This personally curated collection of the best men’s everyday carry essentials this season has something for every day. Each of these items was carefully chosen from the gear apparel, all to make your day run smoother. All you need to do in order to pick up any of these EDC items below is follow the links throughout this article!

First up is the The Lightwell Field Watch Mark III ($200) which is powered by Seiko’s solar-quartz movement with a solar panel. It takes just one minute of sunlight to power this watch for 24-hours and a fully-charged watch has a power reserve of 4 months. This is a stylish watch which can be worn every day but you can also dress it up or down depending on the occasion.

The Cole Haan x Hasan Minhaj GrandPrø Rally Court Sneaker was just released today and I was fortunate enough to cop a pair for myself. This is a limited-edition custom collaboration between Cole Haan and comedian/actor Hasan Minhaj.

Cole Haan x Hasan Minjah Grand Pro Sneakers

Cole Haan

There are two styles of this sneaker, the one featured here is the Optic White-Molten Lava colorway. It has an Ortholite footbed for breathability and cushioning, a rubberized EVA outsole that was engineered to last, an inner leather heel lining, and it’s incredibly lightweight. If you’re in an office or on your feet a lot this is a perfect high-end sneaker that both looks great and will prevent your feet from getting sore.

The Schott Men’s Funnel Neck Military Sweater ($140) comes in three colors, here we see the Off White. It’s made from a cozy blend of wool and nylon and the thick weave design traps in warmth.

You can pair that sweater with the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants – Tapered ($82) which comes in six different colors and are perfect everyday pants. Even if jeans are your preferred style you’re going to love how these chinos frame your lower half. And they’re sold in every length x waist configuration you’re looking for.

Here we check out a unique everyday carry pocket knife from Deejo Knives ($70) which features a dope custom blade tattoo. These are some of the most customizable knives on the planet, they are super light, and ideal for everyday carry. They allow you to pick a unique ‘tattoo’ to make the knife your own as well as choosing the blade and handle features.

The Huckberry Fish Hook Key Ring ($28) is a Huckberry original that’s made right here in the USA. It’s ideal for saving pocket space and the matte black brass is both lightweight and durable.

I recently branched out from my old sunglasses and check out these Kaenon Redding Polarized Sunglasses ($209) and I’m incredibly glad I did because I’ve been blown away both by the quality of the lenses and how light the sunglasses are overall. Maybe I got too used to my old fishing shades and didn’t notice the weight of them on my face but when I first put on Kaenon sunglasses I was shocked by how light they were. These shades come in six different colors with a minimal, clean, and classic design. You’re going to love those Kaenon SR-91® Polarized Lenses.

Next, we see the Dango Products T01 Spec Ops Utility Wallet ($99) which is so much more than a typical wallet. It has a built-in 14-function multi-tool that can help tackle whatever challenges life throws your way. It holds up to 12-cards, is RFID-blocking, and has aerospace-grade anodized aluminum chassis so it’s outrageously durable but still lightweight at only 2-ounces.

We round it out today with the Larq Movement Terra Edition Self Sanitizing Water Bottle ($98). This is a game-changer if you’re lazy like me and put off doing the dishes and cleaning your gym water bottle for as long as humanly possible. The Larq Movement Terra Water Bottle comes in a few sizes and colors for you to choose from and the built-in UV-C LED purification system is built on the same technology that hospitals use to quickly and efficiently sterilize emergency rooms.

Last up is the all-new Roark Revival Day Trip Passenger 27L Backpack ($89) in Black (it also comes in military green). This is a perfect everyday backpack as a condensed daypack-style with roll-top entry. There’s a padded internal laptop sleeve for 15″ laptops, internal mesh pockets, a zippered sunglasses pocket on top, the roll-top has a magnetic closure, and the quilted padded back feels great on your back. This is a steal at only $89, so be sure to scoop this one up before it’s gone.
