Gear and gadgets from smartphones to backpacks
  • A couple years ago the founder of Standard Luggage reached out to me with a great product they had just launched. As a fan of travel backpacks I agreed to give it a review, but now they've come back with an incredible updated version that is honestly my "go to" bag for short 2-3 day trips. Since I started testing it last fall, this bag has been with me to on more than a dozen excursions ranging from overnight road trips to quick flights across country. It is quite frankly the perfect bag for any busy guy that loves to travel.

  • I get a lot of pitches for earphones and there is quite literally a box under my desk with the discarded samples that I offer to friends with they come over. These new ones from Phiaton though have earned a spot on my desk and especially when I'm on the go. Simply put, they sound great, are comfortable in my ear, light enough that they don't feel awkward on my neck and with the active noise canceling I can quite literally turn off distracting noises around me.

  • These days, most of us rely on our phones to some extent. It’s just part of modern life. It can be a big expense if you approach it in the wrong way though. Too many people spend far more than they should on things like their phone contract and everything else associated with their smartphone, but it shouldn’t be that way. Just because you need your phone, that doesn’t mean you should accept spending more than you have to on it.

  • Generally when you shop for a new computer it's just like buying a car... there's the practical side of your brand that say you just need something to get you to work and back... but then there's the fun side that says, "but I want to feel good doing it!" That's what I love about this Legion Y530 laptop that Lenovo sent me to check out as part of our holiday gifts for guys. I'll admit, I'm not a seasoned tech reviewer and despite my previous life being a hardcore gamer - those days were years behind me. Until this week anyhow when I was "forced" to test this laptop out... for research purposes of course. 

  • We don't endorse drinking and skiing any more than we would drinking and driving. However, sometimes a run is so great, the powder is so amazing, or the view is so incredible that it deserves to be toasted. Unfortunately though, as anyone who skis knows, alcohol prices are ridiculous at ski resorts and even then, you might not have a vendor at the summit. Since a traditional flask is bulky and glass breaks... what's a guy to do? That's where WhiSki Poles comes in and it can hold up to 8 oz of liquid inside an otherwise standard aircraft grade aluminum ski pole! 

  • I love smart watches but like the early days of hybrid cars - the design is meant to appeal to "tech people" and not those that just want a good looking watch. Over the past few years though, there have been hundreds - maybe even thousands - of watch faces released for Google's Wear OS. As beautiful as those are and with the improvements in screen technology making them look more realistic every year... it's still no replacement for mechanical movement and physical hands. That's what LG's designers believed when they created this watch and I'm fundamentally in agreement with them. A true chronograph with mechanical movement is a work of art that makes a "tool" a fashion accessory that makes a statement when worn on a man's wrist.

  • Gadgets have become apart of modern life in a way that few people could have accurately predicted just a few decades ago. Whether we are at home or out and about, there is some form of technology that has been designed to assist or entertain us. Here we are going to discuss some of those pieces of tech based on their role in certain environments.

  • We're notoriously hard to shop for - or so the women in our lives tell us. That doesn't have to be true this year though! Just show them this post about gifts for guys or even better send them over to UncommonGoods where there are tons of awesome gifts that every guy will love. (Who knows - she might just find something there she likes too!). Really though, we aren't that complicated - Beer Gifts, Whiskey Gifts, Sports Gifts, Auto Gifts, and Geeky Toys  that's what we are looking for and you can be pretty safe picking a present for us from any of those categories. Luckily - UncommonGoods has tons of awesome gift ideas from each of those categories.

  • Looking for some fun stocking stuffer gifts for guys? I'm talking about going beyond the simple candy and lottery ticket ideas and instead picking some cheap fun gift items that guys will love. Let's take a look at some of our favorites...

  • When it comes to buying gifts, we often forget about making sure we look and feel good too. The folks over at BabbleBoxx.com sent us some great items to help guys look great while not spending a ton of money doing so. Products included here include selections from: ZENNI Optical, Ties.com, Dr Scholl's, Beau Brummell, and because earbuds and headphones are sooooo last year, a super cool item from the folks at AfterShokz.
  • Sure, you can connect your Xbox to pretty much any old TV and start playing... but what's the fun in that? There are so many awesome gaming accessories now that the hardcore gamer has so many options to customize their experience. Here's a few of our favorite products for guys who love video games!

  • For those with trucks, tailgate parties and trail lunches are easy... in fact, the entire act of tailgating sorta implies that you have a tailgate. What if you have an SUV or a car though? Setting stuff up in the trunk just isn't the same and that means you have to bring a big bulky table with you. Luckily, I've found a solution!

  • Right now is a great time to upgrade your entertainment center. With the holidays coming up, football games, hockey, basketball and of course all those awesome new video games coming out. Your living room is going to be getting a workout and so it your TV. For me, over the past few years I've had the same entertainment center that I did when I had a 24" then a 27" and now a 42" TV so I was totally due for an upgrade. Plus this new entertainment center has tons more space for stuff like DVDs, books, and even shelf speakers so that's a big plus too. 

  • Years ago, I bought a new car at the dealership and they suckered me into buying their “protective coating” that would help the car stay clean and help protect from nicks and scratches. That coating cost me hundreds of dollars and frankly … I’m not sure it did anything. Flash forward a few years and the folks at AvalonKing sent me their Armor Shield IX DIY Kit to try out. For under $100, this is a great solution for anyone looking to keep their car looking like new.

  • It can’t happen to me … that’s something other people need to worry about … I’ve said that before and I’m sure you have too. Unfortunately identity theft and hacking on shared public Wi-Fi networks happens more often than you’d want to believe. It happened to me on a recent cruise and the result was hundreds of dollars were stolen from my bank account. That probably wouldn’t have happened if I was using Hotspot Shield to protect me.

  • Most people probably don't travel as frequently as I do... they probably also don't take as many photos and videos as I do either. That means that it is even more important to preserve memories when they get back. When I was a kid, the solution was simple - visit the photomat and print out copies of the photos and send them to friends, relatives, and then stick them in a shoebox to be pulled out every so often to bring back memories. Today though, printing out photos is something that most people haven't thought of in a long time. Despite that, it's still a great way to preserve your vacation memories! Here's some other great ways that you can keep those vacation memories alive...

    Not only do I live in an urban area above a nightclub in downtown San Diego, but I snore … so does my wife. It’s something we’ve generally “gotten used to” and frankly when we travel somewhere remote it’s a bit spooky to not have crazy people screaming as they leave the clubs at 2 am. Unfortunately sometimes you just need to get to sleep and tune everything out. That’s why I was so excited to check out the Bose® noise-masking sleepbuds™.

  • Anyone can go camping... but to do it right, truly is an passion that takes years to hone. Today though, classic style of camping in a pop-up tent that many of us learned in the Boy Scouts has been surpassed by options such as glamping and RVs are more popular than ever. So while I encourage you go gather your buddies and head out into the forest, field, or desert and pitch a tent the old way... here's some ways to make it bigger. Everything in life should be bigger, badder, and more awesome so here's some ideas on how to make your next guys weekend campaign adventure even more awesome!

  • With the arrival of the GoPro 7 Black, the world is going crazy over this awesome little camera. Over the last few years GoPro cameras have become synonymous with sports and action POV videos. Unfortunately it's generally been a one-trick pony where it excelled at shooting in dangerous situations such as sports, racing, or under water. But now it's a far more complete product. Despite the fact that they are ultra-portable and can be mounted practically anywhere, they aren't magical. You still need to have a plan and use the tool properly to record and produce high octane video sequences that people will want to share.

  • Sleep is precious and so there's no shortage of products out there that are ready to help. Here's a few of our picks for getting a better sleep and more of it!

Let's Stay In Touch!
