New & Noteworthy Releases

Incase NoviConnected 4 Wheel Hubless Travel Roller
Incase’s NoviConnected hard-sided suitcase anticipates and addresses every travel need, even the ones you aren’t aware of yet. It starts with a class-A Makrolon polycarbonate shell for protection, four smooth glide wheels for mobility, interior zip compartments for organization and a TSA approved lock. Then there are the unexpected details like an included exterior cover bag and laundry bag, a 4-stop trolly handle, a lifetime warranty on the luggage body and the wheels (which are also designed to be easily removed, FYI). But the real gamechanger is the app-controlled 10050 mAh battery bank that’s capable of recharging your iPhone multiple times or even giving USB-C powered laptops like the 15″ MacBook Pro up to 32% more use time. It’s also available in six color options and costs far less than many competing bags offering far fewer features.



Polk Audio MagniFi Max SR Wireless Soundbar
This is company’s larger, more decked-out sibling to the MagniFi Mini ($200). The new Max SR is a 5.1 channel home theater system that comes with a wireless subwoofer and a pair of satellite speakers. It’s compatible with the latest DTS and Dolby surround sound technologies, plus it has Chromecast built-in so you can stream music. — Tucker Bowe



Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic True Second Limited Edition
As e-commerce is becoming more commonplace in the luxury watch market, we’re seeing more and more brands capitalizing on the platform to sell unique models. Jaeger-LeCoultre, for example, has introduced a new version of the Geophysic True Second. The watch retains the jumping seconds (which ticks once a second like a quartz watch, but is far more complicated) movement and 39.5mm case of the original, but is bestowed with a new deep navy blue dial. It will be available on Jaeger-LeCoultre’s site exclusively starting December 5th. — Andrew Connor



Trek FX LTD Hybrid Bike
Trek’s latest bike, the FX LTD, is a crowd-pleaser. Depending on where you stand, the road bike is an affordable alternative for the cyclist who hasn’t quite committed, or it’s a performance-oriented city cruiser for the rider that goes farther than just A to B. Our take? It’s a road bike, and commuter bike wrapped up in one vintage-infused fast and lightweight setup. — Tanner Bowden



Outerknown Work Shirt
The newly released Work Shirt from Outerknown will be a good fit in any wardrobe. It’s made from six-ounce organic cotton herringbone fabric, and features reinforced chest pockets and a gusset detail at the side seam split. It also available in four colors, lacks overt branding, and is cut in a relaxed fit in order to fit over a tee or thermal. — John Zientek


Fresh Deals


Serve Your Whiskey in Waterford Crystal Glasses for Only $30
Spirits tend to be enjoyed best when there’s a sense of occasion, whether that’s a genuine celebration or just a quiet moment with a good book and an affable golden retriever nearby. Key to a sense of occasion is tier-one glassware. So ditch the Crate & Barrel water cups and pick up a deeply discounted four-pack of excellently weighted, cut-crystal double old-fashioned glasses made by Waterford — the brand when it comes to these things. Fill them with Scotch, fill them with bourbon, fill them with anything but whiskey stones.



Don’t Miss Your Chance to Get This Cordless Dyson Hand Vac for 44% Off
Dyson’s handheld, cord-free vacuums are a convenient accessory for the home — they’re easy to store, can get into small spaces and can be taken out to use in the car. This V6 “Animal” version is currently marked down to just $280, an outstanding deal. It can operate for 20 minutes on a full charge, and since it has a stronger brush bar than the standard Dyson V6, it’s perfect for keeping your home devoid of your furry friend’s sheddings and any ground-in dirt or dust.



Frye Chris Suede Overnight Duffle
Save 50%: This understated overnight duffle from Frye comes in a handsome sand suede. It’s a good size for all the necessities of a short work trip, or a light weekend (e.g. a change of clothes and toiletries). It’s lined and has one internal pocket, and it features a leather base, dual top handles and a detachable shoulder strap. If you don’t have a decent overnight bag, this is a great change to get a quality bag for a good price. — John Zientek



YETI Hopper 30 Cooler
Save $150: YETI products give the word “rugged” new meaning. Its coolers have proven time and again to be thoroughly bombproof (or bear-proof, at least), and its soft-sided Hopper line doesn’t break the form. Substantial deals on these coveted beverage carriers are as rare as the mythical beast they draw their name from, but right now you can save $150 on a tote-style Hopper that packs enough volume for 24 cans of your favorite beverage. It should be noted that this is a previous iteration of the cooler but is no less anything-proof and is still a favorite among hordes outdoors lovers. — Tanner Bowden
