American Harvest Vodka Usually when we think of vodka we think of a certain debonair chap from overseas, or, of course, Russia. But what if the man who created a famous French vodka decided to create a new vodka right here in the U S of A?

American Harvest Vodka
Usually when we think of vodka we think of a certain debonair chap from overseas, or, of course, Russia. But what if the man who created a famous French vodka decided to create a new vodka right here in the U S of A? Wonder no more: American Harvest small batch vodka is made from American wheat on American soil and squirted into bottles in the middle of Idaho, which is in the middle of America. Shake it, stir it; who gives a damn? It’ll taste like delicious freedom any way you pour it. $24 ()
Thule-Round-Trip-Box-Gear-Patrol

Thule Round Trip Box
Unless you have something custom made, transporting a bike can prove cumbersome. Ever the forward-thinking stuff-container company, Thule’s newest bike transport options are compact and multifunctional. The Pro (a soft case) and the Elite (a hard case) both feature interior rails that secure the frame and keeps all parts organized; the rail pulls out to reveal a tripod stand for doing work on your ride. The polyethylene Sport is simplified and has straps to hold each bike part rather than the rail/stand, which similarly makes storage and shipping a cinch. $380+

LG-G2-Gear-Patrol

LG G2
LG’s G2 looks and acts a lot like Samsung’s Galaxy S4. Is that a bad thing? Its 5.2-inch 1080p screen is bigger, but an edge-to-edge design means a similar size in the hand. The buttons are also found only on the back of the device; a design choice for one-handed operation. A Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GM of ram, and a 13MP camera top it all off, while a deluge of customization options on the software front mean buyers can use the phone “however they want!” lg.com
Sony-HT-ST7-Gear-Patrol

Sony HT-ST7 Soundbar
While other brands have focused on affordable sound bars for the curious coach potato, Sony’s newly revealed $1,299 HT-ST7 takes aim at a different customer: audiophiles. Designed with equal attention to music and movie audio in, it houses nine speaker drives along with seven discrete amps and supports the usual range of Dolby and DTS codecs. NFC and Bluetooth connectivity are also a welcomed nod to our Smartphone overlords. A sub comes included, much to your neighbors’ chagrin. $1,299
