Beginning with the time tested Jeep Wrangler Unlimited platform and drivetrain, the makers of this USSV Rhino XT SUV have managed to take an already tough vehicle to the next level. The latest reinvention from US Specialty Vehicles features flared fenders, hardened tow hooks, a hard-top removable roof, and a performance roll cage built to withstand the toughest tumble. It's also loaded up with 35-inch off-road tires sitting on 20-inch aluminum rims, and a turbocharged 3.6L V6 engine. The interior is customized as well, with leather seats, and an Alpine navigation system.
A collaboration two years in the making, the Ducati Scrambler Italia Independent takes the Italian bike manufacturer's '70s-inspired bike and adds a touch of fashion-focused cafe racer flair. Unique features include a black engine with brushed head fins, a black exhaust with a Termignoni silencer, lower handlebars with variable sections and aluminum rear mirrors sprouting from the ends, and a matte black paint job applied using a brushing process similar to that of the unique copper color that defines the front mudguard, nose fairing, frame, and wheels. Limited to only 1,077 individually-numbered units.
Who said all drones have to be quadcopters? The Parrot Disco Drone has a propeller, but looks far more like a traditional airplane than a futuristic camera-wielding robot. The lightweight design houses a Full HD camera in the front nose, as well as ground sensors, Wi-Fi, GPS, and three-axis stabilization for incredibly easy control. It can fly for up to 45 minutes, automatically fly a predetermined route and return home, and is also compatible with VR headsets for a first-person view of every flight. And it doesn't take much knowledge to get it off the ground, either — if you can throw a paper airplane, you can get it in the air.
Showering is a vital part of your daily ritual, and yet most of us do it underneath something that isn't much different than a garden hose. Nebia will completely change the way you think about showering, and might even make it the highlight of your day. Developed with the same software used to study jet engines, Nebia delivers millions of droplets with 10 times more surface area than a regular shower — giving you a level of comfort and pleasure like you've never experienced. And that same process makes Nebia incredibly efficient as well, saving up to 70% of the water that you waste in the shower currently, while you're just as immersed, and are left feeling invigorated and clean. It also looks great and is easy to install, mounting on your bathroom wall via a height-adjustable bracket with an anodized aluminum finish, a head that rotates up to 45 degrees, and a handheld wand for full-body coverage.

Some jackets are made for cool weather, some for rain, and others for the chill of winter. But this All-Season 3-in-1 Jacket from L.L. Bean is made with all of that in mind, and much more. It features a lightweight, waterproof shell that is specially treated to chase away moisture, a liner that is packed with low-bulk PrimaLoft insulation, adjustable cuffs, a removable hood, and zip-closure handwarmer and inside pockets to keep your belongings secure and dry. Instead of reaching for multiple jackets as fall turns into winter, just zip the shell and liner together to give your slick light jacket an additional layer of protection from the icy bite of winter.
You've got different wardrobes for the summer and the winter. Shouldn't your bed, too?

Enjoy all the benefits of cannabis with none of the smoke with the Highlighter Cannabis Vapor Pen. This self-contained, portable system uses a USB-rechargeable battery-powered heating element to warm all-natural, 45-50% THC cannabis oil, releasing smooth hits of vapor that's far more healthy (and more potent) than just puffing on a blunt. Available in sativa, indica, and hybrid varieties, it arrives in well-designed, 100% recyclable packaging.
Finally, a chance to sleep in church without getting in trouble. Set in the rolling hills of Northern England close to Middleton-in-Teesdale, The Chapel is a 19th century house of worship that's been converted into a modern four bedroom cottage. Two of the four bedrooms offer en suites while the other two share a family bath, and the structure also houses a roomy, fully-equipped kitchen that's open to the cozy living area with wood-burning fireplace. In an ideal location for walking, cycling, or just relaxing, with several shops, restaurants, and pubs just a short drive away.
Located in an older cul-de-sac, the River House is rather unassuming from the street — just a concrete wall, a gate, and a garage, with only the roofline to hint at the modern abode on the other side. Concrete also serves as the basis for the rest of the home, defining the guest wing, open living spaces, and outdoor areas, including a cantilevered deck. Large windows provide views of the Northern Rock Mountains and river below, while the views from the river back up to the house frame the mountain behind it perfectly.

Joel Anderson, his son Nathan, and the rest of his team of designers set out to create a poster for each of the National Parks in honor of their 100th anniversary. The project ended up being a bit more involved than they expected. 59 Illustrated National Parks is the result, a 160-page look at all of the parks, complete with facts, travel tips, histories, and, of course, the aforementioned posters. At 9" x 12", it's sized to let you fully enjoy each piece of design, as well as the 12 oil paintings, historic photos, and maps that accompany them.
Sharp enough for a prix fixe dinner, yet warm enough to stand up to the elements, the Timberland Mt. Hayes Travel Jacket begs to be your go-to cold weather coat. It's made from a poly/wool blend that provides outstanding warmth yet manages to feel light, and gives the jacket a casual barn coat appeal that works as well with a flannel as it does as a blazer. The cotton twill lining with nylon in the sleeves allows for ease of motion, while three front pockets and one more on the inside provide plenty of storage. Available in charcoal heather or navy, and cut to complement well-fitted attire.

Minimalistic for a reason, the Nova Fountain Pen removes all potential distractions to become an ideal EDC writing tool. It's more notable for what it lacks — a clip, branding, and any type of noise-making clicker — than for what it offers, which is a pure, focused writing experience. Available with a #6 steel or flexible titanium nib from German craftsman Peter Bock, and with a black or silver aluminum body, in polished titanium, or as a set of three.
While he may only be known as someone who created art on a canvas, Jackson Pollock may have been just as creative in the kitchen. Dinner With Jackson Pollock: Recipes, Art & Nature is a new book detailing recipes taken from hand written notes from his mother, wife, artist Lee Krasner, and Pollock himself. From leftover creations to the apple pie that won Pollock first place in a local competition, it shows the world renowned painter in a conservative, domestic light. You'll also find great photos of the recipes themselves along with pics of his home and some of his classic pieces of art as well.
Inspired by the payaaqek, a simple native Alaskan boot, the Nikelab Payaa pays tribute with a minimal, monotone design. The one-piece mesh and foam upper provides excellent breathability and a snug fit, the outsole has been cored out to reduce weight while enhancing flexibility, and the shoes are easy to slide on and off thanks to a lacing system that uses a simple lock in place of a traditional knot. Available in red, white, blue, and black.

It's rare when an AV receiver looks as good as it sounds. As such, the ColorWare Yamaha Aventage Pearl Receiver is rarity in more ways than one. On the specs side, it boasts built-in Wi-Fi, support for Dolby Atmos, 9 channels of 150W sound, 4K video up conversion with HDMI 2.0 support, AirPlay, advanced switching, and more. But the exterior is equally stunning, with a Diamond Pearl metallic paint finish and 24K gold accents on the visible buttons and dials. Limited to 10 individually-numbered units.

It's great if you live by the rules of Inbox Zero, but for most of us, our email client is more like Inbox Hell — a jumble of personal messages, important info, and marketing emails on which we should have long ago clicked "Unsubscribe". Gmail Inbox is a new, official Google app that aims to help clean up this mess by ditching traditional email client conventions. The app bundles similar emails together, shows the most important details from messages without the need to open them, lets you set reminders for or snooze emails, and even allows you to do things like check-in for flights and respond to calendar invitations, all from a clean, concise single-page view.
