Shark Deterrent Wetsuits

Avoid becoming another cautionary tale on the next Shark Week with Shark Deterrent Wetsuits ($450). While sharks have pretty sophisticated senses for hunting down prey, they depend a lot on their sight to actually locate and target their next meal. These wet suits use specialized patterns to break up and diffuse light, making your shape harder to discern, and ultimately making it harder for a shark to see you. The Diverter has a striped pattern that is best suited for diving and snorkeling in murky waters, while the Elude Mid is made for diving in the shallows, and the Elude Dark works well in the deep.

  • 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.

  • FlameStower

    When you venture out into the wilderness, most of the time all you want to do is completely disconnect from the rest of the world, but all too often, that's just not an option. When you can't afford to be completely off the grid, but know you'll still need to recharge your gadgets, throw the FlameStower ($60) into your pack. All it needs to generate enough electricity to charge the batteries of your USB-connected devices is the heat from your camping or cook fire. Lightweight and reliable, it works by conducting heat to a thermoelectric generator, which is in contact with a water reservoir — the combination of hot and cold produces enough juice to charge your device in as little as three hours.
