This week has showcased how nasty weather or the constant threat of nasty weather can have a disastrous effect on people who live outdoors and the forecast doesn’t look much better. While water temps slowly rise out of the winter freeze, we need all the sun that we can get. Camping becomes a a game of ‘chicken’ with thunderstorms. A run on a favorite trail becomes a stain removal video on your DIY Youtube channel. For many, cabin fever will set in and we will go outdoors anyway. There are, however, some essential tools to make this weather cooperate with our new dependency on wearable gadgets.
If you’re like me, I don’t suit up, go out, or pack up without my GPS, phone, wallet, or camera. I’m also not a rich man and can’t afford to constantly replace these things but I refuse to let the weather ruin my weekends. Luckily, we try to keep to shop stocked with tools for your adventure. We have basic dry bags, DryCase back packs (my personal favorite), a huge assortment of discounted spring wetsuits, and plenty of warm threads.
