No more thick bulky wallets with the Ridge Aluminum Wallet + Money Clip; warm up with the portable Kamoto OpenFire Pit; hit the road with Icon’s 424-hp Defender D90; and capture it all with the new Griff Drone.
Ridge Aluminum Wallet + Money Clip
If you’re a guy used to carrying around a thick, bulky leather wallet, get ready to make a big change for the better. That change comes in the form of the Ridge Aluminum Wallet and Money Clip, a one-of-a-kind piece that can accommodate varying numbers of cards and varying amounts of cash thanks to handy design touches.
Part wallet, part money clip, it’s slim and weighs only 2oz., and when you consider that the money clip portion of the device is made with pure aircraft-grade titanium, it’s remarkably effective and durable. It also slides right into your front pocket, and the brand notes that it alleviates lower back pain from lugging around a heavy wallet in the process. For your everyday commute and your adventures the rest of the time, it pays off to have a hefty, tough and effective wallet-money clip combo — that goes for whether you’re dressed casually for the weekend or ready for a day at the office.

Kamoto OpenFire Pit
An outdoor experience is not complete without the warmth and crackling of a lively campfire. Unfortunately, terrain and weather conditions can sometimes limit the feasibility of building this luxury into our outdoors experience. Today that changes with the Kamoto OpenFire Pit.
This portable fire pit is made from stainless and powder-coated steel and quickly unfolds to allow you to build a fire pit pretty much anywhere and anytime. The built-in wind protective sides and ashtray allow for effective combustion and reliable fires while still being nature-conscious and caring for the environment. Available in two sizes, the Kamoto OpenFire Pit also comes with a grill grate add-on for optimal outdoor cooking. [via]

Icon Defender D90
Although production of the Land Rover Defender has officially ended, enthusiasts still get to enjoy sporadic customizations of the legendary vehicle like this one by California-based company Icon. Dubbed the Icon Defender D90, the build is based on a 1995 Land Rover Defender 90 and has been reworked from the ground up over a period of about 18 months.
Notable upgrades include a 424 horsepower LS3 V8 GM engine with an automatic transmission, along with Dynatrac axles, Stoptech brakes, a Mercedes canvas soft top, and custom bumpers with integrated aircraft LED lighting. [via]
Most consumer drones lug along a small camera. Some professional-grade quadcopters can even carry heavier filming rigs weighing dozens of pounds. Still, Griff Aviation’s Griff Drones are worlds apart from other drones when it comes to rated payload. Three three models include the Griff 125, 300, and 800, the number designating the gross weight that each can carry in kilograms, meaning they can lift about 275, 660, and 1,760 pounds, respectively. They do this with a double-decker 8 propeller design, a larger size, and, presumably, big motors and massive batteries considering these things can fly for up to 45 minutes on a charge. They’re controlled by either a standard remote control or a FPV control station. Need one that can carry even more? Griff can build you a custom model, too. What you’d do with one though is another story.
