It’s my goal each day to ensure you guys find the best everyday carry gear available. I’m talking about the gear that’s here to have an immediate positive impact on your daily life. You can pick and choose your favorites or shop the full everyday carry collection by following any of the links below!

First up is the Q Timex Automatic Watch ($279) in a Black/Blue dial. The INDIGLO® lume makes it easy to read in the dark and this watch is based on the legendary 1979 Q diver-inspired watch. This automatic watch is perfect for everyday wear and you can dress it up or down, wear it with shorts, jeans, or a suit, and it’ll be reliable day in and day out.

The Converse Gore-Tex Utility Chuck 70 ($110). This is a hightop waterproof canvas sneaker made with Gore-Tex so they are built to last. You can rock this iconic 1970s-era Chuck-inspired shoe with jeans or chinos. They have the Chuck Taylor ankle patch and the footbed has enhanced cushioning for support and all-day comfort.

It’s officially Barbour season and I love everything about the Barbour Patch Half Zip ($150). It’s made from a soft and luxurious lambswool fabric and what really sells me on it is the shawl-style collar with an interior zip and button pocket. Barbour makes some of the best cool-weather layers on the planet and has for decades.

You can pair that Barbour Patch Half Zip with the Wellen Organic Stretch Denim Jeans ($98) which come in a Dark Wash (pictured here) and a light wash. The denim is made from 99% organic cotton but an added 1% spandex to give them the perfect amount of stretch and comfort.

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 in this roundup, we’ve got the Tanner Goods Journeyman Card Wallet. I love this slim-profile 3.5oz premium tooling leather wallet with four card slots and a large central pocket for cash. This is made right here in the USA.

The Waterproof/Windproof Dual Arc Lighter is a USB-rechargeable, windproof, and waterproof lighter that’s currently on sale on Amazon. It’s ideal for camping, hiking, survival situations, or everyday use. This really is a genius design and it’s super affordable.

The Keysmart CleanKey Mini is made from antimicrobial Copper Alloy which kills 99% of bacteria and it fits neatly onto your keychain. It’s a handy tool for high-contact situations like public touchscreens and doors. It’s also only $10 so it is a steal.

We round it out today with the Ledlenser Flex7 Powerbank ($79), a tool you should quite literally never leave home without. This genius little device is protected by water-resistant housing and packs six functions: powerbank, battery charger with charge level indicator, secure battery storage, display for capacity check, double protection against short circuits, and fast battery replacement. It boasts up to 30% faster charging time which is EXACTLY what you need on the go!

The Blunt Umbrellas Metro is clutch for this time of year when the weather can change drastically from minute to minute but you still need to run errands or walk the dog. Late Summer, Fall, and Winter bring some very wet days and getting drenched on your commute is miserable. I find that when you spend a little coin on a nicer umbrella you never lose it, unlike cheap umbrellas that are gone in an instant.
