Each new version just gets better and better – and the GoPro HERO6 Black is the best yet! With the new GP1 chip, the HERO6 has twice the performance as the HERO5 meaning the image quality for both video and photos is amazing. The 4K60 and 1080p240 video not only creates crisp image quality, it also produces epic slow-mo videos. Like the HERO5, the HERO6 has voice command control ability and it is waterproof without housing up to 31 feet. However, our favorite new feature is Quik Stories. Take a video clip or photo and the HERO6 sends it directly to the GoPro app for easy editing and sharing across your social channels and more. This is the perfect gift for the outdoor adventurer, social media butterfly, or the amateur or aspiring filmmaker.

Durable, F.A.S.T to deploy, and rugged. This knife is a one-hand opening workhorse with a 420HC tanto blade that can cut through anything; the black oxide coating and G-10 handle minimize slip to keep you safe in critical conditions.
The Propel Downrange Auto knife is a direct result of Gerber’s relationship with military personnel, and there’s more to this automatic knife’s design than its desert tan color. Building on the field-proven performance and fast, one-handed blade deployment of the long-popular 06 Auto knife, the Propel Downrange packs the same level of full-size utility and durability in a slimmer, more pocket-friendly profile. The Propel Downrange is as easy to handle and store as it is to open under pressure. Not to mention it is one killer piece of ECD for your daily kit!

Impressive! Not only do they give back with each bottle sold, they make a pretty tasty selection of wines. For the holiday season, we suggest ONEHOPE’s California sparkling wines that are decked out with glitter. Not only are they delicious, crisp, sparking wines – they are showstoppers from the first look.

Elway’s is a 7 time recipient of the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator magazine and is known for it’s extensive wine list and high end cuisine. So naturally it makes sense that they capture that celebratory spirit and experience of the Elway restaurants and capture it in a bottle of wine.

Cuisinart introduces a new way to make authentic cold brew coffee – in as little as 25 minutes! Like traditional cold brewers, the Automatic Cold Brew Coffeemaker saturates coffee grounds in cool water, never exposing them to the high temperatures that release oils which can create an acidic taste. Unique spin technology circulates coffee through water for total flavor extraction in a fraction of the time manual brewers require. Results are naturally smoother and sweeter! Three flavor strength options provide a customized coffee experience unique to cold brew, and coffee can be refrigerated in the 7-cup glass carafe for up to two weeks. The carafe and all removable parts are dishwasher safe for quick and easy cleanup.
