Hats Off To You

It’s summer and everyone has to take shade at some point! It sure is hot but if you make sure you keep your head covered with a light hat, you will keep yourself much cooler. There are many styles of hats available. Each hat has a different style to fit your particular need or taste.

I recommend the Boonie Hat; especially in the warm weather.

It is a wide-brimmed hat that is better known as a Bush Hat. It is used for various reasons; one of the many reasons is for military use. It was first used in the U.S during the Vietnam War. There are quite a few prints and colors to choose from.

 It will definitely keep your head protected from the sun. It allows an extreme amount of shade for you to keep cool. As far as the material, it is a matter of preference. When the Boonie Hat was first introduced it was mainly made from excess material from parachutes. Some prefer rib stop; while others like a nylon blend. It really depends on the reason of use.

Fishermen are often seen wearing them because of the loops around the base of the hat. It is a great place to store your lures. If you are looking for full coverage in the hot sun, this is a perfect pick. There are usually vents that allow air to get to your head. The best part is you can adjust the hat to how tight you would like it on your head. Try it!

Protect Yourself and your Electronics

Do you own a tablet, iPad, iPhone, Nook, or laptop? There are many cool new carry cases and Military Bags that accommodate your electronics including some that you may have never seen before.  They include an iPhone case equipped with a removable pepper spray baton,  an iPhone or iPod arm band that is great to use while working out or jogging,  and all types of iPad or laptop carry bags in just about every camo option.

Another great idea for jogging is the iPhone case that comes equipped with the removable pepper spray baton. Now you can protect yourself while you reduce the number of items you carry with you since the pepper spray detaches easily from the iPhone case.

Do you travel with your iPad or laptop? Available now are tactical field laptop cases in digital camo, multi camo, coyote brown, olive drab and black.  For any tablet you may want to check out the modular Camo tablet shoulder bag. It can be used three ways: as a waist pack, with a carry handle, or a shoulder bag. It is made of heavy duty yet light weight nylon and has numerous modular attachment points.  These are just a few of many great carry cases and bag options that are available to you right now.

When you are camping in wooded areas or in bear country, you have to be extremely careful. There are people that may think it is cute to spot a bear but it is nothing of the sort! Those beautiful animals are very aggressive and a simple camping trip could cost you your life if you are not cautious!

When people go camping, it is extremely important to bring flashlights, batteries and bottled water. Those are three very crucial items that should be the first things you pack. If you are not familiar with camping and sleeping outdoors, you want to pack extremely comfortable sleeping bags and other items to sleep on.

You may want to check the temperature rating of sleeping merchandise that will be appropriate for the climate you will be in. You want to make sure you have padding to put under the air mattress or cot you are sleeping on. That will keep you warm because it will put distance between you and the floor.

Never! I repeat never, keep food in your Tent!! Throw all your food away in the designated trash areas in your campground. If there are no areas, make sure you keep your food in a cooler and keep it far away from your tent, preferably one hundred feet away.

You can purchase bear-resistant canisters and other items that will keep bears away from your tent. Do not forget there are also creepy crawlers that can get into your food, so be vigilant and take all precautions on your outdoor adventure!
