The Boardsmith

Knob Creek Bourbon Barrel Grilling Planks

Known for their premium wood butcher blocks, The Boardsmith has teamed up with Knob Creek to bring consumers grilling planks crafted from genuine, used barrel wood that’ll give your meats and grilled vegetables smoky and sweet bourbon flavors.


Tabasco #HotGrillSummer Cooler and Cookout Kit

Inspired by its new line of BBQ sauces, Tabasco has created a kitschy mini cooler perfect for hauling drinks and your collection of hot sauces to the beach, pool or backyard BBQ.


Filson x Paul Bunyan

Joining the ranks alongside Smokey the Bear, Paul Bunyan has now joined the Filson family with a line of his own T-shirts. For every tee sold, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the National Forest Foundation to help preserve the legendary lumberjack’s stomping grounds.

Molson Coors

Molson Coors Five Trail Whiskey

Coors and whiskey aren’t words you usually hear together — outside of my local’s beer and a shot promo — but a new release aims to bring those two worlds together. Five Trail is a 95-proof blended American whiskey made with Coors malt and Rocky Mountain water, blended and bottled in partnership with Bardstown Bourbon Co. in Bardstown, KY.

Soft Services

Clearing Duo Clearing Clay & Clearing Mist

Body acne … not the most fun to deal with. But it can be simplified. Meet Soft Services’ new Clearing Duo, two body acne products designed for adult body breakouts. The set comes with a sulfur wash/mask/spot treatment and a quick-drying acne treatment to help with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation to clear pesky breakouts and keep them at bay.


Kodiak Skogan Collection

110-year-old Canadian boot brand Kodiak released their most eco-conscious collection yet. “For exploring the planet with less impact,” the collection of hikers boast breathable, waterproof comfort, superb durability and a slip-resistant rubber outsole, not to mention a 100% recycled plastic lining and mesh upper and 50% recycled plastic laces.

Dad Grass

Dad Grass x Free & Easy

For their third collaboration, Los Angeles-based cannabis brand Dad Grass and design label Free & Easy have released a limited-edition collection of tees, tanks, totes and hats with splashy graphics and an  80s SoCal surf vibe.


PURTREK Trek Pole & Water Filtration System Pole Set

Have you ever looked at a trekking pole and wondered how you could improve upon its timeless design? It’s okay if you didn’t, but the folks at PurTrek did when they made a hiking pole with a built-in pump-style filtration system to provide you with clean water on the trail. The telescopic pole set is made from lightweight aluminum that’s incredibly durable, while the hollow-fiber filter removes over 99% of waterborne pathogens. Simply siphon water through the tip of the pole and filter it to the top when the nearest faucet is miles away.


Oakley Xeus

Oakley’s all-new Xeus model draws inspo from the kabuto of samurai, the legendary warrior of the Olympics’ host country, Japan. With the sunglass brand’s PhysioMorphic Geometry technology, the lenses provide optimized coverage and frame-like retention while enhancing color and detail. You can shop the limited-edition release on August 12 on Oakley’s website.
