10 Elevated Everyday Essentials For Living It Up

Elevated Everyday Essentials

Great gear doesn’t come cheap. You’ll need to fork over some coin for top quality and these elevated everyday essentials won’t necessarily break the bank but you’ll be thankful youo spent a little extra for the best gear around.

First up is the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT – Limited Edition [$1,795] and there’s only one in stock so if you’re interested you’ll need to act fast. This watch runs on a Swiss-made STP ETA2893-2 automatic mechanical movement that winds itself with the movement of your wrist. It’s a 100% Swiss construction watch and features the highest level of accuracy defined by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute.

I own these OluKai Nalukai Sandals [$110] and love them. They’re as comfortable as they are stylish and the burnished, premium full-grain leather uppers look aewsome. Walking on the anatomical molded polyurethane footbed covered with full-grain leather is a step up from any sunglasses you’ve been wearing.

The Faherty Brand Canyon Overshirt [$168] is as good as it gets. What can I say about this shirt you can’t already see? It’s incredible. You can wear it as a shirt, overshirt, with shorts, jeans, or slacks. Treat yo self!

These Free Fly Hybrid Shorts II – 7″ [$69] will pair perfectly with the shirt and they are built for life in or out of the water. The four-way stretch fabric gives you a full range of movement and the bamboo fabric is as comfortable as anything you’ll find.

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 by The James Brand [$159] in Natural Micarta + Black 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 Grey + Stainless colorway is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts 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.

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 Collapsible Umbrella [$59] 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!

The Leather Hotel Key Fob [$20] is a Huckberry original. This is a no-nonsense keychain with a robust brass key ring and leather that will develop a gorgeous patina over time.

Last up today is the Wexley Stem Daypack in Cordura [$129] which comes in Khaki/Grey or Navy. This is a lightweight and technical daily-use backpack with a 17 liter capacity that’s made from a hyper durable 1000D Cordura exterior. It has two hidden interior pockets and a 15-inch laptop sleeve inside the main compartment. The thermo-formed honeycomb EVA foam back panel is comfortable and breathable for all day wear and it really is just a stylish modern look for a backpack.
