Alite Treeline Table

Tables – like chairs – are, most of the time, not particularly space-efficient, making a 10 minute walk to the beach feel like an eternity, let alone backpacking with any of the above. Fortunately, a practical option now exists in Alite’s Treeline Table. Following the same concept as their chairs, the 4.8 pound Treeline comes apart and collapses to pack away neatly inside its stuff sack. Better yet, the table itself is full-featured, boasting a taught, perfectly flat surface, twist-lock telescopic legs to adjust in height or better accommodate uneven surfaces, and a 50 lbs weight capacity. Gobbling down canned beans over beers and poker beside a campfire was never this comfortable.

Find it at Alite – $210

DUN Ultrathin Bifold

Need to relieve that bulky feeling in your pocket? You could purchase an expensive wallet (like Dunhill… not to be confused with DUN) leaving you with little cash left with which to stuff it. Or you can opt for DUN, the world’ thinnest leather billfold. At a thickness of just 0.2” empty, DUN makes your old wallet look like it needs its stomach stapled. Made from as little material as possible, it still manages to carry more than just the basics, including change or a key, four cards (a couple more will fit, worst case), a few business cards, receipts, plus up to 10 unfolded bills in its money strap. The classic lines and minimalist design work in unison to create a stylish yet functional wallet that comes in either premium black or dark brown leather.

Check it out at Kickstarter – $39

Lumu Light Meter for iPhone

The classic light meter is not something we’d want to lug around with us on a daily basis, particularly not if we’re travelling light with a small daypack and camera. Lumu, on the other hand, is a very different animal. Diminutive in size, Lumu makes use of your exiting hardware, i.e. an iOS 5 iPhone or iPod, by plugging into its headphone port. Then, just position the bulb in front of your subject for Lumu to measure the light, outputting the correct photo parameters to use – ISO, aperture, and time – on its accompanying app. It can also save given parameters, location and a photo as a note for reference, measures light in lux or foot-candle, and works great with simple pinhole cameras by displaying a suggested shutter time. And it never needs a battery.

Find it at BiteMyApple – $150

Sir Richard's Condom Company Collections Pack

We pass around the pig skin, earn the sheepskin and wear the… latex? Not just any latex, Sir Richard’s finest condoms are for the “uncommitted”, providing three varieties in each 3- or 12-count pack. The Ultra Thin natural latex condom is as strong as the others but so sheer it allows for supreme sensitivity.

Functional as well as stimulating, each condom is electronically tested for safety and reliability as approved by the FDA. After all, who doesn’t want the FDA in their bedroom (or kitchen table, or mall dressing room). You can’t get more protection without a bat and helmet. And because Sir Richard’s care about more than just your pleasure, for every condom purchased, they’ll donate a condom to a country in need.

Grab a pack on Amazon or at Sir Richard’s Condom Company – $5+

The Beer Glass Froster

Lacking the foresight to stock glasses in the freezer, the Beer Glass Froster was seemingly designed just for us. Clamp one to your table or bar and hit the spout to instantly chill a beer glass or mug to ice-cold temperatures, inviting for any beer best served chilled. A blue LED also lights up the glass while in use, powered by a trifecta of AAA batteries. However, using the froster requires a CO2 tank which, while inexpensive, isn’t really helping much in the overall price department.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible

It won’t be here in time for summer, but invest in your future (i.e. summertime 2015) with Chevrolet’s drop-top Z06. Despite its fully electronic top that can be remotely lowered at speeds of up to 30mph, this Z06 was designed from the get-go to be an open-top vehicle, meaning its rigid aluminum frame is up for whatever torsional punishment its engine and handling can dish out. Speaking of which, its supercharged V8 puts out over 625 horsepower and 635 lbs-ft of torque, transmitted through either a 7-speed manual or 8-speed paddle-shift automatic to its massive 19- and 20- front and rear wheels, respectively. And we haven’t even talked about its Active Fuel Management (that shuts off half its cylinders for 29mpg highway driving), five selectable driver modes to personalize each drive, and Magnetic Selective Ride Control that automatically controls suspension stiffness for a smooth, responsive ride regardless of terrain variations.

Ti2 TechLiner Pen Blackwash

We love Pilot’s fine Hi-Tec-C ink cartridges, but frankly they’re a little tough to get a hold of in our neck of the woods. Enter Uni-Ball’s Signo 207, the companion cartridge to Mike Bond’s Ti2 TechLiner Pen. Available in ultrafine sizes down to 0.38mm, it writes extremely smoothly and features anti-fraud ink, preventing check washing. And the pen around it isn’t too shabby, either: the TechLiner is entirely machined from pure titanium billets and sports one of four finishes – tumbled, gonzodized, matte black, or blackwash (shown). It’s also got a quick-to-remove cap that sticks thanks to neodymium magnets on both ends, optional pocket clips (add ten bucks), and a machined grip that won’t ever quit.

Pick one up on Kickstarter – $55+

FINsix Dart Compact Laptop Adapter 2

Carrying around a notebook computer usually entails dragging along its adapter, too, often (and ironically) much thicker and overall bulkier than the computer itself. FINsix’s 65W laptop adapter, on the other hand, is a hell of a lot more portable. Thanks to novel Very High Frequency power conversion technology, it’s far smaller and lighter (at roughly 2 ounces) than your current monstrous adapter, occupies only a single socket when in use, and even sports a USB port for charging your mobile devices, eliminating yet another charger from your carry.

Grab yours at Kickstarter - $89+

What’s the point of baking if you can’t plaster your attribution all over the resulting fare? That’s the idea behind Valek’s Personalized Rolling Pins, each made from beech wood with repeating patterns laser engraved across their rolling surface. Choose amongst a variety of patterns – including dinosaurs, dogs, cats, and geometric shapes – or customize one yourself, with “Made by” followed by your (or your brand’s) name. No word on how difficult it is for them to laser engrave a logo or graphic onto one, but it doesn’t hurt to ask.
