MTM AC4C Ammo Crate 4-Can

Ammo cans are great for storing stuff (not just ammo). Great for the garage, shop, back of the truck or UTV, heck… even handy in the kitchen. The metal ammo cans tend to look a bit too military for some folks, and they tend to rust a bit. Time for an upgrade. Read on for more details… (more…)

This nifty tool is a traditional 16-foot tape measure with a built-in 50-foot laser tape measure. Yep, that is it. No need to read any further. Hey, I said you didn’t have to ready any further. Ok, since you are still here – The General Tools LTM1 sticks with the old-school tape measure for short-span precision measurements. For longer runs you can use the Class II laser (up to 50′)....

The SodaStream has dominated the DIY water carbonation market. They work pretty good, are priced fairly, and make loud embarrassing noises when in use. The perfect addition to any party I suppose. All fine and dandy for the masses, but what if you want something a bit fancier. A bit quieter. Check out the AARKE Premium Carbonator ($169). It is shiny stainless steel (or matte black), has 3 independent safety valves, and includes a nontoxic PET bottle. If nothing else, it looks cool and it is considerably quieter than the SodaStream.   ...

Starting a fire has just gotten easier. The Trailblazer Fire Starter Sticks ($5.99) with Match Heads light like a match and burn like a starter log. These super-matches are made of compressed wood and eliminate the need for starter woods (kindling, garwood, etc…). Each Trailblazer Fire Starter Stick will burn for 7-10 minutes. As far as fire starters go these are pretty eco-friendly as they are made of only compressed wood chips and paraffin wax, no synthetic adhesives, solvents, or other chemicals. ...

Remember the winner of the “most innovative knife” from the 2004 Blade Show? Yeah, me either but this is one cool knife. This knife is quite a conversation starter and even a deal at under $40. Originally designed by Ed Van Hoy as an everyday carry knife with portability and precision in mind. The knife blade swivels out sideways which is very different from most knives. It has an ambidextrous clip, a stainless steel blade, and a special locking mechanism. You know you want it. Get it here.    ...

Construction dudes like coffee, it’s a fact. Not really, but I think the two go hand-in-hand. Now you don’t have to pull your construction truck through the drive-through to get your coffee fix. The Makita CM501D is a coffee maker that is powered by the same rechargeable Li-ion batteries that the Makita power tools use. Genius! the Makita CM501D can make up to 5.3 cups of coffee per charge. ...

Police in China have been using facial recognition glasses for a while now. I know, great news right? As if the censorship, internet traffic spying, and general oppression isn’t enough. To be fair America is tied for second in this race to spy on its own citizens. Not cool. Well, China is doubling down on these facial recognition glasses which must mean that they like the results. The glasses are made by LLVision Technology and are used for things like spotting known criminals, checking travelers registration, vehicle registration...

Shoei Neotec II

If you have ever ridden motorcycles in a group setting you know how fun, and frustrating, it can be. It is fun because you get to share the ride experience with friends and are more visible riding in a group. It is a bit frustrating at times when you are in the middle of the pack and need to stop for a restroom break and have no way of communicating with other riders around you.

One way to solve this is to bolt on a SENA Bluetooth Helmet Headset onto your existing helmet. Not the most elegant helmet addition, but it works. Well the folks at SENA and SHOEI have joined forces for a seamless helmet communication system, the Neotec II Helmet.

SENA’s exclusive SRL Communication System is tailored specifically to the NEOTEC II helmet. When installed, the SRL is virtually undetectable from the outside of the helmet, and functions with a simple 3-button control. Chat with other riders via bluetooth intercom, listen to music, hear turn-by-turn GPS directions, and much more with the SRL. Learn more about the SRL here.

The NEOTEC II is an every-occasion helmet with the adaptability to excel no matter where your next journey takes you. The convenient “flip-up” versatility of a true two-in-one helmet combined with next-level aerodynamics, an internal sun shield, Pinlock® EVO fog-resistant system, and the ability to seamlessly integrate with the all-new SENA SRL (SHOEI Rider Link) Communication System, the NEOTEC II is the pinnacle of modular helmet design for today’s hybrid motorcyclists.

Ever come home from a long days work and just two things come to mind? A  warm shower and a cold beer. This is where the Sudski ($15) comes in. The Sudski is a drink can holder (in most cases for beer) that securely grips to your shower wall surfaces. It even has drainage so it doesn’t become moldy or water filled.    ...

This inexpensive lighter uses a rechargeable battery instead of fuel and a spark instead of a flame. The Tacklife ELY01 will work about 1000 times before needing a recharge and can be charged about 500 times. In other words, it should last a very long time before needing to be retired. The head on Tacklife ELY01 Rechargeable Electric Arc Lighter ($17) is flexible for those tough to reach ignition spots (think bbq grills, gas fireplaces, etc..). Also good for damp and windy conditions as it doesn’t have a flame to blow out. Video...
