GEARPODS® LAUNCHES MODULAR ADVENTURE GEAR
New compact, flexible gear system delivers safety and preparedness without having to pack the entire garage.
POLSON, MT.— August 26, 2009, GearPods Corporation today announced the launch and immediate availability of the GearPods Adventure Series (a range of compact ready-made adventure and survival kits) and the GearPods Connect System (a flexible gear container system made of durable, watertight, lightweight polycarbonate).
Designed for the serious outdoor enthusiast to the casual day hiker, GearPods offers several advantages over traditional survival kits and gear alike:
- Modular inter-connect kit design for packing only what’s needed
- Durable polycarbonate withstands abuse in the field
- Lightweight kits maximize pound-for-pound capabilities
- Compact tube-style design fits common sports bottle holders
- Flexibility supports on-the-fly gear organization and access
- Watertight containers keep gear dry
Built on the GearPods Connect System, the GearPods Adventure Series kits cover the essentials of adventure and survival, with high quality components intended for routine use, not just in emergency situations. Available kits include first aid, survival tools, shelter and cooking.
“Before GearPods outdoor enthusiasts had no choice between adventure or survival kits that fit in the palm of your hand and a backpack full of gear, forcing the choice between size and capabilities”, said James Davies, GearPods CEO. “GearPods provides the best of both worlds - highly compact yet capable adventure gear but without the weight and bulk downsides you’d associate with traditional backcountry gear. With GearPods you can successfully balance the desire to go lightweight with the need to stay prepared and safe”.
GearPods are suitable for many outdoor sports and activities, including: hiking, backpacking, climbing, mountain biking, kayaking, adventure racing, winter sports and camping.
GearPods Adventure Series kits range from $17.95 for a single kit up to $169.95 for a combination of four kits. GearPods products are available today at the GearPods online store, www.gearpods.com
