Connected by a 13-foot passage, the Savion House keeps private and public areas completely separate. The front cube contains a communal living room, kitchen, dining room, and a second-story study, with wide plank and concrete floors running throughout. The space is lined with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors for added light and access to the patio and pool. The three-story rear cube holds another living room, three bedrooms, and the master with a white pine bridge that leads to a library housed in the front wing. When joined together, the two concrete and steel forms create an unmistakable L-shape.
With multiple lithium ion cells giving it a capacity of 434 watt-hours, the Anker PowerHouse is a smart alternative to portable generators. It has four USB ports for charging gadgets, a 12V socket for powering car accessories, and an AC outlet that can power anything from a laptop to a mini-fridge. Battery life obviously vaires depending on how you use it, but you can expect to get 40 phone recharges, 15 laptop charges, or over seven hours of mini-fridge operation before it's time to plug it back in.
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.
Handcrafted in Texas out of thick 10 gauge steel, the sleek design of the M1 Grill betrays its meat-cooking prowess. It has a crank on the outside for moving the fire up and down, letting you get a good sear on foods like steaks while keeping chickens and hams from burning. You can keep an eye on the temperature with the Tel-Tru stainless steel thermometer, which comes in especially handy when taking advantage of the bottom-mounted, double wall-insulated firebox that has its own dedicated door, a slide out basket, and a fully welded baffle for indirect smoking. The grates are made from 1/4" thick stainless steel, and give you 481 square inches of grilling surface, which can be expanded by 328 more with the use of the secondary smoke rack — enough room to smoke three full-sized briskets at once. The industrial thermal paint that is baked on for a lasting finish, and should anything ever break, it's covered by a lifetime warranty.
No state secrets were stolen in the making of this 1965 Mustang Espionage, but its true capabilities might be a secret — until you step on the gas. This vintage sleeper is powered by a 427 cubic inch LS7 V8 mated to a huge Whipple supercharger for a total output of 959 hp, routed to the rear custom forged wheels via a six-speed manual and custom driveshaft. It also has a Flowmaster exhaust, Baer brakes to bring things to a halt, and Recaro seats. But what's on the outside is nearly as interesting: a 100% carbon fiber body that's two inches wider on each side, clad in Spy Green paint to hide its telltale weave and far lighter than the normal body, making it even quicker than you'd expect.
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.
Located as far north as you can get via commercial flight, the Svalbard Global Seed Vault is designed as a failsafe should the rest of the world's crop collections disappear due to any number of potential catastrophes. It's ideal for a number of reasons, like the Permafrost and thick rock that keep the seeds frozen without the need for powered systems, a semi-remote location that's above sea level and unlikely to be the target of a direct military strike, and a stunning illuminated artwork that runs the length of the roof to above the entrance that will help make finding it — and the 4.5 million varieties of crops it holds — that much easier (assuming the power's still on.
Marrying a snowmobile-style track with a cafe racer-like posture, the Snoped is perhaps the sleekest snow speeder around. Its monolithic black aluminum body with exposed screws, puffy black seat, and vertical headlight and taillight looks like something straight out of the first order, while the lightweight chassis, 90cc motor, and Chrysler Sno-runner track ensures it's more than a mere prop. Sadly no word on whether designer Joey Ruiter or builder Jeff Long plan to make more.
Bluetooth speakers tend to find themselves in the midst of our lives — on dinner tables, kitchen counters, the edge of a bathtub. So it's important that they both sound and look good. The Pavilion Speaker hits both marks. It uses built-in aptX and AAC support to improve the sound of your music, then transfers it out into the room via a 20W Peerless speakers. The spiraled copper pipe isn't just for show, as it boosts bass frequencies via acoustic resonance, the oak top serves as a capacitive touch control, and the high-density concrete bottom helps eliminate rattles. Use it wirelessly by itself thanks to the rechargeable battery, or pair it with a second unit for true stereo sound. Available in white or black.
Dubbed the "Silver Arrow of the Seas", the Mercedes-Benz Granturismo Arrow Yacht translates the three-pointed star's car design language to the water. Measuring roughly 46 feet from stern to bow, the boat has classic automotive proportions and a hybrid design that combines the feeling of an open boat with the benefits of a hull cabin vessel. The interior, which can accommodate up to 10 people, is lined in eucalyptus wood, and has an upscale bathroom, separate dressing room, and a host of luxe standard features like a wine "cellar", ice-making machine, high-end audio system and air conditioning. Of course, it's no slouch performance-wise, either, with two diesel engines providing a total output of 960 hp, giving it a cruising speed of 30 knots and a top speed over 40, depending on the load. Just 10 boats will be made, with a limit of one per country.
Based on a K100 from 1985, the BMW K100 Impuls K101 Motorcycle takes a three-decade-old bike and brings it firmly into modern times. Impuls worked with artist Fabian Gatermann, who scanned the motorcycle in 3D, modified the structure, then created a series of polygons for the gas tank and seat which were then replicated in real life by hand. The result is a merging of digital and manual techniques that's fitting for a bike that has its roots in the past yet is perfectly suited for the future.
You want to take your music everywhere, but most bluetooth speakers either look like garbage or don't sound any better than streaming directly from your phone. Addressing both of those common problems is the Beoplay A1 Speaker from Bang & Olufsen. B&O always take design seriously, and the A1 is no exception. It's built to last with a beautiful rounded aluminum grill and double-molded polymer base. It also packs great sound dispersion wherever you take it and is small enough to sit in the palm of your hand. It has a battery life that lasts up to 24 hours, and even has a built-in microphone for making calls, giving you the freedom to pull off a conference call poolside.
Great photos can come and go in an instant when you're out adventuring, so you don't want your camera stuck in a bag. But leaving it exposed as you climb over boulders, logs, and other obstacles isn't wise, either. The Matador Camera Base Layer strikes a happy balance between the two. With a down-padded technical shell and integrated rain fly, it protects against bumps, bangs, scrapes, and weather. Yet it removes in under a second, making it ideal for spur-of-the-moment shots, and weighs only 68 grams, making it virtually unnoticeable compared to the heft of a quality DSLR and lens combo.
There's nothing more sacred than a perfectly cooked ribeye. The Otto O.F.B. Steak Griller is promising just that without leaving the house. Using radiant instead of convection heat, a pair of infrared gas units capable of 1,700º temps give your meat the steakhouse crust you long for while keeping the inside a juicy medium rare. A solid cast iron grid distributes the heat evenly and can hold the biggest Porthouse your butcher can dish out. And the grill isn't limited to just steaks — you can throw on burgers, chicken, fish, or whatever's hanging out in your meat tray.
Introduced in the UK at the end of 1967, the Ford Escort Mark 1 isn't what you expect when you think of the modern Escort series. This 1974 Ford Escort MK1 provides a glimpse into the past, when Mark 1 Escorts were one of the most successful rally cars around. It's undergone a complete restoration, adding a lightweight Group 4 body, fiberglass hood and trunk, and a 2 liter FIA racing engine capable of just over 200 horsepower. Since it's restoration, it's only seen two hours of usage, and is a fine piece to add to any rally car enthusiast's collection.
Protect your belongings while making your baggage claim experience a little easier with FPM Bank Aluminum Suitcases. They range in size from a small vanity case all the way up to a full-on trunk, and are made in Italy from 100% aluminum based on a Mark Sadler design. Premium features include leather handles and interior straps, maxi butteryfly clasps, integrated TSA locks, and silent, stable wheels, plus the added bonus of being able to pick out your bag amidst a sea of dark-colored cloth rectangles.
Developed specifically with fishermen and hunters in mind, the Suunto Traverse Alpha Watch will make a worthy companion on your next outing. The battery can run for up to 100 hours while using the integrated GPS with breadcrumbs, which, combined with the electronic compass and altimeter, make it easy to keep track of your whereabouts. There's a moon phase calendar to let you know when to put in your line, a barometric tracker to warn you of weather changes, and automatic shot detection to let you know where and when each one took place. Its red backlight won't bother your night vision gear, and it's built to military standards, so it can stand up to whatever you throw its way.
Meant for men only, the RZR Razor takes the modern razor and strips it down to its essentials. In place of a flexible body or ball-like joint, it relies on your brain and wrist to follow the contours of your face, with the premium-quality metal alloy blades placed on the opposite side of what you're used to for greater control and comfort. It has no moving parts and a titanium handle, and is thus meant to last a lifetime — and it has the warranty to prove it. For added personalization, engraving is available.

All three include a three year warranty and a micro pen perfect for filling out forms and marking maps.
