Nothing beats the feeling freedom you get from adventuring in the the great outdoors. There’s no denying the therapeutic benefit of crisp mountain air, lush vegetation and the spiritual feel of being at one with nature. Going outdoors does have its drawbacks, like the bone chillingly cold winters, sweaty summers and the possibility of being molested by a wild animal in the middle of the night. But strangely enough, that’s part the thrill of the experience.
If your someone who likes an outdoor adventure, our friends over at Huckberry have got some great gear for your next trip. Here’s some of this month’s best finds for the outdoor adventurer. For more great gear check out our selection at the Man of Many x Huckbery store.
Out in the woods it’s important to always stay sharp. The best way to stay sharp is to look sharp. Imagine hiking up a mountain trail, when suddenly your posse is savagely attacked by a pack of Yetis. Since you’re wearing the dopest boots in your crew, you’ve managed to run away and escape. Somehow, the media gets a hold of your story and before you know it, you’re mobbed by press as you’re leaving the national park. Even though all your friends are dead, if you’re decked out in the Chippewa Boot, North Coast Surf Shirt and Bondy Jacket, at least you’ll be looking sharp for the cameras.
Bear Grylls was sucker. Why anyone would drink the juices of a dead camel’s bowels when they could filter water ever so simply through a easy to use device like the Lifestraw is beyond me. And Mick Dundee was pretty badass, but you must admit, that knife was excessive. We prefer the the Chapter Knife, which fits in your pocket. Opt for simple tools that do their jobs and do them well.
Gone are the days when we carried our things in a rag on a stick. There are plenty of bag options available that are both stylish and practical, but always remember comfort comes firs. For storing you valuables, We recommend the Bellroy Elements range, which is great for keeping your belongings dry and protected.

A good tent, or as I like to call them nature’s hotel rooms (even though technically they don’t really come from nature), are a wise investment. Add a warm sleeping bag and a comfy hammock, it’s almost like a night in the Shangri-La.
As much as being at one with nature is important, it’s often the simple modern pleasures can make the experience of being in the wild just that little bit better. With toys like the Powerall, Heilio Pressure Shower and Stanley French Press Vacuum Coffee, all of a sudden a pine tree by the creek feels like your home living room.
