Suga Wetsuits Yoga Mat

What happens to old, worn wetsuits? Well, they usually end up in landfills, but if they’re lucky, they end up becoming a Suga Yoga Mat. Suga recycles old wetsuits into a soft, cushiony, surface for your yoga practice. Eventually, when it’s time for retirement (the mat, not you), it can be recycled. And, for $20 more, Suga’s C2G Mat offers you a replacement when your mat wears out- for life.

Document Tote

Briefcase schmiefcase, who wants to lug around a bag that looks like it holds the nuclear codes? Well, maybe some people do, but for those of us that would rather look effortless, there’s the Document Tote. It will do the job of carrying our 15″ or 13″ laptop all in a very succinct sort of package- there’s no straps or exterior pockets, just two interior pockets for the usual accessories. Made of vegan leather, you have your pick of black, cream, or caramel.

Lumos Helmet

If you’re a smart cyclist, you’re going to try to be as visible as you can be at night. This helmet will certainly help, as it integrates lights, brakes and turn signals. That’s right, it’s a smart helmet; the rear lights automatically turn red when you slow down and the turn lights are activated by a small remote on your handlebars. Sounds great, right?

Nomu Vacuum Flask

All flasks are not equal, as you may be aware. Some leak, some do not keep hot beverages hot, some look atrocious… you know the story.

Flavor and aroma are preserved, so you’ll get the full enjoyment of your coffee/tea/rocket fuel hours after you first pour it in.

Beach Canvas Tote

Which way to the beach? Everyone will follow you if you’re carrying this tote, because it’s the ideal size for your towel, sunscreen, snacks, and paperback.

A waxed coating keeps the bottom protected; choose between Natural or Dark Navy.

Wicker Lunch Box

Okay, so maybe this isn’t the highest quality lunch box/bag you’ll find (look at the price), but you might as well trick your eyes into thinking you’re on a picnic, because then you’ll enjoy that sandwich just a tiny bit more. Of course, do be sure to note that this is a wicker printed soft lunch box, and not actually a wicker lunch box. There’s also a Wicker Wine Cooler for boozier lunch/evening occasions. You can even get the Picnic Fun Pack ($18) which includes the box and cooler along with a zipper bag (that looks like a Mason Jar) and some Buoy Bag Clips.

MagLock Sunglasses

Oh, this is such a smart idea, and I hope it starts a trend. The MagLock Sunglasses have magnets embedded into their frame so that they ‘clip’ onto your shirt instead of falling off. No more worrying about losing your shades! No more scratched lenses! Wonderful, right? The magnets also mean you can attach the frames to any magnetic surface (even a thumbtack). Here’s hoping they expand the frame selection soon, but for now there’s two safe styles to pick from. There’s also a fun Origami hard case to store your glasses ($14).

House Power Station Cable Holder

For a long name, this little block of wood doesn’t do much other than hold your cable in place and look cute. But perhaps that’s plenty enough? A slot alongside the bottom of the house lets your cable pass through, yet keeps it from falling off. Uncomplicated.

Laundry Punch Bag

Get your frustrations out and then do your laundry. This punch bag is a heck of a lot cheaper than a real punching bag, and might just motivate you to keep your dirty laundry all in one place. Sure, it’s a little silly, but it’s also a kind of fun. Hang it in the closet or in the corner of a bedroom for easy access.

Flavour It Glass Water Bottle

Like a bit of lemon or mint in your water glass? Or perhaps a hint of strawberry? Now you can take your fanciness on the road with this glass bottle, thus reducing your own plastic bottle usage as well as that snobbery that crops up whenever you’re faced with plain tap water. I’m sure you’ll get creative with infusions, as it’d be hard not to try all sorts of fruits and flavors while you stay hydrated.

Picnic Tote Blanket

If you like picnics and have an extra $250 lying around, have I got the tote for you. Menu’s Picnic Tote Blanket starts off as a tote bag for your wine and snacks, but with a little unfolding, it becomes a soft blanket with a water-repellent layer underneath. Handy, huh?
