Senior associate reviews editor Adrienne So considers Garmin’s Forerunner series the best smartwatches for runners in her guide to the best fitness trackers. The Forerunner 245 HR has built-in GPS to track your runs, and the battery will last up to seven days.

Garmin’s relatively new Venu class ousted the long-reigning winner—the Fitbit Versa—as our recommended upper-entry-level fitness tracker in the $200 segment of the market. It scored 8/10 and received a Nerdshala Recommendation award for its rich feature list, including event detection, sleep tracking, and blood oxygen monitoring.

Propella 7-Speed ​​(V4) Electric Bike

The Propella is my favorite budget ebike out of all that I’ve tested at Nerdshala. Components are quality, the bike weighs 37 pounds—which is light for an ebike—and its looks don’t scream “ebike.” Associate Reviews editor Parker Hall awarded it an 8/10 and a Nerdshala Recommendation Award in his review of a similar V3.2 model last year.

Wing Ebike Store

I gave the more expensive Freedom X model a 7/10 in my review for its good looks, stronger-than-specific acceleration, and less 39-pound weight. The Freedom 2 has all those things, but without that much torque sensor and integrated LCD display. They’re both good models, but between the two I recommend you save $200 and go for the Freedom 2.

King, nutcase

The Street is a sharp looking helmet for those who don’t want to look like a weekend racer. Many of Nutcase’s helmets now come with MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact System). This is a liner on the inside of the helmet that allows some rotation to absorb energy and reduce the risk of rotational brain injuries. NS Nutcase Vio also $120 ($30 off), It has 360-degree LED light coverage for those of you who don’t have (or want) to mount a bike headlamp and taillamp.

Arkel has a full range of bags that range from carrying laptops to pannier racks commuter to the grocery shopkeeper, All of these make use of Arkel’s excellent attachment system that keeps the bag from sliding around and moving around during the ride. These bags made in Canada are expensive, so take advantage of this rare sale.

bed Bath and Beyond

Lumbering high on a bonfire is a lot of fun, but finding lots of dry wood takes serious time. Solo stoves require less wood than an open bonfire and burn more completely, and it allows fewer sparks to wander, which is an important consideration if you’re using it in a backyard or a campsite prone to wildfires. are installed. Associate Reviews editor Parker Hall falls in love with the big Yukon model.

The canister stove market may be driven by ease of use, but liquid-fueled white gas stoves such as the Whisperlite offer the most versatility, especially internationally, where isobutane canisters are less available. The Whisperlite is a quieter (but not super quiet) version of MSR’s venerable, reliable camp stove.

Titanium is both a stalwart and, due to its often high price, a punchline in the hiking community. However, for around $50, this deal on MSR’s Titan Kettle brings lightweight cooking tools within the range of slightly cheaper (but heavier) steel. The Titan Kettle is a bit thicker and sturdier than Evernew and Tox’s competitors (also luxurious).

Big Agnes Tent

Big Agnes is one of the big names in lightweight tents, and the company honed in on the perennial favorite with the Copper Spur. Senior reviewer Scott Gilbertson gave it high marks in his guide to the best camping tent. This three-person version weighs in at 3 pounds and 8 ounces, which is far less than a mainstream two-person tent.

Tie up for comfort during a day walk, take a nap between two trees in your backyard, or spend a night outside under the open sky. This two-person nylon hammock only weighs 19 ounces, but it supports snuglin’ ​​up to 400 combined pounds. It’s also a pick in our stress relief gift guide.

Sleeping directly on the ground, even if it’s relatively warm, can take away a lot of your body heat. You almost always want a sleeping pad under your sleeping bag so you don’t feel cold. And besides, rocks and roots are uncomfortable. The NeoLite XAir is one of the most common inflatable pads out there, and should last for years without any abuse.

Peak Design is offering 10 percent off all bags, pouches and tripods; 15 percent off bandages; And up to 30 percent off select other gear.

For warm environments, I favor a loose button-down shirt over a T-shirt because it folds out better and the collar protects the neck. The Canyon’s SPF 50-equivalent fabric protected me on a four-day hike through Big Bend National Park, where 95-degree temperatures in full sun tried (and failed) to fry me. For more ideas, check out our guide to the best everyday sun protection.

The PreCip range has been around for a few decades. Marmot pulled off the design years ago and has only had to tweak it since then, such as the pit zip and drawstring-adjustable hem. Senior associate reviews editor Adrienne Sou gave the PreShip Eco a favorable review in her round-up of the best rain jackets.

backcountry, steep and cheap

Sometimes you don’t need completely new gloves—just a little extra warmth on an especially long day in the cold. These liners slip inside a great pair of gloves to enhance their flavor, and the merino wool stays outrageous even if you get them wet from throwing snowballs.
