Twist-off bottle caps are supposed to be easy to open with your bare hands. But there are still some sharp metal edges to deal with, which usually has thirsty people reaching for something to protect their hand, like their shirt tails. Finally, there's a shirt that's designed specifically to be up to the challenge.

To ensure the act of cracking open a cold one doesn't cost someone the shredded shirt off their back, Austin, Texas-based Criquet has designed one with reinforced tails that can handle the toughest twist-off. Available in a small assortment of long-sleeve colors and patterns, the shirts will set you back $85 a piece, and there's no reason to think they wouldn't be just as effective on stuck pickle jars or obstinate tubes of toothpaste.
