This weekly feature is a round-up, in conjunction with our friend Tim over at Cool Material, of the hot new products appearing online this week. From fashion tips to cool gadgets and gear, take a look at your new obsessions.
Whiskey Soaked Campfire Beef Jerky
The folks behind the jerky soak the beef overnight in Bulleit Bourbon (approve) and then slow smoke it with Texas pecan wood that gives it a campfire-like flavor (also approve). In other words: It’s perfect.
Best Made Strongboxes
Best Made products generally tend to be just that. After axes, aprons, notebook covers, jackets and a toolbox, Best Made turned their attention to all the small items sitting on the dresser or desk that needed a place to go. Knives, watches, cufflinks, mementos, knickknacks, you name it. As long as it’s small enough to fit in the 6″ or 9″ Strongbox, it has a home.
Kettle Thermo Jug
We’re not the only people who make a pot of coffee for one, right? A single cup isn’t going to cut it and multiple trips to the kitchen are annoying. The issue is, that pot of coffee gets cold, or at least lukewarm, before we even get close to finishing it. The Kettle Thermo Jug is a stylish coffee vessel that keeps hot beverages hot for hours.
Cool Material Shop
Checkout on new markdowns in the Cool Material Shop. These products won’t last forever, so browse around, and save on pocket knives, drink accessories, home goods and other awesome accessories that’ll be your new favorite companion to kick-off 2014.
Incredible Men Playing Cards
We already have more decks of cards than we could ever need to play the most massive game of poker ever. That said, we’d gladly make room in our collection for this set from Tomski & Polanski. An homage to the feats of man, the deck of cards is a sharp way of showing off a bit of brawn and ingenuity.
Airport Pillow Covers
f you’re a frequent flyer, these pillows are made for you. Each polyester pillow cover displays a different airport’s IATA code along with other information. Choose from Frankfurt, LAX, or another of your favorite terminal stomping grounds.
Bacon 24/7: Cookbook
If you’ve got a lifetime ticket on the bacon bandwagon, may we suggest Bacon 24/7 as your next read. The 172-page book is packed with greasy goodness. It includes recipes for bacon-related dishes like Apple Pie with Bacon Streusel and Bacon-Wrapped Beef Tenderloin and also offers info on curing and smoking bacon at home as well.
To the layman, the Sony A5000 is a cool looking, interchangeable lens mirrorless digital camera with a 3″ LCD screen, 1080p video, 20.1Mp sensor and built-in NFC Wi-Fi. But if you’re a layman you’re probably not spending $600 on a camera, so we’re going to geek out a little bit on the specs.
