The best everyday carry gear is there for you day after day, no matter what, and doesn’t fall apart when you need it.

First up today, we check out the Momentum Watches Steelix Black-Ion. This watch is powered by a premium quartz movement, has a 22mm web nylon band, and it looks modern enough to be worn in most settings while sticking with a classic military field watch design at heart.

The OluKai Mio Li Sneakers have a perfect design for a multi-functional shoe. The drop-in heel allows you to wear these as a slip-on if you want but they’re a sneaker at heart and one you can workout in or wear on the boat. These have a dual-density PU footbed with gel insert and soft microfiber footbed which provide all-day comfort and the treaded rubber outsole offers excellent traction.

Up next is the Proof 72-Hour Merino Polo which comes in 7 different colors but I’ve obviously chosen the Stone Black colorway for this roundup. This is cut from Proof’s premium 72 Hour merino fabric that’s an extremely high-performance fabric. You can wear this for 72-hours straight, around the world, and it won’t show any signs of fatigue or odor. That’s where the name comes from, it’s built to hold up to whatever you throw at it.

These Faherty Brand Freeport Sweatshorts are just calling your name right now. They’re perfect whether you’re warming up, working out, cooling down, or more likely sitting on the couch right now with the laptop in your lap. They are made from a super soft cotton-poly French Terry blend that you will absolutely love.

Up next is the ‘Worry-Free Deodorant’ from Each & Every which uses simple, clean ingredients like coconut oil and Dead Sea salts to fight odor all-day. One thing that’s particularly great about this deodorant in addition to it being better for your skin and body than normal off-the-shelf deodorants is this company uses energizing scents that pick you up when you need it. This will keep you odor-free all day long but have you smelling (and probably feeling) better than you’re used to. Check it out!

Let’s check out the Carter Knife by The James Brand which features a VG-10 stainless steel blade for the best edge-retention possible. The machined G10 handle offers a heritage look and extremely great grip.

The Wayfinder Flux Waterproof Card Holder is a really cool and pretty unique everyday wallet option. It’s constructed out of TPU-coated polyester with RF welded seams and it’s both waterproof and hydrophobic. This means you won’t lose a wallet if you accidentally fall off a boat into the water or run it through the washing machine. It also means your cards and cash are extra protected. At only $36, it’s also a very affordable slim-wallet option.

The Mehlville Carabiner by The James Brand is a dual-compartment carabiner that’s perfect as an EDC keychain. It is machined from a solid block of aluminum and the anodized finish ensures it won’t break down and corrode like cheaper options. It also has a notch for opening bottles!

We round it out today with the Sennheiser Momentum 2 True Wireless Earbuds. These offer some of the finest sound quality on the planet, as is the case with all Sennheiser earbuds and headphones. The Momentum 2’s give you stereo sound through bespoke 7 mm dynamic drivers, deep bass, natural mids, clear treble, and improved ergonomics to fit comfortably in your ears.

Last up is the Bellroy Notebook Cover Mini + Pen so you can keep track of all your thoughts, ideas, and get your schedule in order during this odd time in life. This fits standard replaceable notebooks like Field Notes, Moleskins, etc. and it also has a built-in wallet function which you can use to store credit cards or business cards if you’d prefer.
