Sun sleeves for vacations by Eclipse? The front compartment is a great place to store gear that you’ll need quick access to. Here is what I keep in mine. Maps: You should carry a map for all trips! Here is a wide selection of my favorite National Geographic Maps. Bug Spray: I keep this in a small plastic bottle. It took me forever to find good bottles which don’t leak. Here they are! First Aid & Emergency Kit: Bandaids, medical tape, waterproof matches, pain killers, antibiotic ( Neosporin ) , water treatment tablets by Katadyn, mole skin for blisters, + some additional odds and end. It is up to you to pack your first aid kit with what you need. This is what I need and doesn’t mean it’s the setup for everyone! Tooth Brush: Toob Refillable Travel Toothbrush Tooth Brush. You’ll thank me for this one. It’s great for backpacking, travel & road tripping. Soap: Camp Suds Biodegradable Soap. I no longer use soap while backpacking due to environmental and weight savings reasons. This is the stuff I used to take with me and it works great:) Camping Spoon: Titanium Long Handle Spoon Hiking shoes : Low-cut models with flexible midsoles are excellent for day hiking. Some ultralight backpackers may even choose trail-running shoes for long-distance journeys. Materials impact a boot’s weight, breathability, durability and water resistance. Waterproof membranes: Boots and shoes billed as “waterproof” feature uppers constructed with waterproof/breathable membranes (such as Gore-Tex? or eVent?) to keep feet dry in wet conditions. Downside: The reduced breathability created by a membrane (compared to the ventilating mesh used on some nonwaterproof shoes) may encourage feet to sweat on summer days.
In terms of the t-shirts and long-sleeve hiking shirts you should go for a lightweight breathable fabric like merino wool or polyester. As you will be sweating a lot each day, you want a shirt that dries quickly and performs well in moist / wet environments. You do not want to trek in cotton as it is hydrophilic and inhibits moisture transfer. Nylon is okay but does not breathe as well as merino or polyester.
Yes, we know—it’s 30-something degrees outside right now, it’s impossible to step out of your apartment without multiple layers of Heattech on (at least in NYC), and we’re barely a third of the way through winter, so who has time to think about spring style? With fashion month kicking off in a little over two weeks and the spring collections set to start trickling into stores come February, there’s actually no time like the present to get informed on what the must-have S/S 2020 trends are going to be. Considering the fact that there are hundreds of runway shows each and every season, we certainly don’t expect you to go digging through them all to unearth the trends that will rise to the top. That’s what we’re here for.
My tip is to limit your palette to colours that work across a wide range of countries – this may seem like a grand statement but black, for example, doesn’t work in India because of the heat and the preference for bright colours. I like navy and cream – cream is a perfect day or evening colour and navy works in every country I have ever visited. I wear them top-to-toe or in combination. I like to roll up my clothes – it’s an efficient use of space and I feel like you get less obvious crease marks. I also use clear plastic garment bags to cover my clothes and group them either by style or particular fabrication. I always pack my suitcase, then pull one-third out – it’s all about editing down. You never wear everything and you’ll always shop while away! To take full advantage of space, I recommend placing small items like socks and electrics into your shoes and stuffing underwear into your hats – this also helps them keep shape during travels.

Let’s talk some spring 2020 trends in the fashion industry. Well-Vested: While the term borrowed from the boys is so passe in 2019, there is something decidedly last midcentury Savile Row about the vest. Whether included as part of a three-piece suit at Burberry and Etro, or mismatched with a jacket at Louis Vuitton, there’s something quite dapper and appealing—not to mention endlessly flattering—about the almighty waistcoat. Etro gave the classic white suit an update with the addition of a matching vest styled underneath.
Launching new items happens organically for us, when we come up with great designs. Consumers request items. Those requests are important to us. We spend weeks and months creating just the right piece. The space-age fabric technology isn’t just for temperature. The 37.5 particles also trap odor molecules, releasing them when washed. Polyester never smelled so good after a workout. The increased surface area of the particles also increases the ultraviolet protection properties of the fabric.
Picking the right travel backpack is an important part in planning your trip. Too big and you’ll have too much extra weight to carry around. Or you might not get your bag on an airplane! Too small and you’ll never fit all your stuff in the thing! Pick the wrong material and your stuff will be soaked in the rain.
Our clothes are made in small batches locally, you might call it slow fashion. Instead of flooding the market place with a vast excess of cheaply made clothing that goes out of fashion in a season, Eclipse focusses on well-made, durable clothing of classic designs that are made to last. By keeping manufacture local in Colorado, we reduce the carbon foot print of manufacture, support local jobs contribute to the community in which we live. See even more details at eclipseglove.com.
