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.

On a beautiful spring day, drink in hand, a game of horseshoes or bocce is a great way to pass the time. Borrowing from both of those pastimes, Rollors is even more addictive. You basically roll oversize wooden discs toward a color-coded wooden goal, and the player or team closest to the goal is awarded points. Sound simple? It is, but you'll very quickly wonder where the day went. [$40; rollors.com]
