Alright, bros, it’s time again for the weekly ‘Things We Want’ feature. It’s a collection of the hottest gear I’ve come across this week. Ranging from items I desperately want in my life to things I’ll never be able to afford, I try and include a cross section of everything here in the ‘Things We Want‘ roundup. If you know of a product that you think should be featured in my weekly Gear Guide then feel free to hit me up via email at email@example.com.
I’ve featured Brathwait Swiss watches here in the past in the Things We Want column because they’re the most transparent Swiss watch maker around, meaning they don’t jack up the price with a bunch of things hidden below the surface. Monday is the total solar eclipse here in America, and they’ll be running a very timely deal on the Minimalist Luminous timepiece:
“Beginning at 9AM ET on eclipse day, customers will be able to access exclusive pricing for the Minimalist Luminous via the BRATHWAIT website. Tracing the path of totality, the percentage savings will increase by 10% every two hours as the eclipse passes over the continental United States — building from 10% off to a max of 30% off by the time the eclipse reaches South Carolina.”
This is an extremely sharp timepiece. One that will match your day-to-day wardrobe as well as your formalwear. You can dress this watch up or down for any occasion, and it’s one that’s certain to turn heads regularly.
So, if you want to save 30% on this watch thanks to the first total solar eclipse in decades just follow that link!
I had the chance to test out the Phiaton BT 390 wireless Bluetooth headphones this week and I’ll tell you bros that I was blown away. Something that stuck out the most to me about these headphones is how the sound quality seemed to be optimal at extreme (high and low) volumes. I threw on ‘Rap Caviar’ on Spotify and tested these headphones out for several hours and I definitely think these are worth way more than the $79 sticker price on Amazon. The Bluetooth 4.1 leads to enhanced battery life and sound quality. The battery lasts up to 30 hours on continuous play, and there’s a cable which allows you ot use the headphones by plugging directly into the headphone jack even after the battery has run out. These are legit, and if you need some new headphones (or know someone who does) you should click that link below.
Bros! Meet Bucketfeet. It’s a 100% made to order brand of artist-designed footwear. The styles are endless, and you’re practically guaranteed to always be the person in the room wearing the freshest, most stylish kicks. Bucketfeet is seeking to serve as a platform for artists to sell their unique work and spark conversation. Since every pair is made to order they are never out of stock. Each pair is delivered within 10 days of ordering. There are over 40,000 artists participating in this project now and that number is expected to grow up to 100,000 by 2018.
I was eight years old when I owned my first pair of Tevas in the 90s. I got them at K-Mart in the summer and there were little red lizards woven into the straps. They lasted an entire summer, being the best shoe ever for wading in the freestone mountain creek near my parent’s house, walking over rocks to catch minnows and crayfish. My Jesus-walkers had to be retired after my next growth spurt.
A staple of us Phish-loving, weekend-warrior granola types in the ’90s, Tevas have quietly made a cool comeback over the past couple years. They’re *still* the summer sandal of choice for people who need to get their feet wet when kayaking, tubing, rafting, whatever… And their designs are radder than ever. The Teva Universal Sandal has a plethora of colorways and The Sanborn is the most comfortable open-toed shoe you’ll ever wear. The Terra Float, pictured above, is the ultimate fast-drying river shoe.
Suck it, elitist fashion snobs: Tevas are cool again. Welcome to the greatest era of human footwear history. — @brandonwenerd
This paracord keychain carabiner doubles as a unique survival tool. It has a built-in flint rod, whistle, flint scraper/cutter, key ring, and of course the 550 paracord. It’s a unique-looking and highly functional keychain, if that’s what you’re in the market for.
Your backpack and your fishing pack are as different as night and day. For fishing the back country and/or hitting the trout streams out West you need a very specific bag with you to carry all that luggage. The Fishpond Summit Sling Fly Fishing Pack has a velcro patch for flies, waterproof zippers, flexible latch tubes, and is built for fishing from the inside out.
This BPA-free, dishwasher safe plastic pitcher has a built-in infuser. You pour the coffee grounds into the infuser, drop it into the water, let it sit overnight (8 to 36 hours), and you’ve got delicious cold brew coffee waiting for you. I prefer to add a healthy dose of cinnamon into the middle of the coffee grounds, and I use the Starbucks Morning Blend which I buy in bulk online.
The Takeya Cold Brew Iced Coffee Maker only costs $19. You can make the cold brew coffee overnight and then remove the infuser, or you can purchase the set of two pitchers and transfer the coffee into the empty pitcher. I prefer this (this is the setup I purchased) because it enables me to always be making more cold brew coffee. I drink several cups a day and I’ve yet to run out because I always have one pitcher that I’m drinking cold brew out of and another pitcher that is brewing up delicious coffee.
With the summer days dwindling down it’s natural to want the nights to last forever (or at least until you pass out.) But let’s be honest, your backyard is straight boring. It needs fire. Fire makes EVERYTHING better. Before you soak a fence in lighter fluid and strike a match, let’s consider a more controlled flame. Check out this Roman fire pit that’s sure to turn your patio into a party zone (or at least a S’more making area).
This unique fire pit features a 35″ diameter high temp antique bronze painted steel fire bowl with hammered lip and brushed painted steel legs. The Roman Fire Pit comes complete with a one piece mesh fire screen with high-temperature paint, ensuring that your flames are kept contained while enjoying the blazing warmth.
The BOKER Plus Credit Card Knife is a tiny and affordable everyday carry blade that will fit discretely into your pocket. It’s light, sharp, and durable. What else can you ask for in an everyday carry blad?
If you’re in the market for some new fishing gloves then check these out. They’re an industry-wide favorite, respected by professional and amateur anglers alike. You can save money by purchasing them through Amazon where they have a 4.5 out of 5-star rating.
Trakk Bullet Bluetooth speakers endure a test that sends water at all angles through a 12.5mm nozzle at a rate of 100 liters/min at a pressure of 100kN/m² for three minutes from a distance of three meters. If they can’t play high-quality, crystal clear, wireless music after that test, they don’t get off the production line. Sound tough enough? This speaker was designed with adventure in mind, and at just six inches long with a 1600mAh battery, the Trakk Bullet will provide an enduring soundtrack for even your most intense treks.
Drone racing’s popularity is growing fast, but racing drones are almost all inherently tough for beginners to control. The Aerix Black Talon, however, is the first drone designed for beginner racers, giving you the extreme performance of a high-speed drone with the enhanced flight control of more novice drones. Capable of streaming live video in 720P via an independent WiFi transmission to the free app, you can steer more accurately while recording flights in first-person so you can improve on your mistakes.
While initially built as a go to streaming spot for soccer matches, fuboTV has made major strides both within and well beyond the sports world.

From major networks like NBC and FOX, to cable channels like A&E and FXX, to a range of sports channels including FS1, NBC Sports Network, and NBA TV, fuboTV marks the glorious intersection between live television and affordability.
