8 Outdoor Essentials to Fuel Your Summer Adventures

Real hikers and campers have been doing it all year round, but we’re not too big to admit that we’re not about that life. We like to throw on a good fit and hit the outdoors only when we know we won’t have to pull any serious survival feats. And, with summer approaching, we know that our time to hit the outdoors is drawing close.

We’re also not too big to admit that one of the major pulls to spending time in the wild is buying the right gear for it. The New Balance Outdoor Collection is looking really strong this year, from trail runners to sandals to bucket hats.

In this spirit, we hit the net to round up the best of New Balance’s outdoor gear to fuel your hikes and camps this season.
