10 Everyday Carry Essentials For A Weekend Away

best everyday carry items weekend away

Do you ever want to pack up in a hurry and get away for a weekend? I sure as shit do. I love quick 2-to-4 night trips to new places and for those times I want to pack as little gear as possible for the trip. That’s why I’ve pulled together this collection of everyday carry items for a weekender. You can shop the full collection or pick and choose your favorites by following any of the links below.

First up is the VAER Watches A5 Automatic watch which runs on a high-quality Japanese-made automatic movement. This watch is assembled by hand in Los Angeles and comes with the sporty silicone strap you see here and a Horween leather strap.

Below that watch, we’ve got the Astorflex Dukeflex Chukka Boots. These comfortable boots are handmade in Northern Italy by the same family that’s been making these boots for SIX generations. The soft European leather is comfortable and these are ready to wear straight out of the box.

It’s a scorcher outside here in Florida and it’s hot pretty much year-round except for the few weeks when we get cold fronts in the Winter. I pretty much live in short sleeves year-round and that’s why I wanted to turn you gentlemen onto Tropical Bros. The Electric Palms Hawaiian Shirt from Tropical Bros is made from a custom ‘super stretch’ Hawaiian fabric. This magnificent party shirt has a moisture-wicking outer shell, wood buttons, a classic front pocket, and it’s machine washable. You can use promo code ‘BROBIBLE’ for 20% off your entire order!

You can pair that shirt with the Flint and Tinder Vintage Overdyed Jeans which come in every length x waistline configuration you’re looking for. These premium jeans are built from a 11½ oz custom-designed Cone Mills denim with a 1% added stretch so you have mobility while keeping the pure feel of a pair of jeans.

The SOG Knives Twitch II is a perfect folding knife for everyday carry. It’s portable, fits easily into your pocket, has a razor sharp 2.6″ blade, and only 200 of these were made so it’s limited edition.

The The Ridge Aluminum Wallet + Money Clip is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts. This no-nonsense slim wallet blocks RFID-skimming devices to keep your sensitive card data secure and it weighs only 2oz so you’ll practically never notice the weight in your pocket.

The North St. Bags USA Made X-Pac Weekender Backpack is a great weekender. It has a highly water-resistant construction to keep all of your gear dry. This bag has a padded 15″ laptop compartment, anti-gravity seams, easy top-loading access, organizer sleeves for your books or gear, a lower compartment for EDC gear, and stowable straps to get you through TSA checkpoints.

Next up is the The Halifax by The James Brand which is constructed of 6AL-4V titanium and 416 stainless steel to last you a lifetime. This 5-in-1 multi-tool has a flathead and philips head screwdriver, bottle opener, pry bar, and all-purpose scraper.

We round it out today with the Trekker Space Pen which is made in the USA and uses a pressurized ink cartridge which ensures this pen can write in any conditions. It has a keychain loop so you can tack it on anywhere (backpack, belt loop, briefcase, etc.).

Last up is the OtterBox Elevation 20 Tumbler. It comes in stainless steel with an internal copper lining that ensures your cold drinks stay ice cold and your hot drinks stay warm all day. This tumbler is sweat-resistant meaning it won’t leave any sweat marks/stains on your wood tables.
