Today in Gear: March 4, 2016

Indian Motorcycle’s newest bike, sneakers made of a new material (hint: Merino), an all-new action camera and more.


Good morning and happy Friday. Freedom, R&R and a good bourbon are mere hours away — all the more reason to charge through today like a champ. Start with a quick read of what’s happening in the world of gear: today we’re looking at Indian Motorcycle’s newest bike, sneakers made of a new material (hint: Merino), an all-new action camera and more.

Filson Uplander Boot


There’s little need for explanation — this is a Filson boot. It’s rugged, ultimately durable, and looks impeccable. They’re water repellant, feature a removable cork insole and will possibly outlast you.

Ricoh WG-M2 Waterproof Action Camera


Ricoh’s newest action camera sports a 204-degree wide-angle lens. Which is wide. It measures up at roughly 2 x 1 x 3 inches and weighs less than 5 ounces. Which is tiny. It’ll withstand drops from over six feet, depths of 65 feet and temperatures as low as 14°F. Which is impressive. Capture 8MP stills and 4K video at 30 fps; control the camera with oversized buttons or with the app; transfer your files to a computer via wi-fi. Which is awesome.

And, frankly, we can’t wait to introduce our feet so they can fall in love and live comfortably ever after.

Spring & Summer Collection by Nau


Nau’s spring and summer line is a smaller capsule focused on essential apparel — the things you want to wear as temperatures rise, with useful technical elements to boot. The entire new collection compliments itself: wear the Anti-Dot short-sleeve shirt in the afternoon, throw on the Introvert Blazer in the evening and continue mixing and matching to your closet’s content.

Ever need to charge a smartphone five times in a row after surviving multiple falls from ridiculous heights?

And it’s waterproof. So, like, whatever you’re up to and whatever happens to your body, at least you’ll always have a charged phone.
