As the snow melts (finally!), our thoughts turn to heading into the great outdoors – and all the great new stuff we’ll need to enjoy it. There's tons of gear coming out in the next few months and we’ve already run in, hiked with, rode on, drove in, listened to and played with most of it. In fact, our team of nearly two-dozen testers has been using (and abusing) all the new offerings to come up with this list of the very best stuff.

Adidas ClimaChill Polo
Consider the Adidas ClimaChill Polo air-conditioning for your time on the court. Aluminum dots on the inside of the shirt conduct and distribute heat, while the titanium fibers woven into the fabric pull moisture away from your body. What does this mean? Even at your sweatiest, the shirt never fails to keep you cool. [$48; adidas.com]
