stuff we drool about

December 2019 Essentials

We are back again this month with a roundup of products that caught out attention. We are constantly on the prowl for the coolest stuff, travel essentials for life on the road, new smooth and stylish fashion pieces, new adventure ready gear, new tech stuff and accessories for your everyday carry. Here are a just few of our favorites for this month. Product details below.



Designed in collaboration with BD Athlete Joe Grant, the Distance Pack is built for fast and light mountain adventures and transcends barriers with its hybrid design that includes vest-inspired suspension for running, and a unique feature set that allows you to carry the appropriate gear while navigating intricate mountain terrain.




The portable, personal EDC fire pit that adapts to any fire. Load it up with charcoal or wood, light the fire, and let the wind-guarding design maximize your experience while enhancing your safety.




The North Face Summit L5 Futurelight Jacket defies expectations with the highest level of durable, breathable-waterproof protection, allowing you to defy the mountain like never before. Available now in four styles.




These notebooks are resistant to basically everything except fire. Built from synthetic, waterproof and tearproof paper, they can stand up to the gnarliest conditions you can drum up.




Onewheel, the self-balancing one-wheeled electric skateboard has just gotten smaller and more affordable! The new Onewheel Pint has several new, refined features that make it more practical and easy to ride. This thing goes up hill and down, off-road, and basically rides like a snowboard. It will surely add some fun and cut down on your commute time.




Keep a strong, lightweight, and durable length of cord on you at all times. This keychain comes in a clever knot of paracord that looks cool and wonít weigh your keys down, so you can carry it with you wherever you go and deploy it with ease.




Guppie is a hard-working carabiner tool with dozens of everyday uses. The adjustable wrench jaw opens to 1/2-inch so you can use it for all kinds of light repair and assembly jobs. It also features a high-carbon stainless steel blade, and a removable bit carrier is also a high-intensity LED light.




The Hammerhead Pro HD sled is a serious sledding machine. Take the sport of sledding to the extreme using Hammerheadís patented stainless-steel leaf spring steering system, featuring polycarbonate and HDPE skis. 




A pen is a fundamental piece of EDC gear. The Stilwell is small in size, but punches well above its weight class. With its minimal form, it will easily ride in your pocket all day, but when itís time to do work the Stilwell is all business.




The third exploration in Tokyo Design Studioís Reveal series, the R_C4 takes a fresh perspective on New Balanceís rich outdoor heritage. This latest release is packed with outdoor tech including a CORDURA Tracefiber upper, a combination ENCAP REVEAL and ABZORB midsole with superior cushioning and compression, and a lugged VIBRAM outsole. 




For 20 years Luminox has made watches that pass the test of special forces, police and fire departments and professional divers around the world. Luminox watches are Swiss-built, made to be used and abused, and include a lume that glows unaided for up to 25 years. 




The WESN titanium milled quick release keychain is milled out of 2 individual pieces of titanium and heat treated to last a lifetime. Sleek design to keep your keychain low profile, but still functions as it should.




This special, limited-edition knife and Everyday Carry (EDC) kit was designed in collaboration with the James Brand. The kit comes in a weatherproof case with weatherproof zippers and holds a James + AETHER-branded Moleskine notebook and limited-edition pen and knife, both with a diamond-patterned grip for ease of use.
