best everyday carry items 2021 new

This unique and personally curated roundup of everyday carry gear is full of items that are built to last and have you feeling and looking great. This is gear that won’t let you down when you need and tools that will be there for you every day. You can pick and choose any of your favorites throughout the article by following any of the links below or shop the full collection!

First up today is the Timex 80 Retro Watch which is criminally underpriced at only $59. This is an everyday watch borne from a generation of ‘DeLoreans, Duran Duran, and Donkey Kong’ that was designed to be ”rad’ in every sense of the word’ by utilizing a geometric watch face and steel expansion band combined with Timex durability and trust. This is a watch you can wear with pretty much every outfit you own (Shorts, Jeans, Chinos, Shortleeves, Tanktop, Buttondown, etc.)

The Converse x FOG Essentials Skidgrip Shoe ($120) is my favorite streetwear release of the Summer. It just dropped but you can still pick it up today if you act quick. This is a reboot of the Skidgrip Con-Rad which was a go-to style for skaters and surfers in the 1980s. This Converse x FOG Essentials Skidgrip Shoe is a hightop with a digitally printed archival pattern. It has a padded collar and OrthoLite sock liner (love OrthoLite!), Fear of God ESSENTIALS and Chuck 70 vintage license plates. These look great with jeans or shorts and you can wear them year-round.

Next up is a really cool piece, The Hoodie by Asket ($110), which is about to be your new favorite layer for the next few months. The Hoodie by Asket comes in Navy, Black, and Dusty Green. This has a heavy-weight feel, 100% organic cotton loopback, it’s double lined, and I actually love the removal of the kangaroo pouch pocket that makes this a more streamlined look. Make sure you check out this awesome release from Asket because it could sell out quick.

You can pair that hoodie with the Lululemon ABC Joggers ($128), a pair of pants I’m wearing 3 to 5 days a week at this point. These define what athleisure is capable of in 2020. You can warm-up, workout, and cool down in these pants while also wearing them to work from home, run errands, hit the bar, whatever you choose. These come in a handful of colors and the four-way stretch is designed to naturally move with your body so you get the most out of them while working out.

Here we check out a unique everyday carry pocket knife from Deejo Knives ($70) which features a dope custom blade tattoo. These are some of the most customizable knives on the planet, they are super light, and ideal for everyday carry. They allow you to pick a unique ‘tattoo’ to make the knife your own as well as choosing the blade and handle features.

Next we have the Wood Visor Freshener from Drift ($8), a really cool product that’s only $8 and it is something you probably never realized you need until you discovered it exists. This is a high-quality block of sustainably-sourced cedar wood that has been soaked in essential and fragrance oils to deliver real scents (not chemicals). The Drift Wood Visor Freshener has a balanced scent profile of dark rum, caramel, allspice, plum, and clove. At only $8 this is an absolute steal and one of the cooler products I’ve come across so far in 2020.

Are you looking to limit, reduce, or eliminate your coffee intake? TEMPO’s got you covered with their F*ck Coffee Nootropics Brain Support Supplement. It was engineered to be an effective alternative to coffee and other stimulants by boosting focus. It’s cleaner than energy drinks and it promotes all-day energy, improved memory, enhanced creativity, elevated mood, and it’s crash-free. The blend of Rhodiola rosea extract, Coffeeberry Energy, NeuroFactor Coffee Extract, and TeaCrine are ideal for rapid absorption. This is a newly-released item and you can pick it up on Amazon by clicking here or hitting that ‘shop now‘ button below.

Here we have the Jaybird Vista Earthproof Wireless Headphones in Black ($180). 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.’

We round it out today with the Larq Movement Terra Edition Water Bottle ($78). This is a game-changer if you’re lazy like me and put off doing the dishes and cleaning your gym water bottle for as long as humanly possible. The Larq Movement Terra Water Bottle comes in a few sizes and colors for you to choose from and the built-in UV-C LED purification system is built on the same technology that hospitals use to quickly and efficiently sterilize emergency rooms.

Last up today is the Aer Day Pack 2 ($140) I’ve had an Aer backpack for years and it’s been as good as anything I’ve ever owned including the YETI backpack. The Aer Day Pack 2 has a compact 14.8-liter size and it’s highly abrasion-resistant thanks to the 840D nylon construction with 1680D Cordura® side paneling which means you can throw anything in life at this bag and it’ll hold up. They’re a company based out of San Francisco and once you scoop up one of these backpacks you’ll never look back.
