BUY

• De Soto Sport Riviera Tribib

$160; www.desotosport.com/product/RTB

If you've ever wondered why triathlon is considered a rich man's (and woman's) sport, we present the Tribib, which is used during bicycling and running segments. In other words, pony up the big bucks for a wetsuit, too. But, it should be noted, you can use it for non-wetsuit-allowed triathlons. It's made with all sorts of lightweight compression material. And, according to the website, you'll look great, too, because the tribib "offers a slimming look as it holds in the stomach and obliques while allowing ease of breathing and no cutting at the waist."

• "Death Grip," by Matt Samet

St. Martin's Press, $25.99, 302 pages

What's more harrowing than free-climbing a gnarly "problem?" Renown rock climber and former Climbing magazine editor Matt Samet answers that with his sobering memoir, "Death Grip." It chronicles how one of the top climbers struggled with depression, an eating disorder and an addiction to prescription drugs (benzodiazepines) that nearly killed him.

Hey, you wannabe lumberjacks, here are two – two! – jackets in one. As its name implies, the Rambler Reversible is a classic flannel jacket for those chores around the house or hikes in the woods; it can be reversed in inclement weather to become a technical wind shell featuring the impressive-sounding "Pertex Microlight Minirip Nylon." It weighs only 19 ounces.
