Indian Scout FTR1200 Custom
It’s important to keep in mind that the FTR1200 is “an exploration of what a street-legal tracker could look like,” as Indian Motorcycle Co. calls it. But it’s also worth knowing the bike is entirely plausible and could go into production. This exercise is essentially just Indian testing the waters for the public’s reaction to the bike. It looks incredible and they need to build it. Here’s hoping Indian is listening… — Bryan Campbell
Snow Peak Limited Edition Holiday Collection
Twice a year, Snow Peak, Japanese maker of refined outdoor goods, unveils a range of limited edition products with unique features and artwork. The company’s latest holiday collection includes three items: a pile fleece blanket designed for use with a camp chair, a lantern decorated with artwork inspired by Peru’s Nazca Lines, and an iteration of its classic titanium camp mug that hosts the likeness of a red seabream, a delicacy traditionally prepared in Japan during festive occasions. Note: As of the time of writing, these products are available by waitlist only. — Tanner Bowden
Tracksmith Fynnsen Crewneck
Tracksmith designs its premium running apparel with more than just a hint of nostalgia for the days when running was a sport for pros and university students alone. Its latest product is a take on the classic crewneck sweatshirt. The Fynnsen is made with a blend of moisture-wicking merino wool and synthetic fibers instead of the traditional cotton, so you can actually exercise in it. Tracksmith has also added subtle style cues, which sensibly redefine the boundaries of what it means to be plain. — Tanner Bowden
Vans x Finisterre Collab
Vans and British surf brand Finisterre are situated on different oceans but sharee the same penchant for adventure. Their recent collaboration is proof. One shoe is a wool-lined chukka ideal for winter, another a lightweight high-top made for far-flung travels, the third a new take on surf classic. All place set a high bar for style, because neither company would have it any other way. — Tanner Bowden

Fisher + Baker Greenwich Anorak
Fisher + Baker makes clothing for men that is timeless in style and just as comfortable in the office as it is paddling a wooden canoe. Because if you are going to take on the challenge of each day, you have to be prepared for whatever it holds.
On the outside, this anorak is clearly built for adventure. But what makes this layer special is the Polartec PowerWool lining. It’s incredibly smooth against your skin while excelling at keeping you at the perfect temperature. Here, even the fine points have fine points, from the easy-to-use articulated side zippers, drop tail and extended hood that keeps the drips out of your eyes. (And sun, should it reappear).
