Good morning and happy Friday. It is, apparently, Waffle Day. Which is a thing. We’re guessing it’s the one day of the year when you don’t have to feel bad taking all that extra time to fill every…single…square…with..syrup. After you’ve made sure your hands are sticky with maple sugar, here’s what’s good in gear: hiking boots that’ll let your feet breathe in the heat, a Merino-and-stretch tee for every part of your day, Roku-ready TVs and much more.

Swift Running Short by Rhone

TIG-gear-patrol-sponsor-rhone-1

Meet the last active short you’ll ever need. Intended as multi-sport apparel, the Swift features two very important details to keep you moving and comfortable. First, strategically placed mesh venting keeps your important regions breathing and cool. Second, inside is an antimicrobial boxer-brief liner that’s specially engineered to mitigate odor. Zipper pockets, welded seams and reflective bits add to the overall construction, which is a polyester-Spandex blend for maximum comfort. Tackle the gym, the outdoors, the pitch — if you can decide what to do first.
