Long days of music, adventure and fun can take a lot of energy. Here’s the gear to keep you shaking into the wee hours.
The Water Bottle | Purist Founder
Hydration is key to making the most of long summer days, and this 32-ounce wide-mouth has become our festival bottle of choice. The glass finish on the interior—don’t worry, it doesn’t break—means the liquid in the bottle won’t pick up that nasty metallic taste, and sports-drink residue washes right out.
The Hat | Chaos Martin
A trusty festival hat keeps you cool in all senses of the word. The shapeable wire brim and adjustable suede chin strap on this baby ensure it stays fit. Plus, it’s made to be crushed and stuffed in a bag. $32; chaoshats.com
The Sound System | JBL Boom Box
If you want to bring the party back to your campsite (or even host a bash in your backyard) this big, loud bluetooth speaker has the bass (and volume) to pump up any gathering. Don’t worry about the weather or finding a place to plug in: It’s waterproof and holds a charge for 24 hours. $360; jbl.com
The Blanket | Klymit Versa
When the sun sets and a cool downslope breeze hits the field, you’ll be glad you packed this 23-ounce, easy-to-stash polyester-and-synthetic insulated blanket that can withstand spills and squalls—and keeps you cozy. $80; klymit.com
