The Best Men’s Summer Workout Gear of 2017
Take your gym sessions seriously.
Rhone Sequoia Air Pullover ($98)
This versatile quarter-zip should be in every closet, not just for its slim-fitting design but also for the wicking Polartec fabric, which keeps you dry and comfortable.
Tracksmith Mission Top Loader Duffel ($168)
Modeled after military packs, this canvas bag is tough, and its 50liter capacity swallows multiple outfits. The lined leather bottom serves as a shoe compartment to quarantine ripe footwear.
New Balance 99 Trainer shoes ($80)
Lightweight and minimalist, the 99 Trainer has a simple mesh upper that allows your feet to breathe and won’t cause hot spots or blisters. The thin but springy midsole soaks up hard landings yet still helps you pop during box jumps.
Stance Mission One Socks ($16)
Sure, they have a mesh weave and extra heel padding. But the Mission One’s crew length and flashy prints add a bit of pizzazz, too.
Lululemon Intent Pants ($108)
Baggy sweats are the bane of serious gym-goers. These pants are cut trim for an athletic look, and the sweat-wicking, four-way stretch fabric won’t bind, breathes well, and has a soft, cotton-like feel.
Travis Mathew Chambers Shorts ($75)
The nine-inch inseam on the Chambers is just long enough to cover your thighs without inhibiting your form when getting low for squats. Four-way stretch helps with maneuverability, and side vents prevent sweat, keeping everything cool and airy.
RYU Vapor Tech Shirt ($57)
Heathered fabric and a tailored fit help this tee feel great. The nylon-spandex material is thick, but underarm gussets and flatlock seams reduce bulk and chafing.
Reebok Dynamax Medicine Ball ($100)
This ball’s leather exterior is no softie. Reinforced double stitching means it’ll stand up to years of wall tosses.
