Fall 2018 Kickstarter Roundup

Fall 2018 Kickstarter Roundup

The Cnoc Vecto is a thruhiker's dream brought to reality by backers of our successful June 2017 Kickstarter campaign. In support of the outdoor equipment cottage industry, we want to highlight some excellent campaigns that we think are worth backing.

Lumapod - The World's Fastest Tripod

The Lumapod is already well funded, but you should still become a backer to get yours at a discounted price. It's a lightweight tripod (with a name that sounds like a Pokemon) that can be set up as quickly as four seconds (probably with practice). The Go85 is and 400g and designed for your phone or a light camera weighing up to 1kg. The Go210 is 690g and can support heavier cameras up to 2kg. If you're lugging your DLSR around, what is an additional 690g?

World's First Ultralight Food Hanging System

 

No one loves the hassle of keeping your food away from bossy (and dangerous) bears and eerily intelligent raccoons. This light (6.5oz) and foldable system combines pulleys with items at hand (rocks) to keep your precious nourishment away from determined and ravenous critters.

Litelok Silver: The world's lightest secure bike lock

This lightweight (630g-830g) bolt-cutterproof lock should catch the attention of bikepacking and biketouring adventurers. It's flexible (but not foldable) and can be mounted across the top tube where it should stay out of trouble, or around the waist if necessary. The company offers insurance for the occasion that your bike is stolen while using their product, but the requirements for a claim are pretty strict.

Extreme Motus: World's Most Versatile Wheelchair

Everyone who wants to experience the awe of the mountains should be able to access these beautiful summits. This relatively lightweight (49lbs) all-terrain wheelchair will allow able-bodied people to help their disabled loved ones up the trail safely and comfortably.

End date: November 15, 2018

Highline: A feature documentary on the Uinta Highline Trail 

We're particularly interested in this documentary, not just because the cinematography is stunning, but because it was a demanding 104 mile route on a trail less traveled with only one opportunity to resupply. The equipment you need to bring to get that amazing footage isn't lightweight.

End date: December 17, 2018
