Today in Gear: A Woody Fragrance from Montblanc, the Electric VW Bus & More

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at .


Of all the senses, none conjures up a mood or brings back old memories quite like the sense of smell. It’s a fact that a certain French writer found out firsthand when he was so moved by the scent of a madeleine biscuit that he had to go and write a four-thousand-page novel just to clear his head. To that effect, if you’re looking for a fragrance that hits all the right notes, Montblanc’s Explorer Eau de Parfum is a good place to start. Launched earlier this year, Explorer is a woody, worldly, leathery aroma — with top notes of Sicilian bergamot, a powerful body of Haitian vetiver and a base made from Montblanc’s exclusive, ethically sourced Indonesian patchouli. The fragrance comes in a contemporary glass bottle printed with a distinctive Saffiano leather motif and a matching outer box. Explorer is a bold but balanced scent, evoking a timeless sense of masculinity and inspiring new memories for years to come.

Today in Gear: An Upgrade for Your Winter Gloves, The North Face’s Trippy Collaboration & More

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at .


In the cold winter months, keeping your hands warm is vitally important. There are many gloves out there for the job, but for most of them, their function stops at just retaining heat. Hestra has developed a glove that brings much more to the table — the Ergo Grip Active. The heritage Swedish brand starts with a brushed polyester lining interior for insulation, and then uses a combination of goat leather on the palm (for maximum grip) and Gore-Tex Windstopper Infinium (for windproof warmth). The shape is made with pre-curved fingers, reinforcement at the index finger and a leather pull strap with velcro. So whether you’re using these gloves for working, skiing or anything else, they’re going to keep you warm and protected without sacrificing any dexterity.

Capable of keeping your coffee hot for that seven-hour road trip or your cocktail frosty for a 10-hour train journey, this travel mug will keep you hydrated and won’t spill with its trigger-action, push-button lid for one-hand drinking.

Today in Gear: A Minimal Midnight Blue Watch, the Tesla Cybertruck & More


Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at .


NOMOS Glashütte has released its latest watches just in time for the holidays. Both models are from the brand’s Tangente line — one with a 35mm case and the other a tick larger at 38mm case. Both are as sleek and minimalist as ever, with striking midnight blue dials and gleaming precious metal accents: gold hands sweep across the smaller model, while silver hands show the time on the larger one. Under the dial is the classic NOMOS handcrafted and manually-wound Alpha caliber, which keeps on ticking reliably and precisely — you only need to wind it once every two days. The two new Tangente models come with a velour leather strap — pale beige for the 35 mm model, dark anthracite for the 38 mm — which is slender and elegant. Looking at this timepiece on the wrist, it’s no wonder Tangente is one of NOMOS Glashütte’s best-selling timepieces.

“Reasonable” is one of those terms that tends to go unmentioned among watch collectors; often neglected in favor of flashier talking points. And while the team over at Baltic may use the term to describe its Aquascaphe toolwatch, the speed at which it sold out this past June was anything but — and for good reason. Built with stainless steel and scratch-proof, double-domed sapphire glass, a screw-down crown and case back, the Aquascaphe is an unreasonably good option for everyday wear. The popular model will be restocked on Baltic’s website on November 21st with three different dial colors: Blue Gilt, Black & Silver and Black Cream. Just don’t wait too long to order — the last batch was gone in under two hours.

Early Black Friday Deals

A lot of retailers have already announced which products they’ll be discounting come Black Friday, while some have gone so far to drop prices in advance. Here’s a list of the best early-bird savings you can jump on now. (Be sure to check back later — we’ll keep updating this list on a rolling basis.)

Amazon

Amazon’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals don’t officially kick off until Friday, November 22nd, but you can find some advanced savings below.

Walmart still hasn’t revelead its full list of Black Friday deals but there are a few gems available now.

When Is Black Friday?

Friday, November 29, 2019

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and has come to signify the unofficial start to the holiday shopping season. Before online shopping became the standard, thirsty deal shoppers would have to line up at retail stores immediately following Thanksgiving dinner to even get close to scoring first dibs on all sorts of sales. Nowadays, online retailers and brands typically start offering Black Friday deals anytime during the week of Thanksgiving, and sometimes earlier.

When Is Cyber Monday?

Monday, December 2, 2019

Cyber Monday, in turn, is the Monday following Thanksgiving and came about during the Early Aughts as a push for online retailers to convince shoppers to buy from home instead. Online shopping has since continued to grow: Online sales accounted for 14.3 percent of total retail sales in the United States last year.

How to Be a Smart Holiday Shopper

Bookmark This Page: This is our spot for your up-to-date information on all the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. As Black Friday deals start coming out, we’ll be posting the best of them right here.

Subscribe to Our Deals Email: One of the easiest ways to get the lowdown on the best deals out there is to sign up for our Deals newsletter that’s hand-curated by our editors. We do this for a living and our jobs are to find you the best products at the best prices. If you want the top Black Friday deals in your inbox, this is the simplest way to get them.

Skip the Lines: Do you really need that TV the night of Thanksgiving? Waiting in line, potentially in the cold, is never the way to be a smarter holiday shopper. That’s not to say you shouldn’t shop brick-and-mortar though, because you most certainly should be during the holiday shopping season — Small Business Saturday is a great day for that. But keep in mind that lots of bigger brands and retailers that offer online shopping will almost certainly put their “doorbuster” Black Friday deals online at some point.

Make a Plan: Buying things just because they’re on sale is a very slippery slope and one that retailers and brands are hoping to capitalize on during these shopping holidays. So go in with a gameplan and stick to it. A great place to start is by following our holiday gift guides. After spending the entire year rating and reviewing products, our staff has a keen sense of what the best gifts to give are. We’ll be publishing new guides through the month of November.

Set Up Price Alerts: Creating price alerts is a tactic that will directly help with not buying into the hype because you’ll know when the item you’re in the market for has a price drop. Camelcamelcamel is a great one for Amazon and Honey is a solid one for all other retailers. Both offer browser plug-ins that make them easy and effective to use. Signing up for a particular retailer or brand’s newsletter (hint hint: our Deals email, too) is always a good way to get advance notice of upcoming sales and exclusive offers as well.

Look for Retailers Who Price Match Competitors: Remember when you could bring in a physical advertisement from a competitor and that retailer would match the price? It’s beginning to happen more and more online now even. Price matching competitors is a tactic that the likes of Walmart is putting lots of weight behind this year as they look to match nearly every deal Amazon will offer up.

Utilize Cashback When It Makes Sense: Making the most of cashback options is a smart way to shop in general. Cashback services like BeFrugal, Rakuten, Honey and others can be an easy way to earn money back on top of savings. There are also a host of retailer credit cards that have great cashback programs — Amazon Prime Rewards, Macy’s and Walmart Rewards are all solid ones. But don’t just dive into getting a new credit card just to score special savings or get cashback. You need to evaluate that decision on a holistic credit view and philosophy. That said, if you were planning on signing up for one and are looking to capitalize on holiday offers, it’s one of the best times of the year to do so.

Today in Gear: A Base Layer with Built-In Ventilation, a Camper Van with a Configurable Interior System & More


Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at .


It’s great fun picking out a winter coat with the most technically advanced features possible, but the oft-neglected base layer selection is equally important. A good base layer should not only provide warmth but ample ventilation as well, which Smartwool’s new Intraknit 3D-knit Merino wool base layers were designed for. They’re built with an articulated performance fit and gender-specific ventilation placed for optimal thermoregulation, keeping you warm where it matters most. The Intraknit Merino wool layers are flexible and breathable, with durability, odor resistance and faster dry times. You won’t get these features from your old pair of long johns, and if you’re going to be performing strenuous activities in the cold, you’re going to seriously appreciate the difference.

Blundstone makes some pretty rugged boots. With premium soles, they’re boots that you can wear doing just about anything. Though if you’re looking for a series that is going to look a little bit more appropriate for a night out on the town in addition to looking the part for a day in the woods, you can opt for the Men’s Dress Chelsea Boots, Rustic Brown #1306. The dress boots are made slightly slimmer with a less beefy sole, giving them a dressier look overall with its chiseled toe. Don’t let the handsome appearance fool you however; the dress boots still offer all of the rugged specs of other Blundstone models like premium leather, a TPU outsole and a comfort shock absorption footbed, so you can enlist these boots for double duty for both work and play.

Today in Gear: A Technical Jacket Insulated with Swiss Wool, a Hand-Assembled Electric SUV & More

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.


ORTOVOX is known for combining wool with technical prowess for its mountain wear offerings in a market dominated by synthetics — and is one of the few brands on the market combining this old world material with modern design. Its SWISSWOOL Piz Boval Jacket is a great example of this, with its insulation made from virgin wool from local Swiss sheep. The wool insulation of the Piz Boval Jacket will keep you warm, even when wet (much better than down) and can absorb large amounts of moisture much better than synthetics. And the insulation isn’t the only wool in play here, with additional incredibly comfy merino mesh inserts. The water-resistant and windproof shell is made from recycled Pertex Quantum. ORTOVOX is committed to fair and safe working conditions, the sustainability and wellbeing of its sheep and ensuring that its products are manufactured in the most environmentally-friendly way possible. The SWISSWOOL Piz Boval Jacket is also completely reversible and made with natural and recycled materials so you will look and feel good on and off the slopes.

Of the seemingly infinite functions to add to a timepiece, few are as practical as the offerings of the Nixon Ripley. At a glance, the watch shows you the digital time, temperature and altitude; information that will be legitimately useful for a variety of outdoor activities and adventures. Other features include a chronograph, an alarm, second timezone, and of course, the day and date. But for the days where the only adventure is commuting into the office, the Ripley lets you activate “City Mode” — hiding the digital functions and leaving you with just a handsome analog face. This versatility allows you to have everything you could hope for in a watch, yet keep a simple low-profile look in your day-to-day.
