10 Everyday Carry Essentials: Happy Hour Hero

best everyday carry gear for men 2019

Summer is PEAK Happy Hour SZN and in this collection of the best everyday carry gear for men I thought we’d look at a capsule tailored towards tossing a few back. We kick if off with a set of premium glasses, the Terrane Modern Snifter Set of 2, which is made in Spruce Pine, North Carolina and perfectly engineered for drinking whiskey straight or on the rocks.

On the bottom left we see the recently released Laphroaig Cairdeas Triple Wood Cask Strength which is an expression I’ve been looking forward to since last year’s Laphroaig Cairdeas release. ‘Cairdeas’ means friendship in Gaelic, and this annual release from Laphroaig’s Distillery Manager celebrates exactly that. This year’s expression is bottled at 59.5% ABV (119 proof) and is full-bodied with notes of toffee, praline, black pepper, cedarwood, and a caramel finish. This is a spirit you DON’T want to miss out on this Summer if you’re a fan of Islay single malts (and/or Laphroaig in general).

In the center, we’ve got the USA Drinking Team Triblend Tee which will fit comfortably and stylishly with your new Revtown USA Jeans. These are some of the best jeans you’ll find anywhere and they’re an absolute steal at that price point. They also come in an array of colors and fits for you to choose from.

Over on the top left, we begin with the timeless Christopher Cloos ‘Passable – Espresso’ Sunglasses. This classic design feature a round but minimalistic shape with polarized CR39 lenses, gold engravings, durable and flexible hinges, and they come with a signature leather case + cleaning cloth. To the right is the Spyderco Byrd Hawkbill Knife which you can use for carving up limes for cocktails and/or everyday carry (which it’s perfect for). Moving down a line, we see the Autodromo Group B Series 2 Watch. This world-class timepiece is powered by an insanely precise Japanese-made Miyota 9015 automatic movement which winds itself and powers the watch using the natural movement of your wrist.

To the right of that watch we’ve got the Quoddy Tender Boat Shoe which are made in Lewiston, Maine and are some of the finest boat shoes ever made. Follow that link for full specs. We finish it off today with the Teroforma Whiskey Stones so you can chill your whiskey without watering it down and the Katin ‘Droopy No Prob’ Hat to keep the sun out of your eyes during Happy Hour at the tiki bar.
