Lifeproof iPhone 5s - Nuud Series
LifeProof
Sold by: Amazon

Fit Guide
When you head off to hit the slopes or the beach, you probably take your phone – who doesn’t these days? iPhones, beaches and snow are a tricky combination, though because your phone is not as hardy as nature. This Lifeproof case solves the problem – it’s one of the highest rated cases for all iPhone models. It is waterproof, drop proof, sand proof and dirt proof. The case is as skinny as could be, yet completely protects your phone and keeps it completely functional. We’re showing you the 5s black version here, but it’s made for most iPhones and worth every penny.

A beach vacation also requires a proper hat - and by proper, we mean protects you from the sun and looks good. This baseball style from Goorin is designed for just that. It is made with a SPF 50 polyester fabric to keep the ultraviolet rays off your head. The white color reflects the sun, and the longer bill keeps the sun off your face. Your head will be safe at the beach all day – don’t forget your sunblock to take care of the rest.

If you’re heading for the snow on your vacation, this wool zip neck Scandinavian-style sweater will keep you warm and looking good – both, on the slopes and in the lodge. Dale of Norway has been making knitwear for the Norwegian climate since 1879, so they really know how to cover all the details. Not only is the neck lined in fleece for extra comfort, the 4-ply Heilo yarn used to make this sweater is the gold standard of sport weight wools. They developed it themselves and it’s the best, providing warmth and natural wicking properties to keep you dry.

This jacket from The North Face is designed for the slopes but looks great off of them, too, making it a great jacket for a ski vacation. It is insulated with 550 fill down, so it will keep you warm at the top of the mountain with the proper layers, and just as warm when you are walking around town. It has the ski essentials - water resistant nylon shell, an insulated hood, hand warmer pockets. Yet, it also has an internal media security pocket and lots of other technical bells and whistles.
