This collection of highly-functional everyday carry items is full of gear that’s built to last AND add value to your daily life. These are tools, accessories, and apparel you can use each and every day and they’re built to hold up.

First up today we’ve got the authentic military Hawk Aviators from Randolph Engineering which are made right here in the USA. The aerodynamic style is meant to fit most faces perfectly and their curvature is supported by sharp angles and a shallow teardrop. The SkyForce Air™ lite lenses with Vector™ Anti-Reflective & Blue Wave™ lens technology provide 100% UVA and UVB protection and each pair comes with a genuine leather hard case and microfiber cleaning cloth.

Next are the Corridor NYC Recess Runners which are a personal favorite of mine. I’m a sucker of that 80s-style throwback trainer sneaker, especially during the Summer and Fall when you can rock these with shorts or jeans. They’re built for working out but you can comfortably wear them all day while chilling. Such a stylish and versatile shoe, just magnificent.

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!

Like all of their rugged athletic gear, the Set Short by Ten Thousand was ‘built by high performers, for high performers’. I’ve only recently been shown the light of Ten Thousand workout shorts but I was immediately a believer. You can immediately sense that these were built by athletes who knew exactly what was needed in a pair of athletic shorts. The Set Short was designed with the mission to create that’s at home in the water and at the gym. You can rock these while working out, chilling, and just living your life. The four-way stretch naturally moves with your body and the low profile waistband is perfect for the water. They are water repellant + quick-drying and resistant to chlorine + saltwater damage. Check ’em out!

The G-Shock GM5600-1 in Stainless offers resistance against electric shock, gravity, low temperatures, vibration, water, and impact. It features an electro-luminescent backlight with Afterglow which allows you to clearly and easily see your watch in low-light situations and it’s water-resistant up to 200 meters so it can easily handle showers, swims, and surf sessions as well as being perfect for everyday wear.

Every aspect of The Carter Knife by The James Brand has been carefully considered and crafted to deliver you a perfect pocket knife for daily use, one that will last you a lifetime if you treat it well, and one that is lightweight and discreet enough to easily carry in your pocket without taking up too much space. This Grey + Stainless colorway is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts all over I’m 100% on board with it.

The YETI Rambler 26oz Bottle Chug Top 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. Go on and treat yourself to a new water bottle and thank me later!

Next up is the Aer Fit Pack 2 Backpack which is an all-time favorite of mine. I’ve had an Aer Fit Pack 2 for years and I’ve traveled the world with it. It has a super handy zippered pocket at the bottom for your shoes as well as a massive central compartment. I often use this as my carry-on bag for flights. It also has a laptop sleeve and pockets throughout for everything you need to store.

We round it out with one of the most exciting products to hit the market this Summer, something I’m extremely blown away by. The Tempo ‘Hungover AF’ Natural Hangover Remedy is the #1 hangover cure product available, hands down. You just pop three capsules of this hangover supplement before bed and the Tempo ‘Hungover AF’ Natural Hangover Remedy goes to work with a blend of herbs, vitamins, electrolytes, and minerals to have you feeling like new when you wake up. If you’ve suffered any extreme hangovers at any point in your life then this one’s for you. Trust it!

Last up today we check out the world-class Klipsch McLaren T5 II True Wireless Sport Earbuds. Meant to closely mimic the shape of the ear for maximum comfort, the Klipsch McLaren T5 II True Wireless Sport Earbuds are manufactured about 25 percent smaller than other options, meaning they won’t fall out or have sound interrupted when you’re in motion. And with a new signal boost antenna — delivering a high-quality, seamless Bluetooth® wireless connection — you’ll have maximum sound quality. The first 500 orders will receive a 30% off coupon code from the McLaren Gear Store, with codes being emailed once the product ships, so make sure to order yours now.
