Quality in Focus
Nikon Z 50
Your techie will take his or her photography (and Instagram) game to the next level with the Nikon Z 50. This small-but-fierce mirrorless shooter features a slim, sleek, rugged design ready-made to log countless miles and vistas. It has a focal-plane, phase-detection AF sensor that captures images in staggering detail, even in changing light. And ’grammers will more than “like” sharable stills and videos that capture the essence of the experience at hand. The camera’s built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth interface with Nikon’s SnapBridge smartphone app for easily transferring pics and vids. Plus, the app converts your phone into a remote monitor for mirroring what the Z 50 sees.
Good luck finding a long-sleeve button-down that you’d consider versatile. The Linksoul Rambler is the one. This woven-knit top is crafted from a moisture-wicking blend of cotton, polyester and Lycra. It’s pajama-level comfort melded with confident, casual style.
Protect Your Investment
Club Glove Last Bag
Travel like the pros. The timeless Club Glove Last Bag preferred by Tour players is available in three sizes and 23 colors. Its collapsible design accommodates any club up to 47-inches, with ample room for additional gear. The telescoping Stiff Arm club protector is included to absorb the full force of travel impacts.
All Day Shade
Maui Jim Cook Pines
Maui Jim’s Cook Pines polarized sunglasses ooze cool. The look is traditional aviator, but the style is pure Maui Jim. A deep lens height means never having to look under the rims when addressing the ball.
Create Airport Envy
Stitch Golf Roller Duffel
The designers at Stitch have hit upon the ultimate fashion-function combo with a lot of their pieces. Their Roller Duffel Bag is certainly no exception. It is, however, exceptionally handsome and offers a handful of features (the wraparound, drop-the-top zipper chief among them) that establish the roller as the go-to bag for frequent travelers.
Rough and Ready
True Linkswear Original
Road Warriors need footwear that’ll get the job done no matter the conditions. The job in this case is to provide a stable base, withstand harsh weather and remain forever comfortable. The TRUE Original ticks all the boxes.
Whatever the Weather
Peter Millar All Day Reversible Vest
The Peter Millar All Day Reversible Vest performs admirably in many different environments and looks great in the process. The windproof, water-resistant shell side features a smart, diamond quilt pattern. The reverse is a cozy, super-soft microfleece for optimal warmth. Versatile and gorgeous.
Get Away From It All
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700
Plugging in and tuning out can make even the most arduous travel days (looking at you, NYC to Bandon) seemingly fly by. With the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, you can dial in one of its 11 levels of noise cancellation to amplify the things you want to hear while tuning out the things you don’t. The four-microphone system provides next-level voice isolation, as well.
