1) Hardtail vs. Full-Suspension: Mountain Bike Smackdown

2) Columbia Omni-Heat 3D Review: Thermal Tech Introduces Warm Nano Fuzzies

Beneath a microscope, Columbia’s newest technology is revealed. The Omni-Heat 3D may seem like a tiny upgrade, but our tester found noticeable effects.

3) Hunt in Comfort: Thermacell and the Million-Mosquito Army
