The July 4th weekend is almost upon us, so we here at The Manual wanted to help get your packin’ on. If you’ll be hanging at the pool, headed to a beach, or planning a staycation, we’ve got a few packing options for just what you may need for this (hopefully) sun-filled long holiday weekend.
Osprey – This just may be the best bag to take away this, or any weekend. The combining of the retractable handle, wheels, backpack straps and a detachable daypack, paired with lightweight fabrics and a hip-belt. Pull it through airports, then tote on the trail.
Zachary Prell – This shirt is a combination of a dobby (a woven pattern of raised dots) and stripes, which makes it a modern take on vintage. Both lightweight and versatile, can you say: weekend ready?
GitmanVintage – The Aloha print really communicates the love of summer. This lightweight tailored short can be dressed up, or worn casually. Wear them with solids or stripes, but grab some BBQ and chilled libation.
SeaVees – A washed linen sneaker? Well, yes! This pair of comfy lace-up favorites is not only comfortable, but feature a foot bed that is lined in antibacterial and hypoallergenic modal (bamboo) canvas to keep your feet dry and odor free. That is reason enough!

Board-1
Carhartt Work in Progress – Nothing like a classic tank for a day at the beach/pool, or out for a bike ride. This single layer jersey knit always works well as a layering piece #gettanked
Aether – Lace-up this clean flat-laying front swim short. It’s low-profile Velcro side tabs along the waist allow for a unique fit. Color-blocked and quick dry, this suit is true form & function.
Teva at L.L. Bean – Whether at the beach, pool or back yard, this rugged sandal is ideal. Not only is the nubuck leather comfortable, but the foot-bed conforms to the shape of your foot.

Board-2
Sunski – Named after a favored hiking trail, the new Dipseas’ sunglasses blend the style of the city with the spirit of the outdoors. With their polarized lens, they tell Al Roker to bring on the sun!
Sunspel – A weekend staple. This zip-front 100%cotton hoodie is unbeatably soft and the perfect option for a cool night around beach bonfire.
Jack Spade – A t-shirt goes with everything. Soft and lived-in style, this pop of blue make this iconic menswear-classic perfect to go with every outfit.
Freemans Sporting Club – Made in NYC of fine Japanese cotton. This straight-legged tapered pant gets better with each washing. Rolled-up for ease, red, white and you.
Cole Haan – This sporty wingtip oxford in mesh, is as light as a shoe once reserved for long distance runners. Add comfort and lightweight to your packing checklist.
