Source WXP Hydration System

This is not your typical hydration bladder. Source Hydration Bladders have been battle tested by Special Forces in war. One thing that separates the WXP Hydration System from other hydration packs is its Taste-Free technology that does not affect the taste of water. But that’s not its only great feature. It is a high performance reservoir system that comes with a glass-like liner and is integrated with Grunge-Guard antimicrobial. Its specially designed Storm Valve comes with a no-bite design that delivers 25% more flow than other packs with bite designs. It also comes with a Dirt Shield valve sheath. On top of all that....these things are tough as nails. Source has also developed an adapter for this bladder that allows you to fill the bladder while it's still in your pack using a hose or water bottle. That adapter is sold separately and can be picked up HERE.

KUT Ambrosia Maple/Turquoise Knife

Each KUT knife is hand forged individually, which is why every blade has a little different appearance. Made of Ambrosia Maple,  the handle is ergonomically shaped, and is assembled with multiple strips put together – just like a butcher block. The New Zealand made Svörd blade is hair splitting sharp, and will develop a natural finish over time due to a protective layer of carbon that protects it from rust.

Backyard Ballistics

Clear instructions, diagrams, and photographs show how to build projects ranging from the simple match-powered rocket to the more complex tabletop catapult and the offbeat Cincinnati fire kite. The classic potato cannon has a new evil twin—the piezo-electric spud gun and the electromagnetic pipe gun has joined the company of such favorites as the tennis ball mortar. With a strong emphasis on safety, the book also gives tips on troubleshooting, explains the physics behind the projects, and profiles scientists and extraordinary experimenters such as Alfred Nobel, Robert Goddard, and Isaac Newton. This book will be indispensable for the legions of backyard toy-rocket launchers and fireworks fanatics who wish every day was the fourth of July.

Finex Cast Iron Skillets

The cast iron skillet has been used for cooking for hundreds of years. If you haven't cooked a steak in one you are missing out! There's nothing like cooking in cast iron. Back in 2012 Finex set out to make the classic cast iron skillet more functional and they succeeded on that with their line of skillets. As you can see they started by changing the shape into an octagon giving you 6 different options for pouring. Then they took the handle and created a stainless steel spring handle that dissipates heat and fits nicely in the hand. Finex proudly makes their skillets in the Pacific Northwest, USA. As with every item on The Man's Man click the link below to purchase. For your viewing pleasure we have included a video.

Rhino Laces

You trek in the sun, splash through a shallow river, walk in the snow, and roam in the wilderness… your shoelaces can only take so much. If you don’t want your shoelaces to snap and leave you stranded, you need Rhino laces – the only laces in the world that DO NOT break. You can try to break them, burn them, chop them, or destroy them – but they just don’t give up. If somehow, you manage to break these laces, the company will replace them for free. So if you’re stuck somewhere without any options, you can use them to secure your gear or use them as a pull-cord and they won’t break.
