This bundle is an affordable collection of handy tools that keeps you ready for the unexpected moments life throws at you, including the "Financial Tool", a wallet-sized 7-in-1 multitool packed with a bottle opener, wrenches, screwdrivers, ruler, and more. Plus, this whole package is even TSA friendly.

Naztech - MagBuddy Windshield Mount


We imagine there are a large number of traffic cops reading this who want you to STOP TEXTING AND DRIVING. Seriously, give it a rest. Going hands free with your phone is the best way you can stay connected and stay safe. The MagBuddy is tone of our newest smartphone accessories, and it's grown very popular. Mount it up on your windshield, and attach the connector either to your smartphone case or to the device itself. Plus, this little gadget is perfect for any of you out there earning extra cash as Uber or Lyft drivers.

Mountainsmith - Lariat 65 Backpack


Here's a work horse for all you backpackers out there. The Lariat 65 is built for getting off the grid for a few days, with enough straps, hooks, and storage space for everything you need for the trail. The main compartment features U-shaped zippered access at the bottom, meaning you don't need to unpack the whole thing in order to get to something you stuffed into the bottom. But the best feature is undoubtedly the shoulder straps, which can be completely shifted up or down on your torso via a Velcro adjustment system. Perfectly customizable.

TITIN - FORCE Weighted Compression System


Looks pretty badass, doesn't it? No, it's not a suit of armor. But it'll help you build your own armor. This unique shirt system lets you apply up to eight pounds of form-fitting gel weights to strategic spots on your torso, which gives you a resistance training workout. Think of it like doughnut on a baseball bat right before you step to the plate and slug one into the upper deck. Read the reviews and find a system in your size and the color you prefer.

Ultimate Ears - Roll 2 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker


Go ahead and float down a river with this little gem. This Bluetooth speaker weighs just over a half a pound and is totally waterproof. But if the warm weather is starting to disappear in your area, all you need to do is head inside and set it up on a table and blast out big, bold sound. And with a nine-hour battery life, you don't have to worry about it going dead on you in the middle of your dinner party.
