Polyver’s winter boots are suitable for a wide range of outdoor activities and are essential for facing winter actively and without fear.

BLAQ Pumpkin Fresh Peepers
BLAQ’s Pumpkin Fresh Peepers are rejuvenating, hydrating, detoxifying, and perfect for travel. Pumpkin extract, red algae, sodium hyaluronate, and konjac root work together to increase under-eye hydration, reduce puffiness, and stimulate collagen production. They’re great to use about 20 minutes before getting ready for a night out on the town! BLAQ also donates $1 of each US purchase of Pumpkin Fresh Peepers to The Trevor Project.
The Red Eye Hoodie for Women
The Red Eye Hoodie was the very first style we designed. The idea was born from the need for a garment that had the style and function to take you from the plane and through your journey. A nice and easy pullover hoodie was a great place to start. By adjusting the hood shape we were able to create a hood that can double as a sleep mask. We added a mitten feature to what we call the “3 Way Cuff.” This comes in handy when you need to stay warm or when you don’t want to touch anything with your bare hands.

Uncharted Supply Co.
The Athena (MSRP: $139) brings peace of mind to any road trip, knowing you’ll have back-up power or a jump start in seconds if your car battery dies. The Athena will get you back on the road quickly and since it doubles as a charger, will ensure your phone remains at full battery in case of emergency. The Athena features 16000mAh charging capacity, which provides 15 jump starts for most vehicles and 10 full charges for any phone or laptop.
