Cooper Spirits Lock, Stock & Barrel 20-Year Rye Whiskey
20-year-old Rye. Do I need to say anything more? Honestly, do I? How often do you have the chance to sip a 20-year-old Rye Whiskey? This is the ONLY 20-year Rye expression on the market right now and only 3,000 bottles are available ($389 per bottle). It carries notes of ‘warm spiced date cake, toffee, baking spice, dried apricot, cantaloupe, and peppery rye spice.’
Cooper Spirits makes some of the finest spirits around these days and this expression was hand-selected by third-generation distiller Robert J. Cooper from 20-Year Rye sourced from Alberta Distillers Ltd. barrels. I’ve recently been sipping on Alberta Distillers Ry more than ever and I’ve been completely blown away by the quality. I have extremely high hopes for this 20-Year Rye that clocks in at 122-proof. You can hit that ‘shop now’ button below to visit the Cooper Spirits website.
The Filson x Popeye Collection
Filson just dropped this sick Popeye collection that they debuted on a live stream from a straight-up tugboat. Popeye is BACK, my dudes. This is an extremely limited-edition collection that includes a fresh AF hat, t-shirts, a hoodie, and more.
The custom Popeye graphics on Filson apparel are going to literally fly off the shelves. So if you’re in the designs then you can check these out on Filson’s website and pick them up before they’re gone! The t-shirts are selling for $50 and the hat is $75 which is a lot for a hat but I’ll be honest, I need these in my life.
NVIDIA GeForce’s Newest Gaming Laptops
We are living in the Golden Age of Gaming and we can thank NVIDIA GeForce‘s latest tech for getting us there. NVIDIA powers the world’s fastest gaming laptops but you know this if you’re into gaming. NVIDIA is a household name if you’re a PC gamer. With that said, maybe you are in the market for a new laptop for someone else this year or just looking to upgrade?
I’m not saying you have to buy one of these laptops powered by the award-winning NVIDIA GeForce GPUs in order to have a great PC gaming experience but I’m also not-not saying that. I just think that anyone out there who enjoys gaming, and that’s just about everyone who’s taken enough time to find the games they like (there’s something for everyone), would benefit from these best-in-class NVIDIA gaming laptops. Check ’em out at that ‘shop now’ button below!
Bubba Fishing Shears
Bubba just launched a new line of fishing shears which reminds me of a story I heard a few weeks ago when fishing with Capt. Ryan Harrington in St. Pete near the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. He told me when he got married he put 10 pairs of the ‘good kitchen shears’ on his wedding registry because they used to work so much better than what was around. Thankfully, the future is now and Bubba has put those concerns to rest by releasing the best fishing shears on the planet.
These new Bubba fishing shears range from $24 to $34 and you can pick them up by hitting that ‘shop now’ button below!
Rhone Apparel For Men
Why shouldn’t you stop what you’re doing right now and treat yourself to something nice and new? Seriously, what’s stopping you? Nothing. You work hard and you deserve nice things. The Rhone Gramercy Snap Pullover ($138) and the Rhone Commuter Pant Slim – Seasonal Colors ($128) are here to make each day a little better from here on out.
The Rhone Gramercy Snap Pullover is made with quilted fabric for extra warmth and features a snap placket, hand pockets, Grosgrain side notch detail, and it layers perfectly with a coat if it’s absolutely frigid outside. These Rhone Commuter Pant Slim – Seasonal Colors ($128) are a Flex-Knit fabric that’s built to move with your body and they’ll blow away the pants you’re used to.

Black And Silver
Here we’ve got the Leatherman Tread Tempo LT Watch + Multi-Tool ($399) which is an eye-catching wristwatch combined with Leatherman’s amazing multi-tool design. This watch has 28-tools right on your wrist. I remember first seeing their ‘Tread’ years ago when my cousin got the multi-tool bracelet and at the time I thought this was the natural evolution. Basically, each link in the watch strap represents a different tool. The full list of tools includes screwdrivers, Hex Drivers, a bottle opener, socket drive adapters, carbide glass breaker, and all sorts of wrench sizes. 28 tools right on your wrist! And it’s made at Leatherman’s factory in Portland.

Unique Seawool Sweater And Pants
Within the realm of wool, it’s hard to top Merino Wool which has temperature regulating and anti-microbial properties but that’s precisely what makes this Seawool collection so cool. Wellen has launched their comfortable Seawool collection (Sweater + Pants) which uses a blend of 50% Seawool, 20% viscose, 20% nylon, 10% wool and the Seawool is made using upcycled oyster shells.
If you’ve got salt in your veins then this is a no-brainer. The Wellen Seawool Collection includes their Seawool Fisherman Sweater ($128) and the Seawool Easy Chinos ($98). You can pair them together or make the sweater your go-to everyday sweater and the pants can be your chilling out chinos. The blended Seawool fabric is shockingly similar to Merino Wool in form and function.

Too Good To Pass By
Here we’ve got the Adidas Ultra 4D ‘Social Status’ sneakers ($350ish) which you’ll have to head on over to eBay to find. I’ve been eyeballing these all weekend. I recently purchased these adidas Ultra 4D’s in the Oreo colorway and they’re the most comfortable shoes I’ve bought in years. This ‘Social Status’ colorway fits my personal style perfectly. I simply cannot stop myself from buying these. And I just wanted to put them on your radar as well.

HitchFire Trailer Hitch-Mounted Grill
I grew up in the Boy Scouts and our camping trips were exactly as you’d expect but when I’d go camping with the family we’d always go all-out with the food. Lobster tails and steak by the campfire. It’s almost as if my parents took whatever money they might be saving by camping instead of staying in a hotel and spent it all on decadent food and wine. So when I see the incredible HitchFire Trailer-Hitch Mounted Grill it reminds me of childhood and firing up Surf-N-Turf at the state parks.
The ultimate tailgating and camping flex is a custom or high-end trailer but for the rest of us normal people who can’t afford a second mortgage on a sick camper, there are still plenty of ways to live the luxurious life. The HitchFire Trailer-Hitch Mounted Grill ($449) is one of those luxuries that cost maybe half of what your tent or sleeping bag might cost. I’m not saying it’s cheap, it’s not, those other camping essentials can just be expensive AF.
Keeping Busy And Staying Comfy
The Fourlaps Level Half-Zip ($98) in Light Grey Heather has been a personal favorite of mine over the past few months. I typically wear this when I’m walking the dog in the mornings and working on the couch but I also ran a 10K in it not too long ago. It’s made with 37.5® fibers ‘which use activated particles to vent heat in warm conditions and retain it when it’s cold, improving your body’s efficiency up to 26%.’ And it’s generally just a great layer.

Pappy & Co. Cocktail Mixer, Hot Sauce, Maple Syrup, And Coffee
There’s been an awful lot of chatter on the whiskey forums lately with people bragging about hitting the Pappy lottery and as someone who has never come close to owning a bottle of Pappy (yet) because it simply does not exist in my neck of the woods, I’m jealous. I’ve had Pappy, sure, but I’ve never had the luxury of pulling it off my own shelves and sipping it whenever I want.
Alas, I can get my fix (or whet my appetite depending on my perspective) with these awesome releases from Pappy & Co. which includes their Bourbon Barrel-Aged Old Fashioned Cocktail Mixer, Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup, Pappy Barrel-Aged Pepper Sauce (2 pack), and Bourbon Barrel-Aged Coffee.
The Bourbon Barrel-Aged Old Fashioned Cocktail Mixer ($20) which is a ready-to-go old fashioned mixer with the bitters, sugar, and orange peel already mixed in. You just add the whiskey. The Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup ($38) which as you can imagine is absolutely delicious on pancakes, waffles, and bacon. All of these items are aged in Pappy van Winkle charred oak barrels.

Essentials For Living Your Best Life
The The High Sierra Shirt by California Cowboy ($148) in ‘Playa Frio’ is handsewn in Santa Ana, California. One cool feature of this shirt is it has a dry pocket with water-resistant construction and hydrophobic zipper protect your phone from splashes and spills. There’s also a lot hidden under the hood with this shirt as it includes a beer koozie, bottle opener, and stack of conversation starter cards.

The Pike Pocket Knife
The Pike is a super limited-edition pocket knife from The James Brand that I needed you gentlemen to know about before it’s gone. Only 300 of the Rosewood Brass model were made and they’ll be gone in no time. In addition to the Rosewood-Brass Pike model, there’s also Black on Black model with a handle made from ‘G10’ which is a high-pressure fiberglass composite. The blacked-out model might actually be my favorite of this new line of Pike Pocket Knives from The James Brand ($120).
The one thing that might trip you up about The Pike pocket knife is the price tag of $120 but this is truly a world-class tool that’s built for superior edge retention and can be used every day and passed down to the next generation.
