Good morning, and welcome to the latest edition of This Week in Gear — your single-shot serving of an entire week’s worth of killer new gear pulled from our weekday editions of Today in Gear. Bookmark it to peruse over Sunday football and start your Monday completely up to speed. Here’s to another fantastic week.
Victorinox Fall/Winter 2015 Collection
One-layer weather is on its way out, and if you’ve gotten rusty on your bundling-up game, Victorinox’s new collection is an easy solution. Each upper-body item in the collection allows the wearer to “snap in” Victorinox’s new Matterhorn Utility Vest, making for a layering solution that doesn’t restrict movement and reduces friction between layers. This leaves no excuse for wearing two flannel shirts on top of one another.
Logitech CREATE iPad Pro Keyboard
While we’re not too keen on the new iPad Pro, diehard Apple devotees will find a lot to love with Logitech’s new keyboard for the device, which, thanks to its Smart Connector, never needs to be charged.
DJI Zenmuse X5 and X5R 4K
As much as we love the GoPro, DJI’s new drone-based camera is an undeniable step forward for the burgeoning sector: the 3-axis gimbal features a larger micro four-thirds sensor and allows for interchangeable lenses.
Firestone Destination A/T Special Edition
Firestone have released a new special edition of their popular Destination A/T tire. It features a laser-etched sidewall for a unique style.
Maker Monthly is simple: creative supplies for creative minds, delivered to your doorstep monthly.
Bison Made No. 2 Belt
A belt can be the perfect complement to any outfit and Bison Made’s new No. 2 Belt goes with just about everything.
Sony A7S II Camera
Sony’s full-frame A7S II, the sixth and last of the revamped Mark II line, boasts a 12.2MP sensor, a new 169-point autofocus system and sensor-shift stabilization. But perhaps most importantly: it records video in 4K at high frame rates. Unfortunately, as noted by CNET, the updated body will rule out backwards compatibility with your current accessories.
Alex Mill Horizontal Donegal Shirt
Don’t fall back on duller shades of gray for the shift into autumn. Alex Mill’s Horizontal Donegal Shirt livens up your typical transitional shades with a more bluish hue, patch pockets and burnt horn buttons.
Montblanc BMW 7 Series Line
Founders Project Pam
Little is known about Founders’ upcoming release yet, save for what we can see on the label: “BLACK INDIA PALE ALE AGED IN MAPLE SYRUP BOURBON BARRELS.” Count us in.
Hard Graft Wild Phone Case in Tan Leather
Hard Graft’s best-selling iPhone 6 and 6S case is now available in vegetable-tanned Tuscan leather.
TRNK Hand-Screened Celestial Star Chart
Football is great, but your living space should aspire more to Neil DeGrasse Tyson than to a Fathead.
DSPTCH Lum-Tec Special Edition Combat B25 43mm Watch
DSPTCH have officially entered the arms race to occupy the real estate on your wrist. Their entry comes in the form of a Lum-Tec wristwatch with a Miyota OS20J movement. Its sapphire crystal features an anti-reflective coating and its case back is constructed of stainless steel. Water-resistant up to 200 meters, it comes with two different watch straps — a green and a black, both with matching hardware. Limited-numbered run of 50.
OLIVERS The Merino Pullover
Merino wool is the perfect fall fabric and OLIVERS’ new Merino Pullover is the perfect silhouette to utilize it.

This new utility knife from Ragged Mountain Knife Works features a one-piece construction milled from D2 steel.
Frameri x EnChroma Sunglasses
Not only do Frameri’s new sunglasses look great, they also help people affected by colorblindness to see in vivid color.
West Elm Industrial Concrete Side Table
West Elm’s modern concrete side table is just the right look to cap a couch or occupy the space next to your bed.
Tern & Xtracycle Cargo Node
Tern and Xtracycle have teamed up to launch an all-new folding cargo bike — creating the most versatile cargo bike ever.
The Ducati 1200 R
Ducati has just released their most powerful naked bike ever: the Monster 1200 R. Using a tweaked version of the engine found in the 1200 S, the R puts out 160 horsepower at 9,250 rpm and 97 lb-ft of torque at 7,750 rpm. The power bump comes curtesy of new pistons, throttle bodies and larger exhaust. The 1200 R also gets an updated suspension by Ohlins, larger brakes, a new steel frame and increased ride height to allow for more aggressive cornering. Ultimately, this should be the fastest, most advanced Monster in the model’s 22-year run.
Wahoo Fitness ELEMNT GPS Cycling Computer
Wahoo’s upcoming cycling computer ensures a simultaneously focused and connected riding experience. It syncs with cell phones in all the expected ways (notifying riders of calls, texts and emails), tracks and displays distance, speed and more, and is compatible with apps like Strava and MapMyRide. Read more on Wahoo’s press release.
K-EDGE Camera Mount
K-EDGE’s new camera mounts are machined from billet aluminum, attach to your handlebars and work with any camera that uses the GoPro interface so you can capture your next big air without worrying about wobbly footage.
ZJ-Marley Magnetic Vent Cell Phone Car Mount
If you’ve yet to upgrade to a connected car, you should at least have a mount for your phone; ZJ-Marley’s on sale for super cheap, leaving you with no excuse not to have one.
Harry’s Daily Face Wash
Shaving is just one part of overall facial hygiene, so it makes sense for Harry’s to release a face wash. And they went all in with a foaming solution with volcanic rock sediment (for exfoliation), aloe, coconut water and more.
Eagle Creek EC Lync
Eagle Creek’s limited run (400 units) of bags is an update to the EC Lync line, which offered a highly versatile bag with myriad carrying options. The new, lightweight bags feature upgraded, durable materials and ripstops, along with several additional pockets. Available January 1.
Amazon Fire TV
First Samsung, now Amazon — looks like everyone’s beating Apple to the punch these days. The new Fire TV box is Amazon’s preemptive answer to the upcoming Apple TV update, with support for 4K Ultra HD (unlike Apple) and high-performance games, a quadcore processor and expandable storage via MicroSD card — not to mention robust voice control by way of Amazon’s Alexa terminal and a bevy of cable channel-viewing options for cord cutters.
iRobot Roomba 980
Let’s face it, nobody really has time to vacuum during the week and it is the last way you want to spend your time on weekends. And if you travel a lot, it’s even easier to let home cleanliness fall to the wayside. The Roomba 980 is here to help. It connects to your in-home wi-fi and can be controlled remotely from an app. It also learns the layout of your home so it can clean in the most efficient way possible. When it is low on battery, it automatically finds its charging base for hassle-free charging. You’ll still have to cook for yourself, but it is one step closer to the robot butler of your dreams.
