Four must-haves for opening you up to new experiences.
It’s just a fact that having the right gear makes our experiences more enjoyable.
Imagine trying to swim laps in a baggy t-shirt (blech).
Imagine running a Ragnar without coffee (or any of these things).
Imagine eating a mango without a knife.
Doable? Sure. Fun? Maybe not.
In the spirit of fueling your adventures—whether they take place in your packed gym or out in desolation wilderness—we rounded up our must-haves for getting out there in the most enjoyable way possible.
The one thing that does all the things
We know, we know, you’re probably tired of us singing the praises of these perfect headphones. But AfterShokz are perfect, so …🤷♀️
They’re the perfect blend of simplicity and versatility. They give you the freedom to podcast, playlist, or conference call while keeping your hands free to rack your weights, and your ears open to chat with your workout buddy or to listen for bears (BEARS!).
Wear your water bottle.
Wear your water bottle? Wut? We promise, we’re not asking you to make like a 1990s camp counselor and wear a water bottle lanyard.
Nope, you can wear your Takeya water bottle. This is by far my favorite non-tech wearable. How often have you been running out the door and find yourself with too much stuff in your hands? Keys, credit card, phone, water bottle. Just enough stuff to be awkward, but not enough stuff to merit dragging a purse or backpack along.
I love this secret hack for carrying my water bottle (not least because I owned a Takeya bottle for a full YEAR before I realized this party trick, and now I feel a secret thrill every time I hook that bottle onto my waistband).
Plus it will keep your favorite bevvie hot or cold for hours upon hours.

Which brings me to:
Caffeine for the road
I love this so matcha. Matcha latte infusions feel fancy but go anywhere.
Mix ‘em up with milk of your choice, keep them hot or cold in your Takeya, and then savor that fancy treat whenever, wherever. You’ll enjoy ceremonial grade, hipster-cafe quality wherever you please: On a mountaintop, in the middle of the lake, or post bootcamp.

Just say no to bugs
Without harming the environment or your skin. NOW Bug Ban is a natural bug repellant that will keep your skin happy and itch-free and take care of our beautiful planet, too.
No scary chemicals, just a firm barrier against would-be biters.
