rotation180° Panorama Backpack

The problem with traditional backpacks is that they must be taken off the user’s back in order to access the contents. The solution—world-wide, patented, rotation180° technology, allowing the contents of the backpack to be accessed without taking it off, via an integrated, hidden, belt pack that can be rotated to the front of the body. The rotation180° Panorama backpack has a door flap on the side with a Fidlock magnetic buckle. When the Fidlock magnetic buckle is released, the belt pack can be rotated to the front of the body and opened immediately. The belt pack can be filled with frequently used items such as a camera, GPS devices, binoculars, phones, nature identification books, tablets, food, etc. The backpack has additional room for personal gear such as clothing and the ability to hold a hydration reservoir.

Super 2R All Mountain Bike Helmet

The Bell Super 2R offers comprehensive and adaptable protection for the all-mountain bicycle rider through its game-changing removable chin bar; lower head coverage; and a performance-driven feature that allows the rider to tackle any terrain with confidence. With this advancement of the bicycle’s capabilities comes the need for equipment that can protect the rider for the trails they’re now able to ride. The Super 2R features a removable chin bar so that when a rider is climbing up the mountain, they’re able to have an open-face helmet for maximum cooling and ventilation. When the rider is ready to descend, they are able to mount the chin bar with three, easily attached buckles for the protection of a full-face helmet.

Curator's Choice: Flip Reel by Squiddies

Taking inspiration from the simplicity and fun of the old Cuban Yo-Yo, the Flip Reel by Squiddies™ is a modern take on the ancient art of handline fishing. A handline gets up close and personal with the fish without the expense and struggle of a complicated kit. Simply flip open, attach your tackle and you’re ready to fish in seconds whether off a boat, jetty, kayak—or on foot. When you’re finished, wind the line, secure the hook in the safe storage point and flip closed. Flip Reel by Squiddies™ is safe, easy and fun for both kids and adults. It packs to half its size, making it perfect to stow in the car or boat and small enough to throw in the backpack for a hike.

Nike Free Hyperfeel

The Nike Free Hyperfeel moves intuitively with the foot, delivering a natural motion sensation for the athlete. The design mimics the workings of the human foot: Lunarlon foam replicates cushioned pads under the foot; the outsole protects like hardened skin on the sole; and dynamic Nike Flywire flexes and contracts, inspired by ligaments.
