This jacket works great for skiing and hiking or for travelling in sub-zero temperature areas. It is lightweight, which makes it easy to layer for the slopes or any hiking trip.

2. Bluetooth Earphones, TaoTronics Bluetooth 4.2 Headphones Stereo Magnetic Earbuds

Getting these to pair with your cell phone is a nice add-on to go to the gym. The magnetic earbuds make them super easy to pack or to clip around the neck and they come with different sizes of rubber to fit your ears.

These seem to be fine if they get a little wet from rain or sweat and they work well for biking and running.

The earphones have three buttons to use. You can answer a call, turn the volume up or down, and play or pause your music.

Tips for this productThe good thing about these earphones is the noise cancellation technology for call conversations or for listening to music.

3. Julbo Men’s Explorer 2.0 Sunglass with Mineral Glass Alti Arc Lens (Category 4)

These are great glasses for skiing, but could work for other outdoor activities like snowshoeing or hiking in the cold. Works really well for extreme weather situations and keeps wind out of your eyes.

Might not work well for someone with a small face.

4. Kindle Voyage E-reader, 6″ High-Resolution Display (300 ppi) with Adaptive Built-in Light, PagePress Sensors, Wi-Fi

The voyage is a great e-reader and makes it easy to carry for travelling. The backlight on the screen works well. You can actually auto dim it if you want to read it in the dark before bed. Also does well on airplanes when the cabin has low lighting.

You’ll be surprised about how light and small it is. However, the screen is the perfect size and you don’t feel like you have to squint to read it.

You can download an app on your iPhone or iPad that will transfer the images straight from your camera to your phone. It makes it very easy to get the pictures off of your camera and ready to share.
