Yellowstone's Mt. Washburn

From the soaring heights of Denali (Mount McKinley) to surreal slot canyons chiseled below the earth's surface, the National Park System comprises some of the most stunning, superlative lands in the United States. To explore all of them would take an incredible amount of time and resources, but the new Nature Valley Trail View website is making it a little easier.  Read More

The Vapur Element comes in three color options: Water, Fire and Wind

The intriguingly named Anti Bottle just got updated. The new Element is purpose built large for the thirstiest customers and features a couple of updates from the original Anti Bottle models. It is the largest Anti Bottle yet, coming in 0.7 liter (24 oz) and one liter (34 oz) sizes, with a wide mouth "SuperCap" to deliver that extra fluid to your body more quickly. It also gets a stronger attachment clip designed to better hold on to your backpack during intense workouts.  Read More

The Pin Light gives you a safer campsite

Pin Lights are an innovative camping concept from a group of designers. The lights are essentially large pins that take the place of tent stakes. Not only do they keep your tent stable in the wind, but they light up your campsite ... so that wee-hour pee doesn't have to be a life-risking affair.  Read More

The large Jompy offers the fastest boiling time - one liter in about 45 seconds

A funny name but an innovative design, Jompy allows campers, backpackers, hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts to get hot water from their hydration packs. The simple device works in conjunction with a hydration bladder and camping stove to deliver boiling water for use in food, beverages and cleaning.  Read More

The Dual V6 with smoke lenses

Attempting to read your watch or bike computer through sweat-fogged glasses while simultaneously keeping half a pupil on the road ahead can be difficult and dangerous. And those expensive electronics don't do you much good if you can't read them. That's why Dual Eyewear has created sunglasses equipped with magnifying lenses that make reading those small, grainy LCD screens a little easier.  Read More

Moby1 is offering a new take on the traditional teardrop trailer, with a range of compact models that are specifically designed for off-road touring. These teardrop trailers are not only lightweight, but also offer campers extra cargo space, a flexible load-carrying platform, a meal preparation area and cooking station, and a standard mattress. Teardrops were most popular during the 30s through to the 50s, but slowly faded out of fashion as campers grew larger and RVs became super-sized. With current fuel prices, however, the teardrop trailer is starting to make more sense for the environmentally-conscious camper.  Read More

Simply called Unavailability, this achingly simple piece of design is a one-man wooden-framed fold-up fishing hut with chicken wire-mesh walls that can be packed with ice by the user to keep out the wind while letting in light.  Read More

The Kill Shot is a proposed camera-equipped replica rifle, that would allow hunters to cap...

Not too long ago, brothers Randy and Michael Gregg were out on a hunting expedition. It was the day after deer season had ended, yet they spied a handsome animal bedded down in the snow. Not wanting to pass up an opportunity, they silently crept up on their quarry, raised their rifle, lined the deer up in the crosshairs ... and then took a picture through the scope with a mobile phone. That photo provided all the proof they needed that they had successfully stalked their prey, without bringing home an illegally-obtained carcass. It also inspired them to create the Kill Shot photo/video-recording rifle.  Read More

This strange looking tree shelter was created by a team of British designers, to provide portable habitation for campers while also minimizing material usage. Dubbed Tentsile, the shelter is a dangling tent that offers similar comfort to a hammock and can be used in a number of environments. The portable shelter employs tension forces to provide a suspended habitat that is protected from wildlife, including insects and snakes, while at the same time providing a secure shelter from the elements. The tent is easy to assemble and can be suspended up high in the tree tops or slightly hovering over ground level.  Read More

Airlite snowshoes inflate and keep you from sinking into snow

Trudging through knee- or thigh-deep snow is far more tiring - not to mention freezing - than walking on solid ground. If you find yourself caught in the middle of a snowstorm without snowshoes, you could get into trouble quickly. Airlite inflatable snowshoes give you a lightweight emergency back-up, that lets you walk atop the snow and get out safe and sound.  Read More
