Paxis Pack Review

In the world of backpacks, I’ve seen a lot of gimmicks and novelty features that are integrated with the bag that really don’t add to the overall experience or functionality. These days, you can find no shortage of backpacks with integrated mobile technology. This really just adds up to components and wires that will break down in all-weather situations, and bring little more than new ways to connect your iphone to your backpack. Not very interesting. Paxis has done something much more.

Chrysalis Hammock Tent Review

The Chrysalis Hammock Tent and Campersleeve is a unique tent for backpackers, paddlers and campers. The hammock / tent combo helps you be one with nature.
