We don't want to sound overly optimistic, but maybe (maybe) we're heading back to a place where product and trade shows are returning to regular order. Don't get us wrong: We're not advocating that any show rush the process or overlook any medical protocols. But, we'd also be lying if weren't missing times when we could get up-close-and-personal with brands' latest releases. With Blade Show West wrapping up last weekend and Wind Up Watch Fair happening later on this October here in NYC, we're starting to wonder if we're seeing a slight return to normalcy. Rounding out the week with our favorite product news and releases, this is Today in Gear.

The Nokia 6310 is iconic in its own right, standing solidly as of the more popular mobile phones in circulation during a time before smartphones. Nokia has rereleased its classic 6310 — albeit with a few aesthetic modernizations — featuring 16GB of RAM, wireless FM radio and 20 hours of in-use battery (with 22 days of life in standby mode). Oh, and before we forget: Yes, it also includes the game of Snake.

Norse Projects wasn't messing around when it was designing this capsule collection. Outfitting the Tundra Ecology Lab's scientists as they conducted global warming experiments on Ellesmere Island, Norse Projects provided the team with Rokkvi 5.0 and Nunk parkas (featuring Gore-Tex), on top of every day staples like brushed wool sweaters and elk skin gloves. Norse Projects may have created a stylish Fall/Winter collection, but it's hardly far from functional.

A Gear Patrol reader asks: "Had an unfortunate incident last night and my Gear Patrol x Hamilton watch was stolen from my AirBnB in Mykonos. It has become my favorite watch and my daily wear. Can you recommend any replacements? Would very much like to replace my adored favorite watch."

The Expert:
First off, we want to send our condolences; that's really unfortunate to hear about your watch — especially on vacation. We checked in with our team and, while there aren't any immediate plans to re-release this collab in the future, we were able to figure out some alternatives that should come close to replacing this watch.

"It should be easy to get a very similar Hamilton watch just without some of the Gear Patrol-orange details. The whole Khaki Scuba Auto line is nice and comes down to a matter of choosing some colors. In our opinion, this rubber strap option is pretty close to the Gear Patrol watch. This option is also very close, especially if you're looking for a replacement with orange accents." - Zen Love, Staff Writer, Watches.

The new VanMoof V is the brand's fastest eBike, but for some it could be difficult to own and ride.

Infrastructure for fast eBikes doesn't really exist yet–at least not in big cities. Maybe by the time the VanMoof V starts shipping at the end of 2022 it'll be easier to own and ride. Plus: AirCarbon sunglasses and tips for getting ahead of this season's supply chain shipping woes.
