Raviv faithfully uses a portable speaker, custom slides and a giant insulated mug at the pool.

trio of JBL barrel Bluetooth speakers

“Gotta have tunes! The JBL Xtreme 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker from HPG Brands puts out the perfect tunes to soak up that hot summer sun,” he says. The barrel-shaped speaker delivers massive sound with four drivers and two pumping bass radiators for 15 hours of play time. It’s waterproof and dustproof for outdoor durability.

custom decorated slides

“Most people would probably prefer to flip-flop themselves into the pool,” Raviv adds, “but I would much rather slide right in with the Slides from Sock101.” These sporty summer slides offer two printable panels: the microfiber leather upper and the lightweight, flexible EVA sole.

custom branded Stanley Quencher

“I don’t want to refill my drink every 30 minutes,” Raviv says. “With the 40-oz. Stanley Quencher from Starline, I can keep cool in the pool sipping on my favorite – Tito’s and soda with an orange.” The super-popular double-wall vacuum insulated mug keeps drinks cold up to 11 hours (and ice for two days), and its three-position lid features an opening for the reusable straw, a sip-through opening and full closure.

Raviv wants to try a fold-up wagon to tote his gear. “You won’t have to worry about carrying all your stuff anymore, and it’s a great way to stay organized,” he says.

Raviv would suggest sun protection with a convertible bucket hat and a sunscreen/lip balm combo. “My mom hates when I don’t wear a hat,” he says, “so make her happy and your doctor happy by covering your head with a nice bucket hat. Make your friends happy, too, by flipping the bucket hat upside down and turning it into a mini cooler!”

Koozie 36-can cooler backpack

“I also use the Koozie Olympus 36-Can Cooler Backpack to load up our drinks and snacks. I’ve tried dozens of coolers, but this one is by far my favorite,” Williams adds. “I’ve had it for at least five years, and it’s still in perfect condition. I also love wearing it as a backpack because my arms are usually full with a bag and my children’s pool toys.” It’s easy to wipe clean and offers a choice between the wrapped top and side carry handles or padded shoulder straps. Available in six colors.

Sol Mate waterproof polymer tote bag with logo

“And of course, you can’t forget a pool bag to haul all of your items,” Williams says. “I really like the Sol Mate Tote Bag because it’s made of a rubber material that’s quick-drying and easy to clean. Its generous size can easily fit your towels and sunscreen, and the long handles make it easy to throw on your shoulder and go.” Available in five colors with a 7-by-4-inch imprint area.

Williams wants to try this cap designed especially for women.

Infinity Her ponytail cap

“I’m excited to try the Infinity Her Women’s Pigment-Dyed Cap. Finally, a cap made for women!” she says. “This cap will keep my face shaded and has a concealed ponytail opening so I can keep my hair up (and dry) at the pool. This specific cap style is also makeup-resistant, breathable and has a moisture-management sweatband.” The 100% Better Cotton pigment-washed twill Cassie cap comes in 15 colors with fun under-visor patterns (cashmere blue/floral shown).

“You never get rid of a great beach towel. The ROI is incredible, and your brand will be associated with fun beach and pool days,” Williams says. This 100% cotton Oversized Velour Beach Towel provides a 26-by-48-inch imprint area and comes in 11 colors. Decorate with print or embroidery.
