From Macallan's latest 30 year single malt, to Facebook's new portable Portal and Nutribullet's two-way coffee maker, get the lowdown on today's newest drops.
Even as things start to (slowly) crawl towards normalcy, it's safe to say we'll be spending plenty of time at home. Certainly Facebook thinks so, as it invests once again into its signature video chat technology with a few new updates to both portability and business plans. If nothing else, it's a good reminder that — from our coffee makers to our bar carts — we certainly have other things that we're looking to invest in around the house. Whether it's a new release from The Maccallan or a cargo pocket-covered take on men's workout pants, this is the gear to stay on top of today.
Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and news. We’d love to hear from you at email@example.com.
Presented by Thursday Boot Company
For a boot that's built to handle whatever is thrown at it (and look just as solid while doing it), check out the Captain Boot from Thursday Boot Company. Handcrafted with integrity, you'll find a Goodyear welted sole, an upper built from Tier 1 cattle hide leather, Kevlar blend laces and antimicrobial shock-absorbing insoles — all for less than $200.
Facebook's investment in home-based tech and video streaming expands with the launch of its third-generation Portal. The main highlight includes the portable Portal Go for $199, boasting a ten-inch screen and five hours of battery life (with up to 14 hours of use if you're opting for voice-only calls).
Listen, we're not the biggest fans of coffee pods, but we respect Nutribullet's newest coffee maker — which allows for flexible brewing via coffee pods or conventional coffee filter. Whether you're a single-cup or 12-cup pot person, we can't knock Nutribullet for giving caffeine junkies options.
Alo has emerged as a sneaky-good addition to the competitive workout apparel market, rooted in the world of yoga. Alo's Cargo Venture Pant turns up the volume on basic workout bottoms, adding four cargo pockets and a bungee-cinched hem for water-repellent pants that work — whether you're working out or going out.
Adding a 30-year-old iteration to its Double Cask series, The Maccallan's newest whiskey is aged in American and European oak casks, delivering both the sweetness of sherry-seasoned oak with the classic profile of European oak-aged Maccallan single malt. A profile that blends ginger, vanilla, dried fruit and toffee, it's one of the more complex bottles in The Maccallan's offering.
