Travel accessories and sun sleeves for vacations

Unisex sun sleeves for holidays by Eclipse? The front compartment is a great place to store gear that you’ll need quick access to. Here is what I keep in mine. Maps: You should carry a map for all trips! Here is a wide selection of my favorite National Geographic Maps. Bug Spray: I keep this in a small plastic bottle. It took me forever to find good bottles which don’t leak. Here they are! First Aid & Emergency Kit: Bandaids, medical tape, waterproof matches, pain killers, antibiotic ( Neosporin ) , water treatment tablets by Katadyn, mole skin for blisters, + some additional odds and end. It is up to you to pack your first aid kit with what you need. This is what I need and doesn’t mean it’s the setup for everyone! Tooth Brush: Toob Refillable Travel Toothbrush Tooth Brush. You’ll thank me for this one. It’s great for backpacking, travel & road tripping. Soap: Camp Suds Biodegradable Soap. I no longer use soap while backpacking due to environmental and weight savings reasons. This is the stuff I used to take with me and it works great:) Camping Spoon: Titanium Long Handle Spoon Hiking shoes : Backpacking boots: These are designed to carry heavier loads on multiday trips deep into the backcountry. Most have a high cut that wraps above the ankles for excellent support. Durable and supportive, with stiffer midsoles than lighter footwear, they are suitable for on- or off-trail travel. Materials impact a boot’s weight, breathability, durability and water resistance. Split-grain leather: Split-grain leather is usually paired with nylon or nylon mesh to create a lightweight boot that offers excellent breathability. Split-grain leather “splits away” the rougher inner part of the cowhide from the smooth exterior. The benefit is lower cost, however, the downside is less resistance to water and abrasion (though many feature waterproof liners).

The second layer, or insulation layer, is a versatile layer and can be used in your layering system over your base layer, or indeed as a standalone layer that you wear over your trekking shirt when temperatures start to drop. They also come in great use at night when it can get very cold out. Our preferred second layers consist of synthetic mid-weight Polartec fleece materials. These are great for warmth and comfort, but also provide brilliant breathability. Polartec fleece jackets come in three main types: 100s, 200s and 300s. The 100s are super light but not warm enough, whereas the 300s provide great warmth but are a little heavy. We recommend going for a 200 Polartec fleece jacket.

Before you cover your eyes and cringe at the idea of literally wearing a bra as a top, hear us out. While, yes, we saw many designers such as Loewe and Olivier Theyskens display bras that looked more like contents of a negligee drawer and less like tops, we saw the opposite as well thanks to satin bra tops at Givenchy and kitschy co-ord sets at Maryam Nassir Zadeh. Style yours under a blazer or as a top all of its own. Either way, this is one trend we’re daring you to dabble in this season. Surprise, surprise—suits are still a thing, but we wouldn’t be talking about them in yet another trend guide if they weren’t still just as important. Luckily, there have been a handful of fresh updates to the world of suiting that will relight your fire for all things tailored and coordinated this season. With the addition of vests and waistcoats resulting in the return of three-piece suits, as well as Bermuda shorts for the more casual gal, the sartorial world has proven that when it comes to a well-rounded wardrobe, a good suit is a must. There were certainly many suiting separates styled on the S/S 20 runways, but today, we want to highlight the more literal takes for spring so that you can suit up and shop accordingly.

My tip is to limit your palette to colours that work across a wide range of countries – this may seem like a grand statement but black, for example, doesn’t work in India because of the heat and the preference for bright colours. I like navy and cream – cream is a perfect day or evening colour and navy works in every country I have ever visited. I wear them top-to-toe or in combination. I like to roll up my clothes – it’s an efficient use of space and I feel like you get less obvious crease marks. I also use clear plastic garment bags to cover my clothes and group them either by style or particular fabrication. I always pack my suitcase, then pull one-third out – it’s all about editing down. You never wear everything and you’ll always shop while away! To take full advantage of space, I recommend placing small items like socks and electrics into your shoes and stuffing underwear into your hats – this also helps them keep shape during travels.

Let’s discuss a few spring 2020 trends in the fashion industry. ’60s Wallpaper: We’ll spare you the groundbreaking florals this season and instead, look to ’60s and ’70s wallpaper for your print fix. Retro prints ruled the runways—bringing both major color and pattern to all the top collections. Serving up mod home decor realness, vintage wallpaper (and couch) prints were channeled in the form of suiting at Prada and Marc Jacobs. Christopher Kane opted for a more psychedelic wallpaper print in the form of spring dresses, while Etro and Alberta Ferretti delivered a more bohemian-print option.

Our entire collection is cut and sewn here in Colorado, reducing our carbon footprint while contributing to our local economy. In every piece we design and construct, we are thoughtful of its life cycle – starting with the material we source and ending with recycling pieces to continue the sun protection properties the fabric has. And when our customers are ready to part with their eclipse, we encourage them to pass it on to a friend, donate it locally, or send it back to us and we will give it a new life (and you’ll receive a discount on your next eclipse purchase!).

Picking the right travel backpack is an important part in planning your trip. Too big and you’ll have too much extra weight to carry around. Or you might not get your bag on an airplane! Too small and you’ll never fit all your stuff in the thing! Pick the wrong material and your stuff will be soaked in the rain.
