If you’re going to test gear in Colorado, might as well head to one of the most epic landscapes in the Centennial State. The Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve features the largest sand dunes in North America flanked by some of Colorado’s most formidable 14,000-foot peaks. The contrast between the dunes, the snow-capped peaks, and the farmland of the San Luis Valley makes the perfect backdrop for some awesome weekend adventures. Here’s a spotlight on the Flylow women’s gear that took my trip.

The Trekkings pants are as comfortable as they look. From the trail to campsite, these polyester and spandex blend tights were perfect for high performance activity and sunset relaxation. The Intuitive IG Fabric is quick drying and rated for 50+UPF so I was confident that I was protected throughout the time spent wading through creeks and hiking on sun-drenched trails. You don’t have to sacrifice style for performance with these pants. The retro colors and bright blue Bonus: the tights feature a thigh pocket so that you can keep your phone accessible for all those Instagram-able moments.

These shorts are made for creek-wading, dune-hiking, rock-hopping, and everything in between. Their unique design is inspired by surfing’s iconic board shorts, and they’re quick-drying technology and 40+ UPF protection lives up to that inspiration. The breathable fabric moves with you and the rear pocket with the attached cord will make sure that you don’t lose your keys before the end of your adventures. The mid-thigh design also provides some serious comfort and protection for those long days on the trail and in the desert. They also totally match the Moonlight Shirt; pair these two pieces together for a stylish summer adventure look with all the performance you’re looking for in a summer kit.
