Humans. We resist change. We hate to alter our routines. We don’t like when we have to do something different. Something in our wiring makes us touchy and skeptical whenever circumstances change and we have to adjust with them. But there’s one exception to that rule, one glaring and undeniable exclusion that transforms us into giddy little school children on Christmas morning. It’s that elated feeling we get whenever we discover a new piece of gear, especially if it’s something we’ve been wanting for years. Sports enthusiasts are prime suspects for this childlike glee. We just love discovering new stuff that will make our activities of choice easier or faster or better. Sometimes a new product can be the answer to all of our problems. Here are some of the latest and greatest innovations in outdoor sports. Is one of these a must have for you?
Sometimes you take one look at a product and can just tell it’s going to be a hit, it’s inventor will become a millionaire and you will be green with envy. Line Cutterz is one of those very products. Fitting on your finger just like a regular ring, Line Cutterz is a “sleek, adjustable ring with a double-sided blade perfect for quick and efficient cutting of mono-filament and braided fishing line.” That’s right, it cuts fishing line! How many times have you had to fumble for a knife or shears in order to cut away a tangle or excess line? With this simple and ingenious product, the days of fumbling and bumbling are over. Especially beneficial for night fishing when you can’t see what the heck you’re doing!
The Ocean Safety Solar Still
This one should have been included in my recent post about products that will save your life. There are many different devices that will help you purify otherwise undrinkable water. The Ocean Safety Solar Still is unique in that it uses passive solar technology, meaning you don’t need any external power to run it. Just let the light and compact inflatable ring float on the water’s surface and distill pure drinking water from the sea or any other impure water sources.
Gota’GoTM Personal Care Device
When you gotta go…Guys, we’ve all been in situations where we can’t readily relieve ourselves. The agony! There are countless occasions in our outdoor sporting endeavors when the call of nature is just going to have to wait. Have you ever had to unroll your waders to take a leak? Not fun. Here’s the solution, short of wearing adult diapers or spending hundreds on a relief zipper: Gota’GoTM Personal Care Device. Just insert and strap in on and you’re good to “go.” I only have one complaint…where’s the female version?
The Incredible Bra
Now here’s one for the females! Wearable technology has had its ups and downs lately, with most people still dubious about whether to take the plunge. For the most part, wearables suffer from two problems: Why do we need them and, more importantly, why are they so cumbersome? The Incredible Bra answers both of those questions. Fitness tracking bras are not new, but ones that look sleek and sexy, like this one, are. It has embedded sensors that measure the wearer’s heart rate and other vital signs without anyone knowing. Pretty cool. Unfortunately for now it’s just a sensor. The actual monitor would be sold separately.
GPS Golf Ball
If you are anything like me, then you lose golf balls. It’s one of the biggest reasons why I don’t hit the links as often as I would want. I just can’t keep spending good money on golf balls that disappear on the first swing. I know tons of people like me, people who would love the RadarGolf GPS Golf Ball. The high-performance balls are implanted with a tiny microchip. Using GPS technology with a range of up to 100 feet, the locating device emits a tone that gets faster the nearer you get to the missing ball. Now if I could get one for my phone.
