The Sharkbanz 2 was recommended by Jessica Parise from ChicExecs.

Using patented magnetic technology that has been researched and tested by marine biologists on predatory shark species for over a decade, Sharkbanz takes advantage of a shark’s unique and powerful electrical sense (electroreception) to cause a highly unpleasant sensation that turns them away. With Sharkbanz, you can enjoy any ocean activity without impacting performance.

They’re designed to be worn on the wrist or ankle. Lightweight and comfortable, they do not affect ocean sport performance, so you can wear one or multiple and no batteries or charging is needed.

The ReadiSpex Eyeglasses and Sunglass Holder was recommended by David Crowther from ReadiSpex.

Just about everyone owns a pair of sunglasses. And just about everyone has had their sunglasses lost, scratched, or damaged because they simply didn’t have a proper place to keep them when not in use. Whether its the lenses getting scratched from keeping your glasses in your car’s cup holder or tearing apart your house trying to remember where you last had them, or even putting your life in danger as you futilely reach for your glasses that have slid from your dash and onto the floor of your car while driving – we’ve all been there!

Enter ReadiSpex – a new and unique solution for keeping your sunglasses safe and secure, where you need them, when you need them, and at the ready. Its innovative folding design allows ReadiSpex to be out of the way when you’re not using it. And at only 3mm thick, it is unobtrusive and looks great. But with one simple flip, ReadiSpex is ready to go. Just insert your glasses for a secure and safe hold.

Best of all, ReadiSpex can be used just about anywhere. With its super-strong 3M adhesive, ReadiSpex will adhere to almost any surface. Just peel, stick, and it’s ready to go. Place it in your car, by your bedside, in your truck or RV, in your school locker, at your desk, or on your boat. Basically anywhere you can think of!

#11 ICON Shane Dorian Signature 5301

ICON Shane Dorian Signature 5301
Who suggested this product?
The ICON Shane Dorian Signature 5301 was recommended by Dominic Amenta from DPA Communications.

Patrick Shane Dorian, 46, is a world-renowned surfer from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. He spent 11 years competing on the World Championship Tour as a professional surfer and is currently considered one of the best big wave riders in the world.

The watches are tough, dependable, water resistant, and like most watches used for hunting, equipped with Swiss superluminova lume on the hands and dial numbers that results in a long lasting glow for reading time in the dark.. The series also features a brushed 316L stainless steel case, case back and uni-directional tight 120 click rotating dive timing bezel that ensures 200 meters of water resistance, and a durable K1 hardened crystal to resist scratching, plus a genuine rubber strap designed for water activities with an attractive design with a hole pattern for ventilation and to disperse water quickly. The strap also has on/off fingernail pull spring pins so a strap change is easy and quick.

“We aimed to take the integrity and legacy that the Szanto brand has built in dependable watches over the years, and put a unique spin on the design that caters to Shane’s deep passion for hunting, while still being ideally equipped to handle the beating a watch can take in huge surf,” said Time Concepts Founder Barry Cohen. “Shane is such a talented and accomplished individual that it came as no surprise how hands-on and involved he was in working with us to arrive at the final design for his watch. We’re so proud of the final product and eager to see the reactions from both surfing and hunting communities.”

“Time Concepts makes stylish and high-quality watches that also have a purpose and point of view,” said Dorian. “I really enjoyed this collaboration with Barry and his team, and think the result is a watch that not only looks incredible but functions perfectly for two major aspects of my life – big wave surfing and hunting.”
