As you’re likely aware, we’re pretty big fans of Huckberry and their awesome line up of wares here at Coolector HQ so when we had the opportunity to curate our own line up of some of our favourite products on their site, we inevitably jumped at the chance. In the Huckberry x The Coolector Store, you’ll find an array of awesomeness from watches to outerwear and EDC to drinkware. Check out 5 of the best bits from the Huckberry x The Coolector Store below:
Rhodes Dolomite Boots ($248)
The Italian Dolomites are the birthplace of alpine footwear, and also the namesake of Rhodes’ first Italian-made boot. Handmade in Italy by a sixth-generation family-owned manufacturer, it’s a robust, adventure ready, everyday boot that embodies what Rhodes is all about: comfort, longevity, and high quality craftsmanship. The uppers are cut from a premium European vegetable-tanned leather that’s lined in a flexible calfskin.
The combination of the two make for a comfortable but hardwearing boot that takes little break-in time to feel like you’ve been wearing them for years. Finished with soft natural rubber soles for a soft, cloud-like ride, they’re a workhorse boot that’ll keep your feet comfortable all day long.
Proof Rover Highlander Jacket ($198)
Dusty trails, roadside haunts, getting a little bit lost—the Rover Highlander is your steadfast sidekick through thick and thin. Crafted from the same rugged fabric that makes the Rover Pants one of Huckberry’s bestselling pants ever, this brilliant bit of outerwear has built-in stretch so you’re free to move in any direction but enough structure and strength to outlast years of adventuring.
With a blueprint reminiscent of the iconic M65 military field jacket, this jacket will go well with just about everything in your wardrobe – especially a pair of Rover Pants. And when it’s time to get the wheels turning and explore the great unknown, we’re almost always reaching for the Highlander to keep us equipped for whatever the world throws our way.
Goruck GR1 500D Slick 26L Backpack ($295)
It’s safe to say that best things in life are worth waiting for and, for the first time in nearly ten years, GORUCK have decided to revamp the Slick GR1—an understated, streamlined version of their world-renowned GR1 and Huckberry had the opportunity to work with them to bring it back from the archives.
Just as robust, adventure ready and no-nonsense as the first batch that took the world by storm, this Slick GR1 is built for cities, war zones, and beyond. Oh yeah, it’s exclusively available at Huckberry too, so grab it while it’s still in stock.
Vaer A5 Automatic Watch ($449)
It’s not difficult to fall for VAER Watches. Everything they stand for is perfectly on par with what we’re all about at Coolector HQ. They’re all about making sure that all their watches are adventure-ready, robust as all get-out, designed to be worn for any occasion, and set at a price point that won’t leave your bank manager wincing.
Taking their design inspiration from vintage watches and designed with modern simplicity, VAER’s A5 model has a hardy stainless steel case, Japanese-made automatic movement, and two interchangeable straps. In addition, all VAER Watches are carefully assembled in Los Angeles by skilled artisans who take great pride in their craft and share the VAER vision for a truly quality timepiece.
James Brand Pike Pocketknife ($198)
A striking, retro-style pocket knife which is made to last for generations to come. Imagine, if you will, a classic folder – that ideal discovery from a vintage shop case, an heirloom scored from your grandfather’s collection. Now imagine that knife built with the understated design and contemporaty knifemaking know-how that The James Brand brings to each and every release of EDC they make.
Crafted with a Sandvik steel blade and an olive Micarta handle, The Pike is a non-locking, slip-joint knife that’s slim, eye-catching, and designed for your pocket instead of your hip. It’ll impress you every time you use it, and it’ll impress your descendants when they use it a generation from now.
