Once a relatively lesser known member of the animal kingdom, the honey badger rose to infamy last year, becoming a legend among critters.

The fanny pack for the 21st century

The RUNNUR is a sort of belt for your upper body. More like Batman's utility belt than the average leather pants-hiker, the RUNNUR offers all kinds of storage compartments for everything from your cell phone to your water bottle. Its look is questionable, but its storage capacity isn't.  Read More

The WaterWear pack allows those in developing countries to more easily transport water

For most of us, access to clean water is just a turn of the tap away, but in many developing countries women and children are often tasked with fetching water and carrying it considerable distances in containers - often on their heads. Aside from the strain this places on the neck and back, these containers can be discarded jerry cans and buckets that originally carried fuel, oils, pesticides, paints and other chemicals that you wouldn’t want mixed with your drinking water. The WaterWear is a collapsible backpack designed to overcome these problems.  Read More
