New & Noteworthy Releases


Outerknown x FairEnds Caps
Sustainable surf brand Outerknown has teamed up with Californian-made hat brand FairEnds to produce a collection of organic cotton caps. Made up of three styles — the Ball Cap, the Farm Cap and the Happy Farm Cap — the release is made in the USA from organic cotton and each cap costs just shy of $50. Outerknown embroidery adorns the crown of each style colors range from plum and honey to navy and black. With sustainable materials and ethical manufacturing, it’s hard to fault these caps. — John Zientek

Christopher Ward C5 Malvern 595
At just 5.95mm thick, Christopher Ward’s latest timepiece is one of the thinnest mechanical watches you can get under a grand. It packs a proven, hand-winding movement from ETA and comes with two brilliant minimalist dial options: one in a shimmering opalin white and the other in slate gray. The watch comes standard on a leather strap, but for an extra $95 you can spec it with a steel mesh bracelet. — Andrew Connor

Belstaff Trialmaster Evo Jacket
70 years ago Belstaff released its iconic Trialmaster jacket, a light waxed-cotton jacket with four front pockets and a buckle-tab collar. In the brand’s latest Origins collection, the classic jacket is updated with technical fabrics. It is cut from waterproof and breathable stretch nylon, and features heat-sealed seams, weatherproof zippers, back vents and, of course, four front pockets. Available in slate green and black, the jacket costs $795 and exemplifies the new trend of functional-yet-stylish city-to-mountain apparel. — John Zientek

Ventev Powercell 6010+ Power Bank
This power bank by Ventev is unique for two reasons. One, it has a built-in Lightning cable to charge your iPhone, which is a fairly-rare-yet-not-totally-unheard-of feature. And two, it also has foldable AC prongs built directly into it, so you can plug the power bank directly into the wall to recharge it. It’s super convenient — one less charging cable to worry about — and it’s actually pretty rare to find in a power bank. — Tucker Bowe

Good Things Glycerin Soap
Industrial designer Jasper Morrison’s take on everyday glycerin soap is fantastic to behold. The block of clear, unscented soap comes as a large slab that can be broken into four smaller bars as needed. With nothing extra (dyes, fragrances, etc.), there’s plenty of room for an overabundance of attractive, minimalist design. A great way to start your day in the shower or wash away a long day. — Nick Caruso

2018 Polaris RZR RS-1
This week, Polaris announced a major update to its high-performance side-by-side lineup with the RZR RS-1. It’s not the brand’s first single-seater model, but it is the first Polaris single-seater to be given legitimate power and serious running gear, compliments of the 110 horsepower engine and suspension setup borrowed from the much bigger, beefier RZR XP1000. — Bryan Campbell

They’re available in three different sizes, four different colors (pink, gray, white and mint green) and come in four different textures. — Andrew Connor

Herschel Supply Co. Jackets and Travel Duffel
Herschel’s spring collection of jackets proves that it isn’t just a bag company anymore. Each coat is composed of a blend of polyester and cotton and finished with a durable water-resistant finish to allow for all-weather wear. Additionally, Herschel released a svelte travel bag called the Winslow. The Winslow may look like a duffel, but it’s actually a garment bag and includes a trolley sleeve, an integrated hanger bracket and a roll-out garment cover. — Tanner Bowden

Classic Jackets: $140+Winslow Travel Duffel: $120


Priority Bicycles Classic Plus NeverFlat
Priority Bicycles originally designed the Classic Plus to be a user-friendly cruiser that never (or at least very rarely) needs maintenance. Now Priority is giving the bike another upgrade that doubles down on this mission: airless tires. The tires come from Nexo, and while they look just like regular road bike tires, they’re puncture-resistant, don’t require a pump and are tested for more than 3,000 miles of use. — Tanner Bowden
