Easton Lacrosse Raptor Helmet

Easton Lacrosse gets Sports Techie. All you have to do is go to their web site at http://www.eastonlacrosse.com/ and look at the top menu bar.

Cool Palms by BEX Runner Product Review

BEX (Better Exercise Experience) Runner Company

When I was first contacted via Twitter by BEX (Better Exercise Experience) Runner and asked to try using the Cool Palms performance cooling device as an early adopter candidate, President and inventor Brett Warner could not have know that not only do I love to do just about any workout but I am also a sweater. My theory is that my half-Polish, half-Ecuadorian body composition allows me to adapt well to both hot and cold environments but the tradeoff is that I sweat quickly. If what they designed offers any kind of a core cooling benefit, as a lifetime athlete, I feel qualified to offer a certified Sports Techie review and let you know if it worked for me.
