Stash Reef Sandals

Stash Reef Sandals

Unless you’re going to the beach with a larger group, you are going to run into a problem: you are in the water, while your stuff is not; how do you make sure it won’t get stolen? The Stash Reef Sandals offer the solution: they have a little “drawer” inside the sole where money, credit cards or keys can be stashed. And who ever heard of flip flop thieves?

The sandals are a great idea! I always fear that my wallet or keys get stolen when Im at the beach. Now when I leave my towel to take a dip in the ocean, I wont have to fear anymore! Unless someone actually takes the sandals…

Sandals – so practical yet simple. Now I don’t have to worry about my stuff, only the sharks.

Keri Says: September 5, 2008 at 10:42 am

Definatly the sandels. Because we all know swimming suits have very limited space for those little necessities like a stick of gum, drivers license,and maybe a couple of bucks for a cold soda later.

Jack Says: September 5, 2008 at 10:52 am

The spa is the greatest for those who move around alot or just want to change their enviroment for relaxing.

Sean Woods Says: September 5, 2008 at 11:00 am

I am a fairly good photographer with very good equipment but i love my lens baby!! This is one cool item! buy it even if you have just gotten into DSLR photography you will not be disappointed with the things you can do with this inexpensive item. push it pull it or bend it for different effects. it also attaches quickly and comes off just as fast.

Andy L Says: September 5, 2008 at 11:01 am

Sometimes the simplest things are the best – I love the secret drawer sandles!

Jerry Says: September 5, 2008 at 11:24 am

I go with the reppo II, i knows its kinda dorky, but the sandle’s could get lost easy and i would not want my money to go with that, so i know the reppo looks geeky but i think its the coolest out of all of them.

RC Says: September 5, 2008 at 11:45 am

I voted for the lensbaby

John Says: September 5, 2008 at 11:57 am

my vote is for the Vacuum cleaning robot. Its every college kids dream. less work to do…

Bob Easterday Says: September 5, 2008 at 12:49 pm

Wow. A new excuse to show off my 6-pack (and the kegger beneath)

anthony Says: September 5, 2008 at 2:13 pm

I’ll take that Reppo II to the beach, can you say ‘surfing dude’

Jason Says: September 5, 2008 at 2:45 pm

Nobody is going to steal a sweaty nasty fungus encrusted pair of surfer’s flip flops! I voted for the Stash Reef Sandals because that’s just a cool idea to enhance a product we use all the time. Just be careful your hidden “drawers” don’t fall out on the way down to the surf!

BobMac Says: September 5, 2008 at 3:01 pm

Boring, but the only thing I’d actually want is the vacuum.

Wayde Says: September 5, 2008 at 3:43 pm

Sandals – way cool…. dude

A vote for the vacuum. Anything that prevents me from having to clean my house is a winner.

Doug Says: September 6, 2008 at 12:39 pm

Definitely the Lens Babies. I’ve seen one in use at my neighbor’s home (the grass is greener over there) and this might be under the ol’ Christmas tree this year.

chris Says: September 9, 2008 at 4:58 am
