The word “heritage” gets thrown around pretty frequently these days; in a digital age where notoriety can come and go overnight, every start-up wants to put a pair of antlers on the wall to impart some sense of history. However, when vintage photos of a long-standing brand’s headquarters include a horse and buggy out front—you can rest assured that it possesses the know-how and work ethic to truly stand the test of time.

Keep reading for a Q&A with Faribault Woolen Mill, the 149-year-old Minnesota manufacturer whose made-in-USA blankets are part of LET’S GO!, our current, road trip-themed Pop-In Shop.

Fresh air. A campfire. Beers cooled in a creek. We can write these things down all day, but it’s impossible to understand the sheer satisfaction that such simple, outdoor pleasures can engender without experiencing them first-hand—and, preferably, with frequency.

Portland brand Poler operates on a simple mission (which desk jockeys like us can appreciate): to get average people outdoors—and out of their everyday routine—more often. They sum it up with a deceptively simple catch phrase/hashtag: #CampVibes, two syllables that manage to instantly evoke dirt underfoot, cedar in your nostrils and a canopy of stars overhead. And they make it effortless, with innovative gear like a sleeping bag you can walk around in, a camera bag that doubles as a cooler, and a Stumptown coffee kit designed for the campsite.

Keep reading for our exclusive Q&A with Poler Co-Founder and Creative Director Benji Wagner, in which he discusses couscous, favorite road trip spots, and thinking like a kid.
