Essential Everyday Gear For Turning Up The Volume On Life

daily gear for turning the volume up on life

Let’s get loud, my dudes. Let’s add some color to your life and turn up the volume a little bit. I carefully chose each of these daily essential items to make your daily life run smoother from start to finish. You can purchase any of the items that chat your eye by following any of the links throughout the article!

First up today is the Seiko Prospex “Arnie” Watch [$525] which is a modern reissue of the Seiko 1982 Hybrid Diver’s Watch. This was Arnold Schwarzenegger’s signature watch in 80’s movies and this Special PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) edition is water-resistant to 200 meters (660 feet), following ISO standards and is suitable for scuba diving. It also has a 6-month power reserve in addition to charging via solar tech so it juices up while you wear it. This truly is a world-class watch.

Here we’ve got the Onitsuka Tiger California 78 Sneakers [$90] which are incredibly fresh and also come in two colorways. They are built from lightweight suede and mesh upper in a modern style but the retro Sharktooth sole gives them a throwback feel that’s awesome.

The Faherty Brand Tie-Dye Hoodie [$148] checks literally every box I’m looking for in a hoodie. This blue tie-dyed pattern is glorious. I have a similar patterned Tampa Bay Lightning shirt that’s a favorite of mine. But this hoodie is cut from a super soft loopback terry fabric which is as good as it gets. You can wear this hoodie all year long. Buy now, thank me later.

You can pair that hoodie with the Patagonia Baggies Shorts 5″ in Spoonbills Pattern [$55]. These shorts come in three solid colors but then there’s this glorious pattern of spoonbills which you’d be a fool to pass on. I’ve got a few roseate spoonbills that feed in the lake behind my house. I’ve been big into these spoonbills lately. They’re so fascinating how they change colors from incredibly pink to white depending on whether they’re eating tons of crab/shrimp or fish and it’s also a brilliant way to track good fishing spots. If you’re hunting for redfish you should track the dark pink spoonbills but don’t do that without buying these shorts. Again, buy now and thank me later.

Here we’ve got a Custom Deejo Knives EDC Pocket Knife [$79] which truly is one of the coolest options on the planet for building a new pocket knife. You can fully customize it by choosing the Finishing (mirror/titanium), Weight (15/27/37g), Handle (Wood vs Composite), and you can add a custom blade tattoo and/or text on the handle. This can truly be your own pocket knife through and through. These also make awesome gifts!

Add some more flavor to your outfit with this Legend Headwear Trippy Cord Hat [$40] that’s been cut from Bedford corduroy fabric. This is a classic five-panel camp hat design with a custom in-house sublimation dye job. This hat’s been cut, dyed, sewn, and assembled in a family-run factory in Cleveland, Ohio.

Tired of fogged up glasses, sunglasses, or face shields? Then FogBlock Anti-Fog Solution for PPE + Glasses [$12.99] has got you covered. This anti-fog solution is 13% off today on CitizenGoods and each spray gives you 24-hours of streakfree fogless protection.

Looking to spend some coin on something badass and different? Look no further than the The Ridge 18k Gold Plated Wallet [$225]. This wallet holds between 1 to 12 cards and is built from durable metal with genuine 18 karat gold plating. There’s also a cash clip to hold all of your cash in place. What’s wild is it only weighs 2.2 ounces despite being an 18k gold plated wallet!

We round it out with the Jaybird Vista Earthproof Wireless Headphones [$149] 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.’

Last up is the Filson Dry Backpack (Waterproof) [$175] which is just a useful bag that everyone should check out for their next adventures. Whether you’re camping, boating, hiking, or paddling, the PU-coated 840-denier nylon exterior is waterproof, abrasion-resistant, and flexible to keep all of your gear dry. A dry bag isn’t 100% necessary for everyday use but it really is important for adventures when you need to ensure your stuff doesn’t get soaked. So check it out and have it ready for the right time!
