best everyday carry essentials for men

Did Santa Claus treat you well this year? Do you also have trouble (like I do) spelling Santa Claus because of the Tim Allen movie Santa Clause? If you answered ‘yes’ to the first question then you’re in luck because I’ve personally curated some of the best everyday carry essentials for men so you can put some of that Christmas money to good use. You can pick up any of the pieces you see here by following the links throughout this article!

First up today is the Todd Snyder x Timex Q Bracelet Watch ($179) which is a limited-edition collaboration between Timex and Todd Snyder. This is a perfect watch for everyday wear because you can dress it up or down depending on the occasion as it easily fits with jeans and a sweater or a suit. It features a retro ‘brick link’ bracelet, is water-resistant up to 50 meters, and is powered by a reliable quartz movement.

The SeaVees Mariner Boots in Twilight Blue ($125 – Sale) is a colorway that’s exclusive to Huckberry and a pair of boots I love for year-round wear but particularly the next few months. You can rock these with jeans or chinos and the waterproof suede leather uppers will keep your feet dry. These boots have a gusseted tongue for water resistance, a custom contoured footbed with a soft canvas lining, and a natural gum rubber sole that’s non-marking so you can wear these on the boat if you want.

The Grayers Melville Fleece Knacket ($165) is a comfortable and stylish coat that’s built for layering. It is made from the softest fleece that Grayers makes and has a small rib-knit shawl collar to keep you warm and feel soft and comfortable on the skin. You can rock this with a shirt or sweater underneath and remain comfy and not overheat or get too cold.

You can pair those pants with the Proof Rover Pants (Slim) ($98) which come in Brown, Anthracite, and Olive. These rugged eco-friendly pants are a premium work-style that’s built to withstand anything you throw their way. The gusseted crotch unlocks full mobility and you can rock these all day in comfort.

Here we have the Leatherman Rebar Multi-Tool With Heritage Sheath ($79) which has SEVENTEEN TOOLS tucked into this awesome everyday carry multi-tool. Leatherman is the best. That’s the pitch. I’ve had a Leatherman since I was in the Cub Scouts. They last a lifetime. They’re better than the competition. And they’re reasonably priced. This is a perfect everyday carry tool to keep with you at all times, tuck in the truck, backpack, or toolbox.

Next, we have the Tanner Goods Journeyman Wallet ($65) in ‘Saddle Tan’ leather. I love this slim-profile 3.5oz premium tooling leather wallet with four card slots and a large central pocket for cash. This is made right here in the USA. It also comes in Cognac leather and a few other colorways if you’re looking to match it to your favorite belt or boots.

The Mehlville Carabiner by The James Brand ($60) is a dual-compartment carabiner that’s perfect as an EDC keychain. It is machined from a solid block of aluminum and the anodized finish ensures it won’t break down and corrode like cheaper options. It also has a notch for opening bottles!

Here we’ve got the The Cache River Bit Driver ($60) which is an incredibly handy everyday carry tool to have with you. This is one of those items that’s never nearby when I need it. The low-profile form factor designed specifically for everyday pocket carry and it features lightweight aluminum construction with a durable anodized finish. It has ball bearing pivot for smooth driving action and the magnetic bit attachment point keeps it firmly in place when it’s in use. As I said, this is just a clutch tool to have with you most times.

We round it out today with 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!

Last up is the Aer Fit Pack 2 Backpack ($135) which 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.
