Today In Gear: Peter Manning’s Proportionally-Made Clothing, the Most Hyped Grills In Grilling & More


May 16, 2019 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.


For shorter guys, finding well-fitting outwear can be difficult. Even if you can get something tailored, details like the pockets and collar heights will still be out of proportion. This common issue is the reason Peter Manning began designing clothing specifically for shorter guys. And back in 2014, the first piece of outerwear the brand took on was the Tribeca Field Jacket.

The Tribeca Field Jacket is a modern take on the classic field jacket design, and it comes in three colors: navy, olive and tan. It offers plenty of versatility that can be utilized in layering to make it a year-round favorite — it styles well with a t-shirt and jeans for those cool spring and summer evenings but can also be layered up for year-round use. Double button cuffs and interior drawstrings make the fit adjustable, and details like sleeve length, body length, collar size and pocket size are all perfectly proportioned to ensure it’s the right fit for the not-so-tall guy straight off the rack — no alteration required.

Fresh Deals


Black Diamond ReVolt Headlamp
Save 25%: Black Diamond sets itself apart with all of the hyper-specific technical climbing equipment that it makes, but it still nails one of the most basic camping essentials: the headlamp. The ReVolt is one of its more feature-laden models, with multiple dimmable light modes for close-up tasks and long distances as well as strobe and night vision settings. It’s waterproof too, but perhaps best of all it has a hybrid battery system that lets you power it with three AAA batteries or via micro USB.

The ReVolt is currently on sale at Backcountry for 25 percent off, along with some other awesome headlamps from Black Diamond, including our favorite Spot 325 as well as the rugged Storm 375. — Tanner Bowden


Orient Bambino Automatic Dress Watch
Save 54%: The Orient Bambino is a stalwart low-cost favorite amongst many watch enthusiasts for pairing an automatic, hacking and hand winding-capable movement with a clean, vintage-inspired design. You also get a nicely domed dial and crystal, and a date at 3 o’clock, all at a relatively low price. — Andrew Connor

2018 iPad Pro (11-inch and 12.9-inch)
Save Up to $100: If you’ve been considering picking up an iPad Pro, there’s never been a better time. Amazon has dropped the prices of the latest model for the first time since release. The smaller of the two tablets, the 11-inch iPad Pro, normally starts at $799 (Wi-Fi only, 64GB), but Amazon is selling it for $50 off. The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro normally starts at $999 (Wi-Fi only, 64GB), but Amazon is selling it for $100 off. There are deals on cellular and larger storage configurations, too.

Bose SoundSport In-Ear Headphones
Save $50: Bose SoundSport are wired in-ear headphones that typically cost $100, but you can find them at Walmart and Best Buy for half that right now. They’ve been around for a few years and aren’t noise-canceling, which is what Bose is famous for, but they’re still a solid budget option for anybody who still relies on their smartphone’s headphone jack.
