Everyday Carry Essentials For Spending Time Outdoors This Spring

outdoor everyday carry items for Spring

With Spring upon us, it’s time to think about getting outdoor again and putting the long and cold Winter behind. This curated collection of Spring’s best everyday carry items for getting outdoors and living your life can serve as a launching pad to help make each day just a little bit better. You can shop the full collection or pick your favorites as you see fit. To do so you’ll just need to follow the links throughout the article!

First up today we’ve got the throwback Timex 80 Retro Watch [$59] which comes in Black or Silver. This is from the PEAK 1980’s digital watch designs of Timex but it’s a throwback style that’s just as good today as it was years ago. It’s water-resistant, has an easy-read digital display, an expansion wrist band, and it’s perfect for everyday wear.

The Lems Shoes Leather Boulder Boot [$150] is one of the best boots out there in terms of versatility. I tend to think of these as a cross between everyday boots and travel boots because they’re actually packable (you can roll them up) but they’re truly rugged enough to withstand anything and everything you throw their way. Boots are a staple of your everydy carry essentials and these are made with wind- and water-resistant 100% full-grain leather uppers and the LemsRubber air-injected rubber outsole that’s softer, lighter and more flexible than traditional rubber.

The BeardedGoat’s Rover Anorak [$120] was built to keep you comfortable and dry as you pound the trails this Spring and get back outside after a long and dark Winter. The water-resistant DWR coating keeps you dry and beardedgoat’s rugged Rover fabric is both tough and lightweight while offering plenty of stretch so it never holds back your mobility.

You can pair that anorak with the Kuhl Silencr Pants [$85] which are constructed from lightweight and durable REFLEX™ ripstop fabric with super stretch properties. These are pants you can really get out there and charge the trails in. Or you can rock them every day comfortably. They have dual side pockets, two rear patch pockets, and two cellphone pockets (one at each thigh) which you could use for your phone or GPS. These pants also offer UPF 50 sun protection.

Next up we’ve got the Danner Bi-Fold Wallet [$60] which features a slim profile and stylish leather build. This is classified as a ‘minimalist bi-fold leather wallet’ with four card slots and a cash pocket to hold everything you need. It is also made right here in the USA.

Every aspect of The Carter Pocket Knife [$159] in Natural Micarta + Black 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.

Some of you might listen to me, many of you won’t, but owning a great umbrella is a game-changer in the Spring. The The Collapsible Umbrella [$59] from Weatherman Umbrellas has a 40″ diameter with full canopy coverage. The reinforced industrial-strength fiberglass ribs resist breaking and deforming while the vented canopy lets air through without letting water in. And when you spend more than $10 on an umbrella you tend to make sure you don’t lose it!

Here is a stylish and timeless Leather Loop Key Chain [$19] which has a brass clip to keep your keys secure and a robust leather strap. This is a classic keychain style that’s always been a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts and this particular one will develop a nice patina over time as the leather ages and takes on character.

We round it out today with the YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle Chug Top [$30] which 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. If you’re on the boat all day in the hot sun you’ll want to stay hydrated with this excellent bottle!

Last up is the Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 21L Backpack [$125] which you see here in an Indigo colorway but it comes in three other colors as well. This weather-resistant backpack is built to keep your gear dry and safe while providing enough storage space for daily use as a backpack, gym bag, or a weekender/carry-on bag when you’re traveling. The versatility and ruggedness of this backpack makes it an exceptional choice. A portion of the sale of each of these goes to Urban Assault’s scholarship for fire Classes, medical training, and college education.
