Gear Up for National Get Outdoors Month: Essential Clothing for Alfresco Adventures

Elevate any experience and embrace the great outdoors in style and comfort.

As the summer season approaches and the sun shines brighter, there's no better time to celebrate the beauty of nature than during National Get Outdoors Month! This special occasion, held annually every June, encourages people of all ages to step outside, breathe in the fresh air and immerse themselves in outdoor activities. Free Country, a brand synonymous with adventure and comfort, is here to ensure you’re well-prepared to create unforgettable memories in nature. Whether you're planning a hike, a camping trip or a day at the beach, having the right clothing is essential to optimize any outing.

To help get you into the best gear, we’re hosting a month of exciting giveaways. Each Monday in June, three lucky customers from the previous week's orders on FreeCountry.com will be randomly selected to receive a $100 gift card. Plus, every Friday in June we’re giving away two $100 gift cards on Instagram—follow us @freecountryapparel to find out how to win!

Need some inspiration for what to buy? Here are the key items to make the most of your outdoor escapades.

Active Shirts
Whether you're hiking through scenic trails, cycling along picturesque routes or engaging in heart-pumping outdoor workouts, a quality active shirt will be your wardrobe workhorse. Look for lightweight and breathable options with sweat-wicking properties to help regulate your body temperature. Our Microtech Chill tops will literally keep you chilled—the four-way stretch fabric dries quick and wicks away moisture so you can get active outside or savor the sun—sans sweat. You’ll never have to worry about overheating again!

Versatile Swimwear
National Get Outdoors Month also offers the perfect opportunity to take advantage of water-based activities. No matter if you're hitting up the beach, exploring crystal-clear lakes or lounging by the pool, our swimwear offers the perfect blend of comfort and style. Choose from a variety of silhouettes catered toward every type of body, all designed to provide a flattering fit and excellent freedom of movement. Our standout features include adjustable and convertible straps, removable padding, UV protection, quick-drying fabrics, comfortable waistbands and four-way stretch. Plus, we use recycled materials—so you can feel good and look good when you dive in.

Sun Protection
While we encourage everyone to get out there and soak up the summer sunshine, it’s crucial to shield your skin from the sun's harmful rays. UPF clothing, which is rated on a scale of 15 to 50+, is specifically designed to protect you from damaging UV rays. Free Country’s UPF collection has a rating of 50+, which means the fabric blocks more than 98% of UV radiation. Our high-tech fabrics let you cover up in style with sun shirts, shorts, skirts and swimwear so you can enjoy any outdoor excursion, safely.

Lightweight Layers
Even on warm summer days, the weather can be unpredictable, especially in outdoor settings. Be prepared for varying conditions with a lightweight jacket built for performance, but designed with style in mind. Free Country's selection of terrific toppers provides protection from anything Mother Nature may throw your way. Keep our X2O rain jacket, which conveniently packs away into its own bag, on hand for any unexpected downpours. Our Windshear jackets are four-season wonders with a wind- and water-resistant exterior and super soft knit jersey lining. For situations when temperatures take a dip—like changing elevations during a hike or late-night campfire hangs—this 3-in-1 Systems jacket features a removable, reversible inner vest made from the coziest sherpa fabric.
