We kick it off today with the Martenero ‘Kerrison’ Watch which is a very versatile watch you can either dress up or down depending on the occasion. This watch is powered by a Japanese Miyota 9015 automatic movement that stays juiced up using the motion of your wrist and it has a 42-hour power reserve for when you take it off. The leather strap is made in the USA, this watch is water-resistant up to 50-meters, and the case is 316L stainless steel.

These CLAE Malone Sneakers come in three colorways for you to choose from. I’m a huge fan of this clean white sneaker look for Summer and these can be stylishly worn with shorts or pants. The molded EVA footbed provides all-day comfort and the supple Nubuck leather is built to endure years of rugged wear.

The Proof Merino-Blend Travel Shirt we see here is White with Black Check but it also comes in a Black with White Check if you’d prefer the inverse of this shirt. This is made from a premium blend of temperature-regulating Merino wool and a polyester blend. This shirt is moisture-wicking, breathable, and temperature-regulating due to this high-tech blend and it makes for a perfect travel companion.

You can pair that shirt with the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants. These pants come in 13 different colors and you can choose them in Slim or Straight cut. They’re sold in every Waist x Length configuration you’d want and they are cut like a jean but meant to fit and feel like a Chion. They also have a 2% spandex to give you a full range of motion.

Here 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.

Up next is the ‘Worry-Free Deodorant’ from Each & Every which uses simple, clean ingredients like coconut oil and Dead Sea salts to fight odor all-day. One thing that’s particularly great about this deodorant in addition to it being better for your skin and body than normal off-the-shelf deodorants is this company uses energizing scents that pick you up when you need it. This will keep you odor-free all day long but have you smelling (and probably feeling) better than you’re used to. Check it out!

The James Brand Mehlville Carabiner is a dual-compartment carabiner that’s perfect as an EDC keychain. It is machined from a solid block of aluminum and the anodized finish ensures it won’t break down and corrode like cheaper options. It also has a notch for opening bottles!

The Red Wing Heritage Card Holder is made in the USA using authentic S.B. Foot Tanning leather. This slim card wallet features four card slots (2 on each side) and a central cash pocket for your bills.

We round it out today with the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 which are unlike any headphones you’ve ever used before. Not because they have unrivaled sound quality, which they do, but the first-of-its-kind Bose Augmented Reality platform makes new things possible with these smart headphones. They have an adaptive mic for superior pickup, are optimized for Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa, they’ve got 11 levels of noice cancellation, and the Bose AR system works with enabled apps to help you interact with the world around you like never before.

Last up today is the Sandqvist Bernt 20L Rolltop Backpack which is seen here in Black but also comes in Green or Navy which is made from extra tough Cordura® EcoMade polyester. The large 20-liter capacity is big enough to hold all of your gear. The 13″ side-access laptop sleeve fits most standard laptops and the water-resistant fabric keeps all of your gear dry and secure. I love the roll-top design which makes everything easily accessible from the top.
