When life gets stressful we look for ways to dim the noise. One way to achieve this is to pick up some gear that makes our daily lives easier. This hand-picked collection of everyday carry gear is here to make your life more chill from start to finish. You can shop the full collection or pick and choose your favorites by following any of the links below.

First up, these Frogskins Mix shades come from the Oakley Frogskins™ Collection. These look like they came fro a time-machine and straight from the 1980s which is what I love most about them. They offer up 12% light transmission, increased contrast in bright light conditions, and are perfect for cruising on the boat, laying out back by the pool, or taking in some sun. They also come in a bunch of different styles.

These OluKai Nalukai Sandals are ideal of Summer. They come in three shades of leather and are made with non-marking rubber soles so you can wear them on the boat without scuffing up the white deck.

The Wellen Hemp Tee truly is a spectacular t-shirt which comes in five different colorways. It is made from a hemp and organic cotton blend and these hemp fibers take the dye differently than cotton so the finished product is actually a really cool looking shirt you don’t often see.

You can pair that shirt with the Faherty Brand All Day Shorts which look like regular shorts but can be worn as swimtrunks whenever you want. They durable water repellant (DWR) finish is super quick-drying and these can be worn all Summer long.

Moving on, we’ve got the Steelix Black-Ion Watch from Momentum Watches. This watch is powered by a premium quartz movement, has a 22mm web nylon band, and it looks modern enough to be worn in most settings while sticking with a classic military field watch design at heart.

Up next, we check out a unique everyday carry pocket knife from Deejo Knives 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 KeySmart Pro w/ Tile Smart Location is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts all over. This customizable keychain also has a built-in location tracker so it never goes missing!

Here we’ve got the Jaybird Vista Earthproof Wireless Headphones in black. These earbuds have been overhauled to meet the military’s MIL-STD 810G requirements. If they’re rugged enough for the troops they’re good enough for you, right? In order to receive the MIL-STD 810G certification the ‘Earthproof’ Vistas had to endure ‘repeated shock, vibration, drop and crush tests, as well as withstanding tropical humidity, hurricane-force water and desert sandstorm conditions.’

We round it out today with The Notetaker by Bellroy. This handy pen is cased in durable ceramic anodized aluminum, writes with a ballpoint pen, and comes with a refillable blank ink cartridge.

Last up is the YETI Rambler 26oz Bottle Chug Top 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. Go on and treat yourself to a new water bottle and thank me later!
