Wirecutter's 100 Most Popular Picks in April

While some parts of the country were sprinkled with spring snowfall in April, others were bathed in summertime temps. This transition month brought with it a grab bag of sought-after picks, from air purifiers to at-home blood pressure monitors to portable air conditioners. As people shook off the last vestiges of winter, they began looking outside, turning to mosquito control gear, garden hoses, and dog harnesses for the pups they adopted during the pandemic. Speaking of COVID-19, though vaccine appointments are rolling out across the country, masks aren’t going away quite yet, and readers picked up N95 masks to keep everyone safe. Curiously, electric toothbrushes and beard trimmers were also hot items. Spiff up, everyone—summer is almost here!

Head here to find the entire list of popular picks.

I carry bottles of water, but I also have a Sawyer squeeze water filter. Also, if it’s cold, make sure you sleep with your water filter in your sleeping bag, so it doesn’t freeze.
