Briefings : Weekly Rewind By Photo by 8Bitdo

Good morning, and welcome to the latest edition of This Week in Gear — your single-shot serving of an entire week’s worth of the best new gear pulled from our weekday editions of Today in Gear. Bookmark it to peruse while you explore the 2017 Guide to Life and start your Monday completely up to speed. Here’s to another fantastic week.

Helly Hansen HH Pile Fleece

Over the course of its 140-year-long life, Helly Hansen has come to be known as a maker of some of the world’s finest high-performance sportswear and workwear. This year, in celebration of its 140-year anniversary, the company is bringing back one of its most classic garments: the HH Pile Fleece. It is virtually identical to the 1961 original, but with softer, lighter fleece. And the HH Pile Fleece isn’t Helly Hansen’s only commemoration of its roots — the 140 Heritage Collection contains rain jackets, baselayers, hats and more.

Danner 917 Series Boots

Danner earned its stripes in forests and mountains and deserts. Lately, however, the Oregon-based company has been venturing deeper and deeper into urban jungles, building boots that are better suited snowy sidewalks than for dirt trails. That is the essence of the 917 Series.

Schoolhouse Electric Allegheny Indoor/Outdoor LED Sconce

The ’70s called. It’s super jealous of your butterscotch-colored wall lamp. Where’d you get it?

Jaybird RUN True Wireless Sport Headphones

Jaybird’s first foray into true wireless technology — no wires of any sort, just individual Bluetooth-enabled earbuds.

L.L.Bean Flannel-Lined Sweatshirt

The only words in the English language more autumnal than “Flannel-Lined Sweatshirt” are “pumpkin-spiced apple cider on Football Sunday.”

Satechi Universal Vertical Aluminum Laptop Stand

An elegant aluminum stand that’ll hold laptops of nearly every shape and size. (Apple fans, in particular, will love the Space Gray color.)

Gear Patrol Field Guide: American Craft Beer

From the Gear Patrol Store: Introducing your favorite new printed thing. What ever happened to the humble field guide — that thumb-able, spiral-bound companion we kept nearby as a quick go-to resource for our latest obsession? Ah yes, Google. We’re not here to refute the speed of a search engine, but damn if we don’t love a great thing to hold and reference. That said, we’re pleased to introduce you to our latest creation, Gear Patrol Field Guides.

Danner Explorer 650

An homage to the original 1979 Danner Light, arguably Danner’s most influential and most classic hiking boot design, the Explorer 650 once again raises the bar even further, adding new hiking boot technology from top to bottom. For maximum abrasion resistance, the Explorer 650 combines full-grain leather with nylon panels, both of which are fully waterproof and superbly breathable. It is a boot that yearns for the trail, just as its ancestor did, but loves a night out on the town just as much.

8Bitdo SN30 Universal Retro Game Controller

Got a flashy new Nintendo Switch, but yearn for the true Nintendo experience? Look no further.

ARKTYPE Dashpack

The first backpack from ARKTYPE, a brand known for its premium EDC keychains.

C by GE Sol Alexa-Enabled Lamp

Imagine if an Amazon Echo turned silver and sprouted a luminescent halo. That is the C by GE Sol.

A. Lange Sohn Deep-Blue Lange 1

A. Lange & Söhne’s most iconic watch, now with a manually wound calibre and a jumping outsize date.

The One Piano Hi-Lite

Turn any standard 88-key piano into a “smart” piano, capable of clever digitally enhanced lessons, sheet music play-alongs, games and more.

877 Workshop × Gear Patrol Leather Keychain

From the Gear Patrol Store: We partnered with Berlin-based 877 Workshop to handcraft a keychain to hold your possessions stylishly and securely.
