Must Have Gear for Home & Adventure

We have several things that we keep on hand for easy adventures. Bag Chairs, travel hammocks and a portable shade tent are three things that top our list.

Portable Shade Tent

You never know when you are going to be out in the sun and need a shady place to relax. Whether you are at the beach and need a portable shade or in the backyard needing a place to read, the Kelty portable SunShade is the perfect option.

The Kelty SunShade comes in a handy backpack bag so you can carry it with you wherever you are headed.

The classic Kelty Sunshade is back with a great new look. This unique three-legged structure features a moveable sidewall to block the sun from any direction. Three equal length fiberglass poles make set-up straightforward and effortless. Comes with a convenient backpack carry bag for trouble-free transportation. Whether you’re basking on a sandy beach, or catching some shade at the festival, we’ve got you covered (literally).

This shadetent is tall enough for adults to stand up inside and for several chairs to be opened under the tent. There is also a removeable side panel that you can easily hook on to block additional sun as needed.

Bag Chairs

Bag chairs have been around for many years and are a necessary piece of gear that everyone needs to keep on hand. They are perfect for backyard picnics, soccer games with the kids or outdoor adventures at the lake or beach. We love the Kijaro dual lock chairs for their comfort and ease of use.

Portable Hammock

If you love relaxing in nature, you need your own portable travel hammock. The kids got their hammocks as Christmas presents and they are the perfect piece of outdoor gear for our family! They are so convenient to hang; it only takes about 3 minutes to go from carry bag to relaxing with a book out by the creek.

  1. I really love this shade tent! Imagine sitting in comfort at Glock matches. I’m going to show this to Steve. It would make a welcome addition to his little red wagon. I also like it for more shady room on our lawn when visitors come.
    I also see your link above. Will this always be present on your blog? I order from them a lot and want to go through your site.
