First up today is the Leatherman Tread Tempo LT Watch + Multi-Tool ($399) which is an eye-catching wristwatch combined with Leatherman’s amazing multi-tool design. This watch has 28-tools right on your wrist. I remember first seeing their ‘Tread’ years ago when my cousin got the multi-tool bracelet and at the time I thought this was the natural evolution. Basically, each link in the watch strap represents a different tool. The full list of tools includes screwdrivers, Hex Drivers, a bottle opener, socket drive adapters, carbide glass breaker, and all sorts of wrench sizes. 28 tools right on your wrist! And it’s made at Leatherman’s factory in Portland.

The Rancourt & Co. Russell Boot ($375) are made in Maine using Horween leather sourced from Chicago. These truly are world-class boots that you can wear every day as work boots or stylish boots. Rancourt’s better than the rest at making badass versatile boots and every feature of these is top shelf.

The The High Sierra Shirt by California Cowboy ($148) in ‘Playa Frio’ is handsewn in Santa Ana, California. One cool feature of this shirt is it has a dry pocket with water-resistant construction and hydrophobic zipper protect your phone from splashes and spills. There’s also a lot hidden under the hood with this shirt as it includes a beer koozie, bottle opener, and stack of conversation starter cards.

You can pair that excellent shirt with the Flint and Tinder All-American Stretch Denim Jeans ($128) which come in every length/waist configuration. They are cut, sewn, and washed in Los Angeles and have a 1% stretch added for comfort and flexibility. These jeans feature herringbone pocketing, tucked belt loops, and detailed back pocket stitching.

This Nite Ize S-Biner Ahhh ($8) is super affordable and just a great option to buy in bulk. You can use it as a keychain or keep it attached to your backpack to hook your gear on the outside. For only eight bucks, this is a perfect addition to your collection of everyday carry essentials.

The United By Blue High Fold Waffle Beanie ($28) comes in Burgundy, Black, or Grey. This stylish waffle knit beanie locks in the warmth and it’s made from recycled materials. And for every product sold, United by Blue removes 1 pound of trash from the ocean so you can feel good about buying this!

Next up we’ve got the SOG Knives Flash AT EDC Pocket Knife ($75). 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 all-new Slim Leather Card Wallet ($50) is a stitched leather option with 4 card slots. The all-leather construction is designed to develop a gorgeous patina as it ages and the slim design is perfect for conserving pocket space. If you are still carrying around a bi-fold then it’s time to ditch that and get with the slim wallet lifestyle ASAP.
