Combining two products into one perfectly versatile piece of equipment isn’t just good design, it’s an American past time. We’ve perfected the skill of adding bottle openers, knives and bigger engines to everything from wallets to VW Beetles. Now Booq is adding notebooks to that list. With the Booqpaq, your as-of-yet-unreleased iPad2 can be sweetly cradled within Nappa leather available in a number of different colors – right next to a 50 sheet A5 notebook. It might not double as a stand, but along with the notebook it also gives you a pen slot and a place to hold the business cards that could win you free lunches. Booq also had enough foresight to design it ambidextrously so it doesn’t matter which one of your hands gets more of a work out, the Booqpad goes both ways. We’re definitely writing this off on the taxes.

 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.
