GOING WILD: Four Essentials to Conquer the Outdoors

When you’re walking a couple miles, it’s important to have a good pair of shoes.

When you’re hiking 1,000 miles, well, that’s not going to cut it.

But this stuff will.

Because this stuff is exactly what helped Reese Witherspoon trek 1,000 miles across the Pacific Crest Trail, all while escaping some serious demons. Of course, she did that in her new movie Wild, and not in real life. But still, there’s a lesson to be learned here. We’re not quite sure what it is, but we’re betting it has something to do with boots

So before you take to the trails, see below for these outdoor necessities.

Danner Boots in WildThe Boots: These Danner Mountain Light Cascade Boots mean business. With a full grain, one-piece leather upper, Cambrelle lining and a Vibram outsole, it also means your feet will remain all dry and protected as you scramble across rocky cliffs.
Backpack in WildThe Backpack: Most backpacks are super helpful for carrying stuff like books and a change of clothes. But the Gregory Evolution “Monster” Backpack is super helpful for carrying those things, plus a whole lot more stuff like a tent, sleeping bag and cooking supplies. Perfect for camping or, like, a really rugged date.
Casio Watch in WildThe Watch: This digital Casio chronograph watch is simple, functional and affordable. The durable band and bezel can take a beating, which is important when you’re basically living outdoors. And the whole thing’s waterproof up to 165 feet, so you can splash about in the deepest of deep ends.
Nalgene Bottle in WildThe Water Bottle: Whether you’re hiking across the country or across the living room… to the fridge… you’ve got to stay hydrated. This Nalgene bottle is made of polyethylene, so it’s tough. And it’s BPA-free, so it’s safe. And it holds a hefty 1.5 liters, which is equivalent to two bottles of wine. Do with that info what you will.
