If you don't care for those pesky "motors" that they're putting on boats these days, you should check out the Escapade Pedal Boat ($3,500). Its leg-powered, 15-inch two-blade propeller and rotomolded polyethylene hull glides smoothly through any body of water — from shallow canals to the Atlantic. With room for up to three drunkards, the boat sports a protective windshield and high freeboards, built-in bilge pump, collapsible polyester bimini top, and a dry shelf for towels, cameras, and the like.
Kawasaki brings their experience in winning IJSBA championships into the design of their new Jet Ski Ultra 250X ($11,500). The most powerful production personal watercraft made, this Jet Ski gives riders 250 horsepower from its 1,498cc marine engine. Speaking of the engine, it has a direct-drive supercharger and a large capacity intercooler to help you speed down the waterways as you bounce along on the race-developed hull while gripping the five-step adjustable handlebar.
Protein bars usually contain as much sugar as a doughnut and have an ingredient list that requires a doctorate to pronounce. RXBARs are different. With no more than eight ingredients, each bar contains real, whole foods and delivers 12g of quality protein without any added sugar. At the core of every bar is a mixture of egg whites, fruits, and nuts — which they print right on the front of the package — and each of their 12 flavors are gluten-, soy-, and dairy-free. Our favorites are Chocolate Sea Salt, Blueberry, and Peanut Butter, but we recommend starting with the best seller pack, which comes with six of their top selling flavors. Keep a few of these in your gym bag, office drawer, and kitchen pantry for when you need a snack and resist the urge to scarf a candy bar.

Inspired by NASA's X-Plane Project, the Zelos ZX series aims to push boundaries, just like the experimental aircraft. The ZX-8 Limited Edition has Swiss Automatic 7750 movement and even features a titanium dial made from an actual SR-71 Blackbird, the fastest jet in the world. The titanium is cut from an SR-71 engine, and the original finish was left intact, including all marks, scratches, and leftover paint, making each dial unique.

Military style has never looked so cool. The Felt MP Cruiser ($550) is a beast of a bike with features like an aluminum tank frame, wheels built with 12-gauge stainless-steel spokes, fat balloon tires, front and rear racks, a canvas saddle bag, fenders, and a generator-powered headlight. The perfect bike for your personal missions, whether you're patrolling the base or riding to the corner store for a six-pack. [Thanks, Stefan]
