10 R1A Things You Need Before You Hit The Pool This Summer

Goodbye school, hello pool! When summer comes, it means that you can enjoy days by the poolside with friends, family members, or even all on your own (maybe it’s just you and that hot new book that everyone’s talking about, and that’s a mood). Before you head down, though, you’d better be sure you have everything you need -- that means sunscreen, snacks, and these great R1A products.

1. Maryland Flag With Rope Handles Bag

Your towel, juicy magazine and pool pass won’t tote themselves! Unfortunately, you have to do it, but it’s a lot easier to do it in this tote bag.

2.Maryland Flag Flip Flops

If you don’t have a favorite pair of flip flops, now’s the perfect time to meet the pair of your dreams. This one’s great for more than just the pool, of course, but especially great for kicking off before your next swim.

  1. Baltimore Orioles Black and Orange Flag Board Shorts

Do you bleed black and orange? You may need to see a doctor about that, but more importantly, you’ll need to buy this pair of Baltimore-themed baseball board shorts. Listening to the ball game by the poolside sounds like paradise to us.

  1. Maryland Flag Crab Black Board Shorts

Maybe you’re not really a sports person. Maybe you’re looking for a more classic flag and crab board short, and we’ve got exactly what you need.

  1. Maryland Flag Bikini Top

Your Maryland love can be worn right over your heart, thanks to this Maryland flag black string bikini top! Perfect for pairing with shorts or bikini bottoms.

  1. Maryland Flag Bikini Bottom

Need a set of bikini bottoms to pair with that top? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Complete your set with this bright and colorful one that will make you the envy of the pool.

  1. Natty Boh Carolina Blue Baseball Hat                                                              Even if you’re not playing baseball, or doing anything more strenuous than lounging on a chair and soaking up the sun, a baseball cap like this blue Boh logo one is a must-have for the pool scene!

  1. Maryland Flag Shades

Keep the sun out of your eyes on those bright summer days at the pool -- after all, you should be the one blinding everyone else with your good looks and sense of style!

  1. Land of Pleasant Living Mint Tumbler

Staying hydrated is crucial, even when you’re surrounded by water! (Trust us, it’s way better to drink water from this tumbler than it is to get a mouthful of water from the pool.)

  1. Maryland Flag Tumbler 

Not a fan of mint tones? You can take a sip from this classic Maryland flag-patterned tumbler instead.
