Get Outside Gear Roundup

June 1, 2022

The sun is shining and the temperature is just right. There’s never been a better time to get outside and explore the great outdoors. Here are a few of the things that we’ll be bringing along on our first hike. —Amanda Nunes

You can feel good (and comfortable!) in Keen’s Elle Backstrap Sandal ($110). These light as air sandals have stretchy straps made from 100% recycled PET plastic bottles and a cushy sole. 

Enjoy the sunshine and protect fragile skin with North Face Wander Sun Hoodie ($65). The hard-working hoodie blocks out 98% of UV rays and has a wicking fabric to keep you cool.

Stay hydrated and save space with the adorable Stojo Water Bottle ($35). The 20oz silicone bottle squishes down to a mere 8cm, making it easy for you to refill on the go.

Don’t get caught in a summer rainstorm. North Face’s Packable Jacket ($229) folds into a super small pouch, perfect for stashing into your bag just in case.

Hit the trails in Allbirds Trail Runner SWT ($180). It has a cosy eucalyptus tree fiber and wool blend upper and a tough rubber outsole with grippy treads. Feet will stay dry with an innovative water-repellent finish.

This easy Columbia Knit romper ($80) has you covered from head to toe for your next outdoor adventure and it’s cute to boot. It comes with built in UPF 50 sun protection and a sweat-wicking fabric.

Ready to go when you are, these lightweight Natural Run Shorts ($90) have an even lighter environmental footprint. They clock in at 10.2 kg CO2e before offsets.
