SPA: Real men don’t spa — they banya. And then they get hit with a pine tree. Trust, it’s thoroughly invigorating and terrific for the pores. Bonus: beer.
WORKOUT: Sure, scoff at Pilates. But maybe you wouldn’t mind being the only guy surrounded by two dozen women while getting a first-rate workout? Pilates ProWorks' new matBox series at their two S.F. studios mixes Pilates, yoga and boxing. And yoga pants.
CLOTH: The S.F.-based team behind “the world’s greatest hoodie” (American Giant) is back with a new update: the weekend edition, with a looser silhouette and a lighter weight for (fingers crossed) some summer sun.
GEAR: If anyone can update the fanny pack, it’s DSPTCH, who just released this waist bag — perfect for hands-free hiking. Don’t mind the Fidlock magnetic closures or, of course, the military-grade materials.
DESTINATION HIKE: Waterfall Loop at Big Basin Redwoods State Park. Nothing clears your head like 2,000 feet of elevation change — and 11 miles of giant trees, waterfalls and wildflowers.
