New & Noteworthy Releases
Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL
Breville’s latest kitchen gadget is a compact juicer that’s faster and quieter than other Breville models. The real kicker here, however, is an extra large chute (3.5 inches) that reduces the amount of chopping needed before juicing. — Jack Seemer
Tag Heuer Connected Modular 41
Tag Heuer’s Connected Modular 41 is a smaller take on the company’s Connected Modular 45 that starts at $300 less than its bigger brother. As its modular name implies, buyers can customize virtually every aspect of its aesthetics save for the watch’s screen. Inside you’ll find specs similar to other top-tiered smartwatches equipped with Android Wear 2.0 including built-in GPS, NFC, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, but you’ll pay hefty a premium for the customized case and the Tag Heuer name. — Tucker Bowe
Tumi Merge Collection
Tumi describes the new Merge Collection as “a relaxed, lightweight luggage collection for adventures big and small offering a wide assortment of expandable luggage and wheeled duffels.” It includes six styles and sizes ranging from a wheeled backpack to an expandable carry-on.— Meg Lappe
Askov Finlayson x Target Partnership
In a trifecta of sorts, the Minnesotan-based designer Askov Finlayson partnered with MN-founded Target just in time for the Super Bowl LII (hosted in the Great Lakes state). The limited-edition collection includes sweaters, scarves, hats, and mittens, all built to protect you from the cold winters for which the north is known. Items are currently available at Target.com, or in select Minnesotan Target stores. — Meg Lappe
Fischer Ranger Free Ski Boots
Fischer’s Ranger Free ski boot is designed to be a one-boot quiver with both alpine and touring capabilities. It weighs just 1,540 grams and features Vibram’s GripWalk soles as well as a walking mechanism that’s integrated into the top buckle, which allows for 55 degrees of lateral rotation when hoofing it. — Tanner Bowden
The North Face x [email protected] Ok Base Camp Duffel
I love The North Face’s classic 71-liter Base Camp duffel because it can transform into a backpack in tight situations, like when your overhead bin is full. This limited edition version is part of the new The North Face and Olivia Kim collaboration. It’s bright primary color scheme is inspired by Tibetan prayer flags, a theme which extends across the entire collection of beanies, parkas, hoodies, and jackets. Everything in this bold series is available now, both online and in select Nordstrom stores, but don’t be surprised if the stock sells out quickly.

Three Corter Leather Belts for $99
Save $53: Based in Allston, Massachusetts, Corter Leather makes a range of quality leather goods at its solar-powered workshop. Now on its site, you can get three leather belts for $99 with the code NEWYEAR. The belts you’ll receive are cut from vegetable-tanned harness leather, English bridle leather and latigo leather, and feature Chicago screws so you can easily add your own buckle. This is a solid deal on well-made belts that will only get better the more you wear them. — John Zientek
Spend $150 at Tracksmith and Get a Free Singlet
Free Singlet: The Boston-based brand Tracksmith pumps out classic track-inspired basics updated with technical fabrics to outfit you for more than just your miles. When you spend $150 on their site, (easy to do with one jacket purchase, or a top and short combo) you get access to a free navy Van Cortlandt Singlet, originally $65. Named for the Bronx park that’s well-known in the running community for its iconic cross-country running loop, the singlet is ideal to wear under long sleeves during winter runs, on its own when the weather warms up, or even for race day. — Meg Lappe
Twelve South HiRise for iPhone and iPad
Save $15: This excellent charging stand is an ideal fit for a nightstand or work desk. It’s not a wireless charger, however, and needs your existing Lightning cable to work, but it’s a super convenient way of charging your iPhone or iPad. It’s also makes a great dock for your Apple TV remote. Twelve South has released a newer, but very similar looking version of this stand called the Twelve South HiRise 2 ($40) — It’s technically a little smaller and twice as heavy than the older model — which explains the heavily discounted price of this model. Still, $15 for a stand that’ll work with most of your Apple devices is a pretty good deal. (Note: the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is too big to work with this stand.) — Tucker Bowe
Philips Sonicare 2 Series
Save $41: An electric toothbrush doesn’t have to be expensive — this excellent model is going for just $29. The 2 Series is a solid entry-level electric toothbrush with a number of easy to use features. It has a smartimer to encourage users to brush for two minutes. And its EasyStart feature gradually increases the power of the brush over its first 14 uses to help transition users over from a manual toothbrush. — Tucker Bowe
Shun Kitchen Knives
Save $278: In the world of mass-market kitchen knives, it doesn’t get much better than Shun. The Japanese manufacturer is known for its ultra-thin, ultra-sharp blades. They’re less utilitarian than most German knives, which excel at less refined jobs like breaking down a chicken. But when it comes to slicing, Shun blades easily outperform the European competition. Right now, you can grab a four-piece set of Shun knives from Williams Sonoma for just $160 — that’s $278 off the suggested retail price. It includes a six-inch chef’s knife, serrated utility knife, small paring knife and wooden storage block that can also house a honing steel rod (not included). — Jack Seemer
Gitman Vintage Overdyed Oxford Shirt
Save 36%: Now at online retailer End, you can save 36% on this classic oxford shirt from Gitman Vintage. Made in America, it features a button-down collar, v-stitched chest pocket and a rear box pleat. This is a wardrobe staple fit for every man’s closet, so don’t wait — all sizes are still available. — John Zientek
Filson Briefcases, Computer Bags, Duffels and Backpacks
Save 25%: At its heart, Filson is an outdoor brand. It prides itself on crafting gear that’s both comfortable and durable (not to mention stylish) from tried-and-true materials like tin cloth canvas and Mackinaw wool. Filson originally outfitted miners and loggers heading into the wilds, but since those early days, it has expanded and adapted to fill the needs of long-time urbanites too. Filson offers a full collection of briefcases, computer bags, backpacks and duffles that are suited to life in the city (and beyond). Each piece is made with just as much attention to material detail as its rugged outdoor gear, and always with its trademark heritage American aesthetic. Right now, you can shop a large selection of these bags for 25% off at Brooks Brothers. — Tanner Bowden
Red Wing Postman Oxford Shoe
Save 62%: Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can get the Red Wing Heritage Postman Oxford for more than half off. Available in charcoal leather from the S.B. Foot Tanning Company, the shoe features a Goodyear welt, a leather insole and an Atlas Tred sole. Ideal for everyday wear, it’s a classic silhouette that you can dress up or down. — John Zientek
Yeti Hopper 12 Cooler
Save 11%: Yeti’s Hopper Flip was originally released as a smaller alternative to its wildly-popular tote-style soft coolers. It comes in a more traditional (and more portable) cube shape. But despite being one of the smallest coolers Yeti makes, the Flip is no small fry. The Flip 12 holds 16 pounds of ice on its own, or 13 beers (with a two-to-one ice-to-can ratio). The Flip is constructed just like its larger Hopper siblings, with ColdCell foam insulation on the sides, bottom and lid. That makes it equally suited to toting beers on the river, or carting lunch to the office.
Yeti recently reduced the price of the Hopper Flip 12 by 11%, which brings it down to $250. Note: The button below links to Amazon, but the Hopper Flip 12 is also available at this price directly from Yeti’s site. — Tanner Bowden
Vans Olk Skool Sneaker
Save 33%: Vans is the undisputed champion of causal, understated canvas sneakers. Now at Need Supply, you can get the Old Skool sneaker in an all-black colorway for just $40 ($20 off). It features a canvas upper, lace-up front, padded collar and reinforced toe cap. It’s 33% off an already-inexpensive shoe that has an iconic design and solid build. Why wait? — John Zientek
