Gear of the Week: Issue 005

Madewithover App

Madewithover App
Price: $1.99

Giftshops ain't got shit on you! Never browse through standard landmark pictures again. With the madewithover app, you can transform your own, awesome photos into postcards to send to your family back home using only your iPhone and creativity. How are these different than just sending a picture? Well, you get to add witty, stylized text to make it look authentically postcard-y. Got no wit? We can't help you there.

SplitStick

SplitStick
Price: $1,800

Unless you have cobra superpowers, doing things with just one leg is pretty fucking difficult. Ease your bound-together woes on the slopes with SplitStick, a snowboard that snaps apart and allows your legs to move independently. This way, you can impress the ski-loving cougars and snowboarding bunnies all in one trip.

Shavetech

Shavetech
Price: $39.99

Unless you're going for Sasquatch chic, you'll need some way to weed-wack during long backpacking stints. Rather than reaching for that old school razor, check out the Shavetech, an electric shaver that's way sleeker than your dad's Mach 3. If you're already bringing your iPhone, this thing is about the same size and can be charged using a standard USB port. Just don't mix the two up unless your inner ear needs some trimming.

Guerrilla Pack

Guerrilla Pack
Price: $65

We're already fans of Guerrilla Backpacks. They're sturdy, comfortable, and made with removable laptop cases and day packs. Guerrilla packs are usually reasonably priced but word on the street is that they're selling off some older models for only $65 bucks to make room for the 2013 line coming out this spring. Voltij, Asalto 2.0, Airporter, and Furia 2.0 packs are all sale until they run out.

Folding RayBans

Folding RayBans
Price: $160

Sometimes, no matter how hard you try to avoid it, your ass somehow makes crushing contact with your sunglasses. These RayBans, made with a saddle nose bridge, fold up nicely to fit into your shirt pocket, which reduces your chances of sitting on and/or losing them. Also, and this is only for the snazziest RayBan wearers, you can try sporting them like a new age monocle.
