When you’re planning a trip into the wild, you always need to be well prepared. Nature can be both beautiful and terrifying at times and these two qualities can switch places in a matter of minutes. That is why you must always work on improving your survival skills but also know what tools you need to bring. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best best all-weather gadgets on the web that will, no doubt, make your hunting, fishing, or camping trip much more enjoyable and safe. Take a look at this list and think about investing in at least a couple of these.
There are numerous phone apps out there offering to turn your phone into a night vision camera, but if you want a proper all-weather gadget that actually works, you should give Snooperscope a try. This easily detachable device connects to your phone camera and gives you true night vision. It uses a couple of powerful magnets to attach to your phone, so there’s no need for any additional modifications and it won’t damage your device. Just stick it on and it’s ready for use.
Hydration is extremely important when you’re outdoors (though it’s important indoors as well) but any seasoned outdoor adventurer knows that not every water you find is drinkable. Even though it may seem clear, water can contain a lot of bacteria or other impurities. This is where this simple yet powerful all-weather gadget comes in. Dubbed Aquastiq, this amazing straw-like device filters out almost all of the bacteria found in water, including the vicious Salmonela. It is light and easy to carry, and contains no batteries so it’s completely safe to use. With this, pretty much any water you find can be as fresh as the bottle one.
Northface eTip Gloves
Although these gloves made by the almighty Northface aren’t exactly gadgets, they are immense help when it comes to interacting with them. These eTip gloves have a special structure that allows you to use the touch screen on your mobile phone (or any similar device) easily. This seems like such a minor detail, but anyone who has ever used their phone in the wintertime knows the struggle. No more freezing fingers dragging hopelessly across the display just to dial a number or change the song on your player. Thanks to its structure and functionality, you could easily call these gloves an all-weather gadget.
Buckshot Pro is a three-in-one all-weather gadget that combines a flashlight, wireless speaker, and a powerbank. The best part of it all is that it’s quite small in size and can fit into most pockets. If you don’t feel like carrying such a device in your pocket, you can easily mount it on your bike and carry it with you anywhere. For about 80 bucks, you get a waterproof device that can act both as a speaker and a microphone, connects to any Bluetooth device, charges your phone when necessary and has a powerful flashlight.
