Gearing up for summer fun is no easy task. Not all capable equipment is meant for use during warm weather.  Look long enough, however, and you’re bound to come across some ideal pieces for July and on.

Whether you are having a hard time looking for something or simply love finding hidden gems on the world’s largest online store – we have the solution for you here in this month’s Scoured. We combed through the scary big store run by the ever expanding company to pull out what we think are some really solid finds. Looking for a soft bag ice cooler? We came across one of the best. Maybe on the hunt for a solid cross between a pair of sneakers and boots for light summer wear? Look no further. Or possibly you’re hoping to keep your phone and cash safe on bike-rides and trips to the beach? Whatever it is – we’re sure this month’s Scoured will contain something you need, or at the very least something you want. Take a scroll through and enjoy.
