Good morning. Here’s some much-needed good news: for the first time ever, a paralyzed man has regained the use of his arms after receiving stem cell injections into his spinal cord. Just three months after the injections, Kristopher Boesen, who had been paralyzed from the neck down due to a car crash, was using his arms and hands to feed himself, use his phone, hug his family, and so on. Here’s what’s good in gear: an adventure-ready camper, an indigo-dyed scarf, a badass black leather jacket and much more.
Tune in on Facebook Live today at 12 p.m. EST — we’ve got some cool new gear to show you.
And here are some fresh stories to start the day.

Bern Heist Snowsports Helmet
Launched at the SIA snow sports trade show in Denver this week, Bern’s new Heist helmet features the brand’s ZipMold+ and SinkFit Technology designed to keep you safe out on the mountain. In addition, it also features a host of other technologies aimed at reducing the risk of concussion if you do happen to take a fall. Most importantly though, it looks super stylish. – AJ Powell, Associate Staff Writer
