Hobo Tin Can Beer Holders
It’s officially summertime, which means lots of opportunities to drink outdoors. Keep your favorite libation nearby with these Hobo Tin Can Beer Holders ($30/2-pack). Basically tin cans on metal sticks, each measures 28-inches tall, features a crushed bottle cap on the bottom, and comes with a crudely hand-stamped name plaque for marking your territory beverage.
Give your favorite brew a manly mane of (facial?) hair with the Beard Coozie ($7). Made from crafting fur that’s mounted to a stretchy band for maximum beer container compatibility, they feature a “mouth” opening to let a portion of the label shine through, and will instantly make you the coolest drunk at the party.
From the department of How Did No One Think of This Before, we bring you the Rinser Brush ($22). This ingenious toothbrush sports a built-in scoop that funnels water to a small hole on the top, creating an instant fountain for rinsing out your mouth — hence the name. Features include a button to control the fountain, a no-nonsense design, and GreenerStep Snap replacement heads to ensure that the brush stays useful way after its first bristles are shot.
What Is the Difference Between the Bosu Basic & Bosu Pro?
BOSU, which is an acronym for “both sides utilized,” is part balance board, part stability ball and part plyo box. It looks like a stability ball cut in half. The BOSU is unique because you can use it on either side. Place the flat side down to train on the soft balance disc or flip it over and train on the flat surface, which is unstable because of the air disc that supports it.
The BOSU basic and Pro look exactly alike and have the same specifications. The inflatable air disc, or bubble, is blue with a black base. The base has curved protrusions that you can grip as handles. The BOSU basic and Pro models support users up to 350 lbs. The device itself weighs less than 14 lbs., which makes it relatively portable. The base measures 25 inches in diameter and the disc is 12 inches tall when fully inflated.
You can do the same exercises on either the BOSU basic or BOSU Pro. Set the device on the floor with the bubble side up. Stand on it to do basic strength exercises, such as squats, overhead presses or biceps curls. This forces your core muscles to work harder to stabilize your body on the unstable surface. You can also jump and hop on or across the BOSU ball. Flip it over to do pushups with your hands on the base. Stand on the base for a challenging balance exercise.
The BOSU Pro is a newer version of the BOSU device. Although it looks the same as the basic model, the Pro version does have some extra features that make it more durable for commercial environments. It has a larger bladder that weighs 8 lbs and a dually over-molded platform to provide extra strength. The base is covered with a non-marking, non-skid material. The BOSU Pro includes a pump, a guidebook and a DVD. The BOSU basic includes a guidebook and pump.
The BOSU basic includes a 90-day warranty, while the BOSU Pro comes with a one-year warranty. BOSU designed the Pro model to be more durable so it can withstand the increased demands of a commercial fitness setting. The BOSU Pro is more expensive than the basic model.
