The Vollebak Black Squid Jacket Is Back

We’ve covered the Vollebak Black Squid Jacket previously, but even before that was published, the garment had sold out just like that. Thankfully, Vollebak has decided to reissue the phenomenally popular jacket.

That’s right. The company is reissuing its highly reflective, iridescent, waterproof, and windproof jacket. Just for perspective on how quickly they sold out: in just three days after first being released, Vollebak completely ran out of stock.

The jacket draws inspiration from its namesake animal. The Black Squid Jacket comes embedded with over two million microscopic glass spheres. In low light, the fabric shows mostly black with tiny splashes. But step into the daylight and you’ll see it explode into a mesmerizing maelstrom of colors and hues.

Its iridescence is a huge part of its appeal. But to be fair, the jacket itself features excellent construction, proof of Vollebak’s expert craftsmanship. The silhouette cuts the sharp angles into a more streamlined profile. It comes topped with geometric cutouts for a slight dollop of flair You’d think that would make it far too flamboyant, but the result is far from being such. It’s a sophisticated jacket oozing with style.

You might think Vollebak chose to design it this way just for show. But in fact, it’s got a more practical purpose. Here’s Steve Tidball, Vollebak’s founder:

“If you get lost on a mountain at night, it is hard to find you. If a search light goes over this jacket, it would look like a star on the mountain. You would be very visible, very quickly.”

Slip On The On Cloud Edge Moonlight For Interstellar Running Performance

Honestly, we are loving the steady influx of space-themed products this month. It’s a good guess that NASA is responsible for these renewed interested regarding outer space. For those unaware, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is highlighting the golden jubilee of the first lunar landing. There is a boatload of events that are paying homage to the success of the Apollo 11 mission. Likewise, merchandise tie-ins are in full swing. A Swiss sports apparel brand joins the fun with the On Cloud Edge Moonlight.

You’ll agree that the name is a dead giveaway of the footwear’s intended tribute. Don’t bother looking for it on the outer surfaces of the shoe, because there’s something else hiding in plain sight. Barely noticeable in brightly-lit environments are the stellar patterns within the fabric of the upper. Additionally, the tongue, laces, midsole, and outsole, are getting a similar treatment. The magic happens when light hits the shoe in darkness as the reflective materials mimic the stunning beauty of a starlit night sky.

The brand is calling the colorway of this limited edition pair of kicks Iris/Dust and it looks awesome. As with any running shoe, ventilation is essential, which is why the outer mesh material of the upper is breathable. To keep water from seeping into the shoe, there are plastic coatings on the toe cap. Remember what we pointed out earlier,

The On Cloud Edge Moonlight features a nod to lunar landings via a print of the moon’s surface on the sock liner. Finally, the CloudTec outsoles provide superior cushioning and superior traction. This shoe has every right to boast about its interstellar pedigree thanks to its partnership with PTScientists – a space and lunar research startup in Berlin.

The Joyride Run Flyknit Are Running Shoes For People Who Hate Running

Nike unveils its newest proprietary cushioning system, called Joyride. Like most of its previous systems, this new variant is lightweight, offers a high level of energy return. But what makes it unique is that it boasts thousands of little TPE beads, placed strategically in areas where the foot lands when in motion.

This new system has been years in the making, according to Nike. The company drew inspiration from a common observation that runners preferred walking or running on softer ground over concrete paths in cities.

“We took that insight and married it with this notion of sand,” says Nike executive Barton. “‘[in essence] that sensation of taking your shoes and socks off at the beach, where you first step onto it and it conforms to your toes and your feet.”

In effect, wearing the Joyride Run Flyknit shoes is like stepping on bubbles, but we’ve yet to test how true that is. On paper, the technology seems pretty impressive. Those TPE beds can bend and flex in all directions, which explains why Nike calls this system multi-dimensional displacement. In effect, it means each wearer can enjoy a personalized experience.

The system will make a debut via a new pair of kicks called the Joyride Run Flyknit. Unfortunately, it will be handed off only to members on July 25. Don’t fret, though — the general public can purchase a pair come August 15. It will cost $180. More Joyride variants will come out through to September.

Polar Ignite Makes Fitness Tracking Simple

The smartwatch space has been rather stale in several years past, with only Apple seemingly taking the reins. But a new challenger would very much like to change the way things are. Enter the Polar Ignite fitness watch.

Just announced, Polar’s new tracker is a mid-range GPS sports watch that bundles some of the technology from its Vantage lines with improvements in sleep tracking, overnight recovery insights, and more.

The new Polar Ignite is the watchmaker’s thinnest and lightest entry yet, which is sure to please customers who don’t want their wrist watches too bulky. On a single charge, the watch lasts up to five days, which is neither impressive nor too atrocious. It’s the sweet spot, and for $229 you get your money’s worth.

New features include Sleep Plus Stages, Nightly Recharge, FitSpark, and Serene. It also lets you track data in more than 100 sports. It comes with a so-called Precision Prime advanced optical heart rate monitoring technology. With three sensor types, this watch should provide you with super accurate and reliable heart data.

We’re not sure if this is really going to hold a candle to the Apple Watch, marketing-wise. It’s certainly brimming with heaps of functionality, but Apple’s strength lies in its ability to market luxury, ease of use, and its signature “it just works” ethos.

The Polar Ignite is available now in white, yellow, and black band choices. Additional bands, if you want to get them, cost $25 apiece. If you don’t have an Apple Watch yet or aren’t really a fan of Apple’s approach to fitness, this is worth considering.

Adidas Pulseboost HD

If you’re into running quite a bit, you’ve probably heard of the Pulseboost already, Nike’s line of excellent running shoes. The shoes have received enormous praise for their high level of comfort. And they’re also pretty responsive, what with the sock-like Adapt Knit upper and Adaptive Traxion outsole.

Suffice it to say they’re the perfect pair for both those who just decided to get into running or have run aplenty and seek good, reliable kicks. The Adidas Pulseboost HD provide plenty of support and grip, ensuring optimum movement and speed, regardless of what surface you chose to grind them on.

Thankfully, Adidas has just made the kicks a little bit better. The Pulseboost HD shoes come with a brand-new midsole that adds another layer of stability to the already impressively spec’d kicks. HD, here, means “high density. The Pulseboost tech this time hovers closer the the ground, ensuring a refined mix of balance and springiness. In effect, that gives you not only increased efficiency, but also comfort and ergonomics.

You can buy the Adidas Pulseboost HD right now; they became available back in July 13. Like the original Pulseboost, though, it’s going to cost you a bit. The kicks are $140, which is a tad bit on the pricey side but is not surprising of Adidas. Other colorways just became available now. Perhaps if the price didn’t sway you then, these new paints will.

Project Angel Honda Grom By Industrial Moto

Normally, cruising on a motorbike for pleasure and fun is a solo experience unless somebody else is sitting behind you. Unlike the one driving, the passenger usually is getting the short end of the stick when it comes to enjoyment. Hence, a custom project aims to correct that oversight by outfitting the stock bike with an awesome add-on. The Project Angel Honda Grom from Industrial Moto aims to share all of the good stuff with a passenger for a noble cause.

This is a special build courtesy of the good folks from Industrial Moto in addition to a Gofundme crowdfunding drive. This is to help out a kindhearted soul by the name of Chris (a former US Marine), who wanted to do something extraordinary for a member of his family. As it turns out, his brother Nick is suffering from Angelman syndrome, which affects his range of movement. It appears that the motorcycle blogger wants to share his passion with his sibling.

Chris reveals that he really loves the original Project GUS Honda Grom that was unveiled earlier this year. The donor bike is a 2018 MSX125 Grom that comes with a utility sidecar for people to haul stuff around. Moreover, it features an all-terrain configuration that lets you go almost anywhere you want. On the other hand, the Project Angel Honda Grom version is fitted with a unique sidecar setup. This version will allow Nick to safely join Chris for a ride. So far, this seems to be a one-off project only, but those interested can still contact Industrial Moto regarding the original model.

Nike Metcon 5

Wearing the right footwear for various activities can definitely make a difference. Manufacturers closely study what athletes need when designing a shoe for certain sports to deliver performance and comfort. With that in mind, it’s not often that we find an all-around model that can adapt to almost everything. Yet, the Nike Metcon 5 proves that it can handle any challenge that comes your way. In other words, CrossFit enthusiasts are going to love what it offers.

As indicated by the number, the Metcon 5 is the fifth-generation model of the series. The original made its debut in 2015 with succeeding iterations getting significant upgrades each time. We can safely say that it might be the best and most versatile footwear for all kinds of fitness routines.

Nike wants consumers to know that it will meet high expectations. Therefore, that company is subjecting these kicks to extensive testing from the very best.

CrossFit superstars Lauren Fisher and Mat Fraser took the shoes through a rigorous menu of workouts. After running the gauntlet, it seems that the new version is passing with flying colors. Just like most modern footwear, there is ample amount of cutting-edge technology behind its performance.

Taking the haptic system of its predecessor, the Nike Metcon 5 adds a few tweaks of its own. These include, additional cushioning on the tongue, wider heels, a Nike Hyperlift insert, and so much more. The brand does not want to completely rewrite the recipe lest it becomes too unfamiliar for long-time users.

Adidas Terrex Agravic Speed Plus

When it comes to technical releases, Adidas is killing it. Its latest, the Adidas Terrex Agravic Speed Plus, is no exception. Combining sharp aesthetics with topnotch utilitarian sensibilities, this new pair of kicks proves Adidas is hell-bent on innovating its technical prowess even further.

The shoes feature all-day versatility, which is to say they’re perfect as your spring or summer fair. That’s really no surprise given this is Adidas we’re talking about — the brand, after all, is synonymous with quality. Although summer’s almost ending, there’s still plenty to gush about here.

Take the street-to-trail profile of the kicks, for example. Not only do you get a shock-absorbing EVA midsole, which makes them ideal for gallivanting around the city, the kicks also have abrasion-resistant upper reinforcements. In other words, Adidas combined durability and comfort and gave it to us in one neat package.

The rubber outsole gets a tough tread, which is a nice touch on top of impressive flourishes found here. That means these are great for hiking trips, too. Though we’d err on the side of actual hiking footwear if you’re planning any backcountry endeavor.

The colorway is red and black, which some people will love and some will hate. That’s fine. This is no emblem of streetwear fashion, after all. That’s not to say, however, that they aren’t stylish. They are. But in a way that prioritizes slickness over style. If you’re not that patient about finding the perfect sneakers and just want a pair that’ll last for a good long while, get this. The Adidas Terrex Agravic Speed Plus is one of the most reliable pairs of kicks you’ll ever purchase.

Cycloc Solo

On the prowl for a smart yet elegant solution to storing your bike indoors? Look no further than the Cycloc Solo. At first glance, it looks like a mere plaything that’s too flimsy to be able to prop up an entire bike.

The Cyclo Solo is a horizontal or vertical bike storage ideal for home, office, or even retail display. The thing boasts three-point wall fixing and there’s an insert panel that hides fixings. You can hang any bike on it, too. There’s an included spacer to accommodate wide bars. You can also rotate it to accommodate various frame angles. There are rubber contact points to keep scratches at bay, and there’s an inbuilt facility to keep the bike locked in place.

Get it in a range of seven vibrant colors, whatever catches your aesthetic drift. And not only does it let you hang your bike, it’s also got a designated space for accessories.

The best-designed products are of course the simple ones. Although here at Men’s Gear we appreciate when artists push the envelope and go to town when it comes to experimentation, we’re suckers for well-built, simple solutions to complex problems.

The Cycloc Solo is one such product, doing away with the bells and whistles to give us a clever, bare-bones, straightforward answer to all our biking storage problems. Cycloc’s simplicity is its strongest merit, and the company has won numerous awards for its products that strike the perfect balance between form and function. If you’re having trouble storing your bike at home, this is a must-have.

The device retains a circular, minimal design much like its predecessor. It mounts in the center of the handlebars and displays a ring of colored lights to provide turn-by-turn signals. These signals guide the rider toward their destination. The most significant addition is a 1.5-inch OLED display at the center, which displaying all kinds of info.

Nike Zoom And Off-White Unveil Terra Kiger 5 For Stylish Athletes

Frequent Nike collaborator Virgil Abloh is at it again with these new Terra Kiger 5 colorways, of the Nike Zoom and Off-White outfits.

The entire collection, dubbed Athlete in Progress, salutes the unbreakable confidence held by runners. In addition, they take the enduring, impassioned power of marathon runners and form into a silhouette that balances performance and post-run aesthetics.

You’ll find an array of track-oriented running spikes on the bottom of the shoe’s Zoom sole. They make the pair perfect for on and off-road adventures. There are technical lacing anchors here, too. Plus a lightweight upper that provides cloud-like support to make sure you’re unburdened while hightailing across the field.

“I started talking with Nike about this women’s running project last summer and at the time, I was very much inspired by the aesthetic and style of track and field athletes,” said Abloh. “As a result, I invited some of Nike’s elite track and field champions to participate in my SS19 Off-White runway show as the natural forerunner to developing and showcasing the collection.”

If you’re big on Off-White branding, you’re not going to like the detailing work on these kicks. They appear a bit on the lace-tag, secured atop the shoe’s specifically developed tongue. However, this is merely a minor blemish on an otherwise excellent pair of shoes, to be sure. And you’ll be focusing on running, anyway, to care much about that.

Nike is releasing three Terra Kiger 5 colorways. One’s a White, Metallic Silver, Sail, and Safety Orange combo. Another’s an Electric Green, Metallic Silver, and Sail combo. The final one’s a Black, Metallic Silver, White, and Pink Blast combo. The kicks come out June 27.

The Adidas Futurecraft Loop Is A Fully-Recyclable Running Shoe

The sad fact remains that a lot of people still find the concept of recycling foreign. A large number of countries struggle to control the growing amount of waste that ends up in landfills. That’s why it’s great to see some companies take the initiative to create products that source recyclable materials. We recently featured a Bluetooth speaker with a shell made out of plastic bags. There’s also a high-end wristwatch that reuses PET for its strap. The possibilities are practically endless and that’s why the Adidas Futurecraft Loop is another brilliant step in the right direction.

Our biggest challenge is coming up with new ways to repurpose non-biodegradable trash. Normally, these are either buried, burned, or just end in landfills or the bodies of water. The German sportswear company is introducing its first footwear that uses fully-recyclable materials in its construction. Moreover, the Futurcraft Loop is a running shoe, which will all know will eventually wear out from all the abuse. Hence, its an impressive solution to reduce waste every component of the shoe can be reused.

According to Adidas, all of the different parts of the shoe are made of TPU. Each component just undergoes a unique manufacturing method to make it rigid or flexible. Moreover, it’s surprising to discover the Adidas Futurecraft Loop does not use any type of glue. Instead, it undergoes a special heating process that bonds everything together. For its initial rollout, the company is planning to produce 200 examples only. All of the prototypes will be handed out to runners to get feedback regarding its performance. We might see it eventually hit retailers sometime in 2021.

Puma x Porsche Design HYBRID evoKNIT

Now that its partnership with Adidas is no longer in effect, Porsche design has is collaborating with Puma for high-end footwear. The latest offering takes its automotive influences and channels them into awesome kicks.. The Puma x Porsche Design HYBRID evoKNIT is a men’s running shoe that would look great with a casual getup. With these on your feet, you have the carmaker’s racing technology behind every stride. The brand even promises that users will get superior running performance, but that’s kind of subjective in our opinion. It’s currently available in one colorway, b

Nevertheless, you can’t deny that a pair of these look awesome. Just like the name implies, the shoe’s upper is fully knitted instead of using a polyester like other models. Breathable inserts provide just enough ventilation to keep your feet cool. The best way to describe it is like wearing a snug pair of socks, but with more support and traction.

Meanwhile, the soles make use of Puma’s proprietary NRGY beads for optimum cushioning. Additionally, the IGNIT foam is a lightweight component that enhances energy return from each stride. Overall, both technologies should deliver first-rate shock absorption for users of the Puma X Porsche Design HYBRID evoKNIT. Other materials used in its construction include leather, nylon, lycra, and polyester. The combination should make it quite comfortable to wear during on your run or maybe a leisurely walk. This makes us look forward to other future models from this collaboration. The shoes are now available and retail for $200 a pair.

Rapha Cycling Jacket

Rapha is selling new gear. It’s called the Pro Team Lightweight Shadow jacket (what a mouthful!) and if you’re big on cycling, you might want to take a long.

This isn’t the first time we’re seeing this sleek fitness apparel. We saw at this year’s Liege-Bastogne-Liege (also La Doyenne) with EF Education First. They of course had sufficient times to test the jacket during Belgium’s irate weather along the 256-kilometer track.

Rapha says it manufactures this jacket using a durable water repellent treatment, like with its previous Shadow jacket. This time, though, it’s got a new fabric that’s lighter and stronger that its aged sibling.

The company claims that its jacket is capable of “warding off biting wind and keeping the rider dry in all but the most concerted of downpours, while also regulating body temperature.” We’ll have to test it first, of course, but that sounds pretty impressive.

The fabric also features an element of mechanical stretch, wrapping around the rider’s body to create a tight “race” fit. Elasticated closures dot the cuffs and the hem, which hold the jacket in place. At the same time, it allows it to trim the bulk down to a minimum. That’s great news if you want to stuff your jacket into a jersey pocket.

You can get it in Dark Navy, Green Grey, and Yellow. It’s a tad bit expensive at £200. But if you have plans to hop onboard the La Doyenne next year, the race demands no less.

Lifefactory is another favorite of ours for obvious reasons. These glass bottles are made from high-quality glass, plastic, and silicone making them healthy and durable at the same time.

Apart from the fact that there are fourteen colors to choose from, there are also three different sizes. The one we chose for our list is 22 ounces which we think is the perfect middle ground for glass water bottles. It isn’t bulky or heavy and holds enough water to get you through a workout session or an afternoon at the office.

For convenience, Lifefactory also offers three different cap styles to suit various lifestyles and activities. The press-n-go cap resembles lids found on tumblers, while the sport flip cap and pivot straw cap are common lid solutions for sport bottles.

Coming in at number six, we have the revered CamelBak Eddy. This water bottle has garnered all sorts of attention thanks to its unique drinking mechanism and solid construction. This water bottle is made from very strong glass that is both lead and PBA free and it’s all wrapped up in a stylish silicone sleeve. The sleeve doesn’t cover the entire bottle, so you’ll remember the fact that you are drinking from glass.

Apart from the sleeve, the most unique feature of the CamelBak Eddy is the drinking apparatus. Termed the ‘Eddy Bite Valve’, this solution is completely leak proof due to the silicone valve system that pops out with a simple flick.

To continue our list of glass drinking bottles we have the Origin Glass water bottle. Each different bottle manufacturer puts their own unique twist onto the water bottle concept and for Origin that splash of personality is found in the spill-proof bamboo twist cap.

The glass itself is a simple design that comes in various sizes (14, 22, 32 oz) to suit different needs, and there is a thick protective sleeve made from silicone to wrap it all up. There are thirteen colors to choose from, but we like seaside Green the best.

As an added bonus, the folks at Origin have decided to give a percentage of the money earned from each of their bottles to a charity responsible for building wells in Ghana, where poverty and lack of good drinking water has become a debilitating issue.

Next up, we have a large glass water bottle from Xtremeglas. The company was started by a veteran who saw a need for a clear glass water bottle with a purpose that goes beyond just holding water in it.

The Xtremeglas solution to many people’s water intake problems is the handy water measurement system complete with time stamps to help keep your eye on (quite literally) your water intake. At 32 ounces, filling the bottle twice solves your recommended daily intake, but it is also a large bottle.

For convenience, the steel lid and nylon carrying strap make for a easy-to-carry and completely spill-proof answer to the cap question. The choice of colors for the silicone sleeve is also a nice touch as we can now enjoy the benefits of silicone in the style we prefer.

The 26-ounce water bottle that we have included here on this glass water bottle master list is a bit of an oddball for two reasons.

For one thing, it is not actually a glass bottle for water. It’s made from a high-quality, PBA-free plastic that looks a bit like glass due to the subtle coloring and transparency. That said, it’s very nice plastic that will not break and will likely last for a very long time. The plastic also helps with the weight. Coming in a just over half a pound, this is the lightest water bottle on our list.

The second thing that really sets this water bottle apart is the fact that it has a built water filter. The filter goes right into the straw, so you can put water from any tap in your bottle and drink it as if you were drawing it from a mountain spring.

Pros

  • checkStraw with filter makes refills easy
  • checkLeak-proof lid
  • checkFlip cap is convenient
  • checkCup holder friendly

Cons

  • cross-altReplacing filters is necessary
  • cross-altPlastic bottle could be seen as a pro or a con

Ello Elsie is a water bottle that will stand out from the crowd, no matter where that crowd happens to be. You could bring this glass water bottle to the office, to the gym, or anywhere else, and it’ll look great. The choice of colors for the easy-open silicone flip cap adds a flare of style to the classic milk bottle look that this product is modeled after, and the branding and accents are very tastefully done.

Looks aren’t everything when it comes to glass water bottles though. Many leak and spill, for example, but that is never an issue with the Ello Elsie. Beyond being able to keep contents contained, all the materials used are safe and clean, leaving you free to enjoy your beverages without worry.

Another nice thig about this bottle is that the mouth is large enough for ice cubes, which also means that it is large enough for food items making this a perfect bottle for infused drinks.

When you are ready for something a little bit different, the Zulu Studio might be the one you are looking for. This water bottle comes with all the usual benefits, including durable glass that doesn’t leech harmful substances into your beverages, a sealing lid and a silicone sleeve.

What’s different about this bottle, though, is that fact that Zulu has managed to make all those standard offerings a little bit better. The cap, for example, doesn’t just seal perfectly. It also snaps closed and flips open at the touch of a button, and it can even be locked for times when accidental leaks are an absolute no-no.

As far as the silicone sleeve, the one on the Zulu Studio is one of the thickest we’ve seen, and it features some great-looking design choices as well. The whole package is easy to clean and when it comes time to wash this water bottle, all that is required is quick trip through the dishwasher.

Oh yeah, and did we mention that this glass water bottle is made with the demanding needs of athletes in mind?

Our list is coming close to the end but no comprehensive collection of the best glass water bottles 2019 has to offer would be complete without this unique offering from Glasstic. You could probably guess by looking the name that this glass water bottle might be a little different from the competition, and you would be absolutely correct!

Glasstic has cleverly combined all the benefits of glass and plastic bottles and put them into one package. With a contaminate-free interior glass insert to hold your delicious beverages and a plastic outer shell to protect the glass, you get safety and great taste together.

Another water bottle we had to include in number 19 on our list. The MIU Color glass water is a cool glass water bottle that looks quite different than a lot of the others that you’ve seen wither on this list or anywhere else.

Our bonus product is a good option for use either at home or at the office. The Ello Devon is a glass tumbler made from thick glass that is PBA free. It has a friction-fit wooden lid which is water tight thanks to its silicone seal and there is a straw for ease of use. For both added durability and style points, the attractive silicone boot which covers the majority of the tumbler’s body comes in several fun colors.

The included straw is thick making it easy to drink pretty much any drink you decide to put into your stylish new tumbler. The large, 2-inch mouth is big enough for ice cubes, chunks of fruits and veggies, and convenient washing, as well, which is yet another reason that we like this offering from Ello.

BUYING GUIDE & FAQ’S

As you can see, there are a huge number of glass water bottles to choose from but finding the perfect one isn’t always as simple as it seems. Considerations that you have to make include cap styles, material composition, size, and more. Do you need a silicone sleeve or is a nylon carrying case enough?

What type of glass should I choose?

When it comes to material composition you may have noticed from our list that the best glass water bottles are made from borosilicate glass. This type of glass is highly resistant to temperatures changes, meaning you can go from an iced drink to boiling tea in a matter of seconds without worrying about your glass bottle shattering. If you see a bottle design that you like made from borosilicate glass, it’s always a nice choice. Otherwise, be sure that the glass you choose is from a trusted company and is thick enough to withstand normal, daily wear and tear.

Is there a perfect size?

Another thing that you should pay attention to is the size of the bottle. Some people want a bottle large enough to satisfy their hydration needs with only one refill throughout the day, while others want more portable options. Looking at the diameter and height of the bottle that you are considering will help you understand if it’ll fit into your lifestyle. Sizes range from 14 ounces to 32 ounces, and sometimes even higher, so finding a glass water bottle that you will be able to use comfortably is very important.

Does it matter which lid I choose?

The short answer is, yes. Absolutely. Lids come in a few different form factors, and, like everything else in life, the one you choose should depend on how you intend to use it.

Some of the best lids for near-guaranteed leak-proof performance are screw on tops. There are many bottles that feature this lid style because of the inherent reliability that comes with it. Something to keep in mind, however, is that the material the cap is made from. Some water bottle makers choose materials that leave a metallic taste in the water which defeats the purpose of buying a glass bottle in the first place. Others create caps of multiple parts that easily come apart over time, and still others do not add anything in the seal department to guarantee leak-proof-ness.

Other lid styles that are commonly used include flip-top caps (with and without locking mechanisms), screw-on solutions with spouts (with and without straws), and there are even some fiction-fit press on style lids available. The best of all the variations that you will find will be leak-proof, but you’ll also find that each category also comes with its fair share of pretenders. Read through the reviews to see what types of experiences others have with the same cap styles.

Are there advantages to different types of protective sleeves?

Again, yes. The most common type of sleeve that you will find on the best glass water bottles is silicone. The durable nature of the material along with the great look and feel makes it the perfect solution to protect a glass bottle. That said, they are not all the same. Some are made to be removable and other are not. Some are thicker than others offering better protection, and some are made to be more stylish than protective.

If you care about taking your protective sleeve off for cleaning purposes, make sure to choose a bottle that makes that possible. Some manufacturers will include the product description that the sleeve is removable but reading a few customer reviews will tell you that the removal process can take you all day to complete.

Conclusion

If you are looking into buying a glass water bottle, you probably already know at least some of the advantages that glass has over plastic. You might be more focused on the taste benefits or maybe the environmental attributes, you could be concerned for the health of you and your family or perhaps you just want a great-looking water bottle to use at the gym or the office. The truth is, it doesn’t really matter which reason a person might pick for enjoying all that comes with glass water bottles because there are just so many benefits to choose from.

Choosing the right bottle for your particular needs comes down to figuring out how you are most likely to use your new bottle. Are you going to take it to the gym? The office? Are you going to be carrying your new glass water bottle around in your backpack or will it be sitting on top of your desk all day? Each of the products we have covered here comes with its own set of pros, and all you have to do is choose the best one for you.

BUYING GUIDE & FAQ’S

What Types of Gym Bags are Available?

Well, there are big ones, smaller ones, green ones, black ones…No seriously, there’s actually quite a lot of difference that can be found from one gym bag to another. A popular type is a duffel-style bag while others might prefer a backpack instead. However, the key differences usually come in the types of features that a gym bag might have.

Some will be designed for durability, others for functionality, others for their design, and others for not much more than pure space. What you will want from your gym back will come down to personal preference, the type of gym activities you’re going to be using it for, and of course, the price.

As well as all that, gym bags will differ in the features that they have. Some will have a dedicated compartment for shoes or wet clothes, some may have multiple pockets while some will offer shoulder straps for easier carrying.

Among the features you might want to look out for includes:

  • Wet Pockets
  • Shoe Compartments
  • Water-Resistance
  • Shoulder Straps
  • Breathability

What to Pack in a Gym Bag?

The type of clothing, equipment, and other items that you’re going to need to pack into your gym bag will obviously differ depending on the activity, workout, or sport that you’re going to be doing. However, there are a number of items that are going to be needed no matter what you’re doing.

These include:

  • Water Bottle – Without a doubt, you’re going to need a water bottle then you can use and refill on the fly when at the gym. You need to keep yourself hydrated, so this should always be one of the first things that you pack. Some gym bags even have a dedicated water bottle holder.
  • Towels & Washcloths – As you know, you’re going to be sweating quite a bit at the gym, or you should be. You’re going to need towels and washcloths to wipe yourself off from time to time.
  • Clothes – Depending on which way around you’re doing it, you’re going to need either your workout clothes or a change of clothes in your bag. Spare socks especially as we can only imagine what some of yours are going to smell like after a workout!
  • Shoes – Many of you will also want to have your training shoes or normal shoes kept in your bag for when they’re needed.
  • Plastic Bags – Some gym bags for men will have wet pockets but even so, you’ll want to put any sweaty clothes into plastic bags before putting them in your gym bag.
  • Shower Bag – You’ll definitely need a shower at the gym after your workouts – if you don’t, there is seriously something wrong with you. A shower bag full of everything you need is a big priority.
  • DeodorantDo you really want to submit your smelly armpits to others around you? Bring some deodorant!

Those are the priorities but there are other items that you might want to consider packing too. A cellphone perhaps for your music? How about your keys or wallet?

Specialized Roubaix Makes For Ultra-Comfy Cycling

Fast doesn’t have to mean uncomfortable. In fact, you really can’t focus on speed if something is off about your bike, especially if it feels ergonomically unsound. The Specialized Roubaix is a great choice that deals with both reasonably.

The best bikers in the world didn’t reach the finish line with a scraggly ride. They reached that milestone because their gear choices were topnotch, designed to withstand even the most unforgiving terrains. Specialized took the experience of riding cobbles at 28mph and used it to make a bike you can sit comfortably on even while coursing through very poorly maintained tracks. Not only that, but one that’s also stiff and aerodynamic enough to compete with the best bikes in the world.

It’s not the lightest of racing bikes, though. But it is very, very comfortable — fitting for riders who want to take it even further. It surely won’t hold a candle to the Specialized’s Tarmac or Venge models, to be frank. Even still, it’s far more comfortable than either of those. Key to this is its Pavé seatpost, which features an aero-shaped design specifically made to boost rider comfort.

The bike features Future Shock 2.0 technology which Specialized brought in previous model years. Designed for rough-terrain riding, it ensures a smooth, efficient ride as you roam around uneven landscapes. This new version also lets users adjust the damping and stiffness of the shock. That goes a long way to making the bike be more rigid and responsive. Hit the link below to find out how you can buy.
