BioLite, My iPhone Too!

Little things like this make many people happy, including me. No more fuel to lug around and who does not travel with a phone anymore, you are tracking, geo'ing, surfing and the worst taking calls, in the end your phone will be charged and your meals cooked all in one unit, oh you can use it to work a USB light. 

Forget the fuel. Our stoves cook your meals with nothing but the twigs you collect on your journey, eliminating the need for heavy, expensive, polluting petroleum gas. It’s quick to light, fast to boil and clean to use.

Charge your gadgets. By converting heat from the fire into usable electricity, our stoves will recharge your phones, lights and other gadgets while you cook dinner.

Have fun. Like a campfire, you can sit around the CampStove and watch the flames dance as you roast marshmallows and tell stories with friends. 

Stay green. By using renewable resources for fuel instead of petroleum, you're reducing your carbon footprint. You'll also keep fuel canisters out of the landfill. 

Be prepared. The CampStove isn't just for camping; it's great to have on hand when the power goes out in a storm or other natural disasters. You'll be able to cook and keep electronics charged while power lines are down.

Support a better world. Half the planet cooks on open fires, leading to 2 million premature deaths each year and contributing to global warming. We're using the same technology inside the CampStove to bring clean, safe energy access to families across the developing world.

Magrette a New Zealand watch company, has some wonderful designed watches. The Regattare, is simple, yet elegant, rugged and sophisticated. A watch that can be worn everyday. It has automatic movement, and two bands, rubber and leather. The bezel works a bit different than normal, you adjust it with a turn of the adjustment dial, like you would the time, eliminating any problems you might have while underwater, like bumping it or rubbing up against something, turn the bezel to a different time.

One concern I have, after wearing the watch for a couple hour of receiving it the pin came out, watch dropped to the floor, lucky I was on a carpet. I have set Dion a message, let's hope he gets back to me. I will keep all posted. A nice screw in pin like other watches of this quality would have been a better choice, especially if you are changing the bands often.

Love These Glove Or Are They Mitten

So having a mitten or glove has always been a preference for many. You either can't tie your shoes or you can, scratch your head or not, you get the idea. This design from CAMP-USA, the price is excellent as well, $80. 

CAMP USA is the exclusive US importer and distributor of CAMP Technical Adventure Equipment, the 120 year-old Italian climbing and mountaineering brand.
From our offices just outside of Boulder, we occupy our time obsessing over gear, taking care of customers, and exploring the Colorado rockies. Lunchtime romps in the Flatirons, morning alpine climbs in Rocky Mountain National Park, and dawn patrol ski tours on Loveland Pass keep us honest.
In addition to our small and dedicated staff, we rely on our athletes and customers for feedback and that not-so-subtle kind of pressure climbers like to exert when they talk about gear. If you have feedback or need anything from us, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for visiting.

• Updated for 2011
• Ski Mountaineering Competitions, Winter Running
• Attached wind shells hide away in a pocket on the wrist
• Durable synthetic leather palm
• Grip’R pads on thumb, index finger, and palm for superior grip
• Reinforcement patch to prevent abrasion from pole straps
• Terry wipe on thumb
The ultimate glove for spring ski tours and races! For pre-dawn starts and above tree line ridges when the fingers need a bit more protection simply pull out the hidden wind mitts. The coated ripstop nylon Windmit’N covers the fingers and thumb while leaving the palm exposed for good grip. The G Comp Wind is also a great glove for cycling in foul weather.

Who Wants A Slegoon? I Do



Slegooning is a new winter sport in which participants travel down a snow-covered slope in single person sledge-type crafts, called Slegoons, in full-contact races. They can continue even when overturned.

The Slegoon won first prize in the UK IOM3 Design Innovation in Plastics competition 2003, sponsored by Bayer AG, and has received international press, including Blueprint magazine.

It was recently featured on Core77 and, resulting in hundreds of other blogs picking it up.

Ok, if you have ever skied in Switzerland you know they have sledging yes sledging on most mountains, some even have courses set up, well this would be wild, crazy to take on the Swiss Alps. Hope they start to product. would be great to pull behind a quad as well.

    Back Country Access, Stay Afloat on the Slopes

    Safety on the slopes is important, first we all started to wear helmets, great move. Now if you are going back country and hucking yourself off cliffs, well BCA (Backcountry Access), they have what you need.

    Preventing or minimizing burial depth is the key to reducing avalanche fatalities. That’s because the majority of time in an avalanche rescue is spent on excavating the victim. An airbag is designed to keep you at or near the surface, minimizing excavation time.
    Our Float avalanche airbags are the first airbags that are both affordable and easily reusable. A wide network of BCA-authorized refill centers provide unmatched service to Float purchasers. A small 2,700-psi (186 bar) compressed-air cylinder, single-chamber 150-liter airbag, and super efficient venturi system make the Float systems easy to refill, light and affordable.

    MINUS 8, Astro Studio

    So we are all looking at movements of watches, hopefully they are swiss. Well The MINUS 8 brand, consisting of products designed in this West Coast culture, is proud of its position on the world stage and takes its name from this international nomenclature. Time is relative. We are only aware of its passing if change occurs. The MINUS 8 watch references our dependence on change through a series of subtle color shifts, each step only visible in the context of the others. This color shift is achieved through the process of Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD.) PVD is an industrial coating process which is inherently time dependent. A raw stainless piece is placed in a vacuum chamber where a hard coating accumulates over time. More time in the chamber produces a thicker coating and a more opaque color. A new wave of watch designers are starting to hit the market, using swiss movements, putting more focus on design. They are great, Professional Watches, has a great assortment of new and old watches with great reviews. 

    If you are new to the scene check out the directory, to see what you have in front of you. Watch collecting is coming back, so get on the wagon before the prices of some of these new watches gets out of reach.
