Spring Rain Coats

03/18/2016

Rising temperatures mean spending as much time as possible outside, but as always, no spring season is complete without its fair share of rainy days! We aren't going to let a little rain stop us from having fun outside, so having the right raincoat is key. We carry a wide variety of rain jackets, and it can be daunting to decide which one is right for you. With a wide range of prices, technology, and features, we've broken it down by what you'll be doing the most in the rain, and which raincoats will compliment your wet weather activities.

 

Just-In-Case Layer

justincase

A super light jacket that you can carry with you anywhere is key; if the skies stay clear, it's not weighing you down, but it's right there when the rain starts falling. At only 6.6 ounces, the Houdini from Patagonia ($99) is coated to be highly water-resistant and folds up into it's own pocket with a gear loop, so you can hang it in an easy-to-reach place.

 

Everyday Protection 

everydayWhen you have to walk the dog in a downpour or run errands on a super wet day, it's important to have a highly waterproof layer that is up for any conditions you might encounter. The Precip from Marmot ($99) is an excellent do-all jacket, with a storm flap over the zipper and armpit zips to give you extra ventilation. A lighter, more durable option is the Fuse Form Dot Matrix ($179.95) from the North Face, which uses a new way of fusing different fabrics without seams to make them even more water-tight.

 

Keeping it Classy

dressy Maintaining a professional look with a raincoat on can be tough, so we recommend opting for a jacket that has a longer length, to appear more clean-cut and offer additional protection. The Codetta Coat from Arc'teryx ($299) has an above-average center back length of 32 inches and comes in neutral colors.

 

 Venturing Out

venture out When you are heading out on a long-term camping trip or backpacking adventure, you'll need a coat that is not only highly waterproof but offers above-average ease of motion. The Beta LT from Arc'teryx ($499) is a Goretex Pro shell so breathable that you don't even need pit zips, and articulated elbows keep the fabric from bunching up.

 

Kids' Raincoats

kids Every kid needs a good, protective rain coat so they can continue enjoying their time outside all throughout the rainy season. The Resolve Reflective from North Face ($58.95), the Precip from Marmot ($65) and the Torrent Shell from Patagonia ($99) all come in boys' and girls' colors, with sizes from XS to XL, and include reflective features for added safety.

Sport Sunglasses

05/21/2015

Summer is finally here, bringing with it lots of bright sunny days and a new range of outdoor activities. While protecting your skin from the sun is a no-brainer, protecting your eyes should be too. Sunglasses are a valuable piece of safety gear during any outdoor activity. They protect your eyes from dirt, dust, bugs, and most importantly, the harmful rays of the sun, which can cause cataracts and other problems with your eyes. The heat of the sun can also dry your eyes out, causing eye fatigue. Not only will sunglasses help you see better to perform your best, but they can help you stay alert and active longer!

We can help you ensure that your eyes remain protected in style, with sunglasses from Smith, Suncloud, Maui Jim, Oakley, and Costa. While the first three are old favorites, Costa is a new brand for us, and we're incredibly excited about their polarized lenses and impressive styles. Every pair of Costas that we sell have 580G or 580P lenses, which means that whether they are glass or polycarbonate, they block 100% of UV rays and are 100% polarized for maximum clarity. They obstruct yellow light to enhance color and block blue light to reduce haze and blur, giving you the best possible view from within your frame!

Here are some of our favorite models of sunglasses, with the main features that make them best suited for each outdoor activity you love!

 

 

Shades Great for Paddleboarding

 costabrine

Costa Brine 580P in tortoise with green mirror lenses
When spending a day standing on your board and paddling, you want a pair of glasses that won't weigh you down. Costa's, Brine 580P are made from Polycarbonate, a material that is virtually unbreakable, lighter weight than glass and won't fog. All Costa lenses are polarized, providing 100% UV protection and reducing eye strain. The frame has a slight curve to it, blocking the side of your eye from the reflecting sun in any direction your paddling.

 

Kayak With No Distractions

 costarooster

Costa Rooster 580G in blackout with blue mirror
While kayaking your sight line is expanded over miles of open water and visible sky. The Costa Rooster 580G creates a clear plane of vision, with glass lenses, which offer a higher level of clarity and are resistance to scratches. These frames are side-cupped, hugging your face at the temples to provide additional protection from the glare of the sun. Mirrored lenses help with glare by reflecting harmful light away from your eyes, making them an excellent choice for activities on the open water.

 

Protect Your Eyes While Running

smithparallel

Smith Parallels in matte black with green Sol-X lenses
These wrapped frames offer extra protection to the eyes, helping you whether you're on the trail or a bright sunny road. The nosepiece is constructed of Hydrophilic Megol, a material that gently grips the skin and actually grips harder when introduced to moisture. The lenses have a gray base, which won't distort color, and a multi-layer green mirror, which reflects glare and works to reduce eye fatigue in bright conditions. These lenses protect from harmful UV-A, -B and -C rays, and two more lenses are included, so you are protected in any light condition.

 

Hike Farther and Longer

 mauijim

Maui Jim Haleakala in gray fade with HT lens
Maui Jim's HT, or High Transmission, lenses are yellow and allow the highest transmission of usable light, making them perfect for low-light conditions. Yellow lenses provide an enhanced depth of field and superior contrast, making these sunglasses an excellent choice for exploring shaded forest trails. The Haleakala is made with a wrap frame that will help protect your eyes from unseen obstacles, like small branches hanging over the side of the trail. The adjustable nose pads are made of Rabalon, which helps to prevent slippage.

 

Keep You Eyes Safe While Biking

smithpivlock

Smith Pivlock Arena in white-red fade with red Sol-X lens
Smith created these lenses with athletes in mind--they are made to fit the face snugly to prevent slipping in the most extreme conditions. A two-position adjustable nosepiece made of Hydrophilic Megol keeps them in place with no distractions. Biking with wrap around frames is important, so your peripheral vision isn't obstructed. The Smith Pivlock has frames set farther back on your temple for better visibility of other riders and oncoming traffic. The wrap around lenses also help to block wind from your eyes and prevent fogging of the lens. The lenses have a gray base, which keeps colors from being altered, with a red mirrored layer that fights glare. The lenses protect against hazardous UV-A, -B and -C rays. They come with two sets of lenses for varying light conditions.

 

Look Sharp! The Best Lifestyle Shades

 costapalapa

Costa Palapa 580P in gunmetal with silver mirror
Wireframes offer a fun look for everyday wear and look great on men and women alike. An essential feature is the silver mirror lenses that have a copper base, designed for very little color distortion. Built into these glasses is a mirror layer that reflects glare and makes the best use of light that's coming in. Silver mirror lenses are great for outdoor activities with variable light conditions, making them your go-to shades for everyday use.

 oakley

Oakley Frogskins in polished clear with violet iridium lens
These sunglasses have a fun classic look, great for men and women! The lenses are made of Plutonite, a material that offers excellent clarity and impact resistance along with protection against UVA, B, and C rays. The lenses are lightweight and great for all day wear.

 

Reading on the Beach

 suncloud

Suncloud Aviator 2.00 in gold with brown lenses
Suncloud has a great new line of readers that are perfect for relaxing on the beach with a book. The polarized lenses fight glare so you can read in even the brightest sunlight, and the built in Bifocal lenses magnify at the bottom without obstructing your entire view.
