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.
Pendleton Thomas Kay Log Carrier
Sitting around a fireplace is great. Retrieving new logs to keep the fire burning? Not so much. At least this carrier from Pendleton, with leather handles and woven trim, lets you look good while you get the wood. (Bonus points if you’ve chopped it yourself).
Nike ACG Flynknit Chukka SFB
Nike resurrected its All Conditions Gear (ACG) line, imagining it more for the urban adventurer than the wilderness backpacker. These Flyknit Chukka SFBs have a protective skin on the heel and toe and have been sprayed with a special material to make them water repellant.
Bosse Snow Shovel
Shoveling snow just got a lot easier. The ergonomically-designed center handle on this shovel rotates to 16 different positions allowing you to move snow or other large loads more efficiently with less stress on your body.
Oru Bay+ Kayak
Think of it like the folding bike for the water. The Oru Bay+ kayak folds into its own carrying case making it easier to transport in your car and to carry once you arrive at your destination. The origami-like boat weighs just 28 pounds and has a fully adjustable seat so that you can paddle comfortably for extended periods.
House Of Marley Get Together Speaker
The cover for this portable Bluetooth speaker features environmentally-friendly materials like bamboo, hemp, organic cotton, and recycled plastic bottles. The Get Together isn’t just green, though. With two 3.5" woofers and two 1" tweeters it packs plenty of sonic punch.
