The Floyd Shelf
Two vise clips and creative freedom: the Floyd Shelf can turn any flat surface into a dependable shelf. The two clamps come in three finishes (white, black, red) and can work with materials up to 1 5/8 inches thick, and its vertical lip acts as a natural bookend. $85

TravisMathew Glass Ping Pong Table
Make no mistake, this isn’t some run-of-the-mill foldable pong table that can be wheeled into a vacant corner. The surface is 300 pounds of pristinely polished glass; it’s not going anywhere quick. Each handmade table comes with two custom paddles, a wine bucket and 100 TM ping pong balls to rally with. Want something unique? Get this. travismathew.com

Patagonia Gunnison Gorge Wading Pants
Finally, wading pants that will allow all the passing trout to admire your waist. Made with Patagonia’s four-layer “H2No” fabric (say it aloud), Gunnison Gorge Wading Pants are lightweight and breathable, with Single Seam Construction that allows for better mobility than your average waders; just because you’re in the woods doesn’t mean you have to walk like a bear. $299

Three models are available: a 16GB and 32GB wi-fi-only model ($399 and $479, respectively), and a $599 LTE model. $399+

Its thick body, made with brown pull-up leather is fortified with gray 100 percent merino felt reinforcements and a combination of natural oils. Wouldn’t look too out of place carrying a yoga mat, either. $145
