Essential Gear: Pool Days

Published By

With summer fast approaching, we see long afternoons by the pool, in the sun, with a cold beer in hand. Let us help you enjoy it in proper style with a list of appropriate gear to assist you on your journey to a relaxing summer poolside.
Quicksilver camo boardshortsQUICKSILVER CAMO BOARDSHORTS
This camouflage swimwear may not keep you well hidden from the neighbors while napping by the pool, but their 100% polyester water repellant baja twill construction will render you dry moments after leaving the water. Complete with a classic tie closure with Velcro at the fly and double patch pockets. ($44)
O'Neill Friction 2 SandalsO’NEILL FRICTION 2 SANDALS
Keeping your feet cool on the hot asphalt is a cinch with surf lifestyle brand O’Neill’s Friction 2 Sandals. The logo-clad textured insole is protected by a rubber textured outsole that is waterproof in case your buddies push you feet first into the deep end of the pool. ($15)
polarized swim gogglesPOLARIZED SWIM GOGGLES
The Polarized Swim Goggles feature anti-fog polarized glare protection lenses with 100% UVA protection for complete eye protection and optimum clarity while you swim. The curved lense shape on the one-piece latex frame reduces distortion for increased peripheral viewing and a more comfortable fit. ($40)
Used by some of the most elite surfers many years over, Bullfrog Sunblock provides 8 hours of SPF50 protection in and out of the water, without the greasy residue found in your girlfriend’s tanning lotion. Sprays on clear and evenly with a nice manly scent to go with it. ($10)
Your regular beach or pool towel dries you off at best, offering nothing else to the relationship. The Ultimate Beach Towel does a little more. It comes with a built-in removable pillow for increased poolside comfort, and also features two hidden water-resistant pockets for safely storing your iPad, iPhone, and other valuable stuff. ($45)
No pool day is complete without the proper listening experience to go with it. The Eco Terra Waterproof Speaker Case protects your smartphone or other MP3 device from the occasional splash, providing a waterproof, airtight seal while you blast your favorite playlists through the 3-inch speakers. ($90)
