Mere's Favorite Outdoor Spot:

Mere loves to camp. Her favorite campground here in the Bay Area is Sky Camp in Point Reyes, just north of our Alite HQ. It's just a mile hike in, and has the nicest campsites in the area. It has amazing views and a nice 4 mile hike down to the beach.

Why the Sexy Hotness is Mere's Top Alite Product:

Mere loves the Sexy Hotness because it's so innovative - there's nothing else like it on the market! She loves to show people how easy and versatile it is to wear. It's functional, silly, and fun. Better yet, you can zip them together, which makes cuddling up in tents easier!

The Sexy Hotness is made for lovers - the more love, the better!

Why Mere Loves the Slingshot:

The slingshot is Mere's favorite Camp Fun product because it's interactive. People love to come into the shop to play with them. It brings them back to their childhood.
