Our 5 favourite outdoor gear Kickstarter campaigns

Our 5 Favourite Outdoor Gear Kickstarter Campaigns

Who doesn’t love a good Kickstarter campaign? Not only do you get to support makers and help bring products to market that wouldn’t otherwise get made – but you also usually save some pennies because of the direct-to-consumer model that Kickstarter thrives on. So today on the blog, we’re bringing you a roundup of our 5 favourite Kickstarter campaigns related to outdoor gear. Let’s take a look at our picks!

The LoftTek Adventure Jacket

The LoftTek Adventure Jacket absolutely smashed its funding goals and is now available on general sale! And in our view, it looks well worth the money.

The idea behind this jacket is to combine the best aspects of down and synthetic insulation. So you’ll be getting a jacket that’s lightweight and packable but keeps its insulating properties when wet. It’s easy to see why the LoftTek was such a heavily backed project!

The LoftTek Adventure Jacket can be found on Kickstarter here.

The Chammock

Weighing in at only 265 grams, the Chammock might just be the lightest camping chair option we’ve ever come across. You can use it both as a normal chair, or – much more fun in our view – as a swing! 

The Chammock has a pillow pocket behind the head and a storage pouch between the legs which makes a neat holster for your book or phone. Some handy armholes in the sides of the hammock help to keep the weight down, and also help you avoid feeling too cocooned.

The Freestyle BivyPack

The Freestyle BivyPack is a backpack that transforms into a simple, lightweight Bivy bag. It’s also designed to be accommodated as carry-on luggage, making it a good option for frequent flyers.

The best part? This combined shelter and backpack weighs in at only 450 grams! While the limited space of a Bivy may not be for everyone, there are certainly times when it just makes sense. It’s difficult to argue against the sheer ingenuity and weight-saving of the design either.

The Muncher Titanium Multi-Utensil

Ever looked at a Spork and thought to yourself: I just wish it could do more? Evidently, the folks over at Full Windsor have, as they’ve designed a gadget that packs an incredible 10 functions into about the same size and weight as the humble Spork.

Featuring – amongst other things – a peeler, bottle opener, and fire flint, The Muncher is a must-have for any serious camper!

The SunStrap Solar Charger

The SunStrap is a Solar Charger designed to be retrofitted onto any bag or camera strap. This ‘always out’ design allows you to tap the power of the sun as soon as you set out on your day – no more fumbling bulky solar packs out of your bag!

It has a whopping 5600 mAh battery encased in the sleeve, which should be enough to power most phones 2 times over. Although some may not be crazy about SunStrap’s aesthetics, we think the renewable energy look is definitely in this year. And every other year, for that matter 🙂
