Each month we pick our adventure essentials making waves in our world. Whether it's the perfect headphones for a workout, a must have biking accessory or a new line of tees we'll share our faves.

We love this! Smartwool is stepping up its sustainability efforts. Responsibly sourced Merino wool is already the foundation for Smartwool products, but Smartwool often incorporates synthetic and man-made fibres to enhance the product performance and durability.

17% of apparel styles in the new line will feature recycled material or hemp. Recycled polyester and nylon will be introduced to the Merino Sport performance collection and hemp blends will be added to the 'Everyday Exploration' lifestyle collection. Can't wait to try! Our picks from the spring collection include Merino Sport Ultra Light Hoodie and Merino Sport Lined Shorts! The hoodie is 100% recycled nylon outer shell fabric with DWR coating to provide wind and weather protection. Body-mapped panels of Merino Sport 150 mesh provide breathability and temperature control. It packs completely into the right-hand pocket for easy storage. Reflective print on back panel and sleeve cuffs for visibility in low light conditions. The shorts are lightweight, quick-dry, recycled stretch-woven polyester outer fabric.

If, like us, you want to be super sun safe than this collection from Helly Hansen is for you. Helly Hansen Solen collection helps you stay protected against the sun, they take its most effective, high-performance active fabric, LIFA Active, and combines it with S.Café to debut a full collection of activewear promising all-day comfort and 50+ UPF sun protection.  

Plus, S.Café is the infusion of recycled coffee grounds during the fibre creation process to boost UPF protection to 50+ UPF that will never wash out, help control odour and maintain its UPF value when dry or wet. This removes the need for any chemical treatments that can negatively affect the environment during its construction or care.

Our picks from the collection; the Active Solen Hoodie and Life Life Active Solen Tee

The tentree Constellation Collection of hoodies, BF crews and tees features glow-in-the-dark galaxy graphics created from eco conscious ink and each super soft piece is made from sustainable pesticide-free organic cotton.  

If you’re looking for any positives to emerge from lockdown, turn your gaze skywards as all around the world, country, city and town dwellers alike are enjoying clearer skies, magically abundant with shimmering stars, space stations and starlink satellites…

Aaaand for every item bought, tentree plant ten trees in reforestation projects around the world with a goal to plant 3 billion trees by 2030. 43 million have been planted to date. Yay.
