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:  a new line of YETI tees and headwear, a Parks Project x Igloo collab and a Noah collection just in time for summer.


Everlane Denim Chore Jacket

Everlane’s new Denim Chore Jacket combines two of the most classic and iconic styles for a piece of outerwear that’s slightly vintage-inspired but updated with contemporary details. Made from cotton with a hint of stretch and available in two classic colors, the jacket is designed to be your most faithful spring companion, keeping you warm (but not too warm) and stylish.

Rowing Blazers

Rowing Blazers x Umbro

The question isn’t whether we’ve all been waiting for the return of Umbro, the iconic 90s soccer outfitter, as the answer is obviously yes; it’s whether you’ll be able to rock the outrageous kit that Rowing Blazers has come up with to announce the brand’s return into the sportswear conversation. The collection includes soccer jerseys, shorts and coach jackets in four designs: a rainbow croquet stripe, a blue and green Gordon tartan plaid, a navy and red zig-zag and an optical illusion check pattern. It’s all a bit much, yes, but maybe it’s just the thing we need after wearing grey sweats all year.


HOKA ONE ONE x Cotopaxi

The brainchild of HOKA ONE ONE and Cotopaxi, this colorful collab stars the Bata 16L Del Día, a lightweight, adventure-ready daypack, and also includes the Torrent 2, HOKA’s signature trail running shoe done up in an eye-catching, multicolor design. The shoe is already sold out on Cotopaxi’s website, but is currently in stock at REI.


Noah Surf

Surf in style this summer with Noah’s latest drop of surfing gear and accessories. The collection includes everything from wetsuits to surf-inspired tees and rugbys, and even actual surfboards from the brand, all of which are unfortunately sold out. If you plan on spending any time at the beach this summer but you’re not quite ready to get on a board, be sure to pick up a couple pairs of the brand’s swim trunks, which come in both solid colors and floral patterns. The trunks are made using the best nylon, and thought they’re designed with swimming and surfing in mind, they’re more than capable of accompanying you on hiking or climbing excursions, or just running around town. 


Madewell x Parks Project

April is Earth Month, so if you’re looking for a way to show your appreciation for Mother Earth, lend your support via Madewell’s most recent collaboration with Parks Project. The collaboration provides the perfect opportunity to show our National Parks a little extra love (especially after the garbage fire that was 2020) with purchases helping to support education, visitor programs, wildlife conservation and habitat restoration projects. Besides, you’re bound to get plenty of wear out of the t-shirts, hats and hoodies featuring retro-inspired graphics this summer, while the reusable water bottle and enamel mug will make great camping companions.


KOIO Men’s Retro Runner

“A seamless fusion of style and sustainability,” the Retro Runner from luxury leather sneaker brand KOIO is available in four handsome colorways, all crafted with hand-buffed, luxuriously smooth, vegetable-tanned leather and featuring an ortholite insole for unbeatable comfort.


YETI Apparel and Gear

Just in time for sunnier weather, YETI has dropped a line of new shirts and headwear. Featured in the collection are short-sleeve tees and UPF-50 sun shirts donning various warm-weather-themed designs like tropical-colored shirts with pineapples and fish lounging in YETI coolers.


Nathan QuickSqueeze Lite 12oz Insulated Handheld

Nathan’s new QuickSqueeze Insulated hydration flask is a grip-free, lightweight bottle designed with double-wall construction to keep fluids cooler during your longer runs. Ergonomically shaped to fit comfortably in your hand, simply squeeze the flask for quick hydration while on the move. Plus, it’s the first handheld bottle with a flat bottom so it’s able to stand upright on its own for an easier fill-up.


TUMI x McLaren Collection

The just-released bag collaboration between McLaren and Tumi is comprised of nine pieces, all featuring the carmaker’s signature Papaya colorway and CCX6 carbon-fiber accents. Among the bags: The Aero International Expandable 4 Wheel Carry-On, a hardshell crafted partially from Tegris (a thermoplastic composite found in race cars) and featuring an interior compression strap inspired by the six-point racing harnesses found in McLaren’s track models, including the limited-edition Senna GTR.

Mr. Porter

Mr. Porter Golf Collection

Why is it so hard to find a good golfing kit? Is it because you have to choose between dated brands and newcomers that are trying a little too hard to appeal to the youths? Is it because all the good sportswear designers are working on other sports? The answer doesn’t matter much anymore, because Mr Porter’s in-house brand has just delivered a golf collection for the ages, running the gamut of pants, polos, sweaters, jackets, and even a nice hat and pair of gloves. You won’t stick out like a sore thumb, and you won’t look like a geezer, either.


Sotheby’s Air Force 1 Collection

On Wednesday, Sotheby’s unveiled 20 Nike Air Force 1 sneakers available for purchase through Sotheby’s Buy Now Sneaker Shop, including some of the rarest and highly coveted editions of the classic shoe. Included in the shop are AF1 Lows made exclusively for 10-time NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony, a pair of privately released white-on-whites made in celebration of JAY-Z’s 40/40 Club and LeBron James’ “Four Horsemen” design.

Parks Project

Igloo x Parks Project Recycled Playmate Elite: Feel the Earth Breathe

Explore those wild and not-so-wild places with Igloo’s latest collaboration with Parks Project. Inspired by our public lands, this Playmate Elite is the world’s first cooler made with post-consumer recycled resin as part of Igloo’s Ecocool collection. It’s spacious enough for thirty cans of your favorite 12 =oz. beverage, and a portion of the proceeds benefit the National Parks Conservation Association. Finally, you can look cool and keep your things cool, too.


Rumpl Subpar Parks Collection

As much as we’d like to believe everyone finds the same amount of joy and appreciation for our national parks as we do, that’s not always the case. So sustainable blanket brand Rumpl teamed up with Amber Share of Subpar Parks, who pairs real negative reviews of national parks with lovely illustrations of those parks, to transform those reviews and images into the brand’s durable, crazy warm Original Puffy Blankets. Unfortunately, the blankets have all sold out, but we can still enjoy their very honest reviews.
