Buying a water-housing for your SLR camera will cost you some serious coin and chances are pretty good that the camera in your iPhone 4 or 4S shoots a comparable quality image. Therefore, the Tat7 waterproof case is a brilliant idea. It costs a lot less than a big, bulky housing and is scuba-worthy down to depths of 100 feet. You can even use SIRI on your 4S for texting and messaging without taking it out of the case.
If you carry all your most-used tools around in a tool belt you’ll look like the Construction Worker from the Village People. ’Stache or not, this isn’t something you want. Fiskars Shop Boss Snip combines a serrated blade, beer opener, wire stripper, and file for a tool that’ll do lots of tough household jobs without making you into a macho man.
Just because you’re out on a camping trip doesn’t mean you have to dine like a caveman or Cub Scout. There are plenty of alternatives to campfire-ash-crusted wieners and beans from the can. Coleman’s Outdoor Portable Oven is a propane powered two-burner stove that also has an oven large enough to cook a 12-inch pizza. Just the thing for keeping it gourmet in the great outdoors
Unless you’re an ex-Boy Scout, tying any knot other than your shoelace is way too complicated. This new device relieves of this task when you’re strapping down cargo on your rooftop or trailer, or any other place you use tie-down straps. And after all, if you could tie a knot you’d just use rope instead of straps and tie-downs, right? The Strap-Loc device keeps the excess and loose ends of the strap from flapping in the breeze. Nice and neat.
Spending hours trapped in an office staring at a screen can cause anyone to crack. But before you blow your stack completely, take a break. Pull your RC attack helicopter out of the drawer and run a few sorties in the airspace above your desk. The Helo TC Assault is a stable, easy to fly chopper that uses your smart device for a remote and has a pair missiles you can fire at yourself or coworkers.
Who couldn’t use a bit more outdoor storage? A place to keep the patio chairs dry or keep the bikes from getting rusty? The YardStash is basically a heavy duty, easy-to-erect weatherproof tent for your junk.
GPS-enabled map in your iPhone? Pffft. The real “urban woodsman” uses a compass. With the Brass Stow Away Capsule, he’s also got a waterproof match safe in case he gets off course and needs to build a fire while waiting for his girlfriend to pick him up and drive him safely back to Brooklyn.
These knives are made entirely of carbon fiber. That means they’re super lightweight, each of the three models weighing in at less than one ounce. The thing is, carbon fiber isn’t something that holds a sharp blade. Carbon Fiber Gear offers these knives not for cutting but rather self-defense. They’re for stabbing. Puncturing. Immobilizing the enemy. Kinda hellish, sure, but as the saying goes, “better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.”
Rumor has it these photo-video-lighting clamps got their name from their numerous uses on the set of adult film productions. Okay, that’s a lie. Anyway, Nasty Clamps are heavy-duty spring clamps with a Gorilla-pod style arm on them, which has a tripod mount on the end. Snap a Nasty on and you can put your camera, LED light bank, or flash, pretty much anywhere you want. Source
