If you haven’t heard of the Volkswagen Amarok, you’re not alone. It’s the VW pickup truck we don’t get here in the states, and we’re green with envy. That much more so when its built like the special collab with off-road, custom builder Artic Trucks to create the AT35 Concept. The specialized truck was commissioned by Reykjavík, Iceland VW dealer, Hekla. The already rugged and capable body-on-frame Amarok (truck-based, versus car-based unibody trucks) gets properly Frankensteined with increased ride height, beefier wheels and tires, huge fender flares, and a practical bed cap to keep vital goods out of the elements. But it’s more than just a bounding beast. The AT35 Concept is made for expedition-level trips thanks to its portable generator, fire extinguisher, and all-important and sanity-imparting cappuccino machine. This singular Amarok is actually in the throes of snow-tossing customer tours and special off-road jaunts on behalf of the dealership.

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.
