The Best New Outdoors and Fitness Gear We Discovered Last Month

gear-patrol-speedwagen-650-b-slider-1

Whew! With April in our rearview, we can soundly say that it’s been a month characterized by moisture. Yes, moisture — mainly in the form of rain, but also snow, drizzle, slush and fog. We assumed that if we were wholly preoccupied with the weather patterns, then you probably were too, so we gave you in-depth guides to the year’s best rain jackets and waterproof backpacks, as well a list of the best water bottles around (because we could all stand to be a little more hydrated). We also discovered boatloads of new outdoors and fitness gear this month, and we wanted to make sure you didn’t miss a single item. So here it all is! Give your digits a stretch, and scroll away.
