New & Noteworthy Releases

Batch Utility Shirts
Batch has designed a range of versatile utility shirts that will look good in any wardrobe. There are a number of styles we like on their roster inlcuding their latest edition The Navigator. The shirt employs a tailored fit and hidden button collar and chest pockets to give you a refined yet rugged look. If you’re in the market for a quality, good-looking all-around shirt, The Navigator will certainly fit the bill and not break the bank. — John Zientek

3sixteen X Schott NYC “Arabica Cowhide” Perfecto
3sixteen teamed up with Schott NYC to create a unique version of the latter brand’s iconic Perfecto motorcycle jacket. It uses an exclusive leather from Horween, dubbed “Arabica Cowhide,” that’s made from a supple hide with a deep brown color and a hard “sugary” surface application that will break up with wear, showing the lighter brown shade beneath. Only 100 jackets will be made, and they’ll go on sale December 20th for $1,100 at select stores and at 3sixteen’s website.— Andrew Connor

Fully Restored Range Rover by Legacy Overland
Land Rover Defenders seem to get all the glory these days, but Legacy Overland’s Project balmoral — an immaculate ’73 Range Rover frame-off restoration — deserves the spotlight. Finished in Bahama Gold and sporting a completely redone interior with velvet cloth seats with Palomino trim finishings, the Range Rover is a perfect way to show how capable off-roaders don’t need to skimp on luxury to be adept in the dirty stuff. — Bryan Campbell

Canyon Spectral 2018 Mountain Bike
There have been plenty of reasons to get excited about Canyon bikes in 2017 (especially if they live in the US), but the year isn’t done yet, and neither is Canyon. Today the German bicycle company revealed the 2018 update for its trail powerhouse, the Spectral. The mountain bike features an all-new rear suspension and linkage and is designed with a range of weatherproof upgrades including an integrated seat post clamp and cables that allow riders to focus more on riding and less on maintenance. — Tanner Bowden

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One
If you’re on the pulse of the gaming world, you’ll undoubtedly have heard about PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. It’s one of the most popular games of the year, and sets online players against each other in a Counter-Strike-style shootout, except the map keeps getting smaller and smaller during the round, forcing players closer together, which ultimately ends in a massive king-of-the-hill style melee. Then the next round begins. Up until now, the game has only been available on PC, but now you can download it on your Xbox. The game is enhanced for the Xbox One X, too.–Tucker Bowe

Fresh Deals

Get Your Choice of High-End Mountain Bike for Up to 50% Off
Simply put, this is one of the best mountain bike sales we’ve ever seen. Rarely do bikes this impressive end up on sale, and even more rare are the times they are on sale for greater than 25% off. But right now at Jenson USA, quality trail, downhill and XC mountain bikes are on sale for dirt cheap — up to half off. Some of the highlights include a Kona Process, Niner Jet 9 RDO and a Yeti SB6. There are tons of bikes to choose from in tons of sizes. If gravel and road are more your speed, there are plenty of options for you available as well.

Deal: Get Dyson’s Wireless Handheld Vacuum for 45% Off
Dyson makes great, albeit very expensive devices for the home. If you’re like me, however, it’s difficult to justify spending several hundreds of dollars on a vacuum that I’d only use a few times a year. An alternative option is to shop for manufacturer refurbished devices — you can score a great deal and still get a top-quality machine.

If you’re looking for a handheld vacuum, for your car or for those simple incidents where you don’t want bust out the big guns, you can get the highly-rated Dyson V6 on eBay for $130 (here) — that’s $110 or 45-percent off its normal $240 price tag. Yes, it’s manufacturer refurbished device, but eBay offers a 30-day return policy.

And if you’re wondering, a new D6 is going for $216 on Amazon (here).

Amazon’s Sonos Sale Is Your Best Chance to Save on Multi-Room Hi-Fi Speakers
If Sonos speakers are on your holiday shopping list, you can save a decent chunk of change by heading over to Amazon. Virtually all of Sonos’s speaker offerings are 10% off, with the exception of the Play:1 which is 33% off. Even if you’re just shopping for yourself, the Sonos Play:1 makes for an incredible impulse buy. We know from experience.

Instant Pot’s Most Powerful Model Is 53% Off Right Now
Instant Pot helped ignite a passion for pressure cooking and the brand’s appliances — which function as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, steamer and rice cooker — have a cult-like following amongst home chefs. But for those who have been sheepish about adopting the brand’s devices, Instant Pot’s most powerful model, the Ultra, has just gotten a massive 53% markdown. In addition to its pre-set functions, its “ULTRA” function allows users to granularly adjust temperature, cooking time and pressurization, adding to its utility (and even turning it into a sous vide circulator). Originally $300, you can get it for just $140 at Sur La Table.

These Versatile Suede Shoes Are Now 50% Off
The Jones suede derby from Frye is now 50% off at Nordstrom Rack. This classic silhouette features a plain toe, a welt-stitched midsole and a lightly cushioned footbed. It’s offered in rich chestnut suede, a beautifully textured leather that can easily be dressed up or dressed down. If you’re looking to invest in a new pair of versatile shoes for daily wear in the office, these are a solid option that won’t let you down.
