Fire is awesome. It’s one of the most significant discoveries in all of human history and the ability to create it on demand makes life a whole helluva lot better. It’s a survival skill, a cool party trick and a way to start conversations with pretty girls. Fire itself hasn’t changed, well, at all since the days of the caveman, but the ways to create it have. The BioLite CampStove is the best thing to happen to fire since fire itself. The nalgene bottle sized CampStove uses no fuel. None. Pop out the aluminum legs and fill the compartment with biomass (twigs, basically) and the BioLite does the rest. Through some combination of science and sorcery, it maximizes fire efficiency, reduces waste, greens your outdoor experience AND charges your iPhone or other USB device. This is the greatest thing to happen to camping since the combination of marshmallow, graham cracker and chocolate.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
