The free spirited Kammok Sunda tent, a pair of Mujjo’s Leather Touchscreen Gloves for hassle-free finger swiping, the rugged Aer for GroPro dart, and the odor fighting yet stylish SilverAir Shirt.
You’ve likely already heard of Kammok from their camping hammocks amongst other outdoor gear. The Kammok Sunda is their first tent, but the influence of their previous free-spirited products on its design is apparent. Set it up on the ground and it’s an excellent freestanding tent with 35 square feet of floor space and room for two, with a longer-than-normal length that will easily sleep freakishly tall campers. If you find yourself over rocky or highly uneven ground just set it up as a hammock shelter instead between two trees (albeit at the cost of sleeping just one, not two). The ultralight tent includes a Nannoet no-see-um mesh that grants greater outwards visibility while keeping even the tiniest bugs out, a heat-reflecting outer tent fabric that doesn’t turn your tent into a greenhouse, and DAC poles for the frame, all sitting on a nylon taffeta “tub” floor to keep water out. Both the mesh and outer fabric are independent of one another so you can set up the tent as desired or even ditch the mesh to further curb weight. Other notable features include Lunarlight diffuser pockets in which to place a flashlight to light up the inside of the tent, plenty of inner pockets and loops to stash and hang gear, and nothing but YKK for zippers.

Leather Touchscreen Gloves
Leather gloves and capacitive touch screens never really played well together – until now. Mujjo’s Leather Touchscreen Gloves combines warm, supple ethiopian lambskin with a contemporary design and a natural wool lining that handily keeps the wind and cold at bay. Of course, their spectacular conductive skin-mimicking properties are the main selling point, making them compatible with just about every modern touchscreen device, though it doesn’t hurt that these gloves are treated for full water-resistance and are adjustable – if slightly – thanks to a wrist strap that snaps to one of two press studs size settings.

Aer For GoPro
Your GoPro is fairly rugged. Definitely not rugged enough to throw it several dozen feet in the air and let it crash back down bare, though. But pop it in an Aer and you can do just that. This giant Nerf-like foam dart fits your action camera in its head, working nicely with the GoPro HERO 3, 4, and 5 (this last one with an insert to make up for its smaller size). A hefty foam bumper protects the cam from eventual impact while a large hole keeps its wide-angle view unobstructed. Its large fins keep the frame very stable and, importantly, it’s both very portable and completely waterproof, floating if it lands in a body of water.

For the sake of argument, let’s say you move, not across town or to another city, but in 3 dimensions as you walk, jog, work and play. Now further conjecture that certain movements are more strenuous than others and that these movements cause the body to produce heat, heat that must be dispersed to keep the body at a comfortable temperature. Where does the heat dump begin? Armpits, the circle of damp around your collar, and the small of your back. And because visible moisture isn’t enough, odor joins the mix. SilverAir takes on the seemingly unbeatable duo with a shirt that fights odor naturally, all while keeping its composure. Italian yarns are woven with pure silver to create a shirt that helps you stay dry, cool and comfortable, even if worn a few days in a row. The silver fibers naturally fight odor causing bacteria and need no replenishing, lasting the life of the shirt. Sweat + Body Proteins = Odor. Odor + Ag (Silver) = Neutralized Odor. Who’d have thought chemistry could be so practical?
