The global pandemic this year has kept many of us inside way more than we’re used to. As trails and parks slowly open back up, we’re just as excited as you are to get back outside and embrace the healing quality of time spent in nature. However, we’re also still facing a public health crisis, so it’s important to recreate responsibly.

If you haven’t checked out their resources yet, make sure to follow the Recreate Responsibly Coalition’s work. The Recreate Responsibly Coalition is a group of 500 nonprofit organizations, outdoor businesses, and land managers who have created tips on how we can protect each other and our environment as we get hiking again. Below are their top seven tips for exploring the outdoors safely during this time.

On the Recreate Responsibly Coalition's website, you can also find sample social media posts to help spread the #RecreateResponsibly message to your networks.

Once you’re ready to safely breathe in some forest or lakeside air, we want to support you with our time-limited Gossamer Gear Summer Hike Bundle!

When you add both a Bumster and our popular Liteflex Hiking (Chrome) Umbrella to your cart during the Fourth of July weekend, you’ll receive 20% off + a surprise free gift!

With long days under the hot sun and unpredictable afternoon rainstorms, our umbrella is a solid everyday carry option for the summer. If you haven’t tried hiking with one yet, this is a great time to give it a go. Become one of the many hiking umbrella converts out there as you joyously whistle your way down the trail ready for all types of weather Mother Nature may send your way.

As for the Bumster, this stylish fanny pack is good for both the trail and around town. Use it to hold your snacks, face mask, hand sanitizer, keys, and more! It pairs nicely with backpacks that don’t have hip belts with pockets. It’s fantastic for neighborhood bike rides. Looking for a fashion statement on your next Zoom call or socially distanced outdoor coffee date? You guessed it – the Bumster is your solution.

As for the free gift, well, the mystery is part of the fun isn’t it?

Grab your Summer Hike Bundle today and get ready to recreate responsibility under the soothing summer sun!
