Canadian artist and designer Stuart Sproule, whose website is just a litte hard to navigate, has developed a line of clothing products called flee. Using high-tensile materials like Dyneema and kevlar, Sproule's designs make a city into a modern urban playground.

The flee collection includes four product types (which, as far as I can tell, are not available for purchase):
- escape: a collection of handbags made of knotted climbing rope, harnessing, and carabiners,
- swing: a courier bag that doubles as a swing,
- challenge: a jacket that doubles as a climbing harness,
- suspend: a pants-suspenders combination that can be used as a swing.

This is some pretty cool stuff. And that's not something you'll hear me say very often about things originating from the country that emulates everything American and still hates the U.S. with a passion that burns like the tires in a Mexican trash heap (that is, endlessly, scorchingly, and with a thick cloud of black smoke that meanders over the border and into the blue skies of America).

    I want a tie that turns into a parasail . . . with a motor. Or underpants that, when you flip inside out, convert to an M1A1 Abrams Battle Tank
