For the paranoid: The Otto Lock
Just because you’re paranoid don’t mean they’re not after your stuff.
But the Otto Lock will stop them—and it won’t weigh you down. This convenient lightweight lock rolls up to fit in your pocket, but it’s strong as all hell. Kevlar-reinforced steel is layered inside the lock’s cinching bolt, preventing most cutters from getting through. And because it winches tight, the Otto Lock leaves little room for thieves to wiggle in bolt cutters or wiggle out loose items.
Oh… and it’s made here in the U.S. The Otto Lock is available for pre-order now. Locks come in three sizes, and start at $50.
For your Main(e) man: Flowfold wallets and bags
At Flowfold, its right in their tagline: “Minimalist gear for the everyday adventurer.” Isn’t that who we are? Every day is an adventure right?
That’s why we really loved Flowfold. It starts with their perspective and translates to their innovative, lightweight duffels. The inspiration for their materials comes from founder Charlie Friedman’s leather wallet falling apart while working for a sail loft on Main’s coast. From scrap sailcloth material and a need for a new wallet, he sewed himself a new one. Then he made one for his friends. And then…you get the picture.
Flowfold’s wallets and bags are all made from those same lightweight, durable materials. Also, guess what? Made right here again in the U.S. of A. All of the company’s products can be purchased online.
For wizards: The Hydralight
The Hydralight won the show’s innovation category, and it’s not hard to see why. The flashlight gets its electricity from… water. That’s right.
The Australian team behind the Hydralight has created a reusable cell that can be recharged just by dipping it in some water. requires simply a dip in some water to recharge it. But don’t throw out your AAAs just yet… it’s only available in the Hydralight flashlight for now.
