First up is the Lum-Tec Combat B45 Watch which is housed in a 43mm case and it is powered by a Swiss-made Ronda 515.24H movement with a 24-hour hand that can indicate time in a second time zone. It is protected by military-grade AR coating and it is water-resistant up to 200 meters.

The Vans No. 44 aka the Vans Authentic is their original and iconic design. It’s finished with metal eyelets, the Vans flag label, and their original waffle outsole. The rubber waffle outsole provides some of the best grip around and these stylish shoes can fit all of your everyday attire.

The Forty Five Slub Pocket Tee is a brand new tee release from Forty Five and this crazy soft shirt comes in 10 different colors for you to choose from. The clean and simple design does wonders for framing your body and it’s garment-dyed for additional softness. This shirt is made right here in the USA and is a perfect length to keep untucked.

Go ahead and pair that shirt with the Wellen Cruiser Hybrid Short – 7.5″ which come in four different colorways. These are made from a quick-dry stretch material built with all-day comfort in mind. These are meant to be a hybrid between swim shorts and everyday shorts and they strike that balance perfectly.

Up next, we check out a unique everyday carry pocket knife from Deejo Knives 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 Mehlville 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!

Here we have the Wood Visor Freshener from Drift, 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.

Up next is the Magpul DAKA Everyday Wallet which is made from polymer infused textile material that’s oil, water, dirt, and stain-resistant. The welded seams create impenetrable seals and this wallet makes sure you won’t sacrifice any precious pocket space. This wallet will keep your ID/cash dry and stay new for years to come.

Meant to closely mimic the shape of the ear for maximum comfort, the Klipsch McLaren T5 II True Wireless Sport Earbuds are manufactured about 25 percent smaller than other options, meaning they won’t fall out or have sound interrupted when you’re in motion. And with a new signal boost antenna — delivering a high-quality, seamless Bluetooth® wireless connection — you’ll have maximum sound quality. The first 500 orders will receive a 30% off coupon code from the McLaren Gear Store, with codes being emailed once the product ships, so make sure to order yours now.

Last up today is the Filson Dryden Ballistic Nylon Backpack which is constructed out of highly weather-resistant Cordura® and it has a double-reinforced bottom so your gear stays dry, secure, and the backpack lasts you a lifetime.
