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?

  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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.
