Finally ready to run off some of that winter weight? Do it safely (and warmly) with the Saucony Ulti-Mitts ($20). Made of warm and moisture-wicking DryLete, the glove-mitten hybrids have a removable flashing LED light and Saucony reflective logos to increase your visibility. The Ulti-Mitts also have a stash pocket and plush cloth wipes (for snot?) on the back of both wrists.
This "smoke-weight" snowboard will make you feel like you're riding on air. Known as the lightest board on the slopes, the Burton Vapor Snowboard ($750) has an Alumafly core that combines aluminum honeycomb technology and Multizone EGD wood-grain construction, along with Carbon Vaporskin Lite technology (the same stuff found on space shuttles) to give you a super lightweight board that'll have you slicing and dicing all day.
For Issue 05, we gathered ten of the world's best Barn Finds, ten of the most interesting caviar-and-potato chip pairings, three spectacular places to stay in Italy, and thirty stunning objects of desire.

We've shot plenty of pool on tables with glass-like surfaces, but never on one actually made of glass. The G-1 Pool Table ($29,750) offers a striking modern design with a Vitrik playing surface that replicates the feel of felt, reinforced by a toughened glass bed. The open, modern frame offers International BCA-specification pockets, as well as an integrated ball return that lets you see the balls roam after they're pocketed. [Thanks, Ben]
Since their entry into the jeans market, Mott & Bow have changed the way men shop for denim. They use artisan techniques to make their jeans, with fabric sourced from some of the best mills in the world without cutting corners. And their Home Try-On Program is still the easiest way to get the best jeans and the best fit. Now, Mott & Bow is expanding their line of slim fit jeans again, taking the slightly stretchy, never too tight, nor too loose jeans and adding black and gray colorways. The new colors go with almost anything, and just like the rest of the line they're soft, comfortable, and will never look dated.

To kick off the launch of Uncrate Issue 05 and the return of our favorite not-smartphone, the Punkt MP02, we've partnered with Punkt, Grand Classics, and Mark Ronson to host a VIP screening of 1983's The King of Comedy, staring Robert De Niro. Personally selected by Mark Ronson, the film is a timely choice given its direct influence on this month's release of Joker, and as De Niro also appears in Joker as homage to his character in The King of Comedy. On October 16th at the Public Arts venue, at New York's Public Hotel, a select group of guests and friends of Mark Ronson, Punkt, Grand Classics, and Uncrate gathered for the screening and cocktails. Punkt, maker's of minimalist technology, chose to partner with Grand Classics on this screening due the increasingly frustrating effect of smartphones on the film community. Often used to snap pictures that leak a film's plot details well before release, smartphones have become a drag on sets around the world. Punkt's MP02 phone, a camera-less work of art, fixes not only this issue but allows anyone to disconnect from the distracting while remaining connected via a good old fashioned phone call or basic text message.
