Founded by OG backpack innovators Dana Gleason and Renee Sippel-Baker formerly of Kletterworks & Dana Design, Mystery Ranch has been making bags & packs for serious adventurers since 2000. The latest is their line of Mission duffels. Available in 3 sizes: 40, 55, & 90 liters, these durable duffels are made of 1000D lined nylon, feature YKK zippers and have hidden straps that convert them to backpack carry in a snap.
Made from Aerospace-grade Titanium, the Muncher is an ultra-light 10-function multi-utensil. Spork, knife, bottle & can opener, prybar, box cutter, screwdriver, peeler & cord cutter. It also comes in a rugged Hypalon pouch with a carabiner & includes a ferro rod firestarter. A funded Kickstarter.
A metallic update of the classic 1977 Scandinavian design by Erik Magnussen, the EM77 Vacuum Jug is an elegant, 1-liter stainless steel pitcher with a screw cap, rocker stopper and C-handle. It’s now available in 3 polished finish options: Mirror steel, Copper, & Brass.
The chrome-plated Buckle Tube Squeezer is an elegant little device to handle the annoying task of extracting the last bits of whatever from the tube—toothpaste, cosmetic products, & even fancy French mustard. Simple yet very effective & created for Alessi by the European design duo of Gabriele Chiave & Lorenza Bozzoli.
A gentleman such as yourself deserves a proper flask. And the 9 oz. Vermonter from Bexar Goods will certainly do your pocket proud. 100% handcrafted from copper, it is wrapped in a rich vegetable-tanned leather cover that’s hand-sewn with waxed linen thread. Made in Vermont & Texas, USA.
Designed by actor & activist (and art director) Neil Patrick Harris, this deck of premium American-made playing cards features sophisticated details like gold foil emboss and elegant typography. They were made to support the (RED) AIDS charity, so a portion of proceeds from the sale of every deck is donated.
Like all of Heimplanet’s products, the Motion series packs are thoughtfully designed for maximum versatility, durability, and intuitive function. The 20-liter Arc & larger 25-liter Ellipse both feature a streamlined wedge shape, 3D molded back padding, loads of stretch, padded & fleece-lined pockets plus hidden gear loops, and removable waist & sternum straps. They are equally adept at day-hikes & urban commutes.
This will keep you busy on those long holiday afternoons. Made of birch plywood, The 133-piece Infinite Galaxy puzzle maps to something called a “Klein Bottle” a type of 3-D shape where the inside & outside are indistinguishable—this means you can start the puzzle from anywhere on any side with pieces that fit together differently when flipped. The image is the center of our galaxy as seen from the Hubble Telescope.
The Treehugger wraps around tree-trunks of all sizes to keep your gear neat, organized, & up off the ground. Use it for hunting, camping and other outings where you want to keep cooking gear, fishing tackle and other essentials easily within reach. It attaches to the tree with webbing straps and a buckle. When not in use it folds up flat for compact transport.
