Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on March 7th, 2010

They have a special edition phone for every occasion so we kind of expected this one. Oakley and Nokia have teamed up to launch the limited edition Nokia N97 Winter Olympics 2010 edition. If you want one you better not mess around, because as usual they won’t produce very many.

In fact Nokia will release just 200 units. The phone sports the Oakley Thunderbird logo for the Vancouver Olympics laser etched on the back. It also comes preloaded with exclusive Oakley team videos and photos.

Zippos aren’t just for those who are quick with a joke and will light up your smoke, they can keep your hands warm too if you are in a cold climate. The new £19.99 Zippo Hand Warmer will keep your digits toasty.

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on December 6th, 2009

Snow Shorts with a built-in Butt-SledSledding is fun for both kids and adults. But as a kid, I always hated lugging a heavy sled around and having to carry it back up the hill. It ruins the whole thing and makes it a pain. Well, thanks to Pull on Snow Shorts from Orvis, that problem is solved.

You won’t have to worry about carrying your sled up the hill again and again because the sled is now your butt. Yes, it’s a wearable sled! Just wear the snow shorts over your pants and get your butt on that snow. It comes in 3 sizes: small kids, big kids, and adult for $35.

Millennium Falcon Sled won’t do hyperspace

Millennium Falcon Sled won’t do hyperspaceThis version of the Falcon is squished, probably from your fat butt sliding down hills. The Falcon has seen better days that’s for sure. But sadly, this is as close as you are likely to get, to really being able to ride the Falcon. You’ll be riding on, not in.

The Millennium Falcon sled is basically a souped-up saucer sled that allows older geeks to have some winter fun outside and be pointed at by young kids who have cooler sleds that don’t look like a flattened cartoon spaceship. It’s pretty expensive for a saucer sled at $34.99, but hell, it’s shaped like the Millennium Falcon.

The most badass snowmobile you will ever seeHave a look at the sneer on this thing’s face. Yes, it’s so badass it has it’s own mean face. A face that will scare all but the bravest from climbing on and taking a ride, immediately sorting the poseurs from the rugged manly men. It’s a concept snowmobile from Dominic Shindler and you can color us impressed. The design is aggressive and intimidating while standing still.

It sports huge, wide tracks in front and skis in the rear. It’s basically a snowmobile on steroids that looks nothing like the typical winter off-road machines. It even sports a place for your skis in case you want to enjoy the next hill.
