Pack it up, pack it in, we’re going on a road trip. Where do you ask? Well, we don’t even really know. But isn’t that the entire point? To point the compass in a direction, hit the road, windows down, playlist on. The essence of a road trip is something everyone should experience in their life, it truly is part of the American way. To maximize the experience you better have all the right gear to equip the journey. This month’s Top Ten from Huckberry.com we had the open road in mind, so turn the key and take a ride with us with these can’t miss pieces to pack.
Flint and Tinder Seersucker Shirt
The magical 3rd option… When the suit threads are too warm and your choice white tee feels too messy for the occasion, the Flint and Tinder Seersucker Shirt is the “easy button”. Breathable, comfortable, looks sharp, and can be dressed up or down. Button it up when visiting the inlaws, and let it fly open while cracking a crisp beer and jamming the CYTIES album of the week.
Rhythm Textured Linen Jam Short
If you’re going for a pair of shorts on the road, they better be breezy and comfortable. Made from a cotton-linen blend, they will instantly become your everyday pair, especially if you’re in the heat of the Southwest. Not to mention the color will be matching the canyons outside the window. Get some sun on those thighs!
IZIPIZI Sun Nautic
Where ever you’re traveling this summer, you won’t get very far without a trusted pair of shades. Truly the cherry on top of any outfit, the IZIPZI sunglasses are polarized to perfection, made for the sun, and ready for the road. #seeyououtthere
Hults Bruk The Agdor Splitting Axe
Let’s start here, “made from Swedish steel and American hickory”. If that doesn’t make you already at least just a little bit interested, you might be on the wrong site. When the road trip takes a halt for grub and shut-eye, The Agdor Splitter will be your tool to chop wood for the campsite. Or maybe you just like to toss it around, tear up some sticks, and test your aim. No judgment here. We never met an ax we didn’t like.
Full Windsor Magware
Crafted with absolute precision is the aluminum utensil set from Full Windsor. This sturdy and stand the test of time flatware is perfect for the nights or mornings on a road trip where the campfire is serving the grub. The set magnetically nests together, which makes keeping a hand on all the pieces easy—truly built to be portable.
The easy excuse of not working out ‘till your back to the home base has been dismantled with this powerful little full-body workout that’s made for the road ahead. The Exerbell packs down to the size of a laptop and can muscle you through a workout ranging from 4-30lbs. Fill it with sand or water and stay in tip-top shape while cruising the backroads on an epic road trip.
Rugged and made to roam cooler for all your cold beverage needs. A cooler is for a road trip is much like an engine, it just won’t be happening without the right one. This specific bad boy from Roam Adventure is constructed with haul handles on the side, long-lasting steel pin hinges, and a waterproof seal that will never leak. Making sure you have some roadside stops to stock up on the ice every other day is all you will need to worry about.
Moore & Giles Bottle Opener
The right bottle opener can’t be overlooked. Sure, it makes a great gift (that keeps on given’) but you have to ask yourself, how’s your personal collection? Are you impressing friends with every pop of a bottle top? The Moore & Giles Bottle Opener is hand-forged iron constructed and hand-stitched with Italian vegetable-tanned leather. What does all that mean? It means with a simple press of a button you’ve just upgraded your entire kitchen.
Messermeister Adventure Chef Knife
Handsome maple wood handle, created by professional chef Adam Glick, and a German stainless carbon allow steel blade… We can get lost in the details of this knife. Heat treated and cooled to handle superior hardness, liner lock design, lifetime guarantee… Sorry, you caught us daydreaming.
Whitewater Nylon Trucker Snapback
We love caps that feel vintage, but hold sturdy when it comes to the elements. Seager Co has revived old west inspired hats that are made for adventure. This one in seafoam green stands out, making it easy to find in a trunk full of bags and essentials. Its breathable mesh will have you feeling cool on those hot summer nights.
