First up today is the Q Timex Watch. This is a recreation of the iconic 1979 Q diver-style watch. This runs on an extremely reliable and maintenance-free Seiko quartz movement and it’s water-resistant up to 50 meters.

These OluKai Nalukai Sandals are ideal of Summer. They come in three shades of leather and are made with non-marking rubber soles so you can wear them on the boat without scuffing up the white deck.

Here we’ve got the Forty Five Supima Crew Tee which is a really cool new brand launch. These shirts are made with 100% USA-grown Supima cotton and this launch has been tweaked and perfected for four years up until now. This is durable and much longer-lasting than typical cotton tees and it comes in 8 colorways to fit every single outfit you’ve got in the closet.

You can pair that shirt with the super comfortable Marine Layer Men’s Yoga Short which are perfect for lounging around, everyday wear, or as the name implies they have a full range of motion (83% polyester, 17% spandex) for athletics such as yoga. These comfor shorts also come in a handful of different colors for you to choose from.

Stated simply, the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are unlike any headphones you’ve ever used before. Not because they have unrivaled sound quality, which they do, but the first-of-its-kind Bose Augmented Reality platform makes new things possible with these smart headphones. They have an adaptive mic for superior pickup, are optimized for Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa, they’ve got 11 levels of noice cancellation, and the Bose AR system works with enabled apps to help you interact with the world around you like never before.

The NanoTorch – Compact LED Flashlight puts out an exceptionally bright 25 lumens for such a compact flashlight that fits neatly on your keychain. You can actually use this as a standalone keyring/keychain if you want but it also fits neatly on your existing keychain.

The ingeniously-designed VSSL Camp Supplies Mini Survival Kit is housed in a compact cylinder full of three distinct survival kits you should always have with you. This has a multi-mode flashlight, first aid kit, and plenty more survival tools and aid items you might need in a pinch.

The Leatherman FREE K2 Multi-Tool is a great all-around everyday carry pocket knife option. The 420HC blade is incredibly sharp and strong and this Leatherman tool also has a bottle opener, screwdrivers, awl, and more.

We round it out today with the Journeyman Card Wallet. I love this slim-profile 3.5oz vegetable-tanned Meridian English Bridle leather wallet with four card slots and a large central pocket for cash. This is made right here in the USA.

Last up is the the Filson Dryden Ballistic Nylon Backpack which is built with 7 oz Martexin waxed sailcloth. This ensures the backpack is extremely weather/water-resistant and abrasion-resistant. This backpack is handcrafted in Pennsylvania, has an interior 15″ laptop sleeve, countless pockets throughout, and robust brass hardware.
