10 Everyday Carry Essentials For A Weekend Away

everyday carry essentials weekender

Do you ever want to pack up in a hurry and get away for a weekend? I certainly do and that’s true more than every lately. I love quick 2-to-4 night trips to new places and for those times I want to pack as little gear as possible for the trip. That’s why I’ve pulled together this collection of everyday carry essentials for a weekender. You can shop the full collection or pick and choose your favorites by following any of the links below.

First up today is the G-Shock GM5600B-3 Watch ($200) which is part of their classic DW-5600 series with stainless steel added for a sharp new look. This watch is a BEAST. It is resistant against electric shock, gravity, low temperatures, vibration, water, and impact. It will hold up to anything you throw its way and look great every single day.

Typically, Quoddy boots are made to order but they’ve released a few pairs of the Quoddy Bowhunter Boot in ‘Grizzly Peanut’ Leather ($310) which you can scoop up today instead of getting stuck on a waiting list. These high-end leather boots are perfect for Fall, Winter, and Spring. You can wear them on the trails or in the streets of Boston. These boots will pair perfectly with a pair of chinos or jeans and you can rock them all day every day in comfort.

The Outerknown Blanket Shirt in Pacific Old Coast Plaid ($148) also comes in seven different shades of plaid for you to choose from. This is a perfect shit and/or travel layer for when you want to get away for the weekend.

You can pair that shirt with the Flint and Tinder 365 Corduroy Pants ($98) which come in Slim or Straight cuts and four different colors to choose from. Corduroy Season is the best season when it comes to pants. I’ve always loved cords, their fit, feel, and versatility and this pair is made 8oz blended fabric that’s perfect for year-round wear.

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.

The The Ridge Carbon Fiber Wallet + Cash Plate ($125) is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts because of how lightweight it is and the superior craftsmanship. This minimalist wallet holds between 1-12 cards and has the elastic cash strap to hold all of your bills. This wallet only weighs 1.7oz which is unbelievably light compared to the competition.

The Tanner Goods Memori Mechanico Pen ($55) is a twist-action refillable ballpoint pen made in Portland, Oregon. The smooth twist action allows for quick deployment and this pen’s machined grooves give you the best grip around. It is sold with a medium Schmidt P900 Parker style cartridge of black ink and you can load up on those so this pen lasts you a lifetime.

It’s time to refresh your boxer brief situation by ditching the old and getting with the new. Thankfully, MeUndies is here to give you 8 different styles that are perfect for the Fall. You’ll save $8 on each pair if you order them monthly which is a steal. They are made from 92% MicroModal® and 8% elastane which are natural, comfortable, sustainable, and breathable fibers.

We round it out with the Daneson Combo 2-Pack Malt & Bourbon Toothpicks ($18) which includes one pack of each. These are great for people like myself who carry around a lot of nervous energy and don’t want to look like a doofus with a fidget spinner. And for every tree that’s cut down to make these the company plants 100 NEW trees so you’re actually doing a good thing buy purchasing these.

Last up today is the Patagonia Stand Up Duffel – 42L ($199) in Coriander Brown. This is a perfect weekender duffel and/or travel bag for trips lasting a few days and nights. It’s built from burly organic cotton and polyester canvas that retains shape and the durable TPU covers the bag to keep away dirt and grime. This bag offers a lot of space with 42 liters.
