New & Noteworthy Releases
Leatherman Wave +
For Leatherman’s 25th anniversary, it decided to up the ante on its best-selling multi-tool. With 16 tools all ready built-in, a new set of pliers with removable and replaceable wire cutters brings the total number up to 17. It’s still easy to open, lightweight, and covered by a 25-year warranty. — Meg Lappe
Legacy Overland, a 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser HJ-45
Upgraded and modernized vintage overlanders seem to be a dime-a-dozen these days. What’s really rare, though, is a modernized project that keeps it classy, tasteful and still holds on to the vintage flair that makes the four-wheeler special in the first place. And the latest masterpiece from Legacy Overland, a 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser HJ-45 pick-up, strikes that perfect balance, between old-world charm and modern performance and reliability. — Bryan Campbell
Known for its lightweight and high-quality snowshoes, Fimbulvetr announced its newest shoes at Outdoor Retailer this year. The TRAILR is a more nimble snowshoe with the addition of Grivory and a narrower design. Grivory, about 65% glass fibers, is sturdy and stiff, yet lightweight. More commonly seen as a metal replacement in car engines and propellers, the addition of it allows the smaller design to perform as well as larger models of the past do. You’ll move faster, and not be held up by snowballing that gets caught in the crampons, thanks to the anti-snowballing integration. Look for it come winter 2018. — Meg Lappe
100% Speedcraft Air
When Peter Sagan signed with 100%, we made a pretty safe assumption that some crazy tech would quickly follow suit. That’s exactly the case with the new Speedcraft Air. The new shades are designed with a nosepiece that features magnets that stick to the skin. The magnets pull open the air passages in the nose and make it easier for Sagan to breathe while racing. We’re pretty sure these won’t make you as fast as a world champ, but they may increase your efficiency a bit. — AJ Powell
Zenith Cronometro Tipo CP-2 Flyback in Bronze
Zenith has just released a new version of one of its best vintage reissues in recent memory: the Tipo CP-2 Flyback, a recreation of a chronograph worn by the Italian military during the 1960s. This new iteration retains the basic construction — it has a chunky case design and a rotating bezel and a high-beat El Primero chronograph movement ticking at 36,000 mph — but is made from bronze, a metal that’s becoming increasing trendy in watch design. — Andrew Connor
Allagash Brewing Company Map 40
Maine’s Allagash Brewing Company teamed up with Portland coffee roaster, Speckled Ax, for its second run of Map 40 — a Trappist-style stout brewed with cold-brewed coffee, chocolate malts and roasted barley. Available nationwide this month. — Jack Seemer
Il Bussetto Passport Holder
Save 30%: If you do any amount of international travel, it’s worth investing in a decent passport holder. It’ll serve as your wallet when oversea, holding your passport, credit cards and cash. This option from Il Bussetto features four card slots, a center strap and two canvas-lined pockets to secure documents. It’s available in dark brown, light brown and black and has a contrast interior. — John Zientek
Timex x Todd Snyder Ironman Digital Watch
Save 30%: If you’re into throwback digital watches, don’t miss out on the Timex x Todd Snyder Ironman watch. This reissue was first developed in 1984 in partnership with the Ironman triathlon and features 200-meter water resistance, an Indiglo night light, a 100-hour chronograph, a 99-lap counter and a 24-hour countdown timer, among other things. The contemporary model features an enlarged face and dial but is still just as lightweight and durable as the original. — John Zientek
Samsung QLED 4K Televisions
Save up to 45% off: The Super Bowl is coming up and Samsung is slashing the prices on all its beautiful QLEDs (up to 45-percent off!). For a limited time, you can get its 65-inch Q7F for $2,199 — that’s $1,800 off its original price and $300 cheaper than it was on Black Friday. Or you can get its 75-inch Q7F for $3,299 — you save $2,700, which is $200 cheaper than it was going for on Black Friday. — Tucker Bowe
Logitech Wireless Performance Combo MX800
Save $78: Amazon is offering a one-day-only sale on Logitech computer accessories, including up to 80-percent off wireless mice, gaming headsets and keyboards. The deal that really caught our eye is a wireless mouse and keyboard (backlit) combo for just $92 — Logitech’s website is selling the same MX800 combo for $170. (The Amazon Gold Box page with the full list of Logitech deals can be found here.) — Tucker Bowe
Monoprice Apple-Certified Lightning Cables
Save 30%: Apple sells its standard USB cables for $19. Fortunately, Monoprice’s Apple-certified Lightning cables come in at a lot more less, usually going for under $10. And at the moment you get them for even less. Stag a few so you don’t have to worry about buying another one anytime soon. — Tucker Bowe
Arc’teryx Outdoor Essentials
Save 25%: It’s no secret that Arc’teryx makes some of the best outdoor gear available, but the Canadian brand’s price tags tend to reflect that fact. And the truth is, that price tag tends to be out of range for many outdoor adventurers. Right now though, The House has a host of outdoor essentials from Arc’teryx for 25% off. We’re fans of the Kyanite Hoody and the Fortrez Fleece, but there is a host of other fleeces, tech tees and hoodies available. — AJ Powell
Winter Tire Snow Chains
Save up to 35%: When the temeperature drops, the weather turns and snow starts to fall, winter tires are a must. But if you live where the specialized rubber just isn’t enough, upgrading your winter tires with snow chains is the way to go. Now, on Amazon, save up to 35% on a set of snow chains — Bryan Campbell
