CamelBak eddy+ 32oz. Filtered by LifeStraw

Whether you are going out for a trek into the backcountry or looking for an everyday water bottle, there is nothing better than having a trustworthy source for safe water wherever you travel. Which is why we carry the CamelBak eddy+ 32oz. Filtered by LifeStraw. Water passes through two separate stages of filtration – the Hollow Fiber Filter removes bacteria, parasites, and microplastics and the Ion Exchange Filter reduces lead, bad taste, chlorine and other unwanted chemicals. The universal Eddy + straw cap and bite-valve interface is leak-proof when closed and spill-proof when open and delivers a high flow for steady hydration when you need it most. The main vessel is made with Tritan Renew, a highly durable and lightweight plastic made with 50% recycled material that is odor and stain resistant and free of BPA, BPS, and BPF. The path to reliably clean drinking water begins with a CamelBak eddy + filtered by LifeStraw. MSRP $50 camelbak.com

Jack Wolfskin DNA Rhapsody 3-IN-1 Jacket

Once you pull the Jack Wolfskin DNA Rhapsody 3-IN-1 Jacket out of your closet in the Fall, you won’t be putting it away again until the Spring, and maybe not even then. Offering ultra-versatile performance for Winter, Spring, and Fall, this three-in-one jacket functions as an insulated Winter coat, a lighter jacket for chilly weather, and a waterproof rain shell on cool and rainy days. Its fleece liner zips out into its own light jacket, leaving behind a waterproof shell that eliminates the need to drop money on a new rain jacket. When you wear the shell and liner together you’ve got bombproof Winter protection from biting winds, cold temps, and even the heaviest of snows, and when you wear them apart you’re ready for the constantly changing weather that transitioning seasons can bring. The shell features a fixed tunnel hood that can be adjusted with a bungee pull to keep you protected from wind and snow, and both the shell and liner have a set of hand pockets ensuring that you’ve always got a place to stow important items and cold hands.
