First up today is the G-Shock GM5600B-1 Watch [$129, usually $200] which is part of their classic DW-5600 series with stainless steel added for a sharp new look. This watch is a BEAST. It is resistant against electric shock, gravity, low temperatures, vibration, water, and impact. It will hold up to anything you throw its way and look great every single day.

Next we’ve got the Danner Skyridge Boots [$160] which are high-ankle boots to keep you protected and provide ample support while you crush the trails. The uppers are made with a combination of soft suede leather and cotton ripstop. The Danner Dry barrier is 100% waterproof.

Here we’ve got the Reigning Champ Full Zip Hoodie – Midweight Terry [$165] in Navy which is your classic zip-up hoodie but made from ultra-premium fabrics. When it comes to comfort, you won’t top this hoodie. It’s that good.

You can pair that excellent shirt with the Flint and Tinder All-American Stretch Denim Jeans [$128] which come in every length/waist configuration. They are cut, sewn, and washed in Los Angeles and have a 1% stretch added for comfort and flexibility. These jeans feature herringbone pocketing, tucked belt loops, and detailed back pocket stitching.

Every aspect of The Carter Knife by The James Brand [$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.

The Nite Ize S-Biner #3 [$6] is a steal at only six bucks. This high-quality stainless steel carabiner is built for hanging keys, camping gear, water bottles, and adjoining two items together. Six bucks!

Here we’ve got the Jaybird Vista Earthproof Wireless Headphones [$180] in black. These earbuds have been overhauled to meet the military’s MIL-STD 810G requirements. If they’re rugged enough for the troops they’re good enough for you, right? In order to receive the MIL-STD 810G certification the ‘Earthproof’ Vistas had to endure ‘repeated shock, vibration, drop and crush tests, as well as withstanding tropical humidity, hurricane-force water and desert sandstorm conditions.’

The Huckberry Beanie in Light Heather Grey [$28] is a classic ‘Fisherman Style’ beanie and it’s available in 7 different colors for you to choose from. This beanie is made from a blend of acrylic, wool, nylon, and spandex. The finished product is a beanie you can wear every day for style and warmth but one you can push to the limits of hiking and traveling.

The Red Wing Heritage Card Holder Wallet [$44, usually $75] can hold more cards than you own. Seriously. Each pocket can hold up to 20 cards. That’s way too many. You can toss 2-4 cards in each side and some folded cash and BOOM, you’re good to go. It is made in the USA using authentic S.B. Foot Tanning leather, a Red Wing owned-and-operated tanning company based in Red Wing, Minnesota.

Last up is the Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 24L Backpack [$165] which you see here in an Indigo colorway but it comes in three other colors as well. This weather-resistant backpack is built to keep your gear dry and safe while providing enough storage space for daily use as a backpack, gym bag, or a weekender/carry-on bag when you’re traveling. The versatility and ruggedness of this backpack makes it an exceptional choice.
