Top 5 Summer Road Trip Essentials
The summer is well underway and the road trips have begun. When you think about what to bring, Abt has a few must-haves on the list. Check out these 5 road trip essentials for this summer!
Whether you’re crossing coast to coast or going on a short getaway, you need something to hold all of your belongings. Abt now carries Patagonia Duffel bags! Our personal favorite is the Patagonia Black Hole Duffel Bag 60 L. This bag is large enough to hold everything, yet small enough to easily fit inside your trunk. This Patagonia duffel bag has many useful features like smaller mesh pockets inside to hold easy-to-misplace items, and being entirely weatherproof. If you spill water, run in the rain, or drop it in a puddle, your belongings are safe and secure within.
Sunglasses are also a key to enjoying a road trip during the daylight. No one likes having the sun glaring in their eyes, nor is it safe! The Abt sunglass boutique has an amazing selection of sunglass options including Oakley, Maui Jim, and even Gucci sunglasses to choose from. For this particular trip, we are selecting Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses for your road trip. When you’re looking for a stylish and easy option, Ray-Bans are the way to go.
Now how are you planning on listening to your tunes? Depending on your road trip, you might be camping or finding accommodations along the way, but who knows what kind of weather you’ll experience. We recommend a waterproof bluetooth speaker just in case. Not just useful for the road trip, but perfect for your end destination. With waterproof speakers, you can bring it to the pool, beach, lake, or just wherever you go without worrying about it getting wet. We looked through all of our speakers and found that the Ultimate Ears Boom 2 Bluetooth Speaker has outperformed all of its competitors. Ultimate Ears revamped their original line of Boom speakers and made this new one entirely waterproof while maintaining crystal clear sound quality. The UE Boom 2 comes in various colors that are stylish and fun for any owner.
No road trip is complete without a way to document all the fun. A GoPro Hero 4 is the go-to action camera for any adventure. This small, portable camera is perfect for on-the-go activity and takes incredible ultra wide-angle shots. GoPro includes a waterproof carrying case that has been tested to be highly durable and still allows the camera to take the best action shots. Did we mention it can also take video? Now you can relive your road trip anytime you want with a GoPro.
Don’t forget to stay hydrated! We recommend using the Takeya 40 oz water bottle. Takeya made their water bottles double insulated to stay cold no matter the weather condition. This Takeya water bottle is the perfect size so you don’t need to fill it up too often. If 40 oz is too cumbersome, check out the other sizes and colors to find the right one for you.
Road trips are meant to be a fun and exciting adventure. Make sure you plan all of the essentials you’ll need to make memories of a lifetime. Shop in our store or online to find the best products for your summer road trip!
