when it comes to enjoying the great wilderness, a tent is something of a necessity for that good night rest after a hard day mugging around in the wild. while this invention needs little further innovation, it could benefit from a little splash of graphic design. if you are not content with just soaking up what the nature has to offer to you, you can rest yourself with style in these Fieldcandy Tents (read: eye candy. got it?) that comes in a variety of cheeky designs that include one that looks like a book (‘Full Booked), a watermelon (‘What a Melon’), a circus tent (‘Big Top’), just to name a few. our favorites got to be the ‘Get a Room’ (one with the silhouettes of a pair of lovers) and the ‘Rule Britannia’ (it’s an Union Jack!) designs.

spork is a result of a spoon spliced with a fork, which we thought was a pretty cool invention but the Titanium Kung Foon elevates the spork to the next level by incorporating a nice pair of wooden chopsticks into it. the spork part of the Kung Foon needs little introduction: we all know it is good for biting into your food and the deep bowl form allows scooping of soups and cereals but it is the chopsticks part that adds to its functionality. the chopsticks slide into the foon handle, transforming the otherwise short utensil into a long handled utensil that is well suited for scooping, scraping or stirring in narrow pots.

Gerber Apocalypse Survival Kit

according to some, the world will not end with a bang but rather, the mankind will face the threat from the undead. you know, those flesh-eating zombies and stuff like that. in that case, you’d better be prepared to face the worst or risk being eaten alive, or becoming part of the undead community. before you get to big ticket items like purchasing a highland with nuclear-proof bunker built beneath, it is wise to start from the basic survival (or self defense, if you like) level like purchasing the Gerber Apocalypse Survival Kit. packed within the reinforced canvas carrying case are a total of seven survival tools that include gator machete, camp axe II, gator machete pro, parang, a 10-inch survival knife known as the LMF II Infantry, DMF folder (basically, a 3.5-inch folding knife), and Epic (a short knife with a bonus bottle opener).

when Rambo was smashing through the jungle, he could have look more suave if he had a sewing kit with him to mend those torn clothing but those ordinary sewing kits are just too wussy for a macho killing machine like him. what he need is the Survival Sewing Kit, a kit designed for the boy scouts (no pun intended) conceived by one Victoria Caswell. crafted from olive green canvas, the kit resembles a sleeping bag complete with pulls and snaps. basically, it looks so good that it makes a grown man want to pick sewing when he hits the great wilderness. no kidding. unfortunately, it looks like it is not available for us to buy. no seriously, it’s not because we are a man that we can’t buy. just thought we give you a little reassurance. more larger views of this awesome sewing kit after the break.
