The Filson Restoration Department

Filson bags are some of the best that money can buy. They're not the cheapest on the market, but that's because they're handmade in the USA, ridiculously durable, functional and good-looking. We've been inclined to say that they're bags that will last at least one lifetime on more than one occasion, but the fact of ... continue reading

The EDC Pen Designed For Your Keys

We have more every carry pens than we could hope to use in an entire lifetime (quite a few from Kickstarter), but we've still needed to write something down on more than one occasion only to realize there wasn't a pen in our pocket, within arm's reach on our desk or in our car.

“Chappie” Trailer

If you had told us there was a serious movie coming out in 2015 that featured Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Dev Patel and both halves of Die Antwoord, we never would have believed you.
