As much as we love modified Land Rovers that have been amped up and blacked out, still nothing compares to a vintage Land Rover that looks like it’s never been updated. That’s where this 1972 Series III comes in, and it’s just about perfect in our eyes. The classic Marine Blue painted aluminum body has aged beautifully, imperfections and all, as has the original interior that has no freakin’ clue what infotainment or satellite navigation are. The biggest change is a new chassis that’s been galvanized to ward off rust. Under the hood is the original modest 2.25-liter inline four-cylinder engine with 60 horsepower and 24,000 miles on the odometer. Though you won’t roast anyone at a stop light, it doesn’t matter since details like caged lights, white steel wheels with MUD X-Tra Traction tires (and a hood-mounted spare), a tailgate-mounted work lamp, and an old-school tugboat rope wrapped around the front bumper will simply slow everyone else down just to ogle.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
