Good morning. In the northeastern Spanish village of Figueres, forensic experts have unearthed the remains of the artistic genius Salvador Dali, and discovered that his iconic “ten past ten” mustache, 28 years after his death, is still perfectly intact. Dali’s remains were dug up in order to conduct a paternity test; for years, a 61-year-old tarot card reader, seeking a piece of Dali’s vast estate, has claimed that her mother had an affair with Dali. Salvador, you dog!

What’s New, Now
Barebones Kitchen Cast Iron Set
Barebones Living is among the most exciting young brands we’ve seen in the outdoor sphere. The name says it all: their products are deliberately simple, free of puffery, timeless. And it shows in this cast iron cook set, containing a skillet, dutch oven, serving trivet, cleaning mesh and seasoning paste. It’ll last forever — but just in case something goes wrong, Barebones has you covered with a lifetime warranty.
Sonicare DiamondClean Smart Sonic Toothbrush and App
The Philips DiamondClean is no ordinary electric toothbrush. On top of having five cleaning modes and three intensities, this toothbrush connects to your phone via the Philips Sonicare app — like a personal trainer for your mouth. Using sensors on the brush, the smartphone app allows users to set such goals as healthier gums, ideal brushing pressure, and amount of time spent on each area of your mouth.

Tonke Fieldsleeper Custom Camper
Next time you’re slouching at your desk, slowly drifting off into La La Land, picture yourself in this thing: a custom camper handmade in Holland, set atop your choice of a Fiat Ducato, Volkswagen Crafter or Mercedes Sprinter. It can be detached from the vehicle’s bed and converted to a standalone bungalow on stilts, and comes in five interior configurations, all of which offer custom upholstery and cabinetry.
Tivoli Audio PAL BT GLO Bluetooth Speaker
The ’90s called. Tivoli Audio answered. The time had come for translucent gadgetry to grace the world once again. The PAL BT is Tivoli’s best-selling Bluetooth radio; now it comes in a limited edition clear-frost shell, backlit with multicolored LED lights. Great for getting the party started, or simply lighting the way home from your backcountry picnic.
Rimowa Topas Sport Multiwheel Electronic Tag Rolling Suitcase
One of Rimowa’s largest suitcases ever, the Topas Sport Multiwheel is essentially a rolling 100-liter trunk with a potentially revolutionary — and we never use that word lightly — electronic luggage tag system.
Priority Bicycles Continuum Onyx Edition
After the original silver Continuum sold out, Priority is now offering an Onyx edition. But the colorway isn’t the only thing that’s different: a front dynamo hub and reflective tires illuminate night rides without the need for batteries or recharging, while a rear USB-rechargeable light provides additional visibility. The components are top-notch, too, and since Priority employs a direct-to-consumer model, the Continuum is significantly cheaper than similar commuter bikes.
Ezra Arthur Medium Notebook
From the Gear Patrol Store: Call it want you want: notebook, journal, memo book, diary, logbook, ledger, portfolio, day book or scratch pad — this is what you have been looking for. This notebook from Ezra Arthur was hand-stitched and bound with full-grain premium Horween Chromexcel leather and constructed with Tomoe River paper, known for being the thinnest and highest-quality writing paper. It has a smooth texture that’s excellent for a variety of writing instruments, particularly fountain pens. It is ultra thin and ideal to reduce bulk yet resistant to bleedthrough and feathering.
