Banana Boat Sport Cool Zone sunscreen
As lame as it sounds, everyone should have at least two bottles of sunscreen with them for a week long excursion to the beach. Before stepping out onto the sand, make sure your skin is protected with a layer of Banana Boat Sport Cool Zone sunscreen. The sunscreen’s formula makes this lotion long lasting, invisible, rub-free, quick drying, and non-greasy. Available on Amazon in either SPF 30 or 50, this is a must have for everyone. The last thing you want is to have a sunburn ruin your spring break.
Coleman Xtreme 5 Cooler – 70 qt
We are at an odd crossroads in the cooler industry right now. Companies either are selling the new age of indestructible coolers capable of keeping drinks and food cold for days, or classic plastic coolers that keep your wallet fat. The highly portable Coleman 70 Xtreme has outstanding insulation, holds 70 qts, and will only have to have its ice replaced a few times during your trip. On top of the 70 Xtreme are four cup holders, so not only are you buying a cooler, you’re buying a table. The money you’ll save by not spending $450 on a cooler named after a mythical Himalayan snow beast will keep your Xtreme full of delicious treats and drinks. Order your spring break companion here for $70.
Easybreath Snorkeling Mask
The great Jacques Cousteau once said, “The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever”. The oceans are nature’s temptresses. The abundance of life surrounded by crystal clear water is an aw inspiring event that has some never wanting to leave. Humans were not born with gills, nor great under water vision, but we were born with minds capable of creating almost anything. Our drive to conquer the deeps has given us snorkeling, scuba diving, and submarines. The three each have their pros and cons, but it wasn’t until just recently that a company took the best of all three and put it into one product. The Easybreath Snorkeling Mask brings the 180° view of a submarine, into the comfort of a closed underwater breathing system, and the ease of use seen with a snorkel. The Easybreath is the first full-face snorkeling mask, which gives the user the natural feel of breathing on land with their nose and mouth. It’s large size gives users an unobstructed 180° field of vision. A mechanism triggered by the submersion of water keeps any and all liquids out of the Easybreath. Lastly, the double air-flow system seen in domestic extraction fans prevents the Easybreath from fogging. Available for preorder on Amazon, but learn more about the Easybreath on Tribord’s website.
