Kimono Sleeping Bag: Wear It, Sleep In It, Stay Warm

Kimono sleeping bag

Kimono? Check. Sleeping bag? Check. Bag full already? Yep. It’s always best to pack light when you’re traveling or camping because nobody wants to lug around a bulky or heavy backpack. If you had a choice between bring a jacket and a sleeping bag, or something that combines both in one neat little package, then which would you go for?

If you chose the latter, then that would be the aptly-named Kimono Sleeping Bag. It is both a kimono that you can wear to stay warm, and a sleeping bag that you can sleep in when night rolls around. Continue Reading

Viteo Shower: Shower From the Ground Up

Viteo-Shower

 

Step out into your garden and into the Viteo Shower to stay cool, even under the summer sun. It’s too nice outdoors to stay cooped up in your room. And because it can get too hot for comfort, it makes sense to have something like this out on your lawn so you can cool down when you need to.

You can switch the sprinklers on and step into their inconsistent spray–or hook the Viteo Shower up to a hose and step onto it to get rained on from the ground up. Your body weight sets of the Viteo’s shower jets, so water gushes up from below and over your head before falling once more like drops of rain.

The Viteo Shower is available online for €750 (about $850.)

Strange, But It Just Might Work: Portable Folding Napkin Table

Foldable Napkin Table

 

Picnics are fun, but it’s hard to eat a decent meal without a table. That’s why most people pack finger food and sandwiches in their baskets instead to prevent any potential mess. A concept by Michael Jan, who’s an industrial design graduate from Taiwan’s Tunghai University, might soon change all that though.

Michael came up with this portable folding napkin table that’s essentially a cross between, well, a napkin and a table. Both ends are meant to be worn by people who are sitting opposite one another. The table-slash-napkin has slots for bowls and cups so you can have a proper meal without the fuss.Continue Reading

BarkerBag is a Sleeping Bag For You and Your Canine Companion

BarkerBag

You wouldn’t leave your best friend out in the cold now, would you? There’s no reason to, really, even if he does happen to be of the furry, canine type. That’s because things like the BarkerBag exist now. If you’re fond of taking your dog with you when you go spend some time in the great outdoors or go camping, then this pet-friendly sleeping bag might just be what you’re looking for.

Aside from a sleeping compartment for you, the human, there’s an extension off to one side for your canine best friend. The extension also has a cinchable collar to keep your dog secure in place so he doesn’t run out and run off into the night.

TravelMate: All the Cutlery You Need In a Neat Package

TravelMate

 

Eating takeout using the flimsy plastic spoon and fork that most restaurants hand out sucks, especially if they break or show signs of bending the moment you scoop or try to slice up some grub. Cutlery sets are on-the-go dining are readily available, and one particularly eye-catching and practice option is the TravelMate.

It comes with a detachable fork and a 4.87-inch blade knife with a Paperstone handle. The fork is a multi-tool in itself as well, since it’s also a bottle opener, can opener, flathead screwdriver, and grill scraper. Cut meat, slice veggies, spread butter, turn stuff over on the grill–it seems like there’s little the TravelMate can’t do.

It’s priced at ~$50.

Edilble Business Card Gives You a Boost, Leads You to the Right Direction

Edible Business Card

 

High altitudes do weird things to the human body, even if it might be one that belongs to a seasoned trekker. Dizziness, nausea, fatigue, headaches–these are pains you wouldn’t want to have to go through in the middle of a climb. That’s what the folks from the Kokopelli Backpackers hostel had in mind when they rolled out their edible business cards that double as anti-altitude sickness remedies.

First of all, it’s a business card, so all the hostel’s pertinent contact information are printed on it. Then comes the interesting part: each card has a detachable, edible section made from coca leaves that gives climbers an extra boost as they chew on it.

What a Melon Tent Is a Sight for Sore Eyes

What a Melon Tent

 

What better time to head out and go camping than summer? Fresh air, green grass, birds chirping–it’s time to replace your drab old gray tent with the What a Melon tent by FieldCandy. If you have $655 to spare, that is, because that’s how far this eye-catching tent will set you back.

It might seem like a novelty product, given the fact that it’s essentially a tent that looks like a giant watermelon, but you can expect the usual quality since it’s by FieldCandy after all. It’s made from durable materials that can withstand even the harshest weather conditions. The set comes with a designer flysheet, a matching bag, an innter tent, A-frame poles and pegs, waterproofing, an owner’s manual, and a carry bag to stuff everything in.

Rainmaker Turns Old Soda Bottles Into Watering Cans–Er, Bottles

Rainmaker

 

House plants need constant watering and it’s always better to spread the water out evenly rather than just pouring it on. If you don’t have a watering can and just fill old water bottles up to water your plants, then the Rainmaker is something you need to get. It’s an attachment for plastic bottles that basically transforms it into a watering can of sorts so you can make it rain for your plants with a quick squeeze of the bottle.

The Rainmaker is compatible with most water or soda bottles, although it works best with 1 to 2-liter cola bottles. They’re available online for $11.99.

Spare Tire Mount Grill: No Flat (Stomachs) Here!

Spare Tire Mount Grill

So this is the Spare Tire grill from Front Runner, and the first things you’ll notice are its peculiar-looking legs. In fact, the grill itself looks unlike most of the other grills on the market. The Spare Tire grill won’t be able to replace the grill that’s already in your backyard, but it will be your go-to grill for traveling or when you go camping.

There’s a reason why the grill’s solid steel legs are oriented that way. Staying true to its name, the Spare Tire grill can be hooked over a spare wheel (only those that measure 29” to 37” anyway) so you can fill your car with either more people, more meat, more coolers, or more sleeping bags. The grill is laser cut and forged from stainless steel, with grill and griddle sections so you can cook your food the way you want to.

The Spare Tire grill is available online for $125.
