Just Say No to Frostbite

Here Comes the Sun

This is it. The lighting is perfect. The view is amazing. Everyone is ready. And… wait. Your phone just died. All the high-tech phone camera’s and equipment in the world can’t help you if your phone dies at the precise moment you were about to take that one picture that completely captures everything your adventure has meant to you.

With the Tough Tested Bigfoot 24,000 mAh Solar Power Bank, you’ll never have to worry about missing the moment again. It has enough capacity to charge most smartphones at least 8 times. Throw in the ability to recharge using only the power of the sun, and you might never need to come back home.

Science Can Be Magical

A thermos is a thermos is a thermos, right? Well not always. The Cauldryn Mug is so much more. This travel mug is Bluetooth controlled through your phone to keep your drink at the exact temperature you love. Forgot your kettle? No problem. The Cauldryn can boil water and even cook freeze-dried foods! With long battery life and easy to use controls, it’s sure to be a favorite.

The Call in the Wild

Phones are a great way to share our adventures with the world. Everyone shares the hatred of “dead zones” where cell reception is nothing more than a faint hope. Unfortunately, many of the most interesting places to explore are found in these “dead zones”. Enter the Weboost Drive Sleek. This device helps phones connect to cell service in places it normally couldn’t due to poor signal strength. Now the important backpacker in your life can update you every night— just like they promised they would.

So, whether you’re chasing adventure half-way across the world, or just in the local park, having the right gear can take the experience to a whole new level. With your bag now packed, the only thing left to do is get out there and explore!
