The classic Rover Pack is a great day pack: water resistant, 1000D nylon and packed to the gills with all the pockets you could want. The SC25 patch makes it correct so much cooler.
Leica M11 rangefinder camera
The Leica M11’s name precedes it, and for good reason, so it’s no surprise to see the amount of buzz the compact camera has received. The gold-standard rangefinder camera update looks minimal at first glance, with little change to the look of the body, but an exclusively designed full-frame BSI CMOS sensor with triple-resolution technology means photography crystal-clear to full hum from 60 to 18 megapixels. . Throw in a Maestro III processor and 64GB of internal memory and you have all the justification you need for the prestige (and price) of the Leica M-series controls.
VSAmpbell’s Soup Scented Candles
If you’re a bed eater, you may have experienced the horror and panic of a soup-in-the-sheets situation. If not, but you’re curious what it might look like, Campbell’s new collection of scented candles is for you. With delicious flavors of, uh, flavors like “Chicken Noodle Soup” and “Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese,” these waxy wafers are guaranteed to keep the tum-tum growling and the house smelling like mom’s came from you. have a hearty bowl of Campbell’s post-luge excursion. We think this is a good thing? You have time to think about it, because the collection sold out immediately. Keep an eye out for potential restock!
Shinola Forged Carbon Monster Automatic
Think carbon fiber watches are where they are? Shinola has the next best thing: a forged carbon version of their Monster Automatic, which features a 45mm case made of carbon fiber that has been chopped up, mixed with resin, and then subjected to intense heat and pressure, this which results in an extremely durable yet lightweight watch. . Moreover, no two models are identical.

Adidas by Prada ReNylon
The long-awaited Adidas by Prada ReNylon finally dropped this week, and it’s pretty much what we’ve been waiting for. That is to say, he blew our stinky socks. The 21-piece collection, made in Italy, demonstrates a shared commitment to eco-friendly innovation between the brands (Prada’s ReNylon has been hailed as true upcycled luxury), and each look is both understated and worthy of a gram. The collection is available at Adidas CONFIRMED app, as well as Prada’s online store. Well, until it sells out, that is.
Mega bites of red fish
What else? No, no, they’re not goldfish. These are… uh… Mega Bite goldfish. So basically they’re, like, bigger? By 50%. And… crispier. And designed specifically for adults. To fit adult sized hands. You see, small Goldfish, those weren’t good for big hands. But the Mega Bite goldfish – now there’s an adult-sized goldfish.
Filson Alaskan Guide Joggers
You know those pajama pants that your middle-aged, slightly disheveled father-of-two neighbor puts on after work on Friday night and doesn’t take off until Monday morning? The Filson Alaskan Guide Joggers are this guy’s final shape. Constructed with the same heavyweight flannel as Filson’s signature Guide Shirts, they feature an elasticated waist and cuffs to ensure a snug, cold-resistant fit. Wear them to get the paper. Wear them to an event you probably shouldn’t – something in a church, perhaps? Or at a formal dinner? Where everywhere. Maybe neighbor Mike was onto something.
Truly Margarita Style Blend
Truly’s new “margarita-style” canned drinks are meant to be a cross between a hard seltzer water and a margarita – meaning we’ll likely be drinking several this summer. Available in slim cans of Classic Lime, Hibiscus Strawberry, Chili Mango and Cucumber Watermelon.
Gucci x The North Face Drop 2
Did we love the first collection on which Gucci and The North Face teamed up a year ago? We were doing. Do we like that second drop even more? It is certainly possible, with the watercolor landscape parkas and green tramplers it will take you out of that grayscale winter funk.
