Golite ReGreen Wind Jacket

Recyclers often reject green bottles, so Golite decided to make a fabric to incorporate them, using 20 bottles per jacket. is is very light and a great jacket to have on hand when the wind picks up during a blueberry pick-a-thon or hike. Also, we love the print because it’s earthy and adds a little pop to gray days.


Klean Kanteen Reusable Straws 

These are made from stainless steel with a removable silicone tip for easy cleaning. It’s such a simple and practical way to make a shift in the right direction and stop using plastic straws, plus they make great stocking stuffers.



The usefulness of this awesome little carabineer clip will surprise you in so many ways. It flips and twists and gives you new ways to hang all your gear, bags, and fish. It definitely lives up to its name, in our book.


Sunski Sunglasses

These unisex shades are made of recycled plastic and are super lightweight. They’re polarized, durable, and have a price point that doesn’t make you cringe or cry if they fall off during your adventures.


ESPRO Ultralight Coffee Press

It doesn’t matter what time of year in Alaska it is—it’s always coffee season! Skip the instant coffee packs with this easy solution: a portable press. We don’t know how we’ve gone so long without it.


Rumpl Ground Cover

This new ground cover is ideal because it has a waterproof bottom and a water repellant blanket on top. is was another gem we didn’t know we needed—it’s perfect for beach adventures, taking a break from hikes, picnics, or throwing in the back of your truck for northern lights gazing.
