Everlane Merino Wool Scarf

via everlane.com

Weekly Theme: Cold Weather Prep

Tis the season of layers and warm accessories. The quintessential layering piece for the colder weather is a scarf. Scarfs need to be soft, and warm, but also breath. The key is good wool, which will provide that heat but also wick away moisture. Everlane, as you may be aware, sometimes does a “choose what you pay” option for their overstock. This wool and acrylic scarf is one of those items right now. Traditional price would sit around $115, however, Everlane’s direct to consumer format allow them to sell it for $55, but since it’s overstock, you can get it for as low as $22.

Junk Never Surrender Headband Review

Weekly Theme: Fall Workout Gear

If you have even mildly long hair, odds are you end up needing to wear a hat or a headband during a workout. When a barbell is involved, a brimmed hat can get in the way quite frequently, that’s why a headband is our preferred method of keeping the hair out of our eyes. Junk is the premier brand when it comes to cross-training headbands. Sweatbands are your father’s game, these are the new wave. So if you have hair you need to push back while power cleaning, snatching, or squating, a junk headband like this one is “wear it’s at.”

Fossil Leather RFID Passport Case Review

via fossil.com

via fossil.com

This week’s Goods theme is based around travel, and a touch of leather. Leather is simply more durable than almost all other natural materials used in clothing (other than metals of course), which makes it a perfect resource to add to your daily carry, and wear when traveling. To kick off this short week, we have the Fossil Leather RFID Passport Case. Sure you can just carry around your naked passport, but that tends to lead to bent corners, and marked up pages, which is the last thing you want when you are getting judged each time you head into a new country. This case also protects your passport from rogue RFID readers, has a zip pocket and 5 card pockets should you want to turn it into your travel wallet. Up your travel game, and be better than the college kids waving their bare passports around.

Hook and Albert Leather Garment Weekender Bag Review

via hookandalbert.com

If you are a consultant, travel is a huge part of life, from the point challenges to the specific order you unload your pockets in the security line, to the way you pack. Traditional carry-ons, while easy to roll around, tend to wrinkle the crap out of your shirts and suits. That’s where a garment bag like this one from Hook and Albert comes in. This Garment Weekender unzips completely, allowing you to lay two suits and a couple of shirts flat, reducing wrinkles, and store a pair of shoes in the sides. The bag then zips back up into a weekender duffle shape, providing more room for your other items like underwear, socks, ties, etc. Plus, this weekender has easy access pockets on the outside for your electronics, and fits nicely into an overhead, so you don’t have to check it (God forbid). The leather construction keeps everything dry, and elevates the look. So if you’re tired of running a hot shower for 4 hours when you get to your hotel, only to have to iron anyway, a change in your luggage could do the trick.

Outdoor Research Seattle Sombrero Review

via Huckberry.com

via Huckberry.com

While this isn't what we would suggest you wear in the city, or to your local bar (unless you've already achieved that kind of outdoorsy dad status) this hat is pretty perfect for the rainy days on the trail. No one carries an umbrella while hiking, it's simply impractical, but then how do you keep your face mildly dry during a dirt trail downpour? This Seattle Sombrero is not only awesomely named, it is one of the highest reviewed rain and sun shelter dome-pieces on the market making it our top choice for those who say "screw it" to rain delays. So if you are going camping for a few days or just trail running on a day with 55% chance of showers, this hat is definitely worth packing.
