Kula Cloth

Kula Cloth, where have you been all our lives? This simple yet sublimely designed piece of cloth is not only a women’s backpacking essential, but also a proven convenience for road trips and other adventurous endeavors. It’s even useful at home in support of green living!

This “pee cloth extraordinaire” far surpasses the usual bandana or swatch of flannel. It’s made from advanced silver-infused textiles purposely intended to be in contact with the human body. Amazingly, its one layer of silver absorbent fabric is equal to three layers of microfiber terry and six of french terry. Of course, the cloth boasts antimicrobial properties, and its high-tech textiles resist odor. Retro-reflective thread makes it easy to find in the middle of the night, and its nifty double snap feature makes it a breeze to fold up discreetly when not in use.

So, bid …

Bontrager Blaze WaveCel MTB Helmet

Earlier this year — and to much acclaim — Bontrager unveiled groundbreaking helmet technology called WaveCel. This revolutionary material is proven to be up to 48 times more effective than standard EPS foam at preventing concussions from common cycling accidents.

Standard foam helmets are designed to protect against direct impacts. But most cycling accidents actually result in angled impacts. WaveCel takes this important distinction into account. Its collapsible cellular material absorbs energy in multiple ways and then disperses it in a remarkably effective way resulting in much safer cycling protection. Is it comfortable? Indeed it is. And with several colors and styles to choose from, you’ll look smart no matter what type of cycling you do.

1. Fireside Outdoor Pop Up Fire Pit with Heat Shield

Imagine being able to set up a fire pit anywhere in less than a minute. That’s the cool thing about the Pop Up Fire Pit from Fireside Outdoor: it packs into a small bag and sets up quickly wherever you need a low-maintenance campfire. What makes this portable campfire so enjoyable is the stainless steel mesh that the logs sit on. Strong enough to withstand 125 pounds of wood, the mesh provides oxygen to the fire from below, creating a hotter burning fire that creates more warmth. We recommend you spend a little bit more and purchase the optional heat shield. The heat shield allows the Pop Up Pit to be set up on the grass or concrete without leaving any sort of brown marks, allowing for S’mores on the lawn and worry free backyard …

Gear We Love: Four Wheel Campers

This pop-up camper is the perfect fit for weekend warriors and full-time adventure pilgrims alike.

Four Wheel Campers

While the basic truck-mounted camper dates back to at least the 1920s, it was Dave Rowe who designed the first lightweight pop-up camper in the early 1970s. This launched Four Wheel Campers, the best truck-mounted camper shells we have seen. With the ability to squeeze down into “low profile mode” for driving around, Four Wheel Campers (FWCs) pop up to a generous 6’6’’ of headroom, creating a mobile adventure platform with a bed, a kitchen, and many other amenities depending on which model you choose.

Four Wheel Campers work equally well for weekend warriors or full-time adventure pilgrims looking for a smarter way to pursue the #vanlife. If you do some online research comparing Sprinter vans, Airstream-style trailers, and truck-mounted Four Wheel Campers, you’ll see what we mean. Four Wheel Campers provide an extremely …
