Peak Oil Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Take an old material and proofing method and apply it in a modern design — this is the Peak Oil Jacket. Canvas proofed with bees wax and linseed oil, kangaroo leather details and built with minimal seams to an open source pattern. This is a unique jacket suitable for a wide range of applications. First things first, I have worn this jacket everyday since it arrived. I love it! I wear it around the house, out to the washing line, putting the rubbish out. Any excuse to wear it.

From this design… Full review

For a better grip and reduction in weight the designers eliminated the center… Full review

Amok Draumr

rated 4 of 5 stars Camp in a bag, setup in less than half the time of any other tent I have seen. Extraordinary breakthrough in hammock design. There is a learning curve. This is a limited first edition Draumr by Amok.  This is a new start up company out of Norway that has come up with a revolution in hammock camping. First shipped end of July 2014.
