This post about summer must haves is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.
Living in the Pacific Northwest, our summers are pretty darn spectacular. It’s all about getting outside. Most people have their list of essential summer must haves before they head out the door on an adventure. Last week, a box arrived with a fun collection of summer necessities and we were excited to try them out.
FIVE Summer Must Haves sent to us from BabbleBoxx
AfterShokz Trekz Air Open-Ear Headphones
Why do these headphones make the list of summer must haves? The AfterShokz Trekz Air Open-Ear Headphones can handle all the elements. This means whether you’re working in the garden, out for a run, or hiking in the rain, they won’t let you down. Super lightweight, with titanium wherever possible, AfterShokz open-ear headphones allow you to hear what’s going on around you. They come in a variety of great colors like Midnight Blue, Forest Green, Slate Gray, and their newest, Canyon Red.
What’s my favorite feature? They’re bud-free. Having the open-ear feature means I can comfortably wear them a lot longer.

Brew Dr. Kombucha
I’m sure you’ve heard people talk about Kombucha, a fermented tea. Brew Dr.Kombucha is live and active, 100% RAW and unpasteurized. They use a form of non-heat distillation to gently extract the alcohol but keep the flavor.
We had the chance to check out two great flavors, Clear Mind – their most popular flavor – brilliant botanical flavor with notes of rosemary and sage. And this year’s summer seasonal, Strawberry Basil – a high-quality green tea with strawberries and two types of basil.
Our favorite Brew Dr. Komucha? I love anything strawberry, so Strawberry Basil wins hands down! So delicious and refreshing!

Skratch Labs Drink Mixes, Energy Chews & Energy Bar
Skratch Labs has a variety of products from drink mixes, to energy chews and bars that are great summer must haves.
Sport Hydration Drink Mix:This drink mix helps you replace the sodium you lose when you work up a sweat. This sports drink formulated with 800 mg of electrolytes per liter(twice the level of Gatorade) which is the average amount of salt active people lose when they sweat. Made with real fruit for flavor and nothing artificial. Hydrates faster than water alone. Non GMO, Gluten free, dairy free, vegan.
Sport Recovery Drink Mix:If you’ve pushed your body with a hard workout, you need to replenish it with the right amount of amino acids, calories and fat. This recovery mix is perfect right after a workout or race to help you recover faster. Helps you recover faster than using carbs or protein alone.
Sport Energy Chews: If you need an energy boost during exercise these chews are made with real fruit and covered in powdered sugar instead of wax or oil. They provide slow drip energy that won’t make you crash.
Anytime Energy Bar: Ditch the boring granola bar. Plant-based protein and energy is powerful enough for the pros but tasty enough to eat all day long. Made with quinoa, brown rice crisps and nut butter. Gluten free, dairy free, vegan and non GMO.
Anytime Hydration Drink Mix: I am not a sports drink person, so this is the drink for me. Even when you’re not sweating you’re losing moisture and this hydration mix puts back the essential ingredients. Made with natural cane sugar, real fruit and nothing artificial, the electrolyte level is similar to that of national sports drinks like Gatorade. Non GMO, Vegan, Dairy Free
Our favorite Skratch Labs product?I really liked the Anytime Energy Bar because it’s the easiest for me to grab and go as a busy mom.

I’m of the opinion that you should ALWAYS have duct tape on hand, and if you carry a ten essentials kit, duct tape should be your eleventh essential. Duct tape is so versatile and T-Rex® Tape is a Weather-Resistant Tape built for intense holding power so you can tackle long-lasting repairs.
T-Rex Tape’s double-thick adhesive holds up in about any climate and environmental condition. It’s also strong enough to adhere to rough or dirty surfaces without sacrificing sticking power – which is important when you’re trying to make an emergency repair out ion the woods.
