As a reader of Gear Patrol, you already know that Huckberry consistently offers some of the best gear you can get your hands on. If the crew over at Huckberry has learned one thing from traveling to far-flung locales for their catalogs — case in point, this summer’s edition all shot in Puerto Rico — it’s that having the right kit can make or break any trip. Whether it’s the perfect shades or the shoes that will stop your dogs from barking, below are the nine things that the Huckberry crew don’t leave home without — plus a bag that can carry them all in comfort.
Mystery Ranch Mission Rover 43L
This Huckberry exclusive from Mystery Ranch is smartly organized with lots of space. Ready for one-bag travel, it offers two separate compartments for shoes and dirty laundry — so you can keep the dirt and funk at bay — plus zippered compartments and dividers to help you stay organized.
Free Fly Bamboo-Lined Hybrid Shorts
You probably don’t think of bamboo as being suited for a good pair of shorts, but these are perfect. They are ideal for summer days on the trail, naturally breathable, odor resistant and moisture wicking. Altogether, these are much more than just a pair of shorts.
Wellen Hemp Zip Hoodie
This lightweight terry zip-up hoodie is much more than comfy — though it certainly is. The blend of organic cotton and hemp make it ready for years of snuggling up to its soft fibers, while the sustainable materials should make you feel pretty good inside too.
Flint and Tinder Breaker Trunks
These lightweight and breathable American-made trunks are perfect for cold pond dips on hot summer days. Additional spandex keeps them working for you and velcro pockets ensure you’ll keep a handle on all your essentials.
California Cowboy The High Water
There is no better way to get that dose of good vibes than with this updated Aloha shirt that comes equipped with a dry pocket to keep your tech from being splashed, a built-in bottle opener (no, really) and a reinforced bottle pocket to keep that beer on ya.
Proof 72 Hour Merino Tee
We love this tee already, you know that. It is the best performance merino tee money can buy. It also happens to be the softest — a lucky coincidence. The merino helps to naturally regulate your temperature while the nylon reinforcing makes it easy to care for.
Mohinders City’s Slipper Woven
Meticulously hand-made in India, these woven slippers are kitted out with soft and durable crepe soles making them ideal for outdoor jaunts. The slip-on’s leather is all locally sourced and naturally tanned buffalo leather that will mold to your feet for that perfect fit.
Sunski Topekas – Huckberry Exclusive
Polorized shades are a must for any getaway. This pair is made for adventures with superlight frames — that are 100% recycled — scratchproof lenses and traction pads on the bridge and temples for a locked in fit. They also boast 100% full-spectrum UV protection.
Nomadix Chris Burkard Adventure Towel
Never go anywhere without a towel. This towel, designed for the most outdoorsy pursuits is highly absorbent and made with anti-slip technology taking you from camping to a long tan on the beach. It is also printed with one of Chris Burkhard’s iconic photos.
Pantropic Panama Player Hat
The Panama straw has been a sign of summer and relaxation for decades. This hand-woven Tuscan hat is made from durable Panama straw that will keep your dome shaded without any extra weight — the straw is mighty light and airy.
