Today in Gear: Atlas Pet Co’s Dog Harness Systems, the 6 Best Cold-Weather Running Sweatshirts & More


November 19, 2018 Briefings By

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.


Atlas Pet Company made one of the best dog leashes ever, and after months of work and years of research, the company finally unveiled the successor to the totally badass Lifetime Leash.

The Lifetime Harness is lightweight, quick-drying and ultra-versatile, manufactured with materials and techniques more familiar to outdoor retailers like REI than PetSmart. It has three points of adjustment, and it’s made with heavy-duty 1-inch reflective nylon webbing that’s double-reinforced with outward-facing seams for increased comfort. The Lifetime Harness also features a secure magnetic buckle design and a Martingale-style chest attachment that keeps your pup from pulling by redirecting their energy to the side. And it, of course, comes with a lifetime guarantee if your dog were somehow to destroy it.

Fresh Deals

Iron & Resin, based out of its blue-collar hometown of Ventura, California focuses on the philosophies of American made and made to last. Its unique classics feel part John Wayne and part James Dean — the sort of garments your grandfather might hand down to you and the kind you can wear the hell out of and still have when you’re 70.

Because of the high-quality and dedication to craftsmanship, Iron & Resin rarely puts its signature pieces on sale. However, for Black Friday, starting today until Nov. 25, Iron & Resin is including these iconic items like the Scout Jacket, the Rambler Vest, the Midway Jacket and the Tatham Overalls in the Black Friday sale. The more you spend, the more you can save. Get $25 off orders of $100, $50 off orders of $200 and $100 off orders of $300 (limitations do apply). That means you can get $100 off their Scout Jacket, which never happens. Plus there’s free ground shipping on all U.S. orders.





Spend More, Save More at Bonobos
Save up to 30% From now until Friday, if you spend $150 or more you’ll get 25 percent off your order. Spend $250 or more and you’ll get 30 percent off. All you have to do to take advantage of the deal is enter the code DEALWEEK at checkout.— Justin Fenner


Roku TV Wireless Speakers
Save $50: Most new TVs look gorgeous but don’t sound great; they’re so thin that they can’t properly house good speakers. The other problem is that upgrading to a soundbar or receiver-based system can be expensive. Enter the Roku TV Wireless Speakers. The 2.0 system only costs $200 and is designed to pair perfectly with any Roku smart TV. The speakers connect over wi-fi and you just need to follow the setup instructions on your TV. There’s no dealing with any wires or finding the right HDMI or optical port on your TV. It’s easy. Roku partners with a ton of big TV manufacturers, including TCL, Sharp, Hisense, Philips and Insignia, so there’s a good chance you already own a TV that can easily and affordably be improved. And now through Cyber Monday, you can buy the Roku TV Wireless Speakers for $150 instead of $200 – that’s 25-percent off.


Cheap Living Room Furniture
Save Up to 80% Let’s be clear, the items in Wayfair’s Black Friday deal section for furniture don’t come highly recommended or regarded in any way. Instead, they come cheap — very cheap — and today are even cheaper, thanks to the greatest internet sales holiday of them all.

So while you may not plan to use this $60 side table for the duration of your life, it’ll almost certainly do the job its given. We picked out some of the standout deals below to get you started.


Herman Miller Furniture
Save 15% When it comes to understanding mid-century modern, there are few names more relevant than Herman Miller. The Michigan company is home to works by Charles and Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi, George Nelson and a dozen more future-shaping designers of the time. Today, the works of all those names (and many more) are 15 percent off at Design Within Reach. Yes, this includes the legendary Eames lounge chair, Noguchi coffee table, Nelson clock and the like. We’ve pulled some of our favorites below to give you an idea of what’s out there.



Our Favorite Beard Trimmer Is on Sale
Save 43% If you’ve got a beard, a reliable electric trimmer is a crucial tool in your grooming arsenal. Today, Wahl’s stainless steel 9818 model — the one that we crowned the best all-around trimmer you can buy earlier this year — is on sale for 43 percent off.— Justin Fenner


Made In Cookware
Save 15%+ Made In is a relatively new cookware manufacturer out of Austin, Texas that has yet to release a product that’s disappointed upon testing. Its stainless steel pans, award-winning lid, non-stick skillet and its very new chef’s knife have all impressed and outperformed their prices.
The approach is a direct-to-consumer one, and is essentially aimed at creating long-lasting cookware with stable prices, uninflated by in-store and third-party markups.
Today, its entire site is 15 percent off (you’ll see the discount in the cart), with scaling discount percentage tied to the size of your cart.


Saturdays NYC Garments, Accessories and More
Save 25%:New York-based clothing brand Saturdays NYC is offering Black Friday savings for a much longer period than many other brands. Though the sale started last weekend, you can still save 25 percent on all items until November 30 with the code Friends25. Pick from well-made wardrobe staples like sweaters, tees, pants and jackets, or choose from an array of footwear, accessories or surf gear (e.g. wetsuits for every water temperature) — there’s something for everyone. — John Zientek


Tivoli Portable Hi-Fi System
Save 20%: The Tivoli Portable Three Hi-Fi System acts as a classic radio tuner but also utilizes Bluetooth to connect to your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or other Bluetooth devices — as is the standard in today’s massive world of music players. Today through Black Friday, you can get the Hi-Fi system at a 20% discount and save $50. — Bryan Campbell


Au Sabot Le Thiers Pocket Knife
Save 20%: France is the gravitational center of the culinary world, so it’s fitting that the country also produces some of the finest cutlery available. The focal point of that industry is Thiers, a town in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region that’s home to roughly one hundred knife making companies as well as a museum dedicated to the art and process. Thiers blades aren’t just for chefs though; knives of every kind are created there, including Au Sabot’s Le Thiers pocket knife, which is currently 20 percent off at Huckberry for Black Friday.

Au Sabot’s ode to Thiers is a handsome folding knife with a 3.5-inch blade made of carbon steel that’s available with handles made of hardwoods like rosewood and olive as well as more exotic materials like the horn of African buffalo. The knife’s form was developed by the Confrerie du Couteau Le Thiers, which means “Brotherhood of the Thiers Knife,” during the nineties to pay homage to the town’s 600-year history crafting blades. Fifteen local masters worked over months to design the Le Theirs. Au Sabot makes its version by hand in its factory there and includes a fold-out corkscrew in the handle, which, as the French might say, is quite à-propos. — Tanner Bowden


Xbox One X
Save $100: To celebrate the Xbox One X’s one-year anniversary, as well as Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Walmart is selling a 1TB console for $399 – that’s a $100 off. You can pick up 1TB bundles with the latest Fallout or NBA 2K games, if you really want those games, for $429.


TRX Home Fitness Equipment
Save 35%: 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 Black Friday, you can purchase TRX’s fitness products for 35 percent off at Huckberry. The selection includes the Strong System, which is the company’s original use-anywhere strap system, as well as other home workout essentials like a mat, jump rope and resistance bands. They’re all guaranteed to be less than that gym membership you’re about to start considering after the holidays wind down. — Tanner Bowden


Outerknown Warehouse Sale
Save up to 70%:While many retailers are gearing up for Black Friday sales at the end of the week, California-based clothing brand Outerknown is offering some substantial savings today. Currently, you can save up to 70 percent on past seasons’ styles at the brand’s Warehouse Sale. Because Outerknown focuses on perennial wardrobe staples, these garments look just as fresh today as they did when they were released. Pick from tees, pants, sweaters and more — prices start at just $19. — John Zientek
