Top 5 Adventure Clothing must-haves for your Easter Outdoor Activities

After the glorious summer break over the Festive Season, the Easter holidays are often eagerly awaited as the next family fun time-out, with adventure on the agenda as the weather cools.

Here are the top 5 adventure clothing must-haves recommended by the BoysToys Shop to ensure you’re comfortable and well-equipped to make the most of your family holiday.

1. Jackets for protection from the elements The Boerboel Kalahari Parka Jacket in olive, putty or charcoal, with detachable hood, high collar and heavy padding, is ideal for the cold and often windy conditions brought on by autumn. Its military look, with multiple pockets offering ample storage, is perfect for activities where you’re outdoors for extended stretches of time, such as hiking, hunting and fishing. For something a little more feminine, there’s also the Wildebees Ladies Sekelbos Technical Softshell Jacket available in fawn. It has a padded hood, elasticated cuffs, a heavy-duty front zip and the inner lining is padded and quilted for warmth and comfort.



2.    A hat or cap for protection of your face and head Next on your list should be either a cap or wide-brimmed hat - this is especially important for people who sweat a lot during exercise and where extra protection from the sun is required. Made from cotton, the Urban Supply Bush Hat and Urban Supply Kruger Hat both have wide brims, are crushable, hand-washable and have an adjustable chin strap and drawstring. Available in a range of colours, they are particularly useful when frequent applications of sunscreen are not feasible, and when extra protection is required for the face, ears and eyes. Dubbed the toughest hats on the market, they are endorsed by the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA).    
On the other hand, if you prefer a cap, the Nordiske Precision Cap in sand, washed navy or destressed olive, is a one-size-fits-all cap that has an adjustable tuck strap and buckle. Made from soft, breathable cotton, this cap is designed to keep you comfortable all day long.
For something a little more Avant Garde, there’s the Rogue (need we say more!) series of hats. These range from the Huntsman and One Ten hats to the Airheads, the Breezy and the Rogue Tin Cloth Boshoed. The last-named is made from 100% cotton canvas that is waxed to give it strength and extra water resistance. The great news is that the Rogue range also comes in kiddies’ sizes.



3.    Stretch shorts and cargo pants When in the bush, stretch cargo pants and shorts are fabulous when you want to relax and feel at ease.  Crafted by Boerboel, the men’s and ladies’ ranges are made from stretch cotton with a luxe feel, and have hip pockets and back pockets with a mid-rise true waistline and belt loops. The cargo shorts and full-length pants have additional thigh pockets for extra storage. The ladies’ shorts, available in olivia, blush pink and stone are a definite outdoors must-have! 



4.    Trendy shirt and t-shirt combinations The autumn weather can be unpredictable, which is the perfect excuse to pair a brand name t-shirt with a trendy casual shirt for extra jauntiness. 
Boerboel believes that a good t-shirt is all about a stylish shape and amazing materials. Their new premium cotton t-shirts are not only soft, light and comfortable, but as they are pre-shrunk, they ensure a great fit wash after wash. 
To top one of their comfortable classic t-shirts, choose a Wildebees Mens Casual Canvas Cotton Shirt or Short Sleeve Vented Twill Shirt made from 100% cotton material. These shirts have curved bottoms and the twill shirt is vented at the back for greater comfort in hot weather.



5.    Veldskoene designed for comfort  And finally, what would walking around in the bush be without a pair of genuine Sapmok Niassa Vellies? This timeless leather shoe has a square toe that gives it a wider fit. Handmade in South Africa, it’s fashioned from thick premium quality leather and it has a silicone inner sole and a recyclable TPR sole that’s slip-resistant and water-resistant - perfect for any occasion and any terrain. 
To help you to be kind to planet earth, BoysToys also offers a vellie reviving service at a low cost to give your vellies another chance to be enjoyed and treasured.
