8 Everyday Carry Essentials: Keeping Your Backpack Stocked Up

everyday carry essentials backpack gear

In today’s roundup of everyday carry essentials, we’re taking a look at one of my favorite backpacks of 2018 and a bunch of items you can stuff in that backpack to make your life easier. I’ve been rocking an Aer backpack for several years now, ever since they released the Duffel Pack 2. But the Aer Flight Back 2 (21L) is an instant improvement and one that’s perfect for your everyday life.

I’ve included some random items that you can keep stuffed away in your backpack to make life easier including a purifying water bottle from Sawyer that enables you to drink water anywhere within seconds, a portable battery, pocket knife, and more.

[1] Aer Flight Pack 2 (21L) in Black [$160]
[2] Mophie PowerStation Plus XL External Battery (w/ built-in cables) [$54.99]
[3] Appointed Workbook in Oxford Blue [$22]
[4] Everyman Grafton Pen in Black [$35]
[5] Kershaw Shuffle II Blackwash Pocket Knife w/ Bottle Opener [$18]
[6] Sawyer Select Series Water Bottle w/ Built-In Filter/Purifier [$55+]
[7] Sunski Yubas Sunglasses in Tortoise [$55]
[8] Sennheiser CX 6.00 BT Wireless in-Ear Headphones (Not Pictured) [$98]
