50 ‘Things We Want’ This Week: Fishing Gear, Watches, EDC Essentials, And More

things we want August gear for men

How are we doing today, gentlemen? With another week of hard work in the books it is now time to treat ourselves to some retail therapy. That’s why I spend hours upon hours each week putting together the ‘Things We Want‘ gear guide for men, so you can buy the best.

This way you have direct access to the hottest gear for men. If you’ve been reading the ‘Things We Want’ for yours then you’ll notice the new look design which is meant to fit more with the style of my daily Everyday Carry Essentials features.

After years of tweaking the format of this weekly gear guide, I’ve found that you bros tend to love the grid-style pictures the best so that’s why I’ve been trying to include more of these days. As always, if you know of a product that you think should be featured in my weekly Gear Guide then feel free to hit me up via email at cass@brobible.com.

Abel Reels just launched their all-new VAYA series fly reels this week and they are stunning. The CNC-milled fly patterns are specific to each size of reel and they offer a unique combination of minimized weight (on your rod) with incredibly rigidity and power. They are crafted by avid Colorado anglers for ultimate performance and built for diehard fishermen. You can follow that link below to shop the collection.


Marsh & Bayou Fishing Excursions from Hotel Mazarin

New Orleans is one of my favorites cities in the world and the list of reasons why is way too long to get into. One thing I’ve never experienced on any of my NOLA trips is backcountry fishing. That’s why I’m stocked about this Marsh & Bayou Fishing Excursions option from Hotel Mazarin. They offer inshore fishing trips for redfish, speckled trout, flounder, and more. As well as night-time bowfishing trips that look badASS. Check ’em out here.


Soft Coolers From Fishpond

There are times in life when a hard-sided cooler is the best option but more often than not a soft cooler is more functional and the better choice for someone living an active lifestyle. For starters, they are generally a lot easier to transport because of the ergonomics and because they always weigh less than hard coolers.

These soft coolers from Fishpond are all on sale today over on Huckberry so I wanted to put them on your radar. First, we see the Fishpond Ice Storm Soft Cooler which is marked down to $79 (usually $100). This cooler comes in two colors, Earth and Yucca.

The second cooler we see is the Fishpond Blizzard Soft Cooler which is on sale for only $56 (usually $70). It has a waterproof and leak-proof interior, heavy-duty weather-resistant nylon exterior, and capacity enough to carry 16 cans.

Custom Budweiser Shirts for 50th Moon Landing Anniversary

things we want Budweiser moon landing shirts

This special edition Budweiser Discovery Reserve + Highly Clutch collab was born from Budweiser’s limited edition  Discovery Reserve,  a Budweiser Reserve collection beer that debuted earlier this summer.

An American red lager, it features a light hoppy aroma with a toasted barley malt taste, a hint of toffee and a sharp finish. Budweiser Discovery Reserve was brewed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first successful mission to the moon on July 20th, 1969, complete with a taste inspired by an archival recipe from that time in history.

You can now buy the collection via Highly Clutch, commemorating today’s 50th anniversary of the lunar landing. Just hit the ‘shop now’ link below and scoop yours before they’re gone!

Custom-Made Graphic PNW Tees

Bridge and Burn t-shirts

I wanted to throw some sick American-made t-shirts on your radar today from Bridge & Burn. These comfy tees are made from a blend of 25% cotton, 50% polyester, and 25% rayon. Each shirt is custom-designed by Bridge & Burn and fit’s like a dream.

The entire line of t-shirts from Bridge & Burn pays homage to the Pacific Northwest which is home to some of the most gorgeous forests found anywhere on the planet. If you’ve never been fortunate enough to visit the PNW then I’d say 100% that’s where your next trip should be. Every bend in the road or trail gives you another breathtaking view. These custom tees were inspired by a camping trip from the Bridge & Burn crew
