TIG-gear-patrol-Allen-Edmonds-Whitney-Collection


Allen Edmonds Whitney Collection
The Whitney collection from Allen Edmonds takes everything that made the Wisconsin company synonymous with American business and updates it into a series of three fashion-forward bluchers. The classic 65 last (think: Park Avenue Oxford) has been widened at the ball and toe on each model, while enlarged brogueing details boast an air of casual polish. — Henry Phillips

TIG-gear-patrol-Samsung-SSD-860


Samsung 860 Pro and 860 Evo SSDs
If you were thinking about upgrading your computer from a hard drive to an SSD, you probably were considering one of Samsung’s 850 SSDs. They’re fast and dependable, and because of that, they’re also really popular. Now, Samsung just released the next gen of those SSDs: the new 860 series. Consisting of the 860 Pro and 860 Evo (the latter being the budget option), both SSDs boast more consistent performance (due to their 64-layer 3D NAND as opposed to the 850 line’s 48-layer 3D NAND). The main difference between the 860 Pro and 860 Evo is that the former offers faster transfer speeds (due to its 3-bit MLC technology, versus the Evo’s 2-bit MLC). The 860 SSDs start at $95 (Evo) and $140 (Pro) and will be available this month. — Tucker Bowe

TIG-gear-patrol-HeyMat-2


Heymat Designer Industrial Doormats
It’s difficult to hype up a doormat, honestly. They’re seen when you enter and leave a home, and that’s about it — but that could make an important impression on guests. If you’re in the market for one, however, we recommend these doormats by Heymat. They’re beautiful, designed in Norway, and they’re durable enough to handle a lot of foot traffic. Plus, if they get too dirty, you can just toss them in the wash. — Tucker Bowe

For all your friends who continue to run in Nike Frees, the time has come for them to upgrade their cushion. Look for them on sale Feb 22 for $150. — Meg Lappe

DON-gear-patrol-Red-Wing-Cotton-Socks

These textured socks from Red Wing Heritage have a marled appearance and a flat-knit toe seam. Easy to care for, they’re a machine-washable cotton blend available in blue, rust and black colors.

Dainese


Dainese Harrison Leather Jacket
Save 30%: Motorcycle jackets that are fashion-forward tend to be useless against the elements and not offer any real protection. That’s where the Dainese Harrison leather jacket will keep you guessing. Its stylish four-pocket design and hand-dyed leather outer construction offer the look of an all-form-and-no-function jacket, but hidden underneath the shoulders and elbows is functional Pro-Shape Armor. There’s even a pocket in the back to accommodate a Dainese back protector. In addition to protection from impacts, the Harrison jacket also comes with a quilted thermal liner to keep out the wind chill when cruising down the road. This is one of Dainese’s top-tier jackets, so $240 off is a steal. — Bryan Campbell

CRKT


CRKT M16-01KS Folding Knife
Save $22: Designed by the late Kit Carson, the M16 line of tactical folding knives placed in the Top 10 Tactical Folders of the Decade by Blade Magazine. Having retired with the rank of Master Sergeant and as a member of the Cutlery Hall of Fame, Carson knew a thing or two about what makes a tactical folder great. That shows in the M16-01KS. The stainless steel blade features the Carson Flipper mechanism for easy blade actuation and doubles as a guard when open. The M16 line isn’t CRKT’s newest line, but it sure is one of the brand’s trustiest and today you can save 22 percent on the M16-01KS. — Bryan Campbell
