Each week, our inbox runneth over with news of gear, apparel and tech releases from around the world. In this feature, we’ll parse through the best of it. Today: Heaven’s Door’s newest release, Dometic’s powered cooler makes ice-cold drinks a portable reality and Myles Apparel releases the best pair of trunks we’ve seen to date.
For slow-cooking juicy, flavorful meals Our Place’s new Tagine will not only produce comforting, flavorful dinners but will look good doing it. That’s because the conical-shaped, North African cookware is handcrafted from durable clay in Morocco by skilled artisans, so each Tagine is unique.
It’s the summer of RTD cocktails. Getting in on the action is Dos Equis who recently launched a 10% ABV Classic Lime flavored margarita that blends smooth Blanco tequila and fresh lime juice in a can.
You know all those upstart minimalist watch brands that have been everywhere over the last few years? This is the exact opposite of that. This is the Long Island iced tea of watches — no idea, no matter how crazy, was left out of the mix. Fossil dialed up streetwear icon Jeff Staple, who is celebrating 25 years of his brand, and together they concocted a design that merges two ‘90s archival watches (Fossil’s sundial and hologram timepieces), adds in an automatic movement for practicality, is wrapped in terrazzo-styled silicone and plops the final product in a collectible egg. Like a big ol’ dinosaur egg. If you like your wristwatches to stand out (and we’re not just talking about the gnomon), this is for you.
Much like Matador’s previous gear, the Flatpak Dry Bag has been designed with one thing in mind; peak performance (cue Rocky music). Engineered to an IPX7 waterproof rating, the bags come in 8 and 2 liter sizes, ready to protect whatever stuff you packed that can’t handle the elements quite like you can.
You know that thing about not wearing a band’s T-shirt to their concert? We’re going to make an exception to that idea with this collection. To celebrate the upcoming release of Nope (Jordan Peele’s latest, which we’ve been looking forward to all summer), designer Jide Osifeso created some of the best movie merch on the planet. The eight-piece capsule collection includes T-shirts, sweatshirts and a twill hat inspired by the alien (it has to be aliens, right?) thriller that drops next week. Bonus: Universal Pictures is making a donation to the Compton Cowboys and their Compton Junior Equestrians program alongside this release. Yeehaw.
The newest artistic contribution from Bob Dylan? A straight bourbon whiskey that’ll make you sing. Released by the award-winning Haeven’s Door, this 10-year bourbon is the first release in a trailblazing new collection of premium whiskeys, curated out of a true labor of dedication and patience over time. Kinda like Bob.
Wow, Hasbro is going allow you to create classic action figures in your own likeness by using facial mapping technology via their newly minted high-tech Hasbro Pulse app service to churn out 6″ mini-mes for 60 bucks a pop?? That’s so co…uh…wait…that’s so…uh…it’s pretty creepy, huh?
Returning in collaboration with visual Artisst Geoff McFetridge, Scandinavian retailers Norse Projects dropped a minimalist multi-piece clothing capsule that places itself firmly at the intersection of the design and nature Venn diagram. In Norse Projects’ words, the collection is “designed not merely as gear for the trip, but as a narrative on how technology, myth and sustainability influence our perception of the outdoors today.” Do we understand exactly what that means? Nah, but we trust them. Boy, do we trust them — just look at how sick that sweatshirt is!
If you’re familiar with Dometic’s high-end coolers, you’re either serious very serious about chilled beverages aboor you’re a little too comfortable with the phrase “van life.” (or both!) Regardless, while a $1,200 cooler isn’t in most people’s budgets, the CFX3 55IM is well worth it; boasting some serious power — enough to freeze ice inside the cooler — and a rugged shell, nothing quite compares.
The Catalina Swim Trunks are, for our money, about as close to the ideal swim trunks as you can get. Four-way stretch fabric, zippered pockets, a modest 6″ inseam; what more could you ask for?
Fancy yourself a web-head fanatic? Interested in the hype-er things in life. Your gonna love Kith’s Spider-Man capsule, featuring a bevy of friend neighborhood graphics on a ton of tees and hoodies. Too bad it sold out immediately.
Freya is “the razor with a secret.” Its secret? Not only does the ergonomic razor delivers a close, smooth shave it also…doubles as a vibrator with six powerful modes. We know, sounds slightly dangerous, but don’t fret, the blades twist off before you go to town. Perfect for traveling or users who want a seriously discreet plaything.
