For the iPhone folks amongst us. Quit being so cheap and buy the highest capacity. People still buy the lowest memory iPhone install a bunch of apps, take a bunch of pictures/videos… and then wonder why they are out of space. Ok, I got that out of the way. Back to reality. SanDisk has a new product that is pretty darn cool. The SanDisk iXpand Memory Case which can add up to an additional 128GB...

If you spend much time being active around the water, you most likely have a rashguard shirt or two. The traditional rashguard does a good job at wicking away sweat but fails when really wet. In other words if you wear it in the water you end up with a shirt that is soggy, heavy, wet, and clings to your body. Not cool. Things just changed with the Victory KoreDry clothing line (hoodies, shirts, neoprene, etc..) which acts like a hydrophobic layer repelling the water. Additionally they are produced in the US (Huntington Beach, CA) and...

I am not even that big of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan but I really like these Dr. Martens boots. They come in the obvious characters, Donatello, Leonardo, and Michelangelo and are available in sizes from child to adult. The Donnie 8 Eye Boot draws from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles artwork. Donatello has two different expressions on each toe, a purple lace accessory face mask and cartoon turtle shell patterning on the quarters. The character’s initial is on the right heel and the TMNT logo on the left heel Reflective...

Never take pressurized water for granted. It is glorious. Imagine taking a shower or washing your car without pressurized water. Not fun. With that said, there are plenty of places where we don’t have access to a good stream of water. Like camping in a remote location, the beach after surfing, the park to wash off your muddy dog, or on the far side of the farm. The solution? The RinseKit Portable Sprayer ($160) solves this problem. It provides 2 gallons of water at up to 65psi. You can fill it with hot or cold water and enjoy continuous...

Same goes for a camp chair. Well, the Stalwart folding stool and backpack combo ($28) might help with the chair portion of the problem. The Stalwart Chair Backpack starts off as a pretty standard backpack with...
