Recreation in 2012

Today we look at some well designed things intended for use in recreation.


Water Sports
Lakes, rivers and oceans are all there just waiting for you to look at them.  With this kayak you can look at them from a slightly different perspective:

Does she come with the kayak?

Of course, unless the water you're planning on kayaking in is crystal clear or filled with animals who are into swimming right next to the surface, you probably won't see anything underneath this kayak.  Also, once you scratch and scuff the bottom transporting this kayak to and from the water and when you inevitably encounter rocks and other hazards in the water the visibility will gradually decrease.

Here is the link to the manufacturer's website.
 
Hiking
When you're on the go, space in your luggage is important.  While I don't like the zipper on the bottom, I really like the idea of having a pair of shoes that would take up far less space in my bag than a regular sized pair of shoes would occupy.  I imagine that these would work well when traveling somewhere were sandals would be appropriate for most occasions but shoes would be nice to have just in case.

Looks good enough

Folds up tight


[Insert sole/ soul pun]

At $65 a pair from the manufacturer I'm tempted.

  1. Great idea for a kayak! It wouldn't work where I am though cause the waters to dark. I wish cars had see through bottoms! It would be nice to see what road kill looks like close up!

  2. @Bersercules - I couldn't agree more. Kids get borrow your parent's power tools and start cutting holes in the floor of their cars. They will thank you later. I guarantee it.*

  5. wow that is an interesting looking boot! I have some scarpa boots they are supposed to be one of the best hiking boots you can buy and I agree I have over 100 miles on them and they look almost new still no tears or peeling souls or anything.

  6. Very cool shoes! They probably wear out pretty quickly though and water starts getting though the zipper. hmmm...

  12. With shoes like that, I'd unzip them just enough so it looked like a mouth, and then go around making them talk and doing a goofy voice.

    Totally worth 65 bucks just for that.
