What we like about these wireless headphones from Sol Republic comes down to the design. Rather than cramming all the technology and hardware into the earbud itself resulting in unwanted bulk or an oversized fit, the design of the Relay Sports Wireless places the batteries & electronics into 2 pods on the connecting wire you wear around your neck. This also makes it easier to pull one out for conversation without missing a step.
There’s more to actor Bryan Cranston than his role in Breaking Bad—not that there would need to be, considering it was one of the most popular shows in the history of TV. But in his own words, Cranston tells his life story. A chaotic upbringing as a child actor, a career in law enforcement, and eventually, the road back to acting. Filled with grit & truth, he includes all the details of his incredible journey.
Is it a wagon revival? Audi’s got their Allroad, Volvo just rolled out their V90 Cross Country & now this. Mercedes might just pull into the lead with the new E-Class All-Terrain. It is a top-of-the-line luxury wagon with 4MATIC all-wheel drive and an adjustable suspension system called Air Body Control to optimize ground clearance; it’s built for cruising through snow and off the beaten path. Protective wheel well flares keep dirt and dings off the paint and the front end borrows styling from their SUV line. Two diesel engine options are on offer, both with the nine-speed 9G-Tronic transmission.
It’s inevitable. Sooner or later you’ll find yourself in a warm, gently lit studio attempting to touch your toes while breathing deeply. When that day comes, make sure you’re rolling out a Baller Yoga mat. It’s made of 100% pebble grain football leather. Pigskin, bro. And it’s not just primal, it’s functional: the grain gives you grip. And when you’re twisted up in wheel pose, you’ll need it.
The sleek & minimalist Desk 02 from St.Louis-based Artifox design studio is every bit as functional as it is good looking. There’s a built-in dock for all your devices as well as a mesh cable grid for keeping cords organized & neat. It assembles in minutes & several desk accessories are also available, like hooks & an elevated stand. Made in the USA.
At 3744 cu.in. of volume, the Mountain Duffel from Colorado’s Topo Designs is an adventure-size haul bag that will handle all your gear. It has a large main compartment big enough for ski boots or a whole rack of climbing gear. It’s made of ballistic 1000d Cordura and features stowable straps for carrying it as a backpack. Made in the USA.
To prepare you for Apple’s phasing-out of the headphone jack, we recommend BeSound’s Thunder earbuds. These noise-cancelling MFi certified buds plug straight into the Lightning port on your device and offer a built-in mic plus an “Aware-mode” that cancels out most but not all ambient sound, keeping you safer when you’re out on the streets.

Available 10/23.
