YETI is best-known for their insulated coolers and bottles, but they’ve finally gotten into the everyday, lightweight plastic bottle game with the Yonder. This 750-ml bottle is built as tough as any YETI cooler or metal bottle, made using a shatter-resistant, BPA-free plastic that will handle the stresses of an active life without ever showing wear and tear.
The cap is 100% leakproof and features a user-friendly two-part system that makes it easy to drink without spilling and removes any difficulty or mess from the refilling process. Clip it to your backpack or carry it by hand—it’s more than tough enough to keep up with you anywhere you go.
Clark Fork Copper Flask
For those camping, hunting, or snowboarding trips, you’ll want to keep this flask close at hand. It’s built from copper-coated stainless steel, combining durability and eye-catching style into one masterpiece of metalwork.
But then it goes a step farther by wrapping the entire flask in premium Horween leather etched with the brand’s logo and sinew-stitched to ensure it always stays firmly in place. The more you use it, the more the copper and leather will patina, becoming more beautiful with every passing year. Thanks to its six-ounce capacity, you’ve got enough to share with all the fellas. Makes a great gift for a man who enjoys indulging in the finer things.
The Palmer Utility Knife
Here’s a beautifully designed and ultra-portable box cutter. The Palmer is designed to fit comfortably into even small pockets, or you can attach it to your key ring or a lanyard for more convenient carry.
It nestles in the palm of your hand for easier wielding and allows you to extend/retract the blade quickly using just your thumb. The anodized aluminum handle is insanely tough, capable of shrugging off water damage and scuffs.
When the time comes to swap out the blade, you’ll find it’s a no-hassle, tool-free job that takes just a few seconds thanks to the Palmer’s patent-pending mechanism. Best of all, you can swap out the blade for the standard utility blades you can find in any hardware store, so you can travel with the Palmer in your pocket (sans blade) and replace the blade at your destination. Now that’s everyday carry convenience and comfort you can love.
The Torch Flask
When the nights out in the country or the great outdoors turn cold, what do you do? Start a fire and pull out a drink, of course. The Torch Flask is the perfect way to do the latter, offering you 6 ounces of storage capacity for your favorite liquor and an integrated 3-ounce shot glass (attached to the flask lid magnetically) that travels with you everywhere you go. The wide-bottom mouth is wide enough so you can easily pour in your liquor without needing a funnel and can even accommodate ice. It makes cleaning quick and easy.

The front panel folds down so you can see and get at your items in a second, and its flat-bottomed design ensures that it remains standing upright all day long. It’s got structure enough to keep everything organized but can still be squished to fit into any bag or suitcase. Not only is it made with a water-resistant exterior, but it’s backed by a 3-year warranty to ensure it gives you the versatile, durable storage solution you want to keep your travel and work items organized.

This beautiful mixologist barware set will make your next game night or dinner party truly legendary. Every one of its pieces is built specifically for at-home mixologists, using lead-free crystal and ultra-tough, stain-resistant stainless steel.
The double-sided jigger makes it easy to control the amount of liquor you mix into each drink, and the Hawthorne strainer ensures that when you pour your drinks, large chunks of ice stay out of your glasses.
