Underwear With Waterproof Pocket

adventure_underwear_5

It was just last week that we were talking about shorts with a waterproof pocket and expressing our disappointment that that particular product was a failed Kickstarter effort, and thus unavailable. Well, the Adventure Underwear pictured above still has a chance at making it. It features a quick access pocket for credit cards and cash, and another larger waterproof pocket for passports and smartphones or whatever else must remain dry. That pocket is “certified waterproof up to 200ft deep by Scuba Schools International. They’re made in the USA from new age polyethylene, so they’re 100% recyclable and even rated food safe by the FDA.” Unlike last time, there’s still time on the crowdfunding effort to get this to market. A $39 pledge will get you one, while $97 gets you three.

Shorts With A Waterproof Pocket

waterproof-bathing-suit

Like to run into the water without thinking? You go to the kinds of parties where you’re likely to be pushed into a pool by some drunken fool who didn’t at least ask to see your phone before pushing you in? There’s a long list of situations where you’d want to be wearing shorts with waterproof pockets, and the Stash shorts pictured above got you covered. They feature a watertight plastic pocket with an opening large enough to fit wallets, phones, keys or cash. Also, their usefulness is not limited to times where you’re in the water involuntarily; going to the beach and leaving your valuables on the sand to possibly get stolen is always a risky proposition.

The problem is… the Stash doesn’t actually have you covered, since they’re not for sale. They were on Kickstarter a while back, but the campaign didn’t reach its funding goal. They would have sold for $80, but now the company is trying to figure out some other way to bring them to market. Best we can do is point you to their Facebook page where they might update you if ever this product gets made.

It’s more than just a novelty, because this shirt by inink can actually come in handy, especially if you listen to music a lot.

Burnt Coffee Socks Could Help You Get Rid Of Smells

Socks-Made-with-Carbonized-Coffee-that-keep-your-feet

No one likes smelly feet, and a good solution to this is changing socks often, and washing. But that’s not always possible, and anyone’s who’s ever been trekking or played some sport knows that feet will end up smelling, no matter what. To combat the footsie fragrances, the ATLAS sock hopes to use carbonized coffee woven straight into its polyester fabric.

The Atlas sock literally uses carbonized coffee that is “reclaimed from coffee roasters and shops, and is processed through a pharmaceutical process to remove the coffee oils (so it won’t smell like coffee!) and is then infused into our recycled polyester yarns. Our unique Atlas yarn has been tested in the lab by using an ASTM Standard (D 5742), to compare odor control against other fabrics – it’s 3X more effective at absorbing odor molecules than regular cotton!”

So there seems to have been some testing behind the claims, which is always good when you’re going to be dropping $28 for two pairs.

Hairy Leg Stockings To Keep Creepos From Hitting On You

anti-perv-hairy-leg-stockings

There isn’t a whole lot of information available on the above product, other than the picture. They are allegedly some stockings covered with what looks like bushy hairs, which are meant to be worn by girls tired of getting hit on by undesirables. They’ll also likely prevent you from getting hit on by hot guys, so we suppose you should only wear them when you’re really not in the mood.

They were spotted in China, and if anyone has any information on cost and availability, please let us know.

Hally Hensen Jacket Features Body Temperature Regulation

HH2-jacket-1

There are a good number of garments that promise to keep you warm when cold, and cool you down while hot, simultaneously. However these often rely on simplistic improvements over the fabrics used in their making. The Hollow Heat Flow (H2) system from Hally Hensen is a little different.

[It] combines insulation (200g fleece in this case) with both positive and negative spaces (aka holes) and the ability to make the right kinds of adjustments to the garment to better regulate your body temperature. Put another way, heat gets trapped in air pockets in certain areas around the body and the holes in the fleece not only trap that hot air, believe it or not, but also help circulate cool air when you unzip the vents.

In other words, the jacket is very sensitive to the opening of vents which will keep you cooler when opened, and vice versa. When you’re out in the kind of weather that starts off pretty cool (requiring a jacket) and ends up warmer, you’re going to appreciate the efforts put into a jacket like this. What you’ll like a little less however, is how much you’ll have to spend for it: $180.

Hit the jump for a couple of videos that demonstrate how the system works, as well as links.

Bonus: ladybug pattern on the liner!

Power Shorts: Shake Your Bon Bons for Power

Power Shorts

Is your phone running low on power? That should be no problem if you’re wearing shorts with the Power Pocket, because all you’ll have to do to charge up your phone is shake your booty. Clearly it’s not the easiest or most practical way to charge your battery, but it’s probably one of the funnest, especially if you’re in the right place, with the right people.

The shorts were created by Vodafone with the help of researchers from the University of Southampton. They were unveiled to attendees of UK’s Isle of Wight music fest, who I’m sure had a blast trying it out.
