Outdoor Fellow Campfire Scented Candle

Using a natural blend of coconut and apricot wax, this 8oz candle from Outdoor Fellow will have you reminiscing about memories by the campfire and longing to go out to the wilderness again. The cotton-based wicks are made from renewable fibers and the glass jar is meant to be reused as an old fashioned cocktail glass after the candle’s burned all the way through.

Casio G-Shock 5600

Long before smartwatches ever came along, Casio’s G-SHOCK was the digital watch to beat. Debuting in 1987, the 5600 model still looks great on your wrist and is an optimal choice for those with an active lifestyle, featuring an auto-calendar, 3 years of battery life, and 200m of water resistance. Not to mention, back in 2017, the watch was immortalized in the Guinness Book of World Records as the first-ever timepiece to survive being run over by a 25-ton truck.

GREATS The Foster Slipper

The global pandemic made slippers great again. And few brands know how to craft the perfect pair like GREATS, a Brooklyn-based footwear brand that launched back in 2014 and has made a name for itself for its thoughtful construction and responsibly-sourced materials. The super-comfortable Foster Slipper features a stitched puffer-style nylon upper made from recycled fishing nets and carpet, while its rubber outsole uses 100% natural materials and will provide enough durability for you to take this outside or around town.

ESPRO P7 French Press

Simply put, ESPRO dominates the French press space for a reason. Its units are easy to clean and the brand’s proprietary mesh filter basket creates a cleaner cup of coffee than the competition while still preserving the essence of French press. ESPRO has a range of models from the P1 travel brewer all the way up to the top-shelf P7, a 32oz stainless steel brewer with super-durable, double-walled construction for longer heat retention.

Oakley Sutro Prizm Sunglasses

Oakley’s ever-popular Sutro sunglasses are a favorite in the world of cycling but have found ubiquity as a popular crossover performance model for good reason. Large and in charge, the overall cylindrical aesthetic is both retro and futuristic, and decidedly contemporary. On the tech side, the O-Matter frames make these specs extra durable, while this particular model comes equipped with the brand’s proprietary Prizm lenses for better color and contrast.

The Beatles Revolver Vinyl Box Set

It’s argued by some that Revolver represents the peak of the Beatles’ output. For a band that, simply stated, dominated the ‘60s, the 1966 album displayed a group of artists moving on from its dreamy-eyed pop and into an era of experimentation and innovation (although, deceptively, the band had already been quite ahead of its time before then). This fantastic vinyl box set from Capitol is no joke, featuring four LPs that contain a remaster of the album as well as session takes and the original mono transfer, and a fifth 7” disc featuring the non-album singles “Paperback Writer” and “Rain.” The set also comes with a plethora of other bonuses, including collectible ephemera and a 100-page booklet with a foreword by Paul McCartney.

Fellow Stagg EKG Pro

Fellow’s ever-popular temperature-controlled gooseneck kettle, Stagg EKG, got an upgrade recently with the new Pro line. Making water boiling even more fun, the new unit now allows you to schedule a time for your hot water to reach a certain temperature, after which it will let you know when it’s ready with a chime. The accompanying Fellow app also gives you the ability to schedule multiple heating times throughout the day.

Fluance RT81 Elite Turntable

Housed in beautiful low-vibration wood, this flagship RT81 Elite record player from Fluance doesn’t just look great on your credenza but utilizes an Audio Technica cartridge with a diamond elliptical-tipped stylus for super high-accuracy playback. Likewise, the Texas Instruments preamp gives you optimal sound quality and the aluminum S-type tonearm provides minimal tracking error, especially on older LPs that have seen a lot of use in their lifetime.

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX Wireless Earbuds

If you want to go all out on a pair of premium earbuds, look no further than Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay EX, wireless in-ear monitors with adaptive noise cancelation and a series of six beam-forming microphones for super-clear phone conversations. As for sound quality, the 9.2mm drivers in each ear bring unmatched warmth and precision to your music for up to 20 hours of listening on a single battery charge.

Arc’teryx Sawyer Coat

Arc’teryx makes incredible outdoor clothing whether you’re experiencing life in the mountains or life in the city — and sometimes tackles both destinations with a single piece. That’s the case with the Sawyer Coat, a full-length nylon parka that will supply the urban dweller with adventure-ready construction. Waterproof and breathable thanks to triple-layered GORE-TEX, this hooded jacket takes it one step further with a WaterTight front zipper for added insurance.
