’re hiking, to and fron the gym, on the way to the bar, tailgating, and everywhere else in life because their extremely versatile in nature (and stylish).

The Ball and Buck Active Anorak in Charcoal is a personal favorite of mine. I’ve loved the all-American made brand Ball and Buck for years and this Active Anorak is proof of their superior craftsmanship. This jacket is lightweight, packable, features Vapor Dry fabric, Water Repellent 3.4oz Nylon Taslan. It is loaded with all the pockets you’d ever need but they’re tucked away in ways that don’t overshadow the jacket itself.

Smart and Stylish Everyday Gear

The Mizzen + Main “Hendricks” Vest in Navy Heather is the Bugatti of vests. The quilting texture is specifically engineered to absorb your body heat in cooler temperatures and keep you comfortable. This vest is wind-resistant and ultra-soft on the body. I’ve been a Mizzen+Main fan for years, they’ve made half of the dress shirts in my closet. I didn’t think they could top their superior craftsmanship but they’ve really taken it to the next level with these vests.

You can pair that vest with the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants which come in 8 different colors, one for every occasion. They are cut like a jean but have the look and feel of a chino with the stretch of a performance pant (98% cotton + 2% spandex). The 8oz blended fabric is ideal for wearing all year long.

Let’s get right into it with he ‘The Rogue’ in Brushed Silver from Vincero Watches which is a limited release watch with a 43mm diameter face, silver 316L Surgical Grade Stainless Steel case, and it is powered by a Seiko-Mecha Quartz movement. Overall, this watch is just stunning. At this price point, it’s a no-brainer.

Below that watch, we see the Truman Boot Co. Service Boot in Bronze Brown Leather which is an exclusive colorway that you can only pick up at Huckberry. The uppers on these boots are constructed of top-tier leather from Charles F. Stead tannery in Leeds, UK and the boots themselves are handmade by skilled artisans in Eugene, Oregon.

6 of the Best CBD Products For Athletic Recovery

10 Of The Best CBD Products For Pain And Athletic Recovery

The Nanocraft CBD Energy + Recovery Powder is ideal if you’re the tpe of person who would prefer sprinkling a little bit of powder in yoru morning shake (or coffee) instead of a salve or stick. The Pure Naturals CBD Extra Strength Sport Cream is a hard-hitting formula with 500mg of CBD in the 1.7oz container. I’m a huge proponent of this one for overnight pain relief from working out. The Rebel Morning Boost Formula gives you 1,000mg of full-spectrum CBD with lemon zest flavor in a liquid dropper that’s easy to take on the go.

The Common Ground Recover CBD offers up quick relief from a compact rub. I love the ease of use you’ll get with the Nanocraft CBD Pain Salve Stick because you can apply without getting messy. The Elite Dose CBD Oils with Caffeine provides 1,500mg of CBD with a little bit of caffeine in there to help spike your energy each day!

This special edition Budweiser Discovery Reserve + Highly Clutch collab was born from Budweiser’s limited edition  Discovery Reserve,  a Budweiser Reserve collection beer that debuted earlier this summer.

An American red lager, it features a light hoppy aroma with a toasted barley malt taste, a hint of toffee and a sharp finish. Budweiser Discovery Reserve was brewed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first successful mission to the moon on July 20th, 1969, complete with a taste inspired by an archival recipe from that time in history.

You can now buy the collection via Highly Clutch, commemorating today’s 50th anniversary of the lunar landing. Just hit the ‘shop now’ link below and scoop yours before they’re gone!
