Badass t-shirts and gear from Ranger Up

If you’re looking for gear with some attitude you’ll love the t-shirts and other products from Ranger Up. Ranger Up is a military and patriotic apparel company run by veterans with attitude and swagger. They sent us some t-shirts to try out and we loved them. The quality is excellent as the pre-washed and shrunk t-shirts are soft and form-fitting. The shirts also tagless for better comfort. The screen printing quality is also excellent and there are tons of cool shirts to choose from.

Regardless of your political leanings you can find stuff you’ll like, but the in-your-face attitude is reflected all of the phrases and designs. You’ll also find MMA gear as the entire line is consistent with that style. Browse though the selections and you’ll get a feel for the aggressive styling. The shirts will also motivate you to hit the gym as they will show off your assets and also expose any flab in the midsection.

Try out one t-shirt and you’ll likely come back for more. Also, the Ranger Up gear can make a great gift this holiday season for men and women.

Broadway SR boots from Lugz

Lugz sent us a pair of their new Broadway SR boots just in time for the winter season. Lugz has just released this new line called “The Elite Collection” that is “built for the streets.”

The rugged and stylish boots are very comfortable with a cushioned insole and padded leather tongue. The boots feature leather uppers and slip-resistant rubber soles for superior grip,and we liked the all-black look. They’re great for everyday use and you can wear them out as well with jeans. At $69.99 the boots are also a great value.

WOWee ONE Slim is the ultimate portable speaker

Of all the gadgets we’ve tested recently, the WOWee ONE Slim Portable Speaker is one of our favorites. This portable speaker works with all sorts of phones and gadgets, from iPhones and iPads to other MP3 players. It’s about the size of a deck of cards and easily plugs into any device with an audio jack. All of a sudden you can have a party.

It’s amazing how much sound can be pumped out of such a small device. The WOWee turns flat, solid surfaces like tables, counters, bumpers, hoods and truck beds into bass-filled sound systems using patented gel technology. The sound changes depending on the type of surface and you can really feel the base on some surfaces. Try it on different surfaces and see which sounds best.

It’s perfect for events like tailgates as it provides about 10 hours of tunes and can turn your grill/cooler/hood into a high-end sound system for the whole parking lot. It’s also great for impromptu parties as it can fit in your pocket, computer bag or glove compartment. Take it on a trip and have parties in your hotel room or by the pool. The possibilities are endless.

We tested the Slim Power Base version and loved the sound. You can get it at Amazon for $79.99, and other versions are even less expensive. This makes a great gift for the holidays and we highly recommend it!

  

Rugged iPhone case from Ballistic

There are all sorts of iPhone cases out there, so you have plenty of options depending on your needs and tastes. If you’re active or work in an outdoor or construction setting, you should consider a rugged case that can hook onto your belt.

We tried out the new Universal Sport Rugged Pouch from Ballistic and found it to be an excellent option. The iPhone fits snugly into the case and it’s very easy to get to your phone with the case on your side. You can hear your calls with the Soundvent and the Velcro strap keeps the phone in the case. Whether you’re hiking or working, this makes getting to your phone easy and simple, and it’s a much better option than having the phone in your pocket. It’s also much safer as well.

You may not want to use it when you go out to dinner, but for everyday use the Universal Sport is a great option.
