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 them. Today:  W&P’s eco-friendly popcorn popper, sexy iPhone 13 cases from Nomad and a double handle 14-inch Finex skillet.


Hoka One One Bondi X

If you like extra cushioning in your running shoe, the Bondi model from Hoka One One has always been a good choice. With the new Bondi X model — on sale starting October 1 but available for pre-order now — the brand has kept that superior comfort and added the all-powerful carbon fiber plate. More propulsion, more speed, same marshmallowy feel. 


Promescent Delay Wipes

Using the same TargetZone Technology Promescent utilizes for its best-selling Climax Control Spray, the all-new Delay Wipes make warding off premature ejaculation simple and convenient. The compact, portable wipes use a 7% benzocaine formula to desensitize the penis’ most sensitive areas (the head and frenulum), so users can have longer-lasting, worry-free sex.


Finex 14” Double Handle Skillet

Finex is responsible for one of the heaviest and heavy-duty American-made cast-iron skillets you can buy. So what did the Portland company decide to do now? Make one that’s even heavier and heavier-duty. The new 14” Double Handle Skillet weighs in at 17.85 pounds when you include the lid (11.4 without), and while the double-spring handle design has been seen before (on their griddle and grill pans, and the Dutch oven), here it turns an already handsome piece of cookware into the perfect serving dish for your kitchen table. New Thanksgiving centerpiece, anyone?


Nomad iPhone 13 Series

Like clockwork: When a new version of the iPhone comes out, so too does a new version of Nomad’s handsome, durable leather cases. If you’re upgrading, you really can’t go wrong with one of these.


Danner 007 Tanicus

When you’re a secret agent trying to save the world (in style) you need the proper footwear to do it. That’s why the filmmakers of the upcoming James Bond film No Time To Die hit up Danner, the iconic footwear brand known for its line of rugged boots, to equip Mr. Bond. The 007 Tanicus is the special-edition boot worn by the special agent and was on sale until it swiftly sold out. But here are its specs anyway: a durable suede and 1000 Denier nylon Cordura upper, breathable mesh lining and a grippy Vibram Tanicus outsole designed to handle nearly any terrain.

NanoProjects by Rhone

Created by Rhone Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer Kyle McClure, Nanoprojects is a “new innovation lab and higher-end label” that’ll live under the performance lifestyle brand. The new collection features a slew of snazzy pieces, including coats, blazers, trousers, jeans and more, all crafted with innovative designs, materials and techniques.

Reserve Bar

Della Vite Prosecco

Supermodel Cara Delevigne, along with her two sisters Poppy and Chloe, have finally debuted their vegan-friendly Della Vite Prosecco in the U.S. Both available for purchase on ReserveBar, the brand’s Prosecco Treviso DOC ($25) and Prosecco Superiore DOCG ($30) are sustainably made from handpicked grapes at a solar-powered winery.


Status Between Pro Triple Driver True Wireless Earbuds

We’ve long been fans of Status Audio for their high-end products, which they sell at surprisingly — shockingly, even — affordable prices. We’ve had a pair of their over-ear cans that has lasted us years at this point, so we have no problem recommending these very sleek-looking true wireless ‘buds as well.


LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema

We absolutely recommend getting a big TV, especially as more movies debut on streaming services. But when we say “big TV,” we’re talking 75 to 100 inches. On the other hand, when LG says “big TV,” they’re talking up to 325 inches (over 27 feet) of 8K resolution that weighs over 2,000 pounds. That’s what you get with the high-end version of the brand’s new DVLED TVs (that’s direct-view LED); CNET has most of the details if you want to know what that means. As you can expect, these are “if you have to ask you can’t afford it” home cinemas. Full pricing for the various models hasn’t been announced, but the aforementioned top-of-the-line screen will reportedly go for $1.7 million.

The Personal Popper by W&P

With the exception of some hard-to-find and very expensive high-end options, microwave popcorn tastes like chemicals and is generally pretty gross. Which is why we’ve always opted instead for real kernels, popped in oil in a big, sturdy pot over a flame — until recently, that is. Not too long ago, we happened upon collapsible, microwave-safe silicone bowl just like this one, which allows you to simply drop in some kernels of your choosing and nuke it for a couple minutes. No mess, faster than the stove-top method, and with no weird-ass chemical taste speak of. Highly recommended.
