I like Luminox watches and can appreciate their purpose and brute ruggedness… But, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to me to spend over $1,000 on one. I mean, isn’t the point of this type of timepiece is for them to be a bit expendable?
Ask anyone in the industry what the best tech pouch is and 99% of them will say it’s the Peak Design Tech Pouch. I can’t really argue against that either… It’s made beautifully and is just a really smart design. That said, I don’t often carry enough tech with me to warrant such a large pouch and hate to give away empty space in my bag.
So… What are my options? While the GORUCK Wire Dopp isn’t nearly as sophisticated in design or fabrication, it’s absolutely perfect for me. I use two and sometimes 2.5 wire dopps to organize things like my cables, chargers, batteries, hard drives, and other gear. The best thing about them is that they sort of form to whatever it is that is inside them – giving you space back in your bag.
I don’t think these are new… But I have never messed with one and just recently had an opportunity. Essentially, it’s a double carabiner with a really strong magnet in between as well as a mechanical backup. You’d figure it would be made cheaply, but it’s actually pretty damned nice.
Interesting concepts… Essentially, Floyd designed some speaker stands for Sonos. I actually like them quite a bit. Not a bad option for someone looking to add surround sound to a space that wasn’t built for it, but they don’t want the typical crap speaker companies make.
So these guys take the first and the best polaroid cameras ever made (the SX-70), restore them, and essentially sell them as new. There a few guys doing this right now, but apparently Mint is the top dog. The cameras run about $370 which isn’t too bad given old and unrestored cameras that often don’t work run about $100.
