It’s common knowledge among outdoor enthusiasts the best gear comes from companies either founded or based in the locations where most of their customers would set off to explore. This is the case with Fjällräven, a company from the small Swedish town of Örnsköldsvik (“a place where mountains and forest meet the sea”, according to the website) that produces functional outdoor gear with sustainability and preservation in mind.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
The clothing market is highly saturated both online and in stores. There are hundreds of retailers that sell clothing at varying prices and it’s hard for consumers to decide which places are reliable and within their budget. There is a trend of stores that advertise one thing but then send something that only looks similar to the product purchased. This is making buyers scared because they don’t want to waste money on something that isn’t what they want. Online stores in particular make buyers nervous because they’re never sure how it’s going to turn out until the clothes actually arrive.
In the middle of a five-kilometer hike, you start to notice something. Your toes are getting cold, and, as anyone who has ever dealt with cold feet will tell you, once the cold comes in, it is tough to get it out again. Now, in the middle of this snowy hike, a biting pain clamps on the tips of your toes. The rest of the hike will likely be a miserable experience, but there is a way around it.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
As spring comes around in full force, people opt for a lighter coat that can protect them from the wind and rain of the season. In the beginning, there are still cold days to get through, but, as the weather shifts, it becomes more unpredictable with bouts of rain and sunshine. This unpredictable weather can make it hard to know how to dress properly, but it’s always a safe bet to own a couple light and versatile jackets to get through the season. Lightweight coats don’t need to be expensive to be effective. Many buyers will opt to buy less expensive coats because they don’t get used often. However, any coat purchased for spring weather will also be useful in the fall.
