It’s official - Toyota is bringing back the Land Cruiser. Originally launched in 1951, the Land Cruiser enjoyed 70 years in the spotlight before being discontinued in 2021. Now, thanks to a recent teaser on Instagram, fans are already rallying around a new — and improved — model. That said, official specs are sparse right now; with some fans expecting a Land Cruiser Prado and others insisting the car is more likely to be released as a 2025 model. Well, worry not, because we’ve done our research and are here to help quell your fears (and stoke your expectations). So read on to learn everything we know about the upcoming Land Cruiser.
Today we’re taking a look at a huge gaming monitor, a luxury flask and a chic hiking vest. This is Today in Gear.

Originally debuted at CES 2023, the new ‘49” Odyssey OLED G9FSC 240Hz Monitor’ ($2,200) is now officially available for pre-order. Billed as an incredible gaming monitor, the new device boasts a 49” curved screen that wraps fully around your field of view for an unmatched, fully immersive experience. With a .03 ms response time, there’s no game you won’t want to try on this new behemoth.
The Bremont Hip Flask ($160) is a simple, stunning piece of gear. Produced by its namesake luxury watchmaker, the 150ml flask boasts a premium 316 stainless steel construction and comes equipped with a tiny leather strap. It’s topped with a brass cap and was originally inspired by vintage Jerry Cans, and fans can spot a chic laser engraved panel fit with the Bremont logo.
Fans can bring home the new 12” Cast Iron Skillet for $400. Produced by Butter Pat Industries in Maryland, each pan is carefully hand-cast to ensure a smoother, thinner build. Equipped with an ergonomic handle and two pouring spouts, the pan is made for everything from the campfire to your home stove. Polished, pre-seasoned and free of any PFOA/PTFE engineered coatings; this may be the last skillet you’ll ever need.
Designed to help you tote your gear (and water) on every hike and ‘alpine run,’ the new ‘Norvan 14 Vest’ ($190) comes in black and bright yellow and four unisex sizes. The full vest arrives pre-fit with two 500ml hydration flasks and a full 14L capacity. It’s big enough to carry clothing, snacks and other essential gear. That said, fans looking for a more streamlined running vest can also find men’s and women’s versions — i.e. the Novan 7 Vest ($160) — which comes with just enough room for the same 500ml flasks plus multiple flat-packed pockets across the front and back of the vest.
The new ‘Ostrich Chop Saw Mule’ ($160) comes in black and was dropped beside a sister silhouette: the Jacquard Chop Saw Mule in Maroon/Espresso. It’s the brainchild of the ‘Oakley Factory Team,’ where new designs are conceptualized by Brain Dead and ‘powered’ by Oakley. As a result, the shoe is striking, strange and ultimately an avant-garde take on the brand’s very first Kevlar shoe’s texture.
