Buck Mason

Buck Mason Storm Stopper Outerwear Collection

The name says it all; Buck Mason’s latest outerwear series is a force of nature. The collection has three styles – the field jacket, the bomber jacket and the CPO jacket – all finished with a durable, water-repellent, cotton-rich mixed twill finish and lined with cozy Primaloft. The collection ranges from $ 195- $ 300, and anything but guarantees that you stay dry and warm while winter takes its last breaths.


NordicTrack iSelect adjustable dumbbells

More like smartbells, amiright? These adjustable dumbbells work with Alexa, which controls a motorized weight adjustment (5 lb. step within a 5-50 lb range). Basically, these two weights are meant to replace 20 individual dumbbells. Also comes with a free 30-day iFIT membership ($ 39 value).


BrewDog SAD AF

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

Women’s products

The ladies’ latest vibrator is a “body-friendly” version of the classic wand shape, renewed for maximum comfort and intense clitoral stimulation. The curved handle and available design make this lightweight device perfect for professionals, couples or first-time users of the wand.


Shaun White Pro Limited Edition signed snowboard

Sean White’s upcoming collaboration with Backcountry, called Whitespace, started last week with an exclusive drop. The signed Sean White Pro freestyle board, signed by Flying Tomato itself, has a directional twin shape that charges hard lines and provides instant, responsive control. It is also sent in a custom box with an embossed leather strap, which of course increases the cool factor. Keep an eye out for the first official Whitespace collection coming out later this season.


With less than three weeks to the 2022 Winter Olympics, Volcom will debut its official uniforms for the American men’s and women’s snowboard teams. With patented technology and bio-based sustainable materials, the brand’s attention to detail is unmistakable. Patches and trim proudly represent the United States, and even hidden elements, such as a faux lucky rabbit foot, add a touch of unseen character. Find a selection of Olympic-inspired equipment through Volcom in time for the Games (lucky rabbit foot is not included).

Secret shop

Secretly Canadian x Topo Designs SC25 Rover Pack

To celebrate their 25th anniversary, the IH-approved record company Secretly Canadian – The War on Drugs, Faye Webster, Jens Lekman, Major Lazer, Whitney and more – has teamed up with the IH-approved gear brand Topo Designs for (you guessed it) an IH-approved backpack. The classic Rover Pack is an excellent day bag: water-repellent, 1000D nylon and packed for the gills with all the pockets you could ever wish for. The SC25 patch does that just so much cooler.


Leica M11 rangefinder camera

The Leica M11’s name precedes, and with good reason, so it has come as no surprise to see the amount of buzz the compact camera has received. The gold standard for updating the rangefinder camera seems minimal at first glance, with slightly changed in body appearance, but an exclusively designed full-frame BSI CMOS sensor with triple resolution technology means crystal clear photography with a full-snored 60-18 megapixels. Add a Maestro III processor and 64GB of internal memory and you have all the justification you need for the prestige (and price tag) that the Leica M Series commands.


Campbells candles with soup scent

If you are a bed eater, you may have experienced the horror and panic of a soup-in-the-sheets situation. If you do not have, but are curious about how it can smell, the new Campbell’s scented candle collection is just the thing for you. With delicious flavors, err, scents like “Chicken Noodle Soup” and “Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese”, these waxy wafters guarantee to keep the tum-tum growling, and the house scents like mom’s just made you a solid dish with Campbell’s post-sledding excursion . Do we think that’s a good thing? You have time to reflect on it, as the collection was sold out right away. Watch out for a potential rebuild!


Shinola Forged Carbon Monster Automatic

Do you think carbon fiber watches are where they are? Shinola has the next best thing: a forged carbon version of their Monster Automatic, which has a 45mm carbon fiber watch case cut up, mixed with resin and then put under intense heat and pressure, leading to an extremely cool but lightweight ur. Plus, no two patterns are alike.

In the carafe

Transient tones

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


Adidas from Prada ReNylon

The long-awaited Adidas by Prada ReNylon finally dropped this week, and that’s about what we expected. That is, it blew our stinky socks off. The 21-piece collection, made in Italy, demonstrates a shared commitment to environmentally conscious innovation between the brands (Prada’s ReNylon has been hailed as a true recycling luxury), and each look feels low-key and ‘gram-worthy’ at the same time. The collection is available at Adidas CONFIRMED app, as well as Prada’s webshop. Well, until it’s sold out, that is.

Pepperidge Farms

Goldfish Mega Bites

What, these? No, no, they are not goldfish. They are… uh… Mega Bite Goldfish. So basically they are bigger? With 50%. And… crispier. And designed specifically for adults. To fit adult-sized hands. You see, the little goldfish, they were not good for the hands of great men. But Mega Bite Goldfish – now there are some hand-sized goldfish for adults.


Filson Alaskan Guide Jogger Pants

Do you know those pajama pants that your middle-aged, father-of-two, slightly shabby neighbor puts on after-work on Friday night and only takes off on Monday morning? Filson Alaskan Guide Joggers are the guy’s final form. Built with the same heavy flannel as Filson’s iconic guide shirts, they have an elastic waistband and cuffs to ensure a snug, cold-resistant fit. Wear them to get the paper. Carry them to an event you probably should not – maybe something in a church? Or for a formal dinner? Where they everywhere. Maybe neighbor Mike was inside something.


Real Margarita-style blend package

Truly’s new “margarita-style” canned drink is supposed to be a cross between a tough seltzer and a margarita – meaning we’ll probably be swallowing more 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 collaborated on a year ago? We did. Do we love this second drop even more? It’s certainly possible, what about the watercolor landscape in parkas and green pants that kicks you right out of the grayscale funk of winter.
