One of the hardest things for working out for me, especially when playing running or even playing Basketball is protecting my Achilles and ankles from eventually hurting. I’ve looked high and low for solutions, yet the best that I have found are Lasso’s Compression Socks.
I’m not a huge fan of socks if I don’t have to wear them, especially with low-cut shoes like Vans or TOMS. However, I do not enjoy smelly feet or athlete’s foot so I tend to wear no-show socks a lot. There are many brands that make them, but not all are created equally. And then there’s DeadSoxy.
Showers Pass has the whole family equipped for all seasons and every weather condition. They were nice enough to send my wife and me some outerwear to try out now that Fall is upon us, the Men’s Trailhead Bamboo-Merino Hoodie and the Women’s Rogue Hoodie. Both demonstrate the high quality that Showers Pass has become known for.
It’s pretty common to get an Apple Watch and immediately wish that it had a more fashionable band. What’s not so common is to have a major jewelry manufacturer say, “Don’t worry; I’ve got you,” but that’s exactly what Lagos has done. Lagos Smart Caviar is a collection of precious metal and diamond bands for your Apple Watch.
Once, we had Withings, makers of fab health tracking devices and Health Mate, my favorite weight and fitness tracking app. Withings was acquired by Nokia in 2016, but four months ago the original co-founder, Eric Carreel, bought Withings back from Nokia. So now there is a new Withings logo and we get a new product, the Withings Steel HR Sport.
I’m not one to spend a lot on clothes. When I need new suits, I wait for a sale at Joseph A. Bank. When I need new casual clothes, I wait for a sale at the Gap. But, after getting the $158 Passage Pant from Olivers Apparel, I was reminded that you often get what you pay for!
Believe it or not, there are still plenty of people who wear regular wristwatches. A good watch is a fashion statement that helps reflect your style in addition to handily telling the time. The Awake Watch looks to add yet another dimension to that, with watches made from recycled materials to keep plastics out of the ocean.
When you hear the phrase “douche bag”, your mind might automatically conjure up the slang definition of “an obnoxious, offensive, or disgusting person.” Set that aside for now, okay? For this review, Douchebags is a Norwegian brand of smarter travel gear, and the Douchebags Base 15L Daypack is one of the nicest and most stylish backpacks I’ve yet tried.
With Summer in full swing, it’s time to purchase the only swimsuit you’ll need this year: Olivers Zuma Trunk. Made with stretchy, quick drying fabric, these swim trunks are versatile enough to go from running, to beach volleyball, to a midnight swim. Designed and made in Los Angeles, these are the most comfortable swim trunks you’ll ever wear.
Father’s Day is rushing upon us quickly, and it’s time to think about what token appreciation you’re going to present to the guy who’s always been there for you. Don’t bother with another tie or yet another socket set — give him what he really wants: useful tech!
The Flash TV show on the CW is a mixed bag. It’s not the best-written show, but it transcends script weakness through the sheer charm and chemistry of the cast. The One61 Flash Smartwatch is taking notes from the TV show; it has a lot of flaws, but it’s just so darn cute it almost balances out.
There are so many minimalist wallets from which to choose that it can be challenging to find the right one. Ridge Wallets are worth a closer look. They are about as minimalist as you will find yet they offer a host of great features that will make it easy to carry, and access, your cards and cash.
I have not worn a wedding band for many years. Not because I am avoiding the appearance of being married, but because of my outdoor lifestyle. My poor ring has been through a lot in the last 20 years, and I finally just quit wearing it. For around $40, I purchased a Qalo ring; I’m not disappointed in the least.
If you’re on the lookout for a fresh pair of shades, Sunski may be the Holy Grail at the end of your quest. They’ve got loads of styles and color combinations, along with polarized lenses and a lifetime warranty. You can get your hands on these fashionable yet extremely lightweight frames starting at $48.
Raina loves the Distil Union Wally Agent wallet I reviewed some time ago. I love my Distil Union Wally Bifold; I reviewed the first release and then reviewed the updated version. Now the company has released a third edition of the Wally Bifold. It’s better and more secure than ever.
What does your watch do? Notify you of emails? Buzz when you get a phone call? Track your steps? All that is great, but sometimes you just need a watch with more practical features. The kind that let you enjoy life beyond being tethered to a smartphone … that’s where the Casio Pro Trek comes in.
The most common fitness trackers are worn on the wrist — either as a watch replacement or as a bracelet. But what if you like the watch you already own, or what if a bracelet doesn’t fit in with your style aesthetic? What if you still want to track your steps, sleep, and heart rate? You need a Motiv Ring.
Some weeks ago Tekkima, a new clothing company, reached out to see if we wanted to take a look at one of their jackets. “Why not?” I said. A few days later, the Tekkima Overland arrived. I was amazed by how light it was. Then I put it on and was even more amazed how warm and comfortable it is.
When I first began in the rabbinate, I wore a suit every day. That meant six and sometimes seven days a week were spent in a dress shirt, tie and suit. Those days are long gone, but I still wear a suit a few days a week. That’s where the Collar Stay Punch Raina got me for Hannukah comes in.
When I think of Casio watches, I think of the old school digital watches. But their catalog of timepieces goes much deeper, and their iconic G-Shocks are far more than just what you see in department store displays.
Among the many headphones and wireless speakers that we saw at Monster’s CES booth, was a small display with three pairs of truly wireless in-ear headphones. They were all similar in style, but one set was aimed towards work-outs. The other two sets were what we were eyeing, though; one look at the Monster Airlink Elements, and we were smitten.
