They’re lightweight yet waterproof (a must-have feature for PNW and coastal hikes), and come in a range of fun colors, too!

So functional for day hikes and fits everything you need, including keys, wallet, hand sanitizer, phone and a small water bottle.

We’ve all been there, knowing we should be drinking more water, but finding it hard to make it happen.
This glass water bottle has helpful little markers on the side to help with daily hydration goals so you’ll find yourself hydrated with ease by the end of the day.
These comfortable, flattering, high waisted leggings are a daily movement and wardrobe staple.
Comfy and made for cold weather workouts, this versatile long sleeve is just the things for walks, hikes, layering and travel.
