New & Noteworthy Releases


Adidas Ultraboost Laceless LTD Shoes
The latest update on Adidas’ ever-popular Ultraboost shoes are these laceless reflective kicks. The Primeknit upper eliminates the need for laces thanks to a sock-like feel and reflects light for early morning or evening runs. The continental sole means you’ll still have traction, no matter the running conditions. Available in Europe as of Jan. 1 and in the U.S. starting February 1. — Meg Lappe

2018 Dell XPS 13 Laptop
Dell hasn’t massively redesigned its XPS 13 laptop for a few years and, on the surface, the 2018 edition doesn’t appear to have bucked that trend. It’s slightly thinner and lighter than past models. It’s faster, too, able to be configured with Intel’s 8th-gen i7 processor. But the real difference is that it’s adopted the 2-in-1 and touchscreen design of last year’s well-reviewed Dell XPS 13 2-in-1. — Tucker Bowe

TaylorMade M3 and M4 Drivers
For years, there’s been conventional roundedness to the bulge of golf drivers. (The idea was that the shape of the club face would change the spin of a golf ball to compensate for any off-center strikes.) But now, thanks to lots of data and serious engineering, TaylorMade is challenging that convention with its latest collection of woods. The M3 and M4 drivers are each unique, but share a new club face feature called Twist Face, which adjusts the curvature of the club in an entirely new way. The technology is based on a study of hundreds of thousands of shots made by players at all levels and is designed to increase shot accuracy. — Tanner Bowden

Hive View
The Hive View is a new stylish smart security camera, designed by Yves Béhar, who also designed the August Home Smart Lock. The camera has a unique stand and is available in colors like “white and champagne gold” or “black and brushed copper.” It’s detachable with a built-in lithium ion battery, in case you want to temporarily move the camera around your house. (The battery only lasts about 90 minutes.) As for specs, the Hive View has 130-degree wide angle lens; it’s capable of 1080p live-streaming; and it can see in the dark for a distance of up to 16 feet. — Tucker Bowe

Heddles Denim Wash
Heddles recently launched a new denim detergent that’s perfect for jean freaks. Its a mild, plant-based formula that won’t affect your fades when used in a gentle, cold water wash, meaning there’s no need to go to extremes to keep those jeans clean and intact. — Andrew Connor

Ibex End of Trail Sale
Save 40-60%: Now, through quite possibly the end of Ibex’s domain, everything is 40 to 60% off. Known for its smart use of merino wool, Ibex has created sweaters, jackets and pants, all from a variety of blends of flannel and organic cotton. Merino wool can help regulate body temperature, wicks away moisture and isn’t scratchy or itchy, making it an ideal fabric for most outdoor adventures, as well as daily activities.

We’re digging the Gallatin Straight wool flannel pant, the Terrain Jacket hemp and organic cotton blend full zip, and the Pursuit Trench made entirely from merino wool.

Just one thing to note — everything is final sale. — Meg Lappe

DMOS Stealth Snow Shovel
Save 10%: Now that the entire eastern half of the United States is in the grips of snow storm Grayson, it’s once again apparent that having the right tools to cope with the weather is paramount. When the snow does finally stop, you’re going to need to get on with your life, and eventually, you’ll need to dig your car out. The DMOS Stealth shovel is the only shovel you’ll need.

Compact, lightweight, durable (it’s made of 3.3-lbs of aircraft grade aluminum), and easily storable, the DMOS Stealth is a shovel you can keep in your car all winter long, knowing it’ll help get you out of the snow and on with your life. For the next seven days, over at Huckberry, you can save 10 percent on what has been referred to as the “official war hammer of trail-ready snow removal tools.” — Bryan Campbell

Dyson Big Ball Multifloor Canister Vacuum
Save $200: Right now Dyson’s feature-packed Big Ball Multifloor Canister Vacuum has been marked down to just $300 (40% off its MSRP). For your money, you get loads practical improvements that set it apart from your standard vacuum. It self-rights when it begins to topple, it features a button on the handle that allows you to engage the brush head (you don’t have to reach down to engage it like on most vacuums) and its compact, ball-shaped built makes it easily maneuverable. Perhaps best of all, the bagless canister for collecting dust and debris ejects its contents into the trash at the press of a button, so you don’t need to use your hands to clean it out. — Andrew Connor

XTRATUF Rubber Boots
Save up to 29%: When it comes to choosing any piece of technical gear, look to the pros — chances are, if they’re using it, it probably works. And while rubber boots may not seem like an overly technical item worth deliberating over, the rule holds true. XTRATUF all-weather boots are designed in Alaska and put to use by the commercial fishermen who take to the hazardous waters of the Bering Sea as part of the regular nine-to-five. For them, functionality isn’t an option but a necessity.

Even those who aren’t working deckhands will appreciate the rugged practicality of XTRATUF boots. Available in high and low profiles, each boot is constructed with a triple-dipped neoprene foam and rubber design that’s guaranteed to be 100% waterproof and an antimicrobial cooling liner. The boots also feature a proprietary lug pattern on the outsole that meets the highest standards of slip resistance. Right now various models of XTRATUF boots are on sale for up to 29% off at Huckberry — just in time for winter’s onslaught of ice and snow. — Tanner Bowden

Save 53%: The C7P is LG’s flagship OLED TV. It has the same stunning 4K picture quality as the brand’s high-end W7 OLED, just without the wallpaper-thin design and extremely high price tag. We also selected it as one of the best OLED TVs in 2017. It’s an excellent TV to consider if you’re looking to make the jump to OLED, and eBay is currently offering a 55-inch C7P for $1,399 — that’s roughly $1,600 less than what it normally was going for earlier this year, and almost $400 less than what it’s going for on Amazon ($1,797) and Best Buy ($1,800). — Tucker Bowe

Introducing the PATROL Sweatshirt
It’s simple, modern and here just in time for winter. We’ve sweated the fit and feel of it with a best of both worlds result: you’ll love the not-too-heavy wearability yet not-too-light feel. It sports just the right amount of warmth to be worn alone (underneath a shirt-jacket or insulated coat) or over a t-shirt for colder weather. We’ve also designed the PATROL logo with a tone-on-tone effect that pops enough to show your support without being a walking billboard.

Made from a premium tri-blend material and printed with water-based inks. And of course, the PATROL sweatshirt is 100% American-made.
