Sometimes getting the best shots means getting your camera gear dirty — or worse — wet. Fujifilm has a solution by way of their first ever weather-resistant lens, designed to pair with their X-T1 mirrorless camera and other X-series cameras like the X-E2. The versatile XF 18-135mm is capable of a wide range of focal lengths and rapid autofocusing (maximum of 0.10 seconds) and also uses high-precision gyro sensors for the most advanced image stabilization in the world. $900
M-Series-Wheels-Gear-Patrol Enve M-Series
Enve makes ridiculously nice, ridiculously expensive carbon wheels. The Utah-based manufacturer has just announced their new line of mountain wheelsets in the form of the M-Series, comprised of the M50, M60, M70, and M90. Cross-country riders will want the M50 (made for riders who spend about 50 percent amount of the time descending); the M60 and M70 are ideal for trail riding; and the M90 is stiff and strong for riders who spend the most of their time descending. They’re not cheap, but good wheelsets provide some of the best improvement to your bike. $999+

Availability begins in August, and we suspect it will pair well with your 4K screen and Blu-Ray copy of Gravity. onkyousa.com

There’s nothing more exciting than unboxing new gear. However, if said gear has been packaged in one of those hand shredding, tough to open blister packs, things can get ugly. Belapri’s new Plastic Package Opener promises to cut through blister packs with ease, and the $20 asking price seems worth it if it means avoiding a trip to the emergency room to get stitched up. $20
