It's finally time to comfortably drink beer outside again. And with this change comes a shift in preference for many. Deschutes Hope Slice IPA not only pairs well with the outdoors, but brings a light, sessionable vibe to the table as well. Brewed with Meyer Lemons, it's a crisp, light IPA with a subtle citrus flavor that only weighs in at 4.5% ABV — ensuring your next outdoor drinking session lasts long enough to soak up the sunny afternoon.

Whether it's an emergency/survival situation or you just forgot to pack enough water into the forest, the Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter will ensure you have fresh, clean drinking water. Its PointOne filter uses hollow fiber membranes comprised of U-shaped microtubes to block anything larger than 0.1 microns, letting water through while removing greater than 99.9999% of all bacteria and greater than 99.999% of all protozoa. Despite all this, it weighs on three ounces, rolls up into the collapsible pouch, has a push-pull cap for drinking straight from the filter, and can attach to most threaded water bottles.
With an eye on keeping the original Morris Lapidus design largely intact, the newly reborn Nautilus Hotel blends European and mid-century elements to create an ideal beach getaway. Each of its 250 rooms has creature comforts like Nespresso machines and standalone showers, and offers views of South Beach and/or the Atlantic. The property extends from Collins all the way to the beach, creating plenty of room for the saltwater pool and adjacent bar, the signature Driftwood Room restaurant, lobby bar, and relaxing backyard.
A classic rain jacket should be a staple of any springtime wardrobe. The Taylor Stitch Beach Jacket fits the role nicely. It's crafted from 6 oz. dry-finish waxed canvas sourced from British Millerain , the world's top waxed cotton manufacturer. Its cut is comfortable without being baggy, protective yet still lightweight, and is enhanced by details like antique brass YKK zippers, top and side entry pockets, adjustable cuffs, and a drawstring hood. Available in navy or olive and handmade in California.
Like it or not, we still receive traditional mail from time to time. Make the experience of dealing with it as enjoyable as possible with this Burnt Letter Opener. Made using traditional Japanese wood charring techniques, the exterior of the opener takes on a dark finish, with the grain more visible, and the wood becoming stronger in the process. The blade side is then sanded down to reveal the wood's natural color and provide contrast with the black body. Sealed with ecological oil for protection and a clean finish and made in Montreal.
With swooping lines and a punchy 1.6 L flat-four engine, the 1961 Porsche 356 B 1600 S Roadster by D'Ieteren is an enjoyable vintage warm weather drive. This particular example was built in May 1961, and saw plenty of use from its original San Franciscan owner before being shipped up the coast to Portland. It's since undergone a five-year restoration to bring it to the excellent state it's in today, complete with the original matching-numbers engine and color combo of slate grey with red leather interior. It'll be auctioned off in its homeland of Germany next month.
Bulleit Barrel Strength Bourbon is exactly what it sounds like — Bulleit Bourbon bottled straight from the barrel. The same high-rye mash bill you've come to love in standard Bulleit is intact, but the uncut and unfiltered version clocks in between 118-125 proof. Available in 375 and 750 mL bottles, it's your first chance to taste the truest form of Bulleit Bourbon that's ever been bottled.
Set in between two city parks near the intersection of two waterfalls, Fallsview House takes full advantage of its unique location. The front of the house uses huge floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the views and let light roll through from both sides, while the rear looks out onto the adjacent forest for added privacy. A clean design featuring concrete floors, tastefully subdued wood finishes, and playful light fixtures allows the owners' impressive art collection to take center stage alongside the natural vistas.
Based largely on the V8 Vantage GTE race car, the Aston Martin Vantage GT8 is a track-ready, street-legal rocket. It's powered by a modified version of the company's 4.7L V8, channeling its 440 hp through your choice of a six-speed manual or seven-speed Sportshift transmission. Of course, power is only half the equation, with the weight kept down by plentiful carbon fiber in the front splitter, front and rear bumpers, fenders, side sills, rear diffuser, sports seats, and, optionally, both the roof and the rear wing. It still has air conditioning and a modern infotainment system, but even those can't stop it from being the lightest, most powerful V8 Vantage ever.
Mixing classic design with street wear, Stampd x Futura Surfboards are functional works of art that look as good on display as they do in the waves. Each of the four boards features freestyle airbrushing by street artist Futura, and the same minimal monotone look of the company's past boards. Available with a swallowtail fish, diamond-tail, or round-square body, each board has a black underbelly and is being sold at Stampd's La Brea outpost.
Equal parts cabin and Cosmopolitan, Chalet Zermatt Peak is one of the area's finest accommodations. Available by the week, this stunning five-level abode offers all the privacy you'd expect with a level of service normally reserved for resorts. The living and dining areas occupy one whole floor, as huge windows afford outstanding views of the town below and the Matterhorn in the distance. Five bedrooms are spread throughout, each with an en suite, and the bonus of a private jacuzzi in the master and a glass roof on the top floor. There's also a hot tub, walk-in wine cellar, outdoor dining area, fitness room, and ski room, and the on-site housekeeping service, personal chef, and masseuse will ensure your stay is as opulent as the home you're staying in.
Tattoos are a profound form of personal expression. They're also very permanent. Ink Hunter is a new app that lets you try out different pieces without the need for imagination or multiple removal procedures. It has a large gallery of premade sketches to try out (you can also load your own artwork in) and uses a square smile drawn on your skin to place the tattoo, so you know exactly how it's going on your body before you head to your local shop to get inked for real.
Combining iconic Chuck Taylor All Stars with indigo has been done before, but probably not as well as these Converse x Tunue De Nimes Indigo Chuck Taylor All Stars. Amsterdam denim makers Tenue de Nîmes took 100 pairs of low-top Chucks and submerged them one-by-one into indigo dye. Each shoe was then pulled from the dye once they had a certain look. Made to celebrate Amsterdam Denim Days, no two pairs look alike and were dyed using only natural ingredients.
Photos can be a good motivator when working to improve your fitness — but you still need to check with a scale every so often. The Naked 3D Fitness Tracker combines these two in a powerful way, using Intel RealSense 3D Depth Sensors and a turntable scale to create a custom 3D model of your body while it also measures your body fat percentage and weight. As you progress, the companion app will show you a heat map with areas of significant change highlighted in a different color so you can see where you're adding muscle or losing fat. Whether you're a weekend warrior or a serious bodybuilder, it's a powerful tool.
Designed around a couple's love for automobiles, the Garage Terrace House is a car enthusiasts dream. A wall of floor to ceiling windows keep the owner's pride and joy on display from the adjacent kitchen and living area, while the continuation of concrete flooring makes the garage feel one with the interior. Raised timber ceilings and the use of natural light expand the modest 1800-square-foot space. When extra room is needed, your ride could be, dare we say it, parked outside and the garage can be converted into a covered terrace.
By now, you should know that a jacket that fits you is a much better look than something that you grabbed off a rack. This Seamless Jacket from Ministry of Supply fits your frame thanks to 3D modeling. That means it's constructed around a model in computer-animated design, resulting in an exact replica of the human shape. Every detail is taken into account, from the ventilation patterns to how and where the lapel folds. The knit enables maximum stretch in all directions while providing seamless ventilation at the underarms. It fits like no jacket you've had before, while maintaining your need for comfort and everyday movement.
We've had globes of the Earth for ages. It's time our only natural satellite got its due. The Moon Lunar Globe is a truly accurate 1/20 million replica of the Moon featuring every detail — craters, hills, and ridges — in full 3D, created using topographic data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. All that detail does no good if you can't see it, so it has a ring of LED lights that spin around it, illuminating the correct side of the moon, recreating the lunar phases as seen from Earth, and putting every impressive detail into sharp relief. Also available without the lights, and as a larger, 1/11.5 million scale globe.
Babolat's Play connected tennis rackets have been on the market for a while now, but that means little if you're hitting a different brand of racket. The Babolat Pop lets you keep track of your game simply by swapping it with the wristband you're already wearing. Its tiny, lightweight sensor keeps tabs on your shot types, swing speed, spin and style, all of which get combined into something the company calls a PIQ score, as well as your court time and number of shots. As you'd expect, it syncs with a companion app so you can compare scores against friends and friendly foes across the world, and is compatible with any brand of racket.
Although it may look like something straight out of Egypt, the Pyramid House is anything but ancient. Architect Juan Carlos Ramos used the clean lines and sharp angles of the classic geometric shape to his advantage to create a unconventional yet modern concept. Dispersed throughout multiple levels, a library, kitchen, two bedrooms, and a garage asend inside the peak to keep the interior open. A triangular window covers one entire side of the home, creating the dramatic component you'd expect from a pyramid-shaped house.
No, Facebook isn't suddenly getting into the electronics business. It's just giving it a boost. The Facebook Surround 360 Camera is an "open" 360-degree, 3D-capable video production system that uses specialized stitching technology to weave the output of its 17 cameras together into one VR-ready stream, letting producers focus on the thing that's most important — the content. Expect to see it on Github later this summer, where anyone can take the plans, build their own, or offer up improvements.
As temperatures slowly rise, the pull towards the great outdoors gets stronger and stronger. But this year, instead of dragging that old, beat up lawn chair to every get-together, consider the ultra-light and comfortable Kaisr Inflatable Air Lounge. It's easy to setup and makes any surface comfortable, from the beach to the park to the pool, the Kaisr Air Lounge is your ticket to rest and relaxation. It's also equipped with pockets for your e-reader, smartphone, bottles or cans, and even a bottle opener. It deflates within seconds and is stored in a small pouch that's easy to take with you wherever your adventures take you.
Drawing on the term for bob-tailing a motorcycle, the Savage Bobber Airplane brings a high amount of customization to the air. Much like a one-off bike, each plane is customized to fit its owner, with a huge number of options available, including the color of the engine and open fuselage, type of luggage holder, style of seat, propeller, engine add-ons, types of instrument panels, and more. It's based on the Savage Classic, so you know it's reliable, and no matter which options you choose, it'll be powered by a Rotax engine, and include 10 hours of ground school plus five flight hours with the company's factory trained CFIs.
Inspired by the celestial objects found by French astronomer Charles Messier, Nova Ties let you add a touch of sci-fi to an otherwise formal look. It was the clusters M4, M17, and M108, specifically, that artist Kev Nemelka looked to as models, using different mixtures of paint and chemicals to recreate these far-off formations. Limited to just 39 ties, each one is unique, and measures 2.4" at its widest point.
When it first launched, the Kindle was a luxury item. Over time, they've become more and more affordable. The Amazon Kindle Oasis brings things full circle. This flagship e-Reader has a tapered design that places most of the bulk — if you want to call it that; it's 20% lighter and 30% thinner than any other Kindle — near the palm of your hand, much like a folded-over paperback. The design also makes room for the dedicated page turn buttons, the 300 ppi screen with 10 LED backlights, and the connector for the included charging cover that boosts its battery life from mere weeks to months.
The Tesla Model S was already a great vehicle, so there was little reason to give it a full overhaul. That said, the 2017 Tesla Model S does offer several notable improvements over prior models. Most obvious is the switch from the more traditional front end to one seemingly borrowed from the Model X, with no grille and a sliver of black in the center. Also on board is the Bioweapon Defense Mode HEPA air filtration system from the X, full LED adaptive headlights, updated seats, an upgraded charger, and two new wood decor options. And unlike most refreshes, the new models are available starting today.
