Today in Gear: March 3, 2014

Today in Gear we examine, a grill approved for Gauchos, a newly immigrated Irish Whiskey, baseball hats from the ’30s and wireless routers your IT staff will love.



Green Spot Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey
Collector-oriented Irish Whiskey Green Spot has finally come stateside, much to fans delight. Though it’s technically a non-age statement Single Pot Still whiskey, the booze inside has typically been matured in new bourbon and sherry casks for between seven and ten years. Only 12,000 bottles are produced each year, so if you’re interested in expanding your palette for the Emerald Isle’s wares, make sure you strike when it crosses your path. $50

Nobis The Higgins Bomber Jacket
The calendar says spring is on its way, but the view from the window tells a different tale. To help stay warm and more stylish than the myriad of Michelin men around town, we’ve been sporting The Higgins bomber jacket from our friends at Nobis. Windproof, waterproof and breathable, the Higgins features Canadian white duck down insulation and a plethora of pockets in all of the right places. $875

DeWalt Portable Bandsaw
With the ability to cut through conduit, rigid pipe, Uni-Strut, threaded rod, or any other metallic materials like a hot knife through butter, the DeWalt 20V Max Lithium Ion Compact Bandsaw provides plenty of compelling reasons for ending up in your tool shed. Working with the very same power packs we featured here, this 9-pound metal muncher features an LED work light, ergonomic soft grip handles and the ability to swap blades without additional tools. $219

New Era Heritage Series, The 1934 Collection
From the return of the “high and tight” to straight razors and mustaches, there’s been a definite trend toward the “good ole days”. New Era is playing their part with the launch of the Heritage Series, which recreates the classic 1934 baseball hat. Designed in Buffalo, NY — New Era’s homebase — the fitted six-panel caps are made of 100 percent melton wool with a leather sweatband to take you back to the yesteryear, ya see. $75

Buffalo AirStation Open Source DD-WRT Wireless Routers
While other companies focus on dumbing down wireless networking, Buffalo is releasing a trio of devices for users looking to bring pro-grade features home. All three models ship with open source linux-based DD-WRT firmware out of the box that provides access to a suite of options including Open VPN, VPN passthrough, DNS cashing, WDS wireless bridging/repeating and even the ability to set up as a wi-fi hotspot. Just make sure your family gets the memo that the kitchen will henceforth be referred to as the “internet cafe”. buffalotech.com

Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet Gaucho Grill
Kalamazoo’s turned their meat-meets-flame expertise to another lauded grilling tradition — Argentinian Asado. Their new Gaucho grill combines the open-flame goodness of a traditional parrilla with modern day conveniences like a gas starter and a 36-inch spoke wheel that easily raises and lowers the cooking grate. It also burns charcoal and wood. Just add pampas-fed beef. kalamazoogourmet.com
