Camelbak recently came out with their new Groove 0.6L water bottle, for on-the-go water filtration. Tap water goes in, cleaner filtered water comes out. The Groove is made from Tritan a durable BPA-free plastic, and has a BPA-free cap and straw with silicone bite valce.
I’m in need of a small watering can for indoor use, but finding one of a suitable size locally has proved to be quite difficult in the dead of winter. These Oxo Good Grip “Pour & Store” watering cans seem to be decent enough – they’re simple, compact, and look nice & tidy. The 1-quart model is […]
Sticky Ass Glue is a waterproof moisture-cure polyurethane adhesive that looks to have few limitations. From the technical details, it appears that the glue is as stubbornly strong as the “Ass” part of its name suggests. SAG’s development story is actually a pretty interesting one: four fathers ran into trouble with a backyard playset assembly and were disappointed with […]
That’s right, I keep an avalanche shovel in my car. More specifically, it’s a Voile Telepro T6. You see, I have a habit of breaking the plastic “emergency collapsible snow shovels” marketed by auto accessory makers. The last thing I want to hear when digging out my car when I’m on the go is “SNAP”.
The Timbuk2 “Racing Stripe” messenger bag that I ordered and posted about last month has dropped in price again to $50. I’m really liking this bag thus far, although it’s sometimes a bit too large for my needs. The price was right – I paid $55, compared to the $100-120 Timbuk2 charges for their other […]
Winter time is fast approaching, so it’s about time to check out your car snow-clearing gear. Inspect your ice scraper blade for dings and dents, and your brush for signs of wear and tear. The last thing you want is to have to buy a new snow brush after the first or second big snow. In the past […]

Even with optical and image stabilization capabilities built into compact digital point & shoot cameras and many SLR lenses these days, there are times when it just isn’t enough. Can you hand-hold a P&S camera – or any camera for that matter, stead for 5 seconds as you try to photograph fireworks? I don’t think so. When travelling, […]
I’ve been wanting to buy a Timbuk2 messenger bag for the longest time. I didn’t really need one, but I wanted one. They look good, they’re spacious, they’re typically very well made, and the straps look oh so comfy. Timbuk2’s custom Build Your Own bags and some if not all of their special editions bags are […]
Over at Amazon, they’re slashing prices on Canon cameras like it’s nobody’s business. A little while ago I saw a price-drop on the Canon S95 from $400 to $386. Now, it looks like there’s an additional $50 coupon as well. Then, for kicks I checked out the 60D dSLR that I ordered earlier, and there was […]
