As you know, actually acquiring that brand new iDevice (in this case the iPad 2) is only the first step. You have to load it up with apps, fill it with all your favorite movies (all “purchased” legally, of course) and get a sweet ass case for it. After all, you can’t be spending a couple hundred bucks on something you’re inevitably going to drop without giving it the proper protection it requires. Which is where the Grove Bamboo iPad 2 Case comes in. Made of bamboo and CNC milled to exacting specifications, it also includes a vegetable tanned leather cover that’s “smart” enough to wake up and sleep your iPad. If you’re looking to spice up your specific case, there’s also a laser engraved artist series which presumably includes, well, laser leather engraving. This is one case as awesome as the device it’s designed to hold – even if neither is out yet.

 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.
