This morning's edition of Today in Gear features everything from a Four Roses and New Belgium collaboration to a hyper-durable rooftop tent — in addition to a potential new product from Sonos.

Though Sonos is experiencing a well-publicized series of product delays right in the heart of the holiday season, that hasn't stopped the rumor mill from churning. The latest news to concern the tech-meets-hi-fi giant is word that a smaller and less expensive Sub may be on the horizon. First reported by a user on Reddit, the Sonos smartphone app makes mention of the "Sub Mini" in the quick help menu. The text in the app describes it as a "smaller, cylindrical subwoofer." This could be great news for apartment-dwellers and more budget-conscious hi-fi enthusiasts alike, as the sub currently retails for $749 — a more than solid chunk of change. It stands to reason that the Sub Mini would come in at a lower price point, making those sweet bass tones much more accessible.

If hi-fi isn't your jam, fret not. This morning's edition of Today in Gear features everything from a Four Roses and New Belgium collaboration to a hyper-durable rooftop tent.

At just $21, it's hard to make an argument against Gerber's Zilch. The PNW-based brand is known for making durable knives and the 7cr steel makes sure that's still the case without breaking the bank.


Doxa builds on the 600t Pacific launched earlier this year with a full 600t collection.

Our Watch Desk was certainly smitten when the Doxa 600t Pacific limited-edition launched earlier this year, and it's safe to say the release of the full 600t collection only adds to that excitement. The model is now available in a full suite of colorways including that classic Doxa orange you know and love.


Roofnest's Condor Overland rooftop tent claims to be the toughest on the market.

We can neither confirm nor disprove Roofnest's claim of toughness at this juncture, but it's easy to see why the brand might make the claim. The Condor Overland features an all-aluminum construction, weighs 165 pounds and can be paired with cargo crossbars to carry up to 100 pounds of gear when folded closed.


This new beer-meets-whiskey collab is the result of two industry heavyweights combining forces.

New Belgium

Building on Oakspire releases of previous years, New Belgium upped its game for '21 by bringing in the venerable Four Roses. The beer is brewed using Four Roses-soaked charred oak spires as well as oak chips collected from inside barrels used to age Four Roses. The result is a beer that offers notes of toffee, vanilla, caramel, coconut and dark fruit.
