Outdoors and Fitness

The James Brand Elko

Would they recommend it? Yes

“This is the perfect EDC knife. Like everything else James Brand makes, the Elko is solid, beautiful in its simplicity and multi-functional. It fits easily into your coin pocket or attached to your keyring. This small knife punches well above its weight.”
— Mikef, Novato

Filson C.C.F. Quilted Utility Jacket

Would they recommend it? Yes

“I picked this up a few weeks back and finally got to break it out this weekend. It’s light enough during the transitional weather while providing much needed warmth.” — Sheraz, New York City

CRKT LCK

Would they recommend it? Yes

“My new EDC. I love how light and sharp it is. The sheepsfoot blade is great for fine tasks but still tough enough to handle harder ones.” — Sean, Seattle

Fitbit Charge 3

Would they recommend it? Yes

“Great every day fitness tracker. I wear it to monitor sleep, steps, and daily heart rate. Overall I can’t complain as the functionality and app are extremely user friendly. As my fitness journey continues, I can see myself upgrading to the Versa 2 or something more complex.” — Blake, San Francisco

Specialized S-Works Enduro

Would they recommend it? No

“It’s the evolution of an already good bike, but not in the way I hoped. It has gone from a back country all-day epic descent bike to a light [downhill] race bike.”
— Brian, San Francisco

Tech

Wyze Bulb

Would they recommend it? Yes

“I don’t know about you, but I hate getting out of bed to turn the lights off. Problem solved. They don’t have all the fancy features of something like a Hue bulb, but at $30 for a four-pack, they’re the cheapest smart bulbs around. Bonus: they integrate with Wyze’s cameras and sensors.” — Ari, Los Angeles

Canon EOS R

Would they recommend it? Yes

“I switched from the Canon 1D X MK II, and I couldn’t be happier to now work with a smaller body that’s still super capable of delivering high quality photos and video.”
— Sebastian, Copenhagen

Sennheiser MOMENTUM 2 Headphones (Discontinued)

grey_placeholder

Would they recommend it? Yes

“All I needed was that first song. That first song furthered the inveterate quality of Sennheiser headphones. Alongside the impeccable sound, the headphones provide long lasting comfort with the foam, noise-canceling ear cups. Plugged into my Hi-Fi with my favorite vinyl turning is perfection.” — Patrick, Melbourne

Style

TIGI Bed Head Matte Wax

Would they recommend it? Yes

“It’s a matte clay with a great finish. It’s easy to rinse off and can be adjusted during the day.” — Markus, Germany
