Check out the videos below if you are remotely interested in cargo. I really think this is a game changer for the US, and getting cargo in front of the bike. Check out The LIFT (now on Kickstarter): http://kck.st/29u8Rst

Showers Pass Syncline Jacket

One of my favorite “do all” jackets is a lightweight rain jacket that fits well hiking, biking, and running. I can do almost any activity in it, and it has paid for it’s price tag many times over. By the look of it, this new Showers Pass Syncline Jacket would fall in the same category.

The idea of doing more with less is a novel concept, but consumerism often takes hold of us. We have a specialized product that was made to do ONE thing really well, and nothing else decently well. One of my favorite “do all” jackets is a lightweight rain jacket that fits well hiking, biking, and running. I can do almost any activity in it, and it has paid for it’s price tag many times over. By the look of it, the new Showers Pass Syncline Jacket would fall in that “do all” jacket category as long as it fits you well!

Kickstarter: LANTERN The Ultimate Multifunctional Light

With the over abundance of available outdoor gear it is nice to find products that can do multiple things to limit your purchases. Meet LANTERN, this gadget is one part lantern/flashlight/charger/bike headlight, and possible photography spotlight. The idea of a swiss army knife of lighting is intriguing.

With the over abundance of available outdoor gear it is nice to find products that can do multiple things to limit your purchases. Meet LANTERN, this gadget is one part lantern/flashlight/charger/bike headlight, and possible photography spotlight. The idea of a swiss army knife of lighting is intriguing. I really like that it is a 1000 lumens, and the rotating bike mount could really come in handy. The prototype looks a bit on the plastic side, but I guess that is what prototypes are for. I don’t personally plan on backing this product thanks to having too many lighting gadgets in my life, but if you are in the market for a new light for camping, or riding I would put the LANTERN Kickstarter on your list to check out.
