After putting 20 towels through 60 hours of testing—including an intense day of sand and surf at the beach—we’ve concluded the PackTowl Personal offers the best balance of drying time, packability, and odor resistance without compromising comfort and design. A good option for nearly every towel-related scenario, it’s lightweight, extra-large, and supersoft, making it usable for both car camping and travel into the backcountry.
After interviewing veterinarians and professional dog walkers, plus looking into more than 60 models and testing six of them, we think the Flexi New Neon Retractable Tape Dog Leash is the best retractable dog leash for most dogs and their owners. It is built sturdily out of bright, reflective material, is affordable, and comes from a company serious about pet and user safety (and that developed the retractable leash in the first place). But before you buy a retractable leash, be sure you actually need one.
Well balanced and affordable – what’s not to love?
The all-in-one to beat gets even better
We spent 50 hours using 33 pairs of swim goggles in South Carolina and the Dominican Republic, subjecting them to many miles of pool swimming, hundreds of waves, and buckets of sand, salt, and chlorine. In the end, we determined that for recreational swimmers who want to extend the time they can spend in the water, the Aqua Sphere Kayenne is the best pair of swim goggles for most adults, and the Aqua Sphere Kayenne Jr is the best swim-goggle model for most kids.
