After the longest year of our lives — a heck of a lot of it spent inside — summer has maybe never been so welcome as it is in 2021. To celebrate the return to the outdoors and, slowly but surely, to life as we once knew it, we’ve gathered a group of must-have products for long, lazy days at the campground, the festival, the beach, and anywhere else your wanderlust takes you. We’ve done the grueling work of testing each and every one — all you have to do is pack them up, slather on some SPF, and head out for the next adventure.
