    17 Outdoorsy Things From Sail You'll Want To Pack For Your Next Weekend Away

    Yes please to all of these.

    1. A portable BioLite camp stove if you and your pals are going into the wild and want to make your outdoor cooking adventures a lil' easier. It has a handy USB port, too, so you can use it to charge your gadgets while you're whipping up dinner.

    2. A tube of Sun Bum cooling lotion because someone is bound to leave your event with a sunburn (it happens to the best of us). It's packed with skin-soothing ingredients, like aloe and vitamin E, and won't leave you feeling greasy.

    3. A Fjällräven backpack that you can use to tote around everything you'll need, from your SPF to your fave tallboys. Thanks to the reflective logo, your pals will be able to spot you in the dead of night (not great for hide and seek, but great for safety).

    4. An inflatable chair so you can kick back in comfort — whenever, wherever. It can be folded up extra small when you're done chilling out, meaning you won't have to make a ton of room in your travel bag to bring it along with you.

    5. And an inflatable couch that'll come in handy when you're not flying solo (or when you want to stretch out). Like the chair, it's pretty tiny when decompressed, so you could carry a whole living room in your backpack without foregoing your essentials.

    6. A multipurpose towel that you can use as a picnic blanket, yoga, mat, or, y'know, an actual towel. It's sand- and pet hair-resistant, so you won't have to worry about stuffing a bunch of debris into your bag when you're done for the day – just shake it out and carry on.

    7. A stackable YETI mug that'll make even your wildest outdoor adventures aesthetically pleasing. Thanks to the double-walled design, your drink won't change temperature seconds into sipping.

    8. A portable power bank because you know your phone is gonna conk out in the middle of your beach photoshoot without it. It has two USB-A ports and one USB-C port, so you can juice up multiple devices at once.

    9. A light-up dog collar so your dog will never go MIA when they join your night hike or bonfire festivities. You can trim it to fit your pup's neck perfectly, meaning you won't have to worry about it flying off if they decide to go rogue and chase a squirrel.

    10. And an LED frisbee so you can play disc golf at night with your pals and your pup. It's super durable and has a canine-resistant battery, so you won't have to worry about them getting at something they shouldn't.

    11. A slackline kit if you're tired of playing the same old games and want to try something new. You can attach it to trees (or other sturdy anchor points) and then take turns testing your balance and trying out tricks.

    12. A YETI cooler that'll keep your ~beveraginos~ and ~snackaroonies~ at the perfect temp (aka not roasting). The ultra-durable hardshell will save the contents from getting crushed before the party starts.

    13. A double hammock that'll make you forget about chairs altogether and will become the most coveted seat at all your events. It comes with a stand, so you won't have to tie it around trees and pray that it won't come tumbling down.

    14. A candle lantern if you plan on turning up after the sun goes down. It's equipped with three candles (each with a nine-hour burn time) and will provide enough heat to keep you warm on a chilly summer evening.

    15. A pack of string lights that'll illuminate your campsite so you won't have to go to bed when the sun does. Each cord has four lights, but you can string 'em together to make one extra-large one that stretches around your entire venue.

    16. A Finnish bowling game if friendly competition is your jam. Instead of rolling a ball down a lane, you'll be tossing a peg to take out wooden pins. Although it's a little different than the kind of bowling you're used to, you'll probs catch on quick.

    17. And finally, a Hydro Flask water bottle because you're gonna be absolutely parched after your epic summer get-together. It'll keep your drink cold all day (like, up to a full 24 hours), so you won't be stuck sipping lukewarm H2O.
