Behind the wheel. 

5 Aug

I’m back behind the wheel after 15 years of taking the metro and riding the skateboard, and, as you know me now, I like to be prepared.
You never know what can happen, so let’s get ready (maybe I’m watching too many bad movies …).

Sometimes during accidents, your belt is stuck and you need to cut it to escape the wreckage. I got your back!

And if you need to break the window and kicking doesn’t cut it, I got it covered too thanks to the StatGear Auto Escape Tool.
For only $9,95 you have the 2 in 1 tool that will cut the belt and break the window. In the rest position, the Escape Tool is securely fastened to the sun breaker ready to be used.

Hydration is key during long summer drive in Florida, it’s great to have an ice tea that stays cold during hours. With the insulated Klean Kanteen (double wall bottle, dish-washer friendly), your beverage will stay cold 24 hours and warm 12 hours.

Also if it’s really hot out there, it’s good to have the hydration tabs to drop in your bottle.
Then you fill it with water (the Nunn tabs are unsweetened, so no sugar kick and down, just the electrolytes straight to your muscles).
Those tabs are made for desk jobs but also to support my sport activities where I’m sweating big time and loosing lots of electrolytes.

And if I’m hungry on the way home, I always have a package of Jerky in my backpack, the Mapple Bourbon Churro from Three Jerks Jerky is my favourite flavour.

I’m always fully charged with my Aluminium Dual Car charger (from Rokform).
It’s a great combo with the Rokform suction mount for iPhone (for once, a stand that’s not falling off the windshield … priceless).
I love the 2m~6feet charging cable by Apple to charge the phone while using Waze to find my way.
The 2nd slot is used for charging my external batteries.

In the trunk, I use the Gear Tie  Loopable Twist (from Niteize) to secure my skateboard and stuff that could be moving in the trunk.

Safe travels!

Back to school, on the smart side

Vacations are over, we had fun on the beach, BBQ everyday, made new friends, discovered new places… Basically we enjoyed our time off before the rat race starts again.
As we didn’t win the Powerball, we have to go back to the office and we better be ready.
Here’s what I always have with me to face the worst.

. Extra battery for my iPhone, iPad and computer, the Sherpa 50 by GoalZero (powered by a solar panel!!)
. Jump Cable by Native Union, giving you a 30% boost and serving a a charging cable too
. Klean Kanteen bottle, to cut on using plastic
. Nunn tabs to stay hydrated during the work day
. Luminox watch, the brand of the Navy Seals (I switched to the textile bracelet to have it a bit funkier)
. A Bluetooth earpiece, the New Era by Jawbone (4 hours autonomy, super light)
. Tile, a bluetooth tag that helps me not to forget my stuff behind (in this case my wallet)
. Shine by Misfit to track my daily and night activity
. And my beloved Biscuit skate by Hamboards to land-surf to the office and back home (still practicing).
Have fun, work well and the next vacations are around the corner!

The polar bear has his very own bottle, me too!

Photo 19-03-2014 5 24 28 pmI love bottles, I carry mine everyday from home to the office and back home.
I also love to have my bottle when I travel.
My collection includes
. 2 aluminium Kleen Kantean (one double-wall, one regular simple wall),
. one Bryta with a filter,
. one spill-free Contigo,
and since a few days, a super cool Polar Bottle!

Again, I left home without my bottle, I was desperate and needed a bottle for the next 10 days in hot and sunny Miami. I couldn’t buy just any bottle! I needed a cool bottle that I would keep using back home.
After “a little benchmark of the market”, my choice went for the Polar Bottle.
A double-wall plastic bottle with a cool design but also practical and optimized for the best usage.
The characteristics of the Polar Bottle are the following
. light because of plastics,
. safe for your health because BPA and phthalate-free,
. dishwasher-safe (put in the top rack),
. freezer-safe,
. easy to maintain thanks to a removable valve,
. spill-free, and I tested it in my backpack where it’s laying on the bottom full of liquid and not a drop!

It’s not only a cheap ($10,95 for the 20 ounces) but also a trusted and stylish bottle.

A bottle with a twist

16 Apr

Photo 1-04-13 1 29 13 AM I was in Palm Springs, home of the desert by 90 degrees and guess what ? I forgot my Klean Kanteen bottle home (more than 9K km away). I had to take action and buy another one. So I decided to pay a visit to the Fresh & Easy food store next door to study the “bottles” market.
Photo 7-04-13 9 44 00 AM
After lots of hesitation, I picked the soft squeeze bottle aqua by Brita, a soft BPA-free plastic bottle that comes with a coal filter. The coal filter reduces the chlorine taste and odor so you can fill it in with tap water.
You can also use the bottle without the filter, drink from the cap or the push-pull cap. It’s great to have 2 caps in one.
On the top of it, it comes with a handy handle, all this for 9,99$.

The filter change lasts 2 months or 40 gallons or 151 liters or 150 plastic bottles.

You can set a reminder on brita.com/reminders so you don’t forget to replace the filter when it’s time.
The 2 filters pack comes at 7,99$.

I also have 2 Klean Kanteen bottles in my collection.

. BPA-free dishwasher safe
. Price: 19,95$ for the 27oz

The double wall insulated Klean Kanteen, great for hot and cold beverages.
But don’t forget your gloves in the winter because stainless steel is cold for your little fingers…
Your hot chocolate will be stay warm for 6 hours and cold beverage cold for 24 hours.
. Klean Kanteen is BPA-free and dishwasher safe.
. Price: 27,95$ for the 16oz

The Klean Kanteen comes with different caps depending what you like (regulat cap, loop cap (great with Biner to hang them), push-pull cap and sippy cap).
I use my insulated Klean Kanteen while in hot climate and I need to keep the liquid cold for a long period of time. The regular aluminum Keam Kanteen is for everyday at work as well as the Brita.
I like to combine my Brita and Original Klean Kanteen with a neoprene sleeve to keep it cold.
