When I travel, I inevitably end up in my hotel room with leftovers I’ve brought back from some restaurant. My intentions are good — I’m trying to not waste food from the meal I had, but 9-times-out-of-10 I don’t have anything to eat the leftovers with. I keep a Full Windsor Muncher Multi-Utensil in my checked luggage now: problem solved.Read More
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.
You don’t have to be a law enforcement officer to shop at 5.11 Tactical, although that is the company’s largest demographic. Many of the items they offer are perfect for other aspects of our lives including camping, hunting, hiking, and even home use. I found the TPT P5 14 Flashlight to be one such item.
Growing up a country boy, I had my fair share of time with a slingshot. From target shooting to things I probably should not shoot, my skill was actually pretty good. A new evolution of those slingshots is now on the market; the Pocket Shot allows users to fire projectiles at up to three times the speed of a slingshot.
If the idea of dropping several hundred dollars on a sports camera doesn’t appeal to you, then you aren’t alone. What if it’s stolen? What if you damage or lose it? How would you like a 4K Ultra HD Video Camera that also snaps crisp 16MP, 12MP, 8MP, 5MP, 2MP images for less than $80?
We’ve reviewed several weather stations in the past, but the BloomSky SKY1 is in a class of its own. Not only does it give you up to the minute weather info from your chosen location, it creates a time-lapse movie of the entire day, and it allows you to share your info and movies easily with others.
