Life Without Plastic. 2 comments | Posted By Sarah Wylie On March 8, 2017 We all k now how good of a job plastic does at keeping water out but can non-plastic natural materials be made water-resistant too?

Life Without Plastic

Absolutely! When making more plastic-free choices we are often opting for more natural materials, some of which are not typically known for being as reliably waterproof as plastic.

Made in wherever: ethical hiking gear (I/II) - Scandinavian-hiking.com

This has been hugely informative not only in revealing to me the horrifying and depressing human rights transgressions made in the quest for cheap clothing and gear, but also in showing the gear companies in a new light. It’s interesting to wander through Addnature and see which brands must be making ridiculous profits with premium priced gear subcontracted out at arm’s length to the cheapest cut’n’sew factories, and to see which brands manage to sell competitively priced gear despite manufacturing out of their own factories in high-cost developed countries. This started five years ago when I had an argument with a friend.

Mountain UltraLight: Make Your Own Cuben Fiber Backpack! If you've been thinking about making some of your own backpacking gear, I say go for it.

Mountain UltraLight: Make Your Own Cuben Fiber Backpack!

All you need are some basic tools (i.e. an inexpensive sewing machine and fabric cutting tools) and lots of motivation. When I started making my own gear, I had never used a sewing machine before. I started with silnylon seconds, a reasonably affordable trail worthy fabric, which was a good choice because I made lots of mistakes teaching myself how to design and sew durable outdoor gear. The first thing you need is a solid plan. Portable Wind Turbine Makes Roughing It Easier. It’s 20 below and the sides of your Arctic Oven tent are snapping in the wind, but you have a hot cup of coffee and your laptop is juiced, thanks to the Revolver.

Portable Wind Turbine Makes Roughing It Easier

Revolver, a favorite in frog’s first internal design competition, Future or Fiction, comes across solidly future, delivering 35 watts of wind power even in the most temperate of breezes. In addition to being very lightweight, and thus portable, the prototype for this mobile energy-on-the-go is also very easy to set up. Simply attach (or unfold) the die-cast magnesium legs, push the collar on the central column (where the flexible blades are attached) up and hold it in place with (presumably) a cotter pin assembly, and you have a working wind turbine.

Bicycle Camper Prototype I learned a lot from my last bicycle camper prototype. One thing I didn’t like was the limited room in the tapered front, which made turning around inside rather difficult. The idea to make a bicycle camper with the resemblance of an airstream nose came to me a while back, but instead of making a full scale mock-up like my previous project, I decided first to make a 1/4 scale model. Again, this frameless arced design is borrowed from the ‘Emergency Homeless Shelter’ design and build techniques. The model proved that the main body, minus the floor and rear wall, would only need two 4x8ft sheets of 4mm thick fluted plastic. $150 bike camper: DIY micro mobile home (downloadable plans)
