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.

Flip out the prongs on the backside of the Fluxmob Bolt, and you have a standard USB wall charger. But what makes the 3.1-ounce device unique is its internal 3,000mAh battery that allows it to juice depleted gadgets on the go, far away from an outlet. It's fast, reliable, and, best of all, prevents you from carrying around so many damn devices. [$60; fluxmob.com]
