Two reasons why this tent is better than the moldy one stored in your garage: 1. It’s so easy to set-up you could pitch in the dark with one hand tied behind your back. 2. It’s 100% waterproof. So when the rain starts to fall (as it always does on camping trips) you won’t have to get up in the middle of the night and sleep in the car.
No, it’s not a German Thrash Metal band, although the Hardcore Hammer definitely pounds out some heavy hits. This framing hammer is built to withstand the rigors of professional carpentry, while lasting forever. On a regular hammer, the waffle pattern of the hammer face wears down quickly reducing its ability to grip & sink nails. This design protects the waffle providing for years & years of perfectly pounded nails.
Texting while driving is illegal in most states, but watching movies on your iPad is perfectly acceptable. This retractable carbon fiber iPad mount makes it easy. It attaches to your car seat and is fully adjustable, so you can get the perfect angle & height for staring at your iPad, while you drive.
Before hotdoggin’ 70s skiers made them a chic alpine accessory, wineskins or bota bags had been in use in Spain for a hundred years. It’s a simple, traditional goatskin bag made for carrying wine, or more specifically, sneaking wine into places where you’re not supposed to drink. This is the original Spanish botas, like the ones Ernest Hemingway drained in The Sun Also Rises.
Back in the day, most men carried a pocket knife. Nowadays, a smart phone, PDA or tablet is more the norm. If you’re stuck in the gulf between these two opposing worlds (as many of us are), we’ve found your knife. Victorinox, makers of the OG Swiss Army knife, have created a tool for the modern dude. It’s got a removable 4Gig USB drive, a retractable pen, an LED light & a nail file. It has a blade, too. So, it’s good for any unexpected action between your driveway and the office.
Let’s assume your ideal look is a bit more “urban casual” than “Ohio tourist on vacation.” To make sure you’re following all the way through, try this handsome camera bag disguised as a messenger bag. The roomy, waxed cotton canvas tote holds your DSLR camera, 3 lenses, 15” laptop and more. So even if you’re snapping photos of the sunset with a flash, you’ll at least look good doing it.
Do you take evening walks? Is it sick that you’d probably feel safer if you had a sword cane? Yeah, it’s pretty sick. Nuts actually. Imagine you and Fido strolling along in the moonlight when all of a sudden you’ve gotta brandish your handcrafted antler-handle cane, unsheathe the razor sharp blade and defend yourself mano a mano. Now who’s scared? Not you.
Another item on the never-ending list of things that suck: tangled-up headphone cords. It’s right up there with spilling coffee on the front of your shirt first thing in the morning. Or absent-mindedly walking your junk into the corner of a table. But will you quit coffee or wear a cup to work? No. Now, you can get the Budtrap and put an end to tangled headphone cords. The little rubbery nugget just plugs into the jack and solves this annoying dilemma.
It took the creative mind of recycled accessories designer, Laura Skelton, to give wacky, old neckties a second life. We thought hideous Rayon ties were only good for starting fires. We were wrong. Skelton’s process of re-purposing them into colorful wallets looks pretty good and you won’t even have to worry about matching them to your socks. Not that you could anyway…
Does this Gerber multi-tool look like a train to you? Look closely. No? Okay, but it does blast a bright beam of LED light and slim as it is, houses nine other tools like screwdrivers, scissors, a bottle opener and a two-edged blade. The housing is made of anodized aluminum. The Fit will be available February 2011.
