I didn’t fully appreciate the MagSafe connector on my iPhone 12 until I was sent a collection of Moment MagSafe accessories to try. If you weren’t aware, Moment makes some of the best smartphone photography gear and accessories available. The Moment MagSafe accessories I’ll be telling you about today are great, and I can’t imagine going back to the old system for connecting my iPhone to a tripod, securing it in the car, or attaching cold shoe accessories like a microphone.

When Apple’s new AirTag’s were released, my Tile Trackers became obsolete. Apple’s approach to locating keys and other everyday daily carries is more tightly integrated with iOS in ways Tile can’t match. But Apple offers no way to attach the pricey trackers to your daily carry. The new Nomad Leather Loop for AirTag elegantly solves that problem.
I’ll soon be taking my first trip in almost a year and a half, a quick two-day trip to Los Angeles for a wedding. The quick trip means I don’t need much luggage and, thanks to the TravelPro Platinum Elite Compact Business Plus Carry-On, I’ll be able to carry everything I need. It’s fantastic luggage.
Having a good desk chair was key to surviving months of working from home during the pandemic. Raina and I both use comfortable, ergonomic chairs that have served us well. The NEXVOO NEXCHAIR has a similar design to my current chair, but there’s one big difference. As the company puts it, NEXCHAIR is “the world’s first health monitoring chair.”
Nomad has just introduced a great way to upgrade your desk or nightstand aesthetics. Apple’s MagSafe chargers for iPhones are the simplest and fastest way to charge the device, but they are boring white discs. The Nomad Leather Cover for MagSafe wraps the plastic disc MagSafe charger in Horween leather and, in the process, gives them some style.
We recently brought word about the new Nomad Titanium Band for Apple Watch. I reviewed and love the original Titanium Band and wasn’t sure how they could improve upon it. But this is Nomad we are talking about, and they did indeed improve the band. It is better than ever and, to me, it’s a piece of wearable art.
I wanted to get into home brewing many years ago and received a homebrew kit as a gift; it was a lot more complicated than expected. I was intimidated, and the kit went unused. I was intrigued by the premise behind Brewferm Belgian Craft Brew Starter Kits, however. With their kits, they promise to make home brewing easy.
We recently brought word that Nomad had released three new leather wallets. These include the new Card Wallet, the Card Wallet Plus, and the Bifold. Each is beautiful, and each serves a different approach to “every day carry.” Of the three new wallets, the Nomad Card Wallet Plus sits nicely in the middle and holds “just enough.”
Amazon Prime Day 2021 is about to start, so if you’ve held off buying a new phone, TV, tablet, headphones — or pretty much anything and everything that Amazon sells — you might be in for a surprise when you check prices June 21 and June 22.
“I’d like a shirt made from old soda bottles and coffee grounds,” said no one ever. That is, until Coalatree, purveyors of “Eco-Minded Goods,” created their Switchback Shirt. At $79.99, the Coalatree Switchback Shirt is not inexpensive, but it’s an unusual shirt with a lot going for it. Available in several colors, the Switchback Shirt is currently on sale for just $67.99.
Nomad is on a roll this spring and announcing one new product after another. Today, there are three new premium Nomad leather wallets to look at as well as a brand new product they call “Card for AirTag.” Each wallet has a different card capacity, so there’s sure to be one that’s just right for you. Card for AirTag then takes them to the next level.
During the pandemic, Raina and I knew we needed to spend more time outside. We began hiking on the reservation near our home with our mini golden doodle Nava. The first few times, we didn’t have the right gear; now we do. Here’s a look at the hiking gear that we’ve come to depend on.
When we first met Nomad, they were a startup with one cool but simple accessory for the iPhone. In the years since, their catalog has grown exponentially and, with it, our appreciation of their design sense and commitment to creating quality products. Their newest offerings include a Moment Rugged Case for the iPhone 12 Series and Rugged Cases for the Pixel Buds A-Series.
When Apple removed the 3.5mm headphone jack from their mobile devices, we saw explosive growth in the wireless headphone market. Sadly, it was also another step toward prioritizing convenience over audio quality. As we have seen, some wireless headphones deliver exceptional sound but, there are times when you want the BEST sound. That’s where the Periodic Audio Rhodium DAC comes in.
I’ve become a huge fan of Rockport’s shoes. Both the Total Motion Active Mesh Sneaker and the Men’s Total Motion DresSport Slip-Ons look great and are amazingly comfortable. I’ll be adding dress shoes shortly. If you want to try out some Rockport’s, you’re in luck! The company is offering huge savings this weekend on a wide assortment of shoes.
A colleague recently described her love/hate relationship with Chromebooks to me. She loves that they have allowed her daughter to continue her studies during lockdown but hates the fact that they’re so cheap they’ve gone through three just this year. That wouldn’t be the case if she had a 13″ Lenovo ThinkPad C13 Yoga Chromebook 2-in-1 Laptop. It’s rock-solid!
I spent over a year wearing my UGG slippers all day, every day. They were great as part of my lockdown wardrobe but, now that I’m doing more and more outside of my house, I need nicer shoes. The Rockport Men’s Total Motion DresSport Slip-Ons are dressy enough for any occasion, yet they are almost as comfortable as my well-worn slippers.
The WaterField Hip Sling Bag Collection is yet another product designed based upon input from customers. This “community-designed” collection is perfect now that the summer heat has arrived. Available in two sizes, it can be used as either a hip bag or as a sling bag. I don’t see using it as a hip bag (AKA fanny pack), but I do love a good sling.
I’m back to wearing my Apple Watch daily; most days, it is sporting either the Nomad Titanium band I reviewed some time ago or the Nomad Active Strap Pro I recently reviewed. Adding to their Apple Watch band options, Nomad has just announced a new line of Steel and Titanium bands; they look great, and I can’t wait to try them!
Leave it to Apple to release a $29 tracker accessory with no native way to affix it to the item you want to track. For that, you need to spend at least $29 more on Apple’s AirTag Loop. And while the Loop holds the AirTag, it does nothing to protect it. Thankfully, there is now a line of Nomad AirTag Accessories.
Staying hydrated is one of the most important things you can do to get the most from summer; trust me, I’ve had a few encounters with dehydration. MyBevi offers a range of quality double-walled vacuum insulated stainless steel water bottles and canteens at excellent prices.
