With Memorial Day officially in the rearview, we think it’s safe to say the summer is here in a big way. And we’re obviously thankful for that. Not just because of warmer weather, but also due to longer days, planned vacations, and a plethora of outdoor happenings. It’s here that we wanted to focus this month’s scoured guide around a life aquatic. Complete with waterproof tech and gear that’s sure to stand up to days spent at the beach, river or lake house.
From here, we opted for an outdoor-themed cookbook for those evening campfires, a waterproof camera to document any days spent on the lake, a sleek dive watch, and a waterproof duffel to house it all – among others of course. So, with that in mind, take a gander through this month’s guide and pick your fancy. Who knows, maybe the old man the will appreciate an item or two.
