If you’re an avid Cool Material reader, Chris Burkard is probably a name you’re familiar with. The adventure photographer has been mentioned numerous times around these parts, as he’s amassed a loyal following of some 2 million fans on Instagram. For all the traveling Burkard does, he needs a ride up to the task. So, to traverse the country, Burkard tapped Advanture Co., a California-based outfit that turns old vans into superior adventure machines. What started as a 2006 Sprinter ended up as one of the slickest travel vans we’ve ever seen. The team outfitted the van with plenty of storage for Burkards photography and travel equipment, a bed, and a killer audio system. A matte green paint job gives the van a military-esque vibe, while a few creature comforts make life on the road managable. You can check out a video to see more about the conversion.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
