1 – Filson Barrel Pack
Here’s a new duffel bag from Filson, in its simple barrel shape. It’s made from signature Filson materials- a tear-resistant ballistic nylon that is extremely durable but at the same time lightweight. Strong nylon can also be found on the handles and adjustable shoulder strap. Inside, you’ll find an elastic closure and a zippered mesh stow pocket. For smaller items you want to access quickly, there’s the exterior pocket.

2 – Bose SoundLink Micro Bluetooth Speaker
“Tiny, until you turn it on” is a slogan of the new Bose Soundlink Micro Bluetooth speaker. With dimensions of 3.87″ H 3.87″ W 1.37″ D and weight of 10.24 oz, you can take it anywhere you go, whether it’s camping, hiking, hanging out with friends. Besides being small, this speaker is very tough- it’s rugged and waterproof and thanks to its silicone rubber construction it can survive pretty much anything you throw at it (you can even throw it in a pool). A tear-resistant silicone strap makes sure you can carry and attach it easily. Bose Connect app allows you to control it and put it in either party or stereo mode. Finally, the battery lasts around 6 hours and you can charge it with a standard USB charging cable. Check out our Bluetooth buying guide.

3 – Texas Brand Coffee
Since it’s made in limited amounts, you shouldn’t wait to get Texas Brand Coffee. Why? This coffee is made from premium, organic grounds that are grown in Mexico. The beans are grown on small family farms that respect the fair trade standards and the tradition of coffee making. After roasting, grinding, and bottling, you’ll be left with the full taste of aromatic coffee. It’s packed in recyclable, French-made aluminum bottles that will keep the flavor and freshness. Each bottle fits half a pound of coffee, resulting in around 16 8-oz. cups.

4 – Jaguar E Type Zero
Described as the most beautiful electric car ever, Jaguar E Type Zero features an elegant and classic 60s design. In case you missed it, Jaguar decided to turn all their models into electric cars from 2020 onward. This one, in particular, was first shown just a few days ago. It features a 40kWh battery that gets fully recharged in up to 7 hours. It has a range of just under 170 miles, 220kW of power and can develop the speed of 0 to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds. According to the company, the “aim with the E-type Zero is to future-proof classic car ownership.” The release date is yet to be confirmed.
5 – Longbranch Cabin
Located in Longbranch, Washington, this cabin is a perfect forest retreat. The cabin was first built when the architect, Olson Kundig, was 18. Now, 60 years after, he expanded the tiny cabin into this beauty. It actually had several expansions during the years, now resulting in a 2,400 square feet cabin. Each part was integrated into the previous structure and all materials used are simple and accessible (wood, steel, plywood, recycled boards and glass).
6 – IWC 50th Anniversary Aquatimer Watch
Last week IWC gave a statement about the 50th anniversary of Aquatimer diver’s watches. They decided to create a special edition watch with the first Ceratanium case. This is the way to highlight their expertise but also promote this lightweight, unbreakable material. The case is very hard, corrosion and scratch-resistant. The watch shows a digital perpetual calendar with date and month, stop times. Not to forget that it’s water-resistant up to 10 bar, making it a perfect diver’s watch. This model is limited to just 50 pieces and comes with the price of around $52,300.
