This hand-picked roundup of the best everyday carry gear for guys is full of essential daily items you will be stoked to have each and every day. This collection includes some apparel, accessories, gear, and gadgets that are here to make your daily life run smoother from start to finish. For anything that catches your eye, you can click the product links below and order yours today.

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 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 style was a childhood favorite of designer Jerry Lorenzo and he’s brought it back to life with the Converse x FOG Essentials Skidgrip.

The 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, and can be laced up with an oval lace or a cotton flat lace. These look great with jeans or shorts and you can wear them year-round.

I pretty much live in short sleeves year-round and that’s why I wanted to turn you gentlemen onto Tropical Bros. The Tropical Bros ‘Dad Bod’ Hawaiian Shirt is made from a custom ‘super stretch’ Hawaiian fabric. This magnificent party shirt has a moisture-wicking outer shell, wood buttons, a classic front pocket, and it’s machine washable. Best part? This breathable short-sleeve buttondown is perfect for cruising around on the boat from tiki hut to beach bar. You’ll automatically receive 20% off your entire order by clicking over to Tropical Bros from BroBible!

You can pair that shirt with the Marine Layer Saturday Pants which come in Khaki (pictured here) or Faded Black. They combine the comfort of classic 5-pocket jeans with a pair of joggers.

Up next, we check out a unique everyday carry pocket knife from Deejo Knives 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.

The Fish Hook Key Ring is a Huckberry original that’s made right here in the USA. It’s ideal for saving pocket space and the matte black brass is both lightweight and durable.

The NanoTorch – Compact LED Flashlight is a compact everyday carry tool which fits snugly on your keychain and packs a ton of power into such a small flashlight (25 lumens). At only $20 this is a steal.

Here we’ve got the Tanner Goods Minimal Bifold which was designed in Portland and it’s made in Minneapolis using lather tanned by Wickett & Craig. This is a simple design that reduces pressure points so it doesn’t fall down due to stress. There’s a central cash pocket and side card slots and the vegetable tanned skirting leather only looks better with each day.

We round it out today with the Jaybird Tarah Pro Headphones which are waterproof + sweatproof and ideal for working out. They have a 14-hour rechargeable battery which also makes them excellent headphones for your daily commute and travel. These provide world-class sound and you can workout as hard as you’d ever want to in them.

Last up today is the YETI Rambler 26oz Bottle Chug Top which is the exact bottle I drink from every single day to stay hydrated. For whatever reason, I find I drink more water out of this bottle than any other one that I’ve ever owned. Go on and treat yourself to a new water bottle and thank me later!
