Greatest Gear for 2014: ‘Best in Show’ Award Winners

Power Popsicles — With a goal of cooling the core body temperature while replenishing electrolytes, PowerICE touts its namesake product as “frozen hydration.” We are sold — the popsicles are perfect during activity on hot days.

Sodium and potassium provide electrolytes in the 30-calorie frozen bars. They taste good and contain no high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors. Just remember your cooler at a race or event to keep them frozen all day.
