What's New, Now

Today in Gear: Summer Hiking Boots, Apple’s New iPad and More


March 27, 2018 Briefings By Photo by Danner

We’ve made some new adjustments to Today in Gear, including a new publishing time of 4 p.m. in order to capture all the day’s new stories. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.



Danner Mountain 600 EnduroWeave Boots
Not all hiking boots are great for summer. Some are bulky, heavy and way way too warm. These new Danner Mountain 600 EnduroWeave boots aren’t that at all. They’re lightweight and breathable, stitched with a moisture-wicking air mesh lining with ventilating technology. They’re comfortable, too, with a Vibram SPE midsole for that extra cushion and support. And at their heart, they’re also really rugged hiking boots. The upper is made of a carbon-washed, woven textile, making the EnduroWeave extremely durable and abrasion-resistant. And the Vibram outsole with “Megagrip” lugs is designed to prevent you from falling on slick surfaces. Maybe best of all, the Mountain 600 EnduroWeave boots have the old-school vibe that Danner is known for, making them a good fit for the trail or a casual dinner party.

Bonavita Electric Kettle
Save 40%+: It’s easy to get bogged down in the hoopla of coffee gadgetry. There’s a great many shiny toys out there that take coffee-making to new levels, but for those who just want an ideal cup of pour-over without the sequins of smart-touch-LCD-wifi-enabled devices there’s Bonavita’s 1 Liter Electric Water Kettle which, today, is at an all-time low price. The brushed stainless steel kettle is charmingly uncomplicated — it uses a 1000 watt heater to bring water to temperature quickly, a spare gooseneck spout to pour water slowly and it turns on with a button press (and shuts off automatically). Bonavita prides themselves on this simplicity, an approach that’s allowed two of their home coffee brewers (the BV1900TD and BV1900TS) to be among the mere 13 brewers approved by the Specialty Coffee Association.
The Bonavita Electric Kettle, which typically retails for $60, is on sale for $35 now. — Will Price

Save 50%: If there’s anyone who knows fleece, it’s Woolrich — they’ve been doing it for over 180 years. So when Woolrich puts its woolen know-how into suede slippers, you know it’s going to be good, and your feet will thank you for cocooning them in such incredible coziness. Woolrich Footwear Fleece-Lined Slippers are, on a regular day, ridiculously affordable at $50, but today, on Huckberry you can get them half off.— Bryan Campbell


Leatherman Multi-Tool Sale
Save 20%: Leatherman multi-tools last for life. They’ll help you survive everything from camping trips to adventures to your day-to-day. Each multi-tool comes equipped with a wrench, pliers, wire cutters and a knife — and up to 21 other tools. Right now, all Leatherman products are down 20%. You won’t see the discount until the item is in the cart. — Meg Lappe
