Here’s a collection of items that will keep you looking polished and sharp when temperatures rise this season:

Marmot has amazing lightweight jackets that are perfect for boating, hiking, camping and nights out when you need an extra light layer. Marmot is noted for its high quality craftsmanship, so this is a sound wardrobe investment with an added style bonus. These jackets are windproof and feature GORE-TEX Active fabric to ensure that you stay dry and comfortable on your yacht, kayak or waterfall trek. This jacket actually packs down to the size of your fist for summer vacationing and is ideal to have on hand for unexpected summer downpours. Find it and loads more at http://www.marmot.com.

Sperry Topsider is fantastic for every season, but especially for summer. Boat shoes can take you from a casual Friday at work to a café to a date to boating and beyond. There’s not much you can’t do in boat shoes and Sperry has styles that range from classic and traditional to whimsical and unique. See which ones appeal to you at http://www.sperrytopsider.com. You can also find accessories, dressier shoes, clothing, swimwear and flip-flops on the website, so it’s a one-stop site for all things Summer 2014.

Hobie Polarized Sunglasses from So-Cal have been rendering men and women stylish in the sun since 1950 and are perfect for water sportsmen because they provide clearer, sharper and more precise vision. They come in an array of different lenses, colors and styles and quite frankly, Hobie covers every necessity in the most stylish way imaginable. The Dogpatch Motion Collection is inspired by brilliant colored pieces of well-worn, translucent sea glass. See which ones suit you the best this summer at http://www.hobiepolarized.com. They offer reader styles too.

Rider sandals are so great for summer because of their Instant Dry Technology that doesn’t hold moisture (so there’ll be no more slipping around in your sandals), They’re boat-friendly too because of non-marking Flexpand soles, and dry foam insoles render them soft and comfortable with arch support too. They were voted “The Best Recovery Sandal in America” so you know they’ll stand the all-day-long test. The final detail that seals the deal? They’re stylish. Peruse the complete collection at http://www.ridersandals.com.

J. Paul Skincare products for men for anti-aging and for shaving will keep you fresh and well groomed when summer bears down. Protect your skin and stave off wrinkles with the J. Paul Daily Defense Cream with PT3 Amino Acid Bioactive Complex, or pick up a travel kit for your vacation. The Guard Face and Body Lotion with Aloe and Vitamin E has a SPF of 20 for boating and other summer outings. Find them at http://www.jpaulskincare.com.

Br4ss men’s underwear is colorful, premium-crafted, cut to fit properly and distinctive. If you’re stripping down to your briefs, you’ll most likely want to make a lasting good impression and Br4ss will definitely do the trick. You’ll love the amazing designs and soft comfort of this brand, which you can find at http://www.br4ss.com/wordpress/.

From head to toe, you should be good to go this summer!
