Are You Pooping All Wrong? Enter the Squatty Potty!

One company claims that by changing the way you sit on the toilet, you could remove 20 extra pounds of poop inside you. So we tested their product to see if that’s true—or if it's a load of crap<p>I have managed to avoid yoga for most of my adult life. But I’ve taken a sudden interest in it …

Sierra Designs Backcountry Bed 800 Sleeping Bag

It’s hard to reimagine the sleeping bag, which is why we’re so impressed with the new Backcountry Bed. Instead of the ubiquitous zippered, mummy-shaped design, the Backcountry Bed has a large and zipperless oval-shaped opening with an integrated comforter. It’s a novel and cool idea, especially if …

Kelty PK 50 Backpack

Zipperless outdoor gear is (almost) a trend at the show this year. Sierra Designs unveiled a new sleeping bag without interlocking teeth. (It uses an integrated comforter to seal up; we liked it so much we gave it an award, too.)<p>And Kelty has pulled off a potentially even niftier trick with the PK …

Smith Forefront Helmet

It’s tough to rethink and re-energize the bike helmet, which is, let’s face it, a huge, eyesore of a mushroom cloud-shaped seat belt for your head, and yet we’re thrilled about Smith’s new all-mountain lid. The Forefront is as lightweight and airy as many XC helmets, thanks to a highly breathable …

Millet Matrix 30 MBS

The Neoteric’s fancy fabric— Polartec’s NeoShell—might be the ideal material for a resort ski jacket. It’s breathable, quiet, stretchy, and totally waterproof. And Eddie Bauer employs it perfectly: the cut is just roomy enough for layering and freedom of movement, with a long hem that kept us dry …

Outdoor Research Halogen Jacket

The Halogen can’t do it all, but it does so much so well that it rates as one of the most versatile winter jackets we’ve ever tested. The fit is athletic but comfortable, and the combination of PrimaLoft insulation in the front, back, and upper arms with breathable stretch side panels strikes the …

Patagonia Encapsil Down Belay Parka

You see strange things when you head up R&D at Patagonia. Like goose down floating in illuminated tubes. You go to strange places. Like secret labs inside white-washed corporations in Austin, Texas.<p>For five years, Randy Harward was on a quest to build the "best down parka ever made." Those are …

Giro Combyn

The problem with most bike and ski helmets is that they’re one-hit wonders. After one solid whack, the impact-dampening foam they're built with is left fractured and ineffective. Enter Giro's Combyn. The helmet features a flexible soft-shell technology that's designed to take multiple hits. To pull …

3D-printed 'Cortex' cast concept puts a modern spin on bone fracture treatment

To anyone that's ever broken a bone, the negatives of traditional plaster casts are familiar: they're cumbersome, heavy, and can get rather smelly.
