Five Products to Help You Live Adventurously and Still Be Home for Dinner

Five Products to Help You Live Adventurously and Still Be Home for Dinner

Not everyone has time to take three weeks off of work and live somewhere deep in the wilderness. The hustle and bustle of a 9-5 job with only a few days off a year leaves many of us bored and looking for ways to spice up the days. But many of us don’t want to dive with sharks or jump out of a plane, and many of us need to be home for dinner!

So how can you add some spice to your life without canoeing down the Amazon or climbing Mt. Everest? Check out these five products that will help add some serious adventure into your life, while still letting you be home by dinner time.

Metolius Wood Grips Training Board

Metolius Wood Grips Training Board

    Rock climbing is by far one of the most awesome ways you can add some adventure into your life, but all rock climbers need to start somewhere, and chances are there’s a rock climbing gym located somewhere near you. Rock climbing lessons can be damned expensive, though, so adding something to your living room that can help you train is key.

    Check out the Metolius Wood Grips Training Board. The board is crafted with a bunch of rock climbing holds to help you target your weak spots and improve as a climber. You can easily hang the training board over a doorway in your house so you can work on a variety of climbing techniques. The smooth wood feels good on your hands, and it’s a great workout too. Adding one to your living room will help you prepare for when you can finally hit the backcountry for some serious rock climbing.

    Lifeproof Case

      Not all smartphone cases are created equally. That’s definitely the case for an iPhone case from Lifeproof: these smartphone cases are shock-proof, snow-proof, dirt-proof, and water-proof, meaning they can survive everything from an overturned canoe to being dropped on a city sidewalk.

      Additionally, you can actually take underwater pictures with your smartphone with a Lifeproof case. Hit the river after work, go for a dip, and bring your phone in case you see any sweet fish. Lifeproof backs up their cases with a warranty, so you don’t have to sweat should anything happen to your valuable electronic.

      BioLite CampStove

      BioLite CampStove

        The BioLite CampStove is arguably one of the coolest camping products on the market today. Funded from a successful Kickstarter campaign a few years ago, the BioLite CampStove cooks food using just sticks and twigs you find outdoors. Whether you’re cooking something in your backyard or in the backcountry, there’s no need to lug around fuel.

        The BioLite CampStove takes it a step further than just acting as a stove, however: the stove actually converts the heat from the fire into electricity that you can use to power USB devices, like cell phones, lights, or anything else. The technology is now being implemented on a bigger scale to help combat climate change in many countries around the world.

        Sony Digital Recording Binoculars

        Sony Digital Recording Binoculars

          A good set of binoculars is something that can make adventures 10 times more awesome, and a great set of binoculars can make adventures even more awesome than that. A set of binoculars that records things? Yeah, it exists.

          The Sony Digital Recording Binoculars have the capability to zoom up to 25x while still recording full HD and 3D video. Whether you use them for backcountry animal viewing, bird watching, sports watching, or anything else, the fact that you can record what you’re seeing through the lens is simply awesome. It reduces the need for multiple products if you’re into bird watching, sports photography, or anything similar.

          Poler Napsack

          Poler Napsack

            While at first it might look a little ridiculous, the Poler Napsack might end up being the most practical, comfortable, and all around convenient piece of “clothing” you own. It’s sort of like a sweatshirt/sleeping bag hybrid, with no sleeves and a hood. While it might seem a little bit unnecessary at first, you’ll quickly realize how much  easier life is when wearing it.

            Whether you use it as a post-surfing way to heat back up or a puffy jacket to keep you warm around a campfire, the Poler Napsack will likely become your second home. You can zip up the shoulders so your arms stay warm down by your side, and you can cinch it open and closed at the bottom for your legs.
