JackHawk Bottle Opener Wayfarers + Giveaway

Longtime readers know that we hold the fusion of everyday gear with bottle openers in highest regards (money clips, iPhone cases, collar stays, and even bullets), but this is just on a whole other level. The JackHawk 9000’s look like your typical wayfarers but pack integrated bottle openers on each titanium arm that complement the shades with a sharp, aggressive look. On top of cracking open bottles, JackHack features polarized, scratch-resistant iridium lenses with full UV protection and solid welded steel hinges.

Find it at Amazon – $165

Edit: giveaway is now closed, winner is Mel Greene.

Want a pair? We’re giving one away thanks to the creators of JackHawk, so get to it in the Rafflecopter entry form below (takes just seconds).

a Rafflecopter giveaway
Open to ages 18+, continental USA and Canada; winner will be chosen randomly from all entries. The more you do, the better your odds (5 max per person). Please note that delivery should be in August, approximately. As per usual, we abide by a very strict privacy policy and will shred all emails and information we gather, save for use in contacting the contest winner. Contest ends on June 8th at midnight.


GIVEAWAY – Byzero Studio Digital Pen

Update: contest is now over, thanks to all who participated. The winner is Debbie Fraser! We’ve dispatched an email and had no response, so if you see this please drop us a line.

You may be familiar with Byzero Studios’ Digital Pen, the first non-capacitive iPad, digitizer-like stylus for the iPad. While the iPad doesn’t actually contain a digitizer (as in Wacom tablets), the plug-in receiver communicates with the pen and calculates positioning using infrared and ultrasound, meaning it’s not only extremely accurate but also pressure sensitive.

Sold yet? Thanks to the folks over at Byzero Studios, we’ve got one to give away to our readers! Just complete as many of our quick entry methods as you’d like – the more you do, the better your odds, as usual, so get to it! Don’t be intimidated by the Rafflecopter box: this is just like our previous contests but easier to manage, and collected emails will ONLY be used to notify the winner!

Privacy policy: we take privacy very seriously. We will flat out shred any information (email, name, etc) we gather, after notifying the contest winner, of course! You have our word.

That’s it! Contest closes at midnight on May 31st, we’ll pick a winner at random shortly after.

For more pen specs, visit Byzero or Amazon.
Fine print: you are eligible to win if you live in the continental USA or Canada, otherwise additional shipping charges may apply (though feel free to enter if you’d like!).

USB Bottle Opener Giveaway Winner!

The 2 weeks since we announced the giveaway have flown by and helped kick this site off the ground! We hope you like what you’ve seen so far and keep up with our posts of awesome stuff (naturally). Many changes have been made to gearHungry in the past week and we’d like to know how you think we’re doing, so please drop us some comments down below or by email to gearhungry [at] gmail dot com!

We compiled our Twitter followers and Facebook fans and picked one at random. The winner is nrobak101 (Twitter)! Please email us (at the aforementioned address) so we know where to send it!

We will be aiming to have more of such giveaways in the near future since we figure that we’d rather spend $ giving you gifts than on advertising!
