When choosing a collection of everyday carry gear it’s important to keep versatility in mind. This personally curated roundup of 2021’s best everyday carry essentials for men is here to help you live each and every day a little bit better. It includes some EDC tools, gadgets, as well as apparel so that you can take the guesswork out of being prepared for life’s twists and turns. To purchase any of the items or the full collection you can follow any of the links throughout this article.

First up today is the G-Shock GBD100-1 Watch [$150] which is built with ‘Triple 10’ resistance which means it offers 10 years of battery life, 10 bars of water resistance, and 10m of shock resistance. This rugged watch can be worn every day and go with you pretty much anywhere on the planet. It has an HD MIP LCD display and large slip-resistant buttons that make it an excellent option if you’re working outdoors a lot.

The Vans Classic Slip-On 98 DX [$75] pays tribute to the shoes made in the first Vans factory in Anaheim, CA. They feature sturdy suede uppers and signature rubber waffle outsoles.

The all-new Seager x Huckberry Rodeo Tee [$30] features an original graphic on the back and front chest. This is a limited-edition collaboration between Seager and Huckberry that’s designed and printed in California.

It might be ice cold across most of North America but you can chill out indoors in these glorious Rhythm Cord Jam Shorts [$58] which come in Brown or Slate and they’ll also be here for you when festival season comes back this Summer. They have dual slit side pockets for EDC and feature textured corduroy construction for all-day comfort and plenty of style.

The Native Union Belt Cable XL [$24, ususally $35] measures 10-feet-long and this one’s for all the iPhone users out there. The integrated leather ensures it stays tangle-free and the cable itself is made with a reinforced braided nylon exterior that’s built to withstand anything you throw at it.

Here we’ve got the Melin All Day Beanie [$54, usually $79] which is a knit beanie with a circular rib pattern for an excellent fit and unique style. It features a Chenille lining for extra soft next-to-skin comfort.

Next up is the 1733 X10 Canvas Ripstop Bookbag [$129, usually $200] which is exclusively available at Huckberry. This backpack is waterproof and made with a ripstop canvas fabric that’s built to last you a generation. I still have a canvas backpack from the early 90’s that was my older brothers back in the day. I don’t really use it that often but I still have it. This fabric lasts FOREVER. This backpack is made in small batches in Chicago and has top access for EDC pockets, padded straps, a laptop sleeve, zipper counter-pulls and paracord for easy opening, and a lot more features that are awesome.

Here we check out the WESN Allman Pocket Knife [$118, usually $140] which comes with WESN’s lifetime warranty. It’s perfectly sized to fit into your pocket for everyday use. The G10 handle is lightweight and offers a solid grip and the S35vn stainless steel blade is one of the finest around for edge retention.

We round it out today with the Tanner Goods Journeyman Wallet [$40, usually $75] in ‘Saddle Tan’ leather. I love this slim-profile 3.5oz premium tooling leather wallet with four card slots and a large central pocket for cash. This is made right here in the USA. It also comes in ‘Saddle Tan’ leather and a few other colorways if you’re looking to match it to your favorite belt or boots.

Last up today is the The Triage Kit – Travel-Sized First Aid Kit [$36, usually $62] which is a standard everyday carry survival kit you want to keep tucked into your backpack or center console or on the boat. This is a ‘get it and forget it’ survival kit that’s half off right now. It was created in consultation with 100 outdoors experts. It has more survival tools than I can mention here.
