10 Of The Best Everyday Carry Essentials For Men That Will Last

best everyday carry gear that lasts

Looking to treat yourself to some new EDC items? This collection of the best everyday carry gear for men is full of top-shelf accessories and apparel that are built to last. First up is the Laco Aachen 42 Watch. This German-made watch is powered by an automatic Japanese mechanical movement that powers itself using the natural motion of your wrist. Below that are the OluKai Kahu I’li Slip-ons which are some of my favorite Summer 2019 shoes. The dual-density anatomical PU footbed comes with a gel insert and the end result is the most comfortable shoes around.

In the center, we see the Highly Clutch Vintage Red Tri-Blend Tee. This is an absolute STEAL at this price and that price gets even better when you buy the 5-pack of Vintage Tri-Blend tees for only $59. You can pair your new favorite t-shirt (or shirts) with the Banks Journal Havana Walkshort.

On the top right, we take a look at 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. Next to those shades is the Gerber Paraframe Mini Knife which is on sale today on Amazon. Moving on, we feast our eyes on the 16-in-1 Multitool Card Wallet Tool. This credit card multi-tool is full of screwdrivers, wrenches, and more. It’s LOADED full of useful tools ofr a survival situation.

Next to that credit card multi-tool is the Tanner Goods Journeyman Wallet which is handmade in the USA. This minimalist leather card wallet has a pocket for cash + additional cards and it’s constructed out of 3.5 oz premium tooling leather.

On the bottom right, we see the Hydro Flask Hydration Pack 20L which is marked down $60 right now. This hydration pack will keep your water ice-cold for hours and it will keep you hydrated on the trails, boat, at the beach, or at a music festival. It’s hard to overstate how clutch it is to have one of these hydration packs. Lastly, we look at the Rustico Tornado Pen & Pencil Set which you can use to jot down all of your thoughts as you navigate the daily world.
