For collectors, the Doxa Army is a classic for military watch aficionados and watch lovers alike. While the Army has faded into the archives since the '70s, a partnership with Watches of Switzerland has helped Doxa bring the Army silhouette back. Offered in a 42.5mm matte black ceramic case, the watch is powered by a Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement with a COSC certified chronometer. Learn more about this legacy dive watch (and its unique pedigree), and pick up one for yourself down below. Move with military precision though; this release is only set for 100 pieces.
The latest in Dell's line of ultraportable laptops (meaning it weighs under 3 pounds and is no wider than .75 inches thick), the XPS 13 Plus is recognized for its slim-bezel design and borderless (and touch type-friendly) keyboard — giving it an appearance that looks like it was chiseled out of a single block of material. Packed with 12th Generation Intel Core processors, it's a solid non-Apple solution to computing on the go.
Inspired by a Satisfy Pro-led tour across the Arizona and Utah border, the "Monument Valley" collection honors the national landmark that bookended the team's trip. Satisfy "Re-Possessed" 20 souvenir tees and added runner-friendly technical additions to each one in its Paris studio. Akin to recycling vintage into something new, Satisfy decked out these run-of-the-mill gift shop T-shirts with reflective front and back graphic treatments or hand-cut ventilation.
Cold Steel is expanding its offering with two new folder lineups, named the Engage and the Verdict. The Engage series stands apart for its use of the Cold Steel's new Atlas lock tech across the board — a revamped sliding lock mechanism that builds upon the successes of Cold Steel's tried-and-trusted Tri-Ad lock. While both series have a variety of different handle materials and differing blade lengths and shapes, both lineups are built to offer a reliable EDC experience at an equally diverse range of prices.
Flated is relatively new to the game, founded as early as 2021. The brand's new Air-Topper is designed to fit most mid-sized long bed trucks, using military-grade materials to turn a truckbed into a makeshift camping space or simply offer protection and privacy over what you're hauling in your truck. Complete with a high-pressure hand pump, the Air-Topper can easily inflate for use or be deflated and stashed into a small storage bag. With details like privacy-tinted side and rear roll-up windows, it's clear that the Air-Topper is built to work in concert with the brand's signature Air-Deck to turn the back of your truck into a home away from home.
