These hand-picked daily essentials were chosen by yours truly to add immediate value to your life each day. You can shop the full collection of ten everyday carry items or pick and choose your favorites by following any of the links throughout this article!

First up today we’ve got the throwback Timex 80 Vintage Watch [$59] which comes in Black or Silver. This is from the PEAK 1980’s digital watch designs of Timex but it’s a throwback style that’s just as good today as it was years ago. It’s water-resistant, has an easy-read digital display, an expansion wrist band, and it’s perfect for everyday wear.

Next up, we’re checking out the Easymoc North American ‘Moss’ Leather Mocs [$245] which are exclusive to Huckberry. These are some of the best leather mocs on the market. The soft suede uppers offer a broken-in feel from the day you buy them and the durable Vibram camp sole is designed for rugged outdoor wear and to last for years. It features 100% cow leather lining and an Ortholite® Comfort Hybrid Recycled Footbed which provides incredible cushioning for all-day comfort.

The Flint and Tinder Surplus Collection Tee [$38] comes in four colors (Twill, Olive, Grey, and Black). This shirt’s built from a military-inspired cotton and Cordura® fabric blend and cut with a modern crew neck silhouette for easywearing that frames your body well. This incredibly comfortable fabric is so soft you might want to sleep in it but that’s what makes it an amazing everyday shirt.

You can pair that tee with the Relwen Hemp Supply Shorts [$158] which are some of the best shorts money can buy. These are a recreation of US Military utility pants from the ‘50s and ‘60s but made with modern and incredibly soft materials. The hemp and organic cotton blend is woven into a mini-herringbone fabric which comes with a lived-in feel that only gets better and better every time you wear them.

Here we’ve got a Custom Deejo Knives EDC Pocket Knife [$79] which truly is one of the coolest options on the planet for building a new pocket knife. You can fully customize it by choosing the Finishing (mirror/titanium), Weight (15/27/37g), Handle (Wood vs Composite), and you can add a custom blade tattoo and/or text on the handle. This can truly be your own pocket knife through and through. These also make awesome gifts!

Next, we see the Forged Carbon Wallet + Money Clip [$115] which is a sick new design from The Ridge Wallet and it’s built to strike the balance between a minimalist wallet and a bi-fold. It holds between 1-12 cards in the carbon fiber plates, features RFID-blocking tech, and the modular design allows you to swap out the elastic cash strap for a money clip any time. The slim profile fits easily into your pocket without taking up any unnecessary space.

Next up we’ve got the OrbitKey’s Cactus Leather Key Organizer [$40] (in black) which holds between 2 to 7 keys and is there to help you save pocket space in ways you didn’t think was possible. I was first turned onto OrbitKey a few years ago and have been a fan ever since. These really are a great way to ditch conventional keychains which have been around forever and are poorly designed.

The NanoTorch Compact LED Flashlight [$13] is a compact everyday carry tool which fits snugly on your keychain and packs a ton of power into such a small flashlight (25 lumens). At only $20 this is a steal and it’s one of those tools that is always there when you need it.

Some of you might listen to me, many of you won’t, but owning a great umbrella is a game-changer in the Spring. The Weatherman Umbrellas’ Travel Umbrella [$54] from Weatherman Umbrellas has a 40″ diameter with full canopy coverage. The reinforced industrial-strength fiberglass ribs resist breaking and deforming while the vented canopy lets air through without letting water in. And when you spend more than $10 on an umbrella you tend to make sure you don’t lose it!

Last up today is the all-new Boundary Supply Errant Pack Backpack [$189] is an extremely versatile everyday backpack that also has enough space for a weekender/daypack with a robust 24-liter space. It’s built from an incredibly tough combo of materials including 500-denier nylon Kodra with a durable, water-repellent finish. There are 18 pockets, compartments, and modular storage areas. There are also multiple carry options. Of course, you’ve got the 15-inch laptop sleeve but there’s also a 13-inch tablet sleeve, a sunglasses pocket, and magnetic hardware makes it easy to open and close.
