November 20, 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.


American watchmaking is a growing sector in the watch world. While US-made is still a young market, Weiss Watches is one of the leading pioneers in that realm. And its American Issue Field Watch is a prime example of what American watchmaking can offer.

This 42mm timepiece features an American movement (the CAL 1003) machined in the Weiss workshop and assembled by Cameron Weiss in an over-80-hour process. It features an open, sapphire crystal case back to show off the rhodium-plated movement. The dial is made from a solid piece of naval brass and is hand-painted in white with black accents. It’s finished with a waterproof olive green Cordura canvas strap for a superb field watch handmade on a limited basis in the US.

Weiss will be offering complimentary engraving with the purchase of a timepiece through midnight on Cyber Monday. It doesn’t require a coupon code and will be applied at checkout if both a watch and engraving are in the cart.

Fresh Deals


Goodyear Tires Black Friday Sale
Save up to $300: It’s that time of year again where you’ll start to hear the strong suggestions, cries and pleading to winter tires on your car. It’s not the tire companies wanting to squeeze an extra buck out of you — winter tires provide genuine performance and give you back the grip you desperately need when the temperatures drop and the weather turns for the worst. However, one of the biggest excuses to not shell out for a whole sperate set of tires is it can seem like a pricey upgrade. Well, that excuse is out the window this week because Goodyear Tires are up to $300 off through November 27. — Bryan Campbell


AeroPress Coffee Maker
Save 20%: Since its introduction, the AeroPress has garnered somewhat of a cult following in the coffee world. It started out as a new, compact way to brew coffee, making it ideal for coffee addicts constantly on the go, traveling or camping where packing light is a must. Now the AeroPress World Championships exists, if that paints a better picture of the little coffee maker’s current popularity and status. Want to know what all the hype is about? Well, today you can get one for 20% off.— Bryan Campbell


Fellow Stagg EKG+ Coffee Kettle
Save 20% The first moment you lay eyes on Fellow’s matte black electric kettle, you understand what you’re seeing is ideal Instagram fodder. Then you wonder if it’s any good.

We’re here to tell you that it is.

The Stagg EKG heats more quickly than most of its competition, and it sports a perfect, slow-pouring gooseneck spout. It’s incredibly simple to use, as the only controls on the thing are a knob to adjust temperature, a switch for Fahrenheit or Celcius and an On/Off switch. Oh, and it has a timer built in — a helpful touch for the pour-over coffee fiend in your life.

The EKG+, Fellow’s Bluetooth-connected version, is currently 20 percent off on Huckberry, bringing it down to just $159.


Yamazaki Home Furniture
Save 30% Yamazaki, a Japanese furniture brand that shares a name with a pretty popular whisky label, is something of a unicorn in the home-goods space. It is an established company with more than 100 years of operation that makes simple organization products that both look good and don’t cost a whole lot.
Things like side tables, kitchen organizers, key hooks and all that other stuff you don’t want to spend extraordinary amounts of cash on.
Today, Huckberry’s entire brand catalog is 30 percent off, which is just about as cheap as we’ve seen these pieces.


Save $20 on a Roku Streaming Stick
Save 40%: Ditching cable and picking up a streaming service is incredibly easy and ridiculously enticing if you haven’t done so already. To make the decision to switch a little easier, you can save a massive 40 percent on the Roku streaming stick today.

Setting up the Roku is as simple as plugging it into a USB port in your TV and connecting to the internet. After that, you have Netflix, Amazon TV, music, Hulu and 500,000 movies and TV show episodes at your fingertips. Take the streaming stick with you, plug it into a laptop or friend’s TV and use the Roku app for a remote. As far as streaming access per price, the Roku streaming stick is one of the top ways to connect. — Bryan Campbell


Velomacchi Black Friday Sale
Save 30%: Right now, though Black Friday, you can save 30 percent across the entire Velomacchi site. All Speedway bags, from the 35-liter Giro and 28-liter Backpack to the 40-liter backpack and 50-liter duffel are up for grabs. Even if your weekend adventure motorcycle and your commuter bike are one and the same, now’s the time to kit it out with the tool roll and impact pouches that’ll stand up to the ride. Velomacchi gear is military-spec after all. There’s no doubt it’ll handle the daily grind or a weekend warrior routine. — Bryan Campbell
