10 Stylish Black, Grey, And Steel Everyday Carry Essentials

best black grey steel everyday carry gear

This hand-picked collection of the best everyday carry gear for men is here today to improve your life by helping take the guesswork out of getting ready each day. Obviously, the unifying element of this gear, apparel, and accessory collection is color. We’re working with shades of grey from black to silver. You can shop the full collection and/or buy any of the items by clicking through on the product links below.

Up first, we see the The Chrono S in Matte Black which is a stunning timepiece from Vincero Watches that is perfect for everyday wear. It has a smart look that’s ideal in an office setting, first date, or on the road. The matte black 316L surgical grade steel case is robust and the Citizen Miyota Quartz movement is super precise. It is water-resistant up to 170-feet, has a 43mm watch face, and the top-grain Italian leather strap is interchangeable.

The Helm Boots ‘Hollis Boot’ in Black lives at the intersection of work and dress boots. It can be worn as both and each tiny detail of this boot has been carefully considered and built with the best available materials around. From the soft leather interior lining to the signature white composite rubber midsole, these boots that are handmade in Brazil are truly an example of perfection.

Here we have the Mizzen + Main “Belson” Vest in Charcoal Heather which is the Bugatti of vests. The quilting texture is specifically engineered to absorb your body heat in cooler temperatures and keep you comfortable. This vest is wind-resistant and ultra-soft on the body. I’ve been a Mizzen+Main fan for years, they’ve made half of the dress shirts in my closet. I didn’t think they could top their superior craftsmanship but they’ve really taken it to the next level with these vests.

The Flint and Tinder 365 Pant in Charcoal is a 98% cotton + 2% spandex blended 8oz fabric that gives you the perfect amount of stretch in a pair of pants. These are super versatile which is what I love about them. You can rock them every day or for specific occasions.

Next is the YETI Crossroads Backpack 23 which is easily my favorite new backpack of 2019. I got hands-on with this backpack (in black) recently and I went into it thinking YETI specializes in Coolers + Tumblers so this wouldn’t be a hit but I couldn’t have been more wrong. It has 23-liters of space for all of your gear, and it’s made from a 1000D Nylon that is lined with 420D Nylon ripstop so it’s as durable as it is comfortable in fit.

I brought my new backpack to the Utah desert for the Red Bull Rampage a week ago and it was so clutch. The side water bottle pocket was big enough to accommodate my 40oz water bottle and it was actually the first time in my life I got compliments on a backpack! Within the YETI Crossroads Backpack 23 is a quick stash pocket, additional laptop + tablet pockets, and a structured arc that keeps the bag upright for easy access and to ensure it retains its shape over time.

The Red Wing Heritage Card Holder is a brilliant slim wallet option for people like myself who demand superior craftsmanship and design. This wallet is handmade in Red Wing, Minnesota using authentic S.B. Foot Tanning leather with four card slots (two on each side) and a cash slot in between.

The Elko Knife by The James Brand features a lightweight and durable handle with an anodized finish. The Carpenter CTS-BD1 steel drop point blade is designed to keep its edge for years to come and this tiny knife is compact enough to carry in your pocket all day long without getting in the way.

I’m willing to wager that at least 75% of you guys reading this right now are drinking enough water every day. With the YETI Rambler 26oz Bottle in tow, you’ll always have water on hand and it will serve as a constant reminder to put down more H20. This will keep you cold drinks ice cold all day long and your coffee piping hot for hours.

We round it out today with the Bellroy Micro Pen in Gunmetal. This is such a slick pen that you’d be a fool not to add this to your everyday carry collection. The compact design makes it incredibly easy to travel with or tuck away in your pocket. It’s refillable and the ballpoint tip is super smooth.

Last up is the Fjällräven Merino Lite Hat. It is made from a 100% Merino wool that’s one of the best fabrics on the planet. It is quick-drying and moisture-wicking, naturally odor and dirt resistant, and it feels great on the skin so you can wear this comfortably all day long.

If you have any accessories or apparel that you believe deserves to be featured here you can always hit me up on Twitter at @casspa or email at cass@brobible.com.

I’m sure most of you have realized this by now, but I publish a new edition of the ‘Everyday Carry‘ essentials roundup Monday through Thursday here at BroBible with the ‘Things We Want‘ gear guide going out on Fridays. If you know of a product that should be featured here you can hit me up on email at cass@brobible.com, or find me on Twitter at @casspa. Or if you’ve got an idea for a daily theme I should touch on then hit me up!

I’m sure you’ve noticed by now but I can’t list the prices for an Amazon product because they typically change daily and it’s a violation of their TOS. That’s why it’s always listed as ‘Buy on Amazon’ instead of the price like the other items. I apologize for that confusion but I prefer to play by the rules, my dudes.
