This top-shelf roundup of everyday carry items was hand-picked by yours truly to improve your daily life. You can shop the full collection by following any of the links below or pick and choose any of your favorites as you see fit. Some of these items are on sale for a limited time so be sure to check those out before they’re gone.

First up today is the G-Shock GBD100-1 Watch ($150) which is built with ‘Triple 10’ resistance which means it offers 10 years of battery life, 10 bars of water resistance, and 10m of shock resistance. This rugged watch can be worn every day and go with you pretty much anywhere on the planet. It has an HD MIP LCD display and large slip-resistant buttons that make it an excellent option if you’re working outdoors a lot.

The Converse Custom ‘Federation’ Chuck 70 Sneakers ($115) are a really cool customizable line that you can make your own. The upper is fully customizable with prints from the USMNT, France, Netherlands, and South Korea National Soccer teams. I’ve featured the USA print here which you can make your own but the orange also looks excellent for The Netherlands. Hit that link and check out the Converse landing page with all their options.

Here we have a virtual must-have layer from Asket, The Raw Denim Jacket ($300) which is the ‘trucker jacket recast’. It is cut from their signature Japanese heritage raw denim in organic cotton and features a fully-lined black interior + hidden side pockets. This is the full package. Rock this all Fall and Winter with a plain t-shirt underneath and you’ll look fresh AF out there.

You can pair that jacket with the Proof Rover Work Pants ($98). These rugged work pants come in seven different colors for you to choose from and every Waist x Length configuration you’re looking for. The ultra-durable blend of 73% cotton, 25% Sorbtek, and 2% lycra ensures these pants last you A LONG TIME no matter how hard you wear them down.

The Ledlenser MT14 Flashlight ($99) gives you up to 192 hours of use on low power mode. This is a flashlight unlike anything you’re used to. The Ledlenser Advanced Focus System allows you to quickly go from a close-up wide flood beam to a sharply focused long-distance beam on the fly and it has 4 different light functions.

The Leatherman Skeletool KBx Pocket Knife for everyday carry is an absolute steal at just $25. It is made in Portland, Oregon and the blade’s constructed out of 420HC stainless steel for a brilliant edge. The skeleton frame design means this knife weighs just 1.3oz so you can carry it all day in your pocket and it won’t hold you down at all.

Here we’ve got the Larq Bottle – Self Sanitizing Water Bottle ($95). Let’s be honest, $95 is an outrageous price for a large water bottle. But this still has my attention unlike anything I’ve come across in a while. This is the cleanest water bottle on the market thanks to the UV-C LED purification system that cleans 99.999% of bacteria in only 60 seconds. It’s a double-wall vacuum sealed water bottle like the ones you’re accustomed to which means cold drinks stay cold for up to 24 hours.

The Jaybird Tarah Pro Headphones ($130) are waterproof + sweatproof and ideal for working out, commuting, or listening to music on the go. They have a 14-hour rechargeable battery which also makes them excellent headphones for your daily commute and travel.

We round it out with the Wellen Seawool Beanie ($35) which is a perfect way to keep your dome covered this Fall and Winter. It’s a classic style that can seamlessly fit with your existing wardrobe. As a kid I was told that we lose most of our body heat through our heads. I have absolutely no clue if that’s true or not but it’s always been a great way to stay warm.

Last up is the all-new Roark Revival Day Trip Passenger – 27L backpack ($89) in ‘Rust’. This is a perfect everyday backpack as a condensed daypack-style with roll-top entry. There’s a padded internal laptop sleeve for 15″ laptops, internal mesh pockets, a zippered sunglasses pocket on top, the roll-top has a magnetic closure, and the quilted padded back feels great on your back. This is a steal at only $89, so be sure to scoop this one up before it’s gone.
