Whether you're high in the mountains or just chillin' by the lake, The North Face Docking Station ($430) makes for a fine base camp. The 97 sq. ft. main component offers room for six, with roll up walls, a perimeter floor and color-coding for easy setup, durable steel stakes, and an included duffel-style storage sack. Should your group grow larger as your stay continues, simply add on an available two- or four-person dock to turn your modest camp into a rockin' retreat.
We love to focus on products that are both functional and stylish, but sometimes those two traits really are mutually exclusive. Take, for instance, the Patagonia Tumpline ($20). This unique accessory is meant to suspend some or all of a pack's load on the top of your head instead of your shoulders and hips, making your hikes that much more enjoyable. Which is a good thing, because no matter the tumpline's ancient lineage, you'll still look like a jackass when wearing one.
Love it or hate it, there's one thing about Major League Baseball we can all agree on: their groundskeeping is spectacular. The Scotts MLB Authentic Collection ($22/bag) aims to bring the lush grass of America's favorite ballparks to your own lawn, by providing you with actual grass seed varieties used at venues like Wringley Field, Fenway Park, and Great American Ball Park. For the sake of your neighbors, don't go overboard though — no one wants to see you spitting sunflower seeds out of a front yard dugout/bunker.
