Today in Gear: March 27, 2014

Today in Gear we examine quieter lawn mowers, a book on quail hunting rigs, Bamboo bicycles and winey Glenmorangie.



Sigg Thermo Bottles
New for spring ’14, Sigg’s thermobottles come in 0.3, 0.5, 0.75 and 1L sizes and are made with BPA- and phthalate-free stainless steel. We tested one in the Tetons and had hot coffee for hours while climbing and skiing miles from civilization. $40

Boo Bicycles
Boo Bicycles makes the best handmade carbon-bamboo and aluminum-bamboo frames out there (conveniently, they’re also the only ones doing it). Their rides range from commuter to mountain and fatbike, but the specially designed fatbike with racks for ski gear caught our eye. $2,995+ ()

Glenmorangie’s Companta Private Edition Single Malt Whisky
The Scotts have teamed up with Europe’s perennial scoffers to create the latest addition to Glenmorangie’s Private Edition series. Companta (which means friendship in Scottish gaelic) is a blend of single malts aged in Grand Cru casks from Clos de Tart and fortified wines from the Cotes du Rhone, creating a tasting experience that lovers of both fine whisky and wine can savor with pleasure — if they can still find it on shelves. $99

Texas Quail Rigs
Photographer A. Lokey has been documenting a unique breed of dove hunting vehicles found in Texas that are slowly disappearing (along with dove population and the rights to the straight-to-DVD sequel Jurassic Trailer Park). His resulting book can best be described as artful truck porn with a cultural conservationist spin. In other words, we want it on our coffee table, now. $85

Gant Rugger Rugger Sneaker
Gant’s first step out into the sneaker game is a leather “Sea Salt” colored Plimsoll featuring a handmade rubber sole and an embroidered G on the tongue. Your move, Purcell. $175

Craftsman Quiet Power Technology Mowers
Craftsman has released two new push mowers featuring “quiet technology”. The new tech was developed in partnership with engine maker Briggs & Stratton and makes both models up to 65 percent quieter than the competition. That’s still not exactly silent, so stick with just night putting for now. $300+
