Dan and I aren’t gearheads. We don’t have the latest and greatest outdoor gear. We use what we have on hand, but when we need to we spend money on a bit of gear that we know we really need like warm sleeping bags or a good stove we will.
With that said there are a few items that we really love. Below are two items that I (Renee) found myself using over and over again in 2017 and I thought I would share them with you.
We are not paid to promote this gear, it’s just gear I really like. If you like, you should be able to buy these items through our affiliate links below.
I absolutely love my buff I wear it all the time when I'm playing outside. I wear it in the summer and in the winter. I use it to protect my neck from the sun, but then can pull it up over my ears and head to keep warm. It is so versatile. Once I even used it with some gauze as a pressure bandage on a small but bloody head cut!
2) Columbia Women's Tamiami Long sleeve Shirt
This shirt is great. It's light weight, form fitting and it has pockets that are form fitting and not bulky. I love it for spring, summer and fall hiking. It keeps the sun off my arms and is super comfortable. I also love it for horseback riding in the heat, because I can wear it and keep my camera/phone handy in my pocket and I can keep snacks for longer rides in the pockets as well. I wore this shirt so much in 2017.
