Decapitated Floats’ swan inflatable pool toy can accommodate two and comes with its severed head included. Whether you helm the body and let the lost appendage float nearby, or keep the two intact until they separate (for dramatics), this is a delightfully morbid reimagining of the timeless summer accessory. The release is limited to 500.
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.

Printed all over with series of cartoon-ish faces and scenery, Greek designer Ellie Rassia’s “My Daddy is Cool” bikini is a playful and practical swimsuit—thanks to adjustable shoulder straps and a tie-back. With ruched hips and a high-waist, the bottoms are flattering for all shapes and sizes.
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. The bold combination of berry red and orange is just one colorway (this swimsuit also comes in single hues) and the polyamide, spandex and elastane blend is machine washable.
Made for all genders and with a decidedly retro inspiration, these Holiday Boileau shorts feature a cheerful, seasonal print by Inès de Chefdebien.

Available on Kickstarter now, MiiR’s Pourigami pour-over system is a carry-able coffee maker that doesn’t succumb to the constraints of instant coffee alternatives or clunky camping presses. Three sleek slats of stainless steel (in black, stainless steel or white) interlock and form a nest for coffee filters. The system weighs just four ounces and, when unassembled, packs flat. Testing it out at this year’s Outdoor Retailer, we observed that it outperforms presses and clears a significant amount of space in your backpack.
From the top, these sandals look like classic Tevas. But from the side, a stacked rainbow flatform celebrates the LGBTQ+ community. With $15 from the purchase of each pair going to the Tegan and Sara Foundation, buying these sandals means sending support to an organization that contributes to summer camp scholarships for LGBTQ+ kids. While made for all genders, they’re listed in traditional women’s sizes.
Inspired by ’70s design, this delightfully kitsch Ceccile bikini by Dodo Bar Or evokes the spirit of an endless summer. Covered in bold flowers, the bikini features a high-waisted bottom and off-the-shoulder top. Decidedly retro and playful, the pattern is also available in a midi skirt from the brand.
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. Coupled with a handy carabiner, the vessel can tackle many outdoor adventures. Made in an edition of 1000, each one is numbered and can hold eight fluid ounces of your chosen poison.
Available in three psychedelic tie-dyed colorways (magenta/wine, blue/brown or teal/cream), this Proenza Schouler one-piece is an eye-catching but practical swimsuit. With a straight bandeau-style neckline, it features extra-long shoulder straps—for both aesthetics and functionality. Made from a nylon/spandex blend, this suit should be washed by hand.
The next generation of Ultimate Ears’ Wonderboom is the Wonderboom 2: while still portable, Bluetooth-capable, long-lasting and loud, this new iteration has some unbeatable features. New to this iteration is stereo-pairing with another Wonderboom 2, some 13 hours of playback, and a new fabric exterior. We especially enjoy its “outdoor mode,” which equalizes the speaker’s output and ultimately improves its ability to cut through noise (like chatter, cars or other nearby speakers) and is activated with a button on the speaker’s bottom panel. Available for pre-order now, the Wonderboom 2 is available in four colorways and is water- and dust-proof.
Handmade from organic cotton, Etee’s reusable food wraps are sustainable and compostable alternatives to plastic and paper bags. Available in sets of three, these medium-sized wraps “activate” and become tacky with the warmth of your hands, and can be used for fruits, nuts, and sandwiches—anything. Each one offers some 120+ uses and they can be composted when they’re no longer adhesive.
With a sugarcane-based alcohol foundation and top notes of rosehip seed, jojoba and Italian bergamia oil, Noshinku’s bergamot hand sanitizer refreshes with each spritz. Unlike other hand sanitizers, it’s neither a gloopy gel nor chemically scented; rather it’s a light spray that smells almost like a perfume. Further, a slender, credit card-like design houses the liquid and makes it more portable than most.
Using a sustainable material developed by Carvico and super-bright colors, Paper London’s rainbow swimsuit embodies the essence of summer. With an ultra-low back and high-rise leg, it offers a little less coverage than most one-piece swimsuits—thought the braided adjustable straps mean you can alter the neckline. The innovative fabric is also sunscreen stain-resistant and can be thrown in the washing machine. Price is in Pounds.
