Girlfriend Collective Paloma Sports Bra

Girlfriend Collective Paloma Sports Bra
Girlfriend Collective

I LOVE this brand! Cute, supportive, comfortable and sustainable. The main thing I love about girlfriend collective is that all of their products are made from recycled plastic water bottles or fish nets. That’s something I can get behind. On top of that, this bra is amazing. It is very supportive and seamless. It is great for light to moderate exercise. It also doubles as a cute crop top. I wear it for hiking, running and yoga. Hands down a favorite bra.

YETI Tundra 45 Cooler

YETI Tundra 45 Cooler
Yeti Cooler

This cooler is awesome. I was a little apprehensive at first because it feels like a big investment for a cooler. However, once I took it camping and the ice didn’t melt for DAYS, I was sold. All of the food, drinks inside the cooler will stay cold for days. Not having to worry about replenishing the ice is another nice feature. The cooler itself is very durable, can hold a lot of food/drinks and even makes a great seat.

Chaco Z/volv X2 Sandal - Women's

Chaco Z/volv X2 Sandal - Women's
Chaco Sandals

These are some of the best shoes I’ve ever owned. I love how open and free my feet feel (because they’re a sandal). They are very supportive. What I like best, is that I feel like I can do anything in them. They’re great shoes for hiking, walking, biking, (light) climbing or to wear around town. The strap around the toe is a little weird but now that I’m used to it, I like it. These shoes are very versatile and great for many outdoor activities.

Hyke & Byke Ultralight Down Sleeping Bag: 3-Season 32 Degree Mummy Bag

Hyke & Byke Ultralight Down Sleeping Bag: 3-Season 32 Degree Mummy Bag
Hyke and Byke Sleeping Bag

I’ve had this sleeping bag for 3 years and I’ve used it at least 100 times in all different seasons/conditions. I love it. It is relatively light weight and works well for both backpacking and camping. It is light and a slick material but very puffy and warm. It keeps me warm in very cold weather (even snow) but still feels light and cool on hot days. It is very versatile for many seasons. Hyke and Byke is a cool company and I like supporting them. They provide really good pricing. For the quality, this product is much more cost effective than other brands. I like this bag so much I really wouldn’t consider other brands for a sleeping bag.

Hydro Flask 21oz Standard Mouth Bottle

Hydro Flask 21oz Standard Mouth Bottle
Hydroflask

Ah the hydroflask. Very popular and for good reason. I use this bottle every day. It keeps my coffee hot for hours. I often leave it open and it still remains hot and warm for several hours. If you keep the lid on, it can stay hot all day. It also works just as well at keeping drinks cold. If I put ice in it, the ice takes hours to melt. It is very sturdy and versatile. Definitely worth the investment.

Patagonia Baggies™ Shorts - 5" Women's

Patagonia Baggies™ Shorts - 5" Women's
Do anything shorts!

These shorts are great. I feel like I can do anything in them. They are great for hiking, backpacking and running. They are also a nice material that doesn’t retain water if they get wet. There is a nice pocket in the back that is helpful for small items.

Patagonia Nano-Air Light Hybrid Insulated Hooded Jacket - Men's

Patagonia Nano-Air Light Hybrid Insulated Hooded Jacket - Men's
Nano-Air Light Hoody

Patagonia is an awesome brand. This is hands down my favorite jacket. The puffy front exterior provides warmth while still feeling light. The back and sides are breathable but still warm. I love how both warm and light this jacket it is. It’s great for hiking/backpacking. It also works well as a mid-layer for snow activities.

Katadyn Hiker Pro Filter

Katadyn Hiker Pro Filter
Water Filter

This water filter is great. It can pump and provide freshwater anywhere. It feels essential on backpacking trips. It’s easy to use. It takes awhile to pump the water but it will provide an unlimited amount that you can use for drinking or cooking. It is very important to clean after use otherwise it can mold or get clogged.

ENO Double Nest Hammock

ENO Double Nest Hammock
Hammock happy

I love the eno double hammock. It can hang literally anywhere. The double size is great because it can sit two people. Or if you want to sleep/hammock camp in it, the bigger size allows you to fold the hammock over yourself to keep bugs out. Very cozy.

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

Jet boil

I love my jet boil. It heats water SO fast. It’s great for making hot drinks or simple individual meals, fast. The only struggle I have with it, is that sometimes it boils so fast that it overflows. But it’s great, it’s small and compact and very easy to use.
