4 Colorado Essentials You Should Have
Regardless if you’re a Coloradan or a visitor, these items are essentials for walking around the city or hiking in the mountains. No matter what your interests are, you’ll find that these products will come in handy and make your experience all the better.
The saying, "If you don't like the weather, wait fifteen minutes," is particularly true for Colorado. The weather here can be sunny and warm one day to overcast and snowing the next. Jackets are a Colorado essential since they’re not too bulky and can fit into a bag when you don’t need them, yet they’re warm enough when the temperature drops unexpectedly.
2. Reusable Water Bottle
Stay hydrated in the city or mountains with a reusable water bottle. Not only is it good for your health, but it’s also beneficial for the planet. Ditch single-use plastic water bottles for an insulated water bottle that will keep your water cool and refreshing.
3. Portable Charger
Keep your electronics juiced up and ready to go with a portable charger or power bank. Skip the stress of trying to find an electrical outlet or conserve a dying phone battery by carrying around your very own power source. Efficient, portable, and sleek, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that a full battery is always within reach.
