Stick it where the sun doesn't shine. The Garage Light by Big Ass Light combines industrial-strength construction with top-of-the-line LEDs to create a light worthy of the most masculine of spaces. Hit it with a hammer; whack it with a golf club; hell, run over it with your truck. This light can handle whatever you dish out. The Garage Light is rated for 150,000 hours (that's over 70 years of six-hour-a-day use). It produces more light than fifteen 60-watt incandescent bulbs, so it can light up the darkest corners of your garage, and it'll make your toys look amazing. It even turns on and off automatically with an optional motion sensor. Consider this the last garage light you'll ever buy.
After collaborating on a product as complex as a digital watch, a pen seems rather simple — but Marc Newson brought his signature elegance to the Montblanc M Pen, anyway. Like many of his designs, the M lacks any sharp edges, instead featuring a circular body made from polished black resin that has a plateau on the closed end for added comfort. The cap is automatically aligned with the plateau using magnets and secures with a standard snap mechanism, the clip is plated with platinum and has no visible mounting points, and the nib is made from gold and finished with rhodium and ruthenium. Available as a fountain pen, rollerball, ballpoint, fineliner, and tablet-friendly screenwriter.
Bringing to mind antler lights, tree boughs, and other rustic lighting and decorations, the Branch Chandelier is a clean alternative for minimalist decors. With as many as 28 lighting elements, the Margus Triibmann design uses LED technology, and is made from aluminum with a powder coat finish and a galvanized steel support. In addition, the individual elements are posable, making this a more versatile solution than your standard chandelier.
Once you've filled your glass growler with latest double IPA you've been wanting to try, it's only a matter of time before it's warm, has been exposed to UV light to change the flavor, and is sweating all over your car seat. The Beer Growler from Mira makes those problems a thing of the past with its vacuum insulated, food grade stainless steel, 64oz growler. Beer will stay cold for up to 24 hours, and the taste and carbonation are protected since it's double walled and boasts an air-tight, screw-on seal lock.
Plastic water bottles are a huge contributor to pollution — we throw away over 20 billion of them every year. The Eau Good Water Bottle is out to change that. It's made from a BPA-free plastic called Tritan so it's more durable than glass, and uses a filter made from Binchotan active charcoal to treat your tap water. This filter is made in the Kishu region of Japan, and absorbs chemicals in the water while adding minerals, balancing the pH, and in general making it taste better. All without contributing to the Great Pacific garbage patch, which sounds like an idea out of Infinite Jest but is sadly a very real thing.
No artificial lighting can compete with the actual sun. That's why the Lucy Sunlight Bender doesn't create light. Instead, it uses an adaptive mirror and a series of intelligent sensors to track the sun throughout the day, keeping it focused on the same spot — just like a lamp. And since it's always in the sun, it can run solely off solar power, setting you free from the constraints of your home's existing wiring.

Keeping your own chickens in your backyard can be both sustainable and healthier than relying on farm-produced ovals from the store. Unfortunately, most coops look like they belong on a farm, not in a backyard. The Breed Retreat Chicken Coop is a rare exception. This multi-level coop is built from wood, finished in black with an extra coating for durability, and sports an architectural design that won't look out of place next to your clean-lined home.
While you can make bourbon anywhere in the United States, Kentucky still produces nearly 95% of what is on store shelves, in large part due to the natural water resources within the state.

A splash will bring new flavors out of any glass of bourbon, and this heavy, flint glass bottle will also fit in nicely at the bar next to your ever expanding bourbon collection.
Like an exoskeleton shell for your favorite automobile, the Gazebox can keep it protected from the elements without the need for a bulky dedicated structure. This folding cover is made in Italy from painted iron framework and anti-UV polycarbonate panels, offering protection from both the elements and any stray animals (or their droppings). They come outfitted with LED lights for nighttime use, and can be outfitted with options like automatic openers, air conditioners, fans, alarms, vacuum cleaners, and even solar panels, and can also double as shelters for outdoor dining, provided you move your car out of the way first.

And if you're not a beer drinker, it's perfect for Kombucha and coffee too.

It's made using a flat piece of iron and uses two wing nuts to keep the handle flush to the pan during travel, but solid and sure during cooking.

It promises to keep the contents hot for up to 6 hours and the vacuum even comes with a 10 year guarantee.
