When traveling, I like to have light versatile products to use when I am out and about touring. While I almost always carry some sort of bag or sack for souvenirs or goodies, they are not waterproof or do not offer a waterproof storage area. The Matador Droplet Wet Bag can solve that issue, it [...]

Fascinations Metal Earth Licensed Models

I will admit that as a young lad I liked building models. As I got older my interest changed and model building went to the back burner. I have toyed with the idea of picking up some models to keep myself occupied, but I just have not found any that seemed interesting. A company called [...]
