Orion-Gear-Patrol Mission Workshop Orion
Whether you’re mountain biking or walking the dog, your outdoors activities need not be thwarted by rain. The Orion jacket by Mission Workshop is a fully-taped waterproof jacket. It’s a featherweight 370 grams, is made from stretchable fabrics and was built to react to body temperature changes. As your activity level increases, the fabric adjusts to the heat of your body, allowing more heat to escape; it’s a weatherproof jacket you can wear in all seasons. $439

It boils your water and uses the thermal energy to produce 10 watts of power for electronics. You may have to do your business in a hole in the woods, but at least you can play Angry Birds while doing it. $150

best-diesel-motorcycles-gear-patrol-lead-full Smoke and Mirrors: 5 Best Diesel Motorcycles
Diesel engines may just be the perfect fit for motorcycles. They offer bullet-proof reliability, stump-pulling torque and the kind of range even Ted Simon can only dream of. Add to that the fact that refuelling doesn’t involve extended time out of the saddle and it makes you wonder why there aren’t more on the market.
