MNTL Must-Have 7 [October 2016]

MNTL Must-Have 7 [October 2016]

New? Start here. | This post contains affiliate links (what is this?)


Welcome to the MNTL Must-Have 7, our monthly post sharing the 7 coolest products of the month, hand-picked by the Mantelligence team from the thousands of cool things for guys we see each month.

…And these are October’s coolest items:


1. Go-Sun Sport Solar Oven

This camping essential allows you to cook without propane or electricity, using just the power of the sun.

Just wrap whatever meat or veggies you want to cook in the inner tube, unfold the solar panels, and the heat from sunlight (even in the winter) quickly cooks your food through in as little as 20 minutes.

It’s an incredibly useful tool for camping… or any time you don’t want to use energy.


2. Tani SilkCut Boxer Brief

By now, you guys know we love this underwear.

This is the essential men’s underwear… it’s extremely comfortable (due to its naturally soft Micro Modal fabric), it works hard to keep you cool and dry (with powerful sweat-wicking technology), and best of all, it’s insanely flattering (girls love the way it looks).

If you’re going to upgrade your underwear soon (and you should), get the comfortable, hardworking, and highly attractive SilkCut Boxer Brief.


3. Industrial Concrete Copper Table Lamp

It’s not always easy to find home goods that look truly manly… but this handmade industrial-style table lamp fits that bill exactly.

The lamp is made of copper and concrete (which actually blend together beautifully), and its caged Edison bulb adds the final industrial touch to this rugged, functional light.


4. 30 mm A-10 Warthog Shell Shotglass

Almost every guy’s home has a few shotglasses around…

…but we bet not many have shot glasses made of actually fired Warthog aircraft shell casings.

Each one of these incredibly cool shot glasses was collected after the shot was fired, then rigorously cleaned (so they’re completely safe to drink from), and some are even painted different colors to suit your exact tastes.

5. Amazon Echo Dot

The Amazon Echo is a voice-controlled device that uses Alexa (an Amazon virtual assistant) to let you wirelessly play music, control smart home devices, set alarms, etc. … and the Amazon Echo Dot is a compact (3″ x 3″) version of that technology.

It’s an incredibly helpful item to have around the house… you can place it in any room (or place multiples in multiple rooms) and ‘wake it up’ to do what you want just by talking to it. Pretty cool, right?


6. Quip Electric Toothbrush

We’ve talked about how great the Quip Toothbrush is before

…and if you (like a lot of guys) have trouble remembering to brush your teeth twice a day (or you know you don’t brush well enough)… Quip is going to save you a lot of pain/trouble at the dentist.

The sleek, modern-looking toothbrush sticks right to your mirror (and actually looks good there), and gently reminds you while you brush to reach each part of your mouth (check out how it works here).


7. Kingpin Lights Rechargeable Plasma Lighter

You might not think a simple lighter deserves to be on a list of cool monthly products…

…but what if instead of flame, your lighter set things on fire with a plasma beam?

This lighter does exactly that… meaning that unlike flame lighters, you can use it upside down without burning yourself, the wind can’t blow it out, and it’s completely rechargeable (it runs on a battery that you charge with any USB cable), so you can use the same one for years. Pretty cool, right?
