Loaded with pockets and thoughtful features, the creators of the Bwindi tent have focused on the details so you can focus on doing good works.

• Built for travel, fieldwork, and adventure

Carbi - Light Without Limits

1500 lumens is a lot of lumens, and the Carbi seems like a versatile and useful headlamp. While the video makes it appear a little chunky, the headlamp itself weighs just 2.75oz. At $179 (typically it sells for $358) its certainly an investment.

 

Enjoy your favorite sports with Carbi, an innovative headlamp that eliminates the well-known tunnel effect found in all conventional lamps.

  • 1500 lumens
  • FLOOD light @210 degrees: NO TUNNEL EFFECT
  • SPOT light @150 meters

  • SMART Battery: 48 hours @45 lm | 1h40min @1500 lm

By Hand, The Film

Almost unfathomable... 2,200 miles from Alaska to Mexico... HAND PADDLING PADDLE BOARDS. Crazy? Incredible? Inspirational? All of the above?

'By Hand’ is a feature length adventure documentary film about twin brothers that paddled 2,200 miles without support. In an attempt to escape comfort, reconnect to the natural world and set a new bar for ocean adventure, twin brothers Casey and Ryan Higginbotham made a decision that would reshape their lives. On March 18th, 2016 they embarked on a paddle from Alaska to Mexico with 18' paddle boards. The brothers carried nothing more than two dry bags of gear each and a camera. No support boats, no paddles, and nothing similar to gauge from. Nothing like this has ever been done.

I am wondering about the sizing, that are loose fitting, an not tight like a women would wear. I do do a lot of traveling, and especially out doors, in the nature an woods.
