Brunton Restore Solar Power Pack
Extended trips into the backcountry mean extended time without electricity. But if simplicity in nature doesn’t do it for you, stay charged and connected with Brunton’s Restore solar power pack. Two polycrystalline solar panels capture the sun’s energy and give juice to the battery, which can fully charge small electronics (think: your phone or GPS unit) via the USB port. A rugged rubberized shell protects the battery, and the whole unit is water-resistant should you hit bad weather. At half-a-pound, it’s surely small and light—stuff it in your pack and hardly notice it’s there till you need it. ($120; store.bruntonoutdoor.com)
