The Perks of summer: 1) 30% off dapper sneakers (the kinds you can wear sans socks) from Amsterdam Shoe Co. 2) Ultra-lightweight hammocks that feel like cozy kangaroo pouches. 3) A no-electricity-required bamboo amplifier for your smartphone. Bring it wherever summer takes you...

A Bag. A Blanket. A Bag-Blanket.
