BroBible summer gear guide

Grunt Style/Ninja/Orvis

The 4th of July has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to pack up the inflatable pool and Hawaiian shirts. There’s plenty of summer left to enjoy, and your sunburn needs to last until October. We here at BroBible believe in savoring every last morsel of warm weather and chill vibes, which is why we’ve compiled the perfect guide of must-haves from our favorite brands to make the most of summer.

Grunt Style

Grunt Style patriotic apparel

Grunt Style

Who says patriotic shirts and gear are just reserved for the 4th of July? Our Founding Fathers wanted to wear badass gear all the time, but those damn redcoats tried to stop them from having a good time. Now, look where we all are: we’re the greatest country in the world and they have to eat beans on toast. I think we won more than just our independence. We won the right to wear awesome Grunt Style apparel 365 days a year.

Go for a long hike, set up the perfect campsite, and find some serenity by the water with a little fly fishing. If you’re a fishing novice like me and need to stock up for your next summer adventure, start with the proper apparel from the experts at Orvis.
