Today in Gear: Blue Microphones’ new Mo-Fi headphones, Shwood Acetate & Stone Fifty/Fifty sunglasses, the Timbuk2 x Red Hook Crit Travel Backpack, a modular kayak and more.



Blue Mo-Fi Headphones
Mo-Fi stands for “true mobile high fidelity”, and that’s what Blue Microphones’ new headphone line delivers. They’re the first headphones to combine a built-in audiophile amplifier with ultra-premium drivers. The multi-jointed headband and innovative ear cups maximize comfort and forbid sound quality deterioration, no matter what device it’s hooked up with. And the battery life is exceptional. $350

Timbuk2 x Red Hook Crit Travel Backpack
Ultra-light and loaded with compartments, this Timbuk2 and Red Hook Crit collaboration is ideal for bikers and was designed for racing. With a tuck-away shoulder strap, the ripstop nylon backpack easily converts into a duffel bag. The bag comes in red and black, and is water resistant with reflective elements. $99

Desktop Chair v2
Tablets are often most useful in the upright position. The Desktop Chair props up your tablet with premium cross-grained and hydraulically hot-pressed wood, which ensures durability. It’s also accommodating to all tablets, no matter their size or shape. $60

Shwood Acetate & Stone Fifty/Fifty Collection
This sunglass collection is a collaboration of opposites: polished black acetate and coarse white stone. Available in four silhouettes, the light/dark juxtaposition adds flair to some already natty shades. $195

SNAP Modular Kayak
The SNAP is a high-performance and versatile ocean kayak that breaks apart, for transporting and storing, and then snaps back together. Made of polyethylene, it features foldable backrests, upholders, contoured foot braces and, for fishermen, integrated rod holders. The compact kayak comes in a few sizes (it can fit between one to four people depending how many sections you use) with a year warranty. $192+

Overland Empire Enamel Mug
For campers and outdoorsmen, this is an ideal hot beverage container. The black and white mugs feature the OE elephant and (as the name suggests) have a protective enamel coating. Pre-order to receive an already affordable mug at a discounted rate. $15+
