While "backtrack" and "detour" aren't the most positive words to use when branding a product, the Bushnell Backtrack D-Tour ($100) succeeds anyway. This simple, clip-friendly GPS unit sports a rugged, weather-resistant body, grayscale LCD screen, an internal, rechargeable battery good for 48 hours of data logging, and lets you store up to five locations, with course taken, length in miles and yards, time, latitude, longitude, and other handy metrics to help you recall the exact location of your favorite camping spot, hiking trail, or buried treasure.
Normally when buying a kayak, you have to settle with the maneuverability of a sit-in or the freedom of a sit-on-top. With the Necky Vector 13 Kayak ($900), you can have both. This 13-foot polyethylene craft features a touring seat with backband, a mesh storage pouch, a bottle holder, a quick seal bow hatch with a Cross Lock buckle system, a nylon tank well cover, and an optional rudder system for an extra $200.
