|DEFY x Horween Leather Overnighter
You’ve got your pick of supple black Austin Calf leather, authentic orange-ish basketball leather and Rio Latigo colored leather that looks rescued from Larry Bird’s attic. All three have simple black military Ripstop parachute lining for easy cleanup and durability. $395
|Marc Pro Recovery Aid
The Marc Pro uses two electrodes to create muscle contractions, which the company says sets off a “cascading series of physiologic events” that increase blood flow to muscles and remove waste to aid in recovery. The whole kit packs up to the size of a bagged lunch. $650
|Yakima S.U.P. Brah
Come May 2014 Yakima will introduce its first SUP carrier with added protection for your board. Ignore the fratty humor. $30
The Rev series is Osprey’s vision of a technical trail running hydration pack, with a proprietary harness and belt designed to fit like a shirt. The reservoir has built-in baffles to reduce sloshing, and also has convenient features like a media pocket and bungee compression on the front panel.
|Swish Console Desk
Features like a sliding top that reveals or hides desk space, an integrated cord management slot and a hidden junk drawer make this an ideal desk for minimalists. Could it be used as a buffet, sidebar or console? Sure, Martha.
|Nokia Lumia Icon
Verizon has apparently snagged the Finnish phone maker’s latest premium offering. It packs a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED screen, 20MP PureView camera, 2.2GHz quad-core processor, 2420 mAh battery, and four high-performance microphones for excellent stereo recording — all inside a slick aluminum-rimmed casing. Your move, (insert phone maker here).
