Buck Mason

Buck Mason Storm Stopper Outerwear Collection

The name says it all; Buck Mason’s latest outerwear line is a force of nature. The collection consists of three styles – the field jacket, the bomber jacket and the CPO jacket – all finished with a durable, water resistant, cotton rich blended twill finish and lined with cozy Primaloft. The collection ranges from $195-$300, and pretty much guarantees you’ll stay dry and warm as winter takes its last breath.


NordicTrack iSelect adjustable dumbbells

More like smart bells, right? These adjustable dumbbells work with Alexa, which controls a motorized weight adjuster (in 5 lb increments within a 5-50 lb range). Basically, these two weights should replace 20 individual dumbbells. Also comes with a free 30-day iFIT membership ($39 value).


BrewDog SAD AF

As reported by The Drinks Business, Jordan Stephens of Rizzlekicks – who is also the co-founder of the mental health campaign #IAMWHOLE – collaborated with BrewDog on this non-alcoholic beer to raise awareness for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). You can watch the campaign video here. The beer is a 0.5% marshmallow pale ale; 100% of SAD AF’s profits go to #IAMWHOLE’s Mental Health Research Fund.

Lady Products

Dame’s latest vibrator is a “body-friendly” take on the classic rod shape, revamped for maximum comfort and intense clitoral stimulation. The curved handle and accessible design make this lightweight device perfect for professionals, couples or new wand users.


Shaun White Pro Limited Edition Signed Snowboard

Sean White’s upcoming collaboration with Backcountry called Whitespace kicked off last week with an exclusive drop. The autographed Sean White Pro freestyle board, signed by the Flying Tomato itself, features a directional twin shape that charges up hard lines and gives instant, responsive control. It also comes in a custom box with an embossed leather strap, which obviously adds to the cool factor. Stay tuned for the first official Whitespace collection coming later this season.


With less than three weeks until the 2022 Winter Olympics, Volcom is introducing its official uniforms for the US men’s and women’s snowboard teams. With patented technology and bio-based sustainable materials, the label’s attention to detail is unmistakable. Patches and embellishments proudly represent the USA and even hidden elements, such as a fake lucky bunny paw, add a touch of unseen character. Find an assortment of Olympic-inspired gear through Volcom in time for the games (lucky rabbit’s foot not included).

Secretly save

Secretly Canadian x Topo Designs SC25 Rover Pack

In celebration of their 25th anniversary, IH-approved record label Secretly Canadian — The War on Drugs, Faye Webster, Jens Lekman, Major Lazer, Whitney and more — teamed up with IH-approved gear brand Topo Designs for (you guessed it) ) an IH-approved backpack. The classic Rover Pack is an excellent day bag: water resistant, 1000D nylon and filled to the brim with all the pockets you could ever want. The SC25 patch makes it only that much cooler.


Leica M11 rangefinder camera

The Leica M11’s name precedes it, and for good reason, so it was no surprise to see how much buzz the compact has received. The gold standard of the rangefinder camera update may seem minimal at first glance, with little change to the body’s appearance, but an exclusively designed full-frame BSI CMOS sensor with triple-resolution technology means crystal-clear photography at a fully snorted 60-18 mega pixels . Add to that a Maestro III processor and 64GB of internal memory and you’ve got all the justification you need for the prestige (and price tag) commanded by the Leica M-series.


Campbell’s scented candles for soup

If you’re a beggar, you may have experienced the horror and panic of a soup-in-the-sheets situation. If you haven’t already, but are curious about what it might smell like, Campbell’s new scented candle collection is for you. With mouthwatering flavors of, er, scents like “Chicken Noodle Soup” and “Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese,” these waxy wafers guarantee the tum-tum will keep growling and the house smelling like mama’s, just like a hearty bowl of Campbell’s post-sledding made excursion . Do we think that’s a good thing? You have time to think about it, because the collection was sold out immediately. Keep an eye out for a possible restock!


Shinola Forged Carbon Sample Automatic

Do you think carbon fiber watches are where it is? Shinola has the second best: a forged carbon version of their Monster Automatic, with a 45mm case made from carbon fiber that has been chopped into pieces, mixed with resin and then placed under intense heat and pressure, leading to an extremely strong but lightweight watch. In addition, no two patterns are the same.

In the carafe

temporary tones

Japanese whiskey site Dekanta brings a soundtrack to the premium spirits space. Transient Tones is a boxset combination of nine whiskeys (including Yamazaki and Hibiki) with an unreleased selection of J-Jazz tracks.


Adidas by Prada ReNylon

Prada ReNylon’s highly anticipated Adidas finally came out this week, and it’s pretty much what we expected. That is, it blew our smelly socks off. Manufactured in Italy, the 21-piece collection demonstrates a shared commitment to environmentally conscious innovation across the brands (Prada’s ReNylon has been hailed as true recycled luxury), and each look feels low-key and gram-worthy at the same time. The collection is available at the Adidas CONFIRMED app, as well as Prada’s web store. Well, until it’s sold out, at least.

Pepperidge Farms

Goldfish Mega Bites

What this one? No, no, they’re not goldfish. They are… er… Mega Bite Goldfish. So are they actually bigger? By 50%. And… crispier. And specially designed for adults. Suitable for adult hands. You see, the little goldfish, they weren’t good for big people. But the Mega Bite Goldfish – now there is an adult hand-sized Goldfish.


Filson Alaskan Guide Joggers

You know those pajama bottoms that your dad of two middle-aged kids and a little sloppy neighbor does his job Friday night and doesn’t take off until Monday morning? The Filson Alaskan Guide Joggers are that guy’s definitive form. Made from the same heavy flannel as Filson’s iconic Guide shirts, they have an elasticated waistband and cuffs for a snug, cold-resistant fit. Wear them to get the paper. Wear them to an event you probably shouldn’t – something in a church maybe? Or to a formal dinner? Where they are everywhere. Maybe my neighbor Mike was on to something.


Margarita style mix pack

Truly’s new “margarita-style” canned drinks are said to be a cross between a hard seltzer and a margarita — meaning we’ll probably be drinking some of these this summer. Available in Classic Lime, Strawberry Hibiscus, Mango Chili and Watermelon Cucumber slim cans.


Gucci x The North Face Drop 2

Did we love the first collection that Gucci and The North Face put together a year ago? We did. Do we love this second drop even more? It’s certainly possible, with the watercolor landscape of parkas and green pistils taking you right out of those wintery grays of funk.
