Tribesports Long-Sleeve Top and tribesports-long-sleeve-top-and-tightsTights

Bye bye shorts and t-shirt, hello long-sleeve top and tights. Well, perhaps not quite just yet, but we’re certainly preparing to wrap up more than we have been in the last few months. And when it comes to finding new base layers for the cooler weather, or new primary layers for those Indian summer nights, Tribesport’s long-sleeve running top and tights combo offers ideal versatility.

The top, which can be found in several colours, uses soft, flexible fabrics and strategic seam placement to ensure next-to-skin comfort, which should help prevent against chafing. It’s perfect for extra coverage when it does get cooler outside and has a soft and ultra lightweight moisture wicking fabric perfect for runners.

The Spandex content mix in the fabric also means your tee will always keep its shape. The tights combine technology with the highest-quality fabric to keep you warm in a wide range of conditions and help you perform at your best, on the road and on the trail. So light it’ll feel like you have nothing on!

plattan-adv-wireless-headphonesPlattan Adv Wireless Headphones

There are so many headphones out there that picking new ‘cans’ can be a hazardous task. Do you pick functionality over aesthetics? Wireless over cords? It’s a tough choice; you need headphones that do the biz when you’re at work or play.

The Plattan ADV Wireless headphone is the first Bluetooth headphone in the Urbanears line-up, and they come complete with a built-in microphone, a swipe interface on the ear cup and 14-hours solid playtime before recharging. Perhaps even cooler, though, is that they feature a removable headband with ear cushions that can be thrown in with your laundry. Nice touch, just as long as they don’t get lost with your socks, right? The sound quality is fresh, crisp and clean, and you can even share your music with friends thanks to the ZoundPlug. Smart.
