Eaton always has some great devices that get their power from sources like solar and hand cranks. They’re perfect for emergencies, power outages and for What to Do After a Storm. Altitude Sports
Some of my fondest memories of my father involve camping. When I was a child, we would slip our canoes into some central Kentucky stream and ride the waters until our aching arms forced us to make camp. Or sometimes we’d stake out an isolated corner of the 110-acre farm where I’d grown up on which to pitch a tent. In fact, I distinctly recall climbing out of my sleeping bag on a foggy morning to the smell of sizzling bacon.
That was first thought when it came to the sleeping bag. After all, they’ve been around for a long time. How much innovation can you pack into such an old concept? I learned soon enough when my 8-year-old son field tested the Grizzly with me. Though most sleeping bags aren’t renowned for their spaciousness, it proved to be surprisingly comfy. If you want to get quality camping gear for your trip, consider checking the Altitude Sports online catalog.
This year they had the Eton FR1 (a smartphone charger, weather radio and flashlight with hand crank charging), the Scorpion (which combines the features found on the FR1, plus an AM/FM radio, an audio in port, a bottle opener, and the option of solar charging), and the Blackout Buddy H2O, which gives you 72 hours of light without batteries – just dip it in water and it activates!
