col_littleton_no11-1

I am not sure if I should cue the theme to Mission Impossible, Raiders of the Lost Ark, or MacGyver... And we all know if you are considering theme music, it is the start of a fun review. That difficult decision aside, the review item I am discussing is the No. 11 Survival Belt from Colonel Littleton [...]

I saw the HoodiePillow Pillowcase pitched on ABC's Shark Tank last Friday and thought the idea of a hood built into a pillow was a pretty silly idea. I still do. But the same company has another product that isn't so silly and one that I would even use. It's their Travel HoodiePillow. It's a [...]

Triple Aught Design aka TAD recently offered to send me one of their Women's Artemis Hoodies for review. I happily accepted because I've been wanting to try something made from Merino wool for quite a while. This particular jacket takes its name from the fearless female hunter of Greek mythology who used her bow and [...]

shoe-hickies-laces

When my daughter was learning to tie her own shoes, we found some stretchy shoe laces that made it a bit easier for her to get her shoes on her feet without her having to loosen/tighten her laces, too.  The older lady who lived next door wanted some of those laces so she could get [...]

Chewbacca Bath Robe

Another day, another awesome Star Wars item.  Today's offering is a hooded, 100% polyester robe that suspiciously resembles everyone's favorite Wookie.  Although I'm fairly sure it's not a licensed LucasFilms (Disney?) product, it looks pretty accurate, complete with Chewie's bandolier stitched across the chest (front AND back) and large pocket to mimic Chewie's pouch.  A [...]

magnetie

I'm not a man and don't wear neck ties, so I don't know how much suffering has been going on out there as far as ties that flap in the wind or hang haphazardly on your chest. I'm sure it's a tragic condition and for that fact I'm going to offer you the Magnetie solution. [...]

The Scrubba Washbag Review

Any traveller will know the dilemma of balancing the right amount of clothes with the additional weight and space required to carry those clothes.  When bushwalking you're extremely limited with how much you can carry on your back, when motorcycle touring you're constrained by how much you can fit into a tail bag or pack.  [...]
