Using an ultra-effective strain of Indonesian citronella (rather than DEET), Kinfield’s fast-drying repellent really works. Available in 3oz spray bottles, the formula is comprised of lemongrass, clove bud, lauric acid and more, but is free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and synthetic fragrances. This spray proves ideal for trips into the outdoors and repels for hours.

Officially available 11 July, Raleigh Bicycles and Jeff Staple collaborate on an urban commuter bike with ingenious details—from the bare frame (that can accommodate rack and fender mounts) to the textured grip on the most common carrying points. With brightly colored rim walls and a “pigeon poop” motif on the seat—a nod to both the urban jungle and Staple’s synonymous logo—it’s good-looking, yet still a workhorse.
Produced with 100% quick-drying nylon, these “geometric watermelon”-patterned shorts are sophisticatedly playful.

Color-blocked and high-cut, Ack’s made-in-Italy bikini is a retro-inspired delight. Embellished with silver-tone rings, the top is underwired for extra support.

Made in Portugal from Italian, vegetable-tanned leather, Aether’s moto boots—which are specifically designed for motorcycle riding—include a bounty of built-in safety features. From the internal D3O ankle-protection pads to the double-layered leather toe to prevent wear, fine details abound. Of course, there is a heavy cut sole for foundational protection, as well. Each pair also comes with extra black laces—so you’re not beholden to the blue ones.
Utilizing double-walled stainless steel to keep drinks cold (or warm), Denver & Liely’s “Traveller” marries the spirit of a flask to the utility of an insulating thermos.

Crafted from wood and wicker, Wild In Bloom’s folding, reclining beach chair is as functional as it is stylish. Adjustable (from upright to laying flat), the floor-style seat means that whether you’re at a picnic or on the beach, sitting on the chair won’t mean you’re towering above everybody else. It collapses flat and is easily carried using the attached canvas strap—and at 11 pounds, it’s not too heavy.
Made from Baltic birch and cork, Fredericks and Mae’s beach tennis set includes everything you need to get your game going: two rackets, a cork ball and a cotton drawstring bag to carry it all.

Made from medium-weight, water-resistant poly-cotton gabardine (70% polyester and 30% cotton), Arpenteur’s Sportive jacket is a sensible option for wet weather.

Truly an all-encompassing garment, Vollebak’s 50,000BC jacket features four layers of protection and added wool insulation—making for a technical piece that will shield wearers from the elements.

With a jacquard woven woodgrain graphic, the aptly named Woodgrain towel from Bless features a predominantly black pattern on one side and an inverted, mostly white version on the other. The swirling graphic piece has white trims and is made from a mid-weight terrycloth cotton.
Cut in a classic trench-style silhouette, the Glossed-TPU raincoat from Rains is transparent—save for the frosted collar and pockets. While allowing your outfit underneath to remain visible, the jacket protects it from the elements—thanks to its water-resistant 100% thermoplastic polyurethane make-up. Lightweight and made slightly oversized, its boxy shape means it’s ideal for all genders.
Stutterheim’s classic Stockholm raincoat is crafted from a matte, rubberized cotton so it may appear less technical, but it still protects from blustery weather—thanks to its 100% PVC coating and heat-welded seams. Available in countless colorways, our pick is the patchwork-style iteration—with green- and sand-colored patches on a black base. Made in Poland, this raincoat is available from XXXS to XXL.
