essential everyday carry items 2021

This hand-picked collection of 2021’s best everyday carry gear for guys is here to help you slide into the near year a little bit easier. Each of these items was carefully chosen to fit your daily needs. You can pick and choose any of your favorites by following the links throughout this article or shop the full collection as you see fit.

First up is the The Lightwell Field Watch Mark III Watch ($200) which is powered by Seiko’s solar-quartz movement with a solar panel. It takes just one minute of sunlight to power this watch for 24-hours and a fully-charged watch has a power reserve of 4 months. This is a stylish watch which can be worn every day but you can also dress it up or down depending on the occasion.

The new Danner Skyridge Boots ($160) are designed as hiking boots that can be worn on and off the trails. These are just as good in a city as they are on an overnight trip up the mountain. The Danner Dry barrier is 100% waterproof but still allows moisture to escape and the open-cell PU footbed allows heat to dissipate and air to circulate. The uppers are built from a soft suede and cotton ripstop for a durable boot that’s comfortable right out of the box and they’re really just comfortable and versatile enough to wear every single day.

Here we have the brand new and limited-edition Lululemon Navigation Down Jacket ($248) which is an exclusive to Huckberry. This jacket uses lululemon’s ThermoChannel™ construction to create channels that hold feathers in place, has dual handwarmer pockets, a sinchable hood, and it’s insulated with a responsible 700-fill power goose down. The water-resistant jacket handles the cold and wet conditions brilliantly and it’s built from a stretch nylon and elastane shell that moves with you. You already know lululemon well. You know they make some of the best gear on the planet. This jacket is another example of how great their gear is.

You can pair that jacket with the Proof ‘Rover’ Pants (Slim) ($98) which come in six stylish colors to choose from. These rugged eco-friendly pants are a premium work-style that’s built to withstand anything you throw their way. The gusseted crotch unlocks full mobility and you can rock these all day in comfort.

The Pike Pocket Knife by The James Brand ($120) is a super limited-edition pocket knife from The James Brand that I needed you gentlemen to know about before it’s gone. Only 300 of the Rosewood Brass model were made and they’ll be gone in no time.

So I HAD to throw these next two items in here because I was gifted them last week and they’ve been game changers for me. I mean this with 100% sincerity: adding these Degree Maximum Recovery products have felt like a spa upgrade because they smell that good. The Degree Men Maximum Recovery Massage Bar has rejuvenated charcoal which is mood-boosting and the massage nubs were specifically engineered to relieve tension in your muscles after a big workout (or when you’re stressed).

The Degree Maximum Recovery Body Wipes ($6) are seriously a must-have for every man out there reading this. They’re only six bucks on the Walmart website and these Eucalyptus wipes were specifically designed to wipe away sweat, dirt, oil, and bacteria off your skin. They’re an easy way to stay fresh on the go but perfect for camping, road trips, and traveling when you might work up extra sweat without realizing it. They smell divine too which is really one of the top reason to purchase them.

The NanoTorch – Compact LED Flashlight ($20) 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.

I’m a pretty big fan of this stylish and timeless Leather Loop Key Chain ($28) 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.

Last up today is the Dango Products D01 Dapper Wallet ($69) which is so much more than a typical wallet. It holds up to 12-cards, is RFID-blocking, and has aerospace-grade anodized aluminum chassis so it’s outrageously durable but still lightweight. This wallet is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts because it truly holds up.
