The summer season is upon us and like an elderly moose, we’re going to have to shed our winter mange before walking into a sunny season our ski bodies aren’t yet prepared to handle. So ditch the Carhartt work pants, grab some river shorts, and get ready for sunny skies and green landscapes with these choice pieces of steezy, summer gear.
Full coverage shades are all the rage these days and Sunski just released our favorite pair of 2018. By combining glacier goggle utility with a stylish, Italian-style frame design, they’ve created a no brainer for the hiker who wants a little bit of swag on the trail.
