Merino wool is one of the best fabrics for both backcountry travel and everyday use. It's warm, even when wet, naturally anti-microbial, and wicks moisture from your body. Those are some of the factors that make Cocoon's merino TravelSheet such a great piece to have in your gear box.

A refillable water bottle can save you a lot of money over the course of a year as compared to the cost of buying multiple throw-away plastic bottles, and there are plenty of choices in the marketplace.

Bugs can quickly ruin a national park vacation, especially the ones that bite and suck your blood. That's when you need a shelter from the storm, as it were.
