The company famous for its use of vulcanized fiberboard is giving a new material a chance in the Globe-Trotter Carbon Trolley Case. The world's first colored carbon fiber material, Hypetex, replaces the fiberboard as the main component of the 20-inch case. Done in a cool silver, it's accented by the company's signature leather straps, with corners done in burgundy or black. The case is part of a series of collaborations done in celebration of the brand's 120th anniversary and is limited to just 120 examples.
The range of electric skateboards continues to evolve, and with the release of these two boards from Kuickwheel, it's taking a big step forward. The Serpent-C is the smallest electric skateboard on the market, with a 300-watt in-wheel motor that can go up to 11 mph for up to 6 miles. It's controlled using a force-sensitive remote control, and at only 18 inches long, you can toss it into your pack with ease. The Serpent-W, on the other hand, is a 40-inch longboard that can go up to 25 mph with a range of nearly 10 miles and even includes safety lighting for peace of mind during a nighttime trip. Both boards give riders the option of eco or sports mode based on their experience and use high-quality materials that are built to last.
The Grayl Ultralight operates similarly to a French press, letting you fill it with water, plunge the filter down, and drink without worrying about 99.99% of bacteria, viruses, and debris. Based on a simple award-winning design, this water bottle saves you the trouble of packing lots of drinking water during a thru-hike or short excursion by letting you purify river or lake water as you go, and its replaceable filter is rated for 300 uses. It also doesn't need batteries, UV lights, or a complex filter or straw system, making it an ideal choice for anyone who needs to pack light and be certain their gear will do its job.
When we think of "flying DeLorean," somehow this isn't quite what we've had in mind. Developed by Paul DeLorean, nephew of DMC founder John, the DeLorean DR-7 Aircraft is a two-seat, self-flying vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) vehicle. It looks less like a car than a plane, with two sets of wings, winglets underneath, and two large ducted fans that sit horizontally for takeoff before rotating to vertical for forward flight. Still in the R&D phase, it will measure 20 feet long and 18.5 feet wide, with the ability to tuck its wings to the sides to fit in large garages. The hope is to have a full-scale prototype in the air by next year, with the ultimate goal of squeezing 120 miles of range out of its all-electric propulsion system.

A majority of the most popular French presses are made from glass. Unfortunately, glass doesn't hold up so well in the wilderness. This Stanley Classic Vacuum French Press does. Crafted from 18/8 stainless steel, it's naturally BPA-free, won't rust, and is ideal for camping. Its vacuum insulation keeps coffee hot for up to four hours, cold for up to 9, and iced for up to 24. Available in timeless hammertone green with a 48 oz. capacity.

With a sleek design and impressive performance, the Wally Tango Sailing Yacht is a worthy addition to the Wallycento fleet of racing cruisers. Measuring 100 feet in length, the Tango's form was developed in collaboration with Italian shipbuilders Persico Marine and Ireland-based naval architect Mark Mills, using a carbon fiber and Nomex sandwich material for the hull to keep weight down and improve its speed. In addition to its light 47.5-ton weight, the Tango also saw its engine room and service areas moved to the middle of the ship to optimize the center of gravity and improve the sailing experience. The exterior isn't the only area in which it's different, however, as the spacious cabin sports a futuristic design courtesy of Pininfarina. The vessel will make its debut at the Monaco Yacht Show before competing in its first race, an event in Saint-Tropez where it will face off against the other three Wallycentos.

This entire kit of tools and utensils can be disassembled to stow neatly in a rugged canvas carrying bag, making sure everything stays organized and ready for your next barbecue adventure.
Taking its name from the continuously variable transmission hub, the Continuum Bicycle from Priority is back and available for the first time in Onyx. The next generation edition allows riders to enjoy a quiet, smooth ride without the need to shift under load or skip gears thanks to the seamlessly shifting NuVinci rear hub.

With a simple modern design that gives it great flexibility in placement, the Tole K60 Outdoor Fireplace can add the warm glow of an open flame to anywhere from the patio to the woods. Its rectangular form stands a hair over six feet tall and a slender two feet wide and is built from corten steel with a stainless hood and grate.

Inspired by Prohibition-era airplanes and boats, the Fitzke Bootlegger Paddleboard exudes retro charm. The exterior is made from high-quality marine-grade mahogany plywood, with a touring-style design that tracks straight and fast. Its hand-painted graphics are protected under a finely-buffed varnish for protection, and since less than 10% of the vessel is solid wood, you don't need to worry about weather-related expansion. The 12.5-foot board's signature feature, however, is the water-resistant storage compartment hidden in the front of the board that's ideal for your shoes, wallet, keys, or, as the name suggests, a small tipple of your favorite spirit. Each board is made-to-order by hand, making each unique to its owner.

Vague Watch Co.'s Grey Fade Submariner gets its name from the dark grey bezel insert, meant to mimic the sought-after "ghost bezel" effect found on the faded black bezels of well-worn vintage sport watches. Adding to the vintage look are intentional but subtle distressing marks of the case sides. It's built with an automatic movement, meaning you'll never have to change a battery, as the watch is powered by the movement of your arm during wear. With a stainless steel case, a screw-down back, and a 100-meter depth rating, the watch is also rugged enough to handle some serious time in the water. On top of that, it ships with a sharp military-inspired case, watch tool, and a classic nylon NATO strap to switch out with the stainless oyster band.
Since 1915, the Moscot family has been selling eyeglasses in New York. And over 100 years later, there are still generations of Moscots waiting for you at Orchard Street when you need some new spectacles or shades. For our lastest collaboration, we dialed up Zack and Harvey Moscot, the king and prince of eyewear, to resurrect a pair of bold frames from their archives that work equally well as sunglasses or eyeglasses.
Limited to only 300 pairs total, the Moscot x Uncrate Ipish is available with polarized G-15 mineral glass lenses or with a simple demo lens for replacing with your own prescription at the eye doctor or eyeglass store of your preference. Made of jet black acetate, the squared frames sport black hinges and rivets, along with subtle gold temple branding and numbering. The 51 x 21 x 143 sizing fits medium to large faces.

Ergonomic, easy to use, and easy to store, the K3 package also includes a unique dirt-blasting spray wand to take care of dirty vinyl siding, sidewalks, gutters, and driveways.
Sleek looks, silent wheels engineered in Japan, zero zippers, and a built-in battery bank — this isn't just another suitcase. Arlo Skye has innovated upon what's already great about modern luggage (sleek, durable) and added additional functions, while eliminating some weak spots. No wonder it has won multiple international design awards. An anodized aluminum-alloy shell that helps reduce scratches is the type of material you'd expect to find on bags twice the price. The TSA-approved battery pack that fast-charges a phone or tablet up to five times is removable and rechargeable, and it fits flush in a slot between the luggage handles for easy access. The clasp closures — the kind of thing you're used to seeing on professional gear cases — eliminate the chance of a damaged zipper or busted seam. At a size that fits all standard international cabin carry-on bins, this suitcase is a travel companion you won't want to fly without.
Height: 22" / Width: 14" / Depth: 9" / Capacity: 38L

It's also equipped with Bosch's Dual-Battery tech, allowing you to connect up to two batteries for a range of over 150 miles, letting you commute for several days on a single charge. Available in 400 or 900-watt configurations and a variety of colors, it's slated for sale in early 2018.

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.

Thanks to its gyroscopic stabilizer system, it makes riding as easy as leaning in the direction you want to go.

It keeps you visible at night with a powerful LED flood light on the front and twin LEDs on the rear, its all-terrain tire handles rough roads with ease, and the integrated parking stand means you don't need to find a wall when you're done riding.
Inspired by classic Viking longships, the Forge Drakkar Skateboard is a rugged yet refined take on a traditional longboard. The main deck is built from black walnut, with the edges left rough and high-end hardware underneath. A piece of hand-sculpted brass on one end provides a finishing touch, and thanks to a collaboration with Crucible New York, also supports a small company of Ghanese artisans. Limited to just 100 pieces.
Built using input from professional kayakers and rafters, the Klymit LiteWater Dinghy is a highly portable watercraft.

Convenient and eco-conscious, the CasusGrill is an ideal travel partner for your next campsite cooking session. Its 2017 Danish Design Award-winning build is made up of an FSC-certified cardboard base lined with naturally occurring lava stone, a bamboo grill rack that doesn't burn, and bamboo charcoal briquettes. It comes in a slim, easy-to-carry package that doubles as the base, and emits roughly 50% less CO2 than a typical disposable grill since it uses less coal. When you're done cooking, you can throw it in the fire, giving it the dual purpose of both cooking your meal and providing warmth. Available in single, double, and four-packs.
Sleek and powerful, the Evo WA Extendable Yacht can make your day on the water more enjoyable than nearly any craft its size. It starts with its namesake "walk around" deck that lets you move quickly between the bow and stern. The stern also transforms into a huge beach area thanks to walls that open hydraulically in under 30 seconds, creating over 25 square meters of space. The area can be outfitted to match your needs, with options like chaise-lounges, cushions that double as floating pads, and a retractable cooking area. Under the deck, you'll find two cabins and one bath, and the entire rig is controlled from a single iPad at the helm. Powered by twin Volvo Penta engines producing 435 hp each, it's capable of hitting a top speed of 40 knots, with a cruising speed of 32 and a range of 300 nautical miles.
Inspired by the flashlights made for NASA from 1968-1972, the Apollo Penlight is a tribute to the utilitarian implements used by its namesake missions. Brass was chosen for the build despite its weight for its resistance to corrosion and its inability to produce sparks. These new versions replace the original incandescent bulb with an LED tuned to emit a similar warm temperature light, and are water resistant to 100 meters, making them ideal for any environment, Earth-bound or otherwise.
