In Our Backpack: 7 Must-Have Essentials for an Adventurous Lifestyle

In Our Backpack: 7 Must-Have Essentials for an Adventurous Lifestyle

When we were in the process of designing our soon-to-be-released backpack, we made sure that we were creating a product that could truly meet the adventurer’s needs. In doing so, we put the backpack through rigorous tests, which included filling it up and heading outdoors -- our spirits ignited by wanderlust and desire. BGTL1Today, we wanted to share with you the must-have essentials that went into our backpack on our adventures. These are some of our absolute favorite products that enable the adventurer in all of us to break-free from the every day. Have a look and let us know, over on our Facebook page, what your must-haves are for adventure-filled days.

1. Amy & Brian’s Coconut Juice

We LOVE Amy & Brian’s All Natural Coconut Juice. It’s the perfect thing to throw into our backpack, especially when we’re heading out into the sun. Coconut water has often been called “nature’s Gatorade” because it provides many of the same benefits that sports drinks do. The primary difference is that it does so naturally instead of synthetically.

2. Olukai Sandals

Our Olukai sandals are well-loved and quite worn in. These shoes are lightweight enough to throw in the backpack yet resilient enough to withstand your many-mile adventures. All of Olukai’s shoes are created with premium footbeds, crafted with the finest materials and offer a one-year guarantee. Your feet will not be disappointed with these shoes.

3. Coola Sunscreen

Any adventurer knows that protecting their face is important. Coola sunscreen is a fantastic product and a must-have for your travels. Their sunscreen is 70% certified organic ingredients, antioxidant infused and up to 80 minutes water resistant. One of the fantastic things about this company is that they produce their product in small batches so they can reformulate and perfect their product often. Amazing!

4. Sprint to the Finish Side Zip Pullover

One of the best ways to keep warm, even when it gets cool, is to keep a pullover in your backpack. One of our favourites is from Actio926 -- the Sprint to the Finish Side Zip Pullover. The pullover comes in a bright color, which is perfect for those nighttime adventures and ruched detailing, which has been added in strategic locations to help assist wicking properties for dry comfort.

5. QuestBars in Cookie Dough Flavor

Protein bars are a fantastic snack to have in your backpack as they are loaded with nutrients and are usually quite filling. These bars, from QuestNutrition, also happen to have an extra added side bonus -- they are DELICIOUS! This QuestBar has chunks of real dark chocolate and has the most protein in it than any of their other bars. Yummy!

6. Krave Jerky

Another excellent snack to throw in your backpack is KRAVE Jerky. Naturally loaded with protein, KRAVE’s jerky is a perfect anytime snack for athletes, recreationalists or anyone who is on-the-run. We love snacks that are portable, nutrient-rich and delicious and KRAVE hits the mark on all three of these requirements.

BGTL47. Lifefactory Water Bottle

The Lifefactory water bottle is our favorite go-to water bottle. Created specifically for health-conscious and eco-minded folk, these glass water bottles are an excellent example of usability and design. Grab one of their 22oz bottles, throw it in your backpack and stay hydrated through any of the adventures that life takes you on.
