Other features include Interior stretch cuffs with thumb holes, core ventilation system, removable helmet compatible hood with adjustable opening, and internal mesh goggle pocket.
Wet and cold feet is the best way to ruin your fun in the snow. If you’re planning to be adventerous this winter, make sure you have a proper pair of boots.

The removable ThermoPlus liner will keep your toes warm in temperatures as low as -40 degrees fahrenheit, making them suitable for virtually all of your snow covered activities.

All ski masks are designed to keep your face warm, but few will make as much of statement on the slopes as the Beardski.

Tracking your running results can help you achieve goals, motivate for your next run, and stay on track – but keeping tabs on your progress doesn’t need to be complicated. With the Nike+ Sportwatch (which is powered by TomTom GPS) you’ll be able to track your time, distance, pace, heart rate (with optional sensor), and calories burned. You can also view your mapped route with pace data/changes in elevation on Nikeplus.com.
Drawstring sack-style backpacks are great for heading to the gym or a pick-up game at the local basketball hoop, but sometimes it’s a bit difficult to find smaller objects as there are typically no compartments in such bags. This Adidas Sport Sackpack has all the convenient features of a traditional drawstring sack bag, but also features a front zipper compartment for your smaller items such as keys, along with two side mesh compartments that are perfect for water bottles. However, if you still prefer the simpler version, check out this Nike Gym Sack.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – we love games that you can play while holding a beer. One of the classics of that genre is horseshoes and if you’re going to play, why not make it official? This pair of Gordon professional pitching horseshoes is sanctioned by the NHPA (National Horseshoe Pitching Association) and constructed of forged carbon steel with a powder coat finish. Let the lawn games begin!
If you’re looking to add some yards to your drive this golf season, or impress your new father-in-law with a kick-ass present this coming Father’s Day – check out this driver from Callaway. The Callaway RAZR Fit Tour Authentic Driver features OptiFit technology allowing you to adjust the face angle and center of gravity of the club. The crown of the driver contains over 7 million turbostratic carbon fibers making it stronger and ligther than titanium. It even has aerodynamic contours so there is less air resistance and drag on your downswing, making it one hell of an advanced golf club. Still not sure if it’s enough to keep me out of the woods though.
