Football season is almost over for high schoolers, but if you happen to be on a college, pro, or just really hardcore amateur team, you should consider donning the Schutt Air XP Football Helmet ($200). Sporting a traditional spherical shape, the Air XP was designed specifcally to ward off concussions, outperforming the Xenith X1 and top Riddell hats thanks to its TPU cushioning and Surefit air liner. DeSean Jackson's trusting it to protect his brains for the rest of the season, so why aren't you?
Ski trail smartphone access is great and all, but it's a little hard to look at Google Maps when you're flying down the hillside. The Zeal Transcend GPS Goggle ($400-$500) gets around this problem by mounting a micro LCD display right inside the goggles. In addition to showing real-time GPS data, the screen can also offer feedback like speed, latitude/longitude, altitude, vertical distance travelled, total distance travelled, the temperature, and the time, all on a screen that appears to hang roughly six feet in front of you. Glove-friendly buttons and either a polarized or polarized and photochromic lens round out this alpine offering.
Keep your game sharp during the off months with the Indoor Golf Trainer ($800). Consisting of a 1 1/2" tubular aluminum frame and a hand-woven heavyweight nylon net, the Trainer sets up and dismantles in less than five minutes thanks to a push-button locking system, gently rolls hit balls back to you thanks to the unique curve of the net, keeps your floor in good shape with foam-backed nylon turf, and keeps things in place thanks to included sandbags. Also included are two side barriers, which will hopefully keep you from destroying your home's interior with your nasty slice.
