Keeps your coffee hot for 6 hours… and won’t tip over. The Admiral’s mug is the perfect coffee mug for those who are active and don’t want to drink so much coffee that you need a thermos. It’s also built really well…


Prime Day Find

Read More

Prime Day is a pain in the ass… You can find some great deals, but only if you are willing to pull the trigger immediately because the deals expire at random.

Thus far, my favorite deal is probably the 25% discount on the Fellow Ode Coffee Grinder. These things are expensive, never go on sale, and work better than anything else on the market. They are also built like a brick shit house.

For now, you can find the deal here.

Van Neistat

Little Building Co.

Read More

An Australian company that produces flat pack kits with everything you need to build your own architectural models of some really rad buildings. Pictured is the SC Johnson Complex as designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, but they offer many other examples.

I bet these are fun as hell to build.

Wurkkos FC11

Read More

Earlier in the week, I featured the Olight Baton 3 – a feature rich 1200 lumen torch with a backup battery system. It’s brilliantly designed and works wonderfully, but is priced at just under $100. If you want a similar experience (sans the backup battery) for less money and don’t mind going a little bigger in size, the Wurkkos FC11 is your best option.

Like the Olight, the Wurkkos features USB-C charging, a magnet on the tail, and 1200 lumen output. However, you can pick one up for only about $30. It might be the best bang for your buck on the torch market.

Get yours here.

Olight Baton 3

Read More

I like to keep a small flashlight in my truck for those times when the shit has mildly hit the fan and I need a little extra light. In the past, I’ve always kept a small AAA torch in my console but this comes with issues. Namely, over time the battery dies and I’m left with a AAA sized brick.

To combat that, I started looking for a USB rechargeable light. I ended up getting something really interesting – the Olight Baton 3. Essentially, it’s a really small and really bright flashlight with a magnet on one end and a pocket clip on the other – allowing the light to be used as a headlight (when clipped to the brim of your hat) or attached to any metal surface (when using the magnet on the other end).

On top of that, I bought the Premium edition which comes with a backup battery case that works similar to Apple’s AirPods. You simply charge the light and the case. If your light runs out of battery, just stick it in the case to charge it. As a result, you can get close to 95 days of runtime… and because it’s rechargeable via USB, I can always charge the thing in my truck as well.

It’s working out really well… I have no relationship with Olight, but I do have a discount code that I found online. Use “MIL20” to get 20% off either the premium or the standard light. Worth every damned penny…

Pivot Spray Bottle

Why didn’t I think of this? Essentially, it’s just a spray bottle that pivots – allowing you to spray at just about any angle no matter how much product is left in the bottle…
