On a sunny day, grab a solar backpack and head to the great outdoors. These backpacks feature a panel that will charge your phone and all your electronics, wherever you are. Throw in a mini flashlight and a portable speaker, and you're prepared for whatever the open road holds. These fast drying, anti-microbial towels from Eco Dept. are perfect for a day outside, just don't forget the sunscreen!

Camping lanterns, chairs and a stove are always great to have handy if you're heading off the beaten path. This camping cook-wear kit comes with practically everything but the kitchen sink. Compact tents and pop-up shades or umbrellas are great for every destination, especially if you're with the kiddos. These tipis are an unbelievably cute and make for a fun way to camp, or even entertain, in the back yard. Now all you need are some friends, good food, and away you go! 

Don't forget your sunglasses or your sense of adventure. The rest is in the bag! Just spice up your off-road experience with some ginger beer cocktails (or mocktail if you're driving) or an inflatable pool and we're pretty sure you've got it all! With these essentials always in your car, you are prepared for any weekend or road trip at the drop of the hat. Check out our Road Trip collection for everything we mentioned here.
