A coworker recently lent me their new PowerMonkey Extreme to try out for a camping trip. This portable solar charger and battery combo from Power Traveller is both waterproof and shockproof (waterproof for 30 minutes up to about 3 feet) making it the perfect tool for both paddlers and campers to keep electronics charged.
Despite camping once or twice a month, I never felt like it was worth investing in a quality camp chair. I had bought a pair of $5 brand-less chairs and had been using the one that hadn’t fully broken down after the first use.
On my last camping trip I vowed to try something new for my camp cooking and quickly settled on the instant gourmet camping meals from Backpacker’s Pantry. What attracted me to these lightweight pouches was how easy they claimed to be – just add boiling water and eat!
When it comes to GSI, one should expect ingenious design. Their portable, lightweight cooksets are made to fully equip campers based on their specific needs with integrated systems that pack the maximum amount of utility into the least amount of space.
Get ready to enjoy summer while you take your tunes along with you. Eco X Gear has a couple of great options including the Eco Terra Waterproof Audio System and Audio Eco Extreme Speaker Case.
Meant to perform in both white-water and flat water, cross-over kayaks are popular for their versatility. One such cross-over kayak is Pyranha’s Fusion River Tour complete with a drop skeg, plenty of storage for weekend camping trips & two different outfitting options specific to your intended usage.
The hybrid kayak/paddleboards from Diablo Paddlesports have been making a big splash here at ACK and especially among our local kayak fishing customers who like to fish calm fresh water & saltwater flats. That’s why we were very excited when we picked up Sawyer’s new 3-in-1 Versa paddle, which functions as a kayak paddle, SUP paddle & push pole.
ACK Employee Colter MacKenzie took a three day weekend as part of ACK’s Go Play Day Initiative to get employees adventuring outside and he hit some campsites by the lake with some new gear. One of these items included the Bugaboo Backpacker Cookset from GSI Outdoors and he wanted to share his thoughts about the product here:
