Outdoors extras: Must-have sunscreen and an easy-camp quiche
GEAR OF THE WEEK
Gear name: Stay Put
Gear type: Sunscreen
Product description: I’ve turned my wife into a paddler. She doesn’t fish, but she loves taking her kayak to cruise rivers and lakes. Unfortunately for her, the same sun that makes me tan burns her relentlessly. So sunscreen — a kind that won’t wash off if she sweats or gets wet — is a must. Enter Sawyer’s Stay Put. It bonds to skin, making it waterproof and at least sweat resistant. It doesn’t feel greasy going on but stays in place for an extended period of time. And it doesn’t contain harmful PABA chemicals.

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
Fresh drinking water is essential. This water filtration system ensures you will never run out as long as there is a nearby natural water source. It can filter out bacteria, protozoa and microplastics.
Faster and more efficient than pumping or waiting for chemical treatments, the Sawyer Squeeze System offers on-the-go hydration at a good flow. This product is long-lasting, affordable, reliable, cleanable, and very user-friendly.
But Sawyer was way ahead of me — 15 years ahead, to be precise. In 2008, the brand started its Clean Water for All initiative, which provides Sawyer filters to developing countries around the world. And the company spends 90% of its profits funding it.
