Gifts for the active Moms in your life

I am betting that there are a number of guys, and gals, out there that are in the same boat I am.  Mother's Day is this Sunday and I have yet to get anything for the mothers in my life.  Well, I have been doing a little research and I came up with a number of "can't miss" gift ideas. 


Osprey Packs - Sirrus 36: This 36 liter pack is the perfect companion for your gal's next extended day hike or overnight camp.  Osprey's AirSpeed™ suspension will make her forget she is carrying a 20-30 pound load, all day. There are pockets everywhere on this top-loader, several large pockets for bulky items as well as a pocket on the lid, one each waist strap and even a handy pocket for her MP3 player or other essentials is built into the right harness strap.  Bred for the back-country this pack is well built and ready for years of outdoor fun. MSRP: $139.00
 
Sierra Designs - Lunatic Jacket:  This spring weight shell is a compliment waiting to happen.  Our tester can't wear this out the front door without someone commenting on it, and she loves it as much as anyone.  Built from Barricade™ waterproof breathable fabric, she'll stay warm and dry in any weather conditions.  Whether your gal is taking a cool early morning run or taking the kids to the park, this will be her new weapon of choice.  The perfect marriage of performance and style have made this jacket one of the most coveted in our spring gear test line-up.  MSRP$159.00
 
Sport Science - Performance T-Shirts:  There is a huge variety of athletic base layers available, but few are as cool as those available from Sport Science. Rapid wicking materials, seamless body construction and a tag-less design all make these shirts ideal for the performance minded.  Machine washable & dryable and odor resistant, they make for perfect gym wear.  Plus, where else can you get performance tie-dye?  No more cotton t-shirts for your gal!  Once she wears these, she will be converted for life.  MSRP:$23.40

Timex - Sleek 150-lap TAP watch:  If your lady is a runner, then she will LOVE this watch.  It may not have GPS or an Altimeter built in, but it is like having a trainer strapped to your wrist.  Able to record up to 150 split times as well as keep 2 time zones, alarms, pre-programmed training interval programs, Indiglo illumination, dated training logs and waterproof down to 100 meters.  The best part is that there is no hunting for buttons while in the middle of your workout, just give the watch face a tap to record split times or start/stop timers.  MSRP: $90.00

Fits Socks  Not all socks are created equal, and Fits Socks just jumped to the top of the food chain.  Constructed from two-ply, compact-spun, ultra-fine Merino wool, these socks are the best fitting socks in the outdoor world.  With over 100 years experience in sock design and manufacturing, Fits (made by Crescent Sock Co.)  is the oldest operating hosiery mill in the U.S.  A deep heel cup and special toe seam help keep the sock in place in even the most vigorous conditions.  And they come out of the washing machine as good as new every time..  MSRP: $17.99
