The Best Gear For Car And Bike Lovers
Deck the halls, eat the turkey, keep the cat out of the tree and you’ve got the beginnings of a great holiday season. These are some gift suggestions to make it even more memorable.
Gerald Genta Mickey Mouse Watch $23,200
Knowing the time is important. It is important to know what time it actually is. Act fast, too – they’re only making 200 of these ultra-exclusive Mickey Mouse watches which tie in with the forthcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar. “Your old pal Mickey” is front-center, naturally, but he’s also kicking a soccer ball. There’s nothing Mickey Mouse about the watch’s guts, though – you’ve got a 41 mm steel case and a mother-of-pearl dial where the company used 14 plates to create the color pattern of the design. In order to increase volume and brilliance, the various areas were covered with transparent lacquer. It’s also water-resistant to up to 300 feet, and it’ll go 42 hours with no charging.
Nikon Z 30 One-Lens kit $850
This is an extra-small portable mirrorless camera that does away with a traditional viewfinder (you open a monitor door mounted on the rear to see what you’re shooting) Yet it is plenty potent with the precise, rich detail the badge is known for and its size makes it easy to vlog or livestream with. Your APS-C/DX-format image sensor and EXPEED6 image-processing engine, as well as NIKKOR Z lenses, will allow you to capture high quality video.
The Z 30 One Lens Kit combines a compact, lightweight Z 30 camera with a NIKKOR ZX16-50mm f/3.5-66.3 VR lens. The NIKKORZ 16-50mm lens features a wide zoom range and built-in VR image stabilization. It is also quiet, making it great for video.
True Classic Dark Heather Indigo Active Joggers 49.99
True Classic makes fine active wear, in addition to their famous t-shirts which de-chubbify men’s waists. You’ll wear these joggers while jogging but they also, believe it or not, dress it up enough to hit the mall or sit at a chain burger or Italian joint with someone who is probably dressed the same way, especially if you have kids. The point is that TC’s not just doing the spanx-for-dudes thing – you can restock your whole casual wear wardrobe from ‘em, and all of it’s high-quality, like yourself.
Trek Bicycles FX+ 2 – $2,499.99
FX+ 2 is an easy-to-use city ebike that’s lightweight and portable. “Every errand run is an excuse to ride,” kvells Trek. “Long commutes become quick joyrides. Big hills are big fun. Your car is your backup. That’s forward-thinking!

Cat Utah Boot ($300)
Rooted in Cat workwear heritage, the Utah Boot, in collaboration with Nigel Cabourn, is inspired by the brand’s most iconic industrial boots. The Utah Boot combines Cat features with military-inspired materials and vintage-inspired textures. It redefines workwear expression. It features a steel-toe and a Goodyear welt around the outside. It features a black sole, full-grain leather protections, and a heavy-duty canvas quarter-panel camo-print that Cabourn personally selected. Its tough nature is highlighted by the suede texture in rich army green, while the yellow Cat branding makes it stand out. This kicker is built to last.

Samsung Galaxy A53 5G $349 (But deals abound.)
This stylish, lightweight phone measures 6.3×2.9×0.3 inches. It weighs in at about 6.7 ounces and feels far more expensive than its actual cost.

It’s got four cameras on the back, starting with a 64-megapixel main camera with an f/1.8 aperture and optical image stabilization (OIS), a 12MP wide-angle camera with a 123-degree field of view, and a pair of 5MP cameras for macro and depth.
Goodies include Night mode and a Pro mode, Samsung’s Single Take mode, and video recording up to 4K and 30fps or FHD at 60fps. There isn’t a headphone jack – you can buy an adaptor –but the volume and clarity of the unit’s in-built speakers is formidable.
Mission Workshop’s Gradient Glove $165
These gloves will complete any fella’s “I mean business” look while warming the digits and allowing you to work your phone, find your keys and operate your machine without having to take them off.
The Gradient is Mission Workshop’s latest collaboration with glove manufacturer Philleywood. Developed from Mission’s classic Strasse series, the length has been pared down to cut just above the wrist, which allows not only total range of motion for any possible function but also guarantees 3-season use from cold days out in the city to long days cycling or exploring the backcountry.
Just like Mission’s previous collaborations, the Gradient is handmade in California in numbered batches to create the perfect melding of classic craftsmanship and material technology with practical details to prolong life and equip you for the long haul.
Zerofit Heatrub Ultimate baselayer (from $90)
Don’t forget Fruit-of-the loom long underwear or a trip to Target for a pair of pants, man. Zerofit’s Heatrub Ultimate Baselayer is like having your body wrapped in a baked potato.
Technologically enhanced ‘Heat Threads’ inside this garment are activated through movement, gently brushing against the skin to generate warmth instantly. Unlike most other baselayers, the Ultimate does not work on the basis of ‘compression for heat’ – so not only does it provide greater warmth for motorcyclists, they also don’t feel restricted by an inability to move freely. The Ultimate has been designed to work best in a temperature range of 14° Fahrenheit thru 50° Fahrenheit and Zerofit also offers Heatrub Ultimate Leggings (From $90) and Heatrub Ultimate Socks ($27) which perform in the same way as the top and are popular addition for many riders who want to be warm from top to toe.
Harley-Davidson Men’s Baxter Shoes $72
These Baxter sneakers are tough and durable. They can be used for casual occasions as well as long trips. Take care of them and they’ll last you forever. They feature leather upper, textile lining, have a shaft height of 4.5”, 1-inch heels and a rubber outsole.
