Tactical Poncho

Think Ponchos aren’t exciting? Maybe you’ve never seen the Hazard4 Poncho Villa Technical Soft Shell Poncho. (Not to be confused with Pancho Villa–the Mexican Revolutionary General.)

Ti2 Sentinel

Ti2 Sentinel puts a new design spin on an old caching idea. And to be frank, it seems pretty darn awesome.
