You Got This is a series that spotlights the gear you need to improve one area of your life.

Summer is upon us, and it might feel like the first time in way too long that you can truly get out and enjoy your time off. Whether you’re heading to the beach, pool, campground, or just hanging in your own backyard this season, your fav summer activities are best enjoyed without the sweaty frustration that comes from schlepping the wrong gear (camping in an old tent full of holes that are basically inviting hungry mosquitos to feast on you all night? Not so fun!). Get the gear you need at Walmart and get on with your adventure, already. Summer should be a stress-free zone.

Bring your pup

Don’t let your little furball’s age or endurance keep you from bringing him along on the adventure: Just strap on this handy pet backpack, and he can ride in style while you galivant, whether you’re heading to the airport or biking to a picnic. It’s a lot more comfortable than having to carry a hot tired dog in your arms.

Lighten the load

You can’t do the beach right without all the things, but you’ve wizened up to the schlepping it all bare-handed situation. Save your shoulders with this durable, easy-to-clean wagon that won’t make you regret packing that heavy cooler full of nice cold bevvies.

Upgrade your beach towel

You could have a plain ol’ beach towel, or you could have a beach towel with style. Which do you choose? Throw it in your new beach wagon and you’re good to go.

Get a little fishy

Ready to cast your line this summer? Floats, sinkers, hooks, a minnow net, a fish gripper, a filet knife, and a cutting board are just a few of the things you’ll find in this Mary Poppins bag of a fishing kit, which all fits easily into the included handy bucket.

Cook up a campsite feast

Elevate your campsite meals with the Rolls Royce of camping cookware. This 2-piece set heats evenly, is easy to clean, has foldable handles for easy storage and is made with grade 1 titanium, which is crafted to last forever. Which means this is literally the last camping cookware you’ll ever need.

Get a grown up scooter

Consider this electric scooter your childhood Razr’s hip older cousin. Commute to work and cruise to happy hour with this scooter’s 500-watt motor, 3 speed modes, and 22-mile battery range keeping you cool as the temps soar.

Don’t settle for lukewarm drinks

No outdoor adventure is complete without a celebration at the end, and this cooler bag makes it easy to bring several 6-packs and keep them cool until you’re ready to crack them open, when you’re ready to reward all your hard effort.

Take the assist

Saving gas by biking to work this summer is a great idea, until you factor in the sweat factor. Roll up cool and crisp on this handy e-bike, which features a 250-watt pedal assist hub-drive motor that means you can tackle those hills without soaking through your button down. And on weekends, head for the hills with this baby’s sturdy aluminum frame and front suspension fork keeping you comfy even on bumpy terrain.
