Pop and Lock

December 5, 2013 9:00 am

The best gifts, a wise and slightly selfish man once said, are the ones you buy for yourself.

So in that spirit of self-giving, we present the Gear Lab Pop-Up Shop, a playground of men’s gadgets, gear and more from our friends at Men’s Journal, opening today.

Conveniently located in River North, Gear Lab is basically a gift guide you can shop once the 5pm whistle blows.

The shop stocks the gamut of manly goods, from adventure to tech to style, all released in 2013.

Topping our list: an electric bike from Specialized that tops out at 28 MPH, the Weber Performer Platinum Grill and the A7 Wifi Speakers from Bowers & Wilkins.

Also on hand: A 2014 Indian Motorcycle Chief Vintage. And leather couches and flatscreens for lazing.

The pop-up shop is open every day until December 22nd and, yes, it’s also the perfect place to find a gift for your father, brother or son.

If you’re in the spirit.
