But in this super-digital age, it's often the comforts of technology that insures a safe and sound voyage through challenging elements - and they need recharging too.
Built to withstand everything from deep ocean spray to arctic conditions, the Goal Zero Sherpa Adventure Kit is comprised of two primary components: a solar power collector and a power pack. Using the Sherpa 50 as an example (120 pictured here), after about 8 hours of ideal sunlight you'll store about 50 watt-hours of power and the equivalent of 30,000 AA batteries.
Basecamps aren't stock full of GPS devices, computers, sat phones and other necessary electronics just because they're cool to tote along. [Well, they are cool, but that's not the point here.] In fact, they could make the difference between life and death. And they have.
Charge it. ($359-$2,219)
