Joby revolutionized tripods with the GorillaPod, which has legs that adjust to uneven surfaces and can wrap around all kinds of objects. The 1K is small, with a ball-head attachment that works with cameras of up to 2.2 pounds. If you want something beefier, go for the 5K.
Our Favorite Running Sunglasses
Suncloud manages to bring quality ingredients (a flexible and durable Grilamid frame, polarized polycarbonate lenses) to an inexpensive set of shades that performs well on the go. We dig the sporty rimless look and full coverage. And Megol pads at the nose and temples help the Contender stay put.
These new glasses from Smith come with two pairs of interchangeable ChromaPop lenses—one for low light, one for full sun—and a magnetic frame that unlocks to make swapping easy. They’re light, and the middle-of-the-road coverage doesn’t make the Caravan look huge on your face.
Forget classic frames. Spy goes futuristic with its Tron 2, which is oversize and has a massive field of view for near goggle-level protection. The shades offer 100 percent UV protection and are made from super durable yet flexible Grilamid.
The polarized lenses in these sunnies change tint based on light conditions, getting darker in bright rays and lighter when you’re under tree cover, making them ideal for trail running in the woods. The adjustable temples and curved frame give you full coverage and a snug fit in a package that weighs just over an ounce.
There’s nothing crazy about the Swank, just a retro frame with shatterproof and scratch-resistant lenses that offer complete UV protection while the hydrophilic rubber nose pads keep everything in place. It's hard to find more capability at this price point.
Zeal took the same Automatic Lens technology it uses in its goggles and brought it to the Big Timber: the tint of the lenses adjusts to the available light. The frames are also made from plant-based Z-Resin (instead of petroleum-based plastic), and Proflex rubber on the temples and nose affords a secure fit.
We featured the BioLite 330 as one of our top choice headlamps in our 2019 Summer Buyer’s Guide. Unlike other angler-fish style lamps, the 330's light lays flush across your forehead. Plus, the light includes a rechargeable battery in the back.
The Z/Cloud has all the qualities we love about Chacos: super adjustable polyester straps and a podiatrist-certified footbed for all-day comfort, burly, non-marking outsoles, and the classic Chaco style that has become a staple at campgrounds and mountain towns. Plus, the shoes have an antimicrobial application for odor control.
We love this long-sleeve shirt for its discreet sun protection (UPF 50+ rating). Thanks to the soft, quick-drying fabric, it still “manages to feel light and breezy,” according to our tester. Plus, the bright plaid colors are casual enough to wear around town as well as on the trail.
This high-neck, open-back dress is one of our favorite adventure dresses. According to our tester (who wears a C-cup), the built-in bra isn’t quite supportive enough for running, but holds up well on casual hikes and urban adventures. Throw a denim button-up over it to make the dress suitable for fall weather or business-casual settings.
We take the Better Sweater almost everywhere because it hits the sweet spot between warmth, comfort, and style. It's made from a polyester knitted fleece that is soft on the skin. Plus, the fabric is bluesign® approved so you can feel good about wearing it.
The Pilchuck is soft, quick-drying, and breathable thanks to its blend of polyester, cotton, and wool. Plus, the shirt's western style and snap closures make it ideal for everyday wear in the office or casual hikes and bike rides.
The Seon Transporter was our favorite indoor climbing pack in 2017 because of its mix of commuter-savvy features. It has a padded laptop sleeve in one compartment, a separate chute for climbing gear, and a ventilated pocket for your climbing shoes (or gym sneakers). We can't get enough of this sleek, multi-purpose pack.
This shacket is part of our gear editor’s go-to fall outfit. With ripstop nylon on one side and flannel on the other, you can wear it as a classic puffy or an insulated flannel. Our editor said she found it “particularly handy on those fickle fall days when I want to wear the Kalaloch as a jacket over a T-shirt.”
We take the Better Sweater almost everywhere because it hits the sweet spot between warmth, comfort, and style. It's made from a polyester knitted fleece that is soft on the skin. Plus, the fabric is bluesign® approved and the sewing is Fair Trade Certified so you can feel good about wearing it.
