Kryptek Flask

August 11th, 2014


Made from stainless steel, this Kryptek flask features a stitched outer shell with Kryptek branding. 7 ounce capacity. I got mine as part of the ‘spoils of war’ from the recent OR Summer Market.

You can get one here: www.kryptekstore.com/Kryptek-Flask-P135

Under Armour – Men’s UA Mobtown Shoes

August 10th, 2014


Under Armour’s Mobtown basketball shoe features a slim athletic cut designed to offer better mobility by eliminating the bulk of extra fabric. The camouflage upper, called Dune (it’s not licensed MultiCam, but it’s certainly inspired by Crye’s pattern), is made from water-resistant canvas. The ultra-soft collar lining and full-length Micro G sockliner make up the inside of the shoe.

Also available with a Black full-grain leather upper.

OR Summer Market – Sleefs

August 7th, 2014

Sleefs are an arm covering for outdoor activities that offer protection from sun at 30 SPF. They also keep the muscles warm during cold weather activities.


Here, Titus models the digicam version but they offer a wide variety of patterns including sports teams.




OR Summer Market – Selk’Bag

August 7th, 2014

Selk’Bag, the sleeping bag that you wear like a sleeper has teamed up with Marvel to offer four new bags.


Featuring Spiderman, Iron Man, Captain America and The Hulk, they integrate foot, hand and head covers. These are real sleeping bags for the outdoors and not just some costume or couch potato wear. Adult sizes only (sorry Titus).



OR Open Air Demo – Fitovers

August 7th, 2014


Since I wear glasses, I really like the Fitovers from Jonathon Paul. I don’t have any sun glasses and these fit over my regular glasses to protect my eyes from the sun. I also like that they come in kids sizes. In fact, they offer X-small, Small, Medium, Large and XLarge for all face sizes. Also, they have many different lens colors. My favorite is the polarized green mirrored but the best one is the yellow which filters out 95% of blue light.



OR Open Air Demo – Kahuna Creations

August 6th, 2014

Last year at OR, we bought a Kahuna Creations longboard called the Black Wave. This board is a drop deck used for high performance carving. It’s also low, at an inch from the ground, so anyone could ride the board. I ride it all of the time. When used with the paddle it’s great for off-season Stand Up Paddleboarding and offers an intense upper body and core fitness workout.


But their newest board is the Shaka-kahili which is the board in the upper left of the photo. It is in the shape of a hammock and the board has two high points on the trucks. The Shaka-kahili is mainly used for cruising and has a great stable design.



OR Open Air Demo – Personal Security Products Hike N’ Strike

August 6th, 2014

PS Products had two cool items. First was the Blast Knuckles Extreme which packs a punch of 950,000 volts. Not only can you punch someone trying to hurt you, you can also shock them. You just press the button while you are punching them.


I’m a hiker and I often worry about wild animals and dogs who might attack me on the trail. Some people are also dangerous. The Hike n’ Strike includes a flashlight and extreme spike electrodes with 950,000 volts of power to scare anyone or anything off. I like that it has a light to light my way as well as the built in shocker. It also has a non-slip molded group so you won’t lose it.




OR Open Air Demo – Industrial Revolution Softshell Ice Cream Ball

August 6th, 2014

One of the most useful things I saw at the event was the new softshell ice cream ball from www.YayLabs.com.


It’s very simple to use and I want to get one for use while camping. The inside of the ball is hollow and you put ice cream mix inside at one end and ice and salt at the other end. Then you just roll it around until the ice cream is made. It looks like lots of fun and the ice cream I tried was awesome.

Forgotten Weapons – Schwarzlose 1908 Blow-Forward Pistol

August 3rd, 2014

Chances are good you’ve never heard of the Schwarzlose 1908 Blow-Forward pistol. It’s one of only a few blow-forward operation pistols from the late 19th/early 20th century, and saw limited commercial success.

The Venture Bros. – Season 6 Teaser

August 2nd, 2014

In true teaser fashion all we get is a few flashes of some backgrounds, the promise of a Gargantua-2 special later this year, and…. oh, yeah, a mysterious new man clad all in blue who’s been bumping off members of the Guild of Calamitous Intent. Who could it possibly be?

NERF Zombie Strike Chainsaw

August 1st, 2014


A new addition to the Zombie Strike line, this chainsaw takes an obvious cue from the Lancer in Gears of War, but it’s pretty badass so we’ll forgive ‘em. Made of NERF’s trademark foam, it functions as a standalone toy chainsaw, all marked up with battle damage and the like. Pressing the green button on either side will produce chainsaw noises, although the left side also functions as the speaker so unfortunately the sound gets a bit muffled when in use. The coolest feature is its compatibility with the NERF tactical rail, so it can be attached to the forend of any compatible NERF blaster.


The Zombie Strike Chainsaw should be available wherever NERF is sold.


Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Red Band Trailer (NSFW)

July 31st, 2014

‘A Dame to Kill For’ is looking like a decent sequel to the first Sin City movie. Fair warning, the trailer is violent, and more importantly actually seems to spoil quite a bit.

SIG SAUER Launches New Webstore, Expanded Product Lines

July 30th, 2014


NEWINGTON, N.H. (July 31, 2014) — SIG SAUER® has launched a redesigned webstore, offering an expanded selection of SIG SAUER branded clothing, merchandise, accessories, and a new line of Mitch Rosen designed holsters.

The SIG SAUER webstore has always been the premier online resource for factory parts and accessories. Now fans can show their affinity for the SIG SAUER brand with a selection of men’s and women’s shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and drinkware.

“SIG SAUER owners are passionate about their firearms,” said Jeff Creamer, SIG SAUER Executive Director and Chief Merchandise Manager. “Now they can show that passion with products that fit the SIG SAUER brand.”

In addition to new clothing, SIG SAUER has partnered with Mitch Rosen Extraordinary Gunleather to provide a line of SIG SAUER-specific holsters, including hard-to-find holsters for handguns such as the SP2022®, 1911, P320, P250® and P290®. Right- and left-hand models are available in most patterns.

“Mitch Rosen is one of the top holster manufacturers out there, and we’re excited to offer these products,” Creamer said.

While many of the products in the webstore are new, Creamer said they are just the beginning.

“Expect to see more and more products being added in the future,” he said. “We’re working with some of the best clothing and accessory manufacturers to develop some really cool items.”

Edit: SIG Sauer has revised their shipping rates for SIG apparel. They’ll be cutting shipping to $9.95 and offering free shipping on all order $100 or more.

Deadpool Leaked Test Footage

July 29th, 2014

Deadpool Test Footage in HD by itsartmag

Some shaky cam footage of a test film for a potential Deadpool movie was leaked a few days ago. It was pulled, but thankfully the powers that be decided to release the actual test film on the internet, and man is it great. Note two things:

1) This is a few years old, and was put together to try and sell a Deadpool movie to Fox. Thankfully, the buzz on this test footage has been pretty positive, so they may attempt to revitalize the project after all!

2) It’s 100% CGI, but it’s not likely that a full length theatrical release would be.

They were even kind enough to sneak in a bit of Multiplayer footage at the end.

This video combines two of my favorite entertainment forces, Batman and Dethklok, into a fusion of metal and vigilantism. Fair warning, it’s a bit weird.

The Three Amigos – Bushnell Bear Grylls BackTrack D-Tour

July 28th, 2014


The BackTrack D-Tour is designed to allow the user to find their way back to a custom waypoint that can be marked with the device. Using the D-Tour, we found that it’s best to travel a steady pace to allow the device to calibrate your directions. It’s worth noting that use in an area with a strong presence of iron or other magnetic metals can cause an error in the path finding. Additionally, the D-Tour is compatible with most personal computers, and can show the course, length, speed, elevation, and temperature of the most recently logged trip.

The BackTrack also comes with a rescue mirror which includes a handy Morse code guide.
