The Rollei 35

Read More

Film is dead. It’s a pain in the ass. It’s expensive. It’s a mess. And nobody likes it. But, ya know what? I kind of miss some aspects of the grainy stuff… Mostly, I miss that anxious feeling I used to get when I finished a roll and just knew there was going to be great surprises waiting for me once the film was developed. The instant gratification of the digital camera killed that excitement.

Lacie MosKeyto

Read More

This one is showing up everywhere, so I might as well post it as well. It’s the smallest flash drive ever… The MosKeyto weighs in at 10 grams and is only 22mm long. Stick in your USB drive and leave as an extra drive or cary it around in your change pocket – you won’t even notice it in either case.

Available in 4GB ($18), 8GB ($28) and 16GB ($TBA) capacities.

Leica Revolver

Read More

Not at all related to EDC I guess, but damn man… This thing is rad. It’s a Leica Revolver. The Revolver is essentially a quick change lens set up for a M-mount Leica that allows you to quickly revolve between three different lenses. They are pretty much impossible to find, but if you do luck into one expect to pay around $5k. CRAZY.

Be A Huge Dork

Read More

Wanna be a huge dork? Get yourself a Zulu strap and mount your new iPod Nano on your wrist.

I dunno fellas… I know that would be great functionality in a small package, but really? Really?

I’ll stick with my obsolete swiss auto.

The Keyport

Read More

After years of waiting, the Keyport is finally shipping… For those not in the know, the Keyport essentially puts 6 keys in a box – saving you from carrying a keychain. Pricing is variable depending on the type of key blanks you require, but they start at around $80.

Rad iPad Case

Read More

I love my iPad. It rules… I use mine at the house and rarely take it on the road. That said, I know a lot of fellas are using them as laptop replacements and, as such, need a way of getting it from one place to another. Enter the coolest damned iPad cases ever.

Moleskine Sticky Notes

Read More

How long have we waited for a classy sticky note? Too damned long I say… Moleskine has finally stepped up with their “professional sticky notes.” They are overpriced ($9 for 3 packs of 20) and over engineered, but I seem to be drawn to that shit. I’ll be ordering soon I’m sure…

The Neistat Brothers: Jack-Knife Hack

Read More

If you don’t watch the Neistat Brothers on HBO, you should. I can’t put my finger on it, but their homemade productions are just down right addictive. Take the above for example… They make a “Keyman” only without the Leatherman and with a Swiss Army Knife. Admittedly, their craftsmanship isn’t tops but it is the first time I’ve seen someone do this with a proper folder.

Pretty cool.
