Super Shade

Stay hip while you hit the highway and shade your eyes from the glaring afternoon sun with Janessa Leone’s Wegner hat, a perfect complement to your trip. Made from virgin wool felt with a black lambskin leather strap circling the base, this neutral-hued cap is a timeless accessory that will take you from the Gulf Coast to the West Coast with ease.

Luscious Locks

With travel often comes haphazard showers, low water pressure and funky sleeping arrangements. Keep your hair looking and feeling lively and clean with R+Co.’s Death Valley dry shampoo. Spray a little on your roots and instantly reclaim volume and body on the fly. And your passenger will thank you—the spray smells of spirited bergamot, wild fig, lotus flower and cedarwood.

Tent Up

Take a night or two to sleep under the stars and pitch up the MSR Hubba Hubba to take your trip outdoors. Ultra-light and compact, this two-person tent features a speed setup with optimized, symmetrical geometry and non-tapered floor to maximize space along with integrated, adjustable stake-out loops. Whether you’re making a pit stop in the Grand Canyon or Joshua Tree, the Hubba Hubba helps you make the most of your adventure.

Snack Attack

 When you’re on the road, it’s easy to fall into the trap of eating only from rest-stop vending machines, fast-food chains and gas station hot dog rollers. Kick the grease to the curb and stock up on P and J’s nutrient-rich paleo bars. Try the Explore More bar, made from simple ingredients like eggs, pumpkin seeds, apricots, coconut, apples, sunflower seeds, cranberries, honey, sesame seeds, semi-sweet chocolate chips, vanilla and cinnamon. Store in your Yeti cooler for sustained freshness.

Sun Fun

Take in the fresh air flowing from the open road with an arm out the window as you ride down the highway. But make sure not to get an uneven tan as you cruise—slather the luxurious Crema Solare Viso from Italian skincare mavens L’Erbolario across your face and shoulders to protect against the sun’s rays. Infused with aloe vera and macadamia oil, this SPF 25 sunscreen contains a rich range of plant-derived filters, keeping you moisturized while fighting the formation of free radicals.

Chill Out

For long days on the road, it’s important to stay hydrated and well-fed. Keep all your cold bevs and perishables in the Yeti Hopper 20, the “ice-for-days” portable cooler. Eighteen cans fit into this durable, but soft container, with a HydroLok zipper that keeps cold in and heat out. Drop in everything from La Croix cans and cold brew coffees to apples and finger sandwiches.
