Featured Products

2020 Toyota GR Supra

After a 20-year absence, the Supra is back, and its sites are aimed directly at the Porsche Cayman. Co-designed with BMW and sharing some of the Bavarian brand’s components – notably, its inline-six engine – the Supra features near-perfect weight distribution in a small, lithe package.


Traeger Ironwood Wood Pellet Grill

Trager’s Ironwood grill is an app-connected, computer controlled grill and smoker that runs on wood pelletes, Traeger’s trademark fuel source. It makes grilling incredibly easy – fill wil pellets, set the temp, place the meat and monitor remotely.


DJI Osmos Action Camera

Entering the action camera market is the Osmo, a brand-new action camera by DJI. The company is well-known for its electronic image stabilization technology, notably used in its drones and gimbals; in the Osmo, it’s fully put to use. Aimed directly at the GoPro Hero7, DJI’s new camera performs similarly for $50 less.


Veilance Rhomb Rain Jacket

Veilance, the brandless mega-high-end wing of Arc’Teryx, is known for sleek, technical apparel – the Rhmob takes that to the next level. It’s bewilderingly lightweight as well as breathable and completely waterproof.

Astor + Banks Sea Ranger

Chicago-based Astor+Banks is launching a Kickstarter campaign for four versions of the $850 Sea Ranger diving watch, which will offer early bird pricing of roughly $550. The automatic watch features a Siww movement and will be available four colorways.
