Good morning. The roaring tidal wave that has been 2016 is mere weeks away from finally fizzling out — or, depending on how you see it, crashing violently. As we prepare to drop into the next big wave (please go easy on us poor souls, 2017!), Digg has put together a nice list of this year’s best of the internet: the most shared stories, the most viral videos and more. Here’s what’s good in gear: a marine-inspired wooden teardrop camper, a new adventure magazine, Apple’s long-awaited AirPods and much more.

And here are some fresh stories to start the day.

Fjällräven Greenland No.1 Down Jacket

Sweden is one of the coldest places on Earth. As such, its denizens must be outfitted with the warmest, toughest winter gear. For nearly 60 years, Fjällräven has supplied Swedes (and, within the past decade or so, the greater world) with the finest-quality outerwear. The Greenland No.1 Down Jacket is a rebirth of one of their first jacket designs. One-hundred grams of sustainably sourced 700-fill goose down insulation provides moderate-to-heavy warmth, while the waxed polyester/cotton shell resists wind, water and abrasion. Yet with its polyamide liner, the jacket feels surprisingly light and silky on your skin.

Apple AirPods

The wireless version of Apple’s beloved EarPods are (finally) here.

Ferrari J50 V8

To commemorate 50 years of Ferrari in Japan, the Italian marque is gifting the country 10 custom cars.

Chesapeake Light Craft Teardrop Campers

Chesapeake Light Craft makes top-notch wooden watercraft build kits: sailboats, kayaks, sport canoes, paddleboards and more. This teardrop camper is their first foray into land-based crafts. Unsurprisingly, its design is heavily marine-inspired — marine-grade plywood and fiberglass, a sailboat-cabin-like interior, a “galley” window hatch and more. Some Lots of assembly required.

Airbus Transpose

Plug-and-play aircraft interiors, custom-tailored to meet the needs of every flight — from long-haul trips to puddle jumpers.

Eldorado Volume One

Eldorado’s first print issue is a gorgeously put-together adventure magazine, full of excellent photography and poetic, enchanting stories. (Sound familiar?) Oh, and it’s independently published, too. We’re very impressed.
