Today In Gear: The Bed Built to Last a Lifetime, Rivian Will Revolutionize Overlanding & More


July 17, 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.


Your bed is the most used and often overlooked piece of furniture in your home. Platform bed frames have long been an afterthought — frequently they’re poorly designed and disposable. But The Bed from Thuma is the opposite: It’s everything you could want with considered, durable design that’s built to last from repurposed wood. Thuma’s platform bed frame combines smooth minimalist appeal and Japanese joinery technique construction to create a timeless frame. You can snap up a Thuma platform bed in all the standard mattress sizes and it’ll ship free of charge right to your door. With simple construction and design, you can also put it together in a matter of minutes — no tools required. Built strong and sturdy, The Bed is backed by Thuma’s lifetime warranty so it can take anything you throw on it.

If you’re training for any fall races, now is an excellent time to stock up on shoes that you can rotate through (one for long, one for easy and one for speed runs) so your shoes stay fresher for longer — your legs and feet will thank you. Shop the two sales on Jackrabbit.com today. — Meg Lappe
