New & Noteworthy Releases


The Very Warm Vandal Bomber Jacket
Founded in New York, The Very Warm makes jackets and coats from fine materials that are more than mere outerwear — they’re artistic collaborations. For the brand’s latest release, the Vandal bomber jacket, it teamed up with Brooklyn collage artist Morgan Lappin, whose moody, patchwork cityscape adorns the lining within.

The rest of the jacket looks like it should make for a winter-beating jacket. The outer shell — available in either olive, burgundy, navy or black — is made from a durable and weather-resistant flight satin nylon that’s quilted and filled with insulating fine down. The zippers are made from heavy nickel and gunmetal, while heavy-duty ribbing on the collar, cuffs and waistband keep the jacket from losing heat.

The Vandal is available from The Very Warm right now, either online or at its pop-up shop at Odin New York in downtown Manhattan. At $315 it’s modestly priced for such a unique down bomber, but if you use the promo code GEAR20 you’ll score an extra 20% off.



Bellroy Work Folio A4
Bellroy’s new folio is built to keep your work essentials hidden in one (handsome) place. It can hold a 8.3 x 11.7-inch notebook, a phone and its ancillary accessories, as well as several business cards. It’s made from environmentally-certified leather and is available in either black or a handsome tan color.— Andrew Connor



OPEN Cycles New U.P. GravelPlus Yeti Limited Edition
If you’ve always wanted a gravel bike to match your turquoise Yeti mountain bike perfectly, now’s your chance. OPEN is making a limited run of 50 New U.P. frames in Yeti’s original turquoise colorway. For those in the market for a do it all adventure bike, we’d be hard-pressed to recommend a better frame. If you aren’t into the turquoise, you can still get the frame in a few other colors. — AJ Powell



Shockoe Atelier Selvedge Duck Canvas Pants
Available in olive and khaki colorways, these pants are made from 11 ounce selvedge duck canvas from Collect Mills. The silhouette is flattering on many body types — a mid-high rise, generous seat and thighs and a slightly taped leg — and the construction is top notch. The pants feature tonal stitching, leather backed rivets and buttons, lined back pockets and reinforced front pockets. If you’re looking to get something other than denim this season, these are your pants. — John Zientek

This Is the Most Innovative Folding Knife of 2017 & It’s 26% Off
This year saw the release of a handful of innovative knives — Benchmade’s 781 Anthem, the CRKT Pilar and the Spyderco Maxamet Manix 2 Lightweight among others. But thanks to KnifeNews’s Dealer’s Choice Awards, we can now label one folding knife the most innovative of 2017: the Zero Tolerance 0055. First released earlier this year at Shot Show, the 0055 is a collaboration with GTC Knives. It has a wild-looking blade shape, based on the GTC Airborne. The 0055 also features a production version of GTC’s highly sought after SLT hidden flipper. You can purchase the knife right now on ZT’s website for $275, but it is currently on sale on Amazon for around 26% off. That’s a small price to pay for owning the most innovative knife released this calendar year.

Big Deal: Save Even More ($250+) on Dyson’s Year-Round Humidifier
Most humidifiers are one-season splurges that sit in storage most of the year. Dyson’s AM10 humidifier, however, doubles as a fan for four-season use. Though it normally costs $500 online, you can score a refurbished model on eBay for just $250 (50% off). Better yet, right now for a limited time you can also use the code PHOLIDAY20 for an additional 20% off.



Looking for Accessories for Your Desktop? Logitech Is Having a Huge 30% off Sale
If you’re looking for a good deal on computer and gaming accessories, Logitech, one the industry leaders, is currently offering 30-percent off a lot of its products. You can get its new MX Sound desktop speakers for $70 (normally $100), its new Craft Wireless Keyboard for $140 (normally $200), and its MX Ergo for $70 (normally $100). There are some other mice, headphones and laptop and iPad Pro cases that are on sale. To get the discount, just type in the coupon code “3pfpp7ezr” at checkout. If you can’t decide whether to pull the trigger, you have some time. The deal runs until December 10. If you’d rather order from Amazon, there are tons of Logitech deals available there as well — including 25% off the Harmony Elite Remote and Hub.



This Great Arctic Parka Is Now 20% Off
If you still haven’t invested in a quality winter coat, now’s your chance. The Arctic Parka from Woolrich John Rich & Bros. is now 20% off at online retailer East Dane. Built to stand up to winter’s worst, it is water resistant, down filled and minimally branded. Dark Green and Dark Navy colors are on sale now, so don’t wait until the first snowfall to get a better cold-weather coat.

Don’t Miss Your Chance to Get a Filson Field Watch for $200
This gunmetal Mackinaw watch was built by Shinola for Filson’s lineup of field watches, thus it has a stylish edge in addition to its rugged build. It comes packing a Swiss-made quartz movement inside its 43mm case, and the dial is big, legible and adorned with loads of lume. Traditionally, Filson’s watches have always been…optimistically priced, but The Watch Outlet’s eBay store has a solid 71% markdown. It’s probably worth hurrying, though, as the page indicates there’s a limited quantity left.



Deal: Save $250 on Bang & Olufsen’s Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones
Bang & Olufsen released the BeoPlay H8 in 2016, and it’s still one of the best on-ear, noise-canceling headphones you can buy. Each pair is pretty, constructed of metal and leather, and has features like touch controls and 14 hours of battery life (with ANC). You can buy a pair of H8s on Bang & Olufsen’s website for $499 (here), in three colors, or you can get a discounted pair on Amazon for as low as $330 (here). Or you can buy a “manufacturer refurbished” pair on eBay for $250 (here, but only in the gray hazel color way.)

“Manufacturer refurbished” can be a red flag for some, but if you need some reassurance, the headphones come with a one-year warranty and a 30-day return policy.



One of the Year’s Best 4K OLED TVs Costs $5,499 — Get It Today For $2,599
If you’re up to date on the latest TV technologies, you’ll know that OLED TVs are the nicest TVs you can buy. They produce darker blacks and more vibrant colors than any LCD TV. And yes, this superior picture quality comes at a cost. Most 55- and 65-inch OLEDs by LG — who make the crème de la crème of OLED TVs — cost a couple grand. That doesn’t mean there aren’t deals to be had, however.

The 2017 LG E7 OLED is one of the company’s high-end OLEDs — even nicer than its flagship C7P OLEDs — and a 65-inch model usually goes for $5,499. Right now, you can get a holiday deal on that same TV on Amazon for $3,397 (link here). But if you want a real steal, you can get that same TV for $2,599 on eBay. That’s 52-percent off, a total saving of almost $3,000, and it puts this 2017 OLED in the same price range as pretty-nice-but-not-OLED TVs. Insanity.

Also, this is a new TV — not “manufacturer refurbished” like many eBay deals. If you need some extra reassurance, it comes with a 30-day return policy.



One of Our Favorite Pairs of Skis Is Currently 60% Off
A good powder ski has much more to it than just a wide waist, and that’s certainly the case with the Sick Day 125. Line has continued to tweak this ski over the years. Even though this model is a couple of years old, it still hits the Goldilocks Zone of lightweight and stability. The Sick Day’s aspen core is cut with Line’s Magic Finger carbon filaments, which run the entire length of the ski to stiffen the construction without adding much extra weight. Despite its hefty waist, the Sick Day is a deft turner, in part due to a tapered tip and tail that are part of the ski’s five-point profile. Right now you can score them for 60% off at The House.



Save 34% On this Rugged Waxed Canvas Briefcase from Barbour
Now at online retailer End, you can save 34% on a rugged briefcase from Barbour. Built from heavyweight waxed cotton and leather, it’ll last for years. It features brass buckles, two front pockets, leather handles and an adjustable strap. The size is perfect for everyday use — no matter your lifestyle — and with savings like this, it’s a worthy investment.
