You should always be looking for gear that lasts as long as possible when it comes to your everyday carry essentials. This collection of the best men’s everyday carry items is chock full of gear that’s built to last. Each of these items is made with form and function in mind. You can pick and choose your favorites or shop the full collection by following the links throughout this article!

First up today is the Rotate North Altitude Pilot’s Watch which comes in a Black on Black style or a Black Watch/Blue Face if you’d prefer that. This watch is powered by a self-winding NH35a, 21,600 bhp automatic, 24 jewel movement that’s extremely reliable and easily serviceable so this watch will last you a lifetime. It can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion but it’s built as a perfect everyday and adventure watch.

The Danner Logger 917 Boots are perfect for late Summer, Fall, and Winter. The Ortholite footbed has three layers of density to give you the most comfortable ride. Their Vibram® 917 outsole is built exclusively for Danner and provides some of the best traction on wet terrain of any boot on the planet. What I particularly love about these his how you can rock them with jeans or chinos and tuck over the cuff to make them look like everyday shoes if you want.

Next up is a really cool piece, The Hoodie by Asket ($110), which is about to be your new favorite layer for the next few months. The Hoodie by Asket comes in Navy, Black, and Dusty Green. This has a heavy-weight feel, 100% organic cotton loopback, it’s double lined, and I actually love the removal of the kangaroo pouch pocket that makes this a more streamlined look. Make sure you check out this awesome release from Asket because it could sell out quick.

Pair that hoodie with the Howler Brothers ATX Work Pants which come in two colors. These are made from brushed cotton twill with a bit of added stretch for a free and natural movement with your body. You can wear these on the trails, tailgating, or lounging around the house.

The Woolly Made Laser-cut Leather 4-Card Wallet is a really cool slim wallet. It is laser cut and hand-crafted in Portland, Oregon and the laser cutting adds this awesome vintage style to it that you rarely find these days. This is Woolly Made’s most popular wallet and for good reason, as it’s strong and rugged enough to last a lifetime.

Here we check out a unique everyday carry pocket knife from Deejo Knives ($70) 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 NanoTorch – Compact LED Flashlight is a compact everyday carry tool which fits snugly on your keychain and packs a ton of power into such a small flashlight (25 lumens). At only $20 this is a steal.

Next we have the Wood Visor Freshener from Drift ($8), a really cool product that’s only $8 and it is something you probably never realized you need until you discovered it exists. This is a high-quality block of sustainably-sourced cedar wood that has been soaked in essential and fragrance oils to deliver real scents (not chemicals). The Drift Wood Visor Freshener has a balanced scent profile of dark rum, caramel, allspice, plum, and clove. At only $8 this is an absolute steal and one of the cooler products I’ve come across so far in 2020.

We round it out today with the Brunton Echo Zoom Monoculars which is ideal for fishing, hunting, golfing, birding, and hiking. This is a cool everyday carry tool that a lot of people look past and one that’s excellent to keep in your daypack for your adventures.

Last up today is the new Sandqvist Bernt Lightweight 20L Packable Rolltop backpack which comes in Black (pictured here) or Moss Green. It has a large laptop compartment and all of the storage you want/need from an everyday backpack. The 100% recycled ripstop nylon is extremely durable but also sustainable and the rolltop enclosure means you can expand this bag to fit between 20-24L of gear.
