Craft: In the beginning, Craft founder Anders Bengtsson spent an inordinate amount of time looking at his underwear. After heavy exercise sessions outside his home in Borås, Sweden, Bengstsson would weigh his skivvies and use a moisture gauge to measure how sweaty they were. He used his research to develop the ideal layer to wear next to the skin—a garment that transports moisture outwards with as little absorption into the fibers as possible. The resulting brand, Craft, is now a global leader in peak-performance athletic apparel. Today on The Clymb, we’re offering Men’s and Women’s Craft cycling, running, and fitness apparel, for member-exclusive pricing.

Captain Kidd’s Comeuppance: Did you know? Of all the tyrannical scallywags hanged for piracy during the 18th century, few are as well remembered in popular culture today as Captain Kidd, who met the gallows on May 23 (that’s today!), 1701. Accused of murder, plundering, and generally terrorizing the high seas, Kidd was hanged at London’s Execution Dock. But historians now entertain the possibility that Kidd, who spent the final years of his life fighting to clear his name, was actually just a privateer who fell into ill rapport with politicians after becoming involved in several unpopular but arguably justifiable skirmishes. Of course we can’t ignore that those historians might just be trying to throw us off the trail of Kidd’s legendary buried traaaaay-sure.
