Kalahari Biltong (3-Pack)
Kalahari Biltong

Kalahari Biltong was founded by three endurance athletes wowed by this local treat during a trip to race in South Africa. They describe it as a cross between “dry-aged beef, jerky, and prosciutto.” At 32 grams of protein and zero sugar per 160-calorie serving, it’s something of a superfood.

HydraPak Skyflask 500ml

This collapsible water bottle features a comfy hand strap and is the perfect size for on-the-move hydration.

Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover
Flint and Tinder

This hoodie is a subtle way to say "it's time to retire that ratty old one you've been wearing since college." It'll last a lot longer than that old one too.

Osprey Daylite Waist Pack
Now 45% off

Fanny packs have taken more than their share of abuse over the years, but they’ve stuck around for one inarguable reason: they make it easy to stash a few essentials — say workout gloves, towel, protein powder — till you need them. And this elegant, double-zippered Osprey option is more than up to the task.

Jaybird Vista2

The best headphones you can buy for working out, they have an IP68 rather (instead of IPX7), making them fully dustproof and fully waterproof.

ProBar Bite Organic Energy Bar (12-Pack)

We’re kind of obsessed with ProBar, a Utah-based brand that makes incredible energy and protein bars with surprising flavor. These bites provide quick, healthy calories during extended adventures. The protein-packed meal bars are awesome, too.

Bravo Sierra Active Set
Bravo Sierra

This no-nonsense kit featuring anti-bacterial body wipes, shampoo + body wash + shave gel, deodorant and SPF 30 moisturizing lotion is the perfect addition to any exercise enthusiast’s gym bag.

GU Energy Original Sports Nutrition Energy Gel
GU Energy

GU is the leader in on-the-go energy gels. And this box of electrolyte-loaded 100-calorie packets is a great gift for the endurance athlete.

Perfect Fitness Pull-Up Bar
Perfect Fitness

Those lacking funds or space for a full weight set can get quite a bang for the buck from bodyweight moves. This clever bar hooks under a door frame for all manner of pull-ups and chin-ups — and can also be used for for really deep, chest-expanding pushups.

ShakeSphere Tumbler Protein Shaker Bottle

This seemingly simple tumbler cracked last year's GP100 thanks to an ingenious design. It has no internal edges, which not only cuts down on waste but enables the pureeing of fruit with bit of vigorous shaking. The result is convenient, flavorful protein smoothies on the go with minimal mess.

Spy Optic Flynn 5050

With the weather warming up, bike rides come calling, but unless you're training for Le Tour, why not mix a little style with your substance? The HD+ lens tech in these lightweight frames ensure you'll see as good as you look.

Tempo Studio Starter Package

Our pick for the smart home gym that's best as a personal trainer substitute, Tempo comes with everything he'll need for a workout at home (and then some).
