A few months ago, I was out riding my electric bike. My iPhone was in a cradle attached to the bicycle; after hitting a bump, it went flying. Thankfully, my phone was in a Nomad Sport Case, and it was fine. Needless to say, when my new iPhone arrived, it went right into a Nomad case; as you’ll see, there are some great Nomad iPhone 14 cases from which to choose.

LIVSN Designs is a relatively small company, but their products are great, and I’ve become a huge fan. I reviewed their Flex Canvas Pants and Flex Canvas Shorts, and they have become two of my favorite garments. They are tough, comfortable and, I think, look great. Now, the LIVSN Designs Reflex Shorts have also earned a place in my closet.
I carry a WaterField bag, backpack, or pouch every day; that’s no exaggeration. Lately, I’ve been using the Sutter Slim Backpack I recently reviewed or, when traveling, the Air Porter Carry-On Bag. The company recently sent me their new WaterField Essential Crossbody Pouch to check out; it’s a nice addition to my WaterField kit and fills a fairly specific need.
Fall is on the way, and that means jacket time arrives soon. I’ve had a well-loved leather jacket Judie bought me as a gift, but when Angel Jackets reached out and offered a review sample of their dark brown men’s leather car coat, I jumped. Even so, I couldn’t help but wonder how nice a <$300 leather jacket could possibly be, especially when it is currently selling for just $199. The answer is, “Very nice!”
Lenovo has done some great stuff when it comes to taking tablets to the next level; the new Lenovo Tab P11 (2nd Gen) and its elevated cousin, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro (2nd Gen), promise to continue that trend.
Last February, I reviewed Nomad’s foray into the analog space with its Nomad Pen. It’s a beautiful, well-balanced pen that is 134.5mm long. 9.8mm thick, weighs 32g, and is made from high-quality aluminum and stainless steel. At $49.95, it is an affordable piece of daily-use luxury. Now Nomad has upped their game and introduced the Nomad Pen in Titanium.
A few years ago, I reviewed a budget-friendly phone from Huawei’s sub-brand, the Honor View10. I loved it, and while Honor was meant to be a lower-priced option than Huawei, I didn’t find the phone lacking in the least; it looked, felt, and functioned beautifully. Honor is now a standalone company, completely separate from Huawei, and they’ve released the Honor Magic4 Pro. It’s a big deal, and we’ll talk about why in this review.
As fall approaches, more and more people are returning to in-person work. But the pandemic has changed life forever, and Zoom calls are here to stay. A light, comfortable and effective headset like the Jabra Engage 75 is key to working efficiently.
A few years ago, I backed a Kickstarter project that was a photography grip for the iPhone. With the phone in the grip, using the iPhone felt more like using a DSLR. Now, thanks to the iPhone’s MagSafe, connecting a grip to the iPhone is easier than ever, and the ShiftCam SnapGrip Creator Kit takes full advantage of it. The kit includes the SnapGrip, SnapPod, and SnapLight; let’s take a look.
The Shell Ride SR-5S Electric Scooter is a light, affordable standing scooter that can go up to 20 miles per hour with a range of up to twenty miles per charge. It looks great, rides well, and can be found for as little as $499.99, making it a bargain if you are looking for inexpensive, fun, electric transportation.
The Nomad Base One Max wireless charger for iPhone and Apple Watch sits by my bedside. Their smaller Base One iPhone charger sits next to my reaching chair in the living room. Now, for a limited time, they are available in an elegant gold finish; here’s why you’ll want one.
The Scosche BoomCan MS is a powerful Bluetooth speaker designed specifically to work with Apple’s MagSafe, but it also works fine with any Bluetooth-enabled device. As small as it is, the 3W BoomCanMS delivers bigger sound than your phone’s speaker can; it’s also small enough to go anywhere and doubles as a phone kickstand. Is Scosche on to something here?
It seems as if every device accessory manufacturer has gotten into the wall or car charger market. Scosche certainly has a wide range of offerings. One of their newest, the Scosche PowerVolt Traveler30, does something few if any, other chargers can. It’s both a wall and a car charger; that makes the $44.99 accessory an ideal travel charger.
The new Master & Dynamic MW75 over-the-ear wireless headphones with active noise cancellation were recently introduced. The follow-up to the company’s impressive MW65, this latest offering builds on their years of experience and reflects Master & Dynamic’s growth since their first headphones launched in 2014. The MW75 are impressive, but are they worth the $599 price tag?
As we come to the second half of the summer, it’s more important than ever to do everything possible to relax. After all, winter will be here before we know it. For ultimate comfort when hanging out, you definitely want to take a look at the Olivers Classic Sweatshorts; they are super comfy and tough as nails.
As gas hit prices few have ever experienced in America this past spring, I decided to start riding my bicycle to work. I quickly discovered that I needed a backpack small enough to wear on a bike comfortably but large enough to carry all of my day’s gear. Enter the WaterField Sutter Slim Laptop Backpack; it’s perfect for my needs.
People are traveling for work once again. Fortunately, more thin, light, powerful laptops are available than ever before. Unfortunately, most of those laptops fall short in the port department, and I’m not just speaking only about Macs! That’s where the IOGEAR Dock Pro 6-in-1 4K Dock Stand comes in; it’s light and portable and adds some important ports for on-the-go computing.
For years, I never paid over $15 for a t-shirt. But, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. So I started spending more on merino wool t-shirts, and I have no regrets. My newest, the Olivers Convoy Tee, may be pricey at $88, but it is actually a decent value. Let me explain why.
When I started wearing clothes made from merino wool, it was all about the base layers. In recent months, I’ve come to appreciate that some companies are also using merino wool for more traditional clothing; the Isobaa Mens Merino 200 Long Sleeve Polo Shirt is a prime example.
I’m still slightly surprised that more people don’t understand and appreciate that merino wool clothing isn’t just for winter. Merino t-shirts are great all year long, merino boxers provide four seasons of comfort, and the Isobaa Merino Blend 200 PJ Shorts are great for summer lounging and sleep. They’re pricy but oh so comfy.
The Swagtron EB11 Electric Cruiser Bicycle is a beach cruiser-style bike with a 250W electric motor to assist you on your journeys. While it has an MSRP of $1511, it is currently on sale for just $799.99. That makes it an absolute bargain. It is a good eBike but, as we will see, it is far from perfect.
