Fishing

Marmot jacket perfect for any hiking trail

You don't necessarily think of a jacket as summertime gear, but when you run into bad weather on the hiking trail - particularly at altitude - you quickly discover how important it can be. The Marmot Red Star is a high-tech jacket that manages to be both waterproof and comfortable. Made with a three-layer NanoPro stretch fabric (a proprietary Marmot product), the Red Star keeps water out, even in the strongest downpours. After the storm, the Red Star's underarm vents will help if you start to overheat on the trail and help you dry out.

A stuntwoman reveals her fascinating workout regimen

You may have heard of stunt woman Jessie Graff. Earlier this summer, the talented 32-year-old donned a two-piece Wonder Woman outfit and dominated the "American Ninja Warrior" course, giving other competitors serious competition. But even if you never heard of Graff, chances are, you've seen her work on film and television. She's done stuntwork for "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," "Live Free or Die Hard," "The Dark Knight," "Supergirl," "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," and "Hawaii Five-0" just to name a few.
