Swooper ·
$125 for a luggage tag? That's about 125 times too expensive unless it's freaking diamond studded or something.
Swooper ·
In fact, almost every item there is way overpriced. Together this set of "essentials" comes to over $5000. I thought this site promoted quality items over useless brand names? I mean, I'm not a guy who skimps on stuff that matters, but all the money you'd waste by buying all this stuff could be used on a 6 week vacation to somewhere far away.
Justin Fulford ·
I'm with you Swooper. Almost this entire list is absurd.
Ryan Harris ·
$830 for a travel wallet? What the?
David Gross ·
Besides the noise cancelling headphones, the prices of these items keep them off my "essentials" list.
Bard ·
Looks like a bunch of essentially overpriced "essentials".
Chris ·
Bet the type of guy who has these essentials is a blast to have a beer with. Assuming this is some deal between EDC and Details magazine, but this list is pretty embarrassing.
Bill Givler ·
The $1,000 blazer caused me to raise an eyebrow, but the $1,000 blanket made me laugh out loud.
Sean ·
Cascade wallet is the prefect wallet for everyday and travel needs. I just received mine. Yaayyy!! www.maniwonders.com

FFS - a blanket!!!!

I am a frequent flyer and have equivalents to most of these but they cost an awful lot less. The only one I actually own are the Bose headphones.

"Staff Writer" is clearly too embarrassed to show their real name.
