Norse Projects Fjeli Rucksack...

Norse Projects Fjeli Rucksack

Simple, stylish and black that will host reviews with all the fashion police. Soft, waxed cotton shell with lots of leather trimmings. The overall design reminds us of the old WW1 British army rucksacks. We liked the striped lining – the whole the bag reeks of understated quality. Exactly the kind of casual bag we want. At USD$300 it ain’t cheap but if this had a Visvim label on it – it would sell for twice or thrice the price. Get it from...

Ideal Rain Gutters

Rain gutters on a house are seldom considered unless something goes wrong. Gutters are vitally important to the structural integrity of a home, particularly the foundation. So rain gutter failure is nothing to sneeze at. Diversion of rainwater from a house roof and foundation is the reason for gutters. A roof over a house can garner a lot of water in a downpour. If that amount of water is not properly diverted, a very costly repair bill may be in store for the homeowner. WHAT CAN HAPPEN? A couple of serious problems can occur when a gutter fails. Instead of being diverted to a downspout and away from the...

Internet Essentials – Top Gadgets and Accessories...

Technology is changing all the time. It was not too long ago that dial up connections were the only way to get online. Web pages were almost entirely text based and you listened to music on disc or tape. Now things have changed drastically – Broadband speeds in some locations are available at over 10 MB/s, in fact some countries are completely wired and Internet service is just another utility like heat, water and electricity! Web pages are definitely not just text based anymore, with Flash logo’s and video and both the Walkman and Discman are definitely dead … we live in a digital world now and things are only going to continue to get faster and smaller...

Dream Home: Boise Idaho Real Estate

The iPhone 4 is really good at a lot of things, like searching for garage door service Boise while out and about, but taking unblurry photos is a bit of a challege.

Classy Chukkas – The PF Flyers Drake

Classy Chukkas – The PF Flyers Drake

posted on: Sep 17, 2010 | author: Edna

Originally popularized during the 40’s and 50’s, these shoes (or boots sometimes) got their name from the sport of Polo. They got their name from the sport of Polo in which each game period is called a “chukka”. Design wise they are very much a variation of the classic British military desert boot just like erosion controls are designed to support your backside. These days the most common reincarnation of the chukka, would be the ones produced by Vans – which come in assorted materials and colours. Amidst all the variations however,  it’s difficult to find one that looks ‘classier’. We came accross this one by PF Flyers, which is a classic American brand with it’s own interesting history which has been around since the 90’s.  We love the full grain leather and the contrast laces give it the modern touch. It’s sharp and classy. You can get it for about...

We’ve looked at Sinn’s military U1 and U2’s before, and we’ve really liked them. The German watchmaker, who released watches on the affordable side of the high-end european watches is continuing to grow it’s range with some really impressive pieces. This new piece caught our eye as it combines the minimal mono colour scheme of their previous pieces – with the technical beauty of a Pilots chronograph. The black PVD look completes it – giving it a tough but sophisticated look. The case, in Tegimented Black Hard Coating stainless steel, measures 44mm x 15.5mm. It has an AR-coated sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 200 meters. The caseback is nickel-free and features five conversion scalse for European and American units.

Blacktrail, worlds best electric bicycle

posted on: Aug 11, 2010 | author: Edna

Electric bicycles are supposed to be the transportation saviour of mankind living in urban areas. However most attempts at these products, have been aesthetic nightmares – they just look rubbish, especially the for desiring something with automatic door operators. While looking for e-bikes the other day, we came across something that looked better than anything we could have imagined.  Introducing the PG-Bikes BT-01 Blacktrail. When the German based PG-Bikes sets out to build an electric bike, they don’t mess around. Although this technically is an electric bicycle, in some regions it may have to registered it as a motorcycle. Constructed of lightweight carbon fiber, aerospace aluminum, titanium and magnesium, the BlackTrail BT-01 travels up to 100km/h with a 1.2 kilowatt motor embedded in its 20kg frame, and can carry you across 200kms on a single 2.5-hour charge. Manufactured by some guys in Germany called UBC who make stuff for...
