Friday Gear Report: Spy Coins

afrankelSurvival, Survival Gear

This week we bring you hollow spy coins for hiding important data or messages and the Zippo Hand Warmer.

Hollow Spy Coins

These days spy tools have all gone high tech… don’t get us wrong, it’s pretty cool to packet sniff someone’s network to ferret out secrets, but it just doesn’t have the same spy flavor as using a tiny camera to take covert photos for later conversion to microfilm. That’s why we love these retro style Hollow Spy Coins. Each coin is precision hand milled to create a secret compartment inside. Once closed, it’s virtually impossible to distinguish these spy coins from a regular coin. Store your secrets then pass it off to your undercover contact as pocket change… no one will be the wiser. The half dollar is even capable of storing a micro SD card. Just think, gigs of data in a coin… 007 would be so jealous. Hollow Spy Coins are available via ThinkGeek.

Zippo Hand Warmer

Being cold sucks. Sure, it’s fun for the first few seconds. “Wow!” you exclaim, taking a deep breath. “It sure is BRISK out here!” Ten minutes later, you’re freezing your posterior off and want to be snoozing on a bearskin rug in front of a fire, preferably after having quaffed a giant mug of hot cocoa. This is extra difficult when you’ve committed to being in the outdoors for a long time, like for a football game, hunting trip, or ski weekend. Who says you can’t enjoy the great outdoors and stay warm? The Zippo Hand Warmer is a rugged, metal hand warmer by the folks who make our favorite brand of lighter. It has a high-polish finish and a sleek, thin design so it easily fits into pockets, and it’s virtually odorless (great for hunters!) and stays warm for up to 12 hours. Plus, it’s reusable with Zippo lighter fluid and includes a convenient filler cup and warming bag. Whatever you’re doing out there in the cold, keep a Zippo Hand Warmer in your pocket and you’ll stay happy and warm doing it. Zippo Hand Warmer available via ThinkGeek.
