A big juice box for adventures – the Goal Zero Yeti 1000X

Yesterday, we told you about a portable wind turbine that can be used while you’re out camping, or even at home for emergencies. What if you want an even bigger battery, something to last you for a full week while out in the wilds, or even for an extended power outage? This is something I’ve been more interested in since our derecho event last summer, and the Goal Zero Yeti 1000X looks like it could cover a lot of bases.

In Review: Alpina AlpinerX Alive

In my mind, it was not all that long ago that I reviewed the first version of the Alpina AlpinerX – but it was. Just about 2.5 years ago, to be precise. In the watch world that doesn’t necessarily mean a long lapse of time, but in the tech and gadget world, that’s a much different story.

Pelican V200 Case – Indestructable and Affordable

The Pelican V200 Case is a burly, fully featured briefcase sized case, priced affordably, and appealing to gun owners and enthusiasts on a budget looking for a case that won’t break the bank, but will give solid performance. I put the V200 case through its paces in the slushy spring in the foothills of the Colorado rocky mountains.

Built for hard use, high impact and supreme weather resistance, new Vault series gun cases are the most rugged and secure in their class. Equipped with a host of premium protective features at a price more hunters and shooters can afford, as only the 42-year veteran of hard knocks could deliver.

Das Keyboard 4C Tenkeyless (TKL): My favorite keyboard now comes minimized

Right now I’m clicking away on a DasKeyboard that I’ve had for almost six years. It’s a wonderful keyboard, click as the day is long, and wildly comfortable. I’ve tried others – including a failed affair with a 60% keyboard that left me wanting – and I’ve always come back to Das.
