Long, stressful days on the job make you want to turn your brain off at night and chill. No more thinking. Just loafing. For those nights, you need a certain type of movie.

The story of a regular dude who just wants to hang at his local bar unbothered and then zombies try to ruin it.
Two reasons why a leather jacket for your whiskey bottle is a great idea: the bottle might survive a drop that would destroy your iPhone. And lets face it, the contents of the bottle are way more valuable than the phone. The second reason, your old lady won’t know how much of “Daddy’s Little Helper” you’ve consumed, since the bottle is holstered in rich, vegetable tanned leather. It also mounts to your belt for easy access at parent-teacher meetings, golf, romantic walks, etc.

Like everyone, we’re still waiting to find out when Sony’s PS Vita will hit stores.

Sony has been bragging for months about the touch interactivity & motion that supposedly smokes the 3DS. When the release date is announced, we’ll be camped out in line at the big box store. See you there.
Mosh? Maybe in his Pearl Jam days, but has Eddie Vedder ever made you want to hula? Probably not. And he won’t on this new solo record of, as the name suggests, ukulele songs. This material puts Vedder’s familiar heartfelt lyricism to the rustic twang of a ukulele. Yeah, Eddie surfs, but this ain’t beach music.
These days, wearing a watch has nothing to do with telling the time. Everyone has a phone or computer staring back at them for that info. Wearing a watch is purely symbolic. March Lab has been producing ‘Swiss Made’ watches since before the cellphone took over time and they’ll keep making them, like the JC-1 Shadowplay. Simple, refined and elegant. And, it will never ring in the middle of dinner.
Dad taught you to throw a spiral. Coach taught you to respect the game. Now, you’re teaching your friends how to tailgate like real men. To keep it all going, you need a Leather Head football. This classic football is made of 100% real leather tanned & dyed to bring out the unique tones of the hide. You don’t grill Tofu Dogs on game day…so why would you toss around a rubber ball?

But it’s not. Just try to remember … it’s just a movie.
The city of San Francisco is pretty close to the mountains. This is great for upstart backpack brand Boreas. It means easy access for R&D test missions. Their burly, but minimalist, packs come in a whole slew of sizes. From an ultralight trail-runner/day-hike size all the way up to a 60-liter weekender with bad-ass suspension.
