Up first, we have the Mizzen + Main “Belson” Vest in Charcoal Heather which 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.

The New Balance Fresh Foam Crag in Warm Alpaca/Phanton is a sick colorway of a sneaker that I’ve loved since it first debuted. This is a perfect trail running sneaker that’s made with a ‘Fresh Foam’ innovative midsole that’s created from a single piece of foam. This provides a more natural and cushioned ride than any shoe you’re used to. At only 9.7oz these are incredibly lightweight sneakers and won’t hold you back.

The 16.5 micron Merino wool is sourced from New Zealand and the fabric’s engineered to wick moisture, resist odors, and regulate your body temperature.

I am here to tell you gentlemen that you won’t find a more comfortable pair of pants than the Vuori Transit Jogger.

The woven performance fabric has a brushed interior for extra comfort, they’ve got side and rear zip pockets, and other excellent features throughout.

The Bertucci A-2TR Vintage GMT Watch is currently on sale and it’s a total steal. It’s made with Bertucci’s legendary U.S. Patented solid titanium Unibody™ case that’s lightweight and incredibly durable. It runs on a Swiss-made Quartz movement that is extremely dependable and has Swiss Super Luminous hands and markers so you can see this watch in lowlight conditions.

Here we have the Bellroy Transit Backpack which has internal compression straps to help you keep all of your gear securely contained. It’s ideal as a travel bag, gym back, commuter backpack, or carry-on for travel. This backpack meets all carry-on restrictions if you’re an avid traveler.

As always, you can pick and choose your favorite items from the list above or you can scoop the entire collection as you see it and REALLY treat yourself. If you have any accessories or apparel that you believe deserves to be featured here you can always hit me up on Twitter at @casspa or email at cass@brobible.com.

I’m sure most of you have realized this by now, but I publish a new edition of the ‘Everyday Carry‘ essentials roundup Monday through Thursday here at BroBible with the ‘Things We Want‘ gear guide going out on Fridays. If you know of a product that should be featured here you can hit me up on email at cass@brobible.com, or find me on Twitter at @casspa. Or if you’ve got an idea for a daily theme I should touch on then hit me up!

I’m sure you’ve noticed by now but I can’t list the prices for an Amazon product because they typically change daily and it’s a violation of their TOS. That’s why it’s always listed as ‘Buy on Amazon’ instead of the price like the other items. I apologize for that confusion but I prefer to play by the rules, my dudes.
