Summer has just officially launched with Memorial Day weekend, and with June being Great Outdoors Month, it’s time to get outside and get those adventures started. This week’s Merchandise Monday reviews some essential gear, gadgets and equipment to bring along this season so you have the BEST. SUMMER. EVER.
JBL® Clip 2 Portable Bluetooth® Speaker
This clip-on portable speaker is just begging to be taken on your outdoor adventures! Stream your fave tunes via Bluetooth® for up to 8 hours with a single charge, and since the speaker is completely waterproof, you can take it to the pool, on the canoe, to the beach — wherever your treks may lead. The built-in carabiner makes it a cinch to slap it easily onto a backpack while on the trails, a boat rail while on the open waters, a hook inside your car, whatever’s handy!
Malibu Two XL™ Kayak – Sunrise
Hop on in and row your cares away! The Malibu Two XL™ gives enough room for up to two plus a small child or pet, and it boasts seat backs, paddle keepers, carrying handles, foot wells and deck bungees — so your journey will be as comfortable as it is exhilarating.
Oakley® Prizm™ Turbine™ Polarized Sunglasses
Protect those your eyes in classic outdoor style while you’re outside soaking up those warm rays. These Oakley®’s feature vision-clarifying Prizm™ technology, along with Plutonite® lenses, which filter out 100 percent of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm. If you’re outside for extended hours at a time, your head will thank you for the Three-Point Fit, which eliminates pressure points. Frames are made from the lightweight, durable O-Matter™.
Picnic Time® Botanica Sports Chair
What a great chair to take outdoors, whatever the event! Whether a concert in the pavilion, a picnic at the park, a camp outing in the woods … this chair can handle it all. And it really does have some perks you won’t find in most portable outdoor chairs. The backrest and seat are made of a breathable polyester mesh, and the armrests are lightly padded for comfort. There’s an insulated beverage pouch, zippered pocket for your valuables, cup holder, storage pouches, and even a fold-out side table.
Fossil® Q Reveler Dark Brown Leather Activity Tracker
Leave it to Fossil® to make an activity tracker that looks like a cool, understated strap of leather. Perfect for both men and women, the Q Reveler is a token of modern style but also modern functionality. It tracks your basic stats like steps and calories, and also hands you weekly “curiosity challenges” just to keep things lively. Bluetooth® capable and compatible with Android™ OS 4.4 and above or iOS 8.2/iPhone® 5 and above. Let this tracker be your fashionable reminder to get outside and get moving.
Coleman® Signal Mountain™ 6-Person Instant Tent
Coleman®, camping, need we say more? This instant tent sleeps up to 6 people, but it’s also great for fewer people that just want a little more space to sleep and spread out. From tent to integrated rainfly, the whole thing is up in about 60 seconds, so it’s perfect for campers who want a sturdy, reliable tent without any fuss. Additional comfort features include the WeatherTec™ system with welded floors and inverted seams, as well as a door awning and ground vent.
