Don't Go On Summer Vacation Without These Essentials!

Posted by Nathan Miller on Jun 13, 2014 7:30:00 AM


There’s one in every bunch, isn’t there? The kid who comes into class with skinned knees and elbows. The girl in the office that comes in so red you don’t have to bet she didn’t use sunscreen. The guy who shaves his head; he forgot his hat and got brain-freeze. You can also tell which guy forgot his work gloves, because his hands are blistered. Outdoor adventures call for outdoor gear, and none is better than Pugs Gear.



Spring is here, so there’s no need to get brain-freeze while digging your car out of the snow. However, the sun can cause just as much damage if your head isn’t covered. Don’t plant your garden or wash the car, boat or RV without a hat. The Centers for Disease Control, or CDC, reports that it can take as much as 12 hours for the skin to show the effects of the sun. But it only takes 15 minutes for harmful UV rays to damage the skin. To combat this, wear a hat with at least a three inch brim, which will shade the neck, ears and face from the sun. Remember your Pugs Gear hat when you begin your outdoor adventures.



Bandanas can be used in so many ways to fight the harmful effects of the sun. Outdoor adventures on the water call for two bandanas that can be used as a shawl. Tie two of them together for a swimsuit cover at the pool. Use them as a mantilla to cover the shoulders after a swim. Bandanas can be tied cunningly into a halter. It doesn’t take long for the sun to ferret out a beginner in outdoor adventures, so cover up.



Outdoor adventures in the garden can scratch your hands. When the chemicals in fertilizers get into those scratches, you’ll need a doctor’s care. Clipping the bushes, trimming tree branches from power lines and weed-eating the edges of the walk and around the post box can get your hands blistered. You don’t want to get your hands blistered or infected, and then come inside to cook or give the kids a bath. Protect them with Pugs Gear gloves.



The same sun that gives life to plants, keeps us warm and lights the way can sure be rough on the eyes. The American Academy of Ophthalmology has some good tips about sunglasses. For instance, those who have had cataract surgery and those on certain drugs such as tetracycline, doxycycline, psoralens and phenothiazine should wear UV blocking sunglasses. This is because the cataract surgery or the condition for which the above-mentioned photosensitizing drugs are prescribed makes the eyes more sensitive. Before opening the front door, reach for the sunglasses.


Sunglasses protect the eyes from sources of light that people wouldn’t ordinarily think could hurt them. When was the last time you were blinded when the sun hit the glass of the car in front of you? The times when sunglasses are the most necessary are when the pavement folks drive on is wet with oils, when driving in the snow, or in the fall months when there is no humidity to block the full force of the sun. 


Today’s sunglasses are at least 99 to 100 percent UV blocking. The color of the lenses is significant for many reasons. A gray, brown or black lens is good for very bright light like you would find on water or a white sand beach. Polarized lenses help with reflecting light such as light reflected from snow. Wrap-around sunglasses protect the eyes from the sides as well as head-on.


Before you outdoor adventures beginners leave the house, grab your hat, bandana, gloves and affordable sunglasses. There are summer concerts, water sports, daily runs around the park and lots of car washing to do, and we wouldn’t want you to be that one in every bunch. Visit Pugsgear.com to check out our whole selection of great summer gear!

I've Stopped Wearing Anything Other Than Affordable Sunglasses

Posted by Adrian Doggrell on Oct 12, 2013 9:45:00 AM

Growing up, I never understood how people always had sunglasses with them. Whenever I got a pair, I would scratch them, break them, or inevitably lose them, yet somehow other people managed to hold on to theirs. Luckily, I was recently introduced to Pugs sunglasses for men by a close friend, and he opened my eyes to a whole new world of protection and style.
