First up are the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 which are unlike any headphones you’ve ever used before. Not because they have unrivaled sound quality, which they do, but the first-of-its-kind Bose Augmented Reality platform makes new things possible with these smart headphones. They have an adaptive mic for superior pickup, are optimized for Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa, they’ve got 11 levels of noice cancellation, and the Bose AR system works with enabled apps to help you interact with the world around you like never before. You’ll want to keep yourself entertained with music while all of the soft folk are inside in the cold A/C and you’re crushing the grill.

The SeaVees 08/63 Hermosa Plimsoll come in three colorways: Tin Grey, Natural, and Slate Navy (pictured here). These kicks have an antibacterial and hypoallergenic footbed, vintage wash finish on the textured linen upper, and a herringbone sole for maximum traction.

The Free Fly Bamboo Slub Polo is a perfect summertime polo. Here is the Sea Glass colorway in an exceptionally soft bamboo viscose-blend fabric. It’s breathable and naturally odor-resistant that makes it an excellent Summer weather shirt and the quick-dry fibers keep you cool and dry.

You can pair that polo with the Wellen Cruiser Hybrid Shorts which have a quick-drying stretch material that gives you a full range of movement and a lot more comfort compared to typical cotton blend shorts. These shorts have your normal pockets as well as a secret zippered pocket inside on the left for your valuables when you’re traveling.

Up next is the ‘Worry-Free Deodorant’ from Each & Every which uses simple, clean ingredients like coconut oil and Dead Sea salts to fight odor all-day. One thing that’s particularly great about this deodorant in addition to it being better for your skin and body than normal off-the-shelf deodorants is this company uses energizing scents that pick you up when you need it. This will keep you odor-free all day long but have you smelling (and probably feeling) better than you’re used to.

The SOG Knives Aegis AT Pocket Knife has a blade that’s quickly deployed, smooth to operate, and has military-quality strength to hold up over the years. The handle is made from a fiberglass reinforced nylon and the blade is made out of a cryogenically heated D2 high-carbon steel with a titanium nitride finish. This is a perfect everyday carry pocket knife if you’re in the market for a new one.

Here we’ve got the Ridge Wallet Aluminum Wallet + Money Clip which is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts worldwide. This expandable wallet will hold between 1-12 cards, only weighs 2oz, is RFID-blocking, and has an integrated money clip that you can use to hold cash or clip onto your pocket.

The Dark Energy 214A Flashlight is an incredibly powerful and portable flahslight for everyday carry. You can put the durable 6061-T6 aluminum housing to hard use, it has five levels of illumination, and pumps out 188 lumens. This flahslight has a pocket clip so you can clip it onto your backpack or in your pocket and it has a weather-resistant rating of IPX-7 which means it can handle being fully sumberged in water for up to 30 minutes.

We round it out today with the vibrant and structurally robust Topo Designs Daypack that’s perfect for everyday carry. The rugged 1000D Cordura nylon exterior is heavy duty and will stand the test of time. This backpack’s handmade in Colorado.

Last up today is the VSSL Compact First Aid Kit which is an expertly-designed outdoors survival kit that was created after VSSL’s founder Todd Weimer spent years in the Yukon region of Canada. This is housed in a military-grade weather resistant aluminum casing and has everything you might need in a survival situation.
