It drives on the highway. It uses regular gas. It fits in normal parking spots. And it flies. The AeroMobil Flying Car is aiming to be a complete solution for door-to-door travel, as it converts back and forth between airplane and car in just seconds. It's powered by a Rotax 912 engine, offers two seats, and is based on a steel framework with an advanced composite shell, wings, and wheels. It has a top speed of 124 mph in the air and 99 mph on the ground, a take-off speed of 81 mph, and a range of 435 miles in the air and 545 on the ground, or more than enough to get you from SF to LA without hitting I-5 once.
While it does sport a vintage style, Tumi 1975 Luggage doesn't necessarily ape bags from the mid-70s. Instead, the number refers to the year of the company's founding, a fact that's celebrated with the collection's carry-on, rucksack, duffel, travel kit, and luggage tag, as well as the full-grain leather and ballistic nylon construction. Designed and made in the US. Limited to just 1,975 pieces.

If you've ever been to a wedding or some other formal event, odds are you know the hell that is renting a tuxedo. Or hell that was, rather, thanks to The Black Tux, the first tuxedo and suit rental company that just doesn't feel like one. They make it quick and easy to rent a high-quality suit by letting you enter your measurements (or go to a tailor) and select an outfit online. One week before your event, your tux will arrive, giving you enough time to try it on to ensure a great fit. When you're done, simply drop it back in the mail. The best part? Thanks to the lack of a middleman, you'll be wearing a $1000+ suit for a much lower price.

Odds are you're packing a flashlight in your adventuring bag anyway. Why not add some booze to the mix?

In between you'll find a hidden compartment holding two collapsible shot cups and a bottle opener, and there's even a compass in the end cap, making this a versatile choice for the drinking outdoorsman.
