If you are like us, your dryer has an appetite for gobbling up one of your socks on a weekly basis. With so many un-matched socks, it’s tough to look fresh. Enter one of the newest Kickstarter projects: Nice Laundry ($34+). These colorful designer socks come in packs of six, and are easy on the wallet at around $6 per pair. And forget scrutinizing over which colors look best in your sock drawer, Nice Laundry has prepared six different combination packs to suit every type of man (we personally like the “Chief” pack shown above).
Are you tired of misplacing your keys and the remote? The Stick-N-Find Radar ($70) is the finest solution to one of man’s most common aggravations that we have seen. Simply place the button (roughly the size of a quarter) on the device you keep losing, download the phone App, and the next time your keys go missing, just pull up the radar and you can guess the rest.
Known as the “Marty McFly” shoe, the 2011 Nike Air Mag ($TBA) is exactly what every BTTF fan needs. We know its been a couple of years since their release, but these limited run sneakers were definitely worth a mention. Designed as an exact replica of the shoes seen in the second edition of Back to the Future, these kicks are the first rechargeable shoe that Nike has released. Now if only they could figure out the auto-lacing feature…
When you haven’t yet taught your dog to drink from a water bottle, giving him water while taking a walk is a bit of a chore unless you have a RuffBowl ($8). This portable plastic dog bowl snaps onto your regular FexiLeash and it is easily the most convenient way to keep your pup hydrated as you traverse the treacherous sidewalks of subrbia.
If you have ever tried to carry around your phone cord in your pocket, you know it is about as awkward as it gets. The AViiQ Ready Clip ($16) has taken your average phone cord and reduced it to the size of a pen, with the same amount of portability. USB on one side, phone jack on the other, this cord/clip is one of the easiest ways we have found to keep your devices connected.
If you are unwilling to let anything but the finest lamb skin touch your ears, then look no further than the Aedle VK-1 Headphones ($325+). Finally, a pair of gorgeous headphones to rival Beats by Dr. Dre and anything Apple has ever made. After two years of design, these headphones are borderline works of art with genuine lambskin leather cushions and aircraft grade aluminum on the cups. Oh yeah, and they sound amazing too.
Sometimes you need a camera bag, sometimes you need a cooler. With the Camera Cooler Bag ($65) from Photojojo, you can have both. Big enough to hold a DSLR and two lenses, or a six-pack of beer, it comes with a removable divider to keep your camera gear unharmed, and the insulated walls will keep your beer/snacks chilled all day long.
When your grill surface is big enough to roast an entire cow, you will need the Texas Grill Brush ($50) to get that grill gunk out of those back corners. With a 4-foot handle, black steel and course bristles, this is about as heavy-duty as grill brushes get. They will even iron-brand your name on the handle, just so everyone on the block knows who has the big stick in the neighborhood.
Some would argue that a growler full of delicious suds is just as precious as a newborn. If this sounds like your position on home-brew, then you need the Growler on Board ($30) Beer Transfer Unit (BTU). Forget about laying your growlers on the back seat (or even worse, your trunk!), this BTU holds standard 1/2 gallon growlers, as well as 2L swing top style growlers with handles. Made from low density foam, your growlers will enjoy the smoothest clink-free ride they have ever experienced.
Want your own personal cloud? Get the LaCie 3TB CloudBox ($170). Plug it in, one-click, and you can access your files from any location with any device. Think of it like a super hard-drive that acts like your own personal DropBox. We are pretty sure the future includes things like the LaCie CloudBox.
