Our climbing and cycling editor has been using the Ranch Road Cargo System ($500) to organize the back of his Subaru Outback and the side-by-side that he uses on his property. In the Outback, it keeps all his cycling and climbing gear from sliding around and prevents him from ever forgetting something.
Because our tester lives in Texas and it’s stupid hot, he also keeps a swimsuit, flip flops, a towel, and a change of clothes along with a RinseKit Cube in it. On his property, he uses the Cargo System to organize tools and hardware required for a day’s work, keeping them from getting jumbled together, which saves time.
The FireCan Elite ($250) is Ignik’s lightest and most powerful portable fire pit to date. Based on the scale and dimensions of a classic ammo can, the Elite is easy to carry by hand or haul in a vehicle. Stainless steel construction plus an anodized aluminum lid keeps the total weight down to 10 pounds even.
According to Ignik, the high-pressure propane outlet generates an impressive 55 BTUs per hour — the equivalent of 600-plus wick candles. We previously tested and reviewed Ignik’s Deluxe FireCan and can’t with to see what this Elite version can do.
When YETI dropped its lightweight Yonder water bottle last year, the GearJunkie team was dubious. The 1L version costs $28 — far more than an equivalent Nalgene. Still, in our durability test, the Yonder defended its premium price by besting the Nalgene in a drop test. Today, YETI adds two new sizes, 0.6L and 1.5L, to the Yonder lineup.
Additionally, the brand introduces the Tether Cap ($10), an add-on for the Yonder that creates a clippable lid for easy attachment and carrying. Following in the footsteps of Hydro Flask and Camelbak, the Tether Cap signals YETI’s expansion into the world of interchangeable lids and hydration accessories.
Indiana Jones’ wardrobe consists of wide-brimmed fedoras, safari shirts, and waxed canvas jackets — exactly the type of clothing Filson has made for over 100 years. Just in time for the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones film saga, Filson drops a curated capsule full of Indy-inspired apparel.
The collection’s standout piece is the Tin Cloth Short Lined Cruiser ($350), a heavy and hardy jacket with an old-school oil finish. According to Filson, “no other waxed canvas can match its durability and legacy of dependable protection.”
The New York Marathon is four months away, and many of its 50,000-plus racers have already begun training. New York may have the highest participation of any marathon in the world, but it’s just one of dozens of marathons billed for the fall. On’s Cloudboom Echo 3 road running shoe ($290) arrives just in time.
Five grams lighter than its predecessor and far more breathable, the Echo 3 is On’s “fastest ever” elite marathon shoe. Its castor bean-derived Helion HF hyperfoam offers “impact protection” and “supreme energy return.”
Traditionally, tent setup follows a predictable screenplay. One person unrolls an unwieldy pile of nylon while the other battles a tangled mass of poles and elastic. Next, all parties argue about the best way to put the components together. This classic sequence may soon be lost to time. Inflatable tents have arrived.
We recently reviewed an inflatable tent made by Heimplanet. After a rocky learning curve, it proved its concept. Now, Zempire raises the stakes with its EVO TL V2 Tent ($2,000) — a five-person behemoth that weighs as much as a sofa.
Zempire’s tent comes with all the luxuries required for comfortable family camping. An inflatable awning, configurable inner walls, and 86 inches of peak headroom make for a thoroughly cushy living space. Still, be sure to set it up a fair distance from the campfire — sparks are the bane of inflatables.
In most scenarios, analog watches aren’t strictly necessary these days. There are other ways to identify the time of day — the smartphone is the modern-day sundial. Still, in certain industries and dress codes, the wristwatch remains a timeless piece of sophisticated flair.
Farer makes watches; Worn & Wound is an online watch-related news hub. Together, the brands release the Limited Edition watch ($1,050), a no-frills time teller with a navy-and-gray color scheme. Billed as “a study in restraint,” the Limited Edition is free of extraneous features. It comes with a clean-cut gunmetal face, blue leather strap, and Farer’s signature: an extra-long second hand.
Campground cookware and cutlery can be difficult to keep organized. Between packing and unpacking the car, rummaging through gear, and critter-proofing your space, it’s easy to misplace a rouge spoon or an errant bowl. And because Magware’s magnetic bowls, plates, and cutlery sets are bound together by the magic of magnets, they’re difficult to lose.
As of July 5, Magware has presold $328,000 worth of the product on Kickstarter. Various sets are available, but the full set with bowls, plates, colorful assorted cutlery, and a carrying case can be preordered for a wild $360.
