Beckett Simonon Hoyt Monk Strap Review

Not gonna lie: I have a soft spot for monk straps. Sure, they’re not as formal as oxfords, and you don’t see them worn as often. But if you get yourself a sweet pair, you can pull them off with just about any outfit.

Beckett Simonon just sent me their Hoyt monk strap dress shoes. Get PRAKTICALA’s take by reading the Beckett Simonon Hoyt monk strap review below! And don’t forget to use our exclusive promo cod PRAKTICALA20 for 20% off your order!

Morakniv Pro S Fixed Blade Knife Review

morakniv pro s fixed blade knife reviewI might have a new favorite camp knife.

For everyday carry, I’m still going to pocket one of my folding knives, like the Kershaw Skyline. They’re portable, low profile, and great for incidental cutting and slicing.

But in a camp setting, where it will get used dozens of times a day, in higher-stress applications? I’m pretty much hooked on my Morakniv Craftline Pro S Allround fixed blade. Read our Morakniv Pro S fixed blade knife review to find out why!

Giro Savant MIPS Helmet Review

giro savant mips helmet review

Since getting back into cycling a couple of years ago, I’ve been spending much more time on two wheels. I finally determined it was appropriate to get a new helmet to match my dedication.

My previous bike helmet lasted me almost 10 years. I intended my next one to last me the same – barring, God forbid, any accidents.

After much research, I decided on the Giro Savant MIPS helmet. Continue reading our Giro Savant MIPS helmet review below!

Now that summer is kicking into full gear, I’ve been logging more miles on the bike. In addition to the Poseidon Triton review I posted recently, I also have a new Poseidon Atlas review for you too!

While I’ve been strictly road biking for the last few years, Poseidon hooked me up with their hybrid bike, the Atlas, to take for a spin.

The Atlas offers a totally different, but fun new experience. Check out our Poseidon Atlas review below!

Kershaw Cryo Review (EDC Knife)

kershaw cryo review

Summer is coming, and you know what that means… camping!

While it’s always a good idea to carry a knife on you at all times as part of your everyday carry, spending time on the trail this Memorial Day gives you all the more reason to start packing a blade.

We recently reviewed the Kershaw Skyline knife, which we contend is an excellent choice for EDC. The Kershaw Cryo 1555TI, while very different, also makes a great option, especially for first-timers. Check out our Kershaw Cryo review below!
