remember the Life Is Precious Survival Kit, the coolest survival kit that you can’t buy? well, looks like its creator Ford Standard, knows your yearning and decided to introduced a simpler version money can buy (according to the company, they have received overwhelming requests to sell the kit).
the statement ‘using heat to cool something’ may sounds contradictory, but that is exactly what the SolarCooler does. it is the world’s first portable solar-powered refrigerating cooler (aka thermal refrigerator) that has a top covered with solar panels to harness the power of the sun to keep the contents within chill.
back in 2011, we opened our eyes to realize that a shovel could be a multi-tool too. needless to say, we were absolutely impressed. fast forward to today, the same company that gives you that Swiss Army knives of shovel, the Crovel (Crowbar + Shovel hybrid) has an improved version, aptly named Crovel Extreme II.
