To quote Madonna (something I’m not particularly fond of), “We are living in a material world.” To help you figure out which of the millions of material goods swirling around us is worth spending your hard-earned cash on, we have put together The Want List, consisting of the items we really love this week.
STONE PALE ALE 2.0
Price varies, stonebrewing.com
Stone Brewing is an O.G. in the craft beer scene and Stone Pale Ale was the brew that launched the brand. Now they’ve reworked the recipe of the iconic beer to create Pale Ale 2.0 using a new hop variety called Mandarina Bavaria. It clocks in at 6% ABV with 55 IBUs and is a highly drinkable beer that blends the best of traditional European styles with the hoppy flavors of a craft pale ale.
MOPHIE JUICE PACK H2PRO
Mophie already made the best battery-charging iPhone cases, now they’ve gone and made them waterproof. The new Juice Pack H2Pro provides more than 100% extra battery power for your iPhone 6 and can be completely submerged in water without causing any damage to the device. Now if someone pushes you into the pool at a BBQ this summer, you won’t have to worry about your phone being destroyed. You will still have to worry about being the guy who was pushed in the pool.
TONY HAWK PRO SKATER 5
Price unavailable, activision.com
We seem to be entering an era of early-aught video game reboots. First came Guitar Hero, now the legendary Tony Hawk Pro Skater game is set to make a return later this year, with THPS 5. The game will be available for next-gen consoles and feature the Birdman, Nyjah Huston, and even Tony’s son Riley Hawk, who’s now old enough to be in the game. There will be new gameplay elements and online multiplayer modes so you can easily skate with folks around the world.
SAMSUNG LEVEL ON WIRELESS HEADPHONES
The first thing that you notice about the new Samsung Level On headphones is how cool they look, particularly the vibrant blue and red versions. Inside of that sleek design lies some serious tech. The headphones feature six built-in microphones and active noise canceling to provide amazing sound quality and range. They connect to your phone via Bluetooth and feature easy-to-use touch controls.
SHINOLA X MAP OF DAYS LEATHER-COVERED BIKE CHAIN
Most of the time when someone’s trying to crack a bike lock, it’s to steal the bike. With this new leather-covered chain, the lock itself is the object of desire. Shinola partnered with North Carolina-based Map of Days to cover a thick chain and padlock in luxurious Horween leather. The leather does more than just look good, it also protects the paint on your bike frame.
