Are you heading out on a killer summer road trip?
Where are you going?
What gear are you thinking about taking?
Post up your list and where you are going in the comments below and we will pick a winner each week in the month of June.
A good pack will last for year and keep all of your gear in one spot.
We like the Osprey Packs Daylite Plus Backpack, Black for light day hiking and it comes in at a price of around $50 so it is easy on the wallet.
You can load up all of the basics and head out on your next mini-adventure right away.
Add a water bottle and some snacks and hit the road.
Ready for a cool dip after a long hike up the mountain?
You need a pair of shorts that you can hike, bike and swim in.
Something that is light weight but also will dry fast and take a ton of abuse.
We like the 511 Tactical shorts for all around warm weather stuff.
Use can use these in the gym for a workout or on your next surfing safari.
We use the Camelbak 70 oz Antidote Replacement Reservoir and personally have several of them for hiking and off road bike riding.
They are easy to clean and you can load them up with ice to keep your water extra cold on those steamy hot days.
Easy to clean and can take a ton of abuse.
I just ordered a Insulated Hydration Bladder Sleeve for the bag and hose to keep them both extra cool.
The sun is going to be hot and brutal this summer so be ready to protect your eyes with a good pair of shades.
We like Electric Eyewear as they are easy on the wallet but deliver everything you need to keep those harmful rays off your face.
We also like Gatorz eyewear which are a big supporter of the Navy SEAL Foundation.
#5 Cool T-SHIRT
You gotta have a good tshirt to protect your body from the elements and mix in well with the backcountry local folks.
Check out our SGPT “Stronger People are harder to kill” shirt which can give you a 10 percent boost on your pull ups on your next workout.
If you get hot you can douse it in a stream and wear it on your head to stay cool.
Upgrade your life and go for something that you will hand down to your kids and keep your drinks ice cold.
I personally own one and take it with me daily to the field and definitely on any rolling adventure.
This is my go to cup for the road.
We like the Petzl – TIKKA Headlamp.
I personally have one in these lights in dash of my truck.
I have used it to navigate on my bike in the night or ready a book before falling asleep.
Must have for traveling.
#8 SLEEPING BAG
If you are camping outdoors or just setting up a bivvy on the beach you will need a sleeping bag to help shake off the cooler night temps.
We like the Marmot sleeping bags from Backcountry.com
I personally own one of the Marmot bags and will be taking it with me this weekend on an off road bike tour in the mountains of north Georgia.
