10 Of The Best Damn Everyday Carry Essentials For Guys

top everyday carry items for men

I’ve hand-selected this collection of everyday carry items to help you guys navigate the ups and downs of everyday life. Each of these everyday carry accessories is here to help you live your best life starting the moment you ‘add to cart’. Let’s dive right into it.

Up first today is the Four Roses 2020 Limited Edition Small Batch, a limited release of only approximately 14,040 hand-numbered bottles. It is non-chill filtered and bottled at 111.4 proof and blended from four hand-selected batches. The batches include a 12-year-old Bourbon from the OBSV recipe, a 12- year-old OESV, a 16-year-old OESK, and a 19-year-old OBSK.

2020 Master Distiller of the Year Brent Elliott says each of these batches could’ve been sold as a world-class single barrel but “in this case the sum is even greater than the parts” and these batches blended together “bring a perfect balance of bright, vibrant flavors and aromas from the 12 and 16-year-old barrels combined with the oak tones and aged expressions from the 19- year-old batch.” Sounds pretty good to me. Some bottles will be available at select retailers in September and anyone interested can also register for a lottery on the Four Roses website (between August 25 and September 9) for the chance to purchase a bottle in person at the Four Roses Distillery Visitor Center.

Next we’ve got the The Santiago Boots by Adelante Shoe Co. which are a nubuck leather chukka boot handmade by expert craftsman in Guatemala. The Goodyear welted construction is durable and fully resoleable and the stacked leather heel is as stylish as it is comfortable.

I pretty much live in short sleeves year-round and that’s why I wanted to turn you gentlemen onto Tropical Bros. The Sailfish Hawaiian Shirt from Tropical Bros is made from a custom ‘super stretch’ Hawaiian fabric. This magnificent party shirt has a moisture-wicking outer shell, wood buttons, a classic front pocket, and it’s machine washable. Best part? This breathable short-sleeve buttondown is perfect for cruising around on the boat from tiki hut to beach bar. You’ll automatically receive 20% off your entire order by clicking over to Tropical Bros from BroBible!

You can and should pair that shirt with the Flint and Tinder Stretch Defender Denim Jeans which come in Slim or Straight cuts, here you see the Slim Cut. These jeans are cut and hand-sewn in Los Angeles using extremely high-quality denim that is infused with 3% aramid fibers to make them one of the longest-lasting pairs of jeans around.

Up next is the gorgeous Edgemere Watch by Martenero, just one of the many world-class watches featured from Watch Gang. With Watch Gang, you fill out a profile on ‘what makes you tick’ and they’ll send new watches right to your door so you can try them out. Choose the plan that’s right for you and once the watch arrives, if you love it you can buy it at up to 5x less than the retail price. AND each week you’ll be entered to win a Rolex, TAG Heuer and Seiko from Watch Gang! You can click here to get started today and finally discover which watches truly best suit your style.

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.

The Benchmade Griptillian Knife w/ Drop Point Blade is a steal at $125 because this knife could easily retail for 2x that price. The blade is made from CPM-S30V stainless steel and it has a custom-made Griptillian® nylon handle for easy use and extreme grip.

The NanoTorch – Compact LED Flashlight is a compact everyday carry tool which fits snugly on your keychain and packs a ton of power into such a small flashlight (25 lumens). At only $20 this is a steal.

We round it out today with 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. If you’re on the boat all day in the hot sun you’ll want to stay hydrated with this excellent bottle!

Last up today is the Patagonia Refugio Pack 28L, a sizable backpack for everyday use or quick trips. It’s constructed out of tough and water-resistant recycled nylon. It features a spacious main compartment with smaller organization pockets throughout, two large water bottle pockets on the side, and the highly-breathable mesh on the back panel is ideal for all-day comfort.
