This personally curated collection of everyday carry items is full of essential gear, apparel, and accessories that will be an immediate upgrade on your favorite daily items. You can shop the full collection or pick and choose your favorites by following any of those links down below!

The Frogskins™ Collection we see here is a pair with Prizm Violet lenses. These look like they came fro a time-machine and straight from the 1980s which is what I love most about them. They offer up 13% light transmission, increased contrast in bright light conditions, and are perfect for cruising on the boat, laying out back by the pool, or taking in some sun.

Below those we’ve got the Lems Shoes ‘Mesa’ sneaker which comes in a few vibrant colorways for you to choose from. These sneakers have a cushioned EVA midsole so you can hike in them all day long and your feet will still feel great. They’re designed with more of a natural gait and healthier posture than the competition and have a natural toe shape so your feet won’t feel cramped, ever.

Highly Clutch makes some of the finest everyday t-shirts on the planet in their ‘Basics Collection‘ that’s a favorite of thousands. You can purchase them individually or scoop a 3-pack for just $39 in all sorts of different colors. For lounging around the crib, running errands, and just trying to be comfortable you should 100% load up on these tees because you will thank me later.

You can pair that shirt with the all-new Khaki Jean from Revtown which is a stylish and versatile take on their ‘Sharp Fit’. These slim-cut jeans are infused with a stretch to ensure you have a full range of movement that’s ideal for wearing every day to work, the bar, or when traveling. It’s like they’ve cracked the code on how to combine khakis and jeans into one super product that I’m at least 50% convinced was designed specifically for me.

The Kershaw Link Pocket Knife w/ Speed Assist Opening is a perfect everyday carry blade. It’s lightweight and the 420HC stainless that’s been stonewashed is incredibly durable and corosion resistant. This knife’s also 40% on sale today on Amazon.

The Navy SEAL Aluminum Ridge Wallet 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.

We round it out today with Larq Bottle – Self Sanitizing Water Bottle. Let’s be honest, $118 is an outrageous price for a large water bottle. But this still has my attention unlike anything I’ve come across in a while. This is the cleanest water bottle on the market thanks to the UV-C LED purification system that cleans 99.999% of bacteria in only 60 seconds. It’s a double-wall vacuum sealed water bottle like the ones you’re accustomed to which means cold drinks stay cold for up to 24 hours. If you’re interested in learning more, here’s a quick clip:

Last up today is the Bullet Space Pen which sells for only $25, is made in the USA, and carries the classic Fisher ‘Bullet’ design that was developed in 1948. This pen uses a pressurized ink cartride for an even, dependable flow that will write under any conditions.
