Can you see it? It’s a crystal-clear waterproof case that will fit just about any smartphone. Totally waterproof to 1-meter (that’s three feet) it also lets you shoot underwater photos and video. And even if you’re just a landlubber, keep in mind this case is impact-, dust-, and dirt-proof, too.
The idea of being “off the grid” is highly romanticized these days but let’s face it, for the few who actually do it on their annual camp out or canoe trip, it can get freakin’ dull. This wood-powered BioLite camp stove could change that. Not only does it burn wood in a clean, no-smoky-taste way, it generates electricity, allowing you to power up iPods, phones and such, via its USB port. Camping season is coming.
If this metal strongbox looks like a military surplus ammo box to you that’s because it is one. Actually, it’s a Zombie Box, which means it has been modified to be even more indestructible. They also get cleaned, blasted and refinished to look prettier than hell and even come with optional keyed locks. It’s like the ones your dad had only better.
The Key Fold from Hardgraft is made of premium leather and 100% wool felt and does exactly what the name implies. It folds and snaps shut to keep your keys from jingling around in your pocket like an off-duty janitor. It could even prevent your keys from jabbing you in the junk. And seriously, who doesn’t want to avoid that?
The classic Swiss Army knife is cool and all but here’s a new multi-tool from CRKT that does a whole helluva lot with minimal bulk. Designed by Custom knife makers Ed Van Hoy & Tom Stokes, this efficient little weapon features a utility blade, a sawtooth blade, multi-fit box wrench, wire stripper, Phillips & flat screwdrivers plus driver bits, and the essential bottle opener.
The Backcountry Boiler is a camp stove that burns stuff like sticks, pinecones and leaves instead of fossil fuel. It’s super light and the design of the little combustion chamber gulps in air for a quick heat up. Overall it’s a great idea unless it rains.
You’ve really got to be into some heavy construction to need the torque offered in this new ½-inch Hammer Drill from Milwaukee Tools. With a burly 650-lbs. of torque this thing will bore through wood, steel, and concrete like it’s going through microwaved margarine. Its brushless motor lasts longer and works harder while a Red Lithium battery extends run time by 50%.
It makes no sense that you’d protect your phone’s glass screen with another piece of glass, but since you’re not a glass expert, let us explain why it works. Firstly, the screen protector from Spigen isn’t just glass, it’s actually Oleophobic coated chemically treated tempered glass. That’s science-speak for “Smashproof.” Get it? Ok, later. Source
The Drill Sergeant Pro Bit Holder does more than just mount to your tool and hold your bits in place. It also keeps the rest of your junk snug. That’s right Handyman. With magnetized sleeves to hold 8 drill bits plus another magnetic catch all for screwing hardware this little accessory will really help you with the countersinking, if you catch our drift.
Hendrix, Page, Clapton … Why is it that the guitar-rock of the 60s and 70s is still the best stuff ever recorded? Well, a lot of it has to do with the amps. Instead of today’s solid state, digital gear, old amps were powered by tubes, giving the guitars their magical, warm & fuzzy tones. Fender is now releasing a series of vintage-style tube amps that capture the sound of the era and feature some unique designs. The Pawn Shop series may look like they came from the dusty backroom of a pawn broker but they’re brand new.
