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.”
Tote one of these fold-away, stainless charcoal grills from Esbit and you’ll never have to hang out in some sketchy public park trying to get your fresh grilled burger on when you’re away on a roadtrip.

Wenger, makers of genuine Swiss Army knives for over 100 years has introduced a new line of precision multi-purpose tools and blades. Their HypeX Pendants are survival tools you can wear. There’s a handful of different models in this line of lightweight “toolery”, & they’re all designed for action. We’re not sure who’s really going to need a flint and a knife sharpener hanging from their neck, but the Wyss model features a bottle opener & that’s one tool that always makes sense. Available June 2012.
The Zooka wireless Bluetooth speaker bar is designed to work best with your iPad but it’ll also fit on your iPhone or laptop, too. Made of soft medical-grade silicone, it slides right into place on your device & gives a substantial upgrade to the sound.

The Cinch is better than the standard SLR camera strap for two reasons. It features quick-adjusting pull tabs that let you crank it down tight or loosen it up to get the shot with one easy pull of the strap. The other improvement is that instead of using your camera’s two top strap mounting brackets, the Cinch mounts to only one and the other connector goes though the tripod mount which keeps the camera in a more natural and easier-to-carry position against your body. If you tote a big, heavy camera around, you’ll want this.
Gerber is taking the multi-tool into new territory with the Steady.

Now, the slim, classic silhouette is back again in a nylon fabrication and a whole rainbow of colorways. Go get some. Source
