This Sleeping Bag Can Keep You Warm in -40°F

Biigloo recently launched an Aerogel Sleeping Bag enriched with Nasa-ready insulation. Historically, NASA started using aerogel to insulate blankets and spacesuits for astronauts in the ‘90s. Now, Biigloo is using the material to create a four pound mummy-shaped, wind and waterproof sleeping bag. Designed for use at high altitudes and in extreme conditions, the ventilated sleeping bag also harnesses ultra-fine nylon for abrasion resistance, plus biodegradable DuPont SORONA bio-fleece in its sleeping bag filters for added warmth.


Haul It All with Rothy’s Lightweight Mega Tote

The Lightweight Mega Tote ($229) is a new take on the brand’s beloved Lightweight Tote ($179). Launching in five colorways, the new Lightweight Mega Tote is the brand’s largest and most versatile bag yet. The durable bag makes a great gear hauler and you’re sure to reach for it on every day trip or beach day. Best of all, the Lightweight Mega Tote is machine washable and made from 100 percent ocean-bound marine plastics. To celebrate this new release, Rothy’s is also dropping a wide rainbow of new colors for the classic Lightweight tote (made with Rothy's signature rPET blended with marine-bound ocean plastic) plus more options for its coordinating pouches and wristlets.


This Belt Doubles As a Multi-Tool

The new 686 Toolbelt II ($50) just dropped as an updated take on 686’s classic Toolbelt. Its removable buckle features two steel prongs that can be used as screwdrivers (with both flathead and #2 Philips capabilities), plus a bottle opener. Meanwhile, the removable loop is printed with a ruler and comes equipped with 8mm, 10mm, 12mm Wrenches. The strap is made with 100 percent full grain leather, while the metal features are made from a zinc alloy. The full piece is TSA-compliant and comes with a lifetime warranty across its tools.


Still Looking for a Valentine’s Day Gift? Say ‘I Love You’ with Boots

For some, sweet treats and a dozen roses might be enough to satiate the usual Valentine’s day – but for others, it’s going to take something a bit more unconventional. So if you’re looking to get your valentine something a little more, hard-wearing, consider Tecovas. The Texas-based boot brand is known for crafting high-quality, handmade boots. The Annie ($295) is a gorgeous boot available in five different colors (including ‘Bone’) and two materials (bovine and suede). Designed to knock her socks off, these boots are made for gifting.


Meet Laundry Day’s Innovative Ashtray
Laundry Day

Crafted in collaboration with Argentinian designer Alvaro Ucha Rodriguez, the ‘Ashtray’ ($125) is a new design-forward staple made of stainless steel. Like all of Laundry Day’s releases, this new product takes an often overlooked cannabis accessory and creates an object worth showing off. Composed of two detachable components, the Ashtray allows fans to rest rolled items in its interior, while placing pieces on the exterior. Notably, this release marks Laundry Day’s first ashtray, though fans should definitely check out the brand’s other sculptural pipes, grinders and 24K white gold rolling papers ($24).
