As our phones get larger, space in our pockets lessens. Thus was born the Wildcard Multitool, a way to keep yourself prepared with absolute minimal bulk. It uses a proprietary new pivot system that lets the entire tool stay under 2mm thick while providing you with a serrated blade that can be completely detached if necessary. The wallet-friendly tool also integrates a bottle opener into the wolf cutout, and packs a flathead screwdriver and pry tool, as well. Made in the USA from hardened stainless steel.
Automatic knives are dangerous, and might not even be legal where you live. But if you're looking for one, the Kershaw Launch 1 Knife is a great choice. It has a 3.4-inch blade made from corrosion- and wear-resistant CPM154 steel with a BlackWash finish, a contoured anodized aluminum handle, a reversible pocketclip to accommodate left- or right-hand usage, and a quick, powerful push-button opening system. Made in Oregon.
Most yacht are built for sailing the tropics. While the Seaxplorer Expedition Yacht can certainly do so, it's also equipped to take you to the most remote waters on earth. Its patented hull design with heavy ice reinforcement makes it possible to break through ice, while the passenger areas are meticulously faired and offer an uncompromisingly luxurious voyage. Fully autonomous, it can stay at sea for up to 40 days at a time, is available in 65, 90, and 100-meter models, and can be customized to any activity you're interested in, whether it be exploring a deserted island via kayak, or exploring the deep via submarine.
Most of us have been out on the open water. Few of us know what lies beneath the surface. These Below the Boat Wood Charts use bathymetric charts — the underwater equivalent of topographic maps — and laser-cut, hand-colored sheets of Baltic birch to create stunningly detailed recreations of the sea floor/lake bed in dozens of different locations, covering everywhere from the Alalakeiki Channel off the coast of Maui to the rivers surrounding Manhattan. Makes an ideal Father's Day gift for any sea-faring dad, especially since it's the only nautical-themed decoration that's acceptable two miles or more inland.

Make your trip to and from the stream as easy as possible with a Tenkara Pocket Fly Fishing Rod. These collapsable rods are made from carbon fiber, and shrink down to just 10 inches when collapsed. They come in two models — the Sawtooth and Teton — which extend out to 9 and 12 feet while weighing just 1.1 and 1.9 ounces, respectively. Each one comes packed in a protective sock and tube, includes line, line clips, flies, and a tippet, and will fit in nearly any bag so you can always be prepared.
Unabashedly urban-minded, the Gi FlyBike is an ideal cruiser for city streets. It weighs only 37 lbs thanks to an aluminum alloy frame, and has a unique design that folds up and back out in one smooth motion, so it takes up as little space as possible in your apartment/office. It integrates with your phone, uses it for navigation, charges it while you ride, and relies on it for an auto-locking feature that also lets you share the bike with friends via the app. The solid tires provide a smooth ride, and the 250 watt brushless motor gives you up to 40 miles of assistance on a single charge — meaning you get to where you're going faster, and with less effort/sweat.

Sure, there are smaller multi-tools, but few pack as much punch into as small a space as the Swiss Advance Pocket Multi-Tool. Weighing just over an ounce and measuring just 0.2 inches thick, it still manages to offer four different hex wrenches, a fork, a square, an awl, a bradawl and sewing, a fish scaler, a bottle opener, a wire stripper, a nail puller, a screwdriver, and a traditional knife blade in a single package. Made in Switzerland from stainless steel, it comes complete with a protective nylon pouch.
You don't need to be big to do a good job. The Pygmy Titanium Multi-Tool proves it by packing four different functions into a tool that's no bigger than a coin. Machined from your choice of aerospace-grade stainless steel or titanium, each one carries a flathead screwdriver, a Phillips screwdriver, a scraper, and a quarter-inch hex wrench and bit driver, and lets you lets you apply far more torque than you can with your bare fingers despite its diminutive size. Quarter not included.
Sometimes it's not enough to travel with just your clothes. Sometimes you need to bring some refreshments along too. The Globe-Trotter x Chivas Steamer Trunk lets you do both in grand style. The interior of the trunk has dedicated compartments for watches and shoes, leather-covered suit hangers, and a mirror-backed mini bar that folds out of the side. The custom lining honors the legacy of both brands, while the American white oak drawer linings and hand-engraved copper plaque reclaimed from a Scotch whisky still make the link to Chivas readily apparent to anyone who cares to look.

Can-Am's side-by-side offroaders are great if you're just looking to have some fun on the trails. The 2016 Can-Am Defender takes this expertise and applies it to actually getting stuff done.

The 4-mode traction system lets you handle pretty much any terrain, and the four different models — the standard Defender, the DPS with dynamic power steering, the upgraded XT, and the all-weather XT Cab — ensure there's one to suit your needs.
