Hang in there!

Being a techie, or always looking for a smart product doesn’t free you from your daily chores at home … one of them is the washing. I already got the two in one sink/washer from Smeg and I need a smart way to dry it.

I started looking for a wash dryer system to hang my laundry home image(I don’t have a garden, only concrete …).
I bought a regular dry system (even if you fold it it takes room and is not that handy to handle, and it looks ugly), but as you know regular is not enought for me and I kept looking for the perfect system.
I narrowed down the contestants to gearlines (the ones used when camping).
I bought it and brought it home to start testing it. And I must admit that it is really useful even if you don’t live in a tent!
My choice went to the brand Niteize, the line comes with 2 gear ties and 10 different sizes S-Biners (the competitors just give you the line and you need to find a way to attach it.
My line is 4 feet long, but also exists in 2 feet length.
I use it horizontally for the wash to dry and vertically to listen music in the bathroom and hang my speakers and iPhone.
Cheap and polyvalent, it’s how I like it.image

Got a piranha in the pocket!

22 Sep

imageOften when I’m working outdoor, I need scissors, something to cut carton boxes open, open a FedEx plastic envelop, unpack products, … And in the middle of nowhere what’s left to you is your bite and nails … Maybe not!
I’ve been benching solutions for quite a time now and recently found the Piranha Alpine Knife by Trango.
It’s a small pocket knife made from surgical 440-C stainless.
The Piranha is small and can be the beat friend of your keyring.
The blade is dented and cuts really well (watch the fingers or no more piano lessons) but Trango thought about it and it’s advised to carry the Piranha on a regular carabiner and it won’t open itself.
When you are finished your work with the Piranha, you’ll be able to open bottle thanks to it’s bottles opener.

Specs
. Dimension (blade: 1″/26mm, Piranha closed: 2,4″/6cm)
. Weight: 2,7oz, 19mm
. Price: 19,95$
Now you can say small, light and efficient as a Piranha!

If you are a regular outdoor person this will greatly help you but you might need another blade for long heavy work as because of it’s small size it may be uncomfortable.

I also have the Curve by Gerber (which brings to the plate many different screw imagedrivers and a bottle opener), 9,99$

PS: don’t forget to check it in, as blades even tiny ones are not TSA-approved.
