Forget clothes

Why bother spending a lot of money on your kid’s summer wear when a NoZone One‑Piece Sun Suit may cover your little one for the entire season? Well, at least while the sun is out. The stretchy sun suit is made of a type of polyester that’s a UPF of 50+ and blocks 98 percent of UV rays. It’s highly chlorine- and salt-resistant yet latex-free and obviously fast drying. And, of course, it’s made in Canada. $40 at Mountain Equipment Coop. mec.ca.

Fondo fun

The new MEC Rouleur SS Jersey is tight enough to be race-worthy and practical for everyday cycling. It has three back pockets that with reflective tabs for nighttime visibility, silicone gripper dots to prevent ride-up and, yes, graphics that tell world you shop at Mountain Equipment Coop. $69 for women; $75 for men. mec.ca.

Island crafting

If this is your summer to invest in a kayak, you may want to make it a Halo SR-130 from Vancouver Island’s Seaward. The company has been handcrafting kayaks for 24 years — and it appears that its reputation hasn’t gone unnoticed. The Halo SR-130 just received an Outside magazine 2013 Gear of the Year Award. Seaward kayaks are available at Mountain Equipment Co-op. $1550. mec.ca.
