In case you haven’t heard, BMW’s small i3 electric car and wild hybrid i8 sports car are soon to be a reality.

Victorinox-SPectra-2-Gear-Patrol Victorinox Spectra 2.0 Carry-on Luggage
We pride ourselves on our packing abilities, but inevitably the need arises to root through it all at the last minute. Victorinox feels our pain. They’ve included a zippered front-access pocket in their Spectra 2.0, so we can still grab our laptop, pen and paper, or charger — whatever it may be — and keep our undies neatly folded. spectra.victorinox.com
Baxter-of-California-x-Ronin-CASK-Candle-Gear-Patrol Baxter of California x Ronin “Cask” Candle
When we hear the word “patchouli” all we can think about is getting all indignant and righteous on a hippie or two. But this changes things. The collaboration between Baxter and Hong Kong restaurant Ronin, like the handwash they debuted recently, features a cavalcade of scents, including whiskey, cedar, vanilla and, yes, patchouli — all melted into a great-looking glass candle holder that would just look excellent on our countertop, don’t you think? $35
Equus-Bass-770-Gear-Patrol Equus Automotive Bass 770
Say what you will about urban decay, but there’s still a lot of beauty left in Detroit. Case in point: this stunning piece of automotive sculpture. If an aluminum frame and carbon-fiber-lined body, 640-horsepower supercharged V8 and high-performance everything else aren’t enough to entice you, just look at it. It’s a ’60s and ’70s throwback with a purely modern touch. With design cues from all the major muscle car players of yesteryear and performance on par with uncompromising GTs of today, it does just about everything right. $250,000+
Askov-Finlayson-Pants-Gear-Patrol Askov Finlayson Explorer Pant

Details like hidden rear pockets, a curved waistband, secure button fly and reinforced knees and seat ensure that the Explorers will hold up for a long while, whether you’re exploring the Boundary Waters Canoe Area or just a glass of single malt. $218
2015-GMC-Sierra-2500-Heavy-Duty-Gear-Patrol 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 Heavy Duty
Trucks are rough: we’re talkin’ spartan amenities and tough materials. GMC wants to change your mind about that. Their 2014 Sierra Heavy Duty — one of the biggest and baddest pickups you can buy — is refined as hell. Like, near-chauffeur-level refined. It looks excellent from outside too, and there are cargo box innovations, aesthetic details, towing and hauling improvements and tech goodies all too many to list too. Under the hood, the 6.6L turbo diesel cranks out almost 400 horses and 765 pound-feet of torque, making it the most powerful Sierra to date. Out early next year. gmc.com
