We all carry a water bottle with us — and if we don't, we should — but unless your bag has a dedicated bottle pocket, odds are it just doesn't fit that well. But what if your bottle was designed like something your bag already holds, like a notebook? That's the idea behind the Memobottle. Available in three sizes — Letter, A4, and A5 — these bottles are designed to fit in your bag alongside your books, laptops, tablets, and other rectangle-y things, and hold between 750ml to 1.25L of water. Best of all, they help keep plastic bottles out of landfills, since their dishwasher-safe, BPA-free Tritan construction lets them be reused over and over again.
Sleeping in an above ground nylon cave is all well and good, but if you're looking for a portable shelter that's a bit more substantial, check out the Trakke Jero Tent. Inspired by the yurt, This surprisingly good-looking tent offers a compact pack size and was built in collaboration with designer and adventurer Uula Jero. Features include a flat-pack design, marine plywood walls, stainless steel hardware, a waterproof canvas cover, telescopic roof poles, a removable door, a crown cap, and speedy, tool-free assembly.
Golf is a sport meant to be enjoyed as a long walk around the course. Unfortunately, with all the clubs, balls, and occasional beer you've got tucked in your bag, riding is typically a more comfortable option. Now you can get the best of both worlds with the Stewart X9 Follow Golf Trolley. This solid machine uses a Bluetooth connection and a clip-on sensor to automatically follow you around the course as you walk, keeping your clubs secure with an integrated rear stabilizer, and your scorecard, balls, and tees at the ready in built-in holders. The sensor also lets you control the trolley remotely — for example, sending it to the next tee while you finish up on the green — and when you're ready to go home, it folds smoothly down into a compact form that's easy to toss in the trunk.
Combine your love of cycling with your love of the water with the Schiller X1 Water Bike. Made in California, this high-performance, human-powered watercraft features a hard anodized, powder-coated aluminum frame, a proprietary multi-speed, pure rotary drive train with Gates Carbon Drive Belts for maximum speed, handlebars with integrated steering, and twin oscillating propellers that do away with the need for a rudder. Other features include a comfortable saddle, LED lighting, the ability to fit on most bike racks or in most trucks, a teardown/assembly time of under 10 minutes, and a watertight storage compartment for anything you don't want getting wet.
