Everyone knows that we can build blazing campfires, open beer bottles with our teeth and make sweet love in canoes (without tipping).
But even the hardiest Canadienne will accept a little help when offered. For a more efficient summer of love we’re snagging swish essentials from Victorinox Swiss Army. We’ll stand on guard for the Canadian Flag Sportsman ($32) - with corkscrew and bottle opener – and see thee rise on a red beach mat with carrying strap and built-in towel ($95). Also in stock, a cool collection of staples for fashion-forward outdoorsy types like moss green swim shorts ($85) and water-resistant shirt dresses ($295) with reflective detailing (perfect for sneaking around after dark).
Just remember, if the canoe’s rocking, don’t come knocking. —Marianne Wisenthal
