Dunlop 44P100 Nylon Guitar Picks

Traditional guitar picks can be a bit brittle and are prone to snapping if not treated somewhat delicately. That’s not the case with the Dunlop 44P100 nylon guitar picks you see here, which are practically indestructible and even have a bit of flex to them. If you play a bit aggressively, these are the picks for you.

The North Face Arroyo Flannel Shirt

When it comes to button-down shirts, none scream “the great outdoors” quite like a classic red flannel — much like the one you see before you here. This one also has the added benefit of being made by The North Face, one of the premier outdoor brands currently on the market. It’s simple, sure, but that’s exactly why it works so well.

Levi’s Sherpa Trucker Jacket

Classic denim trucker jackets are undoubtedly an American style staple, but this sherpa version from Levi’s is all the better for cold-weather adventures, thanks to its ultra-warm collar and thick lining. What’s better: if you don’t like the washed look of the one you see here, it comes in a ton of different colors and patterns, so you can easily find the one that suits your style the best.

ROADIE 3 Smart Automatic Guitar Tuner

Tuning your guitar is a necessity for making it sound good. It can also be quite annoying. Unless you have the ROADIE 3, that is, which can automatically tune your strings to the exact right note every single time without any fuss. Better still, it can also tune up other instruments — like ukuleles, basses, banjos, mandolins, etc. It can even be used to do alternative tunings or even swap out strings.

Purchase: $129

Danner 15481 Bull Run Chelsea Work Boot

Danner doesn’t have a bad bit of footwear in its entire catalog, but some are better suited to certain activities. For instance, the 15481 Bull Run Chelsea Work Boot is really great for leisure-focused activities that are a touch off-the-beaten-path, as they’re easy to slip on and off but still offer great traction. They’re also made from outstanding materials right here in the USA.

Nemo Equipment Stargaze Recliner Camp Chair

If you’re going to go to the trouble of building a fire and setting up a campsite, even a temporary one, you should probably also equip yourself for fireside relaxation. And you can do no wrong in that regard if you bring along the Nemo Equipment Stargaze Recliner Camp Chair. As its name suggests, this cozy seat leans all the way back, making it perfect for beholding the cosmos above in total comfort. You might never want to get back up again.

RTIC Hard Cooler

Do you know what goes really well with a fireside hangout? A few cold beers. And that’s far simpler to manage when you have this RTIC hard-sided cooler, which can keep everything inside it cold for literal days at a time. It’ll even keep the ice frozen longer than most others out there. Available in 20-, 40-, and 64-quart formats, you can pick the one that fits your needs perfectly and, if you don’t mind having to get up between drinks, it doubles as alternative seating.

Purchase: $220

Solo Stove Bonfire Fire Pit

Even in the summertime, campsites of any kind — be they up in the mountains or down on the beach — can get a bit chilly and dark. In those instances, you’ll be happy to have the Solo Stove Bonfire Fire Pit you see here. This portable pit measures up at just under 20″ in diameter and features a clever hidden format that reduces the smoke expelled from your fire to a minimum. All told, this is an efficient, portable campfire solution you’ll want to take with you on every outdoor trip.

Fender CD-60SCE Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar

Yes, the all-mahogany Fender Dreadnought you see before you is a gorgeous six-stringed instrument that sounds great on its own. But if you want to play with a band or just amplify your own instrument, it also comes pre-equipped with a stellar Fishman pickup and preamp. Furthermore, it comes at an approachable price point that won’t make you feel like you have to keep it locked away in a cabinet but high enough that you know you’re getting a solid instrument.

Purchase: $350

SOUNDBOKS Gen 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Whether you’re tired of strumming or you just want to pipe in some accompanying music, you can’t go wrong with the SOUNDBOCKS Gen 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker, which is a veritable powerhouse of a speaker. Not only does it offer an ear-shattering 126 dB of sound, but it can play for up to 40 hours (on average) and has a swappable battery. It’s also weatherproof and works either wirelessly or with an auxiliary input.
