10 Everyday Carry Essentials That Are Rugged, Stylish, And Won’t Break The Bank

best everyday carry gear rugged

This hand-picked collection of everyday carry essentials is full of rugged and stylish gear, apparel, and accessories for men that are built to last and won’t break the bank. Some of these items could easily be priced at 3x what they are and would still be worth it. First up is the LIV Rebel GMT Classic Black Swiss watch which is powered by an incredibly precise Swiss Ronda Caliber 515.24H movement (1 jewel) and could easily sell for 2x what it’s priced at. The 41mm case diameter is right in that sweet spot where I prefer my watches. It is light by a BGW9 Super-Luminova lume and this watch was limited to only 1250 total pieces so it’s quite rare!

Below that watch we see Lems Shoes Boulder Chukka Boots are the literal perfect option for someone who travels regularly and wants to save space. They are comfortable, lightweight, and they’re designed to be easily rolled up and are packable. In the center, I’m stoked to introduce you to vibrant Sherpa Adventure Gear Indra Shirt in this Rathee Blue pattern is beyond perfect for this time of year. The woven plaid is brushed to achieve maximum softness, the cotton/polyester/wool blend is designed so the shirt is breathable, warm, and comfortable. And for every one of these shirts that is sold a donation is made to provide Elementary through College education for children in Nepal.

You can pair that shirt with your new Revtown USA Jeans. These are some of the best jeans you’ll find anywhere and they’re an absolute steal at that price point. They also come in an array of colors and fits for you to choose from. Kicking over to the right-hand column we see the SOG Knives Terminus XR which is very lightweight at only 2.6oz. It’s built to tuck neatly into your pocket for everyday carry and the handle is comfortable for regular use all day long. It has a built-in quick opening system and XR lock release to protect your hands. To the right of that EDC blade from Sog Knives is the Tactica 17-in-1 Multi-Tool is one of those brilliant multi-tools that everyone should have. It’s affordable and it is packed full of tiny tools you use in everyday life but often don’t have the necessary tool for the task.

I’m loving the bright and colorful Howler Brothers Unstructured Snapback that’s here to keep your head protected from the sun. To lock in that warmth in the fall and keep those pesky ticks out of your hair on the trails. Or hide that bald spot if that’s what you’re going for. The Topo Designs Klettersack is made in Colorado and built to tackle whatever you throw at it. This can be a versatile daily use backpack or one that you can travel with or take camping. The all-around versatility of its lightweight construction and durable materials mean this bag will last a long time.

We round it out today with the Madera Poquito Cherry Wood Slim Wallet which has a cash strap to hold in additional cards and/or cash and the main body of this wallet is built to hold 2-8 cards. The slim profile is easy to carry in your pocket without even noticing it. Last up is the Sunski Treelines offer 100% full-spectrum UV protection from (UVA and UVB). They are built to hold up when life gets hectic and you throw all of the elements at them.

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.

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.
