My Zeiss binoculars for birding are awesome beyond words. When I look through "cheap" binoculars now, it makes me want to scratch my eyes out of my skull.

Its reputation as a libertarian state notwithstanding, TX has not quite embraced decriminalization or legalization of the noble weed...

That's what I thought. You might want to relocate after retirement.

Here's another superior product that my wife liked and she has convinced me that it was a worthwhile addition to the kitchen.

Tiger Thermal Cooker, 2 gal size.

We use it as a passive slow cooker, with the advantage that it can never burn food. Great for simmering bones for broth, making spaghetti sauce, porridge, etc..

Honda inverter generators. Even if you never use one, the bragging rights are sufficient.

Agree on Honda products. Love our Honda jet ski - especially after Honda finally stepped up to replace our flawed turbocharger under the emissions warranty.

My new wife - and her Honda Fit.

American made Pendelton clothing bought used in a thrift stores.

Pendleton stuff in Nebraska City preferably on sale.

Swain's General Store in Port Angeles - Boggs boots, logger jeans with brass buttons and suspenders. Worse for me than the tool aisle in a hardware store.

Kirkland brand.

Winsteads 50's style cheeseburgers/chocolate malts - tough on my cholesterol.

Heh heh heh - And of course Boglehead stuff - in my case full auto lifecycle index fund. And a few DRIPs I haven't quite retired yet.

Oh, how people covet things that they cannot get!

And that applies to smoke as well as "artificial things".

I stick to things that I can find on eBay or Amazon.

Swarovski binoculars.

We were recently able to trade in our old ones (12 years old) for a great price towards the latest model - yay!

At first, i decided not to post to this thread because I probably don't know about any best products. I buy cheap, on sale....decent stuff, not the best. EXCEPT, LL Bean is awesome.

Their products are great, and if you are not satisfied, they replace. I know a guy who got a replacement pair of $100 sunglasses because he lost the last pair! That makes me believe that LL Bean is pretty darn special. My FIL would return items three years later and get replacements.

Customer service is top-notch.

It appears you are thinking of this as an RV accessory. If so, allow me to continue in this category.

Blue Ox Aventa LX Tow Bar - 10,000-lb rating
Bilstein Shock Absorber
Hellwig Rear Sway Bar
Blue Ox TigerTrak Track Bar

How do I know these are superior if I only try one brand? Hey, just because...

Well, in the case of the track bar, it's the only thing on the market so it has to be literally #1.

Bilstein is a top choice for suspension component replacement in quality German cars. This includes struts, shocks and related hardware. The Bilsrein TC kit is very popular. Really good stuff.
