10 Everyday Carry Essentials That Are Rugged Enough For You

best everyday carry rugged essentials 2019

This hand-picked collection of everyday carry essentials is all about rugged gear that’s built to last. I hate spending any amount of money on something if I know it has a short shelflife. All of these EDC items are built to withstand the test of time.

Up first, the Dango Products D01 Dapper Wallet is designed to hold 12 cards, is made in the USA, and has a slim and sophisticated profile that uses clean lines and contrasting materials. The silicon band will also function as a cash strap.

The Hanwag Tashi Boots in Chestnut are made from a hard yet supple Yak leather that withholds extreme stress. These are a rugged pair of boots made in Germany and built to last you a lifetime. The Vibram® Tessin outsole gives you traction on any surface (wet or dry) and the cushioned insole provides all-day comfort.

On the right here is a very special limited-release from a Budweiser x Highly Clutch collaboration. The Moon Life Astronaut Tri-Blend Tee pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the NASA Moon Landing with custom artwork.

You can pair that shirt with the Faherty Brand Overdyed Denim jeans which feature a classic 5-pocket build and the dye is designed to slowly fade over time so the more you wear these jeans the better they’ll look and the better they’ll fit even though they already look amazing.

The Fisher Space Pen Raw Brass Bullet Pen is currently on sale over on Amazon. This is the same design the astronauts use in outer space and it’s built to write under the harshest of conditions. And dollar for dollar, it’s hard to beat the Leatherman Skeletool KBx Pocket Knife. This is a perfect knife for everyday carry with a sharp blade and compact design for easily tucking away in your pocket.

The Tom Beckbe Leather Loop Keychain is handmade in the USA with a handsome and minimalist design. It will develop a gorgeous patina over time and truly show itself to you over the years. It’s an excellent keychain if you’re not looking for bells and whistles.

Make sure to grab the Nomad Rugged Cable before your typical Lightning cable falls to pieces. This one measures 1.5 meters and has an outer shield made from high-end TPE which is the same strong material used in audio cables for guitars. This iPhone charging cable also has a reinforced core so it won’t fall apart. This thing’s legit.

The Mystery Ranch Street Zen (25L) Backpack has a front EDC compartment for all of your everyday carry essentials and a spacious main compartment to hold all of your gear. The ventilated mesh back panel ensures you won’t die of sweat while wearing this around like you’ll get with some lesser-made backpacks. This is perfect for everyday wear, travel, or as a gym bag.

Lastly, I can assure you that you will feel better every day of your life if you start drinking more water now. With the Hydro Flask 24 oz. Insulated Water Bottle you can stay hydrated and your water will stay cold all day long (and hot liquid will stay warm).

As always, you can pick and choose your favorite items from the list above or you can scoop the entire collection as you see it and REALLY treat yourself. If you have any accessories or apparel that you believe deserves to be featured here you can always hit me up on Twitter at @casspa or email at cass@brobible.com.

I’m sure most of you have realized this by now, but I publish a new edition of the ‘Everyday Carry‘ essentials roundup Monday through Thursday here at BroBible with the ‘Things We Want‘ gear guide going out on Fridays. If you know of a product that should be featured here you can hit me up on email at cass@brobible.com, or find me on Twitter at @casspa. Or if you’ve got an idea for a daily theme I should touch on then hit me up!

I’m sure you’ve noticed by now but I can’t list the prices for an Amazon product because they typically change daily and it’s a violation of their TOS. That’s why it’s always listed as ‘Buy on Amazon’ instead of the price like the other items. I apologize for that confusion but I prefer to play by the rules, my dudes.
