Cornerstone Snag-Proof Polos are the premiere choice for hard working men and women. If you are like most people, then your work environment is not a free of snags, scrapes, or hazards that can quickly make your favorite shirt look unprofessional.
You can either buy a big stack of shirts and throw a few in the trash every month, or you can get yourself a few Cornerstone Snag-Proof Tactical Polos and never worry again. It is the first choice of police, security guards, and athletes who need a polo that not only looks professional, but can hold up to the snags and hang ups expected in life.
Cornerstone developed the Snag-Proof Tactical Polo specifically with event staff, security, and law enforcement in mind. They are 6.6 ounce, 100% snag proof polyester with double-needle stitching and a tag-free label. It is stain resistant, machine washable, and wrinkle resistant. They are also available in 10 different colors for both men and women so you can add variety to your wardrobe or match the company colors you require.

Have child and have not slowed down! This blog seeks to chronicle the joys and challenges of taking kids hiking, camping, backpacking, skiing, biking, paddling and all-out exploring in the Canadian Rockies.
This week's outdoor blogger is from the rocky mountains near Calgary Canada. Tanya has created a unique resource for locals who are looking to recreate with their children. While discovering her love for sharing their family camping through blogging, she also discovered that many local families needed a place to find information on family outings in the area.
Tanya's love for the outdoors and sharing her adventures with others spills out of the screen, as you read her blog.
She is the founder of "Calgary Outdoor Playgroup" where their motto is "children running their crazy into the world," where she leads the group ages 2-6. Tnya goes out and explores new places with her children and shares their adventure both online and in her local community.
Connecting families in the outdoors drives Tanya's passion for community and sharing. "Connecting families, bringing people together, and building an outdoor village here in Calgary of families who want to play outside together."
While inspiring readers online, Tanya and her family hope to connect with other locals and those visiting the area.
As the air becomes chilly, and the leaves begin to change, so must our activewear. Winter running can be uncomfortable, but it doesn't have to be! Outersports.com reached out to a seasoned runner in South Eastern Idaho in hopes of discovering some tips for running during the winter months.
Brett Bawden and is his lovely wife Josie train year round, and the cold weather doesn't slow them down one bit. Brett and Josie train to qualify for the Boston Marathon and other races all year, and they take their training seriously. Brett and Josie are well known in their community for their personal training tips, and starting the "Just Cuz Half Marathon" in Pocatello, ID. Brett was kind enough to give our readers some guidelines on running in the cold. He makes it clear that by using the proper activewear you can avoid feeling uncomfortable when running outside.
Brett changes his activewear depending on the temperature. When the weather is nice and anything above 40 degrees he wears basic running shorts and a light tee shirt. Once the temperature drops below 40 degrees, he throws on a wind breaker and some running pants.
However, when the temperature drops below twenty five degrees, it is time to break out the big guns! Running tights and a top are essential for staying warm and dry.
The Coldpruf premium performance thermals are a great option if you don't want the cold to slow you down from your active life. This product stands up to other leading brands but is half the price. The polyester / spandex blend gives protection against high winds while the trim fit keeps the material from bunching during high activity.
These thermals are great for that cold weather run, and a cross-country ski workout, or on the ski slope. They are designed for maximum dryness and antimicrobial odor-control. This is perfect for any distant runner who is training this winter season. We also have Coldpruf Premium Performance Thermals for women as well!
The greatest golf shot of my life was when I was 17 years old. My drive off the tee landed on the right edge of the fairway on a par four and I was facing a tough second shot with trees and a back to front sloping green nestled between two sand traps. I pulled out my 9 iron and gave the ball plenty of loft to clear the trees only to quickly lose sight of it in a sky full of clouds. I must have walked around the green and scoured through the ivory colored sand for nearly fifteen minutes to no avail. As I unzipped my bag preparing to drop another ball on the edge of the rough I decided to take one last look behind the green. That’s when I saw it. My ball was resting in the cup. I threw both fists into the air in victory. My first eagle! I enjoyed a small sense of victory as I glanced around with nobody to share it with.
It might be more accurate to call it my luckiest golf shot ever rather than my greatest shot, but for these professional golfers luck has little to do with it. I present to you some of the craziest golf shots in history.
The Skipper: During a practice round at the 2009 Masters Tournament at Augusta, Vijay Singh faces a 170 yard Par 3. After a couple of practice shots he decides to start skipping the ball across the water toward the green. He not only hits the green on each attempt, but on his third try actually nails a hole in one!
The Tree Wedge: In the final round of the 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational, Sergio Garcia’s ball gets stuck up in a tree. Rather than take a drop and lose a stroke he instead decides to climb up into the tree. The resulting single handed backhand shot not only lands well on the green but far closer to the hole than anyone would have guessed.
The “Wait for it” Shot: After having a lack luster performance on the day, Fuzzy Zoeller seemingly defies the laws of physics with an incredibly lucky shot. After a 173 yard shot off the tee his ball gets stuck on the fringe where it sits for a long TEN SECONDS before magically deciding to roll onto the green and directly into the cup.
Trick Shot Compilation: Geoff Swain completes a series of challenging bounce shots, drop shots, chip-ins, left handed short club shots, back hands, tennis serves, ricochets, and others that you just have to see to believe. What’s almost as impressive is that professional golfer Ian Poulter tries many of them for the first time and has success himself!
The Clay Pigeon: In 2010 the European Tour decided to set up a promotional video for their upcoming tournament season. They invited several pro golfers to attempt a shot that would be seemingly impossible. After launching a clay pigeon out of a thrower, typically designed for shotgun skeet shooting, the golfers would attempt to hit the clay mid-air with a direct drive off the tee. After several close shaves from the other golfers, Simon Khan hits the pigeon dead center.

Did you know that the original founder of Mother’s Day was actually arrested for disturbing the peace? She was! Anna Jarvis and her sister were so upset that the holiday had become more about printed greeting cards and thoughtless gifts that they were arrested while campaigning against it. She said, “A printed card means nothing except that you are too lazy to write to the woman who has done more for you than anyone in the world. And candy! You take a box to Mother – and then eat most of it yourself. A petty sentiment.”
Mother’s day originated so that families would reunite after being divided during the Civil War. But since its establishment on May 9, 1905 I think most of us would agree with Anna. The mothers of the world deserve more than a generic card. Before we go any farther I should remind you . . .
Mother’s day is May 12
Let everyone else get their mother something from the gift card store. Getting something special for your mother or wife (from your kids of course) means you should find something she actually would enjoy. If yours is the outdoorsy type that likes to hike, camp, do gardening or anything else outside then we can help you with the following gift ideas.
The Port & Company Honeycomb Sling Pack – This is absolutely affordable at less than $6. This sling pack is cute and comfortable with a built in audio pocket and an exit port for headphones. It’s sling design gives it a more feminine appeal compared to a standard backpack, but if a different women’s pack sounds like a better fit there are plenty of options such as a Cinch Pack, Hydration Pack, or even an Xcape Computer Backpack for those who can’t part with technology in the wild. There is also a general rule of thumb that women love bags, purses, and anything that helps them stay organized and look good at the same time.

Merino Wool Socks – In fact, anything made out of Merino Wool will quickly become one of her favorites. Women are often colder than men. Biologically speaking, women generally have more constricted blood vessels. This puts their blood flow closer to the surface of the skin making them feel colder. The body handles this by redirecting the warm blood flow to the vital organs, leaving their hands and feet freezing! Merino wool is the highest quality and thinnest fiber of wool available. It feels just like cotton against your skin but has all the moisture wicking, and thermal insulating properties you expect from wool. Every time she puts on her Merino Wool Socks or Thermals she will feel warm and toasty and think of you.
It’s hard to believe that year after year new world records are being set and then broken. Some unique individuals continue to always press the limits of human ability. What was once impossible somehow gets done. After watching these athletes doing the impossible you will be shocked, motivated, and inspired to realize what is really possible.
Mark Felix – Born in Grenada and living in England you’d think Mark came to earth from Krypton. At 6 ft 4 in and 294 lbs Mark has won multiple international grip competitions. Grip contests test each competitor’s strength in crushing, pinching, and supporting various weights and holds. In March 2013 Mark shocked the world at the Arnold Strongman Classic when he successfully dead lifted 1,128 lbs worth of Tires.
Rhonda Rousey – In a sport dominated by men Rhonda has fought to earn her respect. Coming out of Riverside County, California like rising phoenix she has secured her place in history. Rhonda was the youngest Olympic Judo competitor at the 2004 games in Athens and won the World Junior Judo Championships in Budapest. She soon began climbing the ranks of women’s mixed martial arts where she holds a perfect 7-0 record. In February 2013 she became the first ever Bantamweight Champion when she defeated Liz Carmouche in the first round via armbar submission. As if that isn’t enough, she shocked fans of the sport everywhere when she easily submitted the popular Uriah Hall during a practice session . . . TWICE!
Krystian Herba – Most people may not recognize his name, but once you see what he accomplished you’ll never forget it. Krystian is a well-rounded athlete from Poland. He has won several Amateur snowboarding championships there, but is most well-known for his cat like skill on a trials bike. In just 1 hour and 21 minutes Krystian crushed a world record by jumping his bike up 2,754 steps in Shanghai. He was able to do this without touching the ground or walls throughout the duration.
Damien Walters – Although tomorrow is Damien’s birthday, he earned his place on this showcase through raw athletic ability. Damien developed his skills while competing for multiple Trampoline World Championships, but is most well known for being one of the world’s best Parkour and Freerunning individuals. A few online videos launched his fame to over 70 million views and growing. He has since appeared as a stunt double in multiple films including Captain America, Sherlock Holmes, and the latest James Bond film Skyfall.
Heaven might be a place where the dew glistens on the fresh cut grass. It’s a place where the smell of crisp clean air hanging on a soft breeze and majestic pines casting long shadows across the perfectly groomed landscape. There is no feeling like crack of a clean struck ball off the end of your driver. You look up to watch your white ball streaking through the sky. Then it happens. Your ball slices out of control over the trees and directly into the demilitarized zone of North Korea. Better take a mulligan!
Did you know there is a golf course bordering the DMZ between North and South Korea? It is maintained by the United States Army. Your caddy is required to be a trained sniper and all players have to be armed with a firearm before being allowed to play. Don’t sweat for long though because this high stakes golf course is only a single par 3 just under 200 yards in from the tee to the hole. But this par 3 sits at the #1 spot in our list of Most Memorable Golf Courses.
If you survive the par three in Korea you might think about trying your luck at becoming a legend. The 19th hole at the Legendary Golf Resort in South Africa features a vertigo inducing par 3. From the tee to the hole below you’ll have to place your shot on a green that sits over 1,300 feet below. Being careful not to fall over the edge of the cliff, and If you are lucky enough to hit anywhere near the green, you then get to ride a helicopter down to the fairway below – the only way to get there! #2 on our list is the Legend Golf & Safari Resort.
One of the most unique and celebrated courses in the world won’t get you shot at or dangling over a cliff. In fact, it’s nestled safely in the Rocky Mountains by the scenic Lake Coeur d’Alene. But wait there’s a twist. One bad shot on hole #14 and you’ll be swimming for your ball. This par 3 is the world’s only movable and floating green. Drifting on the lake 150 yards from the shore you’ll have one, or many, memorable shots at the floating green. Then you can enjoy a boat ride out to make your putt or scuba dive for your previous ten shots if you are off your game.
Wherever you decide to fulfill your golfing fantasies we are excited that the snow is melting and it’s time to break out the clubs. Outersports has a wide variety of golf shirts and polos to give you a fresh and comfortable start on the season. In a variety of styles, colors, and fabrics for both men and women we know you’ll find something perfect for your needs.
It’s often called the toughest event on the planet. But if that’s true why is almost everyone smiling? How could people love pain and torture so much? Like a moth to the flame over 700,000 participants show up, have their number written on their face, and then blitz through the 10-12 obstacle course known as the Tough Mudder.
Outsiders gawk at the competitors as they watch them run, climb, clamber, and even crawl through slop and mud. They scale giant walls and belly crawl through muck with electrically charged wires waiting to shock them just inches over their backs. Their mental grit seems almost self-abusive and yet attractive at the same time.
The Tough Mudder competitions were started and designed by the British Special Forces. If you are brave enough to sign up, and just crazy enough to finish, it’s as if you have survived a rite of passage. You become a comrade with the other twisted fitness freaks. It connects you with a band of survivors across the globe who want to compete and race, but are bored with a typical marathon. Competitors don’t take themselves seriously. The obstacles can’t all be completed by yourself so you’re forced to wear a smile and get along. The guy you just passed and laughed at might be your only chance of getting over the next big wall.
Once you have your free spirited attitude in tact you’ll want to wear the right gear. As fun as it sounds to run through the obstacles in your underwear – everyone else will enjoy it much more if you dress the part.
Your shoes will get wet and packed with mud so protect your feet with Fox River Polypropylene socks. They wick water from your skin and prevent blisters by reducing friction. A Sport-Tek reversible mesh tank top provides plenty of options for team colors if you are taking a group with you. Match your top with your Champion Mesh Reversible shorts – which have a draw string they won’t slip off when belly crawling through muddy ice water. The mesh fabric for both the tank top and shorts will keep you comfortable and dry.
Every year a new fitness program, DVD box set, or piece of equipment seems to become the next trend. Those trends seem to always be wrapped around a highly marketed product or person. They explode on the scene and then fade into the closet like so many fads that have grown and died before them. But every so often one stands out. One approach emerges from the pack and stands the test of time. One system grows and holds its ground. CrossFit has climbed out of the crowd and secured its place in the fitness world. Why? Because it works! But What is Crossfit?
Take one look at an avid CrossFit junkie and there is no denying how effective the system works. Cut abs, strong legs, chiseled biceps are what you see on the outside but just wait. Stick around long enough and you’ll see women snatching barbells over their heads and men doing vertical pushups against the wall like a gymnast. CrossFit feels like a chimera of mixed martial arts, power lifting, and Navy Seal training blended together with a fun and positive environment.
One of the biggest reasons why CrossFit has become so successful is the fantastic culture that exists among the members. Newcomers are welcomed, pushed to do more, and praised for all efforts. You walk into an immediate support group that guides your technique and expects greatness. You walk out feeling like a champion.
Everyone in a CrossFit group will be supportive, but one thing they can’t do is tell you how to dress. Making sure you have the right apparel for the workout will improve your confidence and create a better environment for everyone around you. You will sweat! Count on it! Grabbing your typical cotton t-shirt is not the best option.
Wearing a comfortable, breathable top like a Sport-Tek PosiCharge Mesh tank top is a great option. Champion offers a Double Dry fabric top that wicks your sweat away from your skin without sticking to your body. The same Double Dry fabric also comes in matching colors and styles for both women’s workout shorts and men’s athletic shorts too.
