Eddie Bauer Katabatic 2 Solar Tent

Make sure all your gadgets have plenty of juice for a day of backcountry adventures with the Eddie Bauer Katabatic 2 Solar Tent ($TBA). The whole outfit is based on Eddie Bauer's popular Katabatic expedition tent — a three-person, four-season tent made to be roomy, lightweight, and strong. While still in the development stages, the tent will likely be paired with the Sherpa 50 Solar Recharging Kit from Goal Zero. It packs all the power you need to charge laptops, tablets, lights, cameras, smartphones, and more, while internal wiring will give you plenty of places to hook up. Available next spring.

  • Kite Patch

    For most of us, mosquitos are nothing more than a nuisance we have to tolerate when we spend time outdoors — for the rest, a mosquito bite can mean illness, or even death. The Kite Patch ($35) renders people virtually invisible to mosquitos, without the harmful, nasty chemicals found in many of the solutions we use today. These small stickers adhere to your clothing, disrupting mosquitos' ability to detect the carbon dioxide we exhale. Even better, when you buy ten Kites, they'll send ten more to a family in Uganda, where mosquito-born illnesses are more severe than anywhere else in the world.

  • Leather Fly Swatter

    Nothing disrupts an outdoor meal quite like a swarm of pesky, winged pests. Strike fear into their hearts and thin their numbers with the Leather Fly Swatter ($24). An excellent example of form following function, these stylish leather and steel swatters are as useful as they are good-looking. The leather surface will last a long time, and wipes down easily, so you don't need to leave the splattered remains of dispatched flies all over it (unless you think that sends a message warning off future hordes).
