Catalyst-Waterproof-iPhone-Cases-Gear-Patrol Catalyst Waterproof iPhone Cases
This case, impact proof from six feet and waterproof up to 16 feet all for about $65, means you can cliff jump off that rock face into the water and make a call too. Hard coated optics keep your camera from taking blurry or plastic-y pics and a clear back panel maintains the great looking backside of the iPhone 4/4s and 5/5s. $65
Roots-x-Douglas-Coupland-Gear-Patrol Roots X Douglas Coupland
Who better to work with Canada’s best known relax-wear maker than a novelist who is also an artist? Featuring statement pieces like a scarf, leather wallet and tops for men and women, the capsule collection with Douglas Coupland debuts May 30 at and will certainly draw conversation — or envy — from your yet-to-be published friends. Still working on the title? Got it.
Beats-Solo-2-Gear-Patrol Beats Solo 2 Headphones
Things seem to be on the on the up and up for Beats between an acquisition announcement from Apple and a redesign of one of their most popular set of cans. We’ll leave you to decide which is a bigger deal. The Solo 2 has been updated to offer a wider range of sound, helping to address one of the biggest criticisms from the audiophile community. They’re also supposedly more comfortable too. Look for them in stores or in those awkward commericals of your favorite athletes entering and or leaving a sporting arena. $199
Onia-Ikea-Shorts-Gear-Patrol Onia Ike Terry Short
The first loungewear short from the swim trunk masters at Onia is based on the tailored fit of their Charles bathing suit and made from a cotton/vicose blend that’s ideally suited for relaxing on shore. They’re available in four different colors at launch.

Genius. $62
Taming-The-Feast-Gear-Patrol Taming the Feast by Ben Ford
Harrison Ford’s son Ben is apparently a chef who’s spent years studying under some of the best in California (he worked at Chez Panisse) and has developed quite a reputation for his feast throwing skills. His new book provides step by step instructions on how to create a variety of excellent large scale meals to satiate the hungry masses in style. As New Orleans chef John Besh says, “this ain’t about molecular tweezer food.” $26
