A rock climber and a locksmith walk into a bar…sorry, you gotta make up the rest. We found a key that’s better than other keys. Instead of working it onto a ring, you clip this one to anything. Good for runners, swimmers, surfers and others who must tote loose keys. It’ just like the ones you use now – only better. Why not? Source
The marketing guys at Porsche Design decided to call their latest piece of German-designed technology a shisha. Bong is such a dirty word. But a shisha is basically a bong with a tube like a hookah.

If your carabiner’s biggest job is attaching your water bottle to your messenger bag, you probably don’t need the performance of Black Diamond’s new locking carabiners with Magnetron Technology.

It’s handmade in Italy from vegetable tanned leather with wool felt detailing and all metal hardware.
