Flycraft Stealth

Two things we love doing here at The Man's Man: Rafting and Flyfishing. In the Fall when the water drops and the rivers become more technical it is essential to have a light, narrow boat to navigate the rock gardens. The Flycraft Stealth is a perfect option to float later in the season and to get to those more remote fishing spots that the bigger rafts and boats just can't get to. The Flycraft Stealth weighs in at less than 100 lbs. without the oars and basket making it easy for one person to handle, pack, and load. It comes in at 12'6" long and a mere 46" wide allowing you to float and maneuver just about any type of water. If you're more into the flat water scene you can order the optional motor mount for the back and attach a smaller motor. From the frame to the raft material, looks like Flycraft is doing it right. We attached a video for your viewing pleasure.

Polar Pen

The Polar Pen is the first pen made entirely of magnets. If you are anything like us, we like fiddling with pens. The Polar Pen takes fiddling to a whole new level. You can waste some serious time playing with the extremely strong magnets that make up the Polar Pen. Check the video below to see the "revolver" and the "spring". The Polar Pen is compatible with a couple different refills but the Uni-ball Signo UM-1 is the recommended refill. You can pick yours up by clicking the link below. Yeah you can get a cheaper knock off on Amazon but we can guarantee it won't be the same quality.

Mountain America Gourmet Jerky

We have consumed our fair share of jerky here at The Man's Man. When we are on the river... we have jerky. When we are on a backpacking trip... we are packing jerky. We will be the first to admit that all jerky is NOT created equal. I guess you can say that we have turned into jerky snobs. This stuff that they sell at the corner gas station or the local big box store just doesn't cut it anymore. That brings us to Mountain America Jerky out of Colorado. Chuck Watson (The Chief Jerky Officer) and his crew over at Mountain America Jerky have been turning out quality, gourmet jerky since 1997. The secret to their great tasting jerky is that you won't find added preservatives, MSG, or nitrates that the other guys add to their meat. Also, Mountain America Jerky is totally handmade from the slicing, the marinating, the smoking, and the packaging. They do this on the daily assuring that each shipment of jerky is fresh.

Survival Laces

The Survival Laces by Wasatch Outdoors aren't your typical boot laces. The 550 paracord laces conceal a 4 inch flammable tinder strand and a ferro rod for spark. Just cut the metal tip of the lace to access these items and start a fire. As for the lace itself..... anyone that is familiar with paracord knows that it can be used for several different survival situations. But that's not all.....there's also some fishing line concealed in the lace. Obviously these laces would be used in a "worst case scenario" situation but definitely a great addition for any outdoorsman. The 15 dollar price tag makes it an affordable addition. The Survival Laces will come in 5 different lengths to accommodate different boots and will be available in two flavors (Black and Olive Drab). Pick yours up by clicking the link below. We have included a video for your viewing pleasure.
