Crew Essentials: Top Gifts for Hitting the Town

mommamiaMy most memorable outdoor moment would be the first summer I spent as a raft guide. It was filled with gnarly whitewater, midnight bonfire parties, everlasting friendships, and a different adventure everyday.

Mia’s a crew member at our store in Downtown Asheville. Here are her top picks for a chilly winter adventure around the city center.

Hydro Flask 24oz Standard Wide Mouth
One of the best water bottles out there! It keeps my beverage hot or cold for extended periods of time. They come in fun colors and are made of stainless steel so I don’t have to worry about breaking them.


Sakroots Wallet
These wallets are a great gift for women who love creativity, and unique designs. I especially love these wallets because behind each pattern, Sakroots will donate to a charity resembling that pattern.
