Own The Cold

Fjällräven’s brand new Own The Cold Collection features winter weather gear for every user. Whether you’re chasing big mountain lines in British Columbia or commuting across Manhattan, the top shelf down jackets will keep you warm no matter the weather.

Tens 80s Christmas Ad

We discovered Tens Sunglasses earlier this year, and since our initial impressions they’ve launched new frames that we’re hoping make it into our Christmas stockings. Their Christmas themed ad hits all the high notes of cheesy 80s infomercials, and will probably be the most entertaining two minutes of your weekend.

Canada Goose: Out There

Canada Goose has been making extreme weather apparel for almost sixty years. Along the way, they’ve outfitted everyone from Iditarod winners and Polar Explorers, to bush pilots and arctic hunters. When you buy a Canada Goose Parka, you know you are getting a piece of gear that will last a lifetime.

City Of Gold

We can’t wait to see this documentary. While it traces the meteoric career of renowned food critic, Jonathan Gold, the story behind his passion is what will draw you in. Gold’s career is built on finding the hidden gems of culture throughout Los Angeles. Seeing the stories of each restaurant and life he has changed with his reviews renews our faith that one person really can make a difference.

Igloo Coolers: Labor of Love

Igloo has been building coolers for backyard barbecues and summer road trips since 1947. Odds are, at some point in your life you’ve pulled a cold beer out of an Igloo on a hot summer day. Their Sportsman Collection is the culmination of decades of careful design and listening to consumers. This year’s line up really does reflect what a labor of love it is.
