Get ready to hit the water (or the hiking trail, or the singletrack) with these seven items perfect for summer.

Mustang Survival Callan Waterproof Top

The packable, lightweight, and breathable material means you can stay dry in rainy boating weather without also sweating your face off. An inner pocket keeps small items safe; the wrist seals keep water from trickling uncomfortably down your inner arm—grossest feeling ever.

Black Diamond Cosmo 300 Headlamp

This headlamp’s 300 lumens will light the way on a pre-sunrise or post-sundown hike or mountain bike ride; the waterproofing means it’s submersible in one metre of lake water for up to 30 minutes.

Kokatat MisFit Tour

This PFD gets CL paddling writer Conor Mihell’s stamp of approval. “This is my favourite PFD. It’s marketed as a women’s model, but it seems to fit everyone well,” he says.

World Famous Cast Iron Camping Double Sandwich Toaster

“Sandwich toaster” is actually a misnomer since, because of its 20-by-10 cm cooking surface, this gadget can cook sausage, steak, or burgers
over the campfire. Pfft, what’s a barbecue?

Hunter Bloom Algae Foam Sandals

Huh? Footwear made from algae? Yup. Hunter has introduced a new material “harvested from algae” that’s flexible and waterproof. We can’t make this stuff up.

Yeti Roadie 24 Hard Cooler

Yeti’s smallest hard cooler, at less than 13 lbs when empty, is light enough to haul around but large enough to fit 18 cans of beer. Oh, and tall enough to carry most standard bottles of wine upright. You had us at beer, Yeti. And at wine.

LandShark Pet Vest

Keep poochie safer—but still comfy—around water.Thanks to a wide range of sizes and multiple adjustment points, this vest fits almost any dog.
