You know when you were a kid and your dad would pull out that sweet pair of binoculars a couple times a year? No matter how desperately you wanted to use them, they were off limits. Yeah, well, you've got a credit card now. Suck it, old man. Our top pick for optics are the Brunton Epoch Full Size Binoculars ($1,276). These rugged and waterproof binoculars feature a magnesium alloy frame, every protective coating imaginable, and Brunton's Variable Speed Focus System, which makes them the fastest focusing binoculars we've tried.
Little did you know, there actually is a sleeping bag that you can wear. The Lippi Selk Sleeping Bag ($175) is a sleeping bag/suit that is designed to keep you warm while allowing you the mobility that in the worst of conditions can keep you alive. Because crossing cold rivers or climbing up the side of a mountain can be rough. We tried to climb up the side of Space Mountain, and we didn't even make it half way before we had to defend ourselves with laser guns. True story. Those damn Disney security guards have stuff you haven't even heard of.
Based in Hamburg, Germany, Sternglas creates functional, no-nonsense timepieces inspired by the Bauhaus design movement. The Topograph is one of their latest releases, centered around a black brushed stainless steel case and black dial with thin white markings. Among the highly legible indices is a Rehaut with each second inscribed that conveys the appearance of a technical measuring device. The minimalist watch is powered by rock-solid Miyota 821A automatic movement that's visible through the crystal case back and protected by slightly domed sapphire glass. Short, curved lugs make for a comfortable fit along with a leather strap that is handmade in Germany that can be swapped out in seconds for another thanks to the built-in quick release spring bars.
Case Diameter: 42mm / Case Thickness: 10mm / Lug Width: 20mm / Depth rating: 5 bar / Movement: Miyota 821A Automatic Movement / Power Reserve: 42 hours / Jewels: 21
