10 Everyday Carry Essentials For Staying Dry, Stylish, And Comfortable

best weather resistant everyday carry items for men

With ‘Spring Showers’ on the horizon, I wanted to curate an everyday carry collection for you gentlemen today that would be invaluable in the coming days. This EDC capsule is all about staying dry and looking great. You can pick and choose your favorites or shop the full collection by following any of the links below! Let’s jump right into it, shall we/

First up today is your new all-time favorite rain jacket, the brand new Stormchaser Jacket from Mack Weldon. What I love the most about this jacket is how it feels tailor-fitted versus a typical rain jacket that sits on your body all baggy. The Stormchaser Jacket just feels right on your frame but beyond that it’s one of the hardest working layers in the game. The 2.5-layer fabric has a 10K waterproof rating. What exactly does that mean for you? It means you’ll never get wet, ever, the fully seam-sealed interior will see to that. There are six bonded pockets throughout for all of your gear and this just hit the market so you can be one of the first people on the planet to scoop one up just in time for Spring showers.

Next we see the Lems Shoes Waterproof Boulder Boots. I’ve included three images of these waterproof boots so you can get a better sense of their versatility. When I say they’re ‘packable’ I really mean it. You can roll them up for travel and neatly tuck them away to save space. The 100% full-grain leather construction is oiled to achieve waterproof construction and these boots come together in a stylish way that will fit most of your Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter styles.

Spring Break is just around the corner followed by Summer but I already pretty much live in short sleeves year-round and that’s why I wanted to turn you gentlemen onto Tropical Bros. The Weekend Warrior 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 party shirt with the Proof Nomad Pants which come in five different colorways for you to choose from. They’re made from a two-way stretch Japanese Toray twill that breathes well and makes these ideal pants for traveling because when you reach your destination you won’t feel like you’ve been wearing the same clothes for a month. The water-resistant DWR coating added ensures you stay dry and keeps the elements away.

Next up, we check out a unique everyday carry pocket knife from Deejo Knives 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 Timex Navi XL Watch here has a Navy watchface which will look great with so many of your daily outfits. This is your classic Dive Watch style and it’s water-resistant up to 100 meters. The navy blue fabric strap perfectly matches the dial.

Up next is the Magpul DAKA Everyday Wallet which is made from polymer infused textile material that’s oil, water, dirt, and stain resistant. The welded seams create impenetrable seals and this wallet makes sure you won’t sacrifice any precious pocket space. This wallet will keep your ID/cash dry and stay new for years to come.

The Peak Design Everyday Backpack 15L Zip is a perfect backpack for everyday use. The coolest feature of this backpack is the FlexFold dividers and internal pockets which enable you to configure this backpack any way you want with endless possibilities. The recycled nylon canvas shell has a DWR coating that’s both durable and weatherproof.

We round it out today with the Blunt Umbrellas ‘Metro’. You might’ve heard me say this here before but I’m a HUGE proponent of spending money on a good umbrella. I understand that this is typically an item only used in cities but people who buy cheap umbrellas from the bodega lose those all the time. They break. If you invest just a little bit extra into an umbrella and buy one you care about you’re invested in not losing it, and this one’s tested to hold up in 55 MPH winds!!

Last up is the Kinto Travel Tumbler. This is a CLUTCH item to keep stuffed in your backpack or car for everyday use. The super durable 18-8 stainless steel can take a real beating and the double-wall vacuum insulation keeps your cold drink ice cold all day long and your warm drinks (coffee/tea) hot for hours.
