The Converse x FOG Essentials Skidgrip Shoe is my favorite streetwear release of the Summer. It just dropped but you can still pick it up today if you act quick. This is a reboot of the Skidgrip Con-Rad which was a go-to style for skaters and surfers in the 1980s. This style was a childhood favorite of designer Jerry Lorenzo and he’s brought it back to life with the Converse x FOG Essentials Skidgrip.

The Converse x FOG Essentials Skidgrip Shoe is a hightop with a digitally printed archival pattern. It has a padded collar and OrthoLite sock liner (love OrthoLite!), Fear of God ESSENTIALS and Chuck 70 vintage license plates, and can be laced up with an oval lace or a cotton flat lace. These look great with jeans or shorts and you can wear them year-round.

The stylish Howler Brothers Rodanthe Flannel featured here is a Shadow Plaid x Mirage Blue pattern that works well with greens, blues, tans, and neutral colors. This is an excellent late Summer into Fall shirt with a built-in sunglass cleaning microfiber at hem, reinforced elbow patches for durability, dual button through chest pockets, and it’s finished with enameled buttons.

You can pair that shirt with the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants in Charcoal. These pants are available in 14 different colors as well as Slim, Straight, and Tapered cuts. They are a blend of 98% cotton and 2% spandex for a little added comfortable stretch. The blended 8oz fabric makes them perfect for year-round wear.

Next up we have the Ledlenser MT18 ‘Brighter Than A Car Headlight’ Flashlight. This incredibly powerful flashlight weighs only 21.9 oz (620 grams) and measures 6.74-inches which means you can easily tuck it into your backpack or center console. This flashlight pumps out 3,000 lumens and stretches nearly 1,800 feet. If you want to treat yourself to something spectacular this flashlight isn’t cheap ($199) but you’ll be buying one of the best EDC products on the planet.

Next, we’re looking at the SOG Knives Aegis AT Pocket Knife for everyday carry. The D2 stainless steel blade measures 3.45-inches and is cryogenically heat-treated for world-class edge retention and durability. This lightweight and long-lasting knife fits comfortably in your pocket or on your belt and is perfect for everyday use.

The Ridge Aluminum Wallet + Money Clip is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts worldwide. This one seen here is the Black model but it also comes in a few different colorways for you to choose from. Remarkably, it only weighs 2oz which is insanely lightweight and won’t ever weigh down your pockets. It holds between 1-12 cards, is RFID-blocking, and has an integrated money clip for your cash.

Here we have the Wood Visor Freshener from Drift, a really cool product that’s only $8 and it is something you probably never realized you need until you discovered it exists. This is a high-quality block of sustainably-sourced cedar wood that has been soaked in essential and fragrance oils to deliver real scents (not chemicals). The Drift Wood Visor Freshener has a balanced scent profile of dark rum, caramel, allspice, plum, and clove. At only $8 this is an absolute steal and one of the cooler products I’ve come across so far in 2020.

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!

Last up today is the Topo Designs Rover Pack – Tech which is a world-class everyday backpack or one that’s perfect for quick trips. This backpack’s made with a rugged and tough 1000D nylon exterior. It is water-resistant to keep all of your gear safe inside and the spacious 20-liter main compartment is big enough for all of your daily needs. It also has specialized pockets throughout including an external laptop pocket for 15-inch laptops.
