Slow Watches Review

Slow Watches Review For this review we have gone slightly of piece, I thought I would hand my wife the writing reins and ask her to write her thoughts on this product. The slow watch brand exhorts the value of the mind-set of slow, and they do this through the innovation of their range of one-hand, 24-hour analogue watches. This means the hand moves at half the speed of a conventional watch, and t...[Read More]

Review: BYBLight Rechargeable, Cree T6 LED Flashlight

Over the next few months we plan on taking a look at a few types of light-emitting diode (LED) flashlights that can be purchased on a budget. Who doesn’t like LED’s or flashlights? Combine the 2 you often have a very useful product. Myself for example, I always have one in my commuter work car, my Jeep, the wife’s mini van, and various locations throughout the house. All of which...[Read More]

Review – SUMMIT Vaporizer

Review – SUMMIT Vaporizer I have tried to get into vaporizing for a while now, but found myself always having to sacrifice what I consider “must haves” for a good vaporizer, such as taste, charge and storage. Which was why I was excited to try out the Summit vaporizer from Vapium.com   Along with the Summit, the box also contained a dry bag, cleaning kit, pipe cleaners, and ...[Read More]

Their Polar Loop was released a couple of years back, which included all the tracking potential you could want. Now they have released the new Loop 2, which build upon the solid foundation of the original while throwi...[Read More]

Review: Insulated Sidewinder Bottle from Liquid Hardware

Review: Insulated Sidewinder Bottle from Liquid Hardware As a larger gentleman I am in need of hydration a lot. If I’m doing a long walk, or finishing a difficult piece of writing, I tend to drink a lot of water. Currently I used old bottles, or a big plastic bottle, but due to health risks with BPA and just general germs, I thought there must be a cool alternative. So I came across Liquid H...[Read More]
