We're not sure if it completely lives up to its name, but the World’s Greatest Flashlight ($149) certainly makes a compelling case. It sports a halogen spotlight with the equivalent of 15 million candlepower and a rechargeable battery to run the spotlight for up to 11 hours, a swiveling 1W LED spotlight and soft area lamp, a built-in handle and stand, and a nylon carrying belt.
This battery-powered mower is perfect for treehuggers with a small yard. The Black & Decker Cordless Electric Mulching Mower ($370) features a rechargeable 24-volt battery (5 hp gas equivalent at peak torque) that cuts up to a 1/3 acre lot between charges. The battery recharges to 60-70% in 4 hours and 100% in 16-24 hours. It's got one-touch start up and height adjustment and comes with the mulch plate and bag.
Most guys dread the thought of clothes shopping and dread the thought of having to try clothes on at a store even more. With Mott & Bow, you can say goodbye to that painful process, and still get a well designed, great fitting pair of premium jeans. Mott & Bow is all about comfort and quality. They use different types of denim from left-hand weave Italian denim for extreme softness (seriously, they're really soft) to 4-way stretch denim for optimal flexibility. Mott & Bow cuts out the middleman and sells directly to you so they can sell their jeans at half the price of jeans of the same quality. They will also ship you two waist sizes at no extra charge to make sure you get the right fit — just send back the pair that doesn't fit at no additional cost. Finally, you can afford premium denim that fits without an awkward trip to a department store. And keep an eye out, as several new styles are on the way in 2018.

Inspired by NASA's X-Plane Project, the Zelos ZX series aims to push boundaries, just like the experimental aircraft. The ZX-8 Limited Edition has Swiss Automatic 7750 movement and even features a titanium dial made from an actual SR-71 Blackbird, the fastest jet in the world. The titanium is cut from an SR-71 engine, and the original finish was left intact, including all marks, scratches, and leftover paint, making each dial unique.

Be the hippest billy on the hill. The BoomCooler ($900) essentially packs a car stereo into an ice chest, rendering ineffective for storing beer, but extra effective for rocking out. And rock out you will — this monstrosity features a CDX-GT320 AM/FM radio and CD Player, two 6” x 9” 240 Watt Max 4-Way Speakers, one 1100 Watt Max 10” Subwoofer and a 4-Channel 600-Watt Amplifier, all from the Sony Xplod line. Perfect for Nascar, pig roasts or gatherings involving camouflage. [Thanks, Mike]
The Mugmate Coffee/Tea Filter ($17) by Mountain Safety Research compacts the principles of a percolating coffee machine into one travel mug. Just throw some of your favorite drink in the filter, stick it in your favorite mug and add hot water. Soon you'll be drinking just like you were in the comforts of your own home, which brings us to a word of caution — using this contraption anywhere other than camping will make you to look like a bit of a fool.
