Gear that Brings Nature and Technology Together
Joby GripTight GorillaPod ($29.95) Joby's GripTight GorillaPod stand is a portable tripod built for your iPhone, with three strong, flexible magnetic feet designed to adjust to the environment around you. Nature selfies are a cinch when you attach this bendy tripod to tree branches or uneven boulders. And unlike most stiff stands, the GorillaPod moves and twists to fit into pockets, packs, or bags. Don't be fooled by how small and compact this stand is, though—it's built to withstand the bangs and bumps of outdoor life.
Power Practical PowerPot 5 ($99) Being off the grid doesn't mean you have to be off your iPhone. Power Practical successfully funded the PowerPot on Kickstarter in 2012, producing a lightweight camping pot and portable USB charger in one that lets you charge your device while preparing meals on your campfire or stove. No matter what time of day it is, the PowerPot is designed to bring you the power you need, whether it's running on wood, butane, or propane.
