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.

CT Scuderia Corsa
As its top-mounted push buttons suggest, the CT Scuderia Corsa is inspired by a stopwatch – specifically those used by Italian motorcycle racers of the Fifties and Sixties. Those buttons control the timepiece's quartz chronograph and, along with its prominent dial markings, set it apart from today's swarms of vintage-inspired minimalist watches. [$1,295; ctscuderia.com]
