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

The Sonic gives you two water-resistant speakers for music

Despite technology's best efforts, headphones and sports just don't mix that well.

The TrekPak is designed to fit easily and snugly in the Deuter backpack

Sometimes you don't have to reinvent the wheel; you just have to add a more functional inflation valve or lightweight spoke.
