Go On A Pocket Diet With The ZerOz Minimalist Wallet

Confession time: my wallet is horribly obese. Unfortunately, it isn’t overstuffed with cash. No, no, no. More like business cards, 40 coffee rewards cards, each with one stamp each, and then the license/social/health insurance jazz. (No cash.) Well, this week I had the opportunity to go on a pocket diet with the ZerOz Minimalist Wallet. The company sent me two ultra lightweight versions to try out: the IPA and the Sedona. Preferring a richer brown color to the flashier brightness of the Sedona, I went with the IPA, though it’s worth noting here that in terms of function and quality, Read More

Artya Son Of Sound: A Watch That Truly Rocks

You don’t have to rock to wear a watch that does. The ArtyA Son of Sound features the first watch case shaped like a guitar. On the case glass, it features metal designs resembling two violin-style “F” holes (like jazz guitars have) and four strings. The case is pointed at the top and bottom and curves inward on the sides, each of which has two adjustment crowns resembling a guitar’s tuning knobs. The 42-mm-wide case made of either steel, PVD black steel, titanium, or 18-karat Rose gold maintains a clean look beneath its glass. It has an hour- and minute-hand, Read More

Men’s Iron Barn Nail Urban Cuff

Russell Brand would probably wear it. This Steampunk-gone-backwoods urban cuff manages to create classic style with a flair. Designed by the renowned Anvils & Alchemy shop on Etsy, this accessory features a hand-forged antique barn nail on an up-cycled leather belt. As of this writing, artist Angie Lawlar is offering 15 of these hand-crafted pieces. Although the type of leather is the same, its color varies a bit from cuff to cuff since Lawlar does not have a single source for it. This, however, makes each piece truly unique. The band varies in width from 1/2-2 inches, and the 4-inch Read More

Articulate Wallet 2.0 Fights The RFID Boogeyman

RFID, which stands for either Really Freakin’ Annoying, Dude or Radio Frequency Identification, is the technology that causes everyone who walks in or out of large chain stores to set off beepers for no reason and then just keep walking. Because credit cards have RFID strips in them, they’re vulnerable to having their info swiped for identity theft purposes.  This means that RFID blocking wallets were a nearly inevitable response.  A couple of entrepreneurs came out with the Articulate Wallet a few years back and began seeking funding via Kickstarter, etc.  Now, they unveil the 2.0 version. In addition to Read More

Rip Clips

Guys can be pretty reckless when it comes to their pants, and pretty lazy when it comes to fixing them. The idea of breaking out needle and thread is lost on us, and with the wives and girlfriends working just as much as we do outside the home, they often don’t feel like doing it for us. Until recently, we had to pay to have pants altered, but who needs that noise? Thankfully, Rip Clips have come along to change the game. This is the world’s first pant length alterations system that doesn’t involve needle and thread. It binds together Read More

Shred Your Cards With Coin

The unchanged-for-decades credit card is about to be a thing of the past. You know it. We know it. But what’s going to replace it? That’s the real question. We’ve had a few different contenders over the last few years. Google Wallet. The iCache Digital Wallet. The Loop Fob and Chargecase. Last week, Coin entered the mix, and it may be the best one yet. Coin works with a similar concept as the ill-fated iCache, which required the cardholder to swipe their cards into a smartphone app. From there, the app would (theoretically) communicate to the “Geode card” — a Read More

Garmin’s Tactix GPS Navigator Is Rambo For Your Wrist

In the 1980s, every kid in America watched in admiration as Sly Stallone outwitted Sheriff Teasle and his army of incompetent police officers during the original First Blood. The movie was a cat-and-mouse game of one man-versus-the system, and it gave the distinct impression that John Rambo could be dropped off anywhere in the untamed world with a knife and a compass and TCB his way back to civilization. He was a real man’s man and one of the only R-rated characters to ever get his own Saturday morning cartoon. While the vast majority of us have never been able Read More
