Today in Gear: April 2, 2014

Today in Gear we examine Ray-Ban’s new customizable remix program, Nike Soccer’s revised away kit for team U.S.A., the return of the Omega Seamaster 300, your new guide to alpine training and Bluelounge’s key-sized charging accessory for Android.



Bluelounge Kii Micro-USB
