Rapha Reversible – For those who live an active lifestyle, the concept of versatility goes a long way. Apparel that can handle the stress of the outdoors while complimenting a pair of dark denim is hard to find, but Rapha seems to have an answer. This high-end cycling apparel company has created a reversible jacket that has the technical features that can handle a long ride on one side, and with a reverse that is sharp enough for a night out.
Misfit Flash – Fitbit and the FuelBand has a little competition coming from the Misfit Flash. This little fitness tracker is powered by a coin cell battery that lasts up to six months. The sleek design still manages to pack in a 3-axis accelerometer that can monitor your movements, sleep, calories burned, and distance walked. All of the data is transferred to your phone through Bluetooth and all of this is available at half of the price of competitors, $50.
BAIT x Saucony – After two successful collaborations for the Cruel World series BAIT and Saucony get together for the third – Global Warming. The classic Shadow Origianl running shoes will arrive with a premium upper made from suede, leather, and features a knitted panel on the quarter panel and heel. Reflective 3M is used throughout the sneaker to give it a little pop, and a portion of the proceeds from the sale will go toward the Natural Resources Defense Council. These retro runners are set to drop in stores and online this Saturday, September 20.
Carhartt WIP NYC Exclusive – Carhartt has set up shop in New York for a minute now and plans on honoring the city with an exclusive project. The small collection will feature the Carhartt logo integrated into “NYC” with “Work in Progress” printed right below. This is one of those lazy projects that lacks effort and commitment. The graphic T-shirt and the matching beanie will be exclusive to the Carhartt WIP on Crosby in Manhattan, but with all likelihood it will eventually find its way to your local thrift store at a tenth of the price.
Filson Soft-Sided Cooler – Filson has made coolers before, but that rinky-dink plastic can’t hold a candle to this new lifestyle product. This new cooler from Filson doesn’t just re-brand some plastic case, instead it uses the classic heavy duty Tin Cloth canvas. The cooler has that rugged look for your road-trip or campsite and is made with water repellent Tin Cloth. It also comes with a structured base to keep things upright. The interior of the bag uses a insulated lining, and a rust-resistant brass zipper ensures to seal in the cold.
