Even the most novice DIY'er knows the hassle of switching back and forth between a drill bit and a driver. The Worx Switchdriver makes the process easier than ever. It has a rotating head with two 1/4 inch chucks — one for your bit, and one for your driver. Since neither bit has to be removed, you can drill a hole, rotate the head, and sink the screw in a single step. Its 20V lithium battery provides roughly two hours of use per charge, and the integrated LED light lets you work anytime, day or night.
Designed by a school-aged kid looking to keep her digits intact by avoiding axes, the Kindling Cracker can create ideal fire-starting slivers of wood using nothing more than a mallet. You just slip a six-inch or smaller diameter log through the top, then use a hammer, mallet, or even another piece of wood to drive it down onto the splitting head. It weighs just 11 pounds, so it's easy to bring along to the campsite, has mounting holes for more permanent installation, and is crafted in Australia from high-quality cast iron, so it'll last for generations.
Multi-tools are a staple of nearly every EDC kit. They also take up room in your pockets. The Leatherman Tread Wearable Multi-Tool moves the tools — and the ensuing bulge — from your pants to your wrist. Made from high-strength 17-4 stainless steel, it features multiple individual links that perform two or three jobs each, giving you a total of 25 tools including drivers, a cutting hook, box wrenches, a glass breaker, and the obligatory bottle opener. Available with a natural silver or black DLC finish.

Most CNC machines are huge. The Shaper Origin CNC Machine is small enough to fit in a cabinet. The world's first hand-held CNC machine, it uses an innovative interface to let you make precise cuts without robotic assistance. You simply move the machine, following the shape outlines on the display, and it does the rest. It will automatically retract if you go off course and gently auto-corrects when you wander, resulting in cuts that are within 1/100 inch of your intended path. On-board drawing tools let you work computer-free, a dust extraction port makes cleanup a breeze, and since it's a hand tool, it can work on nearly any size of material, something normal CNC's can't claim.

The drive for continuous improvement is a great way to describe The Yosemite from Taylor Stitch. It's a shirt they've spent endless hours trying to perfect, and it's probably the best garment they've ever made. What started off as a classic outdoor flannel has morphed into a shirt that's as tough as it is comfortable, and versatile enough to wear on a hike or out to dinner. Sourced from a mill that has specialized in flannel for the past 80 years, the ultra-soft, cotton chamois fabric weighs in at a solid 9 ounces. The Blackwatch Plaid puts off an iconic vibe, and the Yosemite is also available in the original Navy from it's launch 5 years ago as well as Turquoise and Wild Lupine to conjure up some vintage outdoors ephemera.

When the weekend hits, you never know what kind of jobs will demand your attention around the house. The Slide Cartridge Screwdriver from Craftsman can stand up to most of those tasks, featuring a Twist and Go Cartridge that holds 6 bits. The litium-ion battery charges in 3-5 hours but there is no self-discharge when you aren't using it, so it's ready to go when you need it. You also get a easy-to-hold, rubbery handle grip and an LED sight light for visibility in dark places.
Designed to use your finger as leverage, the Nug Knuckle Knife is as useful for common tasks as it is for defense. Combining a heat-treated S35VN steel blade with a G5 titanium body, this rugged tool has an 18mm blade that, thanks to its robust construction and your sure grip, can handle everything from opening letters to cutting tennis balls with ease. It measures roughly 2.2 inches by 1.2 inches and is less than half an inch thick, so it's easily pocketable, and without the blade deployed, will protect your knuckles in the event you need to defend yourself with a fist instead of a knife.
Traversing tough terrain on two wheels can be tricky. That's why the Rungu Electric Juggernaut Bike has three. As well suited to off-road adventures as it is to commuting, it has three knobby wheels — two in the front and an extra-chubby one in the back — to give you superior control in adverse conditions. It's also got a 2,100 Watt motor with a 20 mile range, so you don't have to work the pedals quite as hard, an aluminum frame to reduce weight, and a display for letting you know your speed (it's capped at 20 mph), power consumption, and available battery.

Powered by an all-new 154 hp turbocharged Rotax engine, the Can-Am Maverick X3 ATV is far from your average four-wheeler. This side-by-side is capable of hitting 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds, and has a lightweight, welded chassis that's 12" longer than the competition to give it great handling. Up to 15" of ground clearance lets you travel over the roughest terrain, and it's available in a variety of packages, from the base X3 to the flagship X3 X rs Turbo R in our favorite available color, triple black.
You don't think about your suitcase until it's time to travel. But when that time comes, you'd better have something lightweight, good-looking, and easy to pack. Away Carry-On Luggage has you covered though, with a hardshell exterior made of strong, tough German polycarbonate. You also get a TSA-approved combo lock, YKK zippers, premium interior mesh, 360° Hinomoto double-wheel spinners, and a removable, washable laundry bag to keep your dirty stuff away from the stuff you haven't worn yet. And on top of all that, the Carry-On has 10,000 mAh charger for your smartphone or tablet to keep you connected during a long day of travel.

Not every jobsite has ample lighting. Make sure you can get your task done with the DeWalt 20V MAX Handheld LED Light. This compact tool runs for up to 11 hours using the same 20V MAX 2.0Ah Lithium Ion battery as the company's drills, drivers, and saws, and outputs a consistent 160 lumens from the time you turn it on until it runs out of juice. It also has a pivoting head so you can aim it directly on your work area, and thanks to a kickstand, beltclip, and integrated magnets, it's easy to mount no matter what the situation.
Designed by architect Harry Gesner to be both beautiful and portable, the Autonomous Tent is an eco-conscious way to enjoy the outdoors. Available in two sizes — the 700 sq ft Cocoon and the 1,000 sq ft Tipi — these shelters can be set up or taken down in a matter of days, with a curved design that features strong frames made from steel, aluminum, or laminated beams, and translucent fabric shells engineered to handle winds of up to 90 mph and heavy loads of snow. They sit on wooden decks, so they don't need a foundation, and they can easily hook in to available utilities or, if necessary, can be outfitted with solar panels, composting systems, grey water systems, and other equipment that allow them to operate off-grid.
Created to celebrate English saddle maker Brooks' 150th anniversary, the Schindelhauer x Brooks Ludwig VIII Bike is a striking mix of new and old. The bike's lightweight aluminum frame is finished in a subtle matte black, which lets the classic copper details standout. Those include the rivets on the Cambium C15 saddle, the rings on the ends of the matching Brooks grips, and the seat clamp and dropouts. A highly collectible bike that's as pleasurable to ride as it is to behold.
"Drive for show, putt for dough" is more than just a tired cliché — a good day on the greens can lower your score dramatically, while a bad day can sabotage an otherwise solid round. The DT Smart Putting Training Aid is designed to help you have more of the former and less of the latter. Integrated into its stainless steel head is a surface level that will show you the slope of the green simply by setting it flat on the ground. Just adjust your stance based on the break, and hit. Over time you'll get better and better at reading greens, which will translate to lower scores and, if you're the betting type, maybe even some extra "dough" in your pockets.
Highly compact but still powerful, the Yshoot Sport Pack Slingshot is a reliable weapon that fits in your pocket. It's built from polycarbonate and weighs just 1.6 oz, including the elastic bands, and has a loader attached to the handle that uses magnets to keep the stainless steel marbles in place until you're ready to shoot. The unique design means it doesn't need the customary armrest, and it arrives with a pair of bands and a pouch to keep everything together.

You're already using your phone to keep track of your fishing. Why not let it help you find the fish, too? FishHunter Pro is a Wi-fi enabled gadget that floats on the surface of the water, giving you real-time sonar information in an easy-to-understand interface. It can find fish as far down as 150 feet, has a range of 160 feet, a battery life of up to 10 hours, and can handle temperatures down to -22 degrees, making it suitable for ice fishing, as well.
Unless you're a geologist, odds are you won't have a serious need for the Brunton Axis Pocket Transit — but that doesn't mean you won't want it. With a rare earth magnet mounted on a sapphire jewel suspension, the built-in compass is no joke, and would be handy for any outdoorsman. But its the dual 360-degree axis, hollow hinge design that makes it useful for scientists, letting them accurately measure planes, lines, and vertical angles with ease. It also packs an on-board level, a needle locking mechanism, a hollow sighting tube, and has a waterproof, rugged anodized aluminum build.
When you're a frequent traveler, every little pound you can shave off your load helps. Which is why Zero Halliburton ZRO Luggage is designed to be as light as possible. It's made from lightweight, shock-resistant Makrolon polycarbonate, with structural ribs for added strength and a scratch-resistant texture. Also on the outside are dual spinner wheel at each end for maneuverability and an Lock Cover that protects both the combination wheels and the zipper pulls, while inside are two fully-lined compartments with multiple pockets for organization. Available in three different hues and four sizes, ranging from 20-inch carry-on to a 28-inch travel case.
When it comes to urban transport, electric bikes are a great alternative to cars. Unfortunately, they tend to be cumbersome, either too large or too heavy to fit on other public transportation or bring into the office or apartment. The Tern Elektron E-Bike is neither. It's the result of a collaboration with Bosch, whose German-engineered drivetrain and battery power the bike, enabling a maximum range of up to 100 km. A trio of sensors takes thousands of measurements a minute, adjusting boost on the fly, and the entire bike folds down in under ten seconds, letting it easily slip onto the subway or into a trunk for out-of-town use.
You keep track of your health, your daily activity, and your finances on your phone. Why not your fishing excursions as well? The Anglr Fishing Tracker is a rod-mounted, Bluetooth-enabled box designed to do exactly that. Using a series of sensors, it automatically logs how many times you cast, where, when, and how many fish you catch, your reeling behaviors, cast direction, and fight time, so if you land the big one in an epic, multi-hour battle, you'll finally have the data to back it up.

Coming up with a minimalist design normally requires removing things. The Evo 43 Yacht challenges that notion by offering all the features you want, but keeping them hidden from view. Inside the clean deck hide the cleats, anchor, and fenderhooks, and at the touch of a button, the rear beach area extends out in three directions, giving you more room to relax, entertain, and enjoy the water. Downstairs, there's a V-shaped dining area that transforms into a double bed, and a wood and ceramic bathroom, while a separate entry on the opposite side leads to a double cabin and storage area. Three engine options are available, letting you hit speeds of up to 38 knots while exploring up to 300 nautical miles per tank.
Football season is upon us, which means everyone clamoring for NFL-approved gear. With the Wilson X Connected Football, your backyard ball can be better than the ones the pros use. It's laden with sensors to deliver metrics like velocity, distance traveled, spin rate (RPMs), spiral efficiency, and a composite score that gives you an at-a-glance read on each throw. The app also lets you play out real-life scenarios like last-minute drives by applying your scores to a game simulation featuring real NFL teams and players. And unlike most smart gadgets, this one doesn't need a charge, instead running for up to 200,000 throws before it becomes just another pigskin in your garage.
