Stylish And Rugged Everyday Gear For Guys

stylish and rugged everyday gear for guys

This roundup of the best men’s everyday gear is here to make each day of your life just a little bit better. From head to toe, the start of the day to the finish, this hand-picked collection of gear is full of items that are built to last.

First up today, 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!

The Lems Shoes Boulder Boots [$125] 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 1200 denier nylon uppers and the LemsRubber air-injected rubber outsole that’s softer, lighter and more flexible than traditional rubber.

The Free Fly Bamboo Heritage Polo [$64] is made from a soft bamboo-blend of fabric with a relaxed and worn-in feel. It offers up 50 UPF sun protection from the sun, a left chest pocket, and a modern four-button design.

You can pair that polo with the Duer Performance Denim Jeans [$129] which is made from Duer’s proprietary L2X Performance Denim with elastic stretch and it includes CoolMax® fiber technology for moisture control and temperature regulation. If you are looking for comfy jeans you can wear all Spring and Summer and not overheat AND they won’t fall apart on you then these are exactly what you’re looking for.

Next up is the Tactica M.020 Camping Tool Card [$35] which is an incredibly awesome and useful multi-tool you can tuck right into your wallet. On this compact credit card-sized tool you’ll get a Ferro rod fire starter, flat screwdriver, rope cutter, can opener, rope tensioner, tent leg puller, scraper, mini saw, and even a sundial! This is one of those super useful multi-tools that’s great to have on hand in a pinch but it’s perfect for camping.

The Holcombe Carabiner [$45] is super lightweight at only 8 grams and features a dual compartment locking system to ensure all of your EDC items remain secure. It also features an All Things® scraper and flat head screwdriver added at the end of the carabiner.

Next, we see the Dango Products D01 Dapper Wallet [$69] which is so much more than a typical wallet. It holds up to 12-cards, is RFID-blocking, and has aerospace-grade anodized aluminum chassis so it’s outrageously durable but still lightweight at only 2-ounces.

Here we’ve got the G-Shock GM5600B-1 Watch [$129, Sale] which is part of their classic DW-5600 series with stainless steel added for a sharp new look. This watch is a BEAST. It is resistant against electric shock, gravity, low temperatures, vibration, water, and impact. It will hold up to anything you throw its way and look great every single day.

We round it out with the Native Union Key Cable On-the-Go Charger [$30] is Apple MFi & USB-IF certified and a keychain doohickey to keep your phone juiced up anywhere. It includes a concealed lighting and USB plug for charging your phone on the go and looks great as an EDC accessory.

Last up today is the Wexley Stem Daypack in Cordura [$129] which comes in Khaki/Grey or Navy. This is a lightweight and technical daily-use backpack with a 17 liter capacity that’s made from a hyper durable 1000D Cordura exterior. It has two hidden interior pockets and a 15-inch laptop sleeve inside the main compartment. The thermo-formed honeycomb EVA foam back panel is comfortable and breathable for all day wear and it really is just a stylish modern look for a backpack.
