JBL L52 Classic Bookshelf Speakers

Hi-Fi enthusiasts trust JBL to deliver superior sound in a stylish set of speakers. But, most of JBL’s top-tier audio equipment maxes out the average audiophile’s budget. So we were thrilled to hear that the brand had unveiled a set of affordable, vintage-styled, powerful speakers in the L52 Classic Bookshelf Speakers. Available in black, blue, and orange front Quadrex foam grills, these speakers sport a 5.25″ low-frequency driver paired with a 3/4″ high-frequency driver and a 5-year manufacturer warranty. All for $1,000. Get shopping.

Howler-Bros-Voltage-Full-Zip-Jacket

Howler Brothers Voltage Full Zip Jacket

You can always count on Howler Brothers to keep you stylish and protected on the trail. The Austin-based apparel brand announced its Fall 2021 collection and, while we loved all of the releases, the Voltage Full Zip Jacket stuck out the most. This ultra-light jacket is perfect for backcountry hiking keeping you warm with 60-gram PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation and its quilted hood with an integrated wind cuff inside. Pair that with a bungee closure at the hem, a front kangaroo pocket, and a water-resistant 100% polyester rip-stop and you’ve got a jacket that can brave any Autumn conditions. Our favorite color option is definitely Colonel Mustard but it’s also available in Coal Black and Mountain Green.

Super73-ZX

Super73-ZX

We’ve long been fans of the Super 73 brand and we instantly loved their latest release which plays off the original success of the Z-series line. The Super73-ZX is an all-electric motorcycle that improves on all of Super 73’s previous models. Lighter frame, redesigned seat, improved ergonomics, larger battery, and more powerful tech. The result is a beautiful two-wheeler that can deliver an estimated 50+ miles max range in ECO mode, up to 1350 watts of peak power, and a top speed of up to 28mph. Perfect for long drives in the mountain this fall.

Samsung-Galaxy-Z-Flip3-5G

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G

One of the biggest tech announcements of the year was definitely the retro nostalgia of Samsung’s flipping and folding smartphones. The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, in particular, recalls the tactile sensation of slapping shut a flip phone paired with the contemporary convenience of a touch-screen smartphone. The Z Flip3 is an upgrade on Samsung’s previously released Flip 2 with a larger cover screen, more powerful camera, and stronger design.

Mr-Black-x-WhistlePig-Barrel-Aged-Coffee-Liqueur

Mr Black x WhistlePig Barrel-Aged Coffee Liqueur

This was easily one of my favorite beverages of the year so far. Cold brew liqueur brand Mr Black teamed up with WhistlePig for a complex, delicious Barrel-Aged Coffee Liqueur. Best enjoyed on the rocks or in a coffee old fashioned, this limited edition release would be perfect for late nights in fall. Sadly the first batch is sold out but hopefully we’ll see more hit the store in the next few months. And, if you’re looking for some good coffee liqueur, Mr Black’s standard release is top quality.

Palace Artois Collection

You can always count on Palace Skateboards for some next-level gear. So when they announced a collaboration with Stella Artois we knew we were in for a treat.

We’ve had our eyes on the jackets and of course those classy Palace Artois beer vessels.

Flat-Front-Pant-in-Chino

Flat Front Pant in Chino

Apparel brand Alex Mill released its Fall collection and we’re loving the simple silhouettes and cohesive color palette throughout.
