First Look: Stio’s New Figment Freeride Collection
Stio has just released their inaugural freeride collection, which is made to draw out the lines of your dreams. They are introducing a fresh benchmark in freeride performance. The Figment Freeride Collection, with its striking pattern elements, freeride fit and tried-and-tested in the Tetons, is made to turn your imaginative visions into reality.
Figment Jacket ($499) comes in three colorways including Knotty Pine, Abyss Black and Fiery Agate. With its relaxed freeride fit, bold colors, thoughtful features and durable PeakProof™ fabric, Figment is a tribute to our collective pursuit of winter adventure. Lap the lifts, hike the headwall or head to the sidecountry with two-way underarm venting, interior security and stash pockets, peripheral hood adjustments and a comfortable collar and chin guard.
The matching matching Figment Bib ($479) is designed with ultra-durable 100% recycled polyester fabric and a protective PeakProof™ membrane, this bib seamlessly combines weatherproofing and breathability. Technical design lines, a chest-high bib and a relaxed freeride fit keep you covered and comfortable. With thoughtful pocket placements, inner thigh vents, and abrasion-resistant kickpatches, this bib is with you when it’s time to take the mountain with a new perspective.
Timbuk2 Updates It’s Classic Messenger Bag
It all began with a dream, then became a sketch, and eventually resulted in an iconic bag. It’s been over three decades since the first Timbuk2 messenger was released in 1989, and they are now advancing that legendary design with a brand new look. All of the features on their Classic Messenger Bag ($120) offer a better way to wear it, guard it, and organize it – from inconspicuous tweaks to greatly noticeable improvements.

G-Shock to Release Two League of Legends Inspired Watches
G-Shock is introducing two League of Legends-themed watches on October 3rd, but you better hope they’re waterproof because the cost may make you shed tears.
The GA100LL-1A, featuring the design of The Demolition Diva, Jinx, is priced at a low $200. On the other hand, the GMB2100LL-1A is an ornate full-metal watch that evokes Hextech magic, but it will cost you a blue essence—it’s set at an hefty $1,100 price tag.
