Often "bespoke" is just shorthand for "fancy and expensive." In the case of Franco Snowshapes Snowboards, its real meaning applies. As part of their Ride + Shape Experience, you'll spend a couple of days riding with company founder Mikey Franco, who will observe and learn your style. You'll then spend the next few days with him as he selects the wood mix, flex, and shape for your board, all culminating in two days of enjoying your new ride on the pristine powder of Jackson Hole.
Doing the job of five different tools in one convenient package, the Spare Me Auto Rescue Tool is a sturdy tool that you'll want to keep in your vehicle at all times. It serves as a scraper for snow and ice with a five-inch blade and an 18.5-inch overall length. That same shape also lets it work as a shovel, as well as a tire lift when you're trying to install a spare. In the same scenario, it works as a cheater bar to give you added leverage on the lug nuts, and for times when you find yourself stuck, just set it in front of your tire for added traction. It's easy to handle at under a pound and is made in the USA.

Available in black or the durable 900D eco-dyed gray colorway.

Nearly two decades after founding Billykirk to counteract the trend of fast fashion and fly-by-night manufacturing, New York-based brothers Chris and Kirk Bray are still turning out some of the best American-made goods around. That's why we could think of no one better to partner with on a comprehensive set of bags that can stand up to a lifetime of use while remaining timeless in design. The three bags in the set were deliberately chosen to be the ideal set needed for a long weekend away when combined, while remaining as standalone bags for the day-to-day once you return home. Each is trimmed in our own American Bison hide and is lined in a durable Ranger Tan nylon that makes things on the inside easy to spot, both of which are exclusive to the Billykirk x Uncrate collaboration. Each bag is cut, sewn, and trimmed by hand in the Billykirk studio in New York by a set of master craftsmen and the Bray brothers themselves. Jump over to Uncrate Supply to see the Billykirk x Uncrate dopp kit, commuter tote, and carryall.
