The result of three years of research and millions of data points, the Casper Wave is a breakthrough in mattress design. Underneath its handsome exterior, you'll find the new, proprietary Natural Geometry System. It uses five layers of foam to mimic the natural contours of your body at 36 specific points, adjusting naturally to your shoulders and hips without sacrificing support, and keeping your spine properly aligned. Like the original, it uses open-cell foams to keep you cool at night. Designed and assembled in the USA.

More formal than their original yellow boot, although still casual enough for everyday wear, the Timberland Kendrick Boot is versatile enough to fit in anywhere. An upper crafted from premium full-grain leather paired with recycled rubber lug outsoles form a stylish silhouette, while an OrthoLite insole provides comfort for all-day wear. The lace-up front offers the look of a classic trench boot, but a convenient side-zip allows for a swift getaway.

Taking Billykirk's utilitarian, "doctor bag" style No. 165 Medium Carryall and making it even better is no easy task. Each bag is already meticulously crafted by hand in New York by a set of highly skilled craftsman, along with Chris and Kirk Bray themselves. To make the Billykirk x Uncrate edition of the No. 165, we started with the 20-ounce waxed canvas (black of course) and added our own American Bison hide for the handles, trim, and bottom reinforcement. From there, a Ranger Tan nylon interior was added to ensure items inside are easy to locate at a glance. A hinged top ensure the bag stays closed when it's meant to be, even if the straps and buckles aren't secured. The hand-stitched bag is just large enough for overnight endeavors while remaining appropriately sized for everyday carry as needed. A detachable shoulder strap makes longer carries easier, and when combined with the similarity outfitted Billykirk x Uncrate Dopp kit and Commuter Tote, you'll be set to haul enough for a long weekend.

The James Brand is a small team trying to do big things — something we understand very well at Uncrate. They're all about the details. They're aiming to build a longstanding company. And they're designing knives that they want to carry themselves. We knew all of this before we approached them to do a limited edition knife, and we also knew they'd knock it out of the park. The James x Uncrate County Knife is the result of our collaboration.
Built in the James Brand HQ in Portland, our edition gets the obligatory blacked-out styling, while retaining all of the utility and usefulness of your favorite pocket knife. The knife features beautiful ebony wood inlays, a black PVD-coated Sandvic 12C27 steel blade, black PVD-coated 416 steel handles, and a custom black paracord lanyard for easy retrieval. With a blade length of 2.5-inches and a clip-less design, the County knife will live in your pocket undetected — both by you and by anyone who thinks you shouldn't be carrying one. Ships free within 24 hours.
