Spring stylish functional everyday items

Kick off the new season with some new gear. That sounds simple enough, right? Now all it takes is you hopping into action and mixing things up a bit. Just follow the links throughout the article and thank me later for the great recommendations.

First up today we’ve got the throwback Timex 80 Vintage 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.

These Diadora Eclipse 1995 Sneakers [$220] are made in Italy with generations of experience. These 90’s inspired trainers are top shelf through and through. They’re made with premium full-grain leather and mesh uppers and a classic lugged trainer outsole for a perfectly retro vibe.

The The Heavy Bag Tee by Tayloro Stitch [$45] is made from a heavyweight 8 oz cotton/polyester blend that requires no water to manufacture. It has a fully taped shoulder seam for long-lasting durability and a tailored fit after being pre-shrunk. Wht you’re going to love the most about this shirt is the weight, feel, and fit. It’s that good.

You can pair that t-shirt with the Kuhl Renegade Shorts – 8″ [$75] which are rugged everyday shorts built with technical performance in mind. They are built from a two-way stretch, air-textured nylon that has a cotton-like feel and the material is soft, strong, and breathable. Perfect for all Spring and Summer!

Here we’ve got a Custom Deejo Knives EDC Pocket Knife [$79] which truly is one of the coolest options on the planet for building a new pocket knife. You can fully customize it by choosing the Finishing (mirror/titanium), Weight (15/27/37g), Handle (Wood vs Composite), and you can add a custom blade tattoo and/or text on the handle. This can truly be your own pocket knife through and through. These also make awesome gifts!

Next is 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.

Here we’ve got 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!

The Upstate Stock Eco-Cotton Watchcap in Cherry Red [$29] is knit in New Jersey and finished in Brooklyn using a thick knit design to keep your head warm in cold weather and maintain its shape. It’s sustainably made from Upstate’s signature Eco-cotton.

We round it out with the Jaybird Tarah Pro Headphones [$130] which are waterproof + sweatproof and ideal for working out. They have a 14-hour rechargeable battery which also makes them excellent headphones for your daily commute and travel. These provide world-class sound and you can workout as hard as you’d ever want to in them.

Last up is the Aer Fit Pack 2 Backpack [$135] 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.
