First up is The Lightwell Field Watch Mark III [$200] which is powered by Seiko’s solar-quartz movement with a solar panel. It takes just one minute of sunlight to power this watch for 24-hours and a fully-charged watch has a power reserve of 4 months. This is a stylish watch which can be worn every day but you can also dress it up or down depending on the occasion.

The Vans Classic Slip-On 98 DX – Anaheim Factory [$75] pays tribute to the shoes made in the first Vans factory in Anaheim, CA. They feature sturdy suede uppers and signature rubber waffle outsoles. You can also pick these up in other colors.

The Billy Reid Terry Dover Crew Sweater [$198] is the brand’s popular Dover Crew cut sweater but in an upgraded luxurious terry fabric that’s quite literally one of the most comfortable fabrics around. You can dress this sweater up or down depending on the occasion and wear it with shorts, chinos, or jeans.

You can pair that sweater with the Free Fly Hybrid Short II [$69] are built to be worn as swim shorts or regular shorts. They look like a pair of shorts you’d wear every day and the four-way stretch fabric gives you high-performance mixed with unmatched bamboo comfort. These are CLUTCH for Spring and Summer and lounging around the house because you can wear them to the beach, on the boat, in the water, out to dinner, and everywhere else in life.

The premium Civilware x Brad Leone Carbon Fiber Puncher Knife [$97, usually $140] is perfect for everyday carry and will last you a LONG time. This knife features an ambidextrous titanium clip, it’s made in the USA, has a liner lock mechanism for secure use, 2.5″ blade made of D2 stainless steel, a black carbon fiber handle, and it only weighs 2.5oz so it won’t ever hold you down.

The Holcombe Carabiner [$45] is super lightweight at only 8 grams and features a dual compartment locking system to ensure all of your EDC items remain secure. It also features an All Things® scraper and flat head screwdriver added at the end of the carabiner.

The Flint and Tinder Leather Card Wallet [$27, usually $50] is a stitched leather option with 4 card slots. The all-leather construction is designed to develop a gorgeous patina as it ages and the slim design is perfect for conserving pocket space. If you are still carrying around a bi-fold then it’s time to ditch that and get with the slim wallet lifestyle ASAP.

The NanoTorch Compact LED Flashlight ($20) 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.

We round it out today with the Purist Collective’s Mover 18oz Insulated Bottle [$50] which keeps hot liquids hot for 12 hours hot and cold liquids cold for 24 hours. It’s made with an unbreakable interior glass finish so it actually tastes like you’re drinking out of glass and not stainless steel, and the double-wall vacuum insulation works just like the other top options out there with the key difference being this has glass!

Last up is the WANDRD PRVKE 31L Backpack [$153, usually $204] is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts due to how customizable it is. The TPU-coated tarpaulin and 1680 D ballistic nylon are extremely durable and weather-resistant. This backpack’s borderline bombproof on the outside but the inside offers all sorts of customizable and protected storage so you can configure it to your needs. It’s also on sale!
