Inkleaf-Leather-Co-Field-Notes-Cover

With over fifteen different apps on our phones (and countless more available) for reminders, appointments, notes and to-dos, not to mention e-mail, it’s a wonder that we even interact with paper anymore. And yet, like clockwork, we find ourselves whipping out a pocket notebook to write something down at least a few times a day. If we don’t, those important thoughts always end up lost in the chaos of girls, gear and gadgets. But let’s face it, those pocket notebooks aren’t exactly bulletproof and end up buckling under the weight of back pocket duty like a pair of pants that haven’t fit for years. Inkleaf Leather Co. has a rather ingenious solution—a leather holster for your notebooks. It looks like a wallet, works like a wallet and will actually hold two notebooks, or cards and emergency cash. $70 might seem pricey, but if it saves the “next big thing” idea from getting destroyed it’s money well spent.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
