The Boozie Is A Hoodie For Winos

boozie-1

Isn’t it ridiculous how much they charge for beer at the stadium? If you’re like us, you’re always looking for discreet ways to bring your own booze and save a couple bucks on alcohol. The Boozie makes that task incredibly easy. It’s a hoodie with two hidden, BPA-free, plastic bladders, and drawstrings that double as straws. Fill them up with your favourite concoction and sip at your leisure from your inconspicuous drawstrings. The bladders hold 20 ounces of liquid, in total, and are reinforced so you don’t have to worry about a leak. It’s a $95 pledge for your own Boozie, which comes in four colors and several sizes.

The Coast Is A Kayak That Folds, Origami Style

oru-kayak-2

Somewhat over two years ago we wrote about the Oru Kayak, a folding kayak that performed just as well as a non-folding one. Well now the company is back with a newer, longer model. While the initial ones were 12′ in length, The Coast and Coast+ come in at 16′, which makes them faster, more streamlined boats. They fold up into a bag that measures 32″X28″X13″ (or 15″) and weighs 31 lbs. or 34 lbs. depending on the model. That’s light and small enough to fit in the trunk of a car, to travel with in a plane, and lug around with you to any body of water you want.

The Coast weighs in at just 31 lbs. and takes under 10 minutes to unfold and setup. The Coast+ has all of the features of the Coast, plus many more: it includes ratchet buckles for easy assembly, an ergonomic seat for long paddles, thigh braces for control and comfort, full decklines and rigging for storage and rescues, and a super cool folding hatch for gear storage.

We’re big fans of Kayaking; it’s a great activity and an awesome workout. But having to rent can be a restrictive hassle, so we’re bullish about the Coast and Coast+. The cheapest way to get in on the action is to pledge $1,650, which will give you a Coast Kayak. Prices go up to $2,650 for the Coast+ which comes with an Oru Paddle, Oru Pack, Oru Skirt, Oru Dry Bag and Oru Float bags.

Beer Bottle Stein Lid Is Cool, Somewhat Useful

beer-bottle-stein-lid-1-595x496

You guys remember the Das Can in Stein attachment that turned any beer can into a cool beer Stein. Well, the Oktoberfest Party Favor Beer Bottle Stein Lid isn’t quite that elaborate, but it’s still awesome. It’s a metal lid that clips onto the side of a standard beer bottle and prevents insects from taking a swim in your drink; in the process it makes it look a little bit like a Stein. It’s just a quirky way to decorate your drink with a smidge of functionality on the side. At $9, there are worse novelty items to spend your money on.

WINKpen Can Use Any Liquid, Even Wine, To Write

winkpen-4

We live in a disposable society, or at the very least a society that seems too comfortable with the idea of throwing away things once they’ve outlived their apparent usefulness. But Portland-based designer Jessica Chan created the WINKpen as a way to go against our throwaway trend, and promoting sustainability, by creating the WINKpen. The writing implement can use any staining liquid as ink, like beer, tea, and even wine.

Unlike other fountain pens, where the ink usually comes out of a metal nib, WINKpen’s nib is made of glass. Spiraled grooves in the glass nib feed “ink” to the paper, producing a more pleasant aesthetic effect. Additionally, using glass offers the advantage of avoiding corrosion, plus it’s easier to clean.

It’s an interesting concept, if only a little unnecessary and unfortunately a bit overpriced. A WINKpen will cost you a rather hefty $60 pledge.
