Guys, seriously read what I have to say about MayaLuxuryRentals.com because it’s rare that I ever write about something as earnestly and with such enthusiasm as I will about this right here. As some of you might have noticed from the BroBible Instagram or my blog posts yesterday, last week I was in Mexico to see the band Phish play 3 concerts in the Mayan Riviera. After leaving the Barcelo resort where Phish played me and 3 friends popped on over to Puerto Aventuras, where a lifelong friend of mine is living as an expat and renting out the nicest houses and condos I’ve ever seen in Mexico…also, the bars down there are glorious and pour drinks that are stiff as fuuuuck.
This was actually my 4th time staying down in that part of Mexico, but holy hell was my mind blown by how nice it’s gotten, and how goddamn fun it is. Seriously, check out these pics of Casa Mariposa, which you can rent whenever you want…like CLICK THIS LINK (then check out Casa Mariposa) and you can rent it for Spring Break 2016 and have the best goddamn spring break of your life (I spent Spring Break 2005 down there, it was glorious):
Here’s the marina we went fishing out of in Puerto Aventuras:
Here’s the fish we caught and how we brought it to one of the restaurants on the marina and they cooked it up for us for dirt cheap…and then gave us tequila shots on the house:
I’m talking like DREAM VACATION here, bros. But you can afford it if you get a crew together to rent the house….and if you don’t get a crew together you can still afford it because there are 1 bedroom options, and you don’t have to rent that big ass house…in fact there are 18 rental options from my girl Melodie over at MayaLuxuryRentals.com, and I’ll stake my reputation on the fact that if you follow that link and book one of those spots you’ll have one of the best vacations of your life, guaranteed.
Like I said before, I rarely talk about things with such enthusiasm but this was one hell of a trip, and I want you bros to experience it. So click on over by following the link below and see what’s available. Talk to your significant others, your bros, your family or whoever…Just get your ass down there and catch some mahi, some white marlin, some wahoo and sailfish (it’s one of the top sailfish fishing destinations in the world)…drink some tequila, eat some fresh tacos, check out the cenotes (freshwater springs in the middle of the jungle) and have a unique experience. You won’t regret it.
Typically it takes months and months…even YEARS to infuse a spirit with the flavor of oak. That whole ‘oak barrel aged’ thing takes FOREVER, and this is something that’s vexed the booze industry for years..until now. Enter the ‘Oak Bottle’, a revolutionary product that’ll take your booze and infuse it with the flavor of oak in just 24 to 48 hours, depending upon the type of spirit.
Here’s a very, VERY short version of how the Oak Bottle works. For the full explanation I’m gonna need you bros to follow that link below (or above) and head over to their website, because they’ve got multiple models of the Oak Bottle and I’m not sure which one will fit your specific need:
Retail price on the Oak Bottle runs between 59.95-174.95, depending on the level of Oak Bottle that you’re looking for. I’ve recently tried one out for my first time and I’m 100% willing to give it my Seal of Approval, because the Oak Bottle does exactly what it claims to do and it DOES IT WELL. So if you’re interested then FOLLOW THAT LINK BELOW AND BUY YOURS TODAY!
Guys need lighters, it’s as simple as that. Maybe you’re a cigarette smoker and that’s your thing, I’m not here to judge you. I smoked some Cuban cigars last week in Mexico, I needed a lighter. Maybe you’ve got some kindling that you need to fire up in order to start a campfire, or maybe you’re looking to fire up a bowl of the sticky icky. Whatever it is you need the lighter for one fact remains: you need a lighter. And if you’ve been reading this ‘Things We Want’ weekly gear guide for long enough then you know by now that I’m all about multi-purpose products. If a device only has one use then it’s dead to me. That’s why the Lighter Bro is PERFECT….also if you use PROMO CODE: brobible when purchasing you’ll get 15% off today!
It’s a multi-tool case to house your lighter. Here’s what you get with the Lighter Bro:
LighterBro® multi-tool’s functional yet elegant design is merged in manufacturing with only the highest quality Japanese 420 stainless steel and industrial processes available, so LighterBro can deliver a product of exceptional quality, durability and style.

These bros launched on KickStarter and completely demolished their goal. To date they’ve raised over $140K on KickStarter and have since gone on to run a ridiculously successful boot business of 100% leather boots for bros, American made.

So if you’re interested just follow that link below and check ’em out! Also, big shout out to my buddy Eric who owns a pair and turned me on to these, because they’re badass.
You’re not a boy anymore, you’re a man! And that means that you need to be accessorizing yourself with a stylish watch.

This MVMT watch is PERFECT for your needs, and it’s stylish as hell. Click on over to check it out by following that link below!
Well bros, the future is now. The future is no longer just a crank and some wheels, it’s an e-bike, and the future looks AWESOME. Seriously, I’d never even heard of an E-Bike until I came across the ST2 from Stromer and I have to admit that this bicycle is absolutely incredible. It’s got form and function, and I plan on getting my hands on one as soon as possible.
If you’re wondering what exactly an e-bike is well here’s what the ST2 is all about:
Stromer’s ST2 is powerful – reaching speeds up to 28 MPH with a distance up to 90 miles. It comes equipped with a new, and more compact SYNO Drive motor, that not only provides 500W of power, but an enormous 35Nm of torque too. The new, proprietary Li-Ion battery puts the ST2 in a league of its own. The 48-volt battery contains a whopping 814Wh of energy. And despite the significant increase in endurance (compared with the ST1), the ST2’s battery still tucks neatly away into the down tube.
The most jaw-dropping features have to do with Omni – Stromer’s cloud-based platform. It establishes a link between the Stromer App and the Stromer portal (for your dealer).
Through the app, you can remotely lock and unlock your bike to prevent theft (this locks the back tire)
If someone tries to interfere with the bike, lights will automatically begin to flash and the motor will go into theft mode, making riding nearly impossible
If the bike is stolen, it can be remotely located through a built-in, intelligent GPS system which interfaces with the app
Stromer portal offers a holistic overview of your ST2, starting from the due date of the next service through to support from the Stromer Service staff in the remote detection and rectification of minor problems with the bike
Using the portal, your dealer can configure and analyze your ST2, track service entries and maintenance schedules and access data for the bike and key statistics
City Kit with Fenders and Rear Carry Rack, Integrated Headlight and Tail light with daytime running mode, USB Charging Port Built into Front Light, GPS theft recovery
Free wireless software updates, touch screen interface, integrated LED lights, matching alloy fenders
Regenerative braking(can recharge while braking), boost mode (allows you to cruise at 12mph without pedaling), move mode (push assistance)
So it’s like a bike, but ten thousand times better. If this is something that piques your interest then follow that link below to learn more about the ST2 from Stromer!!!!
I know I’m not the only guy here who plays tennis, because I’ve covered tennis in the past and have seen a solid level of interest from you the readers.

This is one of those products that’s so badass I can’t help but wonder why it took so long for someone to release it. The Cube from RIF6 turns every MDL/HDMI device you have: iPhone, Android, Tablet, etc into a projector…or rather the Cube is a projector for those devices. Say you’ve got a video on your phone and want to show it to a group, pull the Cube out of your pocket and you can project that video on to the wall next to you.
Here’s how The Cube describes itself:
The Cube is the missing link in mobile media. The first projector built specifically for our smart devices, the Cube redefines the way we interact with mobile. Free yourself from the limitations of screen size and create an adaptable mobile experience fit for your unique lifestyle.
Compatible with any HDMI/MHL device, the Cube is designed to enhance the mobile experiences our lives revolve around, from socializing and sharing to teaching and creating. Pull up a YouTube clip on your tablet, browse blogs on your phone, host a movie night on your laptop – with the Cube, you can explore your favorite media in an entirely new light.
