In the old days, hardcore outdoor guys would just pack a pinch of coffee grinds like a dip and hit the trail. Times have changed. Now you can bring a pocket-size titanium French bistro with you on your day hike. The Café Luxe kit includes a French press, a milk foamer, stacking mugs, and a wood cutting board that hides a stainless steel knife.
There’s no such thing as brand loyalty these days. As soon as something better comes along, we migrate. So, considering the Edge Sound portable speaker system pumps 10 more decibels than the popular Jambox with a pricetag that is 30-bucks less, it seems like an easy choice to make.
A bad swing that results in snapping the head off a driver is a golf tradition as old as the game itself. Now these casualties of the game come back to life at the 19th hole. Handmade from real vintage clubs, each bottle opener is one-of-a-kind.

If these wooden wallets kind of remind you of that wooden one-hitter called a Dugout, you’re not alone. But instead of a brass bat and some heady nugs, these are made for carrying cards and cash. Made from a single piece of maple or walnut, they hold up to 8 credit cards and feature a leather strap magnetic closure.
So it looks like some sort of luxury life raft and in a way it is. If you live to barbecue. It’s a real boat with a built-in BBQ designed for dining with up to 10 adults and powered by an electric motor. The threat of having to swim ashore will keep your dinner guests on their best behavior during your cruise.
You said farewell to cash long ago & with the release of the Geode digital wallet for iPhone, you can say goodbye to cards, too. The device stores credit and debit card info, converting it into a code that can be read by any electronic point of sale system.
