The Hyperlite Ultamid 2 is the Ultimate UltraLight Tent

As gear becomes more and more technologically advanced, tents are becoming lighter and lighter. None, however, quite reach the lightweight, durable, simplicity of the Hyperlite Ultamid 2. Weighing only 1.19 pounds (without insert or floor), the Ultamid 2 barely weighs more than the hiking boot on your foot, and far less than a bottle of water in your pack, yet is one of the most durable, rugged and convenient tent designs you’ll get your hands on.

Steel Mace Workout Gear

Ancient Weapon Turned Workout Gear–Grab Your Mace

No time for the gym? No room for a bulky home gym? Want streamline workout gear? Set for Set Steel Mace is for you. The Steel Mace or “Gada” was originally used as a deadly weapon in warfare by Hindu and Persian warriors in the 13th century. With time, the Steel Mace became a training tool due to its functionality and ease of use. The steel mace is the ultimate full body conditioning tool. What makes the mace a unique training tool is the fact almost all of its weight is in the ball head. This results in uneven weight distribution which engages smaller stabilizing muscles around your joints. This increases your core and rotational strength. The mace size, in comparison to a home gym, makes it an attractive alternative for your workouts.
