This hand-picked collection of the best everyday carry gear for men is here to help you live your best life by immediately upgrading the apparel, tools, and accessories that you use each and every day. You can pick and choose your favorites or shop the full collection by following any of the links below.

Up first, we see the Mizzen + Main “Belson” Vest in Charcoal Heather. 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. This high-performance vest is built to be worn every day and keep up with your busy lifestyle.

Below that vest we see Tthe ‘Hollis Boot’ by Helm Boots. These were built to live at the intersection of work and play. You can rock these as a stylish dress boot if you’d like or wear them every day as work boots. The interior has a 100% natural leather lining that’s soft on your feet. They are handmade in Brazil and these boots are made with double and triple-reinforced stitching throughout and a resolable heel so you can hold onto them for a lifetime.

You can pair that vest with ‘The Jack’ Shirt by Taylor Stitch which is a stylish year-round shirt that features the brand’s signature button-down collar. The detailed craftsmanship is what sets this shirt apart from the rest, including the double-stitched buttons + buttonholes, rounded cuffs, natural buttons, and complete double-needle felled construction throughout. It is built to look great tucked in or untucked.

The Proof Trek Pant in Charcoal looks like a stylish pair of everyday pants but they’re built as a high-performance pair of pants you can travel the globe, exercise, work, or workout in. The double weave design means less fabric sits on your skin and they provide airflow throughout, which makes them both comfortable and breathable. The 4-way stretch means you can move with ease and the blend of 80% polyamide, 14% micro-polyamide, and 6% elastic—190 gsm makes these one of the best pairs of pants around.

Up next we’ve got the Opinel No. 8 Ebony Ellipse Pocket Knife. This is a super limited edition and each one is engraved with a corresponding number signifying which batch it’s from. The Opinel No. 8 is one of the most trusted pocket knives around and has been for generations. They are lightweight, insanely sharp, and on this model the ergonomic African ebony wood handle looks amazing.

The D01 Dapper Bifold Wallet is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts. It is made in the USA with top-grain leather, Mil-spec bolts, and has built-in RFID blocking to keep all of your cards safe. It holds up to 12 cards and cash with the silicon cash band.

The Aer Fit Pack 2 is made with a water-resistant 1680D Cordura ballistic nylon exterior that keeps all of your gear protected from the elements. The front-load main compartment is extra large to house your gear and this is a perfect everyday backpack and travel bag. I’ve had an Aer backpack for several years now and swear by it.

If you’re ready to get more organized than ever then you might want to check out the Peak Design Tech Pouch. The according-style design opens and expands for easy access to all of your tech accessories and the Origami-style pockets make incredibly efficient use of the space within. This is a game-changer for personal organization.

We finish it off today with the The James Brand Holcombe Carabiner in Black. This works on a dual compartment locking system for your keys or other EDC gear. At the end of the carabiner, you’ve got an All Things® scraper and flathead screwdriver so this definitely functions as a multi-tool.

Last up are the Jaybird Tarah Pro Earbuds. These are water and sweat-proof in construction and have a lengthy 14-hour battery life so you can pretty much use these to fly across the planet and have enough power. They have an exceptional sound quality and the magnetic construction holds the earbuds together so you don’t get all twisted up.

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.
