Outside gear director Will Taylor and his wife spend as much time as possible outdoors with their family. But with a two-year-old and a seven-month-old, they require a lot of specialized—and tiny–items. In this video, he highlights their three most-used pieces and explains why they’re essential for having fun and staying protected amid the elements when recreating with young children. 

Will recommends: 

Kids Ride Shotgun Pro child seat ($250)

Burton Infants Buddy Bunting suit ($110)

Sunday Afternoons Kid’s Ultra Adventure hat ($32)
