Recently they were visiting here and we did shop . Some of things he mentioned are not readily available in India, If they are,  they are not that great quality .Most of them are sport related

Here is the list
Cycling Pants and Shirts

He is preparing for triathlon. He did not get good pants and shirts that professionals use for cycling . You know most of us wear loose t-shirts and pants for cycling, Thats no good , Too much resistance , You need tight clothing .

Wristband

which measures running miles , swim laps and cycling runs ,After spending quite some time researching for it , We bought this Garmin Vivoactive HR . We have too many fight over which one we should buy .

Good Running Shoes

We actually went to roadrunnerstore , Its Pretty cool how they measure everything and give you custom shoes and soles . He really loved it .

Here is what I learned that day

If you want good running shoes , Your should buy these saucony OR brooks shoes . There are several others but these are the best and designed for marathons and heavy runners or walkers.

I was so impressed that even I went to get shoes for myself, I bought  these Brooks , Working out very well for me

 

 

Water Bottle 

He wanted one little of bottle , Surprisingly finding 1 little of bottle was kind of difficult from hundreds of choices we had .Finally we settled with this camelbak. Apparently most of the stores do not sell 1L bottles ( kind of big size )

Car Cycle Mount

He  badly wanted to buy bicycle mount for car but we could not find anything that only carries one cycle , So idea was dropped .

Solar Lights 

He also loved the these solar automatic lights that we got for our backyard
