Plastc Card vs. The Coin

Here about a year and a half ago we featured The Coin on our website. We were one of the first backers of the project and FINALLY got our Coin yesterday. Now that we have used it for the last day here is our feedback on The Coin and why we think The Plastc Card is a much better option. First off, The Coin has only worked at 2 locations out of the 8 locations that we used the card. The reason for this major flaw is that The Coin only stores your card number and expiration date in the strip on the back. Alot of the credit card readers out there require your name as well. So it defeats the purpose of putting all your cards on one card if you still have to pack around all the other cards in case The Coin doesn't work. In contrast the Plastc Card will store all information on the card including your full name as it is on your credit card. Here are some other features that make The Plastc Card a much better option over The Coin.                                  1. The Plastc Card will store 20 cards compared to the 8 that The Coin will store. 2. The Plastc Card features a rechargeable battery. Once the battery is dead on The Coin it is garbage and you have to purchase a new one. 3. The Plastc Card comes embedded with a chip that can be activated by an update. This is a huge benefit over The Coin because the nationwide shift to EMV is already underway. The Coin has no chip. 4. The Plastc Card has a security feature that requires you to put in a four digit pin to use the card. We are still waiting to receive our Plastc Card and will update our review as soon as we receive it. If Plastc Card can deliver on the features that they are presenting we have no idea why anyone would even waste their time or money on The Coin. For your viewing pleasure we have included a video to show how the Plastc Card works. If you are interested in Pre-Ordering your own Plastc Card and saving $20.00 bones click the link below.

Artic Trucks 6x6 Hilux Conversion

Artic Trucks has been modifying trucks since 1990 to stand up to the harsh conditions of the Antarctic. The 6x6 Hilux conversion has a couple benefits over the 4x4 version. One is load capacity and the other is improved towing ability. The 3.0L diesel engine in the 6x6 has no issues powering the six 44 inch tires. The bed has been converted to a large deck to pack gear, supplies, etc. For your viewing pleasure we have included a video of the transformation.

Treeline Outdoors Enamel Mug

You may have seen our feature on Treeline Outdoors' roof top tent here. Upon further inspection these guys have other offerings on their site that are pretty sweet. "The River is Calling". One of the reasons our site doesn't get updated as often as it should....These enamel mugs are hand made by one of the few remaining enamel factories in Europe. They are baked 3 times at over 1500 degrees fahrenheit. What that means for us common folk....You can toss these things on a campfire or a camp stove and you won't regret it. There are two different styles of mugs to choose from: "The River is Calling" and "The Mountain is Calling". Pick yours up at the link below.

RESCO Blackfrog Canteen Watch

So.......we have been lusting over RESCO timepieces for quite some time. All RESCO timepieces are built and tested in California making it a true American Watch Brand. The owner is a Navy SEAL that has field tested these watches through every phase of NSW training. Translation: They have been beat to hell and keep going. The Blackfrog features a black finish, black matte dial, and a sapphire crystal. These watches are a limited run piece from a company that definitely focuses on quality over quantity.
