sunglasses

Roka Phantom Sunglasses

They may have a classic aviator style, but this performance titanium frame is all business. They’re ultralight — but seriously resilient — and feature proprietary nose and temple pads that are comfortable and make the rose-gold lenses virtually budgeproof, no matter how hard you play.

$250, roka.com

Scrunchie hat

Scrunchie Hat

Packable, crushable — and cute! — this hat is made of UPF 50+ fabric that blocks 97.5 percent of UV rays. The moldable brim protects your face and neck from damage, and an internal drawstring guarantees a perfect fit.

$46, wallaroohats.com

Striped bikini

Sky Blue Venice Stripe Try Bikini

This timeless two-piece from PilyQ is fashionable for flaunting yet functional enough to handle whatever your sporty side can throw at it. The ties at the neck and back are easily adjustable, and the low-rise bottom comes in two cuts — full or teeny.

$168, pilyq.com

Pocket beach blanket

The Matador Pocket Blanket 2.0

Have a seat on the sand with this water-repellent, puncture-resistant blanket. It fits up to four adults comfortably and conveniently folds up to the size of a wallet. Bonus: The weighted corners have built-in stakes and sand pockets so the blanket always stays put!

Women's flip flop

'Ohana Koa Sandals

OluKai’s ultra-comfy, water-resistant thongs feature a quick-drying upper, a compression-molded EVA midsole for superior support, and a wide foot bed that allows your toes to spread out and move naturally — just as they would in wet sand!

Kopari sunscreen

Sundaze Mineral Face Sunscreen

This grease-free daily SPF 30 from Kopari is virtually weightless, making it ideal under makeup as a primer. It’s packed with antioxidants and vitamin E to fight free radicals, and it hydrates like a moisturizer thanks to a blend of coconut water and hyaluronic acid.

$34, kopari.com

Jaunt cooler

Jaunt Cooler

The ultra-tough waterproof cooler from Icemule keeps things chilly for more than 24 hours and holds up to 9 liters (think: a six-pack with ice). Nifty feature: You can add air to boost the insulation and better protect your edibles, and when you’re done, the cooler rolls up into a ball!

$80, icemulecoolers.com

compact paddle board

Compact SUP

This full-size stand-up paddleboard from Red Paddle Co. is as rigid and durable as a standard board when inflated yet folds down to half that size! It comes with a backpack, a five-piece paddle, pump, leash and removable fins — water on which to paddle not included.

$1,900, redpaddleco.com

Turf

Nano 20 backpack

Nano 20 Backpack

Made from high-density nylon and polyester, this rugged 20-liter backpack from Gregory has exterior stretch mesh pockets for instant access to whatever you need. But its best feature is the fit: The pack literally hugs your body yet keeps you surprisingly dry with a ventilated back panel, padded hip belt and shoulder harness.

$65, gregorypacks.com

silicone water bottle

Hydaway Water Bottle

When open, this BPA-free silicone bottle holds up to 17 ounces. When you’re done hydrating, it flattens into a slim disc that fits inside a pocket. For a little extra, you can buy a carbon filter disc that removes bad tastes and odors.

$25, hydawaybottle.com

Camping hammock

Mantis Camping Hammock

Kammock designed the perfect summer hammock — a lightweight hammock tent that sets up in seconds, and it features a built-in insect net and a rain-fly shelter to keep you dry and bug-free. Best yet: It’s silky soft and collapses down smaller than a sleeping bag!

Wireless ear buds

Ally Wireless Earbuds

Cleer’s water-resistant earbuds last up to 10 hours and come in a slim charging case that offers an additional 20 hours of tune time. Wings keep the buds locked into place, and when you remove them from your ears, they pause your music automatically.
