Your ideal collection of everyday carry gear will look different than mine and mine will look different than the guy sitting in the truck next to me at a stoplight. Every guy has unique wants and needs when it comes to his everyday carry essentials but this hand-picked collection of gear that I’ve put together here has a little something for everyone.

First up today is the Horween Leather Weekender Watch ($108) which is a custom Horween leather strap modification on the classic Timex Weekender. This gorgeous leather strap is handmade in Florida and the beauty of this watch is it can be worn every day across all of your styles and outfits.

The Dr. Martens Coronado Men’s Leather Casual Shoes ($90) are based on the company’s Original 3-Eye silhouette. This shoe’s crafted from a lightly textured Hana leather, a personal favorite of mine because of the rugged finish. These casual shoes look great with jeans or chinos.

The USA Palm Reversible Sherpa ($99) embodies comfort in ways I can’t even begin to express with my limited vocabulary. It feels like you’re wearing a cloud mixed with a soft blanket. And it’s reversible! Also, this comes in a ton of different styles for you to choose from ranging from retro to contemporary. Give it a chance and you’ll be very glad you did.

Pair that sherpa with the Flint and Tinder 365 Pant – Tapered ($82) which come in six different colors and are perfect everyday pants. Even if jeans are your preferred style you’re going to love how these chinos frame your lower half. And they’re sold in every length x waist configuration you’re looking for.

The Cactus Leather Key Organizer ($40) holds between 2 to 7 keys and is there to help you save pocket space in ways you didn’t think was possible. I was first turned onto OrbitKey a few years ago and have been a fan ever since.

The Spalted Beech + Turquoise Pocket Knife ($100) is an heirloom quality knife that’s built to last you a lifetime. The handle has a gorgeous Sonoran Turquoise inlay in the spalted beech wood. Each one of these knives is handmade in Santa Fe, New Mexico and each one is unique / no two knives are the same.

Carbon Fiber Wallet + Cash Plate ($105) 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.

Here we’ve got The Cache River Bit Driver ($60) which is an incredibly handy everyday carry tool to have with you. This is one of those items that are never nearby when I need it. The low-profile form factor designed specifically for everyday pocket carry and it features lightweight aluminum construction with a durable anodized finish. It has ball bearing pivot for smooth driving action and the magnetic bit attachment point keeps it firmly in place when it’s in use. As I said, this is just a clutch tool to have with you most times.

We round it out today with the YETI Rambler 26oz Bottle Chug Top ($40) 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. If you’re on the boat all day in the hot sun you’ll want to stay hydrated with this excellent bottle!

Last up is the Aer Duffel Pack 2 Backpack ($136) which is an all-time favorite of mine. I’ve had an Aer Fit Pack 2 for years (in black / smaller version of this) and I’ve traveled the world with it. It has a super handy zippered pocket at the bottom for your shoes as well as a massive central compartment. I often use this as my carry-on bag for flights. It also has a laptop sleeve and pockets throughout for everything you need to store.
