These hand-blown tumblers feature a tiny rendering of Yosemite’s Half Dome. Whiskey Peaks also has versions of these glasses for Everest, Mount Fuji, Denali, and other iconic peaks. The set of two makes a classy addition to any home bar.
5 Running Accessories Under $50 We Love
For those who need to run with a phone, finding an accessible option can be hard: squeezing your phone into a plastic sleeve is a pain, and then it’s stuck on your arm, so you can’t actually see it. LifeProof’s Armband fixes that with a click-on/click-off phone attachment that eschews the plastic sleeve altogether, but still fits securely on your arm.
The Vantage Point is a full mesh trucker that has more structure than your typical running hat, but it’s still built with crushable materials, so you can pack it away without ruining it. It dries fast and fits any head thanks to a snapback fit that has an extra elastic adjustment, but we really love the slots on the side of the hat, which allow you secure the arms of your sunglasses.
The two-liter Multipass can be worn as a shoulder sling, but we like it better as a waist pack. The belt wraps around low on the hip bones, so it doesn’t squeeze your stomach, and the bounce is so minimal that we forget we’re wearing it. The bag has enough space for a phone, mask, wallet, and water, but the only detail missing is an external bottle holder—we have to unzip the bag to get a drink.
These glasses aren’t techy—they have polarized lenses and a tight, secure fit that we love—but they are super fun, especially if you customize them on Knockaround’s website by picking the frames, lens color, and arm design. You can mix and match options until you come up with a perfect pair of shades that’s unique to you.
After trying out a handful of running masks, tester Graham Averill thinks Buff’s Filter is the most comfortable. The poly-elastane build is super light, fits tight against his face without feeling claustrophobic, and houses replaceable filters that block 98 percent of airborne particles. Bonus: the mask offers UPF 50 protection and dries fast enough to wear for multiple sessions.
The Mega Mat Duo is the most comfortable mattress we’ve used for car camping, hands down. It’s a 10-centimeter-thick air pad with memory foam insulation. It’s pricey, but it’s the closest we’ve come to feeling like we were in our bed at home while camping.
A climbing staple and one of our favorite pieces of gear in our 2019 Summer Buyer’s Guide, the Petzl GriGri is an excellent addition to anyone’s kit. The latest version of this assisted braking belay device accommodates a wide range of rope widths.
This lightweight blanket makes any car camping trip better, plain and simple. “A durable waterproof bottom puts up with wet grass or rocky dirt, and the flannel top is comfy to sit on and easy to clean,” wrote our tester Jakob Schiller.
The 900-denier ripstop polyester body is water-resistant and boasts a padded bottom panel for added structure. Daisy chains make lashing a breeze, the shoulder straps are comfy and removable, and there are side-grab handles for extra convenience. We dig the U-shaped lid, which makes for quick packing, and the two mesh pockets on the lid for storing small items.
This is one of our go-to bags for summer surf trips, shoulder-season backpacking trips, and overnight forays into the mountains. It’s light and compact enough for taking out on the trail, yet still comfy enough for casual car-camping adventures—and it comes at a price that won’t destroy your budget.
This toasty 650-fill puffy is reviews editor Jeremy Rellosa’s go-to for winter crag days: the two-way zipper allows you flare out the hem over a harness for an easy belay. We prefer the Colter for less aerobic outings, but if you’re working up a sweat, it has pit zips for dumping heat. Bonus: the brushed tricot in the pockets and interior collar provide a boost of comfort in frigid temps.
Like the LifeStraw, MSR’s TrailShot lets you drink straight from the source, but it’s also good for filling a water bottle. Drop the long straw in the stream and squeeze the hand pump to get the magic started. It works fast, treating a liter of water in 30 seconds.
In our long-term test of women’s ski pants, we named these the best all-around option. “The Environ gives you space to layer but is streamlined enough to avoid bagginess, which meant it was equally at home on uphill missions near Jackson and in-bounds at Colorado’s Copper Mountain,” wrote contributor Crystal Sagan.
We included these bibs in our roundup of women’s bibs that make pee breaks easy. “For my lean and straight body type, the waterproof Environ was one of the more flattering bibs I tried,” wrote tester Anna Callaghan. “The bib made me feel tucked in without being restrictive (belt loops add the ability to fine-tune your fit).”
