We cover lots of gear every week. Every Friday, we’ll feature the coolest stuff in this new weekly column. Think of it as your mini buying guide for the season. 


Stanley Adventure Cocktail Kit ($24)

A bottle of booze is lighter than a 12 pack of beer, which is why you should bring the Adventure Cocktail Kit on your next trip. Two cups and a citrus reamer nest inside the compact stainless steel package. Add a lime and few bitters to your pack and you’re good to go.

Igloo Trailmate Cooler ($250)

There’s a reason we recently compared the Trailmate to a Hummer. The Ultratherm insulation will keep your beer cold for days and a foot of clearance means it’s up to navigating the roughest fire roads.

Sometimes adventure takes us away from the woods and into the city, but that doesn’t mean you should be any less prepared. The water-resistant Traveler Bag has a compartment for storing a hanging suit jacket, a zippered sleeve for a 17-inch laptop, and a removable shoe bag.

Kershaw Scallion ($41)

I’ve had a lot of knives over the years, but the Scallion is the one I reach for the most often. The clip keeps it secure, while the 2.5-inch blade gets most everyday tasks done. The steel stays sharp and the assisted opening is fast (and fun).

Survival Laces ($12)
