Durable and versatile, we’ve sung the praises of the SKLZ Sandbag before. But given that spring is just around the corner and you’ll need a good sandbag to complete this month’s workout on Pg. 18, we find it bears repeating as a recommendation. Does everything a dumbbell can do, but provides an extra challenge to your muscle fibers because the weight is constantly shifting inside the bag.
OAKLEY FLAK JACKET XLJ
Not sure what’s better, how well these Oakleys perform, or the fact that they trademarked the material used to make the nose and ear pads, Unobtanium. Nobody tell James Cameron, OK? (Unobtanium is the ridiculously-named stuff they were mining in Avatar.) The Flack Jacket XL offers coverage and a full field of view for larger faces, filter out 100% of UV rays, and are shatter-resistant.
These heavy-duty trail runners from Adidas were designed with all terrains and weather conditions in mind. Thick strips of rubber protrude from the outsole to help you get traction wherever you are. The uppers serve as a lightweight counterbalance, fully breathable as you’d expect a normal running shoe to be. The result is added performance without added weight.
