We've come a long way since the days of Jansport and Trapper Keeper, but that doesn't mean backpacks are any less cool. Ignoble takes the concept of putting a bunch of stuff in a compartment with two straps and attaching it to your back to a whole new level with their line of backpacks. Using plenty of 400D high-density ... continue reading
You just spent $300 on a new phone. You loaded it up with music and movies. Then, in an attempt to rock out, you plugged in the headphones that came with it, clicked play and realized they sucked. Who knows, maybe you didn't even get that far because the headphones were too uncomfortable to leave in for more than ... continue reading
We down green drinks, work at standing desks and mess around with kettlebells to stay in shape, but that doesn't mean we don't enjoy knocking a few back at happy hour. Drinkwel is the multivitamin especially designed for guys who drink. The multivitamin was developed by two Berkeley grads to replenish nutrients, support liver health and process alcohol induced toxins so you can feel better about having those Double IPAs after you finish your run. Try it out, and if you aren't satisfied, they'll give you your money back, including shipping. ... check it out

We've come close to the point of bankruptcy on more than one occasion stocking up on all the cool material that graces the pages of this website and lines the halls of Shop Cool Material. Friends and family members have accosted us for "forcing them" to buy another iPhone case, drinking accessory, watch or movie print. ... continue reading
Some movie titles just work better when you add "in bed." We came up with a few new versions of our favorite movies to illustrate our point.
Contest Closed! Congrats to Winston
We're always down for a good "in bed" joke, so we're giving away a $50 gift certificate to ... continue reading
All headphones are not created equal. We know, we know, you just got that sweet pair of free headphones from that booth at *insert any social gathering here*, but there's a problem with them that the cute girl forgot to mention. They suck. At the end of the day, yeah, they're headphones, but they can't produce ... continue reading
Hi, we're the editors at Cool Material and we have a problem. We have an addiction to timepieces. It's a safe bet that if we found out the house was on fire, the first thing on our list of things to save would be the watch box with over 50 watches in it. We're not the types of guys that have one $10k timepiece ... continue reading
It's hard to go a few hours—let alone a lifetime—without Facebook. Unfortunately, that terrible fate is something Queen Elizabeth, Honest Abe and Henry Ford had to suffer through. We can only imagine what it was like for them, but Wylie Overstreet put fingers to keys and channeled history, as told through Facebook ... continue reading

Somewhere between kayaking and surfing exists a whole new pseudo sport known as stand up paddleboarding. While it will certainly end up in the Olympics with bags (cornhole for the purists) by the year 2020, for now it seems like more an aquatic activity. We don't have a problem with that because the concept is ... continue reading

Monday through Thursday, what do you wear to work? If you work in a business casual environment, you probably get out of the shower and throw on the closest pair of khakis or black dress pants and whatever shirt ... continue reading
As we've all probably discovered on more than one occasion, cellphones and tablets aren't immune to gravity. They do everything they're supposed to and some things they're not (if you gave your iDevice a get out of jail free card) amazingly, but until someone figures out a way to make the Panasonic Toughbook equivalent ... continue reading
If we were to ask you what time it was right now, where would you look? Computer? iPhone? Dashboard? iPad? Blackberry? The clock on the building nearest to you? How far down on that list is a watch? Technology makes boring meetings, dinners and car rides fantastically awesome. However, it also makes classically ... continue reading
The laws that govern man are important, but there are a lot of things more important than driving 55mph, not drinking in public and curfew. Man laws like - always having a one urinal buffer, DIYing it if possible, never making eye contact and only ordering coffee in 'Merican sizes aren't the laws that govern us, ... continue reading
