Whether it’s a life-saving piece of equipment in an emergency situation or something that makes the camping trip a little more comfortable, here are our picks for some of the coolest new accessories hitting the market this year.

Omega has long been a leader in diving and waterproof watch design, and the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m watch collection is yet another winner in their impressive history. Omega has combined luxurious design and durable materials with the top-grade functionality and engineering of a premier diving watch.


The Seamaster Planet Ocean, with its water-resistance to 2,000-feet capability, has one of the most impressive depth-ratings on the market. The Planet Ocean offers the world’s premier grey silicon nitride ceramic bezel with orange rubber and a domed, scratchproof sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. It comes standard with an anti-bacterial rubber strap, but offers several different strap options for an additional cost.


3. Yeti Rambler Tumbler

When it comes to finding the ideal beverage holder, the product should be able to flow through the day as you do – keeping things cold when they need to stay cold, and hot when they need to stay hot. The Yeti Rambler tumbler series does just that.

Known for their quality and consistency, Yeti has hit the mark with its Rambler tumbler line. Made of double-walled kitchen-grade stainless steel, vacuum-insulated walls and BPA-free liquid lids, these tumblers can be used for almost any liquid you need to carry.

The Rambler series comes in a number of sizes, including a 10 oz. “lowball” tumbler, and 20 oz. or 30 oz. cup-like tumblers. Whether you’re on your first cup of coffee or your third tumbler of water, the Yeti Rambler has you covered.



4. Baxter Base Camp X Cut-throat Razor

baxter-base-camp-x-cutthroat-razorShaving with a straight razor is not for the timid, and the Baxter Base Camp X Cut-throat Razor embodies all the manly spirit behind traditional grooming. The water-resistant, waxed-canvas and oiled-leather roll-case gives this product a military appeal, and the Tennessee hickory wood handle finishes off the straight razor's rustic and rugged details. Each square point Hart steel blade is produced in northern Michigan where artisans hand grind, mark and sharpen them. Baxter seems to have thought of everything – this set also includes a hex key for tightening the handle pin so the only think you’ll need to bring is a few days’ stubble and good lather.



5. Bitzblade EDC Multi-tool

This tiny handheld titanium accessory boasts several features from a glass window buster, to a screwdriver, to a utility blade. It can fit easily in a pocket or can be linked to a keychain to make it easily accessible.

unnamedThe Bitzblade also has an interchangeable drill composed of six double-sided, stainless steel heads. This indispensable tool also features a carbide tip window punch which you can use during an emergency to break glass. Biztblade’s utility blade is made of 440 stainless steel material and can be easily disconnected without interfering with the other tools. It also comes with a nylon storage pouch for the drill bits and accessories.
