Despite its short 28 days, a lot managed to fit itself into February this year. Valentine’s Day came and went, we enjoyed interesting finger food recipes while watching the Patriots win the Super Bowl in the most boring fashion ever, and we even saved a bit of dough over the president’s day weekend before watching Free Solo take home an Oscar. To round things out, we’ve pulled together a list of some of the most popular products we covered along with our most viewed YouTube video and most read stories. Check them all out below.
Lodge 10.5-inch Skillet
“Lodge’s cheap skillets are, for the most part, the cheapest, and are still made in its South Pittsburgh, Tennessee, factory (the same town it was founded in more than 100 years ago).” — Will Price
“The Bouqs Co. lets you choose between 18, 36 or 54 tulips delivered with a signature vase.” — J.D. DiGiovanni
James Brand Ellis Knife
“If there were only one iconic pocket knife, it’d likely be the Swiss Army Knife. The James Brand wants to replace it.” — Tanner Bowdon
“That conception you have about slippers — that they’re fluffy, indoors-only shoes — it’s wrong. Not entirely, (most slippers likely fit that description), but some examples refute it, elevating the slipper to something that’s not only cozy but practical too.” — Tanner Bowdon
“Leatherman, like Kleenex and Band-Aid, is one of those brand names that has come to stand for the category of products it produces: multi-tools.” — Tanner Bowdon
Patagonia Micro-Puff Jacket
“Since it came out in the fall of 2017, Patagonia’s Micro Puff Jacket has been our choice for the best synthetic insulated jacket.” — Tanner Bowdon
“The Sony WH1000XM3 are the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy. This past December we gave them a 2018 GP100 award, which we give to the 100 best products of the year.” — Tucker Bowe
Herman Miller Aeron Chair
“By virtually any measure, Herman Miller’s Aeron task chair is one of, if not the, greatest desk chair of all-time. It was the first successful integration of airy mesh into task chair design. Shoot, it even earned a spot in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.” — Will Price
Billy Reid Bond Peacoat
“Made in Italy, the double-breasted coat features a tailored fit, horn buttons, a single vent and leather detailing under the collar.” — John Zientek
