A little travel and adventure gear style to sport during Independence Month.
1. Costa Del Mar Wingman Sunglasses in Palladium ($279, Eastern Mountain Sports)
The classic aviator shape of these frames will have you swapping the summits for the seas. Set your sights on the bluest water you can find to match the Wingman’s polarized, UV protecting, blue mirror glasses – you might find yourself paddleboarding Hana Bay. Scratch resistant, and available in prescription as well, these will soon become your favorite summer shades. Plus, they are made in the most independent place on Earth, the USA.
2. Original Sailcloth Duffel ($238, Ella Vickers)
Set sail with this travel bag made from recycled sailcloth and show off your nautical spirit. Each one has a unique design from its previous life on the seas. After cruising around the world, these sails have built up a durability that is tough to match. Toss all your necessities inside, throw it on the airplane, and you and your bag are ready for new adventures.
3. Wunder Under Pant Reversible in Polar Haze/ Black ($92, lululemon)
When adventure calls, you can’t be bothered to lug your entire closet along. Bring only what you need, like these ice blue leggings. They jump into action with moisture-wicking, breathable fabric that is flattering, too. And their reversible style lets you get double the wearability – a perfect addition to your perfectly sized luggage. Conquer crow pose during yoga class or see Hawaii on a coastal walk: whatever the adventure, you’ll be ready to go.

No matter where you find yourself traveling, playing some tunes at the end of the day is easy with these portable speakers so you can hula the night away.
