Field Trip Beef Jerky

Field Trip Beef Jerky

Beef jerky should always be at arms length when you are on the move, which is why we like Field Trip Beef Jerky ($18 for three pack).  With three flavors: Original, Honey Spice, and Teryaki, this jerky will keep you from getting hungry no matter your adventure. Field Trip Beef Jerky is the product of three guys looking for a protein and nutrient rich snack to munch on while they were trekking, or training, or both. All natural, all delicious.

Marmot Urban Hauler

Marmot Urban Hauler

Planning an inner-city hiking trip during the fierce Winter? Consider gearing-up with the Marmot Urban Hauler ($50).  This Japanese fishing bag style backpack is made from UpCycled® fabrics (the greenest of the green), and the internal organizer pocket lets you stash smaller goods for easy access. It’s practical gear for city-dwellers, and even more practical for jetsetters (think: overhead compartment).

Paracord Dog Leash

SGT Knots Paracord Dog Leash

If you and Fido are the adventurous type, be prepared for the unthinkable with this Paracord Dog Leash ($40) from SGT Knots.   With 16 different colors to choose from, this dog leash stands at 5 feet in length, 8 strands of US made paracord totaling approximately 60 feet of paracord. And if you aren’t a hiker, this dog leash will make you and your pup look like secret MacGyvers on the paved running path.

Gauswheel

Gauswheel

If a bike and a skateboard had an child, it would be the Gauswheel (~$100).  At first we weren’t really sure how it worked, but upon further review we see that this push-powered, big-wheel rig is the coolest/weirdest ride since the caster board.  We have yet to see somebody hit the vert ramp with it, but we appreciate the ingenuity nonetheless.

City Boy Picnic Grill

City Boy Picnic Grill

When “roughing it” doesn’t exactly carry the same meaning for you as it does for everyone else, your ability to create a fire purely from sticks is not very likely.  Lucky for you there is the City Boy Picnic Grill ($229).  This powder-coated stainless steel grill runs on a 225g standard gas cartridge, so your next camping trip will include less cold canned food and more warm meats, even if you didn’t kill it yourself.
