The World Traveler

Stanley Flask

The seasoned traveler knows a small serving of hooch makes any journey more pleasurable. With the Stanley 8 oz. Flask you’ll be sipping in style thanks to a stainless steel vessel that hasn’t changed since your grandfather tipped one back in the day. $20, www.shopstanley-pmi.com

Filson Tin Cloth Duffle

A man doesn’t require a lot of luggage to get around. A simple duffle, like the cotton oil finish tin cloth duffle from Filson, should get the job done. This one is crafted from tough materials designed to take a beating, and the water resistant finish will keep your gear dry all the way to your destination. $99, www.filson.com

Smith Gibson Sunglasses

You shouldn’t leave home without your shades, much less hop on a plane and jet across the globe without them. Smith’s Gibson glasses are polarized for added ocular protection, and are available in a variety of colors so you can find the right pair for you. $119, www.smithoptics.com

The Outdoorsman

Dakine Shield Jacket

Brave the elements and look good doing it. Dakine’s Shield jacket is lightweight and breathable, but tough enough to provide adequate protection when conditions start to turn. Stuff one in your pack and break it out when the elements demand it. $150, www.dakine.com

Kaufmann Mercantile Magnesium Fire Starter

Lighters are for the weak. Men use magnesium. Even better when it’s adorned with a naturally-shed elk antler handle, and when it’s capable of producing flame in wet conditions. $29, www.kaufmann-mercantile.com

Estwing Camping Hatchet

Forged from a single piece of steel and partially wrapped in a lacquered leather handle, this hatchet looks and feels like it was built to rough it. Which, of course, it was. $39, www.kaufmann-mercantile.com

The Entertainment Junkie

Jawbone Big Jambox

It’s the 21st century; your music library doesn’t need to be tethered down to a computer or stereo anymore. With Big Jambox, you can play music wirelessly from any Bluetooth device, and the Jambox’s ultra-portable design means you can pick up and relocate any time. It’s also a speakerphone with built-in microphone, so if you get a call in the middle of a playlist, you can switch from jamming to conversing at the tap of a button. Pre-order yours now, www.jawbone.com

Silo End Table

Ever feel like your furniture just doesn’t look dangerous enough? Solve that problem with the Silo End Table, a piece intended only for the manliest of living rooms. The dummy round in the middle was originally manufactured for training drills during WWII. The real ones blew up German U-Boats. If there’s a better conversation starter out there, we’ve yet to find it. $900, www.etsy.com

Hauppauge Broadway

There are a lot of devices out there that let you stream what’s on your computer to your television screen. But what if you want to go in the other direction? Broadway offers a solution, making it easy for users to stream live television to a computer or mobile device. $199, www.hauppauge.com

The Home Improver

Wera Koloss Hammer-Ratchet

If you’ve spent any time in a workshop, chances are you’ve tried pounding a loose nail with a ratchet at one point or another. If you haven’t, let us save you the suspense: it doesn’t work very well. Now a ratchet with built-in hammer capabilities, on the other hand, is a tool to be reckoned with. $108, www.sears.com

Black and Decker Ready Wrench

Who’s got the patience to pick through a case full of wrenches until you find the right size? The Black and Decker Ready Wrench eliminates any need for toolbox hunting, combining 16 adjustable wrenches sizes in one good-to-go package. $27, www.blackanddecker.com
