must have 2021 everyday carry essentials for men

The new year offers endless opportunities to improve upon the last. 2021 can be your year. A few new gear purchases might not make the difference between an otherwise mediocre year and a great one but who’s to say these everyday carry essentials won’t make each day just a little bit better? I’ve hand-picked these must-have everyday carry essentials from the best available gear so far in 2021 and each of these will add utility, comfort, and style to your daily life. You can purchase any of them individually or the full collection by following the links throughout the article!

First up is the Horween Leather Weekender Watch ($108) which is a stylish Timex watch that you can wear every day. The custom Horween leather band looks great and is handmade in Florida.

The new Danner Skyridge Boots ($160) are designed as hiking boots that can be worn on and off the trails. These are just as good in a city as they are on an overnight trip up the mountain. The Danner Dry barrier is 100% waterproof but still allows moisture to escape and the open-cell PU footbed allows heat to dissipate and air to circulate. The uppers are built from a soft suede and cotton ripstop for a durable boot that’s comfortable right out of the box and they’re really just comfortable and versatile enough to wear every single day.

The Relwen Windzip Jacket ($258) is an exclusive product you can only purchase at Huckberry. It has a breathable yet robust water-resistant exterior that can be worn in brutal weather. You can layer underneath for extremely cold conditions but the dense 60-gram down-alternative filling will otherwise keep you warm. This price point is a lot but this really is a world-class jacket that can be worn everywhere from Florida to Colorado, and the Alps to Iceland.

You can pair that jacket with the Flint and Tinder Stretch Selvage Denim Jeans ($168) which come in Slim, Straight, or Tapered. These jeans are cut from durable 13.4 oz denim fabric and have an added 1% spandex in the fabric blend to give them just the perfect amount of stretch and comfort.

For anyone out there looking to pick up a new bifold this one’s hard to beat. The Ekster Secretary Modular Bifold has RFID/NFC blocking to protect against skimming, a removable card holder for the times you want a slim wallet and not a bifold, and it holds 9+ cards as well as cash.

The Huckberry Beanie in Marled Navy ($28) is a classic ‘Fisherman Style’ beanie and it’s available in 7 different colors for you to choose from. This beanie is made from a blend of acrylic, wool, nylon, and spandex. The finished product is a beanie you can wear every day for style and warmth but one you can push to the limits of hiking and traveling.

Here we’ve got the The Cache River Bit Driver ($60) which is an incredibly handy everyday carry tool to have with you. This is one of those items that’s never nearby when I need it. The low-profile form factor designed specifically for everyday pocket carry and it features lightweight aluminum construction with a durable anodized finish. It has ball bearing pivot for smooth driving action and the magnetic bit attachment point keeps it firmly in place when it’s in use. As I said, this is just a clutch tool to have with you most times.

The premium Civilware x Brad Leone Carbon Fiber Puncher Knife ($140) is perfect for everyday carry and will last you a LONG time. This knife features an ambidextrous titanium clip, it’s made in the USA, has a liner lock mechanism for secure use, 2.5″ blade made of D2 stainless steel, a black carbon fiber handle, and it only weighs 2.5oz so it won’t ever hold you down.

We round it out today with the OrbitKey Maglock Key Clip ($43) which is a 2-part system for streamlining your everyday carry keychain. The D-ring key chain stays securely fastened to the carabiner easily but detaches easily when you need your keys and the secure Fidlock® quick-release system operates with a one-handed pull action.

Last up is the all-new Roark Day Trip Passenger 27 Backpack ($89) in Rust. This is a perfect everyday backpack as a condensed daypack-style with roll-top entry. There’s a padded internal laptop sleeve for 15″ laptops, internal mesh pockets, a zippered sunglasses pocket on top, the roll-top has a magnetic closure, and the quilted padded back feels great on your back. This is a steal at only $89, so be sure to scoop this one up before it’s gone.
