Nature has a funny way of sneaking up on people. A flower that seemed it wouldn’t flourish for weeks suddenly blooms in all its glory only a couple of days later. Nature enthusiasts know this phenomenon well, and many of them wish it were possible to record plant and flower growth as it happens, thereby never missing out on natural…Read More
We are in grilling, swimming, and outside season. Never miss a game during a BBQ or neglect to watch a movie under the stars with SunBriteTV, the outdoor television. SunBriteTV is made to handle outdoor use and offers three levels of protection which can fit anyone’s needs and price range.
BBQ season is once again upon us. School is out for the summer here in South Texas, and the grills have already been fired up. As you know, the most important part of a successful BBQ is the coals. The Chimney of Insanity by BBQ Dragon ($29.95) helps make the charcoal perfect, quickly and without the need for lighter fluid.
I have often found myself guilty of being “penny-wise and pound-foolish,” that is, in order to save a buck here and there, I’ve put something much more expensive at risk. An example of this has been the way that I secure my road bike when I park it outdoors either at home or downtown when I’m running an errand.
I spend a lot of time out and about whether travelling for games or out in the woods. Keeping drinks warm or cold is always an issue. A small ice chest is not always in the cards, so I usually turn to high quality drink ware. The Pelican TRAVBO32 bottle ($39.99) has proven its worth in my recent tests.
My wife always jokes that anytime someone wants to get me something, they cannot go wrong with either a flashlight or pocket knife. This is true; I absolutely love really bright, tactical flashlights. The ThruNite TN12 ($49.95) brings a strong, tactical design along with a super bright 1100 lumen Cree LED light. Let’s take a closer look!
I love being barefoot. I work out barefoot, and in the spring and fall I wear Vibram FiveFingers when I need shoes and flip-flops in the summertime. While being barefoot is free, minimal shoes tend to be really, really expensive, as well as really polarizing in appearance. Fitkicks Shoes handily solves one of these issues!
Scosche is expanding into the outdoor market with the Powersports line of products. The first two entries are mounts aimed at the motorcycle and UTV/ATV segments. The MagicMount Handlebar and Heavy Duty Universal Fire Extinguisher/Boom Bottle Mounts will bring the same high quality and rugged design as all of Scosche’s products.
It appears that wearables aren’t as dead as suspected. That, or companies still had product in the pipeline and figured they would go ahead and release them anyway. In any case, Garmin, Casio, and Intel/New Balance have all thrown their hats into the tracking ring (wrist?)!
If you’ve ever gone outside to grab a couple of logs for the fireplace at night, then you know it’s not practical to bring along a flashlight unless you have a third arm. Outside of a superhero-grade nuclear spill, your best chance for gaining spare appendages is to use your head — wear a Maxxeon WorkStar 620 Technician’s Rechargeable Hands-Free Headlamp.
We have all seen the Facebook and YouTube 360 degree videos that work great with VR goggles or using your phone to explore. I have often wondered how to make those. The Monster Digital Vision VR ($379.99) allows users to create 360-degree virtual memories to share with friends and family. It is even easy to share the videos from your phone.
Alpine Electronics of America, Inc., has expanded their traditional fleet of vehicle infotainment systems to announce they will go portable with a premium portable cooler with a built-in sound system.
I love being in the outdoors whether it is camping, hunting or both. Temporarily living off the land is great fun but I do always stay connected with my phone. Not only do I have to plan on how to cook, but also how to charge. The BioLite CampStove Bundle ($199.95) allows users to cook and create power to charge.
