Our loyal readers (hey, that’s you!) are savvy shoppers with an eye for the best in modern style, gear, and gadgetry. Meanwhile, September is a great month for new releases and new deals alike. Putting all these elements in one place, we’ve compiled a list of products that our readers bought in September 2019.
Prepare yourself for quality EDC, a book on mechanical watches, a hand-crafted wetsuit, and more. We’ve brought you various discoveries in the past, but this time around, you’re the curator of choice products. In fact, it looks like we’ve got some shopping to do ourselves.
Flatrock Sarvo Series 3x2mm Full-Length Steamer
When only the best wetsuit will suffice, accept nothing less than the Sarvo Series from Flatrock. Each one is hand-crafted from 18 panels of Japanese limestone neoprene, resulting in the utmost tier of comfort and versatility. Features include an ezy-glide chest zip for easy entry, soft inner lining, and increased neoprene thickness around the core.
Consider us completely unsurprised that Aussies have been buying this thing in droves.
KA-BAR Knives, Inc Mark 98 Folder
Between its blade of 5Cr15 Stainless Steel and multi-coloured G10 handle scales, the Mark 98 makes for a brilliant folding knife. It opens with a flipper and can be carried either tip up or tip down. Throw in a great price and a lightweight profile and you have yourself some impeccable EDC.
Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge
No one argues with a cold and delicious Old-Fashioned and that’s why the Whiskey Wedge is such a perennial hit. Included in the package is an Old-Fashioned whisky glass and silicone ice form. To use, insert the silicone ice form into the glass and freeze water inside the form.
You get a firm and robust wedge of ice in return, which will keep your Old-Fashioned (or any cocktail) cold but not watered down. The best part? This thing actually works.
