Provisions: Enhance your recreation and travel experience


▪ GoBQ portable grill


Imagine, if you can, a barbecue grill so compact it fits into your backpack. Actually, you don’t need to imagine it. A $135 “contribution” to will get you one of these 8-pound, fold-up barbecues, which will start shipping in August. The bottom of the device has foldable legs and the lid is a clam shell that also serves as the carrying case. It’s made of heat-resistant fabrics, of course, and it’s said to cool off fast.


▪ Oakley Prizm Road Jawbreaker sunglasses


You may not be able to cycle as fast as world-renown sprinter Mark Cavendish, but at least you can wear his style of glasses. Oakley has released a Canvendish model of sunglasses that are sleek and feature “surge ports for cooling airflow” when you’re pedaling 40 mph. One handy feature: a switch lock to easily change lenses.
