Black is arguably the best color for everyday carry items. As a color, it fits seamlessly with other colors but it’s also robust to scratches and wear and tear. Your black everyday carry accessories look newer for longer than stainless steel and colored items. I’ve pulled together some of the best everyday carry essentials in shades of black for this Spring and Summer for you guys to choose from. You can pick your favorite items or shop the full everyday carry collection by clicking any of the links throughout this article!
We kick it off with the rugged and stylish Luminox Scott Cassell Deep Dive Watch [$381, usually $695] which is on sale right now and an absolute steal at that price. This watch runs on a Ronda 715 LI caliber, Swiss quartz movement and is housed in a lightweight shock- and scratch-resistant Carbonox™ case made from rigid carbon powder. It is 100% Swiss-made and featured a unidirectional bezel for safe and precise timing on dives.
These OluKai Tuahine Sandals [$90] are perfect for Spring and Summer. These come on Stone (black) or brown and are made from water-resistant full-grain leather. The compression-molded EVA midsole offers all-day support and cushioning and the premium full-grain leather footbed beats the competition when it comes to comfort.
Here we’ve got Lululemon At Ease Hoodie [$148] which is a personal favorite of mine. I picked this hoodie up a few weeks ago and I’ve been wearing it on the couch quite literally every single day since. I have it in a Heathered Ancient Copper colorway but it also comes in a Light Grey style as well as the Black that you see here. It has a four-way stretch and a large Kangaroo pouch (with an internal zipper pocket) for tucking your hands or valuables. There’s a hidden ‘media pocket’ for your phone. This is truly the most comfortable and best-fitting hoodie I’ve ever owned so check this one out for sure (and thank me later!).
Pair that hoodie with the Patagonia Baggies Short – 5″ [$55] which also come in 7″ if you’re looking for more length. These durable nylon shorts are treated with a DWR finish to ensure they’re incredibly quick-drying. You can go running in these, lounge around the house, do yardwork, chill out, run errands, and live your best life all Spring and Summer.
The Dissim Inverted Lighter [$39] is a patent-pending butane lighter that’s a perfect addition to your everyday carry collection. Honestly, this is one of the best lighter designs I’ve ever seen in terms of form and function and it’s only $39. The unique shape allows you to ignite in the upright or inverted position easily and the angled flame port allows you to direct the flame where you want it.
Every aspect of The Carter Pocket Knife for Everyday Carry [$139] has been carefully considered and crafted to deliver you a perfect pocket knife for daily use, one that will last you a lifetime if you treat it well, and one that is lightweight and discreet enough to easily carry in your pocket without taking up too much space. This Black colorway is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts (it comes in 5 styles) all over I’m 100% on board with it.
Next we see the Forged Carbon Wallet + Money Clip [$125] 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.
Here we’ve got this stylish and timeless Leather Loop Key Chain [$19] which has a brass clip to keep your keys secure and a robust leather strap. This is a classic keychain style that’s always been a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts and this particular one will develop a nice patina over time as the leather ages and takes on character.
We round it out with the Jaybird Tarah Pro Headphones [$130] which are waterproof + sweatproof and ideal for working out. They have a 14-hour rechargeable battery which also makes them excellent headphones for your daily commute and travel. These provide world-class sound and you can workout as hard as you’d ever want to in them.
Last up is the Aer Fit Pack 2 Backpack [$135] which is an all-time favorite of mine. I’ve had an Aer Fit Pack 2 for years and I’ve traveled the world with it. It has a super handy zippered pocket at the bottom for your shoes as well as a massive central compartment. I often use this as my carry-on bag for flights. It also has a laptop sleeve and pockets throughout for everything you need to store.
