Vinegar is amazing. Depending on the kind, it can dress your salad, help your gut, clean your counters or quick-pickle your favorite veggies. In recent years, “fancy” vinegar has given way to drinking vinegar and also postured as non-alcoholic aperitifs or cocktail mixers, but now they’re entering even stranger formats. Perhaps you’ve seen apple cider vinegar gummies or liquid kimchi – but now, Acid League is teasing ‘vinegar popsicles.’ The brand has launched similarly unconventional products like Grape Soda Vinegar and Turkish Coffee Cocktail Vinegar but this new release is sure to make its way onto (health-conscious) rooftops in no time. Lucky fans can get a sneak peek at the new release via ThingTesting’s next Thing Drop, but try not to feel too bitter if you miss out. Today we’re looking at Patagonia’s new F22 collection, a climbing harness from Arc’Teryx and Noah’s new surfwear. This is Today in Gear.

Patagonia Previews Its New F22 Lineup
Patagucci fans rejoice! The new F22 collection will launch online next month, with a suite of innovative new products built to keep you trail-ready. The collection features gear like durable, lightweight mountain biking shorts, trail running shorts made with NetPlus (a 74 percent post-consumer recycled nylon made from recycled fishing nets) and the brand’s new ‘Responsibili-Tees ‘ which are carbon-neutral, 100 percent recycled and engineered using solar energy. The brand has also released a new 3-layer ‘Granite Crest Jacket’ designed for all-day hiking across wet conditions and teased an overnight trail run pack entitled the Slope Runner Exploration Pack. Fans can start to shop a few of these new releases now, though the entire collection will be available online next month.
Meet the Arc’Teryx Konseal
Arc’Teryx recently added the Konseal to its climbing harness lineup. The comfort-driven piece is the most affordable option offered by the brand and is built around a new waist belt shape that offers generous padding and relief from the traditional back and thigh pains that come with climbing. The brand’s first butterfly-shaped harness pulls discomfort off the lower back and makes use of two thick hip pads. Weighing in at just 12.9 ounces in a medium size and retailing for $130, this harness is a great option for every climber.
Lishen Launches Ergonomic Fixed Blade Knives
Christian Lishen is launching a new collection of fixed blade knives. With eight different models, each piece demonstrates Lishen’s dedication to artisanal knifemaking. Fans will likely flock to the Woodsman, which is Lishen’s tribute to the traditional puukko knife. The Woodsman is built for light camp and bushcraft jobs, but Lishen also equipped it with something he calls a “Scandivex” grind. There, he added a Scandi grind to the four-inch blade, ensuring the knife excels at bushcraft, woodwork and even food prep. A limited number of knives were sent to KnivesShipFree and DLT Trading, where users can shop the collection for $235 – $350.
Noah’s New Surfwear is More Than Wavy
Noah is awesome – and so is its new surfwear. The brand’s collection totes a series of knowingly simplistic surfboards (which will retail exclusively at the Noah Hideout in Amagansett and Dover Street Market Los Angeles) and sustainable wetsuits. Each wetsuit is made with 100 percent Japanese #40 Yamamoto limestone neoprene, which unlike other neoprenes, is not petroleum-based and is created using hydroelectric power while recycling its wastewater. The line is lightweight and decorated with small, characteristic graphics. Retailing for $598 each, the wetsuits are quickly selling out, but still available at the link below.
