Jack-Handy-The-Stench-of-Honolulu-Gear-Patrol-Final The Stench of Honolulu: A Tropical Adventure
If you’ve been living under a huge rock for the past couple deades, you might not know who Jack Handey is, and you’ve probably not heard of his brilliant one liner musings as showcased on Saturday Night Live. You’re also probably dead because rocks are heavy and you should have tried a house instead because they have walls to keep the roof from crushing occupants. Look, Handey wrote an absurdist novel about some guys who go to Hawaii in search of treasure. It’s funny. You’ll like it. $14

There are plenty of pockets, it’s water-repellent, and only 12 are being made — by hand — all expertly tailored and at a killer price. $275

Then sit back, smug, and wait for the glory to arrive. $24
Dyson-Dyson-DC49-Multi-Floor-Vacuum-Gear-Patrol-Final Dyson DC49 Multi Floor Vacuum
Space is at a premium in city apartments, but dirt doesn’t really care how much real estate you do or don’t have. Dyson does, though, and they also care about keeping the noise down. This unit is designed to clean any floor surface using the smallest example of Dyson’s digital motor; it also uses Dyson ball tech for easy maneuvering around Ikea furniture. Moreover, it’s acoustically engineered to keep the noise down, lest Ms. Rodriguez downstairs gets all broom-handle happy on her ceiling. (But do consider vacuuming at a reasonable hour.) $533
