One of my favorite summer traditions I have with my friends is renting a summer house for a long weekend. Our requirements for our mini vacations are simple: nature- and friend-filled activities only. Luckily, both of those requirements are easily met and have taken my crew from lakeside in Maine to the trails of the Catskills.
Each year, I'm tasked with packing a wardrobe that can be bonfire ready one minute and hiking ready the next. For me, this always means looking for lightweight, breathable options that blend comfort with performance. And I'm always looking for durable items that can be reworn throughout my trip. After a few summers packing for days of hiking, running, boating, and good old-fashioned outdoor grilling, I've mastered planning for the outdoor mini trip.
To help make it a bit easier for my fellow adventure crews everywhere, I've curated my dream outdoor-ready wardrobe (and accessories) to pack for those long weekends away. Trust me when I say these pieces pass the chill test as well as the play test.
