functional every day carry items

This hand-picked collection of highly functional everyday carry items is here to help you stay active at a time when we might all feel stuck. These items are here to improve your quality of living whether you’re warming up, working out, cooling down, or just living your normal life. You can shop the full collection or pick and choose your favorites by following any of the links below.

First up is the Lightwell Field Watch MKII which is 50% off today. The case is built from surgical-grade 316L stainless steel and it runs on a Japanese-made Seiko quartz movement that harnesses the power of sunlight to stay juiced up. It’s a stylish option for everyday wear.

Next we check out the all-new Adidas Ultraboost 20 Grey Two / Signal Green. These some in 24 other colorways for you to choose form but I’m feeling this style for sure. They offer a sock-like fit and are probably the best running shoes you’ll ever own and that’s not an exaggeration in the slightest bit.

The Lululemon Metal Vent Tech SS 2.0 shirt is a perfect option for warming up, working out, cooling down, lounging on the couch, running errands, and living your life. It’s made with a four-way stretch to give you a completely unencumbered range of motion and the spandex blend is perfect for shape retention when you’re sweating up a storm. This is a great shirt for running in but it’s just as comfortable for chilling out.

You can pair that shirt with the Vuori Banks Shorts which have a multi-sport design to fit an array of activities. You can wear these while running, hiking, lounging, or to the tiki bar (once they’re reopened). They wick away sweat and moisture and are quick drying.

Next up, 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.

The Mover 18oz Union Top Bottle is perfect for keeping you hydrated. This bottle will keep will keep your cold drinks ice-cold for up to 24 hours and your hot drinks warm for 12 hours. It is double-wall vacuum insulated, has a screwtop leak-proof lid, and an unbreakable interior glass finish so it tastes like you’re drinking out of a glass!

The Jaybird Tarah Pro Headphones are waterproof + sweatproof and ideal for working out. They have a 14-hour rechargeable battery which also makes them excellent headphones for your daily commute and travel.

Here we’ve got the Magpul DAKA Everyday Wallet which is made from polymer infused textile material that’s oil, water, dirt, and stain-resistant. It has multiple card slots and a central cash pocket. All in all, this is just an excellent wallet option since it won’t fall apart or weigh you down.

We round it out with the Patagonia Planing Divider Pack, a versatile everyday backpack that’s also functional enough to serve as your travel and/or gym bag. The tough recycled polyester construction with TPU-film laminate provides a highly water-resistant design to keep all of your gear safe. It has all the internal pockets you want/need in a bag and then some.

Last up is the Fjällräven Est 1960 Cap. If you’re like me then your hair is completely unruly right now. I needed a haircut months ago and my lettuce is in dire shape. This is an excellent hat from one of my absolute favorite companies.
