SanDisk iXpand Memory Case

Maybe you thought 16GB in your phone would be enough. The SanDisk iXpand Memory Case gives you a do-over of sorts without resorting to selling your phone and buying a new one with more memory. An on-board 32, 64, or 128GB of fast flash memory stores tons of media – all automatically sorted and password protected – while the case protects your device from bumps and bruises. Plus, an optional add-on battery boosts your devices longevity as well, though it adds some additional bulk.

Igloo All-Terrain Trailmate Cooler

Getting cold drinks to a secluded beach or deep in a campground usually involves putting two good men to the task of lugging around a large, extremely heavy handled cooler. Fortunately the Igloo All-Terrain Trailmate Cooler is a little easier to pull along for a single person thanks to a telescopic handle and oversized 10-inch never-flat wheels that’ll roll over sand and irregular terrain with ease and plenty of clearance. Its 70 quart capacity main compartment is insulated with Igloo Ultratherm for 4 day ice retention and holds up to 112 beverages. Two bottle openers — one on each side — get you into the latter quickly, and the cooler is also equipped with a butler tray, tie-down loops with which to strap down other gear (think chairs and towels), and a watertight box for storing moisture-sensitive goods.

Blendtec Pro 800 Blender

Blenders, along with vacuums and hairdryers, are amongst the least tolerable appliances to run due to the ridiculous noise they output. The Blendtec Pro 800 Blender greatly reduces loudness thanks to a sealed sound enclosure that dampens it by wrapping around the blender. It’s plenty powerful as with most Blendtec products and also features an illuminated touchscreen interface, six preprogrammed cycles to cover a variety of uses, as well as an 11 speed touch slider for precise control over blade speed. The catch? It’s massive, and also not all too cheap.

Brik Tile Lego Compatible Wall Tiles

It used to be that making your walls Lego-compatible took some lego bricks and a bit of crazy glue. Now, Brik Tile Lego Compatible Wall Tiles are a more sensible solution. Backed with a removable adhesive that allows you to stick and re-stick several times to a variety of smooth surfaces, Brik Tiles can be stuck on one at a time or in groups with no gaps between tiles. Then, populate with Lego or Mega Bloks and make whatever you want stick out from your wall (or cubicle side). Some ideas include pen holders, a cell phone mount, key hooks, cable routers, or simply to make some pixel art using flat bricks.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ale

Stack vices with New Belgium’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ale. In collaboration with Ben & Jerry’s (because who else has the know-how to pull something like this off?), this ice cream inspired beer is likely to taste amazing — at least if we’re judging by last year’s decadent Salted Caramel Brownie Ale. It’s bound to make for a particularly great dessert beer to follow the other beer you’re drinking, though it’ll only be available in fall, with a large portion of proceeds benefiting the Protect Our Winters non-profit raising awareness about climate change. We’ll drink to that.

Marshmallow Crossbow

The Marshmallow Crossbow sits somewhere on the spectrum in between toy and whimsical weapon (legally, of the slingshot variety). Its body — including the marshmallow chute “barrel” — is shaped from lightweight solid Douglas Fir and is fitted with a bow assembly that includes a rubber shock cord and aluminum sheet stock. Load in a marshmallow and it locks in place, not budging until you pull the trigger. And when you do, expect the white fluffy sugar puff to travel up to 60 feet — so try not to aim for the eyes.

Grab one at Litchfield or Marshmallow Crossbow – $80

BioLite PizzaDome

Making pizza or flatbread in the middle of nowhere just got a whole lot easier. Working in conjunction with BioLite’s BaseCamp stove — which is required — their new PizzaDome lets you cook up a variety of foods you wouldn’t normally associate with the backwoods. The lid sports an integrated thermometer to monitor temperature, a silicone handle that stays cool to the touch, and also comes with a food-safe ceramic stone to distribute heat evenly across your pizza pie. Alternately, ditch the stone and just use the lid for concentrating heat and reducing cook times on whatever else you’re planning to grill.

Learn more at BioLite – $70 (or $300 with a BaseCamp as part of a bundle until June 28)

Rare Whisky Presenter Set

Drinking fine whisky out of a solo cup just feels wrong. Not from the Rare Whisky Presenter Set, though.
