New & Noteworthy Releases


Helm Bynum Boot
Finding a boot with classic style and modern performance is tough. But with the Helm Bynum boot, you get an even mix of both. The 8.5-inch tall boots are based on the height of traditional military boots and handcrafted in America from trusty Horween Chromexcel leather. These classic details are complemented by Helm’s signature white composite rubber midsole, creating a timeless look that’s also incredibly comfortable. Another unique feature we love? The seasonally updated sockliner quote and tongue stamp.



Terasu Gyuto and Utility Knives
California-based Terasu is now offering two knives made in Bolinas by metalsmith Kurtis Major. The Gyuto (180 mm blade) and the Utility (135 mm blade) both feature burt-wood handles made from Mt. Tamalpais windfall white oak. The blades are Japanese Hitachi ‘White paper’ Carbon steel (forged in Germany) which are double beveled and tripled layered with black skin. If you’re looking to invest in functional, good-looking tools for the kitchen, these are definitely worth the price. — John Zientek



Trek Verve+ E-bike
Like it or not, e-bikes are redefining how we commute, especially in urban areas where bicycles are simply more efficient than cars and public transport. Trek isn’t new to the e-bike game, and its latest commuter model, the Verve+, is an affordable addition to well-known cycling brand’s current line. The bike is constructed with a pedal-assist system by Bosch that can get riders going up to 20 miles per hour and has commuter-friendly additions including fenders and integrated lights that turn on automatically. — Tanner Bowden



The North Face x Pendleton Collection
Brand collaborations like this one are a dime a dozen. But rarely are they this good. Paired with Pendleton’s classic wool jacquard patterns, which are processed and woven right here in the USA, The North Face’s products take on a whole new cabin-adventure-ready spirit. The collection includes a vest, two jackets, a backpack, down booties and a ballcap. — Michael Finn



2018 BMW M5 Gets a Pricetag
We’ve known what the 2018 BMW M5 will look like for quite some time now. It’s also common knowledge it will have a batshit crazy 600 hp twin-turbo V8 and AWD. Now BMW has set the price tag at a whopping $102,600. — Bryan Campbell


Fresh Deals


Cole Haan Leather Duffel
Save 75%: If you’ve been looking for an understated leather overnight bag, this is for you. Made of either chocolate or black leather, this bag features two leather handles, a zip closure and a fabric lining with interior pockets. It may be on the small side for a full weekend getaway, but for a quick trip, you can’t beat it. — John Zientek



Gerber Suspension Multi-Plier
Save 30%: Demand more from your pocketknife. Demand pliers (both needlenose and regular), a saw blade, screwdrivers and six other types of tools that’ll keep you prepared in a pinch, without adding too much extra heft to your pocket. — Tanner Bowden



SOG Field Pup Knife
Save 67%: The Field Pup Knife’s handle is made of Kraton, a kind of synthetic rubber that’s highly resistant to heat, weathering and chemicals. The four-inch blade, made of exceptionally durable stainless steel, is equally durable. And the knife weighs just four ounces, making it an ideal working knife for all sorts of backcountry applications. It comes in two colors (tan and black), and comes with a black leather sheath. — Michael Finn



Sonos Play:1 and Play:3
SAVE: $50 ON EACH Sonos’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are still on, for the Play:1 and Play:3 at least. Both are still $50 off, so if you were thinking about expanding (or starting) your home’s Sonos ecosystem, there’s still time to do so for less. — Tucker Bowe
