Fine things to want

BUN­DLE UP, DRESS DOWN

A short-sleeved jacket seems like a con­tra­dic­tion in terms, but that’s the bold idea be­hind the North Face Ul­tra Lite Water­proof Short-Sleeve Jacket. It’s made from water­proof-breath­able ma­te­rial, hides a hood be­hind a zip in the col­lar, and weighs in at less than 5 ounces. The ma­te­rial is so light (yet tough), it com­presses down to the size of a wal­let. Orig­i­nally de­signed with long-dis­tance run­ners in mind, the Ul­tra Lite is ideal for out­door fun in ports of call with lots of sun — and the oc­ca­sional trop­i­cal down­pour. thenorth­face.com

IN FULL FLOWER

Mag­nus and Bella are Bri­tish jewelry ar­ti­sans who, for decades, have been mas­ter­ing the art of mak­ing pre­cious me­tals come to life. For their “Sakura” range, they’ve cho­sen tra­di­tional Ja­panese de­pic­tions of cherry trees as in­spi­ra­tion for neck­lace and ring sets. Gnarled limbs of pre­cious me­tals wind around blos­soms made of gems in shapes rem­i­nis­cent of ni­honga paint­ings, crafted out of a se­lec­tion of ma­te­ri­als. Mag­nus and Bella also cre­ate beau­ti­ful be­spoke pieces from … well, what­ever you’d like, from heir­loom stones to an­tique stamps to beau­ti­ful shells found on your trav­els. mag­nu­sand­bella.co.uk

BE­YOND STEPS

The Po­lar Loop of­fers some­thing be­yond other ac­tiv­ity track­ers: the abil­ity to set per­sonal daily ac­tiv­ity goals based on more than just steps. It can even record your fit­ness data as you swim, let­ting you know how many calo­ries you’ve burned, how high your heart rate has got­ten, how long you’ve been sit­ting and rest­ing and how close you are to your in­di­vid­ual goal. It’s also a mo­ti­va­tional ex­pert, of­fer­ing feed­back and ad­vice – and track­ing your sleep pat­terns to make sure you’re get­ting the right kind of rest. po­lar.com

HER­RING­BONE ON THE HARDSHELL

Ted Baker has de­signed an ideal suit­case for trav­el­ers bound for town or coun­try. The Packit Snall Her­ring­bone Suit­case is com­pact enough for the carry-on com­part­ment, but solidly made of tough, light makrolon poly­car­bon­ate with alu­minum de­tail­ing. It’s got a TSA-ap­proved com­bi­na­tion lock pro­tect­ing it on the out­side, with room in­side for more than 10 gal­lons of gear. The sil­ver-col­ored shell and em­bossed tweed-pat­tern panel give it a dis­tinc­tive look that co­or­di­nates well with what­ever you’re wear­ing, wher­ever you’re bound. ted­baker.com
