Sea To Summit (STS) has a knack for developing products that are truly useful for lightweight backpacking. On our visit to their booth, their representative Patricia Smith showed us several new products of interest.Ipood! STS claims that this 2.6-ounce camp trowel is the lightest in the world. We know that many UL and SUL backpackers pooh-pooh carrying the extra weight, but for LW backpackers at least, this is definitely a product worth considering. The Ipood! Is made of 6066-T6 alluminum alloy, collapses to a small size, and the handle is hollow to hold toilet tissue. It retails for $16.95. STS definitely came up with a clever name for this product; their tagline is Ipood! And I’m Proud!
The Ipood! is a collapsible backpacking trowel that holds TP in the handle.
The Pocket Shower is basically a dry bag with a shower nozzle on the bottom. You twist the nozzle to regulate the flow.
Sea to Summit’s lightweight Pocket Towel is made of microfiber and is very absorbent.
The Pocket Soap is biodegradable and you can take only what you need on a trip.
A Trash Dry Bag may be very useful to contain messy trash on a group backpacking trip or a canoeing trip.
The new Pilbara Hat is very lightweight and has lots of mesh area on the sides for extra ventilation. It’s also very attractive.
We certainly appreciate Sea To Summit’s contributions to the Leave No Trace cause, while providing truly useful products for backpackers.
