BELLINGHAM, Wash. (January 22, 2019) – GEAR AID is expanding its line of Adventure Tools with the launch of four new products: Camp Carabiner, Camp Line Kit, Taut Line Kit, and Carabiner Light Kit. Designed in-house, these unique tools are interchangeable and easy to use – enhancing the outdoor experience for adventurers of all ages. The suggested retail price ranges from $11-$30.
With the Camp Carabiner, quickly suspend gear with knot-free ease. Featuring GEAR AID’s signature twist-and-clip design, attaching backpacks, gravity filters, lanterns, and other gear securely on a paracord has never been easier. Just thread cord and twist. Once anchored, it won’t slip off. Each carabiner swivels 360° and can hold up to 25 lbs. For a complete system, use the Camp Line Kit, which includes two Camp Carabiners, 30 ft of reflective 550 Paracord, and two Line Tensioners. If carabiners are unnecessary, use the Taut Line Kit to make a clothesline in no time and dry towels, life jackets, wetsuits or booties. This kit includes the GEAR AID 50 ft reflective 550 Paracord and four Line Tensioners. The innovative Line Tensioners feature numbered slots, so a simple figure 8 knot is all that’s needed to hang a taut line.
For adventurers that are active at night, GEAR AID offers the Carabiner Light Kit. Illuminate the campsite, trail or sidewalk with this multipurpose and rechargeable LED light. Use it as a mini lantern, flashlight, signal or nightlight. An included webbing adapter easily mounts the light on backpack straps for lighting on the go. The light is detachable from the carabiner, so when lighting is no longer required it can be used as the Camp Carabiner to simply hang gear.
GEAR AID’s growing line of Adventure Tools are a departure from its historical care and repair products, however the company continues to offer simple solutions that make the outdoor experience better. “In launching these new products, we addressed our goal to minimize plastic in our packaging, while utilizing new processes and techniques to improve sustainability,” says Sean Fields, VP of Brand. “This project began by exploring the best way to attach outdoor equipment to ropes and webbing, in order to help organize and manage gear,” adds Ray Klein, design director. All four products will be available in select stores by spring 2019 and online at gearaid.com.
