There's nothing quite as rewarding as a sip of your favorite spirit after a long day in the outdoors, and High Camp Flasks make it easy to enjoy that beverage. Both the 375mL Halflight and 750mL Firelight flasks are vacuum-insulated and integrate magnetic, double-wall tumblers into their cylindrical design, ensuring you've always got a cup on hand wherever you may be. Each tumbler magnetically attaches to the flask as its lid so you won't misplace it and leave it behind. The larger Firelight flask has two integrated cups so you can share your vice with a friend, while the smaller Halflight has one cup for partaking on your own while on the go. Each is made from stainless steel and has an electropolished interior that won't retain or impart any flavors to your drinks. Being released for retail exclusively with Uncrate, the 375mL Halflight is only $69 before it goes to full price later this year.
Halflight: 375mL / One Integrated Stainless Cup
Firelight: 750mL / Two Integrated Stainless Cups

For those that grew up in late '70s and '80s, the graphic designs of NASA are some of the most memorable of the period, appearing on everything from hats to the Space Shuttle. This reprinting of the NASA Graphics Standards Manual celebrates this outstanding identity system, which was used from 1975 to 1992. Recreated for public use for the first time from the personal copies of the original designers, Richard Danne and Bruce Blackburn, it covers the logo, placement, color schemes, and other design standards that helped capture the imagination of a generation and make the American space agency a lasting, iconic part of our legacy of exploration. Included are scans of Danne's personal copy of the original manual, a forward from Danne, an essay by Christopher Bonanos, reproductions of the original NASA 35mm slide presentation, and scans of the 'Managers Guide', a follow up booklet distributed by NASA. Each copy is individually wrapped in a foil static shield, adding even more nostalgic rocket-age flair to this iconic design reference.
