Probably the most versatile smartphone car mount we have seen, the iStabilizer Glass grabs hold of your windshield with its strong suction cup and then grabs your smartphone with its unique device holder.

True story. I was officiating a lifecycle event earlier this week and one of the key family members had a bag from Gear Diary advertiser Skooba Design. Without revealing my familiarity with the company and its products I asked what he thought about the bag. From the way he spoke about it you would have through his family member owned the company (they don’t). Yes, he likes the bag that much.
Skooba Design does make some amazing bags. They make great gear accessories too and the $16.95 Cable Stable is one such item. It may seem like a strange gift to give but once the recipient starts using it they will thank you!. Check out all of Skooba’s products here.
