You’d never guess what Hookie Co. has been up to lately. It just started a new brand known as Days on Tracks, and it builds…pop-up campers. The DOT Alpaca is a single unit that incorporates the rooftop tent, rooftop loading area, and opening window hatches. The tent attaches to the pickup bed but can also be removed. Remove gear from the loading area, pop up the tent, and you have sleeping quarters for two. Inside the tent is a full-sized bed and selectable ambient LED lighting. The unit is made with a powder-coated aluminum frame, and the doors can be made with aluminum, wood, or lightweight carbon fiber. You can choose between four different tent colors, too: Black, Sun Yellow, Bright Olive, and Natural White. The Camper 1 can also take on accessories like awnings and additional lighting.


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
