Look of the Week: Outside Lands Festival Essentials


There's only one week left until three full days of music and mayhem begins at Outside Lands. Here's everything you need (in compliance with festival rules, of course) to survive the weekend in style.

1. Vanguard Endeavor ED Binocular, $269-$399

We checked, and binoculars are super allowed. Rock them with your head held high. 

2. JJ Cole Essentials Water Resistant Fold-Up Blanket, $29.99

Even if you're harder than hardcore, you're bound to need a sit-down recharge here and there. 

3. Platypus plusBottle 1-Liter Water Bottle, $16.95

With no glass or stainless steel bottles allowed, our pick goes to this lightweight, packable plastic number.

4. Public V7 Limited Edition Bicycle, $549

Do yourself a favor–bike to the festival and take advantage of the complimentary bike valet at Marx Meadow. 

5. Help Remedies, $4-$30

From "Help, I'm horny" to "Help I have an aching body," make sure you're prepared for anything. 

6. Kiehl's Activated Sun Protector SPF 50, $25

There's no doubt we're all hoping for sunny skies, but don't let those overcast clouds fool you–they cause burns, too. 

7. Alite Hikari 3-Way Backpack, Shoulder Bag and Tote, $84

Need a cool bag to carry all of the above (and then some)? Oh, you want it to be locally designed with three different carry options and plenty of space? Done, done and done.
