Coolingstyle Is Probably The First True Air Conditioner For Campers

Camping is cool (but literally). What is not cool is the sizzling heat, the mosquitoes and all. If those are the factors that prevented you from stepping out of the comfort zone, then perhaps this little guy here, a portable air conditioner called Coolingstyle, will make you change your mind. There’s no fancy moniker here. It is just a portable air conditioner that does what it is supposed to do and more. It is not only chic, but also very functional.

Tentsile Upcoming Tent Will Have Land, Air And Sea Covered

Tentsile, best known for “tree tents,” is going to have a new tent which we can only describe as “all terrain.” We all know Tentsile is not just regular tents, but it can also be suspended among trees to elevate your camping experience (like quite literally) and soon, you’d be on water too with Tentsile Universal Floating Shelter/Tent. You can use it as a regular tent on the ground or suspend it among trees like it can before, but with an inflatable base, it will float too, thus making this tent one of the most versatile camping gear, if not the most versatile.

Eclipse Is Probably The Craziest Morphing Nano Blade EDC Knife Ever

How small can an everyday carry knife gets for it to remain usable? Well, apparently, the answer is very, very small as proven by Eclipse Morphing Nano Blade EDC Knife dished out by Fulcrum Knives. When collapsed, it has a round form that is a tad larger than a Walking Liberty silver dollar coin and measures mere 6 mm thin. Looking at how it opens and closes, I have to concur with its creator that it is the most innovative EDC knife we have seen thus far.

Cardboard Camping Tent Solves The Problem Of Plastic Tents At Festivals

OK. This comes as a news to me. Pardon me because, I have never attended festivals that required me to pitch a tent. I am talking about music festivals where cheap plastic tents are prevalent. The use of tents appeared to be harmless – that is after the festival ends. Festival goers tend to ditch their tents right there and then, thereby resulting in a pile of plastic waste that is hardly environmental-friendly. Understanding this, a Dutch company, KarTent, wants to change this and they intend to do so with KarTent, a temporary accommodation that is made out of cardboard.

Die Mosquitoes Candle Keeps Mozzies From Destroying Your Idyllic Day

Not all people love the great outdoor, but no one adores mosquitoes. That’s for sure. Mad scientists may beg to differ though, especially if the mozzies were sealed inside a prehistoric amber. Anywho, mosquitoes are bad (mostly), but not all of them and some of them actually plays an important part in the larger ecosystem. It is indeed a Hedgehog’s dilemma. Regardless, no one would want these pesky blood suckers to dampen their day which is why there is Die Mosquitoes Candle. Continue reading Die Mosquitoes Candle Keeps Mozzies From Destroying Your Idyllic Day

Max Pump 2: A Tiny Pump That Will Literally Save Your Breath

What is the first thing you do when you reach the campsite after setting up your tent and the cosy outdoor air mattress? Probably sleep. Why? Because you are probably out of breath from inflating the bed, either using a hand pump or by the power of your lungs. Not exactly the scenario one has hoped for when in the beautiful great outdoor, does it? This is where Max Pump 2 thinks it can help. Max Pump 2 is a breath-saving camping/traveling gadgets that take the legwork out of inflating anything thing that needs to be inflated, be it a boat or a mattress.

COMBAR – A Very Serious Survival Multi-tool With The Look To Match

A pocket-size multi-tool can come in handy when you are out in the wild, but we shouldn’t kid ourselves because a pocket knife is not going chop woods. It simply don’t cut it and that’s precisely why ex-special operations veterans over at Aclim8 Inc. designed the COMBAR. No. It is not a crowbar, although it may sounded like one. COMBAR is a new kind of multi-tool that defies the convention of being small and handy because, in reality, bigger is always better.

I Can’t Believe I Am Saying This… But This Miniature Cleaver Is Cute

The word ‘cute’ is hardly applicable to knives, but the Blanka Pocket Cleaver Knife by JHO Knives is exactly that: cute. The cuteness is not immediately apparent until you realize that it is actually has a big blade form of a cleaver, but at a size that fits in the palm of your hand (it measures just 13 cm or about 5.12 inches). It is that small, which kind of qualifies it as a pocket knife. The only thing about this “pocket knife” is, it is fixed blade; not foldable or retractable, and it is a kitchen knife that is also capable of chopping branches and wood if the need arises. Continue reading I Can’t Believe I Am Saying This… But This Miniature Cleaver Is Cute

Caswell “Morphing Karambit” Utility Knife Makes Switchblade Looks A Toy

Calling all pocket knife and avid camping enthusiasts. This is a premium pocket knife you will want to have in your knife. I know. The look is impressive, but the Caswell “Morphing Karambit” (MKV2) Utility Knife impresses with more than just the alien-ish appearance. It is how it flicks open when your hand is securely holding it. Made no mistake, though. This isn’t a switchblade. It is not an automatic knife, nor is it an assisted-open knife (which are illegal in many places). Continue reading Caswell “Morphing Karambit” Utility Knife Makes Switchblade Looks A Toy

Kiwi Dude Cramped A Tiny, Working Kitchen Inside A Peugeot iOn’s Trunk

To be honest, I have no idea if I should file this under ‘Living, Camping’ or ‘Autos, Cars’ because, New Zealander Gavin Shoebridge’s (AKAKiwiEV.com) kitchen-in-trunk is part car mod, part camping hack, or something of sort. So, yeah. Gavin did something almost unimaginable here: he actually installed a fully functional kitchen into the back of his electric car. And mind you, he did it on a car, not a van. Or should we say, a very, very tiny electric car. The very, very tiny electric car here is a 2011 Peugeot iOn which, if you think about it, is quite a feat in itself given the size Gavin has to work with. I mean, seriously, there was clearly no luxury of space like a van or SUV has. Continue reading Kiwi Dude Cramped A Tiny, Working Kitchen Inside A Peugeot iOn’s Trunk
