One of the greatest pastimes that most people enjoy is being outdoors. The smell of fresh air, feeling the ocean breeze kiss your skin, cooling off in lakes and rivers during the hot summer days, but one thing that often hinders people from truly enjoying the great outdoors is the limitation of the products that one can fully go solar with.

Back in the day when you head about the perfect outdoorsman tools, you would think of fishing vests, tents, and propane lanterns along with other traditional camping gear.

Technology is etching its way into outdoors men's lives, one solar energy product at a time.
