Dymaxion Folding Globe

Dymaxion Folding Globe

Snowe Bath Towels

Snowe Bath Towels
If you need to refresh your bath towels, you need to look at Snowe's offerings. I ended up buying their Starter Bathe Bundle last year* and I can honestly say they're the nicest towels I've ever owned. They're soft and lightweight, and soo much better than the top-of-the-line towels I used to buy from you know where. I am still impressed with the quality, so much so that I ended...Read more

X-Cap Light Up Hat

X-Cap Light Up Hat
Headlight plus hat? Sign me up, because who knows what outdoor exploring we'll be up to when the winter evenings are here? The removable head lamp clips into and out of the beanie so you can charge (via USB) the 120-lumen light. I'd say this is an improvement over single strap headlamps, as the beanie is less likely to slip off the ol' noggin, don't you think? One Size Fits...Read more

Cinto Lounge Chair

Cinto Lounge Chair
I know, I know, it's tough to find the right lounge chair. Sometimes they're waaay too expensive, and sometimes they look like they're fit more for a college dorm than a mostly responsible adult's living space. So, let's look at the Cinto: it has a safari-plus-Danish vibe that suits our sort of style and the white leather is a little daring (not recommended if you have kids that run around...Read more
