Stantt DataFit Polo

Small, medium, and large do the job for a few, but attaining a perfect fit takes tailoring. Or something like Stantt’s DataFit sizing, originally launched with their button downs. It’s now made its way to the polo as well as the t-shirt, providing 75 distinct sizes for each that better accommodate the dimensions of your actual body and not some loose-fitting, “close enough” standard. Finding yours is as easy as submitting three measurements which they’ll then match to a size with their algorithm. Moreover, each of these shirts is made of super soft and durable 100% pima cotton, both pre-shrunk and with a reinforced collar on the polo. And if yours doesn’t fit you perfectly off the bat they’ll switch it until it does at zero additional cost to you.

Hard Graft Misfit Backpack

Hard Graft’s Misfit Backpack boasts a look that’s a first for the European leather crafter in a distinctively vintage way. Made of their premium vegetable tanned leather, it goes through a controlled wash process that creates a distressed look, feel, and color that pairs well with the cotton webbing used in both its shoulder straps and in the top-mounted grab handle. Nickle zippers grant access to a large main compartment as well as three extra pockets, two outside and another inside. Just keep in mind that there’s no padding or dedicated laptop compartment.

ONAK Foldable Canoe

Kayaks are unwieldy things. Canoes, even more so, limiting their ownership potential to just those who have room to store these ultra-long watercraft. The ONAK Foldable Canoe solves this problem by doing what its name says, packing down to a case on wheels that’s easy to roll along or even stash in the trunk of a car with drop-down back seats. It’s made of a Honeycomb Curv Polypropylene that’s highly buoyant and can be folded and unfolded thousands of times before weakening, forming a stiff canoe that sets up in about ten minutes — once you know what you’re doing. Taking it down is even faster, and a pair of adjustable paddles (optional, or bring your own) will fit in the case alongside the canoe.

Bristol Bullet Speedster

Rescued from insolvency but five years ago, Bristol’s back with its first car since its new ownership took the reigns: the timely 70th anniversary edition Bullet Speedster. Each model is hand made in Chichester and is as bold as it is big, with a powerful stance and an attention-grabbing aeronautics-inspired shape. Contrasting with its more traditional design is the use carbon fibre composites in the making of its body for high rigidity and an overall low weight. This shows on its 0-62 time of 3.8 seconds and top speed of 155 miles per hour, though the 4.8 litre BMW V8 Hercules engine under the hood, producing 370 horsepower and almost equivalent torque, helps a bit with this as well. The speedster’s also fitted with modern amenities like Bluetooth/WiFi, a media center with digital radio, and contoured sports seats for long distance comfort.

Samsung Turbo Powerbot Robotic Vacuum

Dyson’s Eye360 is dropping imminently. Still, there’s another capable competitor that just popped up: Samsung’s Turbo Powerbot Robotic Vacuum. It’s first and foremost equipped with suction that eclipses other robot vacuums thanks to their CycloneForce system that’s also less prone to clogging, separating dust out to ensure the filter stays clean. A wide combo brush picks up particles and pet hair with less tangling to properly clean carpets and large wheels roll over obstacles. like carpet-hard floor interfaces and such. But best of all it’s WiFi connected and knows its environment thanks to Visionary Mapping Plus and a FullView Sensor so it knows to avoid walls and furniture and lets you tell it which of its mapped rooms to clean using just your smartphone. All we need now now is one that can tackle stairs.

ParaWallets Paracord Wallet

Fingers crossed it won’t ever come to this. But if necessary, a ParaWallets Paracord Wallet can come apart and retake the form of its building material, namely about 50 feet of rugged 550lb 7-strand parachute cord that can be used to fish, tie up a shelter, repair clothing, and more. When not deconstructed, though, the bifold has two slots for stacking cards and a large compartment for banknotes and the like. In its center it’s also fitted with a ferrocerium fire starter rod alongside tinder inside the tag and a steel emblem for striking and getting a fire going. Available in a wide range of color options from subtle to ridiculously bold.

Wolffepack Capture Camera Backpack

If nothing stands out to you about the Wolffepack Capture Camera Backpack in the above picture, take a closer look (hint: the rightmost guy right still has the shoulder straps on). Wolffepack’s patented expetoSYSTEM allows for lowering the bag quickly by simply unhooking a single release on the right shoulder strap, letting you then grab it and swing it around towards the front for full access without wasting time taking it off. If you need to really dig in there the bag’s hooks can latch onto the front of the shoulder straps so you can go at it with two hands. Other feature include thick padding, a microfibre-lined 15-inch laptop sleeve, a split level design that grants access to both the top and bottom contents of the bag separately, and an optional camera pod that properly shields your camera equipment from bumps and bruises.

Hands On: Arc’teryx Beta AR

Every time we got caught in the rain, we swore we’d buy a waterproof shell — which we eventually did, minus much diligent research. And wearing that cheap polyester shell zipped up made us feel like a turkey wrapped with tin foil in an oven. GORE-TEX, eVent, and other patented breathable technologies, they say, make for a far more comfortable jacket than what was essentially a plastic garbage bag with sleeves. We got our hands on the quintessential GORE-TEX jacket, Arc’teryx’ Beta AR, to review, and while we’re not mountaineers or storm chasers we’re still outside a fair bit all the same — probably like you — and need a sleek and reliable jacket to get us through bike commutes, rainy dog walks, windy hiking days, and snowy ski days. So read on to get our full take.
