Coleman FyreCommander Grill
Coleman’s new HyperFlame compact grill is the perfect addition to your backyard this summer. The new HyperFlame technology boils water twice as fast as previous Coleman two-burners because of the new design that increases airflow to the burner while blocking wind. This particular HyperFlame comes with all the bells and whistles: shelves, removable griddle plates, and collapsible telescoping legs. The 3-in-1 propane stove utilizes its technology, which provides an even heat distribution across the pan. Available for purchase for $249.99
Portable, hands-free and battery-powered, the BBQ Dragon is not just for the barbecue! You can attach it to almost anything and get any fire started without having to stand around hot flames waving plates and blowing. The BBQ Dragon is a beautiful blend of contemporary design and advanced technology. The long, adjustable stainless steel neck allows you position the BBQ Dragon to provide air wherever and whenever you need it. What does it start? Fireplaces, fire pits, smokers, wood stoves, campfires, and charcoal grills. Available for purchase for $59.95.
The PortaFon waterproof smartphone bag can protect any kind of cellphone (with a screen size up to 5.3″) from water, snow, sand, grease and dust. It was originally designed to be used in the pool or sea (up to 100 ft underwater), but customer feedback saw that winter sports were another scenario in which the PortaFon worked perfectly. It’s made out of durable PVC and the locking mechanism is very easy to operate, and miraculously it seals the phone from all-weather while you can still use all the functionality of your phone (including texting, answering the phone, taking good quality pictures and videos). Available for purchase for $12.99
