Enjoying Outdoors with Stanley Brand
This post is sponsored by Stanley Brand. As always, all opinions are my own.
I don’t know about y’all, but we’re an outdoorsy people. And after the past year, well, we’ve been spending more time outside than ever. But it’s easy to spend time outdoors in beautiful Western North Carolina! There are mountains and waterfalls and lovely little hamlets. I’ve lost count of the number of times in the past year that a hike or a walk with the dogs, or even just a guitar jam out in the fresh air, has saved one of us from certain insanity. Of course, gathering around a campfire with my favorite people has been a nice way to end the day. So let me tell you, we’ve put our outdoor gear, our travel mugs, and water bottles galore through the paces, and Stanley Brand takes the cake (or maybe the s’more) every time.
Forever a Classic
Stanley Brand products are rugged yet stylish, durable, and dependable. I’m never worried about dents or scratches on anything, and those classic lines with simple colors complement a mountain-scape.
And for lack of a better phrase, the Stanley Brand “user experience” is tried and true. I can’t tell you how many travel mugs or insulated bottles I’ve been through that have a useless lid, or leak on you, or don’t even fit in your cup holder. The Stanley Go Tumbler is awesome. Coffee, tea, water, hot or cold, you name it, this cup is perfect.
And then there’s the Classic Legendary Camp Mug. Imagine taking this bad boy out for a spin for a morning dog walk or just for a nice hot cup of coffee on the back porch. No more microwaving your cold coffee half an hour after it’s poured. I definitely have to keep an eye on both the camp mug and the travel mug because my kids keep trying to take off with half the set. Maybe I should get them a few mugs for their birthday, so ours don’t disappear.
How cool is the Classic Stay Hot French Press? It would be perfect to pack along for camping or backpacking.
Made to Last
On another note, we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about sustainability over the past year – what is going to last and what are the little things that we really want to make count. And now, more than ever, I’m just tired of buying junk that falls apart and doesn’t last. It’s tedious, frustrating, wasteful, and I can’t be the only one that’s grown to really luxuriate in the simple pleasures of the day. That so often comes down to quality and dependability, and that’s Stanley to a T. Normally, I don’t do sponsored posts, but when Stanley Brand contacted me, it was an immediate yes because they really embody this dedication to classic quality.
At the end of the day, whether you’re a hardcore hiker or just taking your coffee outside, fresh air sure does a body good and puts a mind at ease too. We’re enjoying time outdoors even more with Stanley by our side. Be sure to check out their complete line of handy products. I’m sure you’ll find something you like to take along on your next outing.
