The TomTom Golfer 2 GPS Smart Watch, Hidden iPhone Booze Flask, And 10 More ‘Things We Want’ This Week
It’s time again for my weekly ‘Things We Want’ feature, a round up of all the awesome gear for bros that I came across in my travels across the web. Some of the stuff I plan on buying for myself, other things are crazy expensive and I wouldn’t be able to afford them in my wildest dreams. But that’s why this is call the ‘Things We Want This Week’, and not the ‘Things We’re Getting For Ourselves This Week’, because we all need to know what the latest and greatest aspirational items are on the market, right?
Also, 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 Cass @ Brobible dot com. And for those of you looking to have us test out products to be featured here you can contact me via that email for our mailing address.
Bros, today I want to tell you all about the greatest smart watch in the wide world of golf, the TomTom Golfer 2. Full disclosure, TomTom actually sent me one of these a few months back before it hit the market so I could field test it myself. I just want you to know that if I didn’t like this product I would’ve been 100% upfront about that and told you bros to stay away, but the exact opposite is true, this has completely changed my golf game for the better and I think that anyone who is serious about shaving strokes off of his or her golf game needs to SERIOUSLY consider purchasing the TomTom Golfer 2.
So what’s it all about? Well, the TomTom Golfer 2 is a GPS-enabled smartwatch built specifically for golfers. It comes with over 40,000 golf courses worldwide pre-loaded onto the watch, and it basically works like this: when you step up to the first tee you choose your course and press ‘start your round’, after that it will register all of your strokes and act as a scorecard, but that’s the least awesome thing the TomTom Golfer 2 does.
The GPS follows you around the course. So let’s say you’re on a dogleg right and there’s water up ahead, the watch will actually show you a map of the hazards as well as the distance to lay up, the distances to the green, and the pins. It will show you were the bunkers are on the course, hidden water hazards, and best shot locations. If you often play new golf courses and aren’t always familiar with the terrain then this is a 100% MUST BUY, because it will immediately shave strokes off of your game.
Having played several rounds with this watch on my wrist I can tell you bros that my biggest concern was wearing a watch would hinder my flexibility, and having a watch on my wrist would be bothersome. Well that’s 100% not the case, and the TomTom Golfer 2 has already knocked a handful of strokes off my handicap (something I was in dire need of). So if you’re serious about golf then click that ‘but it here’ link below and pick up yours today!

The All New ‘Vesper Polo’ By Mack Weldon
Bros, in the past I’ve written at length about how much I love Mack Weldon as a company. They make some of the industry best boxer briefs and socks for men. Seriously, I wear their no-show socks almost every single day of my life. So when I heard that they were releasing a polo shirt for the first time my interest was most certainly piqued. All I can really say is STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING and buy the Vesper Polo from Mack Weldon now, because it is the PERFECT warm weather shirt.
The timeless/classic style of a polo shirt combined with a micro-mesh fabric that breathes to keep you cool AND more importantly it keeps you dry. As someone living down in Florida melting in the daily 95-degree temperatures with 80-90% humidity jacking the ‘feels like’ temp up to 110-115 every single day I can tell you that the Vesper Polo is a God send, and I’d recommend this shirt to my own father because it’s that good.
The Vesper Polo from Mack Weldon’s only been on the market for a week now and I’m already stocking up so I can wear this every day, and I invite you bros to join me by clicking that ‘BUY IT HERE’ link below. This shirt comes in 4 colors at the moment: Kentucky Blue, White, Total Eclipse Blue, and Black…4 colors that are perfect for every occasion. Now if you’re ready to fix your wardrobe and pick up your new favorite follow just follow that link below!
I don’t know you, and I don’t know what your specific drinking needs are. However, I do know that most bros can use a flask in disguise, for drinking at times when it’s not completeley socially acceptable. Few things are more inconspicuous than an iPhone, so if you want to drink without raising any eyebrows then THIS is your flask.
— Technology hipsters: heads-up! Here’s the freshest, must-have gadget in your collection: introducing the iDrink Phone Flask by Parody Products
— Ingeniously designed to be sleek and discreet, this modern day Phone Flask holds up to a cheeky 4.5 ounces of your favorite libation

You know what bros, political correctness be damned, these are just downright hilarious and perfect for the sophomoric shenanigans of the golf course. The course is a place to have a great time and not be burdened by the outside world, so if you like to laugh and think these are as funny as I do then be my guest and pick up a 10-pack today.

Bros, if you’re serious about drinking then you also need to be serious about your drinking ware. A TRUE Moscow Mule requires a copper mug, but the issue there is copper mugs are often expensive as hell. That’s why you need to hop on this sale before it ends, because this set of copper mugs that typically retails for $77 is on sale for just $27.
This amazing contraption was featured here on BroBible by my colleague Chris Illuminati, so I’ll let him explain this badass invention in his own words:
Everyone is chugging Starbucks to get through the 9am meeting but you need something a little bit stronger. Stronger in alcohol, not caffeine.
Check out these amazing beer holders from Lolo Lid.
Like cold beer? Want to hide what you’re drinking? Hate drinking from a can? You need a Lolo Lid! A Lolo lid looks like any other coffee cup lid with the difference being you can snap a can into the bottom of it. Pop it on any large coffee cup and you’ve got an instant stealth cozy.
The ergonomically designed spout and secondary airflow aperture provide an experience similar to drinking from a glass rather than a can. Specially designed snaps and a gasket provide a water tight seal that holds your drink firmly in place while suspending it inside the cup. This forms an air barrier keeping your drink of choice cold longer than a foam koozie and hands warm in the winter.
Lolo Lids will work with both regular and tall boy cans. The lids are the same dimensions as a Solo lid so they will fit almost any cup provided it is large enough to house a beer. Best of all, when your done simply recycle your cup and can and a Lolo Lid easily fits in your pocket or purse for future use.
Never leave the house unprepared again!
The company is sure to state that they “do not condone any illegal activity” and “always use responsibly” but forget the fact they make a product that has only one purpose — to hide beer. LOL indeed.
This comprehensive book will teach you how America’s National Parks came into existence and the history of America’s greatest treasures. If you’re looking for some Summer reading then look no further than this:
Completely revised for its fourth edition, National Parks: The American Experience tells the highly engaging story of how Americans invented and expanded the concept of national parks. A prominent adviser to the Ken Burns Emmy Award-winning documentary, “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” Alfred Runte is renowned as the nation’s leading historian on the meaning and management of these treasured lands. Lavishly illustrated with period photographs, including eight pages of color paintings, National Parks: The American Experience has never been more beautiful or profound. This remains a stirring look into the lands that define America, from Yosemite and Yellowstone to wilderness Alaska. This is how we got our parks, and yes, how we have occasionally failed them, and when doing so how we have failed ourselves. “Civilization is the problem parks solve,” Runte writes. At times, the national parks may seem as imperfect as they are exceptional; the point is that they are all we will ever have. Knowing that earlier America, and planning for the new America, still demands our humility to advance the best of both.
Yesterday Nintendo America announced on Twitter that they will be re-releasing the classic Nintendo NES console, the gaming console of my childhood, and the machine that basically taught me everything I know about gaming.
the NES Classic Edition will come with THIRTY games pre-loaded onto the machine (there’s a complete list of the games below). It also appears to be significantly smaller in size than the NES of our childhoods.
As noted on Twitter the Nintendo NES Classic Edition will hit stores on 11/11, presumably they mean this year, so we’re looking at a sales date of November 11, 2016 for when the NES Classic to hit shelves, and it will retail for $59.99. This is a HUGE product announcement for Nintendo, whose stock is already up 25% after the launch of Pokemon Go
