Drinking from a canteen’s spout is fine when you’re just rehydrating after a hike. But once camp is set up, you’ll probably be drinking something other than water, and that’s where this canteen from the Stable Goods Co. really shines. Flip it over, remove the bottom, and suddenly you’ve got a wide-mouthed pint glass.
You probably go to church every Sunday. But Super Bowl Sunday is different. Your living room becomes your temple, and the only gods your worshiping are the ones decked out in plastic shoulder pads showing early onset of dementia.

Samsung just announced a new project using Gear VR called Gone, in partnership with Skybound Entertainment (think Walking Dead) and WEVR. It’s either about the horrors of child abduction, or having a kid full of exploratory whimsy. The trailer is vague on that point.
Ultramarathon runner Scott Jurek ran the entire Appalachian trail last summer in 46 days, eight hours, and seven minutes, averaging 48 miles per day. So he knows what’s up with fitness gear that can withstand some brutal circumstances.

Well here’s a clever idea. An Indiegogo campaign for a safety device that pulls a swimmer to the surface in an emergency. It looks like a wild ride—a bit like flying through the air while hanging on to a helium balloon.
When you ride a bike at night, staying visible is essential—and this illuminated helmet not only adds lumens to your ride, but gives you some added functionality compared to your average clip-on lights.
Here’s an innovation so impractical, uncomfortable, and expensive, that I can’t stop looking at it. Of course the world has produced a luxury Swiss timepiece that has space on its band for an Apple Watch. It’s a goofy two-faced hybrid watch that packs a gloriously unnecessary double-whammy of bling into a single…
Last month, I took the Nikon D810 out on the Sierra High Route — one of the toughest adventures around. It got dirty, wet, and constantly banged around. Here’s how it performed.

Admit it: You’ve always dreamed of being a farmer. Sim Farm’s pixelated corn fields didn’t quite cut it; Farmville promised action but delivered an endless series of mindless chores.
