December 20, 2017 Briefings By Photo by Danner

New & Noteworthy Releases


Danner Mountain Light
Danner’s Mountain Light transforms the saying “take a hike” into a compliment. The Made in the USA boot combines Gore-Tex waterproofing, a lightweight, shock-absorbing Vibram Kletterlift outsole that has grip for days and Danner’s stitchdown construction into one shoe that’s capable of handling any terrain. More importantly, it’s also comfortable, stable and, thanks to Danner’s lace-to-toe system, secure as a dream. Plus, the all-black colorway guarantees no one will want to get in your way.



McIntosh XRT2.1K Floor Standing Loudspeakers
I’ve you’ve ever looked at Bowers & Wilkins’s 805 D3 speakers and thought “those aren’t expernsive or futuristic enough”, McIntosh’s newest floor standing speakers are for you. On the front of the speakers, what looks like a grill is actually an array of 45 3/4″ tweeters. They also have a 2,000 watt power rating, six subwoofers and stand seven feet tall. Yes, seven feet tall. — AJ Powell



Final Cut Pro 10.4
The best video editing software available just got a little better — an update perfectly timed to coincide with Apple’s release of the new iMac Pro. The latest version includes 360 VR editing, advanced color grading, HDR video compatibility and much more. This year’s gift-unwrapping videos are gonna be sick. — Nick Caruso



Morgan EV3
Morgan’s electric-powered 3-Wheeler first debuted at the Geneva Motor Show way back in 2016, and now finally the car is confirmed to go on sale next year. The production version will feature a 21 kWh lithium-ion battery powering a 46.7-horsepower, liquid-cooled electric motor produced by Frazer-Nash, the company behind London’s all-electric taxi. Top Gear reports that makes the EV3 good for a 0 to 60mph time of around seven seconds, and the car should cost about £30,000 (a little over $40,000) when it goes on sale. — Andrew Connor



Neptune Convertible Art Lens Set
Compact, lightweight and interchangable, the Neptune Convertible Art Lens System gives you all the best a prime lense has to offer and nearly none of the draw backs. Three interchangeable lenses — 35mm, 50mm and 80mm — give you incredible versitility in the field while maintaining image quality and perfromance, whether you’re shooting portaits, architecture or action shots with digital or film. And all for a fraction of what similar individual lenses would cost separately. — Bryan Campbell

Fresh Deals


Before You Buy That New Year’s Gym Membership Consider This Navy SEAL-Designed Home Gym Setup
In roughly two weeks, you’re going to make a New Year’s resolution to be better about exercise. You’ll probably start by signing a year-long contract with your local gym (you won’t be alone, Gold’s Gym recently reported that its traffic increases by 40 percent during December and January). Maybe you’ll have a productive month of increased fitness — perhaps even two — but then your resolve will waver, and that expensive gym membership will begin to accumulate dust.

It’s ok, more than half of all gym memberships go unused (gym business models count on this). There is a better way though: the home gym. A good home gym doesn’t have to entail heavy and bulky, not to mention expensive, equipment. In fact, it can be portable, something that you can carry on an airplane and set up in a hotel room. It’s been proven by TRX, a suspension training system designed by a Navy SEAL. TRX takes mere seconds to set up, works indoors and out, and facilitates training programs sourced from the military and professional athletes.

For a limited time, you can purchase the TRX Tactical Suspension Trainer or the Rip Trainer for 20% off, which is guaranteed to be less than that gym membership you’re about to start considering.



Get $50 Off This Super Sharp Canon Pancake Lens
A pancake lens is an easy addition to any camera kit. In general, they offer superior image quality over most zoom lenses and a great entry into prime lenses. Plus, most are relatively inexpensive. If you’re looking for a good deal, Canon is offering its 40mm f/2.8 STM lens for $50 off. You can buy it directly from Canon (here) or from a trusted retailer like Amazon (here) or B&H Photo (here).

Save 25% on Fujifilm Mini 7s and Gift the Perfect Stocking Stuffer
The Fujifilm Mini 7s is as basic as a point-and-shoot camera gets without going full-on disposable, but that’s where its appeal lies. A simple and incredibly user-friendly nature makes the 7s skirt the line between vintage Polaroid camera and a toy, which is why it ticks all the boxes for a perfect, fun stocking stuffer. And today, you can get a 7s for $40 ($46 with film). If you’re looking for last-minute gift ideas, this deal is hard to beat.



Get a Cozy Pair of Woolrich Slippers for Just $25
A great pair of slippers can make all the difference when scuttling about your home on cold winter mornings. If you (or one of your giftees) doesn’t have a pair, Huckberry is offering solid markdowns on a host of slippers from Pensylvania wool-weaving staple Woolrich through December 20th. That means you can snag Woolrich’s classic Scuff Slipper for just $25 (about 23% off). It pairs a cozy, foot-friendly fleece construction with a rubber outsole that’s ideal for making quick trips outside.



This $100 Sous Vide Cooker Would Be a Great Last-Minute Gift
Sous Vide cooking — long a staple in high-end restaurants — has now been given new life in the home kitchen thanks to affordable, compact circulators from brands like Anova. Anova’s Bluetooth-equipped, 800-watt circulator is an excellent option for just about any home cook: It’ll easily fit into a soup pot and its smartphone connectivity allows the user to monitor their food make temperature adjustments from anywhere in the home. Amazon has just taken 33% off the at home cooker, so you can get it right now for just $100.



Mountain Hardwear’s Burly, Waterproof Duffel Is 20% Off
There are a lot of choices when it comes to duffel bags. Canvas or leather, sporty or stylish, and then there’s what color — but in the end what makes a duffel great is its ability to carry and protect all your stuff when you’re on the road.

There’s nothing flashy about the OutDry Duffel; no shiny plastic-like fabric or bright “outdoorsy” colors. But make no mistake, this bag is capable of taking a beating. Mountain Hardwear’s OutDry tech entails a custom-shaped waterproof membrane laminated to the bag’s inner, which seals fabrics and seams all at once. Just to be sure it worked, the brand sealed the bag away in a rain room for 24 hours, so although the fabric may not feel waterproof, rest assured that your stuff will remain dry once inside. The simplistic look won’t draw attention to would-be bag thieves, either.

The OutDry Duffel is currently 20% off at Backcountry and is available in sizes from carry-on to fits-everything-you-own.



Save $153 on These Rugged Red Wing Heritage Boots
Now at Brooks Brothers, you can save $153 on the Red Wing Heritage Beckman boots. Made from Cigar Featherstone leather, they feature Goodyear-welt construction, a Roccia outsole and flat waxed laces. Versatile and rugged, these boots will stand up to whatever you put them through and will look even better as the years pass. And after you check these out, make sure to peruse the rest of the clearance section at Brooks Brothers — it’s now an additional 25% off.



Deal: Save $450 on LG’s Stunning Flagship OLED TV
The C7P is LG’s flagship OLED TV. It has the same stunning 4K picture quality as the brand’s high-end W7 OLED, just without the wallpaper-thin design and extremely high price tag. We also selected it as one of the best OLED TVs in 2017. It’s an excellent TV to consider if you’re looking to make the jump to OLED, and eBay is currently offering a 65-inch C7P for $2,249 — that’s roughly $450 less than what it’s going for on Best Buy and Amazon (which is $2,697).

Introducing the PATROL Sweatshirt
It’s simple, modern and here just in time for winter. We’ve sweated the fit and feel of it with a best of both worlds result: you’ll love the not-too-heavy wearability yet not-too-light feel. It sports just the right amount of warmth to be worn alone (underneath a shirt-jacket or insulated coat) or over a t-shirt for colder weather. We’ve also designed the PATROL logo with a tone-on-tone effect that pops enough to show your support without being a walking billboard.

Made from a premium tri-blend material and printed with water-based inks. And of course, the PATROL sweatshirt is 100% American-made.
