Springtime means more time. More time to get outside and go on a hike after work, head to the rock climbing gym, or just kick back and play some video games. Other than being all the better in the spring, the one thing all of those activities have in common is that they require gear. Whether that be a helmet, some great climbing rope, or just a solid watch to keep track of when you need to pack it up for the day. Whatever you plan on doing with all of this extra daylight we’ve been lucky enough to benefit from, we’re sure our rundown of this month’s picks of the best gear on Amazon will help you in your pursuit.
The most underrated piece of camping gear is a simple utensil. CRKT knows as much, which is why they made this spork multi-tool out of 2Cr13 stainless steel and fitted it with a carabiner for easy carry.
The North Face Canyonlands 1/2 Zip
Looking for a solid pullover jacket for those chilly spring nights? Let us suggest this pick from one of our favorite outdoor brands. Made from a polyester stretch fleece, it’ll keep you warm without weighing you down or getting in your way.
Black Diamond 9.9mm Climbing Rope
Generally considered one of the best climbing ropes around, this bit of gear is ideal for those who are looking to set their own route and climb to the heavens.
Spyderco Manix 2 Plain Edge Folding Knife
This American made knife from Spyderco features a BD-1 Carpenter steel blade with a fiberglass reinforced handle and a ball bearing lock for easy opening.
Danner Jag Lifestyle Boot
Have a hankering for old-school boots that look like they’re from the 1980s and early 1990s? Consider this release from Danner. They features a leather and nylon upper, a deep lugged outsole, and an OrthoLite footbed.
Osprey Escapist 32 Daypack
Looking for a sizable pack for day hikes and overnight trips? Consider this one from Osprey. The 32 liter bag has plenty of room for storing gear, comes with a rain cover, and even boasts an internal organizer for bike tools and tubes.
Amazon Echo Spot
Great tech for a low price. Those are things you don’t often hear together, but that is definitely the case with Amazon’s Echo Spot. This Alexa-enabled tool will read off the news, conduct video calls, and even help you do your shopping. Not bad, for a menacingly large tech company.
Some motorcyclists live for nothing more than being able to feel the wind on their face as they rocket down the highway. It’s not an exclusive feeling. You, too, can pick bugs from your teeth by just strapping on this brain bucket and opening up the throttle.
Timex Intelligent Quartz Fly-Back
Are you looking for a solid wristwatch for everyday wear but don’t necessarily want to spend the equivalent of a year’s rent? Us too. That’s why we love Timex watches. They’re classic, consistent, and often pretty attractive. Take their 43mm Fly-Back chromo for example. It’s water resistant to 330 feet, features an indigo night light, and unique dial.
Sony WF-SP700N In-Ear Sports Headphones
Don’t let annoying headphone wires get in the way of your workout. Sony’s new noise-cancelling sports headphones operate for up to 9 hours on a single charge and are splash-proof – making them ideal for wearing on even your toughest days in the gym.
Looking to capture great quality video for less? Consider GoPro’s new HERO cameras. Priced to be more accessible to a broader market, these things can record 1080p at 30 frames per second, and 720p at 60. And yes. They’re just as rugged and durable as the higher end versions.
HTC VIVE Pro VR Reality Headset
For those looking for a totally immersive gameplay experience, check out the HTC VIVE Pro. This unit boasts a super high resolution, immersive audio, and real-life movement for a one-of-a-kind type of gameplay.
