Boots, Nuclear Bunkers, And 10 More Things We Want This Week — A Gear Guide For Bros
In this week’s gear guide for bros we see everything from Cold War-Era Nuclear Bunkers to Fillet Knives to hiking boots, and everything in between. This week’s ‘Things We Want, Gear Guide For Bros’ truly covers the complete spectrum of everything a bro might want (and need) in his life. We’ve got a little something for every bro.

Okay, if I had $850,000 to spare maaayyybbeeee I wouldn’t spend it on a Cold War-era nuclear bunker in Ireland, but if I had $850 MILLION I might be a lot more inclined to purchase something so extravagant (and badass).
The 46,363-square-foot blast-proof facility is nestled underground, its dome topped with a layer of dirt and grass. The country is listing the bunker for $850,000 and let journalists take a tour on Thursday.
The grass-topped facility is on 3.74 acres in fields northwest of Belfast and comes with a mean-looking fortified entrance with a ~disarming~ “reception” sign welcoming visitors.
The bunker, which was built in the 1980s to protect key government figures from a Russian nuclear strike, offers potential buyers a main conference and control room.
Again, I cannot afford this and have NO PRACTICAL PURPOSE for a nuclear bunker costing $850,000…But that doesn’t mean I don’t want it. Why wouldn’t I want something this weird and unique? It’s awesome! For more information follow that link below!
Boots for winter hiking should be 6” tall or more, waterproof, warm, and have a good tread. The Sorel Men’s Conquest Boot is a good choice. Hiking injuries are more serious in the winter, when weather can kill you. Ankle support, stability, and warmth are absolute musts.
These were featured earlier in the week here on BroBible in a post titled ‘Get Outside, Bros: 5 Must-Have Cold Weather Hiking Essentials‘ that I suggest each and every one of you check out!
Depending on the length of your hike, you’ll need to bring some stuff along. Bringing those extra layers, food, water, and emergency supplies requires a durable and well-made hiking pack. Osprey’s Manta 36 Hydration Pack is a solid choice. Featuring an internal reservoir for water, durable & lightweight construction, and a deployable rain cover, this pack will get you there.
