Holyfield’s addictions, hot and fresh out the kitchen

Every so often, you come across a product that simply must be shared with the world. Whether it be innovative tech, cutting-edge attire, or a new everyday essential, we’re always on the hunt for the latest and greatest.

Below are five unique items we’ve gone hands on with that we think you should take a look at. Consider the following recommendations our gift to you.

CamelBak Quantico Day Pack

Making your daily commute to work? How about a hike through a national park? No matter the occasion, every able body needs a good backpack to carry some of the load.

Quantico from CamelBak, half of the brand’s Recon series, boasts a sleek, but rugged design. It’s equipped with ample storage for all your everyday essentials. The exterior of the pack has seven compartments of varying sizes, including a fleece-lined pocket for your sunglasses, a dedicated laptop compartment, and a collapsible water bottle holder spacious enough to accommodate most travel mugs.

The front-facing shell of the pack is armed with handy MOLLE (Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment) webbing, giving the wearer the ability to attach a generous amount of gear. The backside is outfitted with padded shoulder straps and a robust sternum strap to ensure comfortable daily wear.

Verdict: While its 23-litre capacity is a tad on the small side and may look puny on the backs of the Pablo Sandoval’s of the world, the Quantico is a brilliantly engineered pack crafted from heavy-duty 500D Cordura fabric that should stand the test of time. – Buy It

Flipside 4 Wallet








“The wallet has evolved,” or so Flipside would have you believe, and they’d be right.

A far-cry from your father’s bulky, leather bi-fold, the Flipside 4 wallet is a structurally-sound, miniature front pocket safe designed to carry seven standard sized cards and up to ten bills. Featuring RFID blocking main compartments an an intuitive new locking mechanism, the Flipside 4 has been completely rebuilt from the ground up to ensure your cash and cards remain safe.

Outfitted with a deeper scratch-resistant coating and a detachable exterior clip, the Flipside 4 provides quick and easy access to your most commonly used cards on the go, while its durable water and crush-resistant core has it primed to take a beating should such a scenario arise.

Verdict: Its plastic facade may look cheap upon first glance, but don’t be fooled; the Flipside 4 is a brawny beast primed for tough love. Back pocket wallet enthusiasts may be better suited elsewhere, but everyone else will fall in love. – Buy It
