  • Suvie Truely Is The Robotic Chef That Most Busy Men Didn't Realize They Needed

    For most Gen X men like myself, the notion of having a hearty delicious meal waiting for us when we got home after a long day of work is a romantic notion that faded away as more moms and wives took an active role in the workplace. Along with that trend though was a resugence in men taking on kitchen duties at home. Somewhere in the middle of this transition is an entire spectrum of services ranging from Freshley to Blue Apron to game changing platforms like SUVIE that for the first time is a product that I can see having as a part of my life beyond a particularly busy time when I don't have time to shop and source my own stuff.

  • Sensibo Air PRO: The Tech That Should Be Built Into Every Air Conditioner

    A few months ago I was really excited... our contractor was putting the finishing touches on our new heat pump unit. We'd selected an advanced model with some pretty cool energy savings features that drew inspiration from the mini-split systems that were common in wall-mounted systems but weren't quite standard yet for systems like ours that were built in. I held my Google Nest thermostat in hand and was excited to have that installed to complete our smart home network. Until the installer shared with me that while Google's tech was great, it was never really designed to offer the full set of features found on our new unit. On the other hand, Sensibo Air PRO was exactly what we needed.

    As someone who's always on the go and has a keen interest in the latest technology and gadgets, I understand the importance of having efficient and effective tools that make everyday tasks simpler. Years ago I didn't think I'd get giggly like a school girl while shopping for appliances or home tech to do my chores. But here I am and a couple months ago when Shark asked if we'd like to check out their CarpetXpert Carpet Cleaner I couldn't wait.

  • This Peugeot All Terrain BBQ Pepper Mill Is Perfect For Any Guy Who Wants To Be King Of The Grill

    One of the things that I love about doing what I do here at ManTripping is that we get introduced to all sorts of different brands - fresh faced startups trying to disrupt an industry to established companies with decades of experience., Sometimes though we discover brands like Peugeot that are a mixture of both and have a product offering I'm shocked to have never worked with previously. In this case it's their quirky "All Terrain BBQ Mill" and combined with their library of different types of pepper, might just be one of the coolest gifts for guys that's out there this year!

    As a seasoned tech enthusiast, I love testing out the latest gadgets. In this case, I've had my hands on the Tranya Nova Lite True wireless earbuds - a product designed in part to show that while Qualcomm represents quality, performance, and elite production - Chinese manufacturers are doing amazing things by developing domestic solutions that cost a whole lot less but deliver a similar level of sound These buds are a game-changer - not just for their features … advanced ANC, high-fidelity sound and customizable audio experience but also for the fact that Tranya produced them for just over half the price by dumping Qualcomm chips!

  • RUX 70L Is A Gear Hauling Bag For Guys That Have Tried Everything Else Already

    A good gear bag might not be the sexiest piece of gear in your collection but it is an invaluable "store it all" when you need toss stuff somewhere to keep it safe, dry, and easy to move it around. I have a handful of mission-specific rugged duffle bags for this but after using the RUK 70L for the past few months I'm actually thinking about ditching those bags and investing in more of these instead.

  • myQ Is More Than Just A "Smart Garage Door" System

    At first glance, myQ seems like it might just be a fun piece of trade language that LiftMaster and Chamberlain added to their marketing material to make their offerings unique compared to others out there but what I've discovered after living with it for the past few months is that it is a legitimate eco-system that improves the way we interact with the portals to our home - in the same way that other smart home tech improves our daily lives living inside.

    I'm a sucker for foodie gadgets and so I have a few different air fryers laying around the house but what I'd resisted until now was a smokeless grill. To be honestly I didn't think the could actually work well nor could they match the promise of being "smokeless" - truthfully - neither was this one but it was good enough to earn a permanent spot our collection of food gadgets and I've already bought one for a friend.

  • Picking The Right Cup Is The Essential First Step Towards Proper Hydration

    I'm a devoted evangelist for the Owala Freesip cup but I find not that the reason there are so many different varieties out there is because there are a lot of different folks drinking their favorite beverages in a lot of different ways. That's why I was excited when Trove Brands decided to send us some water bottles and cups to check out from Owala as well as Blender Bottle and they also included their EcoBrite cleaning tablets so we can keep things clean!

  • Airthings View Plus Review - The Most Comprehensive Indoor Air Quality Monitor We've Ever Tested

    Like most of you, I'm on a mission to improve my quality of life - that means paying attention to self care and personal health but the environment around you is just as important.

  • YA-Man Heated Electric Men's Shaver Review

    The YA-MAN Heated Electric Men's Shaver, is a game-changer in grooming technology that so far has been a secret that the Japanese were happy to keep to themselves. Picture a near perfect rotary shaver that does the technical side flawlessly... now add a heated function that offers a barbershop like luxury experience and you get the idea. Is it perfect - no - but the added element to head the head adds a new level of luxury that I think all men will begin to expect to be included in high-end electric razors soon.

  • With Soundboks Powering My Halloween Display The Sound Is Spooky Good

    I've tested more than my share of Bluetooth speakers over the years of various sizes from pocket-sized portable units to shelf speakers designed to fill a room with high-quality audio. However, I've never experienced something quite like Soundboks. It has excellent sound quality with big bass and good fidelity at the high notes but it is also somehow surprisingly light and wireless. While this makes it perfect for backyard BBQs and tailgates... it also works great for Halloween displays and Christmas decorations after that!

  • Bamboo Toilet Paper, Bidets and More Ways That Men Can Make Pooping More Eco Friendly

    When we look at the topic of conservation and preserving the clean air and water that we enjoy for our recreational activities, the conversation normally turns to lightbulbs and EV cars. However, like so much else in live, there are so many other big as well as small ways to make an impact. In fact, this topic was proposed to me by a PR person after joking around about a product that she was repping but it makes sense... we generate a lot of waste every time we use the toilet and let's face it, we all poop. 

  • Drinkmate OmniFizz Proves That Just Because You Can Carbonate Any Liquid, It Doesn't Mean You Should!

    You've probably heard of Soda Stream... for the past few years it's been the rage of suburban housewives and kids who refuse to drink plain ole' water but love pop. Well I'm not sure what happened recently but it seems like there are a ton of competitors fighting it out on the market all of a sudden. Well, compared to Drinkmate OmniFizz, Soda Stream just feels old and tired. We've run our Drinkmate through the paces over the past few months and added bubbles to everything from whiskey to cold brew coffee but we settled on a simple classic sparkling lemon water as a practical favorite.

  • Packtalk Edgephones Enable Seamless Off Road Communication For Riders, Drivers and Spotters

    It's honestly been a while since I've had some time to get dusty on the trails but I'm hoping to break that streak soon now that things are getting more stable and the weather is starting to cool off again. Plus, now that I'll be in Michigan - I have a whole bunch of new trails to explore. One thing though that remains the same, whether I'm cruising through sandy washes in 120 degree heat or ice crusted forest trails in Michigan - being able to communicate with the other folks in your pack makes things more fun and far safer too. While mobile phones are good on highways, on the trails they don't always work and that's where Cardo Systems comes in with their Packtalk Edgephones ORV.
