Today in Gear: October 14, 2014

Today in Gear: waterproof formal attire by Samuelshon, HTC’s handheld camera, a new collab from Sperry Top-Sider and Barneys New York, a siege-proof dock lock and more.



Haven Lock
Many modern smart locks are ineffective because they serve to strengthen deadbolts, which can be outsmarted. The Haven Lock is different. Using your home’s structure for support, it sits flat at the door’s base. It links with any smartphone or wearable device and, using wi-fi and Bluetooth, can tell if it’s friend or foe knocking. Thieves with siege weapons couldn’t break through this. kickstarter.com

HTC RE Camera
It’s not a periscope. HTC’s new hand-held camera is designed to go everywhere you do. Featuring one button, the RE camera easily takes sharp photos and videos and allows for time-lapse and slow motion. It all gets streamed back to your smartphone. And it’s waterproof, so you can take it places that would land your phone in a baggie of dry rice. $199

Samuelshon Performance Suits
Storms can and will happen at outdoor formal affairs; like in the boy scouts, always be prepared. Samuelshon’s Performance Weatherproof Suits are designed with Loro Piana’s Rain System wool. Lightweight and flexible, the suave fabric breaks wind and water. Disclaimer: it won’t keep hair dry. $1,195+

Plumb Goods “A Collection of Paper Options” Notebook
Designed by artist Jason Polan, this paperback notebook features 12 hand-drawn patterns that alternate from page to page. The 96 pages are lined in a variety of ways: diagonally, vertically, horizontally and more. It’s meant to inspire; get out there and jot it all down. $16

TORRAIN Magazine Pocket Wallet
Are you up to speed on Cambodian news? Here’s your chance: TORRAIN’s new wallet is made from used pages of the country’s newspapers or magazines. Finished with a recycled melted plastic laminate, the wallets come in three designs: checkered magazine, magazine stripe and newsprint. And it’s for a good cause: partnered with Friends-International, a portion of the proceeds go to aiding marginalized youth and their families. $24

Sperry Top-Sider x Barneys New York A/O Boat Chukka
The latest collaboration between Sperry Top-Sider and Barneys New York is a boat shoe-chukka lovechild. Each shoe features a leather and wool upper body, camouflaged soles, and rawhide laces. Featuring Sperry’s signature wet/dry traction and coming in three colors, they can adapt to any environment. $175
