DeWalt releases two rechargeable lithium ion batteries, the most adventure-friendly portable Bluetooth speaker (maybe), the Boblbee GT 25L daypack and more.



Boblbee GT 25L
In some cases, the best travel companion isn’t a guide or best friend — it’s a pack. The Boblbee GT 25L, a Point 65 Sweden product, specializes in rugged travel (think backcountry skiing or mountain biking). On top of Level 2 spine protection, the pack also has a protective ABS shell that reduces impact by 88 percent. This way, it basically acts as a helmet for you back. Other specs include a water-repellent top cover, a sail-grade bungee cord lock, and room to hold a 15-inch laptop. packs.point65.com

UE Roll Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Rugged Bluetooth speakers are nothing new, but the UE Roll is more travel friendly than most. It’s the size of a large belt buckle and can be attached to any item of clothing via its built-in bungee cord. The Roll blasts out audio in every direction, has a wireless range of 65 feet, a 9-hour battery life and is waterproof enough to be submerged. $99

VICE Golf Lone Champ Hat
With the US Open kicking off this Thursday, VICE Golf has released a limited-edition ball cap. The snapback features a “lone fir” on its side, commemorating the single tree that’s on the Chambers Bay course. In addition, each hat will have an unique American stars-and-stripes motif — meaning that no two will be alike. And like all of VICE Golf’s products, this hat can only be purchased online. $25

Porter X Mastermind 2-Way Duffel
To celebrate the 80th anniversary of Yoshida & Co., Porter and Mastermind have teamed up to make the 2-Way duffel. It incorporates Porter’s signatures black nylon twill outer, with Mastermind’s Skullcandy icon and style. Each duffel also has a camouflage inner lining. yoshidakaban.com

Gonçalo Campos Times 4 Coffee Table
The Times 4 Coffee Table gives owners the ability compartmentalize their valuables. Its pivoting system creates four different storage drawers that are concealed with a simple rotation. The table, which is manufactured in France (specifically in the regions Pays de la Loire and Nord Pas de Calais), has a solid steel frame and is made with beechwood. The table can be purchased in four different colors and will be electronically numbered as a mark of authenticity. www.polit.fr

DeWalt Bluetooth Tool Batteries
DeWalt has released two lithium ion batteries: the 20V MAX* 2.0 Amp (DCB203BT) and 4.0 Amp (DCB204BT). Each has Bluetooth capabilities, is rechargeable, and comes with a three-year service warranty. They are designed to connect workers more closely with their power tools. They shut off (and stay that way) when their users go out of range, preventing both theft and mishandling. dewalt.com ()
