Qlipter

How many of us wish we had another pair of hands? I do. Often. Whether I am carrying too many groceries or all of the kid’s stuff, I frequently just need an extra hook.

And it is such a helpful invention- the Qlipter is a combination of a carabiner and a hook and can support up to 50 pounds! You can use it for everything- when camping outdoors you can hang stuff on a tree, when you’re travelling it can attach your luggage, and of course, with the kids, it can attach to your stroller and carry the endless quantities of equipment we seem to accumulate.

HC1 Travel Trailer

It is my dream to one day take my family on a long trailer trip and when I saw the HC1 Travel Trailer I got all excited again. Unlike most trailers, the design of the HC1 is especially light (1100 Lbs. dry weight) which means that it can be towed with a standard vehicle! Another outstanding feature of the HC1 is that its internal configuration is modular- you can take out the interior if you want to use it as a hauler (to carry a kayak or motorcycle) or pack it full of features- a bed the size of your choice, a kitchenette, toilet, storage etc. Continue reading

WOOD.b

Boltz & Saos (BSG) was founded by Thierry Boltz and Claude Saos, a brilliant team of designers working out of their studio housed in Strasbourg, France.

From the start, they were no strangers to the phrase: “don’t reinvent the wheel”, but that is exactly what Boltz & Saos did. And they did it with flare! Continue reading
