Slalom-Sled

The maneuverability of an upside down trashcan lid is fairly minimal. That’s not all that surprising since it was designed to lay motionless atop piles of holiday wrapping paper and not propel your ass down a hill after some eggnog. Now that we think about it, not many sleds were designed with movement in mind at all, which is why for avoiding pesky things like rocks, trees and puffy coated children this holiday season, we’re planning on hopping on one of these Slalom Sleds from Mountain Boy Sledworks. The front section of the sled pivots allowing you to have a better option than bailing when approaching an obstacle. Made from molded plywood along with plastic runners, the Slalom Sled is exactly what you need to make all the kids jealous this year (just don’t use it as a lid for your garbage).

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
